Truly a place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

Gordy's Glory was perfect for us! It was clean, very well-outfitted, and just the right size for our family of four. We were able to take several day trips to Pictured Lakes (~1.5 hours), Iron Mountain (~1 hour), and even Mackinac Island (~2.5 hours plus ferry time). We always looked forward to our evenings back at the cottage. There were Sandhill Cranes in the yard daily, as well as geese, blue jays, and humming birds. The sound of the water from the bay was pure relaxation.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the cottage on Little Bay De Noc. It is a very comfortable cottage with everything that one would want (except for food and drink). We had cranes and geese in the front yard every day and each night as the sun was setting the chorus of frogs and night birds would start up. We did a few day trips and other times just walked down the road. Joanne was very easy to work with and we hope to return in the near future.

Everything Was Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I arrived a little later than anticipated due to some heavy rain. Everything was just as our host said it would be. The cabin is comfortable and felt like a home away from home. Had a great time to relax and enjoy. There were points of interest close enough for short day trips. Grilled out a couple nights, everything was in the cabin that was needed. Would I recommend this rental? You betcha Everything was perfect. Only concern, the address could be a little more visible from the road. Thanks for allowing this great opportunity.

Nice place - quiet and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Stayed with a couple of old college buddies, quiet, peaceful, well-equipped. Owner represents place honestly. Enjoyed the grill and the fire ring in the evenings. A little close to neighbors for me, but they were nice and/or quiet.

Indeed a peaceful place on Little Bay De Noc.

  • 5 of 5

Great spot to relax or a place to stay while fishing the bays. Great wildlife to watch as the cranes, humming birds and deer frequent the back yard. Has all the things you need to have an enjoyable time there and cook your own food. The grill works really well too. Fire ring is a great time in the back yard in the evenings.

Cottage Nice - Water Issues

  • 3 of 5

This is a nice cottage with a nice view of Escanaba across the bay. It is clean and neat and well cared for. There is some issue with the water, however, with an odd smell. The owner provides bottled water, but it seems this should be disclosed prior to renting. There was also an issue with a lot of gnats in the house, particularly in the loft.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dean for choosing my cottage as your get away. I take your comments very seriously. The gnats, as well as mosquitos have been a problem this year because of the standing water in the bay. Unfortunately, the gnats get in through the screens and are pesty. I am happy to say, they are gone now. As for the water, I am having my sand point pulled and putting in a deep well. This will be done eigher this week or next. My plumber told me our water table is too high, which depending on the time of year and rainfall, will cause color and odor in the water. Thank you again. JoAnne
