  • Great location!

    "This was a great place and perfect for a family with children. The pool is close to where the condo is located and the pool was well-maintained and never crowded. The owner was very attentive and the condo was a nice place to stay for a week. We would love to stay again."

  • Old-school charm, heaps of character

    "We stayed here for a brief family vacation with my husband and 3 kids - ages 5, 7 and 9. If you've seen negative reviews of this place, perhaps I can clarify and set your expections. It's not a luxury cottage, with en-suite bathrooms for everyone and wall to wall drywall and fresh carpet. What it is, though, is an escape into the past. The way life used to be, preserved almost completely in its original state from the early 20th century. Enter this time machine and you'll find a kitchen with a working fridge, small freezer, cups, silverware, plates and a decent coffee pot. The stove is wonky and the oven doesn't work - a leftover from the gas stove selected by someone two generations ago. Never mind - town is nearby and you didn't want to cook on vacation anyway, did you? If you do, there's a grill outside. Ah, outside. Step into the fresh Lake Michigan breeze and it's about 50 feet to the lake. Pure soft white sand with a few small shells to pick, and deliciously refreshing water for a swim. The dropoff is so far out that you can wade in up to your waist out to about 75 feet from shore – maybe farther, but I didn’t try it. There were no bugs to speak of because of the lake breeze. The family has preserved the interior of the home as it must have been in previous generations. There’s no A/C, you don’t need it. There are adorable decorations on the shelves and a huge stone fireplace, as well as magazines held over from times gone by to turn the pages of as you have coffee on the porch swing. Play some board games or cards while you listen to the lake sounds and the birds outside. And if you’re lucky, get ready to batten down the hatches for a real Lake Michigan storm, which will impress with its sudden arrival and ferocity. Yes, the toilet cubicle is downstairs off the kitchen, but it’s neatly walled off, and private. The shower is in an upstairs bedroom, but it’s worth the inconvenience to stay that close to the beach. No internet or Dish, but if you’re the right kind of renter, you won’t care. One thing I’ll say is the owner could take care to select a few new towels and rugs for the “bathroom” area and improve the quality of one of the beds, which sags a lot. A few new bedsheets would really spiff the place up. The yard, derided as weedy by a previous review, is actually natural beach vegetation, native to the area. And, the place smells like Grandma’s house… but it was very clean. Wish we could have stayed two weeks."

  • Great location right on Lake Huron

    "What a wonderful location and a beautiful house! 10 minute drive from the Mackinaw pier. Right on Lake Huron with an awesome view of the Mackinaw bridge. The sunroom was a wonderful room to spend time with friends and family, day or night! We enjoyed every minute there! Would go back in a heartbeat!"

  • Very well maintained and clean home

    "We took a long weekend trip to Northern Michigan and my family and I rented this house. There were 10 of us and the kids had fun sleeping in their sleeping bags. The adults all had their own beds. The house was well stocked with everything you need and very clean. We had plenty of room with our two boats, not only on the dock but their long driveway accommodated two trucks with trailers and another truck. The large deck was nice for sitting on and relaxing. We didn't get a chance to make s'mores using their outside fire pit but it was there if needed. Wonderful home to rent."
