    Hi Pritisundar, thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We truly appreciate your feedback. We'd like to address the concerns you raised and share some insights from the homeowner's perspective:
    -"Firstly, we'd like to express our apologies that your experience did not meet your expectations entirely. We understand the importance of a satisfying stay. It's crucial to note that the home is accurately advertised without air conditioning or a dishwasher, and the room sizes are clearly depicted in the pictures. The furniture, while new in 2023, is designed in an antique style that complements the 125-year-old character of the home.
    -To keep things extra comfortable during this unusually hot year, we've gone ahead and added three box fans. Your comfort is important to us!
    -We take pride in our professional and thorough cleaning staff, and the feedback from our other reviews attests to their competence.
    -Rest assured, all the games that are advertised are indeed available on-site, and we've even got a few additional ones that are not highlighted.
    -Regarding the doorknobs, they are all in place and functional, with one requiring a specific turning direction, which might not be immediately evident.
    -We understand that wooden floors can creak, particularly in humid conditions, which we've experienced lately. We are genuinely sorry that your experience fell short of expectations, and we sincerely hope it didn't overshadow your vacation.
    We hope that these explanations provide some clarity, please know that it is our sincere desire to provide a welcoming and enjoyable experience for our guests."

  • Close to all the things we wanted to do


    This cabin was close to downtown, sheplers, ferry, and the Mackinac bridge. We enjoyed it, and it was equipped with everything we needed.

    The house was comfortable, convenient, and clean but we did struggle with a few ants in the kitchen. Not an infestation but we saw a few every day. The biggest issue was the loud neighbors who partied till 3 am every night. Since the house had no AC we wanted to open the windows at night but the noise kept us up. A fan for the bedrooms would have been great. With the windows closed we couldn't hear the party. Other than that we had a great time and we appreciated the games, lawn chairs, and amenities provides. We had a great time on the Island and in the city.

    If you are looking for a nice, simple place to stay, bring a fan and it will be perfect.
