Exceptional! 5/5 -
(10 traveler reviews)

5 star modern home in town, very clean
average rating of 5.0 based on 10 reviews

The house was perfect for the four of us.

  • 5 of 5

The living was large, kitchen had everything that was needed. With two bathrooms the kids didn't have to line up.

The garage was a big plus with Mich, winters being what they are. We will stay at the same place again on our next ski trip.

This home is perfect. Made our stay so enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 7 days and loved this home and location. It had everything we needed including fishing poles. Wish we could have enjoyed water tubing as there were those too. The manager was most helpful and kind. Thanks for all the nice amenities! Very clean, updated and inviting. We will be back for sure!

Great location and property, amazing owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had family in town and not enough space at our nearby cottage. This cute, well-thought out vacation home gave us all a terrific place to gather. Close to the beach, downtown and it is so well-appointed, cozy yet roomy and comfortable. All of our guests loved it and so did we. The owners were so very kind and thoughtful. Thank you for making our time Up North so enjoyable.

Great place in a fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a wonderful home to rent! It has a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, washer and dryer and is very clean. It really is a "home away from home". It is in a great location just a block from the beach and a short drive to many other locations like Mackinaw. The owners were fabulous to deal with and were very prompt with all communication. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to renting again in the future.

Wonderful home, great value!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe we stayed in such a new home at such a fantastic price. This home is just as advertised, just renovated and all new. Can't wait to come back. The town and surronding area is very nice with lots to do.
