Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect place for a quiet getaway. It is spotlessly clean and very cute and comfortable. We enjoyed eating dinner on the deck and watching the sun set and the stars were amazing. The lake is beautiful and very clear. Karen and John are the perfect hosts! They made us feel so welcome. We are already thinking about our next visit!

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing, enjoyable week here! Karen and John are so friendly and accommodating and having them on location was not an issue at all! They are happy to visit as much or as little as you would like!! Beautiful location, beautiful lake, amazing sunsets makes this quiet, off the beaten cottage so enjoyable! Perfect for couples or even families with kids!

Beautiful sunsets and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This cozy little cottage is right on the lake. Everything is neat, clean, and up to date. The owners were friendly and helpful but were never intrusive. They made sure everything was taken care of and in good order. Our 6 year old loved the lake and fishing. It's far enough out to feel like you're away, but close enough to Cheboygan for whatever you'll need in terms of restaurants, groceries, etc. Mackinaw City and Petoskey aren't that far away if you want to do some quick trips in search of dining and shopping. The only thing to be mindful of is the cottage is small and the sleeping area is open to the living area. It was not an issue at all for us, but if you have older or multiple kids it might be a little close for them. If it's just the two of you or a couple with one or two small children it's perfect. We would definitely stay there again.

Peaceful, quiet, welcoming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this cottage a couple weeks ago for our honeymoon! The owners are so friendly and welcoming, yet left us alone to enjoy our stay! They were available if we needed anything and were so accommodating, but never bugged us once! Great people!! Everything was clean and stocked and was a complete little home- you definitely get way more than your money's worth here. The cottage was even cuter in person and was on such a quiet, calm lake! We were the only ones on the water the entire week! We loved sitting out by the fire pit provided and watching the lake and listening to the loons! Great view and location! Cheboygan is a beautiful little town with lots to do! The cottage is even about 25 miles from Mackinaw City/ Mackinac Island/ The Bridge, so there is much to do in the surrounding area as well! If you are looking for a quiet, calm, peaceful vacation in the heart of Michigan's north, we highly recommend this cottage! We will be returning, for sure!

Fun for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. There was so much for us to do individually and as a family. We went fishing every day, swimming, ball sports visiting Cheboygan country fair and cycling around the local parks.

The owners were the best hosts ever. They made sure we were comfortable and helped us with everything we needed yet weren't nosy. This couple is just awesome. We have created great memories. Feel rather nostalgic now remembering the incredible sunsets we've witnessed. Being able to make our own bon fire every night was just such bonus.

I would rate our stay as 5 star because the cottage was clean, spacious. Great place to visit, beautiful scenery. We live in London United Kingdom but wish we were closer to be able to visit the charming cottage on Long Lake again and again. Miss you already.
