The Irons Mansion was purchased in spring of 2007. I started managing my the the Irons property in 2009. As of 11/01/10 the management structure has changed and I have been more involved.

The Owner purchased this estate in 2007

The owners bought in Irons because of all the recreational activities around. They also liked that it is secluded and knew that many people like a private relaxing vacation.

Privacy to the max!! outdoors and nature, Lot's of indoor activities, comfortable bedding and accommodation and much more.

We walked into a filthy house. The ‘cleaning crew’ had not been there. The toilets had not been cleaned, or even flushed in at least one disgusting case. The dirty linens were still on the unmade beds. Bath towels were on the floor. We spent our first 6 hours washing bed linens and bath linens, cleaning toilets and sinks and floors. We were told the cleaning crew was indisposed, but they never showed up at all. There were dozens of trash bags in the attached garage and they were ripe. When we complained, someone came and moved the trash from the attached garage to the unattached garage, 50 yards away. The trash was never carried off the property. We arrived in mid-August and there were used 4th of July fireworks still in the trash pile. The disposal in the kitchen sink was stopped up, smelly and full because the motor is burned up. The display for the kitchen stove is still broken (see reviews from Summer 2011). The stove works, but not the display. Don’t lean on the kitchen island or you might push it out of place because it isn’t anchored to the floor. The garage door motor is still burned out (again, see earlier reviews of previous users). The pool-side Jacuzzi was green and only about three-quarters full. There are holes in the walls throughout the house. There is a light fixture hanging from the wires in the master bathroom. There are TVs in several rooms, but apparently the management only pays for one satellite subscription, as the other receivers are (still) not ‘authorized.’ The shower enclosure in the master bath is the smallest, flimsiest, cheapest enclosure available at Home Depot/Lowes, and that’s pretty much the recipe for the entire house. The plumbing fixtures don’t even have brand names on them, they’re so cheap. The white carpets are (still) stained in every room; and not just little spots, big huge stains. The dining room chairs are stained and dirty also. The thresholds between wooden floors are (still) missing in numerous cases, covered by old rugs. The broken window that we were told was fixed is still not replaced. The house is (still) full of burned-out light bulbs. The wood frame for the front door is rotting. The light fixtures outside the main entrance don’t work at all. The front door knob is about to come off in your hand. The doorbell consists of wires sticking out of the exterior wall. There are speakers in many rooms, but what looks like an attempt at a sound-switching system must have been designe

This house was amazing, our group of 16 had an amazing time with all the amenties this house had to offer. I had read a few reviews that concerned me, but understood that new rental management has taken control of the property. It was all we had hoped to be, and are looking forward to staying again this Winter !! Highly recommended.

Incredible Anticipation Turns to Enormous Disappointment

I provide an overall rating of "Poor", only because a lower rating wasn't available.

We recently booked a stay at the "Irons Mansion". The greeting we received upon arrival was provided by countless flies, spiders and other insects (dead and alive). The dishes in the sick were a surprise. Food and food wrappers on the floor in several rooms also provided much disappointment.
Old, stained carpet throughout this property were accented by a deep, musty odor.

The pictures that advertise this property were certainly taken at this property. Unfortunately, the pictures were taken some time ago - back when someone actually cared about the property. Now, it seems clear that the owner and manager have turned their back on this property and don't care that it is falling apart. In addition to the buildup of filth, the first window you see as you drive in is broken, and has seemingly been broken for some time.

Before writing this review, the manager and/or owner were provided with an opportunity to make things right. Their answer was simple - "We've got your money! Too bad for you!" I am not submitting this review in an effort to force them to change their mind. They have made it clear that they will not change their mind, and I take them at their word.

The purpose of this review is simple. I do not want others to have the same experience. Three families were coming from three different states to stay together at this beautiful place. We paid for the place, but couldn't even stay!

When we finally found a place to stay, and sheepishly told our story (without mentioning the name of the property), two different people said....."Oh, you must have been booked at the Irons Mansion!" And, they laughed. Apparently, northern Michigan knows that the place is a JOKE.

No one should ever rent this property! There are so many beautiful properties out there. Do not waste your time on this one!!!
