Perfect getaway! Could have not asked for a better stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. Exactly what we needed. Very specious, super comfortable, completely equipt with everything that was needed and wished we could stay a complete week to be able to use all the facilities the house provided. The only downfall was that there was no wifi for one of the guests that was injured and could not go skiing due to surgery he had a few months ago. he wanted to work from the home to have time later to be with all of us. We has able to find other places near by that had wifi. The other problem was that that the heating system was not on and when the first friends arrive the the house, it took about 8 hours to feel comfortable to sleep without being extremely cold. When it was time to sleep, it was perfect and not problems at all. The owners were sooooo sweet, welcoming, and dedicated to whatever we needed. Very available and even left some cookies as a welcome treat. Again ,the home was more than perfect and could not have asked for more. A perfect place to get away from the city and work. We would love to come in the summer to enjoy the lake and other activities. I would very much recommend this house for a vacation, relaxing time, and enjoying winter and summer times. Wishing to come back again next year!!! We are very thankful to the owners for being so accommodating and helpful.

Could not ask for a better place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six all stayed here & honestly could not have ask for a better home! Every room in the house is so cozy & relaxing. The home owners were very friendly, helpful & are willing to do whatever it takes to make our stay perfect! They baked us cookies, made sure the driveway was plowed (removed the snow) & gave us their personal number incase we needed anything. My whole family will be back to this rental again for sure, this time we would love to stay here in the summer. We all recommend this home for an amazing get-a-way to enjoy a real up north experience! Thank you Thank you!!

My family and I we had a wonderful Christmas vacation!

  • 4 of 5

I hope this may be of help to future visitors to this property and we also like to thank the owners for being very attentive from the first day we arrived at their property, thanks for everything! My family and I rented this property for Christmas getaway and we can't complain about anything, if you are looking for someplace away from the city but with closure and access stores, activities and mostly away from the typical day. We came here to spend the holiday and to take advantage of the skying at Boyne Mountain and I could not complain about anything our stay was wonderful so we wish to come back some other year. Thanks again to the owners for everything!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this beautiful place could not have been better. The owners go above and beyond to be welcoming! The pictures do not do this place justice. The cabin is spotless and everything you need is included in the kitchen, bedrooms and baths. It's the perfect place to do as little or as much as you want, and the views are breathtaking when the sun comes up and the mist rolls across the lake. The cabin is wooded on both sides, giving you more quiet and privacy, while the sights and sounds of nature all around you fills you with such peace and tranquility. The fire pit was wonderful to enjoy with plenty of dry firewood provided, and was especially nice in the cool night air. It's a little piece of Heaven, and I will definitely be back!

Wonderful, relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this lovely property. Great bird hunting nearby and a cozy setting for our adults only weekend up north. We found nothing to be lacking at the clean and comfy Irish Inn. Already planning to return next year.

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for the week of the 4th of July in 2016. The cabin was just what we needed. It was clean and well maintained. The house had everything we needed to be able to relax and just have fun. We took advantage of all of the amenities - we kayaked on the small lake and the big lake, paddle boated, fished, had campfires, played pool, ping pong, foosball, went to the pool, played games, etc, etc. The best was making some coffee, sitting on the beautiful porch and enjoying the view of nature all around us. The beds were comfortable and clean. The kitchen was so well stocked with cooking supplies, we ate most of our meals at the cabin. Our family, including the dog, had a wonderful time at this awesome cabin! Thank you so much!
