Love this place

  • 5 of 5

After being away for 2 years due to medical problems, going back to this cottage was on my husband's bucket list. It felt like coming home to a peaceful retreat. Even our little dog did his happy dance as soon as he got out of the car and realized where he was! This is the ideal place for enjoying a beautiful clear lake, many wonderful bike trails, and leisurely walks around the neighborhood. The neighbors in the area are welcoming, especially when they find out you're at the Stempky's place. Nancy and Andy are the perfect people to rent from, making your stay very enjoyable. For the women, don't worry the kitchen has everything you'll need. God willing, we'll be back again next year hopefully with our daughter, son-in-law and two grandkids who we can't wait to share this fun time with.

Diamond in the rough

  • 5 of 5

all I can say is, this place was way better than anticipated. We have rented several places over the years, but this is the only one I have considered renting over again. The cabin was very spacious, the lake had an excellent swimming area, there was hot water every day for all 7 of us, and the owners were incredible to deal with. There was a huge yard that allowed us to set up croquet and a bocce ball area, and the rowing boat that was included was used daily for fishing. Having Cheboygan 20 minutes away was nice cause the setting was peaceful and serene for the cabin. The only thing that would have been better would have been the weather. There was just one tree that blocked a perfect view of the lake, but the tree also offered privacy from the homes across the lake. Thank you to the owners for allowing us a perfect vacation, looking forward to future years vacations.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the cottage in July 2015. It was very clean and comfortable. Everything you would need for a great up north week is included; really nice lake, a non busy road to walk and bike, good restaurants and the Cheboygan Brewery are close by. The owners were super accommodating. Definitely returning next year.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We (my wife, three boys and I) stayed here for the July 4th week of 2014 and had a wonderful time. The cottage was very clean and well kept. The bathroom was clean with plenty of hot water and great pressure. Windows are on all sides of the cabin creating a nice cross breeze inside. No musty "cabin" smell which was a plus. Plenty of room inside and outside the cabin. The city of Cheboygan is close (10 mi) and the Bridge was only 25 miles away. The lake is clean and clear with a hard pebble bottom around the dock which was perfect for our kids. The shoreline has a gentle slope by the dock which was enjoyable for my 4 year old because it did not get too deep too fast. We enjoyed watching the Loons from the dock and fires in the evenings. We would come here again.

Relaxing Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our week at the cottage. It was clean and comfortable. The floor plan was great---plenty of room to spread out. The property was sunny and private. There is a lovely deck to watch the action on the lake. It seemed to be a quiet end of Long Lake---mostly pontoons. I think the jet skis must stay on the larger part of the lake. We made use of the grill and the fire pit. Nice sandy bottom lake. It was about 15-20 min to Cheboygan---shopping, dining and a movie theater. Used the library for internet access, but could sometimes get 3G at the cottage. Took maybe another 15-20 min to get to Mackinaw City. We were looking for a comfortable, homey place to relax and get away from it all. Would stay again and recommend to others. 5 stars for sure!!
