Cottage Profile The original Breaker’s Mansion was built over 100 years ago by the Vanderbilt Dynasty. Their Breaker’s sits on a 100’ cliff over looking the Atlantic Ocean. Our Breaker’s sits on a rocky shoreline in a rustic setting over looking the pristine waters of Lake Huron.

When you arrive you are surrounded by complete privacy with no other cottages in sight with ample shade from Cedar and Balsam Fir trees. If peace and quiet is what you crave, then this is your place.

The cottage made us feel at home all too quickly. It was spotless and the the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed! The location's great, within minutes to the main town. Booking the place was so easy, the instructions were very detailed that there was no room for hiccups at all. Thank you for the wonderful cottage experience!

The cottage and property are beautiful; cozy, stylish and very clean. Very good flow; easy to live in. We never got in each others way. The cottage and in particular the kitchen is well equipped and worked very well for us. We were there for 7 nights and cooked in every night but 1. All of our meals were enjoyed on the beautiful balcony overlooking the water. The beds are comfortable. The water is crystal clear and beautiful. We've booked again for another week in September!
