Home away from Home in Northern Lower Michigan

  • 5 of 5

This pet friendly cottage in Copemish, MI is absolutely wonderful. It is very clean and has all the comforts of home. The owners and renters clearly take great care of the home and surrounding acreage. The dog run area is great, and the ability to explore around the rest of acreage is fun and relaxing. We will always remember this place, and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. We have stayed in many up north sites, but this is by far, the cleanest. It is nice to be able to get away up North and have fun in the outdoors, but it is also nice to be able to relax in a clean comfortable environment at the end of the day.

George's place is clean, peaceful, and just a perfect spot from which to explore northern Michigan

  • 4 of 5

This is such a nice, cozy cabin. There was wood in the firepit, and a gas woodstove inside for all of Michigan's surprises. I had to call the managers twice because of my own forgetfulness and they were quick to answer the phone and take care of my needs cheerfully, just like a friendly mid-westerner does. We really enjoy the peaceful setting and especially the sauna.

Perfect Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I just got back from staying the weekend at this perfect little home away from home. The location is just a short drive from lake Michigan and beautiful hiking trails. Stop by the Copemish Family Market and take advantage of the full kitchen, or take it easy and have a home cooked meal at the Bear Claw Cafe. Both are conveniently located right on M-115. During our stay we took advantage of the private sauna after a long day of hiking. Perfect way to relax before slipping into a nice comfy bed. Other reviews mentioned a strong pet odor, but neither my boyfriend or I noticed such an odor. It's a dog friendly house and dogs will be dogs, but our experience was it is very clean and did not have a strong odor. We both agreed we would defiantly rent again. Hopefully next year we can book it as a ski retreat.

Great spot for Crystal Mountain

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend. It is a very nice house and a great location for Crystal Mountain activities, we used it for a snowboarding weekend. The rental is located about 10 minutes from the base. Its so close we elected to take our lunch break at the rental to avoid the crowds. The house has a nice gas stove that heats the home and you after a day in the snow. It also has a washer and dryer which is nice. We actually brought our 3 year old lab with us as well since the rental is pet friendly.

Nice house close to Crystal Mountain

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Loved the location of the house to Crystal Mountain. We hiked to the top of the hill and the view was spectacular. We would definitely rent again.
