This little newly remodeled gem is small but mighty. If you have ever been curious about tiny homes, this is a must! You have but a small walk across a parking lot and down the beach stairs to a big private sandy beach. Need more space? Check out the other cottages under my profile.

The space
This cottage was originally built in the early 1950's and was mysteriously cut in half to accommodate a lot line. I find the wonky floors, creaky doors & strange layouts charming, I hope you do too. Cypress Resort & Marine has a total of 10 cottages, boat slips, launch and an event hall for private parties. Please, NO PETS!

Guest access
The property has 480ft of sandy beach, picnic tables, floating piers, boat launch, men's & women's bathrooms with showers. Kayaks, paddle boards, canoes, life jackets, floaties and sand toys are provided at no extra cost. The Boat House is available to rent for private parties.

I have personally renovated my childhood home/resort so that guests can enjoy making the memories I did as a kid. We have 6 cottages, a beach, event hall for rent, docks, boat launch and now chickens! Since 2012, it has been the greatest labor of love. Cypress Resort & Marine is now a favorite among many to experience the Chain O'Lakes. Book your stay and be a part of our memories!
