"The family, including our dog Oreo, loved this cottage! We will be back. The house was clean & perfect size for a family of 5 and the private sandy walk into the lake was the absolute best!! The grounds had a great mix of trees and grassy areas to play soccer and football. The sandy bottom & shallow water for what seemed like 100 yards was perfect for the children to play, swim and fish along the deeper ledge in the row boat provided by the owners. We did bring our bikes and the neighborhood was perfect for the young children to ride in, but next year we will for sure do the local bike path to Mackinaw. The only wish we would have is that the cot that was offered for an additional person be replaced & the living room futon a smidge larger, definitely not a show stopper to come back :-) Thank you Sandy & Michael for sharing your "Grandma's Cottage", it was fantastic. This has already be recommended to other extended family members as well as close friends that are totally interested."

"This vacation rental was perfect for our 3 generation family. We had no problem finding the rental, and we were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations even though the listing description and photos accurately reflected the appearance of the property. The layout of the house fit our needs perfectly and worked well for us regardless of the weather. The property was very clean, well maintained, and stocked with everything we needed and more. The location is great for forays to Mackinac Island, Mackinaw City, and even Petoskey. There are some outstanding golf courses and restaurants around, and we even rented a pontoon boat at a Mullett Lake marina for a cruise around the lake one day. The shore at the rental is a bit rocky, but if you swim off the end of the dock, there is no problem. Water shoes can make it even better. We would definitely recommend this rental for anyone wanting to enjoy some pure "Up North" Michigan."

"We had the best time while staying in this home right on the water! There were multiple families with us, of all ages, and everyone had plenty of space. Great layout for having lots of guests. Very comfortable and clean... not to mention the gorgeous views of sunsets on the lake! Such a pretty setting with the decks overlooking the water. I wish I could add photos because we took some great ones during our stay. Going out on the boat was a blast, very glad we opted to add this to our trip. Would definitely stay here again in the future."

"We (8 of us) had a great time at John and Marsha's property. The house was exactly as advertised on the site. Our girls had a great time playing in the creek that runs next to the house. We grilled on one of the two outdoor grills nightly, and even got to pick some fresh herbs from Marsha's garden for a couple of meals. The sunsets are amazing to see from the beach. We brought our boat and enjoyed it everyday. The water is crystal clear with a nice sandy bottom that adds to the fun. We did enjoy the new fire pit that John had recently installed on a couple of occasions. I would have no reservations about recommending this property to any family or friends as I am sure they would enjoy it as much as we did."
