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.

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.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely rent this again. Plenty of room for 10 people to gather comfortably. All of the kitchen utensils that you will need for cooking a big meal. The house was clean and well maintained. The outside was not shoveled well but they did leave a shovel and salt so we were able to fix this. The only thing is in the directions- there are directions from M-115 that say turn right on Michigan Street. It should be Maple.

Disappointing stay

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We appreciated the affordability and being able to have our 2 dogs with us. Other than that, we weren’t super impressed. If you can get past the overwhelming odor that hits you when you first walk-in, you'll probably be fine, but I’m not sure what else you would do anyway since vacations get booked in advance leaving you kind of stuck in the rental you reserved. Unfortunately, the malodor doesn't really dissipate over time, so we purchased Febreze spray and Renuzit air fresheners in an effort to help combat it long enough for our stay. I think if the rental owner would just eliminate carpet entirely from the rental, the issue might be resolved. While purchasing the air fresheners we also had to purchase toilet paper and paper towels because the cleaning woman left us with half of a roll of each for a 5 night stay.

Overall cleanliness is pretty good, but the kitchen table chairs have built-in cloth cushions that are so dirty that you don’t even want to sit on them. The sofa cushions have some sort of a sticky stain on each cushion, so I just flipped those over to use the cleaner side. We also were without internet the entire time because we couldn’t locate the modem in order to reset it (perhaps it’s located in a neighboring house?). This wasn’t a huge deal, but having internet is a listed amenity of the house. Luckily, cell phone coverage is great, so we were able to use our phones to find restaurants and attractions. We never got to enjoy the dog run and trail because you have to go past the one other house on the dead end road and they were always outside with their kids and dog carrying on and cussing, so we just left all of that alone.

This isn’t our first stay in NW Michigan and definitely won’t be our last because we love the area so much, but we won’t be staying here again.
