Cottage & Lakefront Living Show - Grand Rapids
Unspoiled, Timeless & True…
Say “the cottage” to almost any Michigander and memories rush forward like waves: the screech of gulls, or the squeal of old oarlocks; falling asleep to the rhythm of the surf, or waking to a chorus of frogs; sand in the sheets, or fish scales in the sink. Mostly, though, they’re memories of family, because here in the Great Lake State the cottage is a tradition that’s handed down from one generation to the next.
