Little details make the whole (good :-)) difference!

  • 5 of 5

Visited the cottage for the 2017 Labor Day weekend. It's a bit far from where we live, BUT everything else is perfect: the location, the silence but the nature good relaxing noises, the coffee on the dock every morning, the stillness of the lake, the fact that there are no motor watercrafts allowed, the nice cabin interior and all the kitchen needs... I was pleasantly surprised that we found salt and pepper there, but most of all (:-)) that we found mashed potatoes masher(!), and the good quality silicone spatula- as I said: little details... that made the whole difference!

I hope all will be kept at the same high standards for our next trips!

Buckeye's in Wolverine country!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family had a wonderful time vising this area of MI. We were surprised at how far off the beaten path our lake house was located while driving to it. Once we arrived we didn't want to leave! The local business owners were helpful and always pleasant. Very convenient stay and we will be returning again. Only 45 minutes from the Western MI coastline which was a nice side trip. Thank you so much. Richard Smith and Family.

Relaxing, peaceful, and just perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage on Sauble Lake was just what our family was hoping for, and more! We were greeted by a vase of fresh wildflowers and a chilled bottle of wine. The cottage is back from the road and so very quiet. We saw deer and partridge in the yard almost daily. The house was comfortable and spacious for 5 people and 2 dogs. Kitchen was stocked with all the dishes and pans we needed. We loved the fire pit by the water. We fished daily off the dock and around the lake using the paddle boat. We caught many blue gills and bass. Our dogs loved the beach area and being able to swim daily. We brought our own kayaks and were able to kayak to all 4 of the connected Sauble Lakes. That's a fun adventure! We knew the first day we arrived that this cottage was perfect for our family and we would be back again. Can't wait to plan next summer's trip! Thank you, Rose, for always answering my questions so promptly and providing us with a wonderful vacation!

Incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do it justice. We loved our stay. The house is the most beautiful on the lake. Very quiet, relaxing, incredible view and fantastic fishing.

We couldn't be more happy with our stay and we are already talking about booking the home again.

Great secluded home.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our family for the week, because my kids love to be able to fish and swim from where we stay. This place was perfect for them and they spent many hours fishing, either from the boats provided or the dock. Even though the place is secluded it was not far from Lake MI, making it the perfect place to hang out between checking out the area. You could easily spend a portion of your day swimming or relaxing on a beautiful beach on Lake MI. Rose, the property manager was also a pleasure to work with, she even showed up after our phone calls kept being dropped, just so she could answer my questions. I would love to return.
