Overview

Northern Michigan Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Experience Lake Michigan like you have never before at this quaint cabin tucked in the woods on miles of pristine Lake Michigan. Imagine waking up in the morning to the sound of Lake Michigan, the call of birds, fresh clean air... ahhh the good life. Good Morning Arcadia is small but offers cozy lodging. Very quiet and private location. Some stairs up to main level of house. Faces west for breathtaking sunsets. 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Allows up to 5 people. Saturday-Saturday in the prime summer months.

Both bedrooms have queen beds. 1 air mattress. 1 bathroom. Full kitchen (no dishwasher). 1 of the bedrooms boasts a sliding door to deck for great views and the sound of the lake. Cable HD flat panel TV/DVD/WIFI. Washer/Dryer in lower level. Sheets and towels provided. If the weather is a little too warm, there are fans for each room. Typically the breeze off of Lake Michigan can keep you cool and comfortable.

Big deck off the living room with stunning views of the lake. Enjoy outdoor grilling on charcoal grill.

The sunsets here are amazing and not to be missed. The sand on this beach is pristine. If you love golf, Arcadia Bluffs is just 3.5 miles away. Nature trails,dunes and an amazing scenic overlook are close by too. Make sure to explore the quaint towns of Arcadia, Frankfort, and Onekama. Beautiful drive north on M-22 to reach the Sleeping Bear Dunes. You will not be disappointed.

This is a Saturday - Saturday rental for prime summer weeks. Short stays available off peak.

Reviewer Comments:

The Good Morning Arcadia cottage was only "ok". I had read previous reviews that the cottage needed some updates including the furnishings. But, I wasn't quite prepared for the 50's-60's garage sale decor. The cottage was relatively clean but the furnishings were VERY dated. Our biggest disappointment was the "beach". Can't really call it a beach because you would have to jump off a 5 foot cliff to get down to about a 2 foot section of sand. Due to erosion there really is no beach. The picture of the beach on the site is VERY misleading. If you are planning on a walk on the beach or sitting by the surf, think again. Are the sunsets beautiful, of course. But, you will have to watch them from the deck of the cottage. Oh, and you might bring a table for the deck if you want to sit outside to eat or play games. The only thing available are a couple of chairs. Weird, a big wrap around deck but no table and only a couple of chairs. Weird. We paid a lot of money for the sunset. We could have stayed at a nice hotel with room service and housekeeping for the price. I think that's what we will do next time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The lake levels on Lake Michigan were very high in 2015. This was something we could not have known until it happened. You do have to walk on a low dune on a path to the water but that has not really been much of an issue since this home has been rented. We will be adding a outdoor table in 2016. There were several dining trays available at the cottage as well as 6 chairs. The cottage is eclectic for sure and there is a mix of old and new. We see it as part of the charm. If we were made aware that there were issues at the rental we would have done our best to make your experience better where possible. We really are sorry that you were not happy at Good Morning Arcadia.

My husband and I along with our dog spent a delightful week in this cottage. We found it very clean and comfortable. We loved watching the beautiful sunsets from the deck every night and the short walk down to the beach was great!

Reviewer Comments:

We were welcomed by bags of garbage left by previous guests and not removed by property mgt. company. The entrance door screen was ripped wide open and there was dog fur all over the furniture. This is a lovely spot, however putting out clean towels and sheets does not maintain the property. The beach is not as pictured online. Lake levels have made the beach dissappear. Mother nature cannot be helped but pictures need to be updated and rate of $2000/week is no longer worthwhile. When I reported the garbage situation, it was not picked up until the 4th day of our stay. Unacceptable!

Owner's Response: WE are sorry for the lack of attention to your rental.. We only have garbage pick up once per week so there can be garbage at the house. The spline had come out of the storm door window and has been repaired. The lake level was very high in 2015 and did change the shoreline. We are seeing lake levels going down again in 2016 so this will allow for more sand. We have corrected issues at Good Morning Arcadia for a more pleasant experience in the future.

Reviewer Comments:

This cottage was everything we were looking for. It had a stunning view, was perfectly cozy for our little family of four and had all the amenities you would expect from a seasonal cottage. Being able to walk 50 yards to the beach was great, and we were able to include our dog, which was a bonus. For the value, you won't find a better view in northern Michigan.
