  • Cozy


    The cottage was immaculate and just as the pictures show. Everything was in good condition. There was a good place to eat and a small store within a mile or so which was wonderful. Our neighbors were very friendly and we had a nice time getting to know them.

  • Great place to stay


    The cottage was super cute and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the views were wonderful of the lake. We really enjoyed getting in the water, sitting on the dock, roasting marshmallows around the campfire with our neighbors. The restaurant a mile or so away was wonderful as well as the store across the road. This was a really neat place to stay!

  • Nice and close to mackinac island


    We had to sleep with the bedroom doors open since the heater is in the front room but other than that, it was a nice cozy little place with everything you need. Sharing the backyard with the renter next door was awkward
