Recent Upper Peninsula reviews

  • 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!"

  • Perfect Snowmobile Vacation

    "We booked a last minute snowmobile vacation in the UP with the lack of snow in SW MI. There were six of us and we chose the East Lake Retreat based on size, location and other reviews. I don't know how we could have made a better selection. The location is secluded and quiet, yet only 10 minutes into town. You could snowmobile right out of the driveway and be on the trails in minutes. There was a large driveway that could easily handle 2-3 snowmobile trailers. Plenty of great little restaurants to select from compared to the "chain" restaurants. The home is perfect just like all the other reviews stated. Everything is very organized and extremely "simple" which is just what most of us need on vacation. Barb was quick to respond and great to deal with. It was a terrific way to bring in the New Year! Thanks Barb for everything!"

  • So Much to Do in this beautiful part of the UP! Great Communication with Owner.

    "We stayed at this nice Cabin and found so much to do we ended up using it as a home base. We want to stay again sometime when we can just enjoy the private beach and other amenities that come with this Home away from Home. The Lake is peaceful & Sun Rises wonderful. Even though it was just my husband and myself this home could easily accommodate 3 couples each having their own area one downstairs, one on the main level and the other in the loft above or great place for an extended family i.e. grandchildren, teenagers and the like. We found Sandy beaches all over the area including the one right here at this cabin. Picked rock, hiked a number of trails to the most beautiful Waterfalls and saw some of the best Scenic Overlooks anywhere. We visited a number of Antique shops. There is shopping available for any taste. Our goal was to spend as much time hiking and with nature that we could and we did! I took over 1,000 pictures. We had some rain but mostly Sun and mid 70's and one day even 80 in Sept! It was one of our most awesome Vacations!! Thanks Ed for sharing this lovely home and piece of earth with us! Ed is wonderful to work with. We rent a number of VRBO's each summer and this rental was so easy to rent! Seamless really. The feel is inviting and the surroundings made it easy for us to make this our home for the week. Thanks Ed for being so great to work with and sharing your wonderful Lake Home.
