Perfect Hideaway, Must Stay!

  • 5 of 5

During our stay at Topinabee Pines Cottage we felt like we were at a home away from our home. The 2 bedroom cottage gave us ample room for 2 adults, 1 teenager and 2 dogs. The full size kitchen, equipped with everything we needed, allowed us to cook and eat as a family. The location was a perfect distance from the beach and the park for our dogs to run and exercise. Indian River and Cheboygan are the closest towns with Gaylord, Petoskey and Mackinaw City being only 30 minutes away. When traveling to Northern Michigan we always use VRBO, this cottage is by far the best one we have stayed in for the price. Owners were quick to respond to all requests. We will return to Topinabee Pines Cottage! My only regret is that I forgot to sign the guest book :(

Nice comfortable stay

Nice comfortable stay. House was equipped with all the stuff that one would need typically.

Recommend this place for small families for a quiet getaway.

Weekend getaway....

  • 5 of 5

Cute, cozy cottage in a quiet area. Home was very clean and well stocked. Great location. Close to Mackinaw, Tunnel of trees and Legs Inn. Short walk to Mullett Lake. Kristi, the owner, was wonderful to work with. Our only suggestion would be to update the tv for movie nights :)

"The Great Up North"

  • 4 of 5

We planned on staying 2 nights, but had to cut our trip short. Kristi's parents were finishing up cleaning when we arrived, but pointed us in the direction of the only open restaurant on a Sunday afternoon "Breakers" my husband loved having a big screen to watch football on as we enjoyed a late lunch. We then took our lil' dog Sara on a long walk on the rails to trails that ran alongside beautiful clear blue Mullett Lake. I'm guessing that any season would be fun to travel on these trails no matter what your mode of transportation would be:) The bed was extra comfy & even though you will be close to neighbors on each side, it was quiet. We loved having coffee provided in the morning as we forgot to pack that:) The only problem's we had was with poor reception on the t.v., it is not a flat screen tv, but an older small tube t.v. (football kept cutting in & out during the game) There were a couple light bulbs that needed replaced & the previous guests had cooked something strong that lingered throughout the house during our stay. (I usually pack a scented candle, but forgot on this trip) We have stayed at several VRBO rentals & I like to know that the reviews are honest, so I try to let other guests know what we experienced. We love the beauty & freshness of this area & staying @ a cottage is so much nicer then staying @ a hotel:) Thank you so much Kristi, we hope to return to your cottage on our next trip "Up North".

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Such a cute and extremely clean cottage. We stayed for 2 nights on our way home after a week way up North in the UP. It rained during our brief stay but we still checked out the lake, had dinner in one of the great local restaurants and went over to Indian River to check out antiques at a place called 'Antiques Roadhouse'-- had some good purchases. Gorgeous area. We will definitely be back to this area! I'm sure it's even more beautiful in the sunshine! Thank you, Kristi, for the beautiful cottage.... such a relaxing couple of days.

Wonderful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in the cottage from 7/16-7/21 and it is absolutely wonderful! We have rented 5 cottages over the last 5 summers in Topinabee and this one is the best. Two large bedrooms, one with a queen and one with two twins. Large family room connected to the large, eat in kitchen. The whole cottage is VERY clean! The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need in this cottage. Kitchen equipment, full set of dishes, grill, laundry, soaps, towels, box fans, extra bedding, blow up mattress, pull out couch, board games, family videos, condiments, seasonings, paper towels, even down to the kleenex and air freshener! There is a full size washer and dryer and dish washer. Hot water was always available, with ample water pressure. The cottage is in a quiet area, not too near the road, so you don't hear any road traffic. Very peaceful, and a short walk (about 3 blocks) to the public beach. Beach is really nice and has swings for kids, a long dock for kids to jump into water and the public library is also there. The bike trail runs right through there and is excellent for biking, running or walking. Local Topinabee market (which has everything, plus excellent pizza) is also about 3 blocks away (across from public beach). Public boat launch is about 1/4 mile down from public beach. Mullet Lake is HUGE and is excellent for boating, kayaking and water skiing, etc. Lake is NEVER crowded! Mullet Lake is connected to Burt Lake through the Indian River. Take a boat trip through the town of Indian River and you can stop and have lunch along the way. Very relaxing getaway, and Topinabee is only about 15 minutes south of Cheboygan which is a larger town and has movies, larger stores, etc., for the occasional rainy day. Also helpful is that the owner's mother lives next door and is very friendly and willing to answer any questions. Owner was flexible on dates (unlike many cottages in peak season) and we did not have to stay the full week. Owner responded quickly to any questions I had about booking. We absolutely recommend this cottage!

Car: recommended

Located in easy striking distance of the Inland Waterway (via Mullett Lake), Mackinac City/Island, Petoskey/Harbor Springs, the Boyne area ski resorts, and the Great Lakes, Topinabee Pines is the perfect base for your northern Michigan vacation
