I stayed here for a week in September and would definitely stay here again. The house is tucked away right on the edge of a lake and is very clean and comfy. The view is spectacular. I especially liked looking up at the stars at night - something you can't really do in the city. Although I didn't use them, boats, kayaks, fishing poles were provided. Fred was great - very knowledgable about the entire state of MI and had lots of great info and suggestions on things to do. The city of Alpena is only a few minutes away so getting groceries is not a problem. The colors were just beginning to change, but I can imagine how spectacular it must look at the peak of the fall season. Great getaway - I highly recomment it!
