  • Beautiful Property

    "The property is great for children. There is a yard and a play set for them to play on. Plenty room in the house.... More then we needed. We had four adults and four children. The property is on the lake and you do need to take stairs down to the lake but there was no problem with that. The kids were able to swim off the dock and the water in that area was not deep at all. One down fall is the location of fire pit. It is down by the lake and not much room for everyone to sit around. So when the kids were in bed, it was too far for the adults to hang out. The husbands loved the fishing which there are many different fish in the lake. They even caught many of them with the kids off the dock. Super close to the city. The yard is nicely kept up with trees and flowers and has nice shade for those hot days. We had a fantastic time!!!"

  • Awesome Holiday!

    "We stayed at Acorn Cottage for the Thanksgiving holiday. It was so peaceful and I thought Mackinaw City would be slow due to the holiday time. The fact is that there were all kinds of holiday events going on in the little towns. Christmas Tree lighting, holiday parades. Just the quaint events that make you really enjoy the holiday spirit. We really had a tough time to decide if we wanted to go to the festivities as we loved just staying at the cottage and snuggling up to the fireplace. We had a wonderful dinner at Audie's in Mackinaw City. The fish was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. We look forward to visiting Acorn in the spring or summer to enjoy all of the events and natural wonders that this area has to offer. This is a great place to relax and enjoy nature!"

  • The best first family vacation!

    "This is the first vacation my husband and I have experienced in more than a decade, and the very first family vacation we have ever tried. My oldest son has autism and, until recently, it was practically impossible for us to do many of the "normal" family activities that everyone takes for granted - including vacations. My husband and I both grew up vacationing in the summer, with a special focus on experiencing all that northern Michigan has to offer. It has been our deepest wish to take our boys up there and show them all the things we loved to do as kids, (and try a few new things we've never before tried). This week could not have been more perfect! Every evening we sat down and "planned" the day trip we would make the next day. Every day this week it was supposed to RAIN too, so I was nervous how that would go. However, no matter where we went (the Island, Tahquamenon Falls, White Fish Point, Sturgeon Bay Beach) the weather was more than perfect. Seriously- not too hot, not too humid and NO rain. We really felt as though we had a charmed vacation. And we are very grateful. Everyone enjoyed the experience and the boys are already talking about what we should do next year. The cottage was the PERFECT "home base" for us while we introduced the boys to northern Michigan. It provided a home-like space where we could build in a routine and my son could feel comfortable. It was small enough to offer the cozy, "cottage-feel" I wanted, while still offering sufficient space and privacy when someone needed to catch their breath. It was very clean, well-maintained, and offered all the amenities as advertised in the listing. The owner even provided a ready-to-light fire pit for roasting marshmallows at night. The cottage is perfectly located a few blocks from downtown Mackinaw City with easy access to parks, beaches, shopping, restaurants, etc. The owners were only a phone call away and offered great tips about restaurants to try and a lovely local beach (that was the most beautiful/clean beach I have ever seen!) We could not be more satisfied or grateful for such wonderful accommodation. Thank you Diane, for a providing a safe, comfortable home base where we could experience a really fun and memorable family vacation. To see our boys enjoy all our favorite childhood activities, explore many beautiful places in northern Michigan and, most of all, to feel like a "normal" family is truly priceless. We highly recommend this cottage."

  • Fun on the Lake

    "My husband and I spent a week in early September in order to visit his childhood home of Mackinaw City. He grew up there and knew where he wanted to be: on the shore of Trails End Bay, which he considers the best swimming in the area. We had a blast. Swam every late afternoon and then watched the most gorgeous sunsets. Spent the days visiting his childhood friends and favorite places. VERY impressed by the trails in Wilderness State Park. The cottage is comfortable, functional, traditional. The lot is perfect for views and access to great swimming. We participated in the famous Labor Day bridge walk. Loved working the challenging puzzles. Appreciated the DVD selection. Dick and Sue were helpful whenever we had a question. Almost no cell phone coverage, but we considered that a lucky break - granted us a real rest. Thanks for a great vacation."
