Looking for the picture-perfect lakefront cottage that makes you feel like you’re getting away from it all, but still convenient to all Lake Superior’s South Shore has to offer? You’ll find this and more at Corny Cottage!

This two-bedroom, one-bath lakefront cottage perfectly combines modern style (and amenities!) with the cozy charm that makes this area so authentic.

The space
We’re not sure what is the best feature of Corny Cottage: it’s stunning lakefront setting (not to mention views!) or the incredible combination of indoor-outdoor living the cottage provides.

The cottage interior has an open-plan living/kitchen area that opens up to an amazing three-season porch, all with floor-to-ceiling views out to the lake.

The kitchen has been thoughtfully appointed with everything and anything you need, including a wide range of spices, coffee (we feature coffee beans fresh-roasted just a few miles away), key appliances, as well as cookware/bakeware galore! We especially love the kitchen’s island, which provides additional prep space as well as can serve as an informal dining area (with stools for four people).

The living area has a crazy-comfy sofa (that converts to a full-size bed), wide-screen tv, gas fireplace, and a leather recliner that you may never want to leave.

The living/dining area flows into the three-season porch via two glass French doors. Your group will likely want to spend nearly all their time out here! The porch has a sectional, two lovely wood rocker chairs, and a dining table that can seat six comfortably. The porch is enclosed on three sides with floor-to-ceiling windows. You can gaze out at the lake while relaxing or dining. And with not having to deal with pesky summer insects!

A deck connects directly to the porch, which houses another dining table (for four) and gas grill. You can head out to the large back yard from the deck, which has a fire pit, hammock, another dining table, and our favorite, a wood glider swing that’s perched at the edge of the property.

Certainly the most impressive feature of this property is the lake, in particular, the wonderful platform that sits just a few steps above the lakeshore (accessed via a set of stairs from the property’s edge). You can spend the whole day here lounging, reading, or just enjoying the view and the sound of the waves.

The cottage’s two bedrooms both have queen-size beds (both with brand-new plush mattresses), oh-so-cozy bedding, and windows with views into the woods around the cottage.

All of the furnishings, linens, and mattresses in Corny Cottage is new as of June 2021. The property’s owner took extraordinary care to preserve the rustic, lakefront charm of the cottage’s bones, but with updates to provide all the modern comforts one could desire.

Corny Cottage is the *real* South Shore experience: all the attention to detail you’d expect from a high-end Bayfield peninsula rental, but without the stuffiness or lack of character. We want you to kick your shoes off, put your feet up, relax and enjoy the company of friends, family, and your furry four-footed companions.

Where you’ll be

Cornucopia, Wisconsin, United States

The south shore is truly a place to get away from it all, but not so far from modern conveniences that getting food and gas feel like a chore. The guest book contains tips on all the incredible outdoor activities, local arts, and places to get groceries, dine out, grab a drink, etc. This is truly a year-round destination, whether you enjoy outdoor activities, local cuisine, art, or simply the company of friends & family in one of the most beautiful locations in the northern U.S.

The home is just a few minutes from the center of Cornucopia, which has a delightful general store/market, awesome coffee shop, bar/restaurant, farm store, and marina. Bayfield is about 25 minutes away, as is Washburn (where the largest grocery store is in the area).
