  • Amazing Week at Grey Wolf Lodge!

    "This amazing home is just perfect for a family bringing small children! It is completely stocked with anything you could imagine needing for a week away with a family! The house itself is beautiful, very clean and perfectly appointed. We have stayed in many rentals and this one tops the list! There was nothing that we needed that wasn't there, from toilet paper to martini glasses to toddler stools for the bathrooms! The lakefront was great for our grandchildren, ages 3 and 9. They could walk way out with the sandy bottom and had plenty of room to play. They loved the kids kayaks (which they now want for Christmas) and we all enjoyed the other boats, fire pit and lounge chairs. Great spot to day trip from...we did Mackinac Island, Whitefish Point, Tahquamenon Falls, Oswalds Bear Ranch, The Soo Locks and over to Lake Michigan off of Hwy. 2. Make sure you try Lehto's Pasties on Hwy. 2 and Kings Fish Market in Moran (they have an all you can eat fish fry on Friday nights!) Heather was on top of the whole process and easy to work with. We had a slight issue when we first got to the house and Heather was right on it! You could not go wrong in renting this property!"

  • The best first family vacation!

    "This is the first vacation my husband and I have experienced in more than a decade, and the very first family vacation we have ever tried. My oldest son has autism and, until recently, it was practically impossible for us to do many of the "normal" family activities that everyone takes for granted - including vacations. My husband and I both grew up vacationing in the summer, with a special focus on experiencing all that northern Michigan has to offer. It has been our deepest wish to take our boys up there and show them all the things we loved to do as kids, (and try a few new things we've never before tried). This week could not have been more perfect! Every evening we sat down and "planned" the day trip we would make the next day. Every day this week it was supposed to RAIN too, so I was nervous how that would go. However, no matter where we went (the Island, Tahquamenon Falls, White Fish Point, Sturgeon Bay Beach) the weather was more than perfect. Seriously- not too hot, not too humid and NO rain. We really felt as though we had a charmed vacation. And we are very grateful. Everyone enjoyed the experience and the boys are already talking about what we should do next year. The cottage was the PERFECT "home base" for us while we introduced the boys to northern Michigan. It provided a home-like space where we could build in a routine and my son could feel comfortable. It was small enough to offer the cozy, "cottage-feel" I wanted, while still offering sufficient space and privacy when someone needed to catch their breath. It was very clean, well-maintained, and offered all the amenities as advertised in the listing. The owner even provided a ready-to-light fire pit for roasting marshmallows at night. The cottage is perfectly located a few blocks from downtown Mackinaw City with easy access to parks, beaches, shopping, restaurants, etc. The owners were only a phone call away and offered great tips about restaurants to try and a lovely local beach (that was the most beautiful/clean beach I have ever seen!) We could not be more satisfied or grateful for such wonderful accommodation. Thank you Diane, for a providing a safe, comfortable home base where we could experience a really fun and memorable family vacation. To see our boys enjoy all our favorite childhood activities, explore many beautiful places in northern Michigan and, most of all, to feel like a "normal" family is truly priceless. We highly recommend this cottage."

  • Awesome home away from home!

    "We stayed here for two weeks this summer after spending the previous ten years or so staying a little further north near Hessel. A bunch of date conflicts kept us from renting out there this year, so we cast our net a little further out to find a place. St. Ignace is familiar to our family, so we decided to take a chance on a new place and picked this one, as it was in our price range and we liked the view from the photos. Boy, did we luck in to a great house! The owner is great to work with and super responsive. He wants to make sure you enjoy all that St. Ignace has to offer, and that's a lot! We enjoyed the Saturday night fireworks right from the back deck (twice!), the downtown area with shops, marina, amenities and other attractions is literally a couple blocks away and an easy walk. There are three parks nearby, one with a splash pad for the kids, plus play equipment and places to wade in the lake. All three ferry services to Mackinac Island are within walking distance along the boardwalk, or a short car or bike ride if you prefer. There is a Dollar General down along the boardwalk, and a full-service grocery store just a short ride up the hill behind the house (walkable for the adventurous, I suppose). The Trading Post a little north on Busuness 75 has a full-service butcher shop with fresh meats and some great prepared foods, too. We like to cook at home some days and eat out on days when we are out of the area. The kitchen in the house has a decent stock of cookware and utensils, making it easy to prepare meals at home. There is a gas grill outside and an electric stove in the kitchen. St. Ignace has a good number of restaurants in town. Some of our favorites include the Driftwood, Fred's Pub, Clyde's (which still has car-hop service!), BC Pizza, the Trading Post... And we still haven't tried some of the other places in town yet, but they look good! St. Ignace itself has events almost every day in the summer. In addition to the fireworks, there is live music on a few evenings, historical tours and events, movies in the park, daytime events at the library... Seriously, if you come here and are bored, you're doing it wrong! All that said, our favorite thing to do here has probably been to sit on the back deck and just watch the boats go by. Totally relaxing. Great house, great owner. Thank you for making our stay so relaxing!"

  • Best Family Vacation EVER!

    "Our family had a wonderful time at this beautiful lakefront home. Everything was even nicer than the pictures online. I'm extremely picky about which VRBO listings we rent, and I often take days or weeks to decide on a place. It's paid off, though, because we've had great experiences every time. This home, however, was the best so far! It was remarkably clean and well-stocked. It was beautifully decorated and comfortable. The lake was amazing. Even the neighbors were amazing (friendly, helpful with fishing tips for the lake, local dining, etc)! It was perfect for our family of 5 (kids ages 12, 10, 7). My brother stayed with us for 2 days, and then my parents-in-law stayed for 2 days. It was comfortable for us all. We loved the lake, kayak, paddle boat, hammock, porch, croquet, swing set, boat house patio, claw foot tub, and all less than 10 minutes from Mackinaw City! Lake Paradise seems like a best-kept secret. There's so many other lakes in the area, this one has very little boat traffic. Also, the home is on a very low-traveled dirt road, so it is SO QUIET here! The only caveat I can possibly think of is there is no air conditioning. The evenings were a bit muggy but fans kept sleeping fairly comfortable. My mother-in-law did mention she would have appreciated a window AC unit in her room. It does have at least 4 fans, though, throughout the house - and the breeze from the lake is wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing your place with us! I do hope we can be back next year"
