Hi Kristen

The little red cabin is sweet!
It is a cheery surprise inside, very light and happy. It has many classic latch and pull windows and white curtains.
It features Light Wood flooring everywhere, and blue and white decor, rugs throughout.
Seating are has loveseat, coffee table, wicker chair, rug.
White cabinetry in kitchen, Formica white counters, stainless double sink, white stove and refrigerator. It even has a small wall fireplace (electric) between the kitchen and living wall. Bright blue painted dining table and chairs.
It has cute, tiny bath with shower and corner sink. The bedroom has a comfy queen tempurpedic bed, closet and large dresser. We also have a twin bed for extra sleepers(like a studio area near the front living space) and a desk with directors chair too.
It sleeps two adults and two small children maximum.
No Tv in this space, lots of windows.
As a little cottage, it is cute and comfortable!

we recommend a day trip to Mackinac Island:6-8 hours....Mackinac Island is a one-of-a-kind community where motor vehicles are not allowed.

Climb the Nature Trail Climbing Wall. Soar like an eagle down the Eagle’s Flight Zip Line. Walk through the treetops on the Forest Canopy Bridge. Adventure to the top of the five-story Treetop Discovery Tower. The youngest adventurers can explore the Water Power Station & Forest Friends Children’s Play Area.(We suggest a visit time of two hours)

In the Upper Peninsula of Michigan: Tahquamenon Falls; the 2nd largest waterfall this side of the Mississippi River.

Whitefish Point Shipwreck Museum, Garlyn Zoo of Naubinway, Soo Locks located in Sault Ste Marie, MI and learn how the 1000 foot ocean freighters are lowered and raised in the locks to navigate between Lake Superior and Lake Huron.
