First off, the pictures do not give this house justice. Is it very clean, well kept, and very spacious! The lake is so beautiful; the kids (age range 3-9) loved playing in the sand and swimming into the evening. During our stay, we visited Taquamenon Falls, Mackinac Island, the Soo Locks, and Petoskey. There's a lot to do in the area, but on days we wanted to relax, we loved just hanging out at the house. Walmart is a short 8 minute drive away, so getting groceries was a breeze. Jeff (Manager) was very helpful and was always available for questions. I highly recommend this property, especially if you will be coming with young children!
