Lake Odessa has been a vacation destination since the 1800's, when numerous resorts and hotels dominated the town and lakefront. The activities and attractions of centuries past haven't changed, with a few new ones added to the mix. Your group will find recreation, refuge, and fun; in a friendly small town atmosphere.
The Beach Cottage is a place to relax, re-group and re-connect. Stay in and play games, soak in the lakeside hot tub, and watch Netflix together. Or go boating, fishing, and swimming; then roast s'mores by the campfire. Saunter next door for a beer, some bowling, or a fantastic meal at Buddy's on the Beach. Take a short walk downtown for some antique shopping, followed by a treat at the ice cream shop. Hang out at the park with huge wooden playground on the way back.
Check out live Americana music at Bob's Barn Jamboree, just one mile away. Use the included rowboat and 2 kayaks to explore the waters. Boat through a canal to Tupper Lake, a smaller fishing lake nearby, that has even more shoreline and canals to explore. Word has it that this is the only property on the lake which boasts a deck that actually extends over the water. And this one-of-a-kind, grandfathered-in, infinity style deck sprawls out to fill the entire backyard.
The public Beach (just steps away) features a sandy lakefront that gently slopes down to the water. A large floating dock has benches for lounging, spots for fishing, and is fun to walk on. The area contained by the floating docks provides a no-boat swimming experience for all ages. The Beach volleyball court is open to the public for impromptu games (volleyball available for you to use). Enjoy snacks from the Dairy Queen next door at the picnic tables on the Beach.
The Cottage has heat and air conditioning throughout, as well as plenty of windows with screens to open if desired. There are two flat screen televisions. Both have Roku, from which you can access our complimentary Netflix account for TV and movies. There is a stereo system downstairs, with amp and speakers, to which you can plug in your device. Pontoon boat rental is available through a third party if booked early enough, ask your host for details.
Just 15 minutes to the north is Ionia State Recreation Area, a huge 4,500 acre playground for outdoor enthusiasts of nearly any persuasion. There's a river and lake; hiking, mountain biking, dog and horse trails; awesome bird watching; wildflowers galore; and come winter, fantastic sledding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. The 125 mile long Grand River Valley trail runs right through it. It's like being up north in the UP, without the long road trip. And just five minutes east from there is the city of Ionia, offering chain restaurants and big box stores.
Though you could easily linger all day and night at the cottage, you'll probably venture out to explore, and you're in the perfect spot to take advantage of all the town and surrounding areas have to offer. To experience the lake lifestyle of our resort town, just put on your shoes. The Beach Cottage is the fourth house down from the public beach and docks, and from Buddy's on the Beach, an insanely popular bowling alley/restaurant/bar. And it sits just two blocks away from Lake Odessa's quaint downtown, dotted with antique and gift shops and independently owned eateries, and home to a picturesque public park with a gigantic wooden playscape.
Within that tight radius of your temporary home base, you'll find plenty to keep you busy.
Just 16 minutes to the West lies Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park, a great zoo located out in the country. Each summer, they feature many of the animals you associate with zoos, but their specialty is getting the visitor as close to the animals as possible. You can even feed many of the animals by hand.
Within 2 miles, you will find hiking, biking, tennis, pickleball, soccer, baseball, bowling, antique shops, restaurants, fairs and festivals, and more.
