Recent Upper Peninsula reviews

  • Phenomenal Location and Fantastic Home

    "My husband, brother-in-law and sister-in-law stayed in this home for a week and never wanted to leave. The view of Lake Huron and the Mackinaw Bridge are phenomenal...you can even see the cottage as you are coming over the bridge from Mackinaw City. The home is fantastically equipped and furnished first class right down to the heated toilet seats with LED night lights and the lighted cupola on the roof of the house. Our temps were in the high 50's at night to high 70's during the day and the house is so well insulated we never had to turn on the heat or the AC. This home is so welcoming and inviting that we never wanted to leave. My husband and I have rented multiple properties in the Caribbean, Florida and Arizona and this was by far the overall best property we have ever stayed in. If we get the chance to return to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan we will definitely try to rent the "Cottage On the Straits" again. I would give this property and the Owner 10 stars if I could."

  • Family Reunion

    "Spent a wonderful week in this house. Very close to the water with a nice patio deck and dock. Grandkids, ages 4-13, enjoyed it the most. The lake is so clear and beautiful, the view awesome. It's also close to the county park which has playgrounds, picnic tables, and the Indian Burial Mounds. The owners were very helpful."

  • Comfortable Family Home

    "My husband and four adult children/spouses spent a relaxing week in this beautifully decorated family home on a large lake. There is a dock and a small bit of beach that are perfect for enjoying the water on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Within an hour's drive of Pictured Rocks, Mackinac Island, Taquhemmonen (sp) Falls...it is a great base to explore the area. We rented a pontoon boat for a couple of days and enjoyed hours on the lake. The home is clean and comfortable - not fancy or stuffy. There was no air conditioning which wasn't a problem during our stay - and likely isn't often on the UP - but plan accordingly. The owner was very helpful with great driving directions (it is off the beaten path - a plus!) and a notebook with lots of information on the area. A great value - we would definitely return!"

  • Great peaceful cabin!

    "We wanted a place where we could relax and just forget about all our worries and this was definitely the place to be! The river and cabin were beautiful! We used this as our base and went on many adventures but it was always great coming back at the end of the day and sitting on the patio. The cabin was very well built and gave us some ideas for when we build. It was rustic but with the accommodations that are nice to have (running water, lights, and a stove). What a perfect vacation we had! Thanks again!"
