"We were there from 6/30/2015 - 7/5/2015 and had a great time.I do have some feedback however:
My original plan was to use the canal to dock a couple jetski's and cruise Otsego lake. When I got there I realized there were huge bolts sticking out of the seawall every 7 feet, no cleats to tie anything up to, and no ladder to climb up from. Also the water depth was around 1ft near the seawall.
The terms and conditions tell you that using the canal is at your own risk... but lets just put it bluntly, its unusable. Your renting property on the water, but its only for the view, not for use.
I ended up going to Houghton Lake twice (45 minute drive), and Torch Lake (50 minute drive) for July4th, and I had a blast.
Kitchen was well stock with everything I needed to make great meals.
I got my security deposit back promptly
Owner let me extend my stay with ease
Grill was dirty, and empty. The cover is ripped, and the tree drops all kinds of stuff on it. (I had my own grill so I used that, or I would have been more unhappy)
Can-Opener is still broke (Originally submitted in feedback a long time ago)
No dishwasher soap
Cant use canal"

"My husband and I really liked this cabin and the property involved. The beach was great, fires every night. The weather was great when we were there. Only one problem we had was the bed wasn't long enough for my very tall husband and not comfortable enough for myself. I'm pretty fussy when it comes to beds. I'm like the princess and the pea, I feel every lump and bump. Double beds are not good for tall people. It's close to great restaurants, lots of relaxing to do, very quiet and serene. The owners were very nice too"

"We stayed at the cottage for a week and Loved it. Used the Lake everyday,and caught enough fish to have a family fish fry.The No Wake hours were great for fishing and just relaxing at the beach. We would recommend this
cottage to family and friends. We would definitely rent it again.Cindy"
