Why Dave and Tami Hall chose Indian River
This cottage is centrally located to all of the beautiful rivers, lakes, beaches, shopping, sunsets, historical sites and trail systems. It is easy to find, is on a nicely treed lot with privacy that is hard to find when you're on the water. We have direct access to state land through the back of our lot and well marked trails. This is especially nice for walking the dog, exploring nature and enjoying winter soft sports. We are very close to the "put in" at White Road to ride the Sturgeon. We are equally close to the trail head for groomed snowmobile trails. The North Central Trail runs next to the Sturgeon across the street from our home. The backyard has a generous fenced area with a fire pit behind the fenced area. There is plenty of parking for multiple vehicles / trailers.
What makes this House unique
Views of the woods and wildlife from the back of the house will have you watching for the deer. The home is sunny and warm even though it's nestled amidst the tress of of a wooded lot. You can really relax here inside and out. Special traits include full laundry, fenced yard, private lot, easy access and centrally located to Petosky, Cheboygan and Mackinaw City, close to Burt Lake State Park, and the Surgeon River as well as the North Central Trail.

Wonderfully cozy house
Great location and a cozy little house with all of the amenities you could need. Fenced in yard was great for the dog. Super clean. We spent most days in the woods, shopped at Ken’s for groceries and cooked meals at home. Perfect fall hunting getaway. We’ll definitely be back!
Kirsten- We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to have your pup enjoy the woods and yard. Thank you for renting from us and taking good care of the house.
We look forward to your being able come again.

A+ Property Owner
This property was very clean, comfy and perfect for my family of 4. But above all the property owner was AMAZING!!! We were in town for a soccer tournament and our Sunday schedule was crazy. We had to be up and out of the house and on the fields SO early and then we did not know if we’d have to stick around for the championship games later in the day. I had texted the owner the night before asking for a later check out so we did not have to pack up and clean up at 5 am. We could come back in the afternoon before the championship rounds, but the owner text back saying no one was checking in that day and she would reach out to her property manager and check to see if there cleaning could be scheduled for that evening. She then text me again and said, we were all set and we were welcome to check out after the championship rounds if need be. Who does that??? Amazing!!! No questions asked, no additional fees. She saw that we were in a scheduling dilemma and she put our minds to ease quickly. We did not end up being in the championship round afterall. We brought lunch back after the last game, ate fast, packed and cleaned the cottage. I think I texted her 12-1:00 in the afternoon, letting her know that we were leaving. We did not get much time at the cottage because we were at the soccer fields all weekend, but my husband and I definitely plan to come back and check the area out when we have time to explore. We did enjoy a couple long walks in the woods behind the property in the evenings. 👍�🏻� Can’t wait to go again.
Thanks so much for renting our cottage and we were glad to be able to accommodate the extra time needed to round out your plans. I'm sure it would be more fun to have a trophy to take home, but we also know that family support is the best way to celebrate getting to that level of competition. We are excited that you're planning to return for some time to enjoy our beautiful area. Thanks again for being such wonderful guests and for the kind words.
Wonderful for our family trip
This property was perfect for our family get away! The space was clean and exactly as described. We enjoyed the inside space as well as the outside space. There is a grocery store close by so we were able to cook out while enjoying the fire pit. There are some nice local restaurants in the area as well. Our kids are college age. We enjoyed our family time and liked the amount of space we had to spread out a bit. The location was ideal for us. We were just a half hour from Mackinac city and Petkusky. The owners left us a huge binder of area attractions as well. We hope to return in the near future !
It was an absolute pleasure hosting your family. We appreciate your communicating with us about the questions you had and being able to encourage your exploration of the area. We love to see others enjoy the place like we do! Come back soon!
Great Vacation Spot!
Very Comfortable and Clean, with many amenities! Close to Indian River with Ken's market but still country. The cottage was close to many lakes. Very conveniently located to many popular locations. Mackinac, the UP, Petoskey , Harbor Spring and Gaylord. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Thanks for staying with us. We appreciate your comments and you were wonderful guests. We hope you can return again soon!
Nice property. Good location for day trip to attractions. Poor experience in dealing with the owners. Learned a lesson to always photograph everything as I left it. Good price, but when renting should expect to have additional charges made to the security deposit. Even found a wedding band lost by previous renters and left it with the owners. . . Just hope the previous renters got it back
Disappointing is a mild term for this rating and commentary. The broken lamp in the bunk room where your 4 children undoubtedly slept was pictured within 1 hour of your departure by our property manager who checks out the cottage and is a trusted employee. We sent you a that picture as well as link to the replacement with the cost listed to be sure you understood why we were charging back for the damage - a fair amount for a bedroom lamp. I'm sorry you didn't see it before you left. It was very clearly damaged beyond use.
We checked your claim that the outlet didn't work and there is no problem with the outlet. It seems that there is a grudge being handled here with intent to damage our reputation as hosts and to question our integrity. Finding the ring was indeed a blessing to the man who lost it. If you'd like, I can have him contact you to assure you that he received it. Questioning that we even returned it is completely unreasonable. Our property manager sent it via registered and insured mail that same day you left. He was very grateful for receiving it.
The two issues aren't related although I'm sure you feel entitled to having the damage forgiven due to having notified us of the ring being discovered.
We have had MANY wonderful guests who have given us very positive reviews. We are relatively new hosts and this was the first time we had any damage to anything at the cottage. We want to keep things nice for all renters and so a damage deposit helps us to assure a nice property for all who stay there.
It's easy to buy a new lamp, but it will take a long time to undo this unfair rating and review.
