Wynken, Blynken and Nod, named for a children’s poem by Eugene Fields, are nestled on a peninsula between Portage Lake and Lake Michigan, these three family owned cottages are ideally located for virtually any summer activity. They are just outside the quaint village of Onekama, 15 minutes north of historic Manistee and less than an hour south of Traverse City. The cottages have a private beach with a dock and are only a 10 minute walk to the public access beach on refreshing Lake Michigan. Portage Lake is also connected by channel to Lake Michigan, a real convenience for fishermen who want to go out in the big lake after "the big one."
