  • Fabulously refreshing!

    "We knew it had been a fantastic stay when we tried to highlight "just a few" of our memorable moments while staying at this beautiful cottage, and our list ended up taking up two pages (and even that was cut short by not wanting to waste more pages in the journal:) There were 4 adults and 4 teens, and every one of us had a blast. The kids loved sharing the big bedroom, where they each got their own bed. We adults found ourselves spending almost all of our indoor time on the sunporch, enjoying the sights and sounds of the lake. Of course, what we most enjoyed was the outdoor space. The large flat year allowed us to play many outdoor games, have campfires and just relax in the lawn chairs. The shallow sandy lake bottom lent itself well to water volleyball and the calm bay to kayaking and paddleboating. Everything was so peaceful since we were on the bay and the last house on a dead end road...very quiet and relaxing! The cottage was well located for our needs, as we were only about 5 minutes from Indian River, 20 minutes from Mackinaw City and within a few minutes of hooking into both the Indian and Cheboygan Rivers. We cruised out to Duncan Bay one day and the cruised the other direction another day to dock and eat at The Inn Between. Our kids tubed almost every day, and spent almost all of their spending money on ice cream, eating it twice every day (a mix of Drosts, Dairy Queen, Dairy Mart, Topinabee and The Sweet Shop). Knowing the safety of Indian River, from many past vacations, we also let our kids bike around to the shops and play sand volleyball at the state park while we enjoyed some adult time. Some days we did a lot, other days we did absolutely nothing..making both the adults and kids happy with the trip:) While selfishly I do not want to recommend this cottage to other because it might result in us not being able to "get" our week next summer, I HIGHLY suggest checking into Bev's Pigeon Bay cottage."

  • Amazing week on Grand Lake

    "We had a wonderful time staying at Dana's cottage on Grand Lake. You are near so many beautiful places to visit. We visited the lighthouses, rode bikes, took many long walks with our dogs, built a fire in the fireplace on a chilly night, and enjoyed an Beautiful and different sunset view every night on the deck overlooking the lake. We cant recommend the experience enough, so do yourself a favor."

  • Awesome!!

    "We arrived for our weeks vacation to a clean and well kept home. This is our 2nd year renting a place on this lake but our first at the Robertson Retreat. There is 9 of us (from 75 to 3 months old). There was plenty of room in this home for all of us. We all enjoyed the lake and many of us got lots of use from the water board. We caught enough fish for a meal. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed and the coffee drinkers in the group loved the coffee pot. For the past 2 years we have said we were going to the pool but have so much fun down at the lake we never leave. Alpine chocolate downtown has the best chocolates. We enjoyed the Robertson Retreat so much we have already booked our stay for next summer. And last but not least not one single bug was found anywhere!!!"

  • Wonderful, cozy and a great place to get away from it all!

    "Our young family of 5 stayed there at the very end of the summer. We were very pleased with the home and our time spent there! Paul was very kind and helpful. Upon our arrival we had all the fixings for a weeks worth of s'mores. The house was just right for our family. It was very clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen and home for our stay. The boat was wonderful and we had alot of fun going out daily in it cruising and fishing. The smaller lake was just perfect for our young family and what we needed to do. The sunsets and sunrises were just beautiful to watch on the water. There was even a paddle boat to use, which was loads of fun. The property was very clean and well kept, with a huge supply of wood for evening campfires. Our kids also had a blast playing in the large sand pit area. We enjoyed eating at the Main Street Pizza and BBQ and had delicious ice cream/coffee at the Victorian Cafe. We enjoyed taking in all the beautiful scenery on the scenic byway and took a boat raft tour on the AuSable River, which was just breathtaking. We loved being away from all the main stream of life and enjoying the peaceful and beautiful nature. Back at the vacation home we did have WIFI and cable tv...so we still could connect if we wanted too :)."
