Perfect! - Very clean, cozy and quiet.

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for a week in September and would definitely stay here again. The house is tucked away right on the edge of a lake and is very clean and comfy. The view is spectacular. I especially liked looking up at the stars at night - something you can't really do in the city. Although I didn't use them, boats, kayaks, fishing poles were provided. Fred was great - very knowledgable about the entire state of MI and had lots of great info and suggestions on things to do. The city of Alpena is only a few minutes away so getting groceries is not a problem. The colors were just beginning to change, but I can imagine how spectacular it must look at the peak of the fall season. Great getaway - I highly recomment it!

Peaceful retreat on the lake

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Brothers Bay Point. The lake view was beautiful and the home is very quaint and nicely decorated. We docked our boat in front of the house and our grandson fished all week. Fred was helpful and extremely knowledgable about the area and offered great advise when we needed repairs on our boat. I would recommend this location to anyone looking for peace and quiet and good fishing.

Brothers Bay

  • 4 of 5
Stayed here Summer 2012. Perfect cottage, great view, docks for boats. Great drinking water, softened water, washer dryer were handy. Nice decor, pictures really do not due the view justice. The owner lives onsite, very friendly. Sandy beach, yes, I guess, technically. Not really a place you can place your lawn chair and let your kid frolic in the water, as the sandy beach is maybe 20 feet between two boat docks and once in the water it is rocky. Therefore, I would not recommend this for parents who want their kids to play on a sandy beach for a week. It worked for us because we went in to Alpena every day and had other things planned. We enjoyed ourselves.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5
We recentely stayed at Brothers bay point during Memorial weekend 2012. The photos showed a lake view from the livingroom and this was the deciding factor when we booked. I have to say from the moment we walked through the door we were impressed. There is a view of water from almost every window! I have never been to Alpena before and there wasn't too much going on...which was perfect! It was such a relaxing weekend. Fishing, bonfires, grilling and a whole lot of nothing. It rained one full day we were there but the owner, Fred, has pretty much thought of everything (books to read, games to play). We watched tv and played monoply that day and it happened to be one of the highlights of the weekend. I love this place and plan on returning.. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a relaxing getaway!!

Brothers Bay Point Country Lake Living

  • 5 of 5
This is a small Michigan country lake cottage that has been totally and tastefully renovated. The best part was being right on the lake, with access to the finest fishing hole in the area. We even caught fish right from the dock, although the owner has a boat that you can reasonably rent. (Get your fishing license on-line before you go.) If you don't catch your own dinner, one of the best restaurants in town is about a mile away, right on the water. You can also get there by boat! There's a country store nearby, too. We never went into the town the whole time we were there because it was just too nice to leave. We did spend part of one day touring the nearby lighthouses on Lake Huron. Plenty of space for three adults, couple, couple with 2 teenagers or family with small kids. However, the more people, the less living space. Would love to return in the future.
