  • Super-nice Cottage and Owner!

    "My family has been coming to the Alpena area for many years, mostly staying at Grand Lake. This was our first time staying on North Bay. Me, my brother, my son, and his wife had a wonderful week at North Bay Getaway. The weather was nearly perfect the entire week; we really lucked out with that! The cottage is clean and comfortable, and has everything you may need for a week's stay. We used the gas fireplace often on cool mornings (very convenient!). The location is very private, with absolutely nothing but woods and beach to the South, and a handful of cottages that you can't see to the North. Steve, the owner, has a place right next door, and is often there in case you need anything, but will never intrude on your privacy. Steve was even kind enough to take us fishing on Lake Huron in his well-equipped boat! He's a very experienced fisherman. We caught four good size lake trout, the largest about 9 lbs. He even filleted them for us, and we cooked it on the grill. Excellent eating! Steve also showed us where the best places to fish Grand Lake are, and I put my boat in there several times during the week, also. Grand Lake has several public launches close by. This cottage is nearly walking distance to both of the Presque Isle Lights. The whole peninsula and surrounding area is very picturesque. The sunsets from the cottage were remarkable! Just gorgeous, looking west over North Bay. The deck is large and overlooks North Bay, with a gas grill and a nice new table and chairs. We enjoyed the sunny days on the deck. The water is very good quality, so you don't need to bring bottled if that's a concern. Satellite TV is great in the evening, or if you get a rainy day. Steve was also very prompt in returning my security deposit. We will definitely be returning to North Bay Getaway!"

  • Peaceful vacation home

    "If you like getting up in the morning and sitting out on the deck with a cup of coffee, listening to the loons and watching the ducks swimming and the sun shimmering on the water then this place is for you. The fire pit is in the ideal spot next to the water. Even though the temperature got up into the 90's the house stayed cool because of all the shade trees. I have to make a special kudo to the updated bathroom! Wouldn't hesitate to rent again. Thanks!"

  • 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."
