The cabin is situated on a very nice stretch of the Lake. Boise Blanc island is in the view across the water along with its lighthouse/buoy which goes off every 30 seconds or so. I did not mind it at all, 1 of our friends did, however.
The upper loft area was not usable for us which was unfortunate as there were 3 of us, so 2 bunked together in the "dormitory" room. We did not find that area appealing as it was cobwebby (ceiling and bedframes) and linens were a bit tattered. More adventurous spirits may find it charming - we are a group of 60-year-olds.The red squirrel that was visiting also liked that area so we left it to her ;).
We brought our own linens but did not need them in the rest of the cabin.
Enjoyed the fireplace in the mornings, more for ambience then anything else. It was warm during our stay with only 1 day of rain. Rain brought the pestering flies so we opted to run errands and shop. Rest of the time we had no issue with bugs.
The rock collecting was fabulous, the water clear and cold which was perfect. There is a rather sharp dropoff in the water and wear your water shoes!
We saw only a few people, mostly down the beach from us.
Never had to contact the property owner as the information and rules were laid our plain enough.
This would be a great place for a tight family to stay-the beach and water cannot get much better.
Definitely coming back!!!
Michael was a great host! We had the best time. Relaxing, kayaking, going for walks, enjoying the gorgeous sunsets behind the bridge. We even saw a golden eagle grab a fish from the lake!!! The worst part was having to leave! A definite must to unplug and reconnect! Thanks for sharing your amazing cabin with us!
The cottage was as stated in the description and we had everything we needed!
Wonderful week in an magical setting!
Charmingly rustic as described. Very comfortable with all the necessary amenities.
It was the perfect get away. Exactly what 2 city people were looking for: peace and quiet. Many options for day trips if you can tear yourself away from the deck and the fabulous views. We could see Mackinac Island and the bridge and freighters passing in the distance. A family of wild turkeys made a few trips past the cabin during our stay. We saw a number of beautiful sunsets. We bought some delicious handmade sausage and smoked salmon in Rogers City. Even the overcast days were enjoyable.
Mike was very responsive to all of our questions before and during our stay. We loved the property and enjoyed exploring the area.
Best vacation in years!
My husband, son and I stayed on this beautiful property, with our two dogs in late July 2018. The property is exactly as stated with a private sandy beach that you can walk on for miles and the cabin has access to kayaks and a canoe if you wish to explore the water (which we did.). The cabin itself was perfect, very clean with plenty of room to spread out. It is rustic but that just adds to the charm. The kitchen is small but professionally stocked with anything you could possibly need to cook for a family. The bed linens are hotel quality and very comfortable and there are plenty of beds to choose from.
Mike was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed to make our vacation perfect. The cabin even has WiFi which was great because my son wanted to bring his X-Box and he was able to play every night (happy kid= happy Mom!) and my husband was able to check in with work so he could actually relax! It was a spectacular vacation that I look forward to enjoying again in the future!!
***I had the opportunity of reading the review written by the renters immediately preceding our trip and was astonished by their comments. We arrived on July 22nd and yes, the water was high this year so the beach was not as extensive as it would have been in years past but it was definitely generous enough for any sand activities. We even had a Badminton net set up near the water. We never had an issue with bugs inside the cabin. Outside, yes; the cabin is in the woods, by water, you're going to get a few mosquitoes but not once did any of us see them inside....which in my personal opinion is remarkable due to it being an actual log cabin!
Trip cut short
I wish we would have read a previous review stating the massive amount of bugs and mosquitos that surround the property. So that is why I am sharing our experience. The property is very secluded, short walk to beautiful Huron lake, not much of a shoreline though. A short drive to near Cheboygan, and Mackinac city. The owner was some what attentive, did very little to get Internet service working, which was the only issue (besides the mosquitos) that we had with our stay. In the end, unfortunately we cut our week short, due to the overwhelming amount of bugs. We had a great time in Mackinac Island and we ended up taking a day trip to the UP. We have traveled to the Lake Michigan side of the state, which we have had much better experiences.
Thanks for the feedback, and I'm sorry your experience was not better. A couple of notes: the mosquito season is short and usually over before rental season, We had a late spring this year. This is obviously beyond our control. (And there are never mosquitos on the beach, or in the cabin if you keep the screen doors closed.) The lake level is very high again this year -- so everybody's shoreline is affected. Again, outside our control.
I think your comment about the internet was unfair. I spent hours on the issue and I also gave you a partial refund because of the interruption in service, even though it turned out to be an area outage on Spectrum's part.
I try to make clear that the attraction of our property is its unique location set in wild, pristine nature. Not a "short walk" to Lake Huron -- it is on the lake, with nothing between the cabin and the lake but about 150 feet of sand and wild grass. Where else can you have a mile of sandy beach all to yourself? Where else does the sun both rise and set over the horizon?
