Guestbook comments from the owner

Our entire family had such a great time! We did a lot of swimming and floating around in the lake. My husband fished right off the end of your dock and caught a lot of fish!!! The setting is so peaceful and tranquil. Your house is setup very nicely and was extremely clean! The bedding was comfortable and everyone said they slept really well. We enjoyed all of our 'outings', including doing a wine tour on the penninsula! What a great place. We will definitely be back next year! Thank you so much for making our family vacation so special.

Our family cannot say enough positive things about this house or its location. It was completely comfortable for the 10 of us. It is secluded yet close to everything. The kids loved swimming everyday. My 3 grandsons shared a bedroom that was perfect for them. The only thing I would have done differently is rent a boat for the week. The house was VERY clean and had more than enough linens. The living area was large enough to comfortably seat all of us. The kitchen is well stocked. There was plenty of parking for our 4 cars. The deck is large and looks out over Mickey Lake. There is a short trail across the road that leads to another small lake. It is a very quiet, peaceful area. The owner was very easy to work with and very excited to share information and make suggestions about things to do in the area. Our family made so many wonderful, long lasting memories at this house - we hope to rent it again next year.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Cannot say enough good things about this home. The house is so inviting and clean. All of the bedrooms are good size and the dormer was a great place for all of the cousins to sleep. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for a week up north. We enjoyed the fire pit every night and the view of the lake is stunning.

The fact that this house is located on Mickey Lake is fantastic. You can get to Long Lake if you want to do more boating or fishing, but the private, no wake lake in front of the house makes for great swimming and floating without having to fight boats or skiers. The lake is very clean and our kids enjoyed every minute. We caught tons of fish right off the dock.

We were able to take advantage of the location of the house to do lots of hiking and day trips to Lake Michigan. Just a great week up north and a great place to stay.

Family Vacay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week on Mickey Lake! We had 6 teenage girls and we moved right in! The family room accomodated us for games and relaxing in front of the TV! The kitchen accommodated our meal tool needs perfectly! Plenty of just-like-home finds there! The master was great! Upstairs dormer may get a bit warm but we all slept great and played great for a week! We brought our boat and used it out in Long Lake every day. We floated and swam every day too! Easy journey into town! We did have fires a few nights too! I think we used all the home had to offer! Really memorable family trip in a great home!

It was a great place for all 9 family members to stay. We loved the new deck, the AC and the wifi.

It was our 4th year coming there. So close to everything, but we didn't leave the place much. Loved the loons!

Great Vacation House!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week in this beautiful home on Mickey Lake! There was plenty of room for our whole family. So many great things in this home & the pictures are accurate. The beds were comfortable, the back deck that overlooked the lake was so nice & we enjoyed the fire pit every night. The house was clean & in great shape. The location of the home was perfect, very private but close enough to shopping & restaurants. The street is off a quiet road, which was nice for morning walks. David was so helpful in making sure our stay was perfect. We are already talking about returning next year. You will leave feeling refreshed & relaxed. Thank you for a great vacation!
