Great place to have a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house is very unique in that all 4 bedrooms have windows facing the river. I also appreciated the beautiful view out of the kitchen area as well. The kids and grandkids enjoyed the pool table as well as the basketball. It was a very cozy house with lots of sunlight coming in the many windows. Very peaceful surroundings. The firepit was also very nice with lots of firewood.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was as advertised. Loads of room in the house. Perfect location for a visit to Higgins Lake or the kayak/canoe livery for a trip down the river. Hiking trails just at the end of the street. Bill was a great host asking if there was anything we needed but the house had it all. Wi-Fi worked great both upstairs and downstairs. Would definitely stay again :)

Clean and private cabin with lots of activities for the family!

  • 5 of 5

My family at I stayed at this great vacation home in Roscommon. We had two, 10-year old boys, my wife and I, and my mother and father, and we had ample room in this home with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Very clean and well maintained inside and outside. Lots of kitchen space for feeding and entertaining a family. The outdoors has a very nice paved driveway with basketball court and picnic table. A large deck overlooks the back of the property down to the waterfront and has a charcoal grill on the deck near the kitchen. The backyard is kept mowed and is a great space for the kids to play. We caught fish right from the backyard with the river flowing by. There were two canoes available to use and we took these out on the river for floating up and down stream. We were the only people that we saw on the river on this is very peaceful and quiet. The firepit is a great place for the family to gather each night to gaze at the stars and make s'mores! The neighborhood is very quiet and at the end of the road is a state recreation area with hiking and cross-country ski trails. Easy access to Roscommon for quick groceries. We took a nice daytrip up to the Mackinac area as well. Overall, it was a great location and a nice property with lots to do and keep the kids entertained. Very happy we stayed here!

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Our granddaughters absolutely love staying at this very nice home. An added benefit was the river right there. Bill met us when we arrived. Our vacation was a great one to remember. We would definitely go back. This home was not only spacious but very accommodating. Thanks again Bill for renting your home to us.

Great location, Clean yard and Home

  • 5 of 5

Great location, minutes from numerous canoe launches. Downtown seconds away. Lots of room, crazy strong water pressure. Would stay again. Fred's restaurant was amazing. Four couples, two different dinners, all different dishes; every meal was delicious.

About Bill Torongo

Im a life long resident of Roscommon. I grew up on this river and love all it has to offer. We fish, canoe and swim in the summer and ski in the winter.

Roscommon is home.

What makes this house unique

This house is cool because it is close to town but may as well be a million miles away. There are no canoe liveries upstream so there is no canoe traffic. it is totally peaceful. The trail head for the ski trail is a short walk down the road. The open floor plan with a fireplace in the middle makes for the tops in relaxation.
