Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We (2 adults, 4 children ages 12, 9, 7 & 3) stayed at Uncle Frank's Cabin in the beginning of August. We rent frequently from VRBO and can say this is one of the those rare times you truly feel like you are truly staying in someone's home. The easy going, helpful and welcome nature of the owners was fantastic. The cabin itself, while certainly not luxurious, is comfortable and clean with beautiful views. The pictures on the listing do not do it justice.

We found the location to be private, while not secluded (out in the middle of nowhere). It was close to everything we wanted to do--Mackinac Island, Mackinaw City, tahquamenon falls, light houses, etc. It's within a reasonable day trip to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes and Traverse City, but not overly close. Fishing on the lake, of course, is also a great way to spend the day.

Note: While the cabin says it can sleep 6-8, we found it to be very tight, and that is with small children. There is not a lot of privacy either. I could talk to my kids who were in the bedroom while I was in the kitchen in normal voices. The table will only fit 4 in the kitchen, although you do have another table in the front room and a picnic table outside (no great in the rain). Only one person could really be in the kitchen while cooking. The bedrooms do not fit anything, but beds and storage was pretty little. We also had to plan bathroom use a bit, as hot water did not last more than two quick showers in a row. These are small things though and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again or recommend it.

I would definitely recommend this property to a friend and am hoping to go back again for another summer vacation. We had a great time! Kids were up early hoping to catch some fish and everyone was successful. The cabin was close enough we could make some day trips to Mackinac Island, Pictured Rock, Soo Locks, etc and do sight seeing but were home in time to enjoy a campfire for the evening. Plus it was a bonus that there happened to be a meteor shower going on while we were there and this was a perfect spot to watch! Thanks for sharing your place with us.

GREAT 25th ANNIVERSARY VACATION!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 13, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
My husband & I stayed at Uncle Frank's Cabin to celebrate our 25th anniversary. As we couldn't afford a honeymoon, this was the perfect place to stay. It was wonderful with the pontoon boat & the lake. We were on the pontoon everyday, him fishing & me relaxing reading books on my nook. The weather was a little more like fall weather, so we enjoyed the fireplace inside. It was very romantic. The cabin was very homey & comfortable. We both thought the bed was very comfy too! It had everything you would need. We were very impressed. I really liked the fact that there was a washer & dryer. I didn't have to take dirty clothes home! :) We have been up in that area before, so we didn't go to any of the touristy places. We just stayed at the cabin & enjoyed the peace & quiet. I would highly recommend Uncle Frank's Cabin. The owners left us a note & some very yummy fudge for our anniversary. I thought that was very nice of them & very unexpected but very much appreciated. I would have liked to stay another week but it was already booked. :( We will be back to stay again!!!!!!!!!!

We arrived about 4pm on Saturday.That evening we saw a couple of large cranes,a couple of deer,a loon,a number of mallards,a racoon and a porcupine! It is the perfect fisherman's cabin.My son is a special needs child and my goal was to get him on the pontoon boat and to teach him to fish. Alas, that did not pan out.My son, who is unpredictabe when it comes to travel, had a few good days and then needed to go home.We went to Mackinac Island and the locks and had great times.We never got to fish.However, I can't wait to get back to the cabin and try it again.Its the perfect location .The owners were very responsive and concerned that we had a good time.

Amazing Memories

We had an epic time during our stay at Uncle Frank's. There is not one bad thing that can be said. Frank and Sherry were extremely easy to talk with and very accessible when needed. The cabin has everything you need making it very comfortable as well as clean. My son and I had great time fishing every morning and night on the pontoon boat that was provided. We found the fishing to be spectacular and caught everything including bass, pike, pan fish, oh and yes a monster dog fish. The cabin's location is perfect, making day trips to Mackinaw City, Sault Ste Marie, Tahquamenon Falls, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Traverse City very easy and close. The bon-fires in the evening under the star blanketed sky were just simply amazing along with the sun sets. We will definitely be staying at Uncle Frank's again in the years to come. Thanks for the great memories Frank and Sherry.
