Great location to explore the Eastern UP

  • 4 of 5

Nice lake cottage with beautiful sunsets. The master bedroom and bath are recently remodeled, the others need some work but we're adequate. The living room and kitchen were also very comfortable. The owners were easy to contact.

Beautiful view

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed our time there. But there were some issues with the house. No screens on some windows, no step from back door, bad beds. Beautiful view though.

Everything was perfect!! Plenty of room, loved the heated cement floors, I didn't have to worry about getting them dirty and they were warm. The house was very clean and easy to find everything. Would highly recommend to anyone to stay here.

awesome setting, the house is set up wonderfully

  • 5 of 5

The house layout is fantastic, They have one of the bedrooms that has a fantastic view of the lake, which was a blessing to wake up to. The kitchen had everything that we needed. We had a very relaxing time paddle boating around the lake.

Great place for families!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for families with small children, pretty kid friendly. The house has a great layout - would be perfect for two (smaller) families to split.

The kitchennwas nicely stocked - it had everything we needed.

The lake was shallow, and our 9 year old and 7 year old had a blast swimming and taking the paddle boat put for some spins. The location of the house was pretty good - it's super close to Sault Ste. Marie amd St. Ignace.

The owners were very responsive beforehand, and we had no issues while there.

We will definitly be staying here again in the future.

Great place to take my family

  • 4 of 5

We were up here for a wedding that was held at the fairgrounds across the street. The house was clean and was just the right size for 3 adults and 2 kids. The yard was great and we were even able to have a fire out by the lake as the sun was setting. We had a blast and this house was perfect for us.

3 comments or downsides for us: There were unfinished concrete floors throughout which didn't make too much of a problem, just a bit perplexing, perhaps easier for clean up or maybe the owners are in the midst of renovating. A lot of the windows and door walls did not have screens in them, we wanted to open up the house and let fresh air in (72F and sunny day) but there were too many bugs to do this without screens, once again, more of an oddity than anything that bad. Finally, the lake was a smaller lake and therefore was a bit mucky, we didn't go in, but we were never planning to anyways.

All in all, a great time and the house was clean and well decorated, lots of room inside and outside and in a convenient location between the various UP cities. Thank you for the wonderful stay!
