classic up north cabin with great views

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Blue Dog for a week in August 2011. The cabin was clean, comfortable and well decorated. It was well stocked with kitchen utensils and even had a charcoal grill. It has a great covered porch overlooking the lake with a swing along with a sundeck complete with lounge chairs.

The blue dog is a great place to relax and watch the sunsets. The owner is very helpfull and quick to answer questions. The beach is not great for walks or swimming-it has alot of vegatation/rocks and the swimming area had alot of algae (at least when we were there), so I would not say you can walk for miles. You can, however, bike along the tunnel of trees or canoe/kayak if you happen to bring one along.

We saw tons of wildlife, including a bald eagle. There is a great restaurant 7 miles away called Legs Inn that has waterfront-on bluff-dining. An excellent crepe food cart is only a mile away in front of the general store. There is a restaurant called the Fish which I had one of the worst meals I've seen in a restaurant-skip that one. The general store in good hart is famous for it's pies.

I would definitely recommend the blue dog for a relaxing vacation on the water with your dog-just don't expect too much from the beach.

Great Times in Good Hart at the Blue Dog

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Blue Dog 7/3-7/10/10 and had a GREAT time on the lake. The cabin was ideal for our family, and our Weimaraner, Sadie, had the dogcation of her lifetime. I've been spending time in northern Michigan for fifty years and the time spent at the Blue Dog was as memorable as any. We definitely will stay at the Blue Dog again and recommend the property to everyone. The lake, the forest, the tranquility of the time spent getting away from it all was exactly what we had anticipated.
