  • Nice cabin


    Very nice house, beds are good, has everything you will need. Not far from Petoskey or Harbor Springs.

  • Great proximity to all things Fall!


    We truly enjoyed our stay! We were so close to Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Mackinac. We loved how dog friendly the hosts were. Thank you for a great stay!

  • Clean and Updated - time for new mattresses


    Overall we had a nice stay. The property is is clean and updated. The pics are exactly what we got. Two points to consider: 1. It's time to update the mattresses. They are spongy soft. We all woke up sore because of lack of support while sleeping. 2. there is not much there as far as the neighborhood goes. Neighbors were fine and overall it was quiet but we did all of our day trips in Petoskey. That is a 15 minute drive just fyi. The large table was great for breakfast and games at night. One final note that my adult kids were laughing about, the lock was unusually hard to operate. It's a combination of key and digital buttons. It took a while to get the lock to work and then get the key out. My girls would wait in the car while I struggled with the key. It became the running joke for the weekend. I'm gonna chalk this up to operator error but there were no instructions and I'm generally a pretty handy guy. Hope this helps

  • Don't stay


    The outside area was unkept. The neighborhood location was terrible. Though it was obvious the interior had been updated, the furniture was old and worn. This is definitely not worth the price paid

  • Quaint cabin!


    Quaint cabin not too far from downtown Alanson. Quick drive to Petosky (20 minutes) & Pellston with a 30 minute drive to Mackinaw City. Cabin is exactly as pictured with enough amenities in the kitchen to cook a full meal.
