nice and pretty quiet.good viewings of lake life.

  • 4 of 5

was clean. + things are comfy couch, comfy bed, nice tv but no local stations, nice shower and showerhead. big sink in bathroom was nice. - things negative were could use more lighting over the kitchen sink and work counter area especially for winter guests.beautiful tile slate floors but uncomfortable to walk on.thanks for doing no major work when I was there so it was quiet.seemed to be a bit of yard stuff around but i guess it was all lake life related .maybe some could be stored (stuff around the porch)

Great Cottage, Great New Years

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was cozy and warm, quiet and with great views of the lake. Fully stocked with amenities, my girlfriend and I cooked four full meals over the course of our two night stay. Fred was friendly and attentive, helpful and knowledgeable, providing directions and advice as needed.

The cottage itself was well decorated and clean, the beds were comfortable and prepared with fresh bedding.

The area surrounding the cottage was beautiful. We hiked in the woods, ate at a local diner, and had a wonderful New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

I would definitely recommend a stay!

Peaceful and great views!

  • 5 of 5

My (now) husband and I went on a simple honeymoon getaway up to Alpena in August and the cabin was the perfect place for us to get away from the craziness of the city. The views were beautiful and the accommodations were comfortable. The rustic touches throughout the cabin really made it a special experience for us. Fred was easy to reach when we needed him and gave us lots of privacy while we were there. Will definitely consider using this house again for a vacation in the future!
