  • As advertised

    "We drove up from Nashville, TN with our 3 boys (17/8/7) for the week as a family vacation. First thing they said upon arrival was "we're never leaving". First night they caught a few bass off the dock, like mentioned in the listing. We rented a boat for the week and moored it off the sandy beach. Rather than do the tourist thing in town, we just spent the whole week on the lake tubing, fishing, swimming, hitting the islands, and then campfires & smores at night. Met the neighbors and they're just wonderful people. The cottage was comfortable with plenty of room for the 5 of us. The owner was very helpful and communicated all info to us effectively. Everything worked properly at the cottage and the pictures/descriptions posted here are accurate. Well, no picture can do justice to summer sunsets on the lake here. We absolutely loved our time and hope to be back."

  • Everything you might need.

    "A lovely, well furnished, comfortable home away from home. The lake front is perfect for family activities. Roomy deck, shallow water and quiet neighborhood made for a great 3-generation vacation. Well located for exploring the TC and Leelanau Peninsula."

  • I wanted to keep this property a secret!

    "Our whole family (+ dog) just came back from a stay at Fiebing Lakes Retreat and "Wow!" is the easiest way to explain our time there. Most other places up north in MI sit on shared lakes and you have to deal with other people around you. Not so at Fiebing - the only people you deal with are the ones you allow through the gate at the property entrance! Can't speak highly enough just how great it was to have no one else around and be able to enjoy our own private place. The trails into the woods were great - the blue trail goes around the lake, was recently mowed, and level enough for trail running. The red trail branches off from the blue one and is a little less traveled, but still fine. We had 3 boats at our disposal: a canoe, a small rowboat, and a larger more stable boat. The electric motor fits on either boat and made our time on the lake even more enjoyable by being able to move around the lake and not have to paddle. The water was surprisingly clear and you could see the bottom very easily. The main lake was in front of the cabin and the one you will probably spend all your time on. It has a great sandy beach and that's where all the boats are located. The lake off to the side is smaller and not very easy to access. That said, it didn't stop us from carrying the small boat up and over the hill and through the marsh to put it in the other lake to explore. Speaking of our dog - he loved every minute up at this place. If you have a large dog, this place is like DisneyWorld. He went swimming multiple times a day, dug holes in the sandy beach, went for boat rides with us, & chased the family around the trails out back. Definitely a great break from city living! The cottage has been there for many decades, so expect the typical up-north cottage and you'll be fine. Although older, the cottage is kept very clean, which is always important to us. The view from the living room is priceless and there are plenty of windows throughout the place for airflow or views. The AC works just in case it gets too warm in the daytime. It's also well stocked: plenty of extra linens, towels, chairs for outside, a folding card table for the living room, etc. When leaving, we ran into the owners, who took the time to chat with us and tell us about the history of the place. Very nice people who put a ton of effort into maintaining this huge piece of property. Will definitely be coming back here next year!"

  • Exactly what we anticipated

    "We enjoyed two weeks of relaxation in this quaint little cabin. The location was perfect for our needs and the cabin truly had everything we could have anticipated that we'd need for the two weeks. The owners were very attentive and even surprised our son with Birthday Balloons upon arrival. It did get quite hot during out stay, but we never needed to turn on the portable AC unit, as the cabin is quite shaded and stayed cool. We would certainly rent this cabin again and would recommend it to our family and friends."
