Perfect family vacation !

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our family. The area was quiet and peaceful! We were able to get plenty of rest and relaxation. The kids were able to swim and kayak and fish. The cottage had wifi and the kids loved the ping pong :) We would love to return next summer!

Clean and comfy home on Big Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property several times. It is spacious, clean and recently updated. The location on Big Lake is very nice and now has a dock. We love the sandy beach for the kids to play on and to launch kayaks, and we caught lots of fish off the dock. Gaylord is only a short drive from the lake which is convenient. House is fully stocked with everything you could need...even a ping pong table! Can't wait to come back in the Fall to see the leaves change.

Owners are a joke

  • 1 of 5

We rented this home for one week. Propane tank was empty, oven did not work, siding was falling off of house, the neighbors on one side were yelling to their kids to use the bathroom in the lake, neighbors dog would come over and use the bathroom next to our house AND MONTHS AFTER RENTING OUR DEPOSIT STILL HAS NOT BEEN RETURNED! The house was big, clean, ping pong table was nice.

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a family summer get away! Very spacious and well maintained rental! Very clean and the amenities were perfect. Very quiet area. Beautiful small lake with not a lot of activity. Quite close to Traverse and Mackinac (about an hour each). We will certainly be back! Thank you so much for sharing your cottage with our family!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very nice and very spacious. Exactly as described by photos. We could really spread out. We had 6 in our group. It was clean and well maintained, with all the amenities of home. The ping pong table offers a chance for your competitive side to come out. The paddle boat is fun and adds to the lake experience. The owner was very helpful with all my questions and went above and beyond. When he found out the grill didn't work he brought us a new one! Wow! I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for tranquil lake side living. With many things near by. We found many restaurants, {Dianne's} was our favorite for Breakfast or Lunch. We also went to grayling to kayak, was so much fun. There are many things to do in town. We found beautiful trails where you can walk and spot Elk. We had great weather and enjoyed every minute.
