About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, sleeps 6

This wonderful Lake Huron waterfront property is a jewel! It's located on 5 acres with 330 feet of frontage on beautiful Lake Huron, just 5 minutes west of Mackinaw City. You can enjoy the peace and solitude of this lovely property or be in town in 5 minutes for your nightly ice cream cone. It features 2 bedrooms plus a queen size sleeper sofa and will accommodate up to 6 guests. The home is expansive with 1800 sf of comfort and comes equipped with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing Northern Michigan vacation. It has a large eat-in kitchen with a breakfast bar for family gatherings. There is a nice natural stone wood-burning fireplace to take the chill off the northern Michigan evenings and lots of outdoor space. There are 2 decks, a fire pit, picnic tables and outdoor seating areas for enjoying picnics or sunbathing. The spacious yard overlooks Mackinac Island and the Mackinac Bridge. The view is spectacular! There is also an adorable beachfront cottage (Million Dollar View) on the property that may be rented as well to allow for extra guests. There is also "Little Lem's" and Lem's #2 available if you have a large family or want to plan a family reunion. The beach is rocky and we recommend water shoes. This vacation home is super clean and comfortable and is sure to provide the relaxing family vacation you are looking for. Bring your bikes and canoes/kayaks. There is a 60+ mile bike/hiking trail across the road from the cottage and you can easily launch your canoe or kayak from the waterfront.

Comfortable home with view of the lake

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Lem's Paradise. We were two couples and the two bedroom, two bathroom accommodations worked out well for us. The home had plenty of room for us to spread out and relax. The kitchen was large and we were able to prepare our own meals. The dining room table gave us a good place to eat. We also enjoyed sitting on the outdoor patio and made use of the grill that was available. We were disappointed in the limited options of television stations. Our recommendation would be to provide a better television service such as satellite or cable. Other than that, we were pleased with our stay at Lem's Paradise.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for your suggestion. Unfortunately, we are out of reach for satellite and cable is not available to us yet. In general, guests don't come to watch TV when there is such an abundance of natural beauty to enjoy - the views of the Straits, Mackinac Island and the Mackinac Bridge are hard to beat! We do provide TV's 'with DVD players and DVD's for our guests to enjoy. Warm regards, Diane Moreno

A Great Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A clean and family-friendly property!!! Loved the lake view!!! The location was great, just a short drive to Mackinaw City. It would be nice if more bathroom necessities would be provided, like more washcloths and toilet tissue.

2nd sister Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful place to stay and would recommend to anyone interested. Very spacious and very clean. Close to Mackinaw City for going to town but just far enough to be in the country on the water. When we were there, many pockets of rain, but the last day, we caught the most beautiful sunrise. Us 5 sisters enjoyed ourselves. Definitely would go again.

This property is paradise! You're close to Mackinaw City but not in the crowds and busyness!

  • 5 of 5

You have a peaceful and gorgegous view! The house is very comfortable and beautiful! We stayed there with our three teenage daughters, one is in a wheelchair; the house was very comfortable and open to handle her chair and moving her around!! We loved being away from the chaos of the hotels but loved being only 6 miles from everything!! We would recommend this property, highly!!

Paradise cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful. We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was very clean, nice, comfortable and well furnished. We could see the lake from the living area; very relaxing & beautiful. We also enjoyed seeing the hummingbirds feed. We enjoyed our walks down to the lake/water from the cottage. The scenery was outstanding, It is conveniently close to Mackinaw City where we enjoyed eating, shopping & walking.
