"We will keep coming back!
After spending weeks looking for the perfect spot to stay "Up North" we found this property. The house and cabins were clean, well-maintained and ideal for our needs. The rooms were spacious and the linens were spotless. The kitchen had everything we needed...it was almost like being at home, but much better because we weren't at home!
Did I mention that we were only a short distance from the backdoor to the lake? And what a lake it is! The dock allowed us to secure our boat and made for a quick get-away when the kids were ready to ski.
If you ever want a place to watch a summer sunset...just right outside your back door and just feet from the lake...this is your place.
Thank you to the landlord for making this a perfect vacation for our families and once for our entire staff!"

"We have rented Tattrie's cottage a number of times over the years. We have never had anything close to a bad experience on any of our vacations. I think this was our 4th time renting and we plan to return every year. Opal lake is northern Michigan's best kept secret and Tattries cottage is the perfect place to enjoy the area. The cottage is always clean, sleeps plenty and has everything you could want. Some people enjoy the out of state escape vacation. I personally love driving a couple hours and having my vacation start when I walk in the door. If you are expecting a 5 star resort with pool attendants and maids, room service etc, this is not the place for you. It is a cottage, a cute perfect cottage in an great location. I have been coming to Opal lake since I was a child, I dreamed of retiring or living on this lake when I grew up. Tattries gives me the opportunity to live that dream every year I visit. My wife and kids have fallen in love as I did. See you next year."

"I stayed at this property for a long weekend in August. The cabin is awesome! It's more updated looking than the pictures make it seem, it's very clean, and more roomy than I expected. There is a flat screen tv now instead of the older one in the pictures, however there is no cable or internet so be aware of that. I have Verizon and my service was terrible until I got into town. There is also no air conditioning, which to my surprise the cabin stayed pretty cool and comfortable, except for the bedroom at night. Even with the ceiling fan going and the fan I brought, it was still very hot. The property is beautiful and there's an amazing pond loaded with a variety of fish and turtles! I fed them....a lot :) The only issue I had was that the trail leading down to the river is very narrow and overgrown with tons of flowers and plants, so as your trying to swat the bugs away (yes, they were horrible) and carry your things down to the river, it can be a little challenging. I was also under the impression that your right on the river, as in being able to just walk right in with easy access, but it's not. There's a small, mowed out strip and the fire pit, but you're on like a hillside so it's a good 20 feet or so drop off down to the river and it didn't seem doable to climb down the side to get down to the water. I'm not a professional fisher, I just do it for fun, however I couldn't quite figure out how to try fishing that high up and with all the tall grass and branches coming off the slope so I didn't do any fishing from the property. All in all it's a great cabin and the land is beautiful, I'd definitely recommend. Last thing, the driveway is a shared driveway with a few other homes and it's narrow, so go slow around corners!"

"My fiance and I stayed at the cottage during mid-August. I was so grateful to have found a lakefront location that would accommodate a weekday to weekday stay rather than a Saturday to Saturday, and that would allow us to bring our dog. It was easy to find off 23. The home was very clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. The property was beautiful and private with its tall birch trees and long staircase to the beach, allowing us to let our dog off-leash to roam around. The lakefront here is beautiful--clear water and a major view of the lake. We made ample use of the kitchen to cook most of the meals we had during our stay, the innertubes in the garage, the fire pit, and the beautiful bike path nearby. I would happily stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others! Chris was always fast to respond and very thorough with all of my questions, which was also sincerely appreciated.
Some of our favorite spots during this stay that we would recommend: The Chicory Cafe, The Painted Lady Cafe, Rosa's Squeeze Inn, Karsten's Restaurant, and the Domaci Gallery."
