The cabin was excellent, a great vacation spot. It was clean, equipped w/ many extras (fans, games, water shoes, other misc things) and the water was clear. The lake had a mostly rocky bottom, but there were sandy spots in many places. It is mostly private-there are two houses next door but the layout makes it feel private. The fire pit is wonderful in the sand, not far from the water. The bathroom is very large which is great if the house is full-everyone's stuff can fit very easily. Also there are hooks to hang clothes in every room-I thought that was a great touch. There are two rooms upstairs w/ great breezes, and two downstairs. The living room is large and has an open concept into the kitchen/dining. Along w/ that the screened in porch has a large table w/ chairs and a couch for games on warmer nights. The tavern is very close, less than a 1/4 mile and Hawkes landing (the store/restaurant) is about 2 miles away. One thing of note-the store does not have many supplies. If you don't want to leave the island make sure not to forget anything. they have ice, ice cream, beer, snacks, milk, eggs and things like that-If you don't see it, ask someone at the counter. We wanted a specific beer and thought they did not have it, we asked and it turned out they had some in the back. They also have some movie rentals and souveners, and an analog gas pump that is expensive so get your gas on the mainland!
All in all, we could not have been happier w/ this cabin and our vacation there. It was hot and sunny, it was a white sandy beach, and the house was comfortable. I hope to go back there again in the near future for "The Caribbean in Michigan".
