Guestbook comments from the owner

I just recently rented this cabin for a weekend away with my boyfriend. The reviews must have caught the owners eye because all that was said about the cleanliness was not true. The fridge was empty and clean. The oven was old but clean. The furnishings were clean and in good condition and no stains were spotted. The beds were held up by frames, no firewood was used. Closets were stocked with extra blankets and pillows. There were new towels with the tags still on. There were also wine glasses, drinking glasses, and beer mugs. The plates and bowls were probably new too because they were colorful and matching. There was no mold anywhere to be found. Though there was no grilling because it was negative 20 degrees, I did spot a gas grill outdoors on the back porch. The bar across the street was actually really fun. The town has some friendly people. We had a great time and will return again. Thanks Dennis for the late notice booking.

Great little cottage in a nice little town!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to vacation! The cottage was well stocked with everything you would need!, It had a small rowboat with an electric motor for tooling around the lake, just had to be careful not to run around too much as we ended up rowing back! :). Plenty of dishes and cookware, a new gas grill and new vacuum made things very convenient! Enough towels for a small army. There is music in the park every Wed. afternoon, little store right across the street, bait & tackle store a block away and great fishing! Looking forward very much to returning next year!

loved it

  • 4 of 5

This was our second visit for the summer. The first visit was nice but could have used a few updates to the dishes and there were ants in kitchen. The previous group had these concerns and while we were there the owner had someone take care of thsee issues. The second visit was wonderful. Not a complaint from me. Improvements were done like a new vacuum, table/chairs, new pans and utensils. Thanks you... was a great vacation for us. Will be back again.

Weekend fishing trip

  • 3 of 5

This cabin was average but could have been good with some small improvements. There was no Kitchen table and chairs. So we had to eat sitting on the couch. Not enough linens for drying dishes and only 2 bath towels. Also the skillets were very thin with bad handles and only one bowl. So more pots and pans are needed for cooking. Just a small issue with tiny ants. Nothing a little bug spray wouldn't fix. Also just a little more cleaning under the sinks and cupboards. The vacuum sweeper also didn't work well. So just small things that could be fixed easily. The futon also wouldn't sit upright all the way. The small grocery store across the street was very convenient. The bar was no issue at all on our weekend. It has a great view of the lake and the cedar walls gave the place a nice feel and look. Boat launch 2 blocks away for south and big Manistique lakes. Ice cream store, and other gift shops all in walking distance. So a nice place in town on the lake. Just some minor improvements needed.

Owner's Response: I appreciate this review. I had taken 8 new bath towel sets up there last year but if they are disappearing, I will send more up there right away. I also stocked the cupboards with new glasses, bowels and other dishes but I went shopping today to send up more cooking utensis bowels etc. because I haven't been there personally in a year and want to make sure that there is no shortage of anything anyone needs. There were adequate dishes there but I am sending more up with the towels and some ant spray as well. The futon will never sit up straight because it is designed to have the 20 degree recline to the back. Some people like the way it sits and others don't, but I can't change it's design. As far as a kitchen table goes, I never thought it was necessary because of the breakfast bar and stools but perhaps a folding table and chairs would be a good addiion and I will have someone up there pick one up for me as well as a new vacuum if the one up there is having a problem, (I just put that up there brand new last year but will buy another one if need be). Like I said, I do appreciate this feedback Nick because other guests have been there ahead of you and didn't make me aware of anything they had any concerns about.

Car: recommended

This property is located in the heart of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It's a great central area to see many of the UP's attractions. Great as a hunting camp, located near trail heads for snowmobiling, and is right on the lake for swimming, boating, and fishing.
