Nice quiet and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here where we were close to the grandkids. I just wish we could have had wifi or better cell reception. Overall it was nice.

Fishing cabin on a pretty channel leading out to lake Mitchell.

  • 2 of 5

First I want to say that Dewayne was wonderful to work with. He responded very quickly to questions we had prior to our stay. He called us during our stay to make sure everything was going ok, and he was very prompt in returning our security deposit after we checked out. The cabin we rented, however, was not what we anticipated. We knew it was going to be small by the description and pictures, but although it was listed as suitable up to 6 people, It was awfully tight quarters for the 6 of us. I guess the pictures looked like there was more room than there really is. The cabin would be ideal for a couple of fishermen wanting to have access to the lakes, but was not a family vacation type of place. The channel out back was very pretty and our teenagers enjoyed fishing off the docks, catching lots of small blue gill every evening. Though the cabin was not what we had hoped it would be, we made the best of it and we really do appreciate Dewayne's attentiveness.

Great place for skiing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for 3 nights with my wife and 2 children. We had enjoyed skiing everyday at Caberfae Peaks which was located 15 minutes from the cottage. Caberfae Peaks has good deals for lift tickets. Don't buy at the ticket counter but get 30-40% discounts at online ticketing.

Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed : utensils, stove, oven, microwave, coffeemaker, etc.

You need to bring your linens.

Internet and cable TV are not available.

Tons of VHS movies was on a shelf.

Beds were comfortable. My daughter liked the futon bed in the living room.

We had to do cleaning by ourselves on check-out, but the price was really worth it.

The vacuum didn't work very well, so it might need to be replaced.

Overall, we are very much satisfied with the stay.

Warm and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was very cozy, convenient and clean. It met my expectations based on VRBO description. We enjoyed a bonfire outback and making s'mores. We also had fun watching the fish jump around in the canal. Prefect fall weekend in Michigan.

Birthday weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The home was cozy and had everything that we needed for the weekend. All we packed was clothes, blankets, towels and food if you are planning to cook. We did go into town and enjoyed lunch at Lakeside Charlie's. All other meals were prepared at the lake house and it has everything a kitchen needs.We enjoyed our stay as a family watching movies, sitting by the fire pit, going on the paddle boat and simply taking a stroll in the morning. It was perfect for us and I know it will be for you!
