  • 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

  • Wonderful getaway


    Our family had a wonderful getaway! We enjoyed kayaking on the lake, swimming in the shallow water and the wonderful lot. It was less than 30 minutes to Cheboygan, Mackinac City and St. Ignace. It was convenient and relaxing!

  • Wonderful family get away


    We had an amazing time at the brown log cottage. It was very well kept and had all of the essentials needed for our stay. Our neighbors in the other cottage were very friendly and we enjoyed having fores with them.

    We really loved the cabin and property. Pictures a little deceiving how far cabin is from dock. (if your young its okay) Pretty clean but needs a few cobwebs removed. (Bathroom light over sink and fans in bedroom). Back patio is best for sitting out at night and having dinner. We do recommend this vacation rental.
