"Opal's cottage was the perfect get-a-way. A lovely view from every room. We particularly enjoyed spending time in the screened-in porch and sitting out on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, and of course walking along the shore. On a couple evenings we talked about heading into town for dinner in drinks, but opted to dine in as the evening show was too good to pass up. The accommodations were comfortable and we had everything we needed. We brought bikes and had a nice ride into Manistee for lunch and a stroll through town. The Big M trail is less than 20 miles away and offers a nice set of trails for mountain biking, trail running and cross country skiing in the winter."

"The house was wonderful! Very spacious, clean and you can see the lake from the master bedroom, sun room, kitchen and living room. We enjoyed watching the sunset while relaxing in the hot tub. The weather was absolutely perfect for our stay. The stairs down to the beach may look a little intimating, but are really not a problem. We walked up and down the shoreline wading in the water even though it was a little cool. Manistee is a nice area and there is a new grocery store close to the house. It was nice to take a breath, relax and experience the simple beauty of Heaven."

"My wife and I recently stayed in the Hot Shot Lodge for a long weekend in the middle of September. The house was everything we could have asked for and more, and the hosts were unbelievable and left us everything we needed to help us focus on relaxing and enjoying the weekend. The property is a perfect location, with easy access and nice sturdy stairs down to the river overlook and river dock. We had a fire in the fire pit every night with more than enough firewood to sustain hundreds of fires. The house itself was as cozy as could be and we truly felt right at home as soon as we walked in.
Although it was just the two of us and our little Boston Terrier, this place would be also be perfect for a larger group of friends. There was a lot of space, a big back deck overlooking the river and even a screened in party porch with a TV that would be perfect in the middle of summer to play games or cards on buggy nights. I know we are definitely looking to get a group of close friends and come back soon.
This place will not disappoint!!"

"My family and I just returned from our 4-night stay and it was perfect! We were there supporting my brother who was running the 50 mile North Country Race in Wellston. The cabin was only 15 minutes from the start of the race and it was so nice to come home to this comfortable, private cabin in the woods. We brought our dogs and they LOVED the hiking trails on the property. The beds are super comfortable and the kitchen is stocked for whatever you need. Cabin was plenty big enough for 6 adults. Thanks, Karen for making it easy for us!"
