Why Amber chose Northern Michigan

We lived in Alpena for a few years and moved due to job transfer. We really enjoy the area and love the house so we decided to offer the house for rentals for others to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

One of the unique features of our property is the lot size, it's much larger than most lots on the lake so it offers more privacy. Also as the house was our primary residence and was completley renovated by us 7yrs ago you get to stay in a modern updated home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house looks great and the new landscaping is gorgeous. We absolutely love this place!

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was decorated very well with high end, custom appliances. The bed and linens were very comfortable. The weather didn't cooperate, so we were happy to have a beautiful cottage to stay warm in. Actually, this is more like a home than a cottage. We would not hesitate to stay there again when we are visiting the area.

Lake Home in Alpena

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here recently in July 2011, it was most excellent! Totally updated, clean and a beautiful view. I am not a big fan of swimming in lakes and this lake was delightful, no weeds at all! Nearby you can rent a boat or Jetski which was very convenient. The owner is extremely nice and helpful. We will be coming back.

Unbelievable sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Dear Mike & Amber ~ John and I would like to thank you for an absolutely incredible week in your place at the lake! We were extremely impressed with the home and you were right "the best view on the lake!" Our week was filled with great swimming, fishing, boating and more relaxation than we have experienced in years! We never once turned a TV on..... Your home is not your "average" rental - it is beautiful and equipment with wonderful "luxuries" you do not find every day! We can not wait to find the opportunity to rent again; maybe a fall or winter get-away! Thank you for sharing this fabulous place! John & Pam S
