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
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.
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.
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.
Wonderful experience! From working with the owners for a last minute trip, to the cute, clean cottage, to the wonderful area, the whole trip was a success! Thank you to the owners- you have a great place! Peaceful, quiet, relaxing.....perfect.
My wife and I stayed here for 2 weeks and loved it. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. We took several day trips to neighboring towns and found the cabin location to be ideal. We especially enjoyed the mornings sitting on the front deck drinking our coffee. The owners were especially nice and easy to deal with.
We just returned from our third visit this year. What a great place! The home is clean and comfortable with every amenity that you need. The owners are very accommodating. Our family loves the access to the miles and miles of ORV trails. We also have taken day trips to Mackinac and Alpena. We highly recommend this home for your getaway.
The cabin was wonderful! Extremely clean and updated. Linens, towels, paper products, everything was included which was nice not having to bring everything. The owners were amazing to deal with. Very helpful and detailed in explaining everything you needed to know about your trip. We brought our ATV's and could ride from the cabin to the trails. (Great trail system!) We will definitely stay there again!!!!
We had a great time at the cottage. The boys had fun taking out all the boats, and although we never saw a fish or even had a nibble, we had a good time fishing. The cottage has everything you need. We had a great campfire with smores, enjoyed the barbeque, and even watched a few of their classic movies. Everything was clean and fresh, and even the wife was impressed that I had made a good choice. LOL
The location is central to many norther MI destinations and we made day trips to Petoskey, Mackinaw, and Roger City/Alpena.
