    "Great vacation. 3rd time at Lindsley Cove. Cabin is always very clean. The seclusion is wonderful. A very peaceful place. Fall foliage at peak was something to see. The area has great hiking, beautiful waterfalls, and of course, the lakes. The most relaxing vacation ever."

  • Private, beautiful, perfect!

    "We recently stayed at the cabin during the weekend of our wedding. It couldn't have been more special. The night before our wedding, we enjoyed a beautiful Northern Lights display that was the perfect kick-off to the weekend. The stars here are incredible! Best of all, it is less than 10 minutes to Calumet, so convenience and privacy blend just right. It is basically a studio, with the bedroom in the kitchen, so we would highly recommend for a couple. Any more than that and it would get tight. The owners provided a grill and all necessary amenities to make our stay perfect! I already miss waking up and seeing the lake early in the morning."

  • 2 Family UP vacation!

    "My family with our closest friends stayed here for a vacation this summer. Gladstone is a perfect town to make your base for exploring the UP. The pictures don't do the house justice! It was plenty large for both families. The bedrooms were large and the beds were very comfortable. The home was decorated well and was quite charming. The kitchen reminded me of my grandfather's. The hardwood floors throughout made the home easy to keep clean with all of us trekking through. Steve and Barb are great hosts, and a minor issue I encountered was immediately and thoroughly resolved. I would definitely stay here again! Make sure you visit Dobber's Pasties and The Buck Inn for food. We charter fished with Lucky Line Charters, Captain John was great with the boys, a real class act. We visited Quincy Mine in Hancock (need to visit Canyon Falls on the way back-beautiful!), explored Marquette/Ishpeming, toured Pictured Rocks by boat (recommend the sunset cruise), hiked Tehquamenon, visited Oswald's Bear Ranch (kids' favorite), Whitefish Point, Soo Locks, canoed the Marquette River through Seney Wildlife Refuge (recommend for experienced canoeists, not kids), played on the beaches in Gladstone and Escanaba. Overall one of the best vacations we've had in a while, thanks Steve and Barb!"

Mackinac Island Travel Tips

Enjoy the Horses by Reserving Mackinac Island Vacation Rentals

If you love horses, then Mackinac Island is the place for you. Mackinac Island's culture is centered on the breeding of horses and because of this, there are horse carriages available throughout the year so you can go for a ride and enjoy the amazing scenery at a slow pace. Horse-taxis are available to take you wherever you need to go just by going by the taxi office on Main Street and calling for one. What a quaint way to get around town—you'll feel like you've been transported to the 19th century!

Nature Abounds at Mackinac Island

To truly enjoy your vacation to Mackinac Island, lodging can be found in many places including hotels, but you won't really understand the beautiful nature of Mackinac Island by staying in a cold, cookie-cutter hotel room. Instead, look into renting out a Mackinac Island vacation home. These homes are wonderful because they are owned by real people who have added their personal touch to the décor and so they have that "lived-in" feel to them. They are also much roomier than a one-room hotel room, and include full kitchens, multiple bedrooms, and a large living area.

Amazing Area You Don't Want to Miss

Mackinac Island is truly a unique area. In addition to the horse-drawn taxis, you'll also find bicycle-drawn taxis to take you around town. A can't-miss is the Wings of Mackinac Butterfly Conservatory where you can see butterflies as they fly around lush plants. Butterflies are a rare sight in real life, but here, they are plentiful and are beautiful to see. Also found in the area are golfing, hiking, and the Stuart House Museum. And at the end of a wonderful, but exhausting, day, you can relax in one of the many Michigan Upper Peninsula lake houses that you have chosen to stay in.
