Great Rental/Nice Local
Property is nicely located to several areas. It was clean and spacious for 6 of us that stayed. Extremely great it was pet friendly for our older dog. Owner/manager was friendly and easy to communicate with.
Great Property and Location
This location is perfect as a getaway. The property owner is prompt with answering questions, and keeps the property looking good. There is a really good local bar/restaurant across the street. The street is a main road that stays relatively plowed in the winter, with easy access to US2 and M28. Great location, great price, and great owner!
Very nice property in an excellent location for exploring the central and east UP. We will book this property again when we travel north.
Great cabin !
