Another great vacation

  • 4 of 5

This is the 4th year in a row that we have rented this cottage. It is a great location and one of the few rentals that allows dogs. We love it here! I would give it 5 stars if it had air conditioning; it got a little hot inside the cabin this year but not too bad. We are already looking forward to next year!

Owner's Response: Hi Jeff, You know it is rare that we actually need air conditioning but yes, this summer is a scorcher One of the reasons we do not have it is with all the comings and goings and doors being left open all that coolness would go right into the atmosphere. however we do hope to have a couple ceiling fans by your stay next year. Glad you had such great weather and had a blast.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived by boat, from Oden, seven of us, and were delighted that the home was fully ready for us. Lots of room, lots of utensils, pots, pans, spices, chairs, games, sofas, all as advertised - even a tv (who watches tv on vacation?). Noted that the place is being remodeled here and there, but that didn't interfere with us enjoying it, at all. Lots of wood to burn for smores, big Adirondack chairs, ...and the loons fishing near our dock couldn't have been more perfect. Even the neighbors were happy to point us to the nearest bar-by-water! Louise was quick to communicate with us too. It's truly in the wilderness - It's the seventh house from the end of the road. Thanks, Hopsons.

Owner's Response: We're so happy you had a great time and enjoyed the cottage! The little remodeling project is going to include an enlarged walk-in shower all done in sliced and polished Petoskey stones along with the bathroom floor. It will look quite different next summer! Thank You!

Love, love, love Mullett lake!!!

  • 4 of 5

This was such a great vacation, it won't be our last at this cottage. Very spacious living quarters with nice updates. Swimming area was great. Neighbors were really awesome. This side of the lake is nice and quiet. So nice that we could bring our dog with us! Nice sandy bottomed lake for swimming. There was ample seating for everybody in the livingroom, kitchen and around the fire pit.

Laid back week at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week at Mullet Lake - what a great time! The cottage is located on the calm side of the lake which was wonderful! The owners put in new living room furniture - comfortable leather chairs and sofas as well a new adirondack chairs in the back. The kitchen was a good size and had everything we needed. The cottage was great for what we needed - comfortable accomodations (beds were comfortable) and pet friendly. We brought our 5 yr old black lab and he had a great time jumping off the dock or diving for rocks (with his mouth) in the lake. The pictures on this website are true to what you will get (except the living room furniture has been updated). The cottage definitely met our needs and we would rent again! Since there are only a few tv channels available (no cable), make sure you bring movies for any down time you may have if you want to watch tv....we had perfect weather all week and spent all of our time outside - so very little tv. Our Iphones worked great at the cottage...

Family Get-Away

  • 4 of 5

It’s been our family get away for over 7 years and we have enjoyed each and every year. Our days are filled with slow moving mornings, active afternoons, and relaxing evenings. The accommodations met our needs - simple, roomy, clean, and affordable. The cottage has a beautiful fieldstone fireplace and a picture window that looks out across the lake. Early in the morning I will sit with a cup of coffee, watching through the picture window in the living room the sunrise over the lake- it’s simply beautiful. During the day we spend most of our time outside swimming, water skiing, kayaking, fishing, bike riding, long walks, reading lazily by the water, or sitting by the camp fire enjoying conversation and cocktails. If it’s raining we’ll watch movies, play cards or games around the big table or head into town to go shopping. At night you are serenaded by the loons and the water as it laps up against the shoreline – it’s this memory of the loons and the water that stays with me, brings a smile to my face, and brings me back each year.

Beautiful location, less than desirable cottage

  • 3 of 5

The lake, location and weather were spectacular on our vacation, but the cottage was not what we expected. The lake is shallow and perfect for kids.

The cottage definitely needs cleaning - not just surface cleaning, but deep cleaning from top to bottom. Furniture could use some updating - existing furniture on the screened in porch is broken and should be thrown out - we couldn't sit in it.

We loved the firepit and used it daily, but there were only 4 chairs, one of which was broken. Nicer adirondack chairs would have been heavenly - even new plastic ones would have been perfect. If a house sleeps 8-9, we thought there should be seating at the fire for that many.

We loved our week at Mullett Lake, but if the weather hadn't been gorgeous, staying in the cottage during the day would have been tough.

Owner's Response: I'm happy to say that since 2011 we have had different people cleaning who have been doing a much more thorough job between renters. We have done major upgrades to the house including a huge lakeside deck, new large boat hoists, one with an electric lift, two new leather sofas and two new leather chairs in the living room and there is no broken furniture!
