Cottage
River Meadow Cottage is on the low banks of the Grand River and is tucked into a corner lot where you can stay in your bathing suit all day and basks in the sun from sunrise to sunset. The tide is out most of the day and young children can splash around in bathtub warm water chasing minnows and hermit crabs and never get deeper than up to their knees. The sun porch is a window-enclosed room perched on the riverbank and offers a lovely place to read, snooze or dine while watching the sunset. Under giant birches, the motor home part of the cottage has been built out to add on a bedroom, a TV room and a sun room. The motor home kitchen is fully stocked and has an electric stove, dishwasher, fridge, a dinette booth, a day bed and a half bath. This camp cottage is not fancy (no gra... River Meadow Cottage is on the low banks of the Grand River and is tucked into a corner lot where you can stay in your bathing suit all day and basks in the sun from sunrise to sunset. The tide is out most of the day and young children can splash around in bathtub warm water chasing minnows and hermit crabs and never get deeper than up to their knees. The sun porch is a window-enclosed room perched on the riverbank and offers a lovely place to read, snooze or dine while watching the sunset. Under giant birches, the motor home part of the cottage has been built out to add on a bedroom, a TV room and a sun room. The motor home kitchen is fully stocked and has an electric stove, dishwasher, fridge, a dinette booth, a day bed and a half bath. This camp cottage is not fancy (no granite or steel for those who need modern and sleek), but it has everything a young family or a group of friends need for comfort and convenience with the added pleasure of being immersed in the sights and sounds of nature. Sleeping areas: 1. Bedroom with a queen size bed. 2. The front room has a couch and chair for TV watching and a single bed for sleeping. 3. There is another single bed up in the motor home and a sliding door to close this area off at night. 4. Behind the cottage, there is a small cabin with a washer and dryer and a full bath with a shower, sink, and toilet. There is a set of bunk beds in this small cabin where teens or young adults could sleep. This cottage may not offer the space for multi-generational families or unlimited Wifi and privacy need for most teenagers. Because there is no landline phone service in this area, we cannot purchase an unlimited WiFi package. However, there is Satellite TV service and DVD player. Nature lovers will appreciate the song birds, shore birds, hawks and eagles. Everyone will enjoy exploring the beach whether it is shelling, swimming, building sandcastles or taking long walks and if you don't want to walk far, take out the canoes and explore the shoreline. River Meadow Cottage offers you the closeness to nature found in a campground but it also has the comfort, convenience and privacy of a cottage. More

The woman who owns the cottage appears to be genuinely kind and well meaning, however the pictures are very misleading. The beach is completely covered in a foot of seaweed...no sand whatsoever. The camper part of the cottage is actually an old bus that is...More

Hello there: I am so sorry you and your guests had such a difficult time at the cottage. Our family was not fortunate enough to have any ‘tallness’ to limit our movement in the bus, but now I stress that anyone over 5’10” who wishes...More
