Cabin was very clean and well stocked

  • 5 of 5

we had an amazing week. Weather did not cooperate very well but still a great time. The dock worked well for our 25' boat. Appreciated the paddle boat, kayaks and canoe all were used. Caught some nice Bluegills right from the dock. Beautiful sunsets and boat watching. Thank you Doreen for the beautiful vacation, we will hopefully be back.

Relaxing Week on the River

  • 5 of 5

We already booked for next year! Clean and fully stocked cabin right on the inland water way. It's wonderfully quiet and very little boat noise due to no wake rules. Fairly private lot and neighbors are quiet. My only complaints are 1. It was hard to find the first time, but signs are up to help guide you to the cabin and 2. The kids couldn't really swim there due to all the seaweed and soft sediment, but Devos Beach and Burt Lake State Park are a very short drive to town. Obviously, my complaints are NOT keeping us away next year! Highly recommend renting from Northern Lakeshore Vacation Home Rentals LLC and Doreen is very helpful and timely in all she does.

Great Vacation and location - We'll be back.

  • 5 of 5

We have spent time at Mullett Lake/Indian River before and really like this area - this rental property was just a perfect add on to something we already enjoy. Our adult children came and went during our stay and there was enough space for all of us. We parked our boat right out front, the trailer in back and used the toys that came with the property: paddle boat, kayak, and hot tub. One small complaint: the first couple nights we were there the mosquitos were out of control - we had to get outdoor spray (not the stuff that you put on) and do it ourselves or we would not even be able to be outside for a minute. They seemed attracted to our Deep Woods Off!! Owners might consider spraying the yard occasionally to keep them at bay. Very nice place - We will be back.

Don't say this very often... AS ADVERTISED !!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome vacation. The amenities were complete. The property and location are top notch.

The Hot Tub rocked. The kayaks were a blast morning and evening.

We rented a pontoon at the Landings right down the way for a very reasonable rate.

Indian River is a really nice little town and there is so much to do and places to see in the area.

But for me the highlight was the location of this cottage. Right on the river.

And the river is right in the middle of a Nature Preserve. We saw Loons, Swans, Otters and Bald Eagles (!!!!) almost every day. One day an eagle flew right over the house with a freshly cleaned meal in his talons. Wild ! We had so much fun. The furniture is all very comfortable.

5 out of 5 !! Clean, updated and what a view! When you go here, pack binoculars. I had brought them for star gazing but was so thankful we had them for watching that gorgeous river area.

Indian River is the heart of the finest outdoor recreational opportunities that Northern michigan has to offer such as lakes and rivers for boating and fishing, forests for hunting wildlife and mushroom hunting, bird watching and recreational trails for snowmobiling, biking, hiking, cross country skiing and ORV riding converge on Indian River. You can come to Indian River and go fast-water kayaking, ORV riding and sea kayaking all in the same summer weekend. If you'd rather do something more passive, substitute reading a book by the lakeshore or riverfront having lunch while watching boats pass by on the waterway and sitting by a campfire in the evening! Indian River is located between Burt and Mullett Lakes, two of Michigan's largest inland lakes and are part of the Inland Water Route, a 38 mile chain of lakes and rivers that begins in Conway and empties into Lake Huron at Cheboygan.The lakes and connecting rivers are enjoyed by boaters, kayakers, sailboaters and a wide variety of powerboats! Indian River is a prime fishing destination for both professionals and amateur fishermen but the professionals don't enjoy their catch any more than the five-year-old who catches his or her first fish while fishing with grandpa! Indian River is also at the middle of the North Central State Recreational Trail, a 62 mile trail from Gaylord to Machinaw City. The Indian River Golf Club has a beautiful 18 hole course and wthin an hour's drive there are dozens of other 9 and 18 hole courses. The Cross in the Woods is the Worlds largest crucifix. It is one of Michigan's top tourist destinations and draws hundreds of thousands of people to Indian River each year.Indian River is at the northern edge of the Pigeon River Country State Forest, home of the nationals largest wild elk herd east of the Mississippi. The state forest also has miles and miles of forestland for hunting, fishing, mushroom & berry picking, camping and hiking.
