Clean cabin with amazing beach!

  • 4 of 5

The beach was beautiful and well maintained, the cottage was rustic but clean. The general store was a nice touch providing items needed but forgotten. Brian was very helpful and always available. One down fall was spotty wi-fi, it was never reliable and with four kids that was a little challenging! All in all would definitely stay again!

Tons of fun on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this property for 3 years now. It is a lot of fun being right on Lake Huron so we can take our young kids out to the beach without having to pack everything up. We also enjoy using the fire pit in the evening for s'mores. Also, Brian is very nice and always available for questions or help. Highly recommend!

Great Vacation Spot in Port Austin, Michigan

  • 5 of 5

This property was beautiful with a view of the lake each morning. The beach is fabulous, very clean and soft, white sand. Very clean cabin, all appliances worked and Brian is there to assist with anything that you need. This is the 2nd year that we have stayed there and would stay there again. Convenient location to shopping and many things to do in Port Austin and Caseville. We loved it!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at these cabins and we plan to go back next year. The cabins are great but the best part is being able to walk right down to the beach with our young children. We also enjoyed being able to cook/grill all of our food! Also, Brian is very kind and accommodating! Thanks again for another great time, Brian!

Beautiful location, well maintained property!

  • 5 of 5

We rented cabin 7 for the weekend. Property was very clean and well maintained. The cabin is steps away from the beach. Very nice beach area. We spent most of our time in the water!

We spent some time in the village of Port Austin. I highly recommend the kayak trip to Turnip Rock (Port Austin Kayaks). Port Austin also had a farmer's market on our weekend there.

Overall a very enjoyable weekend with my family!
