About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, direct lakefront on Lake Huron

This cozy little cottage is perfect for two! It sits right on the water's edge of beautiful Lake Huron in scenic northern Michigan. Tucked away between Mackinaw City and Cheboygan, this little gem offers incomparable views of Mackinac Island and the Mighty Mackinac Bridge. There are 5 acres and over 330 feet of frontage on the aquamarine lake. The beach is private and the cottage is peaceful and quiet - a perfect getaway for 2. The cottage is one-room with a full-size bed and dresser, a small kitchen and dining area and a bathroom with a shower. Enjoy a good book on the front porch or sunbathe in the spacious yard. Bring your bikes because if you cross the street, you are on a 62 mile bike/hike trail that runs from Gaylord to Mackinaw. Feel free to bring your canoe or kayak and put in right on the beach for a carefree day of peaceful paddling. The cottage is located a few minutes west of the Village of Mackinaw City where you can enjoy shopping, dining, museums or just an evening ice cream cone at one of the many shops in town.

The property is shared with a vacation home (VRBO 573662) which is also available for rent but located several hundred feet away.

This one-room cabin truly has a "Million Dollar View".

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed three nights in the cottage right on the shore of Lake Huron with a great view of the Mackinac Bridge and Mackinac Island. Everything needed for a stay was provided, but be sure to take additional paper products. We ate breakfasts there and found plenty of places to eat lunch and dinner, as well as much to do in the area. Campfires on the beach are wonderful, but too bad we only had enough firewood for one small fire. As nice as the cabin was, the real attraction is still the view. With all vacations the weather is critical; we had one day of rain and the other two days were beautiful. We would recommend a three-day stay.

A couple's paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this cottage over Labor Day weekend. It is very clean and cozy. The kitchen area is well stocked and you have everything you need for making small meals. The deck has comfortable chairs to sit on while listening to the waves of Lake Huron. Each night we had a fire in the fire pit next to the lake where we could see the lights on the Mackinac Bridge and Mackinac Island. Beautiful piece of property with incredible view. Bike path across the street was nice also. Would highly recommend!

What a great place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is adorable! My mom and I spent 4 nights here in July and it was perfect for us. It's not a fancy place but had everything we needed. The location is perfect for exploring northern Michigan or just relaxing by the lake. If you're looking for a super clean, cozy place with a great view of Lake Huron then you should be happy here too!

The views are spectacular

  • 5 of 5

The views are even better than described and it was a very relaxing place. A nice quiet place to get away from it all. Close to downtown Mackinac City and Cheboygan. We would definitely come back again! Only negative is the bed isn't very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Erik, thanks for your feedback and we agree! The views are spectacular. FYI, we are replacing the bed at the end of the season with a comfy queen size bed. I hope you'll come back and visit again. Regards, Diane
