  • Fantastic - Large - Swimming Area - Boat Dock - Has It All

    "We chose the Stone House due to the positive reviews and the large size of the house. It really is huge. It has 7 queen beds and 7 twin beds in logical combinations spread among the 8 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is the "Crow's Nest" which is large enough for 4-5 people to sleep comfortably. All of the bedrooms are fairly good sized. It also has 3-1/2 baths, full sized kitchen with dishwasher, dining room to seat 12, screened porch facing the water, and much more. It's a 100 year old house so there are some sticky doors, some creaks in the floor, and some windows that don't always cooperate - but our first impression when we got there was "WOW!" Better than we had expected. The setting is serene - right on Scammon Cove which is larger than most inland lakes - and opens up onto Lake Huron. There is a huge boat dock big enough for ANY sized boat. We docked a 24' Sea Ray. Water at the dock is about 3' deep. The firepit was a favorite hangout at night. The owner provides tons of firewood but you can find plenty of driftwood near the water. At night you can easily see the Milky Way and more stars than you can normally see near any city. On one night we were able to see Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, 5 shooting stars, the International Space Station and several orbiting satellites - it's a sky that you just don't see very often. We did see some bear tracks near the firepit a couple of mornings - but never spotted any bear. There are lots of deer and other small wildlife. In the evening you can hear the mournful cry of the Loon, a duck-like diving bird that has a very interesting call. The lone moose of the island hasn't been seen in a couple of years. On the north side of the island are some fossil ledges. We spent a day hanging out there. The drive to the ledges is primarily for 4x4's but we got our minivan and Camry almost all the way there - only had to walk about 1/2 mile. You can rent ATV's on the island if you want to go that route. The IGA supermarket is very good. We found almost everything we wanted/needed. It's the only supermarket on the island and they take that responsibility seriously. They even bake their own bread and muffins. Prices are higher than average due to the remoteness of the island. There is a very good Do-It Best hardware store on the island. As a former builder I can attest to the quality/quantity of their selection. We highly recommend the Stone House!"

  • Great Escape!

    "We just returned from a four night stay in August. By the time I booked in Feb/March, only the two smaller cabins were left, but we were able to fit two families of 4-5 members each into each cabin. The cabins were very clean. AC unit in one and central air in the other. Paper towels, toilet paper, and a few dish towels, wash cloths and larger towels provided in a laundry basket. You could leave the basket out with dirty towels and a request for replenished paper products on Monday and Thursday. Lots of dishes and utensils provided. You can tell the owner, Jeff, and his family takes great pride in this property. Jeff lives onsite and can be seen often doing work around the grounds. Very friendly and talkative :). It looked like there were maybe two other family groups on the property at the same time, but it never felt crowded. There is a nice sized beach, lots of grassy areas for the kids to run and play and a "game garage" complete with bikes of all sizes (bring helmets), foosball, shuffleboard and a few other things. Water smelled a little funny (maybe just because we are city folk!) Water pressure and temperature were good. We drank bottled water. Meijer is just off the main expressway about 10 min down the road. There is a mom and pop corner store a two minute walk if you need pop, chips, etc. but I wouldn't do big shopping there. Bring your own fishing poles. There were canoes and kayaks to use and some provided sand toys, noodles and a few inflatables. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return!"

  • Exactly what we were looking for!

    "This home delivered everything we expected from the listing plus lots of little extras in the details. The house is spotless - an integral part of feeling comfortable in someone else's home - and well decorated. The kitchen has ample dishes, utensils, gadgets and pans. The beds are very comfortable and bathrooms looked recently updated. We used the wifi, TV and grill and all were great! Of course the Lake is the star and it was great to be so close to it. Be sure to decode the letters of the nautical flags hanging in the living room! Very cute!"
