Beautiful secluded Great Lakes house with quick access to all the Up North hot spots.

  • 4 of 5

Great house for a big family vacation. Sun, waves, beach games, bonfires and plenty of stars. Easy to get to, easy to connect with owners, and lots of space for everyone. I won't rave anymore, because I don't want too much competition for our stay next year!!

Terrific Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is awesome! 5 big bedrooms, 3 bathrooms which was so nice for our group of 9. Plenty of room and so very clean and comfortable. We all enjoyed the view and relaxing around the fire pit. I was lucky to get the second floor bedroom with the balcony. So peaceful sitting out there at night watching the water and listening to nature. The location is great so its not too far to Tahquamenon Falls, Soon Locks, St. Ignace, or Whitefish Point. We all had a great time and urge anyone looking for a clean, roomy, comfortable, beautiful place to spend time away from it all to give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Great week.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is comfortable and cozy. Kids loved swimming off the dock in Lake Huron and catching frogs in the creek next to the house. The kitchen is well equipped and home had plenty of room for all 8 us. Downtown Hessel is quaint and cute and the Les Cheneaux Cooking School was great for "date night" dinner. Thanks for sharing your cottage.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house! It was perfect with so much to do for little ones. (Ages 3-9) The kids caught frogs, played in the sand, explored the woods and swam off the end of the dock. The adults enjoyed the firepit, grilling and relaxing away from it all. Short drive to St. Ignace/the bridge. Day trip to Tahquamenon (which I recommend) Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and also hang out together. Overall a great vacation rental...highly recommend!

Heron, sunsets, and stars

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was very well equipped. We made buttermilk waffles in the waffle iron. The heron was around as if it lived at the home's dock. The home is perfectly situated for sunset viewing, has lovely decks, and night stars are fantastic. We enjoyed walking the quiet road with the dog. St. Ignace was a fun day trip.

Beautiful Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, comfortable, clean. The area is quiet and pristine. The sunsets are amazing! We traveled to the U.P. with our children and grandchildren (11 of us total) and had a wonderful time. We took a few day trips to Mackinac Island and the Tahquamenon Falls, but the best times were had sitting around the fire pit, playing in the sand, sharing meals and reconnecting. The kids brought their bikes and kayaks as there is abundant waterways and trails to explore. This is an absolutely awesome "home away from home" in a glorious natural setting.

on property

The home is located in the Upper Penninsula about a half hour East of the Mackinaw Bridge. The area is known for the Les Cheneaux Islands. The home is located in beautiful St. Matin's Bay and has direct views of the Mackinaw Bridge, Little St. Martins Island, Big St. Martins Island and Mackinaw Island. Some of the favorites for the tourist and the locals are visiting Mackinac Island, Mackinac City(shopping and water park), Hessel and the Les Cheneaux Islands by boat, Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie and hiking and biking in the nature trails. There are also many golf courses in the area. Hessel is also known for the Antique Wooden Boat Show in August. But I believe the best feature of the area for most is just relaxing and enjoying the water, scenery and serenity of the beautiful Upper Peninsula with family and friends.

Other Activities: Great trails and road for golf carts and/ or Atvs.

Golf: There are several golf courses located close by: Drummond Island, Hessel, Cedarville, Pickford and Sault Ste. Marie.
