Sitting looking at the bridge made it all worth while.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in early June. The location was absolutely amazing. Just as described. I spent hours sitting lakeside watching water and bridge. We had 5 people staying in house and were very comfortable. Being so close to downtown Mackinaw city was very wonderful, we could run into town for a meal and go right back to house. Owners father stopped in to check that everything was okay early in week, which we appreciated. The neighbors were very friendly and quiet. None of us wanted to leave when the week was done.

A perfect peaceful and relaxing location!

  • 4 of 5

With bikes it was easy to ride into town the "back way" and miss most traffic. Clean and home like. With all bedrooms upstairs and the bunk beds it would be great for families with kids. If you are looking for a quiet and friendly area this is it. We will check this property first when we want to return to Mackinaw City!

Beautiful lakeview cottage that handled our 2 families very well

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion in Mackinaw City last week. The family-owned cottage certainly couldn't handle all of us, so my sister and I found this cottage on VRBO to share. It worked very well for our stay and it was two short blocks from our family cottage. The kitchen was very useful, as it was certainly much larger than what we're used to having at Mackinaw. The bathroom configuration seemed a little odd to me, as there were no showers upstairs. It worked fine as there were two showers on the main level. And a full size washer and dryer! I did not miss the laundromat visits required by our usual place. Beautiful lake and bridge view. They had a nice swing and outside seating. We did take advantage of the metal fire circle (not sure the usual terminology) for making smores. The yard had some very nice shade trees so we spent a fair amount of time sitting outside catching up with relatives. The property was clean and well-maintained. Very impressive WiFi speed at the cottage. We didn't use the TV, but we did take advantage of the WiFi.

We loved our stay! The view of the bridge was awesome! We spent most evenings sitting around the fire pit. So much to do in the area, it was great!

Beautiful Home and View

  • 5 of 5

My mother rented this place for a few female family members and myself for my 40th birthday since she knows my love for up north. This place is AMAZING! So clean, comfy, and the view is breathtaking. We will definitely come back for other stays! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! We made some wonderful memories.
