Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Great house, teens thoroughly enjoyed the wifi (cause you know). Very comfortable beds and living room.

Minor concern at check in was very promptly resolved by the owners!

We will definitely stay in this house again.

Snowmobile stay

  • 4 of 5

Nice house. We slept 9 and felt we had plenty of room. Large dineing table and nice size kitchen.The trail they say is 1-1/2 miles away is closed. Its actually 5-8 miles to the trail near Painesdale. The road and ditch had a lot of snow so it was easy to get to the trail.

Wonderfully equipped cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was our first HomeAway experience and it was a good one. The kitchen was very well equipped for us to prepare a pretty full Thanksgiving meal - and all of the little stuff we forgot, was there. Plenty of place settings and a nice big table to sit around. The cabin itself is beautiful, we loved the cozy gas log fireplace, and with the fan running it does a nice job of heating the place.

There were plenty of beds for all of us to sleep in, although my wife and I found the mattress in the master bedroom too soft for us (we prefer firmer mattresses than most) so we gave that room to our oldest daughter and we slept on full size bed on the loft. Younger kids slept in the room with two twin beds and were happy - and grandma got the other downstairs bedroom all to herself. Tons of pillows, blankets and towels.

There is a nice new (and BIG!) washing machine should you need it.

Note: I was with some family members who are particular (and sensitive) about their drinking water, and we ended up buying a few jugs of purified water to drink. There is a filtered water tap on the refrigerator - which was good enough for me - but just a heads-up. This is of no-fault to the property itself, just something others may want to plan ahead for.

We enjoyed watching an movie the old fashioned way (VHS Tape!) on the large TV in the master bedroom. There are quite a few VHS movies there in the closet next to the upstairs tv to choose from. There is a DVD player and a surround sound audio setup in the main living area as well.

The WiFi there is easy to connect to, and we had a lot of kids there with their faces stuffed in phones and tablets all weekend with zero complaints about the internet speed!

We arrived when it was dark and with all the fresh snow we drove by the property's driveway twice. It was right where it was supposed to be, but a few inches of snow - so just go slow as you approach. It's about 15? minutes into Houghton.

Bottom line - would we rent/stay there again? Absolutely.

A nice, cozy place to stay for seven of us. Would definitely stay again in the future.

  • 4 of 5

The pictures online are true to the property. The house was about a twelve minute drive to MTU. All the beds were comfortable. The only reason the review didn't receive five stars was because many of the dishes had a cloudy film on them. I am assuming because of the water. We felt we needed to wash the dishes before using them. Sandy was easy to work with and answered all my questions quickly. We would definitely stay here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear that. The dish washer just needed to have rinse agent added to it! Hope to see you again!
