About Alice Fernelius

My husband, Dave and I have lived in Northern Michigan for 12 years and on Mullett Lake since 2007. We own local businesses and know the area well. Our goal is to provide travelers with the highest quality accommodations in a great location.

Alice Fernelius purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Alice Fernelius chose Cheboygan

The cottage has been recently renovated with brand new flooring, kitchen and bathroom. With 100' of frontage you will love the views and the swimming. We have a buoy to secure your watercraft and from here you can go to Mackinac Island, Burt Lake and beyond. A great start to tour the famous Inland Waterway. Convenient to many great Northern Michigan towns and tourist spots. Minutes away from Aloha State Park and the trails.

What makes this cottage unique

Rock on the front porch or sit by the lake next to the fire and watch the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see. Quiet neighborhood and large yard for your family activities. Peaceful walks and much more will make your vacation the most relaxing, adventurous time you'll ever have!

The perfect lake house getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome to say the least. There were 5 of us with 3 dogs that stayed from 8/31-9/3. Alice and her husband live right next door and were very nice and informative. We rented a boat from Indian River Marina (about 20 min away) on 9/1 and just cruised around Mullet Lake and Burt Lake. On 9/2, we just relaxed at the house and swam right there off of the back yard. The water is so beautiful! We also found an awesome little corner shop called the Aloha Store that makes fresh donuts every morning. Highly recommended! Everything you could want or need is within a 20 min drive. If you don't want to leave the house though, the house has all of the amenities you could possibly need as well. I would definitely recommend this place for an awesome lake house stay!

Perfect stay on Mullett Lake

  • 5 of 5

Alice and Dave are wonderful hosts and very accommodating. Their cottage is beautiful and the cleanest property of the 10+ I have rented. It has everything that you need for a comfortable stay. We had 4 adults and three small children in our group. The three bedrooms are well appointed as well as the 2 full baths and kitchen; all the comforts of home are available. In my experience, pictures of rentals are always taken at the perfect angle to make the property look bigger/nicer/cleaner than it actually is, however, quite the opposite in this property. The cottage was represented accurately, with the exception that it was much larger than the impression the pictures gave. The front room nearly spans the entire length of the cottage with expansive lake views and sunsets as it is situated on the east side of the lake. A 15-20 minute drive to several restaurants and grocery shopping. The neighborhood is extremely quiet, all properties are well cared for, and all neighbors we encountered were very pleasant. I would not think twice about renting this property again. You will not find more responsive owners that will ensure your stay exceeds expectations. Many thanks to Alice and Dave.

Very nice and well kept home.

  • 4 of 5

The rental home was exactly as pictured and detailed in the VRBO posting. We appreciated being able to secure our boat, the use of the dock for dry boarding and being able to bring our older family dog! The one window air conditioning unit did not work which made for a couple of very warm sleeps, but the owners were very helpful with fans and also when discovered that the kitchen was missing necessary utensils, they got them right to us. Very friendly and kind. We also appreciated the extra fridge in the garage, the nice outdoor grill, fire pit and the fantastic lake breeze! We did not mention this during our stay but because we had six in our group, it would be great to bring some folding chairs so all could squeeze in around the kitchen table for meals. I would recommend this and would like to visit again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback Dave W. It was very hot and great weather for a week at the lake. The air conditioner is rarely used and was part of the cottage when we got it - I'm sorry it didn't work while you were there. We will be getting it taken care of, but we're happy to provide you with more fans. Thanks for the terrific idea to keep folding chairs on hand. We do have extra outdoor chairs as well as a large picnic table and some portable stools, but will look to add those as well. I'm happy you enjoyed your stay and we're looking forward to having you return as well. Please let us know what date works for you! Have a great Fall and Winter.
