Just returned from our family vacation and already planning our trip next year! The photos and description of this place do it absolutely no justice. The cottage is cute, comfortable and clean. The fishing was great! I loved waking up in the morning with my coffee, sitting on the deck overlooking the lake - so peaceful and quiet - and spending nights by the fire pit. Pat and Myra were very welcoming and helpful. I feel very lucky to have found such a great place, and hope to be able to stay again next year.

Awesome Seclusive, Adventurous.

  • 5 of 5

Okay, first of all, if you are expecting to stay in a luxurious or a very convenient place close to shopping places and restaurants etc. please stay away, not only from this cottage but from Upper Peninsula all together. UP is a secluded, nature's lap and there you don't expect to find in Four Seasons or Mariotts.

This cottage is located few miles from the main area of Munising but it is a very awesome place. It has everything you need, cookware, linen, basic TV, DVD player with many movies, however I won't be expecting you to do watch TV. On the back, there is a beautiful lake, a fire pit, a row boat. What else do you want in adventurous seclusive location ? Take your basic groceries, alcohol and clothes, bug spray and camping stuff and you are all set. This place is good if you are into fishing (which we were not), however, wake up, make good breakfast (eggs) and then head off to Munising, hike and kayak and come back, enjoy the firepit and have couple of beers and fun with friends.

This is exactly what we did when four of us visited this place (all of different ethnic backgrounds). I would give it a 4.25 star rating but I want to give it 5 because other reviewer screwed the ratings of this place. Also the owners are very nice people and their friends, who own a store about 5-6 miles away (Pat and Myra) are super super nice people. I just loved the warmth that I had when I was dealing with them.

So make sure what you expect before you even travel Up North..... the nature's retreat.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased you had a great time. Pat and Myra are wonderful people and have so many items, at their store, that guests may need during their stay. The reason guests love this cottage is the seclusion. There are no brighter stars in the sky, than here, most nights! Thank you for your very nice review!

Very enjoyable mini vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was an absolutely quaint, clean place! Don't let the one bad review scare you off. It is totally represented accurately in both pictures and words. If you are looking for an escape at a reasonable price, this is it.The fishing is awesome. It is close to a lot of trails and Munising attractions. The brand new deluxe grill on the large deck with new patio furniture was a plus. I would come back. I believe the one bad reviewer was looking for a hotel style stay. I knew it was a cottage and we found our stay here delightful. Don't forget your fishing poles (they provide a nice row boat and lake frontage). Oh, and next time I will definitely bring a hummingbird feeder because they were buzzing around too. Enjoy!

We have stayed at this property a number of times, and always found it to be quaint, cozy and well maintained as an up North UP cabin.. ( not the Hilton but CLEAN and comfortable ) The local managers were very helpful and always friendly. This is the kinda place we love to take our Grand kids to since it has all the outdoor charm and waterfront the children want.. As a side note.... after reading the review left by the folks just prior to our stay.We can attest to the owners response.. Everything was in order,as listed on the VRBO site, and the screens were not torn out, nor had they been recently replaced. A rely neat UP cabin on Lake Stella

Owner's Response: The peaceful alone time is exactly what repeat visitors crave from the location of this cottage. Visiting the Secluded Cottage on Stella Lake, is your vacation of options. Sitting on the porch Eagle watching, fishing, or walking the many miles of logging roads, is just some of the options. Kids love being in the "wilderness", while Mom's love "warm showers"! It's like camping with better comforts!

The worst place I've ever stayed...checked out after one night.

  • 1 of 5

Run don't walk from this falling down dump! Ratty, old, run down. Steep stairyway without a railing to a tiny "head bumping" loft space. Pump to well is in the kitchen and groans loudly every time the water is used, including flushing the toilet. Wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. Screens were out of the doors and mosqitos were inside everywhere.

Owner's Response: Our property is rented and re-rented by many guests who love staying here. The beauty of this property is the secluded, rustic setting, and natural beauty of the lake, and is exactly as represented by the listing. It is in the middle of the National Hiawatha Forest. Guests who return to our property are looking for the purpose of being in the woods. This Guest rented during the hottest week in July. He called a week after his rental period, complaining it was too hot. Had he called immediately, we had two couples who desperately wanted the cottage during this exact time period. He NEVER contacted us, or the property manager, that it was too hot for his comfort until a week later, then wanted a refund. Had he contacted us, we could have easily filled his week and would have gladly made arrangements with him. Screens and condition of the cottage were immediately checked and were in perfect condition. There is a hand railing leading to the loft. As stated in our listing, there is no air-conditioning. This guest is accustom to 24/7 air-conditioning in his home state of Arizona, not rugged summers in Michigan.
