Exceeded my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband said, “Let’s move to Rogers City” when we walked in the door of Mark’s lower rental unit. It’s spacious and nicely decorated. The kitchen really does have all the tools/equipment you need. The whole place was immaculate. I’d definitely rent from Mark again.

excellent for a family get-away

  • 5 of 5

Listing description was accurate and we discovered many special, extra features. Property was clean and well appointed - plenty of towels, extra bed linens. Board games and a good selection of books made for good activities during inclement weather, too.. Mark provided prompt, helpful service and provided extra help on issues that related to our intended plans. I have already recommended this property and will do so again. This house is situated perfectly for anyone, but especially for families with active, young children because of its proximity to the city's beach on Lake Huron. The house is very convenient to the restaurants, bike paths, yacht harbor, and public park/beach. We enjoyed the safety and beauty of our Americana experience. Mark was very helpful throughout the entire stay and we would happily stay again!

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a "base of operations" to see the fall colors and visit a number of destination in Northern Michigan. What a treat it was to find the Lake House. The owner, Mark does a great job of stocking the place with everything you need to feel at home. A trip to the grocery store and we were in business. We stayed in the upper unit but had a chance to tour the lower unit which was not occupied. Both are very nice. The upper unit is a bit smaller but there were only two of us and it was more than enough for us. Enjoyed breakfast each morning at the kitchen table looking out on Lake Huron. If you have a reason to be in this area you won't be dissappointed with The Lake House!

Fantastic Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in Rogers City and now when I return, the Lake House is my first choice for accommodations. The Lake House location is perfect and you can see Lake Huron and activity at the marina while you eat breakfast. You can go for bike rides and walks along the Sunrise Trail which passes by the house. (The bike ride to 40 Mile Point is highly recommended.) What makes this such a great place to stay is Mark. He simply is a great host. He makes you feel welcome and makes sure you are comfortable. Once when I forgot something at the house he went to great lengths to make sure it got back to me. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Rogers City, look no further than the Lake House. I"ll be back!

Me and my family had a wonderful time staying at the lake house. It is a charming home in a beautiful city. You couldn't ask for a better location! Would recommend this house to anyone! Mark and Angela were exceptionally friendly and courteous. We hope to be able to come back again next year!

Rogers City is the jewel of Northern Michigan. It's a lovely community featuring many parks, lots of Lake Huron lakefront, trails, lighthouses, fishing, and more. The 9 mile long running/walking/biking trail that stretches from Harbor View at Calcite, along Lake Huron, to the 40 Mile Point lighthouse is located directly behind The Lake House on Lake Street. The city is brimming with maritime lore stemming from the Bradley Fleet of limestone carriers that called Rogers City and Calcite home for many years. It serves as a fitting home to two outstanding museums dedicated to those that sailed on those vessels: The Bradley Museum and the Great Lakes Maritime Museum. Calcite, the world's largest open pit Limestone Quarry is located in Rogers City and remains one of the busiest and most important deep-water ports on the Great Lakes. Calcite celebrates its 100th Anniversary in 2012.

Feel like having a day trip? Petoskey and Mackinac Island are just an hour away!
