Away from it all yet minutes from everything

I've been coming to this area for 40-some years and EaglePine has the perfect location. Long Lake is serene and filled with wildlife. Though secluded in the woods, EaglePine is only a quick walk to the north shore where you can bask in the morning light and watch the beautiful Michigan sun go down.
The property has everything you need and for those few housekeeping items they don't the Owner's do an excellent job of communicating to you ahead of your arrival.
The feeling you get when you stay here is exactly what you hope for for a family vacation. The place is obviously well loved and enjoyed by the Owners. It's perfect place for a young family to run around and explore. Our baby turned 20 mos during our stay and he learned so many new words during our week. Each morning he would get his shoes and say 'hike big water' and head to the door. He loved the path and boardwalk to the beach and trying the kayaks and sand toys and collecting sticks to make a fort like the boys had. His room was cozy and filled with woodland friends (stuffed animals) to keep him company at night. The loft area game room had enough new things to explore that it kept him busy everyday. We didn't need to pack any toys.
My husband and I enjoyed the horse shoes, hammock, fire pit and tiered deck (and I enjoyed the outdoor shower).
When we wanted to get out for the day for a hike at the Old Indian Trail, groceries in Frankfort or run up to Sleeping Bear dunes it was an easy quick drive.
EaglePine is obviously a wonderful place for young families but my husband and I kept saying how romantic it would be to come here again as a couple. There really is something for everyone here.
The rental rate is a wonderful value when you consider the amenities, location and the positive experience of dealing with the Owners.
We hope so much to be back. As I write this in mid-September, I'm not surprised to see they are already filling dates for next summer.
You won't be disappointed.
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: It brings great joy to us when other famlies enjoy EaglePine as we do. If we can not be there we would prefer others to enjoy it. I personally find satisfaction in attending to the details of creating a get-away experience that is unique in regards to comfort and adventure. I strive to make each vacation as "easy" as possible. I am very happy that it was all you had hoped for!
