  • High School Reunion


    Modernized. Clean. Comfortable beds/furniture.

    Clarify ‘directions’. Name of road not on any street signs. Actually is the highway (add that info!). Drove by x 2 looking for crossroad; property drive RIGHT OFF (two line) highway. Much traffic noise, daytime.

    Good restaurant across street. Group of cabins on pretty inland lake. One property building is ‘fish cleaning house’, so must be good fishing, here. 🐟

  • Mini on the Mack


    4 adults made this cottage home while we enjoyed the gathering of Mini Coopers on the Mackinac bridge. We spent 3 nights and it was in a perfect spot. The walls are thin, kitchen complete, sofa & beds comfy, very close to the Northwoods restaurant.

    Myself, husband and sister. Cottage was very comfy, other owners were present and very nice. Only issue was no internet, the guests before us said same thing. Restaurant across street was great. Communication with owner was very good..,but modem was off next door that serviced 2 cottages.
