"We rented the cabin for a week in August for a family vacation / college reunion. The first part of the week we had three couples and several young kids. The second part of the week, we had 8 guys get together for an annual reunion. The place was perfect for both groups.
Everyone had a blast, there was so much to do! Fishing, hot tub, swimming, boating, roasting marshmallows, kayaking and horseshoes. There are several golf courses nearby, a zipline course, and plenty of other activities in Gladwin or West Branch. Two Scoops Ice Cream and The Camp are right up the road and offer some great, nearby food options.
The inclusion of the pontoon with the rental was a great bonus, and really made the week a lot more fun. The lake is small and murky, there is no beach or swimming off the dock, but if you take the boat out to the middle its deep enough for swimming. We did quite a bit of fishing, catching mostly small stuff, but it was still a good time.
The cabin itself is really the highlight. Its beautifully maintained, with plenty of room. Our group of 8 adult men were very comfortable and never felt crowded. Three bathrooms was definitely a plus! Beautiful views of the lake, a nice deck and firepit were great too. WiFi would be nice, but most of us had decent cell service so it really wasn't that big of a deal.
The owners are also very responsive. When we arrived, we noticed that the firewood was almost completely gone, and that the burners in the grill had rusted through. I sent a note to the owners just to let them know, and the next day a truckload of Firewood arrived and the owner showed up with a brand new grill. Amazing service! Thanks again for a fantastic week!"
