Half Moon Cottage is situated above the eastern shore of Half Moon Lake in the Pinckney Rec Area. This is the perfect getaway for couples, sleeps up to 4, and provides all of the comforts of home. Central AC, unlimited hot water, and a stand-by generator will ensure that your visit will be relaxing and worry free.

This is our personal family cottage and we're happy to share it with you. It is very special to us and when we rent it, we are renting it to our “friends”.

Welcome!

The space
As mentioned, this is our personal family cottage that we’ve owned for several years. This is not a hotel and it should never be treated as such. A stay at Half Moon Cottage is something to be savored. Unfortunately we have had recent guests treat our home with great disrespect, so we’ve changed up how we approach our rentals. We now require a $200 Security Deposit that is fully refundable if you've followed the rules for staying at the Cottage.

After you finish reading about the features of the cottage, please be sure to go to “THINGS TO KNOW” / "HOUSE RULES", to understand our requirements for staying at the Cottage. When you make a request to stay and we accept it, it is assumed that you have read all of the requirements associated with your visit and you agree to them. If you cannot agree to them, please do not request a stay at our cottage.


Up front, if you have no reviews to back up the kind of person that you are, please tell us about yourself and your visit when you place your request to stay.


The cottage provides everything you will need to enjoy your stay. It is peaceful, relaxing, and best of all, quiet. You will enjoy your own private oasis in the woods. Sitting on the front patio, you and your guests will enjoy magnificent sunsets from across the lake. The cottage also features a campfire area and a hot tub that also provides excellent views of the lake and the stars above. The hot tub accommodates 2, is available year round, and is always clean and filled with fresh water, ready for each new guest's arrival.

Our Wi-Fi will keep you as connected as you choose to be. (or not!) Please bring your own media stick to plug into the wall mounted, flat screen TV. Cable is NOT provided. You will enjoy a fully equipped, full size kitchen, complete with a gas oven / range, refrigerator / freezer with ice maker, standard dishwasher, coffee maker and garbage disposal.

The Master Suite is private, has a new quality queen bed with its own closet and entrance to the shared bathroom that features a walk-in shower. Additional sleeping space is provided in the form of a new pull-out queen bed, featuring an air mattress in the living room sofa. 4 guests can be very comfortable and not at all cramped in this lovely, modern cottage.

Where you’ll be

Gregory, Michigan, United States

The property is situated in the 11,000 acre Pinckney Rec Area that is also connected to the nearby Waterloo Rec Area by the 35 mile long Waterloo-Pinckney Trail. These forest lands are pristine with many trails open to the public including the Potawatomi Trail that passes through oak and pine forests, swamps, and open meadows. These trails offer some of the best hiking, cross country skiing, mountain biking and hunting in the State of Michigan.

Access to the lake is only ⅛ mile away by road and through the Half Moon State Park entrance where a day pass may have to be purchased to enter. The area offers pavilions, cooking sites, and portable toilets as you enjoy yourself on the beach or take a swim in the clean waters of Half Moon Lake. If you are coming to boat or fish, a public boat launch, visible from the cottage, is available with plenty of parking while you enjoy your day on the water. Overnight docking is not available but the cottage offers adequate parking to accommodate your boat and trailer. Kayaks can be easily launched from the beach at the park. Half Moon Lake is 236 acres in size, over 80 feet deep, and is connected to a chain of lakes that provides over a thousand acres of pristine waters to explore.
