Serene Up North Setting

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoys the nearby activities including the Deer Ranch and Mystery Spot (ziplines and mini golf). Close proximity to the island ferries. The upper balcony has stunning views of Lake MI. Tall wooden gate and fence in the front is a nice touch for privacy and added comfort so our younger kids could explore more. I definitely recommend this home. Nice decor, always nice and clean. We have stayed here 3x over the last 5 years.

Very good central base for UP exploration

  • 4 of 5

My husband and three kids enjoyed staying here. We went to Mackinac Island for a day trip. Although the weather didn't cooperate all week, we enjoyed one day by the beach. Tahquamenon Falls State Park was also a fun excursion for the day. Peaceful setting. The water was a bit chilly but still fun to wade along the lakeshore. You can go out several hundred feet in knee/waist deep water, comfortable sand beneath your feet. Decent yard with grass for playing outdoor games.

Wonderful stay at this lakefront house!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this home for a Mackinac area getaway. The interior is maintained very well. Love the higher ceiling in the master bedroom with separate small balcony. Our kids loved the adjoining balcony for the smaller bedrooms. It really hits that "sweet spot" -- five minute drive to St. Ignace and the ferries to the Island, but far enough to provide a private wooded setting. Our kids really enjoyed the large sandy beach area for swimming and playing games. Highly recommended!!

Picture perfect upper peninsula setting

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming here for a retreat with my mom and siblings as a summer tradition since we no longer live in the area. Gary is a gracious host. Spectacular lake property...private yet close to St. Ignace convenience stores. I've shared my thoughts in the home's lakehouse journal for many years...I'm glad to share a positive review here. This home has a hard to find combination of modern design and accessible sandy beach.

always a relaxing stay at this lake property...

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this home for many summer vacations through the years. I enjoyed it in the fall last year. We are excited to return this summer. The lake views from the all the bedrooms are very relaxing. What a sunset over St. Helena Island! To us it is the best of both worlds. Enjoy Mackinac Island for a couple of day trips..and then return to the lakefront here. It really is fun to walk out far in knee deep water (truly a huge sand bar) sandcastles with the kids...and then relax on the large deck. Our kids love the ziplines at Mystery Spot. Nice view of the Mighty Mac and lake along the course! Gary is a wonderful host. Highly recommend this home

Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week touring the UP while staying in this beautiful lake home. Everyone in our family including two granddaughters ages 3 and 7 absolutely loved everything about this house. The beach is sandy and the little ones can go out a long way. It is fun to watch big freighters going by and we all enjoyed the camp fire pit. The house is so well equipped and decorated so nicely. We were close to all the tourist attractions. We visited Mackinac Island, the Huron Boardwalk in St. Ignace, Tehquamenon Falls, a beautiful beach just up the road a few miles, the Deer Farm, Soo Locks, and Mackinaw City across the Big Mac bridge. While we love our day trips, it was always nice to return to our home away from home. We appreciated how helpful Gary, the owner was. We hope to return again someday and I would definitely recommend this home to others.
