Our stay at Huron Horizons was amazing! The home was better than we expected. It was super clean, had all the amenities that were listed and then some, the views from all the windows were spectacular, and it just felt so comfortable to stay there. We can not say enough good things about it and we can't wait to plan out next trip!
Great views, comfortable, but.....
Beautiful views, great to listen to the waves from the lake. Location somewhat more remote than we imagined, while Big Bay is nice, very limited. House design has a lot of wasted space so 1200 ft listed is a bit misleading, parts of master area is small with a very low ceiling. No storage, you will live out of your suitcase the entire time, bathroom has no counter space at all, very small shower. Downstairs bath is great. Marquette is special, a great town with lots to do, good restaurants, extremely friendly and wonderful people. We had issues, initial impression, other than the spectacular view, was cleanliness. Sand on the floor, cob webs, sand in the dryer . Metal roof had to be repaired. We had to unplug the dishwasher to get it to work more than once. Master bath sink had drainage issues. Smoke alarm went off at 1:00 AM due to a battery going out, we think that was the problem. Thankful for the response on the smoke alarm, other issues unfortunately defensive or no response. Please check the downstairs bedroom window locks, appeared they did not work, maybe were broken? Did not notice until checking things at departure.
In response to your review we understand that when issues happen while on vacation it can put a damper on your experience. We appreciate your feedback and with a few of the issues you described we’ll work to resolve them, so they don’t create issues for our future guests. Specifically, there was a guest earlier this year who had trouble starting the dishwasher. If we can’t figure out how to make that easier it will be replaced with a different model. To increase storage in the master bedroom we plan to add some closet shelves and a dresser in the near future. We’re still relatively new to the rental world but that’s something we’ve been contemplating. We’ll also work to resolve the drain issue in the Master Bath. That’s new information.
Regarding the size of the cabin our hope is that our Vrbo photos give an accurate feel for the size of the space and rooms. We’ve received a good amount of written feedback that the cabin is well suited for two to six.
And lastly, you mentioned the responsiveness of our property manager. While this is only our second year of renting out our cabin, we’ve had over thirty bookings. In several of the reviews below, and in even more entries in our guest book, there have been nothing but positive comments about the cleanliness of the cabin, and about Kristin. Comments consistently describe her as professional, prompt, courteous and helpful, and that’s been our experience as well. When the inevitable issues do come up, both Kristin’s and our goal is to resolve them as soon as possible so our guests can get the most from their stay. Again we appreciate you sharing your feedback.
Owner of Huron Horizons
We had such a good time at this house! Very clean, perfect location with beautiful sunsets, very close to beaches, and close to town. We would absolutey stay here again.
Hooray for Big Bay
Our stay at Huron Horizons couldn't have been much better. The house was perfect for our needs and gave us the peaceful, comfortable retreat we were looking for. We took advantage of a week's worth of perfect weather to enjoy a lot of time outside, from walking on the beach, to taking in stunning sunsets by the fire pit, to spending hours watching the Perseid meteor shower on the top deck once the sun actually went down. We grabbed a couple of beers at the Lumberjack Tavern, as should be required when one stays in Big Bay/Powell. We loved the remote feeling of
Great house, great town, great people on a Great Lake
We loved the house . Beds are soft and comfy, but the view is the best . We just sit at the big windows and watch the sunrise and set . The people are so friendly in town.
The house was amazing. My husband and I stayed here along with our two kids ages 7 and 11. The house was clean and in a perfect location! We all felt safe and enjoyed everything the house has to offer. The water was right outside the door which we found to be very peaceful. We did contact the property manager once (not with any issues of the house) and she got back to us right away. Would def stay here again!
