Francoy's Resort opens April 30, and closes October 3.
Our five cottages are on 562 feet of Big Fish Lake frontage interspersed with 3 Park Model RV'S.
Big Fish Lake has a sandy shoreline, is over 400 acres, connects to other lakes and offers great
Each 2 bedroom cottage is remodeled, has a row boat out front, a picnic table, a park-style
charcoal grill, gas range, refrigerator and microwave. Two cottages (Sunrise and Sunset) are air
conditioned (seldom needed). Four (excluding Flanders Inn) have fireplaces and quaint knotty pine
interiors. Each cottage sits on our sunny bluff about 15 steps up from the Lake. All the cottages
are very clean. All cottage bathrooms include showers. The cottages are backed up by a large
stand-by generator for Seasonal power outages. We are at the South end of (private) Fish Lake
Drive (blacktop) on the East side of the Lake and 19 miles South of Paw Paw and 1-94. Every
cottage has an area near the Lake for a Campfire. You can swim at your own risk but there is no
Lifeguard. You must watch your children.
The Cottages rent for $875 a week Saturday noon to Friday at 3 p.m. You reserve your cottage
week by first calling or e-mailing for dates available and then sending $875 to reserve your week.
Bring what you need, your life preservers/cushions (or borrow ours) your towels, pillows, sheets,
blankets, food plus fishing tackle. Check for special Fall rates after Labor Day and enjoy great
Autumn Fishing.
