About Scott Johnson

My wife and I both grew up in southern,Michigan. We have 7 lovely children. We have enjoyed many vacations up at the 'Johnson's Lodge'. We are sure you will make many memories yourselves with your family and friends.

Scott Johnson purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Scott Johnson chose Northern Michigan

I have belonged to a hunting camp in the area since I was 18 years old. I have always loved the surroundings, so I purchased the property in 1999 and completely renovated the entire home. We have renovated the home with all of the amenities of a year round home. We use it all seasons.

What makes this cottage unique

You can't beat the beautiful, scenic views out both the front and back door. We both work full time and love to go up north and forget everything and just enjoy the natural surroundings. It is very peaceful and quiet. Our children and us all enjoy fishing both off the dock, and on the lake. (the back pond also) We also enjoy swimming, going for walks, and just sitting out on the deck, watching for the Bald Eagle to land on a nearby tree at the point and listen for the call of the Loons. Very relaxing! If you like to go to town, there is nearby Hillman, with a lot of unique buildings and a nostalgic bridge with an adjacent park. Also, the beautiful town of Alpena is close by with a lot of cute shops, and unique restaurants. And of course, Makinaw City and Island are just an hour North. Ocqueoc Falls and the 'sink holes' are our favorite spots. You can be as busy or as relaxed as you want to be.

This is a great place

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice cabin to get away and relax. The kids enjoyed swimming in the lake and using the canoe and paddle boat. Everything was very clean and Scott was very helpful if we needed anything. The kitchen was well equiped with all the utensils we needed to cook our meals. Grocery store was about 10 miles away which was a pretty trip. It was close enough to Alpena (went on the glass bottom boat shipwreck tour) and only about an hour from Mackinaw City where you can catch a ferry to Mackinac Island. We had a wonderful time staying here. Thank you!!

Clean, quiet, well stocked

Scott's place is as advertised. Cottage had everything we needed and was spotless. It was a great location for my friends and family who joined me in a once in a lifetime Michigan Elk hunt. Thanks Scott for a memorable experience that your cottage played a big part in.
