  • Perfect secluded getaway

    "Me and my family (my parents plus 3 younger siblings) all greatly enjoyed this cabin. We came up to the UP for a long weekend and things could not have gone better. It was easy to communicate with the owners, easy to pay for it, and easy to access once we arrived. The owners were gracious enough to allow us to bring our two dogs (a lab and a German Shepherd) which was a huge bonus for us. We loved being so close to the river and hiking trails. The view of Lake Superior is just breathtaking. The kitchen had everything we needed to do everything from grilling out one night to making chili the next. The lawn was the perfect size to play lawn games (ladder ball, catch, etc.) and the kids loved the big rocks to climb on. The bathrooms worked out perfect with one being downstairs so we could undress, warm up, and get clean all without tracking dirt into the house. We were even able to do a load of laundry when we got a little too wet during an ill advised kayaking expedition into Superior! During rainy times there were plenty of books for all ages and board games. One night we watched a movie too. I would highly recommend this cottage for anyone looking to escape the grind of daily life. It met every need we had and the set up could not have been more perfect. Thank you for sharing this amazing property with us!!"

    "My new husband and I had a wonderful time here. It was peaceful, private and relaxing. Just what we were looking for after the hustle and bustle of wedding planning. Everything we needed was included. Steve and Sue were great hosts and very helpful. The cabin was very clean and well kept. Thank you so much!"

    "This was a great place to relax at the beach. The beach is a short walk over a dune to a lovely beach with plenty of elbow room. Even when the weather turned a bit cool and windy we were able to sit outside with the protection from the dune. The music festival was going on the first weekend we were there, lots of fun with lots of friendly people. We visited Crisp Point lighthouse and Au Sable lighthouse, Tahquamenon Falls and took a sunset cruise to Pictured Rocks. We also looked for agates on the beach but I don't think we found any. I could have stayed another week."

  • 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."
