Lakefront Loveliness with an Old Time Feel

  • 5 of 5

Romantic weekend for 2. We loved it! It's still a bit chilly in May, 50 degrees, but the privacy is so nice as other vacationers have not arrived to the area yet. We only saw 2 people in 3 days. Adorable wooded interior with oil heater; which I had never seen before and quickly fell in love with this amazing "heat box". Better than our fireplace at home. Well maintained and clean. Perfect closed-in porch facing the lake. Wonderful outside swing. Owner, Jim, is exceptionally nice and was even prepared for a lock out after just 5 minutes.

Plenty of yard on both sides of the house and additional deck on street side. Kudos on the solar landscape lighting. There's a firepit on the beach, but we did not utilize as the water was too close to the shoreline. A full time resident stated he had never seen the water so close to the shore before. #globalwarming. We were able to carefully walk along the beach for an enjoyable short distance. Star gazing at night, we were able to easily see Jupiter.

The bathroom, which is actually not centrally located in the house, but is accessed through the roadside porch entrance, is not able to be heated by the oil heater in the house, so it was really cold. This would not be a problem once the weather warmed up. My man, who is 6'2" had a hard time in the shower, due to the shower head being shorter than most. We laughed, it was part of the fun of being somewhere different.

We enjoyed the food at The Stone Lodge 10 mins down the main road. Be prepared to eat with dead animals on the wall x2.

Wish our schedules could have allowed us a longer stay. Thankful only a 2 night minimum, which seems hard to find. Definitely recommend.

Bring bathroom towels and soaps, and bedsheets.

Very Cozy Cottage! Fun for the whole Family!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the cottage during Father's Day Weekend of 2016. The water level was just right and shallow enough for our 2 year old to play safely. I would recommend water shoes because there are lots of rocks but still plenty of sandy beach to relax! We enjoyed the fire pit on the beach,and took out the row boat briefly. The cottage was well stocked with most everything you need. There was a rock someone had painted that said, " looks like all you need here is beer, firewood, sheets, and food" summed it up for us!! The beds were all very comfortable and the sun room was great! My parents are ready to go back next year!

It was neat, clean, and orderly. The backyard and beach area were set up for a great lake experienc

  • 4 of 5

The views of Lake Huron from the enclosed porch were fantastic. We enjoyed watching the frieghters both daytime and at night when they were brightly lit up. The brand new windows on the porch also brought the sounds of the waves for us to enjoy.

The cottage is furnished with everything people might need, games, tv, dvd, books etc, to enjoy a great time. The kitchen has everything needed to cook,

Since we had a short stay, we had almost 2 days of rain and wind so that we were not able to use the beach, but everything was there for relaxing and getting away from the city life.

Nice getaway!

  • 4 of 5

First of all, Jim was fantastic. Super accommodating and easy to work with. We booked just a couple of days in advance, and he made it very easy. The property is beautiful, and the house is really nice. Rustic enough, but with enough modern touches to it to make it comfortable. The beach was almost gone because the water is so high this year, and that's probably part of the reason the beach was so rocky too. I waded out about 200 feet, but had to waste a pair of shoes to do it, and it was much more sandy. You're pretty close to the neighbors on the one side, and to a small beach used by local public on the other, but sitting on the porch and staring out over the water, you wouldn't know it. If you're looking for a place that's immaculately clean and fancy, this isn't it. If you're looking for a really nice, rustic spot, just feet from Lake Huron, for a good price, you've found your place.

P.S. Let me know how long it takes you to find the bathroom. We had a good chuckle about this.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Jim was so awesome to work with, he made everything nice and easy for us. The house was clean and well stocked. The bedroom down stairs was perfect for my husband and I, our boys were upstairs the house was cool. Some friends of ours came up for one night and the house actually slept 9 and two dogs...and everyone was comfortable.

I loved that the house was so open and refreshingly calm, it was also so nice that my kids could play in the water and even from the house we could see them. My favorite was at night when the day was done and we enjoyed a fire on the beach!!! We will be back and were booking for next year before we were even packed to come home.

Excellent Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation here. The owners were so easy to work with and extremely friendly and accommodating. Their home was well stocked, and spotless, which was a huge relief!!

The water was very, very cold for this time of year, I'm thinking it was because of the horrible winter we had and the cool down in the evenings. You absolutely cannot beat the location...the sunrises were breathtaking!!

The only downfall to this vacation, was the chilly water, and the large rocks in the water. It was very difficult to walk without hitting one or two, but it was shallow very far out, which the kids enjoyed.

All in all we had a wonderful vacation and a great time! I would highly recommend this property and would recommend to friends/family!
