  • Great lakeside fun!


    My teens and I had a great time here! The property is beautiful and perfect for swimming, kayaking, and paddle boarding! The deck was a wonderful place to sit in the morning to enjoy coffee, or sit in the evening to see the beautiful sunset! The owner provided many essentials, including some fun games.

  • Family Vacation


    We had a nice relaxing family vacation in this cute house. The house has a huge deck with a beautiful view of the lake. Kids loved the peddle boat. My only suggestion would be air conditioning. Even if it’s just window units in the bedrooms. The rest of the house gets nice and cool at night with just the windows open.

  • Should have brought cleaning supplies


    The place was a bit dirty, i have pics. I was not happy that I booked this place through VRBO and then was handed off to Evolve and paid fees to both companies. Was not happy with the incidental damage fee that was not refundable after I left the property as good or actually in better condition and did not have any incident or property damage. I would like somebody from VRBO to contact me.

  • Peaceful Up North Get Away


    Perfect place for a quiet get away. Beautiful view of the lake along with a well stocked home with everything you needed. Lake was great for swimming and pedal boat rides. Close to Tawas for shopping and eating.

  • Great rental


    Great property for family of 4. Property was very clean and what we expected from listing. One item to call out, there is no washer/dryer available.
