We love northern Michigan. The lure of a traditional escape was premier, while the natural beauty, relaxing pace, and charm continue to inspire us. Some people visit; others never want to leave. This is our way of staying!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Dear Matt & Lesley

We loved staying in your beautiful home & grounds. Your colors, patterns,& room decorations are so lovely. We have stayed in other rental properties & really appreciated the cleanliness of your home.

A special thank you for allowing our son to stay in your attic room. He enjoyed his "own space" & thought it was a great room. Thank you for opening up the bright room. It was a special privilege! The place is gorgeous- just like the whole house. God's blessings to your family"

Beautiful home with top comfort

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with my entire family who came from across the country. The house was very comfortable and the owners thought of everything. It was especially nice to have a crib, highchair, and toys for the kids. The decor is amazing and we appreciated the details throughout the house. The yard, dock and fire pit were immaculate and fun for all of us. The pictures in the listing are accurate, and the property is in great condition. It was clean and very well maintained. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the amazing northern MI area. This time of year was great too as the weather was perfect and the trees were just starting to change colors.

Wonderful vacation house!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Pearlview! The house is beautiful and tastefully decorated in antiques. It allowed lots of privacy for us with our 3 adult children. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need for cooking. The lake was peaceful and clean. It is a very short drive to lots of fun things in the Mackinaw area, but is very quiet and tranquil. We would highly recommend this rental!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at Pearlview! It is a gorgeous home that the owners have taken great pains to restore and decorate. It was nice to see so many period details along side a fully modern house with all the amenities and appliances one could want. Though it was just our family of five staying, the house could easily accommodate more than one family. Not only is there a lot of sleeping space, but there are many gathering spots, indoors and out, for people to spread out. The front porch overlooking the lake was our favorite haunt, but we also loved sitting on top of the boat house or down by the dock by the fire pit. It was very secluded and peaceful but only a five minute drive to Macinaw City. This house really has it all! You won't be disappointed!

Great time on Paradise Lake!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time on Paradise Lake in this property. The owners were wonderful to work with, the home beautiful and the setting peaceful. There is a ton of room on the grounds. Although the lake has a nice sandy bottom, there isn't a sand beach. However, the swimming was very nice for the kids. The fire pit and hammock were both huge hits - nothing is as good relaxing in the hammock and fresh s'mores for a multigenerational family vacation. We hope to come back.

Ready to visit again

  • 5 of 5
We shared this house with another family consisting of a total of 11 people ranging from 10-42. The house was a little confusing to find but easy once you knew your way. It was very relaxing and peaceful. The listing description was accurate however the pictures led us to believe it was bigger than what it was. On the other hand, it was not cramped and suited our needs very well. It was very well maintained and clean. It was very well stocked with everyday amenities and the water heater capacity was surprisingly sufficient even for our crew. The swim area was very nice for the kids although you had to watch for some underwater hazards (hidden "toe jammers"). The scenery was great but a little hidden by alot of shade that could be trimmed back a little. This house served us very well as our base of operations as we visited the many sites in the area. You could not ask for a better location to visit Mackinaw City. It was extremely close to everything and you were never in the car very long. The owners worked with us and made suggestions which were helpful. We have no complaints whatsoever with the support we received. We have already recommended this property to friends and coworkers. Of course the island is the main attraction worth visiting and the scenery including the bridge made you wish you were there year round. We visited everything including the movie theater (only takes cash), mini golf (nice), Historic Mill Creek Discovery park (great hiking) and town (alot of nice little shops). We would go back to any of these places again. With alot of teenagers, we had a group that can be critical but all were happy with the choice.
