Nice Accomodations

  • 4 of 5

Four of us (all women) stayed for 3 nights. We each wanted our own bed so 2 women slept in the bunk room. The main part of the house was great! Clean and lots of amenities - plenty of dishes, pots and pans and supplies. We rated it 4 stars because the overflow sleeping (bunk room off of the garage) was damp and musty...(needs a dehumidifier) and the bathroom off the garage was also damp and not as clean as it could have been. Would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful relaxing stay in a nice environment

  • 4 of 5

The house smelled so clean when walking in the door and the beds were comfortable and clean. We were four adults and we all had plenty of room to stretch out with some privacy. The house was fully stocked with all our needs for cooking, matching dishes, wine glasses and condiments, extra blankets for the cool nights. Their were plenty of big fluffy towels for bathing and swimming. We enjoyed the fire pit by the lake roasting marshmallows and admiring the millions of stars in the Northern sky. The houses location made trips to the Soo Locks, Whitefish Point and Mackinac an hour journey through the sweet smelling North woods. The town of Curtis was rustic but alive with friendly people and included several good restaurants.

I want to thank Julie Burton for being so friendly and easy to work with and sharing history of the UP. All and all a great visit and would stay again. Thank you Jan & Mike, Molly & Preston

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

I chose to stay at this house/cabin because it was centrally located for all the sites I wanted to see during my U.P. vacation. I am SO glad I chose this place! The view of the lake was AWESOME! The house was stocked with pretty much everything we needed, and Julie was extremely helpful! The ONLY thing negative I can even think about saying is that the fridge didn't keep things as cold as I wanted. Don't get me wrong, it did work...I just like my beverages almost FREEZING cold.

The house was very clean and well-maintained. I would definitely recommend this place to others, and I hope to return some day!

There were 5 of us staying here - 4 adults and 1 child. We NEVER felt crowded. Having TWO full bathrooms came in handy!

Quiet and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Curtis at the Lake House. It was convenient to my son's home and nice to have a place to go and relax each day. My grandsons really enjoyed visiting and fishing. Julie was extra helpful and the house was clean and well stocked. Would stay again if the occasion arises. Maybe my next grandsons's graduation?
