"Our family of 4 adults and 1 11yr. old girl had a wonderful visit at the Lily Pad. The cottage itself is a lovely and well kept home with all the amenities including plenty of storage space which is unusual in most cottages. We lucked out with a beautiful weather week in the mid to high 70's and blue skies. We enjoyed kayaking and our attempts at fishing (we'll get them next time!). We visited Petoskey, Mackinaw City, Mackinaw Island, and Cheboygan where we ate at a delicious restaurant, Pier 33 on the river. The meal at Legs Inn in Cross Village was great as well. The cottage location is so close to so many places and activities that I still have a list of things we did not have time to do or visit. Now, if we could just get rid of those pesky mosquitoes after sunset, we would know we were close to heaven."

"I chose this cottage for a quiet weekend away. This place fit the bill! Very quiet easy to get to and from and not far from anything. Everything is provideo and there is a grocery store near bar for anything you may have forgotten."

"We stayed here for a week with another family and our babies. We had a wonderful time exploring the raspberry-lined path to the river, going for walks on the trail nearby, and making use of the many places inside the cottage and on the large deck to eat and relax. We really enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen to make meals together. Sandie and Bill were wonderful hosts and brought us arugula and kale from their garden. Their cottage was beautiful inside- one of a kind with creative decor. We appreciated the privacy from the surrounding area. We enjoyed going for day trips to Harbour Springs and Petosky.
Overall, we had a wonderful time in the comfortable and well-stocked cottage and hope to return to the area soon for another relaxing vacation."

"Just got back from a week at the Carriage House and miss it already!! What a little piece of Paradise!! Needed a relaxing vacation and this rental had everything we needed. Wildlife galore which included seeing brown cranes every morning, hearing the beautiful, haunting call of the Loons daily, Swans, Eagles diving for fish while we enjoyed the "Tiki Bar", Snapping Turtles coming on land to lay their eggs, Canadian Geese, and Ducks galore, and deer visiting every morning. Pat and Marcia are two of the greatest people we have had the pleasure of meeting; forming a bond with them immediately. We enjoyed their hospitality immensely. Looking forward to visiting again in the future. Thank you both for making our vacation a memorable one."
