  • The Perfect Place

    "We have been renting summer cottages for over 17 years and have now found the "perfect place." This large family-friendly lake home has everything--Lake Huron with a sandy bottom (no rocks or weeds), a large sandy beach, a kitchen with a lakeview where cooking is a pleasure, a big open dining room, and two family areas with large window walls catching the lake breezes. Plenty of space for a family of 12 (Grandmother, parents, teenagers, and 20+) to enjoy swimming, sunbathing, volleyball, quiet reading areas, singing around the campfire, games, fishing on Lake Huron and the many small lakes nearby, shopping, kayaking, biking, trails nearby for four-wheeling, and watching spectacular sunrises. We are hoping to return next year."

  • Cute place

    "We rented the cottage for two nights because we went to Gaylord to go snowmobiling. The cottage does have everything you need including pans, dishes, and paper supplies. I must say the cottage is well appointed. Everything is new and looks nice. The bathroom is spa-like. The room with the bunk beds is very small and hard to move around for an adult. My kids didn't end up sleeping in there because the heater was right by this room and it was loud. So this wouldn't be a problem in the summer time. I know that I knew up front but I didn't like having to clean up the place including washing the sheets and towels, cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming, etc. It is a lot to get done before you check out at 11:00. I would not have had enough time if I would have had to wash the bunk bed sheets too and if I didn't wash the towels the night before. The owner was fair and easy to work with."

  • spacious and beautiful lodge for a large group

    "This place is so spacious and comfortable, I didn't want to leave. We had a group of 15 and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchens were well equipped and it was easy to cook a nice meal for a large crowd with two of everything. It was nice having the washer and dryer, especially with kids. We loved the huge covered deck with ceiling fans and large tables and chairs. The view was amazing and we even saw an eagle as we sipped our coffee on the deck one morning. The lodge is clean and beautifully decorated. I liked that one side of the lodge was nautical themed and the other side was woodsy themed. Everything was perfect. The beds were comfortable and there was a nice breeze provided by the large window in each bedroom. I loved the ceiling fans in every bed room too. We all took showers and didn't run out of hot water. The lodge was certainly built with comfort, convenience and character in mind. Long Lake is clean and clear with lots of fish. The best ones we caught were right off our own dock. We swam and thoroughly enjoyed being on the lake 24/7. The back yard is spacious and we set up a volley ball net. We also enjoyed the ping pong table in the basement. It was nice being able to spread out, if some wanted to play a board game and others wanted to watch a movie. I liked that two of the bedrooms and bathrooms were on the main floor for my elderly parents that can't maneuver stairs. We would love to make the long lake lookout lodge an annual place to gather every year. It certainly is a home away from home in every aspect. Can't wait to go again!"

  • Absolutely amazing weekend in a beautiful place

    "We shared a wonderful weekend with my parents at Uncle Frank's cottage. Our three kids, the two of us, and my parents were all very comfortable in the cabin. It has been furnished with everything you need for a relaxing and fun getaway. It's obvious the owners have put a lot of personal interest into the cabin- it's full of homey touches and fun fish-themed decor. The beds were comfortable and we had all we needed to cook in the kitchen. Outside, you couldn't ask for a more beautiful, secluded place to kick back. It was great that we were able to use the pontoon boat- my husband especially loved trying to tempt the fish while we were there. The roads around the house are not very busy and we enjoyed jogging in the mornings around the lake area and seeing the fall foliage. The fire pit was excellent and the wood provided worked great for building a nice fire for s'mores and stargazing. Really, it was a fabulous location and the owners were great to work with. We would gladly travel here again and recommend it to any friends who are thinking of traveling to the area."
