  • Wonderful Place


    This was a wonderful place to stay for the weekend! It was a bit bigger than it looked in the pictures, which was great. The shower was a little bit small, but very usable. The only thing missing qould be a sponge or dish cloth to wash the dishes with. Everything else was wonderful!

  • Cute property and great guest services


    Cabin was as described. Very clean. Management was available and checked in to make sure all of my needs were met. I would recommend this property.

  • Cute little getaway


    Cute little cabin. Represented acutely in listing. Owner/manager was available if needed and checked in to make sure my stay was going well and if I needed anything.

    Included everything needed for a relaxing getaway. I would definitely recommend.

  • Pics are deceiving


    Property is in a decent location, however the photographs and description do not really give an accurate representation. It is walking room only for one person at a time. Place needs a good scrub and I would not call the dock useable as it's old, rickety and boards are loose. We got there, set down our stuff and I distracted my daughter at Petoskey State Park while I looked for a hotel. We picked up our stuff and left. Counter was dirty, floor was dirty and the shower was disgusting!! Would not recommend unless you are desperate for somewhere to lay your head for a night.
