Quiet, clean, and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our August getaway at Waterways Cottage. Donna was a great hostess and offered information on many different places to see and go during our visit. The campfires with s'mores, the visits to the water in front of her home, the quiet surroundings, and the privacy made this a wonderful break from the city. We appreciated a clean cottage including everything we needed for our time away except towels and laundry soap. Spent a lot of time at the local beach and 19 miles away from Mackinac Bridge - nice location! Thank you for your generosity and warmth during our visit - we appreciated it very much!

Great Place to Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do it justice. The wraparound porch is large enough for a table and chairs and multiple lounge chairs. Very private, lots of room and everything you need is already there! Enjoyed the privacy and wooded setting, and my grandkids loved using the paddle boat and kayaks. There is even a nice fire pit with chairs around it. The landlady is very nice and right next door, if you need anything. Overall, a great time at a very good price!

Great Get Away Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cottage. Owner was extremely gracious and accommodating. Good location and very accessible to many things. Location of cottage is very private. The wraparound patio was very nice for sitting out even during the rain. The fireplace (gas log) was really nice and made the cottage warm & comfy on more than one occasion. Overall, an excellent value.

Honeymoon cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our honeymoon and had a great time! The cottage is beautiful, has just about everything you need....all you need is your towels & groceries and is very clean, maintained!! The surrounding area is very scenic...close to state parks, Macinaw City is close, saw salmon jumping out of the water at the dam. You can do as little as you like, or find plenty to do nearby.

Donna is a great resource for what is in the area and has great recommendations.

We are talking about going back next time with family. Very spacious for 2 people, plenty of room for a group of 6 -8.

Hope to come back next time with a boat to explore more! Highly recommend a stay here!

Secluded Gem

  • 5 of 5

My Mother and I recently stayed here and were so relieved that it is as described and kept up very well! The cottage is better than pictured .Plenty of room for us and my Grandmother.The Bathroom handy to the master bedroom was a real plus for her since grabbing onto walls keeps her steady.Our visitors as well thought the place was real nice. The land lady Donna is extra nice and informative..She is like an old friend though you haven't met before. Her grandson was extra helpful in jumping my car when the Garmin drained my battery.. So glad he heard me knock since we had no one to available to help . The loft was plenty big enough for adults as well as children..Twin bed on one side of the divide and full on the other. Beds are comfortable too! Washer and Dryer is very handy and we were so glad to not have to eat out everyday since the kitchen was fully equipped!! Definately will return again...maybe when we can use the Pontoon!

Beautiful cabin in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week in September for our Honeymoon. The cabin was incredibly clean and the location was great for sightseeing - very close to Macinaw City and Macinaw Island, and there are many state parks near by (the beach in Cheboygan State Park seemed to be the nicest).

The cabin has one bedroom on the main floor and 2 beds in the loft area. Donna is very helpful in providing information about the area. The supermarket is less than 10 minutes away. The TV was great, but the wireless internet signal was a little weak (Donna's going to work on improving it.)

We wish we had had a boat! Mullett lake is beautiful, as are the rivers around it, and there's a lot of water to explore.

On the Cheboygan River south of Straits Of Mackinaw near Mullett Lake...

The Inland Water Way can be navigated nearly sixty miles from the mouth of the Cheboygan River through Mullett and Burt Lakes south to Crooked Lake near Petoskey...Or, from the north end of the river to Mackinac Island and Mackinac City, and on through the Great Lakes...

Keep in mind Spring Fishing Season...and...Fall Color Tours...Mackinaw City and Island Attractions....
