ReviewsWrite a review
I was really surprised at how quiet and relaxing it was at this lakefront cottage. The lake is beautiful; crystal clear and very little vegetation. The kids enjoyed seeing the wildlife in the area: turkeys, deer - we even stumbled upon a turtle! The clubhouse is awesome and convenient. My wife used the WiFi nearly everyday for work and the kids liked hanging out in the gym. We also enjoyed the relatively short drive into Alpena and up to Rogers City. Be sure to check out the Besser Museum's taxidermy-filled basement! And take the kids to Stoney Acres Winery for a tasting of all their different sodas (while you try the blackberry wine!).

My husband and I, along with our two boys, had a wonderful time. We were able to bring our dog, and he loved being outside there too. The cottage was cute and very clean. The lake was beautiful and very clear, and perfect for swimming. The beaches available for use on lake Huron offered more beautiful clear water and soft sandy beaches. We enjoyed the community of Presque Isle and even toured the lighthouses. The Portage restaurant had great food as well. Macinac Island is only 1 1/2 hours away, so we were able to make a trip up there too. We would definitely recommend this cottage to others and would love to make it back up there again :)
