Lake house has more than we hoped for!
I have been coming to Mackinaw for decades and since childhood I’ve camped at Wilderness, rented houses on the Island, stayed in beach homes along M119, but none had all that our family wanted: close to M.C., see the Bridge from property, multiple full bathrooms, see the beach/water line from dining table, soft sand for kids to play in, nice grill, and end each day with a bonfire.
This lake cottage on Cecil Bay has all this and more!! We have 4 kids (ages 7-14) and they loved every part of this house and property. We could sit at the dining table (or the deck) and talk (not yell) to our kids playing in the water- they were that close! Our boys caught bullfrogs all week. We had warm sunny weather every day, so we swam every day, even if it was at night during a bonfire on the beach after a long day exploring the UP because with 3 showers it took little time getting ready for bed.
We’ve been stuck at home during quarantine, which made this vacation even better. Yet even when I sat to think about all the properties I’ve stayed at over the last 35 years, none of them fulfill everything on our list- except for this one!
Every time we had a question about the property, we always had a quick response from owners. They were very accommodating and a pleasure to work with. As previous reviews noted, there were little items missing in the house, but a quick trip to Meijer fixed that! We left a behind a chef’s knife, garden sprayer for hose to wash sand off little feet, and a gallon container to make lemonade.
We have decided to make this our preferred Mackinaw destination from now on!
Lake Michigan Beach house
The house is clean and well decorated. We were disappointed that there were only 6 bath towels in a house that slept 8. Fortunately, we had brought beach towels and could use those. The upstairs bedrooms don’t have closet rods or shelves, so we couldn’t hang our clothing. The room I stayed in didn’t have anywhere to place a suitcase except for the floor, so living out of the suitcase all week wasn’t very comfortable. The beds themselves are comfortable, but there wasn’t extra sheets and bedding for the fold out upstairs. The bathrooms are spacious and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook simple meals. Clean, newer appliances. Washer and dryer was nice to have!
The location of this house is wonderful! Close by Mackinac City, but far away enough for peace and quiet. The beach is nice, we enjoyed the fire Pit! Star watching is amazing! State Park right up the road with hiking trails.
Great family week
We had a great week staying at this property. Everything was as promised. Easy communication with the owner. Very private and quiet
Great stay. Loved the beach and fire pit.
Thank you for the review!
Hope you come back and vacation here.
Wonderful property with an awesome private beach!
Loved this property so very much!! We never wanted to leave. Our children loved swimming non-stop and having the beach with so much privacy was great. The house was perfect and we did not have one complaint.
Thanks you for the wonderful review.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time.
Hope you will visit us again.
