  • Great view of Tawas Lake!


    Cute place for a stay in Tawas right on Tawas Lake. Only 5 minutes from downtown Tawas which was very convenient. Internet was a bit shaky at times but host had it restarted which seemed to improve things. Host was also very responsive to my questions via text.

  • Sparkling Clean & Charming


    When you arrive the outside appearance is simple & tidy. Upon entering you find an over the top clean home. The quality of the cleanliness & very new carpet gives the whole place a clean & fresh appearance. Kitchen is adequate with all new appliances. But it is small, especially the frig. I would make sure to have a cooler for the porch to keep drinks in if you are bringing in much food or beverage. Also plan on bringing in ice small counter top ice maker is there but if you use much ice get a 5# bag.Getting in was a little tricky. As warned by the owner the code lock is finicky. Owner was available by phone to guide us to outside key station but if it was really dark that could of been tricky too. Please find a new solution!!All the furniture was of comfort & in good shape. Bath towels etc. Appeared brand new and in a good quantity. Which is important since there is no washer or dryer. Only disappointment was using the TV. My husband an Engineer & Techie took about 20 mins to get it to function. Selections were very limited with most things to choose from being "CLIPS" not full programs. Being in beautiful Northern MI you might think you don't need alot of TV selection but it rained everyday & night we were there. So nighttime outside time was limited.We would come back & recommend this to family & friends.
