Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a weekend of snowmobiling and it was great! We had 7 people and 2 dogs and the cabin had plenty of room for all of us. It has lots of parking, we were able to fit 3 vehicles with trailers and still had more than enough driveway to park the sleds. Location is great also, very close to the trails and a gas station. Definitely going to rent from Mark again. Mark was very quick to respond if we had any questions.

Great Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great house with lots of beds, tons of outdoor space, and tons of supplies. The owners were great during the reservation process and we had no issues with the house. House was clean and had an amazingly well-stocked kitchen. It's definitely remote and cell service is spotty, but it's a nice place to escape.

Fantastic Family Stay

  • 4 of 5

What a great cabin on a beautiful Michigan lake. My four year old had a blast on the beach with all the toys, my husband actually got some much needed down time. The cabin had everything one would need. it was clean and comfortable. We were also allowed to take our dog with us who had recently had surgery, so even though much of her time was spent recuperating at least she could do so near us in this peaceful place.

Thanks to the owners for opening up heir cabin to us. We will be back.
