  • Great Vacation house

    "We just got back from this rental. "LOVED it" House was very clean and had everything we needed. There were also a few surprises not listed, like the big tub for one. This was a simple and uncluttered home. Lots of storage so we could unpack. We enjoyed the puzzles on our rainy days and evenings (Thank you) The beds were not bad, but they could use newer sheets, they were old and the elastic was all stretched out and would not stay on the bed. But most important they were clean. We brought our kayaks and spent a lot of time paddling around the lake. We did find a nice sand bar across the lake were we spent a lot of time swimming. And after spending the day sight seeing it was so nice to come back to the house and relax. The owners were great to work with. There were a lot of information of things to do and see in the area. My kids don't agree, but I loved that their was no wifi, LOL Would defiantly come back."

  • 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 location and beach

    "My family and I were needing a great hideaway yet accommodating place for one of my daughter's college graduation. This place was perfect. It had all the amenities, space and spectacular view that made this trip for us. We played the games and enjoyed the water so much. It's only about 25 mins to Houghton and there is so much to see and do and the property is centrally located to get around. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook some meals. I highly recommend this property."

  • Amazing location!

    "I stayed here once before while there was still snow on the ground. This time was even better. The house is perfect for a small family. It feels very private with access to the amazing Lake Superior shoreline. Everything was clean and I slept just like I was at home. Close enough to town to get supplies but at the end of a dead end road with few neighbors."
