Nice place, nice lake, nice vacation
This was a great spot to take a relaxing vacation. The cabin is nice. It has two bedrooms on the main floor, one with its own bathroom. The kitchen/ living room area is on the lake side of the house with nice glimpses of the lake through the trees. There is a large wrap around deck with a good gas grill, two outdoor tables and plenty of chairs. Since we had perfect weather all the time we were there, the deck was a perfect spot to be.
Downstairs, about half of the basement is finished into one large room with windows and a door that opens to the lake side. There are 4 single beds and a second refrigerator in this area.
For a cabin, the place is great. It is well maintained, quiet, comfortable and it much nicer than most resort cabins we have stayed at. Nicer by a lot.
At the lake, there is a sun dock and a boat dock. I was able to launch my 14’ fishing boat at a nearby ramp and tie it up at the dock From Six Mile Lake you can get to an adjoining lake, and if your boat is small like mine, you could power it through a large culvert and pull it across some shallows to yet another lake. (Search on the internet for “chain o lakes” in Michigan.) We saw a lot of ducks, herons, some geese, deer, and what I think was a muskrat as we cruised the waterway. Fishing wasn’t very good for larger fish, but if you want to keep some kids happy you can catch small pan fish all day long. I also caught bass, northern and crappie – all kind of small. At the boat ramp, I talked to local fishermen who were coming to the lake to fish, so there must be at least a few good fish. The lake was very quiet on week days and even for the Labor Day weekend, the boat traffic was not too bad.
The nearby towns of Charlevoix, Petoskey and Boyne City all are an easy drive and all have fun things to do, places to eat and nice shops.
The owners were great to deal with and we are thinking about making reservations for next year.
