  • Awesome home away from home!

    "We stayed here for two weeks this summer after spending the previous ten years or so staying a little further north near Hessel. A bunch of date conflicts kept us from renting out there this year, so we cast our net a little further out to find a place. St. Ignace is familiar to our family, so we decided to take a chance on a new place and picked this one, as it was in our price range and we liked the view from the photos. Boy, did we luck in to a great house! The owner is great to work with and super responsive. He wants to make sure you enjoy all that St. Ignace has to offer, and that's a lot! We enjoyed the Saturday night fireworks right from the back deck (twice!), the downtown area with shops, marina, amenities and other attractions is literally a couple blocks away and an easy walk. There are three parks nearby, one with a splash pad for the kids, plus play equipment and places to wade in the lake. All three ferry services to Mackinac Island are within walking distance along the boardwalk, or a short car or bike ride if you prefer. There is a Dollar General down along the boardwalk, and a full-service grocery store just a short ride up the hill behind the house (walkable for the adventurous, I suppose). The Trading Post a little north on Busuness 75 has a full-service butcher shop with fresh meats and some great prepared foods, too. We like to cook at home some days and eat out on days when we are out of the area. The kitchen in the house has a decent stock of cookware and utensils, making it easy to prepare meals at home. There is a gas grill outside and an electric stove in the kitchen. St. Ignace has a good number of restaurants in town. Some of our favorites include the Driftwood, Fred's Pub, Clyde's (which still has car-hop service!), BC Pizza, the Trading Post... And we still haven't tried some of the other places in town yet, but they look good! St. Ignace itself has events almost every day in the summer. In addition to the fireworks, there is live music on a few evenings, historical tours and events, movies in the park, daytime events at the library... Seriously, if you come here and are bored, you're doing it wrong! All that said, our favorite thing to do here has probably been to sit on the back deck and just watch the boats go by. Totally relaxing. Great house, great owner. Thank you for making our stay so relaxing!"

  • Best Family Vacation EVER!

    "Our family had a wonderful time at this beautiful lakefront home. Everything was even nicer than the pictures online. I'm extremely picky about which VRBO listings we rent, and I often take days or weeks to decide on a place. It's paid off, though, because we've had great experiences every time. This home, however, was the best so far! It was remarkably clean and well-stocked. It was beautifully decorated and comfortable. The lake was amazing. Even the neighbors were amazing (friendly, helpful with fishing tips for the lake, local dining, etc)! It was perfect for our family of 5 (kids ages 12, 10, 7). My brother stayed with us for 2 days, and then my parents-in-law stayed for 2 days. It was comfortable for us all. We loved the lake, kayak, paddle boat, hammock, porch, croquet, swing set, boat house patio, claw foot tub, and all less than 10 minutes from Mackinaw City! Lake Paradise seems like a best-kept secret. There's so many other lakes in the area, this one has very little boat traffic. Also, the home is on a very low-traveled dirt road, so it is SO QUIET here! The only caveat I can possibly think of is there is no air conditioning. The evenings were a bit muggy but fans kept sleeping fairly comfortable. My mother-in-law did mention she would have appreciated a window AC unit in her room. It does have at least 4 fans, though, throughout the house - and the breeze from the lake is wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing your place with us! I do hope we can be back next year"

  • 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."

  • Great location with all you need is there

    "This is a lovely cottage and all that you will need if you are looking to relax and have a good time with family and friends. It is small, well maintained with great yard area. Includes a great hammock, lots of sitting places on the deck and in the yard, well equipped kitchen, good lighting and a decent shower. It is about 30 minute from Pitoskey state Park that we loved and also just 5 minutes from a nearby beach where you can view the lovely sunset. The owner is very helpful. She stopped by just to show us how to light the fire at the fireplace in the living area. We would go there again."
