  • Excellent Home Away from Home

    "There isn't much to add that hasn't been said. Fabulous home -- like being at home as far as the comfort goes -- great beds. The kitchen was wonderful to prepare some of our meals and we enjoyed the outdoor space. Perfect place to take in some serious golf. Jim and Carol have a jewel of a home here and we are fortunate to have them share it with us. Jim was great to work with and offered recommendations, all good. We're already talking about our return!"

  • A Great Stay @ Bell Bay!!!

    "Another awesome vacation at Bell Bay!!! We enjoyed exploring the area and checking out several of the local attractions. The lighthouses on Presque Isle are beautiful and have an interesting history. In town, we loved the community feel while visiting the farmers market and several of independent shops. Our family had a blast renting bikes from Performance Locker and riding around the downtown district. We also loved hanging out at the cottage, soaking up the sun at the beach, and enjoying the view of the bay. Overall, it was another great stay at Bell Bay. This was our families third year there and we are already looking forward to next summer!"

  • Relaxation at it's best

    "What a great get-away. Very clean and well stocked. There wasn't anything that we needed or wanted. Mac was very helpful with suggestions for dining and places to visit. Can't wait to see the cabin in the winter. Thanks Mac!"

  • 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."
