Fantastic, lots of space, beautiful view on a quiet lake
Our family of 7 rented the cottage for the week. We had a wonderful time, and never felt like there were 7 of us under one roof. It was great that everyone had their own rooms, never had to wait for a bathroom, TV was a plus for those Big Brother fans, and the boat was the best addition. We must have easily caught 500 panfish, and even 1 nice pike. None of which we kept, it was just for the sport, and bragging rights.
Loved the upper deck, listening to the loons, and had something grilled almost every day. And with so much lawn furniture, there was never a shortage of seats in the sun.
The fire pit convienence was great, who could beat a pit right outside the door and down the stairs. My 17year old spent many an hour tending the fire that he insisted we needed to have, and of course we sat around and enjoyed.
The amount of birds in the trees around us, make you feel like your in the middle of the woods. Even had a family of woodpeckers, to watch, as baby learned to imitate Mom.
Your place was easy to find, and no more than an hour from any of the attractions we wanted to see. We spent the day in Mackinaw City, headed to Bellaire for beer tasting at Shorts Brewery, went zip lining at Old Mill Creek, checked out the sinkholes south of Onaway, and Ocqueoc Falls to the east of Onaway. (BTW, bring your bathing suit, it's a great place to cool off on a hot day in the whirlpool) Plus a trip down to Hartwick Pines.
Definitely loved all the kitchen supplies, it made cooking for a larger family easy. And having a dishwasher was sure a plus. It saved us from a lot of hand washing.
Thank you again for letting us rent your lovely cottage. It was a fantastic and way to short week of vacation.
