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.
West Michigan's First Cottage Show
The cottage is such a huge part of living in Michigan that it's difficult to believe that just a few years ago, this became the first show dedicated to cottage and lakefront living. We now operate Cottage & Lakefront Living Shows to cover both Michigan coasts, with the addition of the Novi show. Our patrons are the best example of how much a part of life Michigan's lakes and cottages are to its residents.
