We are very happy with this beautiful cottage on Starvation Lake! The cottage was exactly as pictured and even roomier than the pics showed. Very clean and excellently stocked with all needed linens and other items. A beautiful location on the lake with fantastic views from both large picture windows . The beach is clean and so private! We only met one person from a neighboring cottage who was friendly, but other than him we felt like we were on our own island retreat! Clean water and beautiful swimming and sunbathing. It is about 15 minutes to a store, but kalkaska is an easy drive away. Mackinac City took us only 90 min. I would highly recommend this fantastic cottage for a family getaway or group event-we'd love to cone back next year!
