Nice homebase to come back to

  • 5 of 5

Michelle was a great host. Although there was a hiccup in our booking, she solved the problem very fast and to our satisfaction. The property itself is a newer structure with a mix of rustic and new interior. The loft area of the home was really nice especially if mom and dad want a little separation time from the kids. We felt at home almost immediately and the home is stocked with the necessities you need. Since we arrived during a major heatwave , we were a little concerned about how the heat would affect us while sleeping since there is no air conditioning(at least that we noticed), but it was not a problem at all. Plenty of ceiling fans. While there we visited Mackinac Island, 1 hour away. Sleeping Bear Dunes and Traverse City, about 1-11/2 hours away. We ate dinners at several of the local restaurants and all were good. My son and I visited the county park about 1/2 mile away for a early evening swim. We did not make it to the State park on the other side of the lake, but it looked nice. It was a nice stay and I would come back.

Charming Cabin near Otsego Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this cabin for a week. We had a great time, the cabin was very clean and very well kept. The loft and living room gave it a great up north feel yet it also had a home feeling, very well decorated. It's less than a 5 minute walk to the County Park where we kept our boat and went swimming. The cabin provided everything we needed during our stay. We enjoyed bon fires out in the back, had plenty of room for our family and extended family to stop out to visit in the evening. The loft was great, the foosball table and other games kept us entertained during our stay. The only issue we had was not being able to use the wireless internet but being up north with Otsego Lake so close we kept quite busy swimming, fishing and boating! We have already recommended it to family and friends.

Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this spot. The cabin is brand new, immaculately clean and everything you need is there for you. Beds are super comfy, we slept amazingly well. Beautiful interior, outstanding views from the loft!!!!!! Although it's not right on the lake it is across a path and you can see the lake from the living area or walk a few hundred feet to a public access with a nice little beach. Very quite this time of year, stunning fall color and central to everything. We drove over to Petosky for the day which was only about 40 min, lot's of options for daytrips as well as close access to snowmobile trails in the winter. All in all a great trip!!!! We'll have to check it out in the summer as the lake is quite beautiful.
