The owner was more than accommodating for our every wish. We have spent 15 years going up to Sakinaw Lake which is a beautiful peaceful lake but the home is even more beautiful. The check in with the concierge was welcoming and informative. The company they use to manage the rentals were excellent. Even the owner was reachable. Everyone loved it and its pet friendly!! I highly recommend this Lake front get away for any occasion. The cabin comes with kayaks, games, ping pong, sup boards, a boat house roof top and a floating island. Its the best of fun for all ages!! You will not regret a single moment of your stay there!

This immaculate home is large enough to comfortably accommodate three or four families, and your beloved pet! Both kitchens are amazingly well stocked, the beds are super comfortable, and there is an excellent supply of bath and swim towels. Game boards, ping pong table, kayaks, sup boards, a floating island, and a boat house roof top to jump off of in to the warm lake, will keep everyone entertained! Great hiking trails and dirt bike/mountain biking trails are just out the front door. We had a rental boat delivered to the dock to enjoy water-sports on the gorgeous pristine lake. Enjoy meals on the huge deck overlooking the lake or take a short drive in to town to great restaurants. The Property Manager, Shelley, was fabulous at helping plan our stay and the Owner, Sherry, greeted us upon check in and check out to ensure everything was to our understanding and satisfaction. It is a five star accommodation and summer holiday experience! The kids keep asking when we can go back! We will be sure to return next summer : )

There're was plenty of space for us all to come to together and places to get away for moments of quiet. The houses are both beautiful, kept immaculately clean, and the million dollar view was always great. The fireplaces were great to add atmosphere and to keep warm with. The kayaks, paddle boards, ping pong tables, games and hiking trails all make this a perfect place for anyone to visit. There is something for anyone no matter their interest. The kitchen was well stocked with all the basics that we would need. I would recommend this for anyone. So glad we found this treasure.
