Perfect up North cottage by a lake
The cottage was easy to get to, was exactly as advertised, and was clean and inviting. The lake view, fire pit, pontoon boat, and canoe made it special. Very quiet. Pontoon boat is pretty old and not in great shape but it came with the cottage and engine ran fine. Would be nice to have full size paddles for the canoe, and some tips for fishing- we didn’t have much luck except for a few small ones we threw back in. A great location close to Mackinac City and Island. Thanks for a great weekend!
Cabin is so quiet and peaceful. Frank and Sherry thought of everything you could need. Lake was so beautiful--never even saw another boat or person.
We had a great time. Everything we could need was provided. It was quiet, and so relaxing. Thank you so much for opening your wonderful cabin to us.
Wonderful and quiet getaway location!!
We had an excellent stay! Everything we possibly could have needed was there. We really enjoyed the quietness of the area and use of the boat and paddleboat! The cabin is located in a perfect spot and close to many other attractions to see. We were able to go to Mackinaw City, Soo Locks, Tahquamenon Falls State Park, swam in Lake Michigan at the sand dunes, and spent a day at Mackinac Island during our stay. This vacation included everything our family loves to do! Thank you so much for the wonderful stay!!
Great Cabin, good fishing, relaxing & restful
Nicest cabin we have stayed at over the years. Very quiet and restful. Beautiful sunsets. Enjoyed the loons in early morning and late evening. Evening camp fires and S'mores were a highlight. Having S'more ingredients provided was a nice touch. Fishing was good. We even coped with going cold turkey withdrawal from the internet for the week. Granddaughter was a little disappointed at not being able to swim, but made up for it with fishing. Use of boats was an added bonus, although the paddle boat was a little cranky, but fun. All in all, a really good week.
Perfect in every way
This place was more than we could have hoped for. Everything was perfect. We didn't want to leave. We hope to do it all again next year. Not a single conplaint. Even the teenagers (3) thought it was great.
We look forward to our 7th year of VRBO renting at Uncle Frank's Cabin as the 2018 summer season approaches. Each year we are improving Uncle Frank's Cabin and we look forward to new and returning travelers.
Uncle Frank's Cabin is ideal vacation rental for the traveler looking for a secluded hideaway or the traveler looking to sight see Northern Michigan. Uncle Frank's Cabin brings together the best of both worlds. Wake up to the soft cooing of loons and an early round of Lancaster Lake fishing right off the dock. Then enjoy lunch and fudge tasting in Mackinaw City, followed by a beach afternoon at the crystal waters of Sturgeon Bay located near Cross Village. Finish the evening with a flame grilled cookout at Uncle Frank's Cabin with alternating rounds of horseshoes and gooey s'mores.
