I wholeheartedly recommend Topinabee Pines Cottage to fellow travelers! Drive right up to the side door, climb two steps, and enter this clean, comfortable, charming home-away-from-home. The beds (1 queen, 2 twins) are comfortable; the bedding is fresh and new. There is a generous closet, chest of drawers, good lighting, and attractive decor in each bedroom. The single bathroom (tub/shower combo) contains all the niceties of home--even a cute nightlight! The living area houses a comfortable sofa and three upholstered chairs (two of which recline) along with tables and good lighting for TV viewing or reading. The kitchen/dining room is spotless, with beautiful cookware and dishes, a full-size range, dishwasher, refrigerator, drip coffeemaker, toaster, garbage grinder, and microwave oven. Great lighting and windows in the kitchen/dining area--watch the birds at their feeder or gaze out at the beautiful trees past the backyard picnic table. The washer and dryer (hidden behind folding doors in the dining area) are very helpful to travelers on the go--and laundry products are provided for your use. Clean towels, bedding, and beach towels as well as games and jigsaw puzzles can be found in the hall closet. In the entryway, you can find resource guides for the area--very helpful.
From Topinabee Pines, we explored northern (lower) Michigan from Traverse City to Alpena. Of course, we visited Mackinac Island--an absolute must! We also drove up to "Soo" St. Marie and saw the great locks in action. Petosky and Harbor Springs are charmers. History and beauty abound--and water is never far.
