Crystal clear water. Close to town, library, restaurants/cafes. Bring your bikes!
Located on a dead end private road; very quiet and secluded. No full time neighbors anywhere in sight!!!
Because of the views and the Famous Inland Waterway and
cottage is on the biking, hiking, snowmobile trail.
The best of both worlds all in one! WAY TOO MUCH TO DO IN THE AREA!
Close to just about every and any type of day trip imaginable....You have to come back
to do the rest of the stuff you didn't have time for.
Cottage is literally on the shore of Mullett. You sit so close to the shore, you feel as though you are on a boat.
Hearing the waves roll off the rock is the most soothing
This place is so amazing..!! From the layout of the cottage to the view of the lake! I stayed during Memorial Day weekend and we had a blast! This place is stocked with cleaning materials and cooking untinsils! I went from tubbing in the lake to swimming in it lol even after dark. We enjoyed the hot tub, paddle boat and the kayaks provided . Overall I give this place 5 stars! Not to mention Dorene being such a sweetheart and allowing the 3 extended family members of ours to accompany us on our get away. I can't thank her enough for that. We will definitely be going back!'
Spent a really fun anniversary weekend here in late March. The ice was flowing on the lake but the stars were out and the hot tub was warm!
Very clean cabin with everything we needed! We were able to watch three NCAA tournaments games at once using the satellite and WIFI. ( So the TV works and the internet is fast enough, if that matters to you.)
Location is very nice. There's rental properties close on both sides but when we visited no one else was home. A day trip to Mackinac would be easy from here.
Owners were very accommodating and friendly. Dog friendly owners are a HUGE plus! Our dog is part of the family and weekends up north wouldn't be the same without him!
I try to visit new places whenever possible but with this rental I might book a second trip.
Booked very last minute and Dorene was very accommodating. My 3 kids and I had a blast in the late winter snow and loved having the hot tub right on the water to come back to. The master bedroom has great views of the lake and I'll definitely be looking to book again in warmer weather to enjoy the lake.
Spent a relaxing week at this property. Hot tub and fireplace were great! The cottage is well equipped and clean. Very peaceful location. We enjoyed cross country skiing and a winter raft trip, but spent most of the time relaxing at the cottage. It was the perfect winter getaway!
Overall we were very happy with our stay! Went during the winter, so lots of opportunity to snowmobile, ice fish and sit in the hot tub! The kitchen provides most utensils you would need to make a meal. The master bedroom was cute and cozy, although the beds weren't too soft- but wasn't expecting it. Most vacation rentals I've been to have firmer beds. TV has Netflix and dish, so lots of options for entertainment! Couch was a little warn out, but didn't spend too much time on it. Overall a great stay, would come again!!
This cottage is so cute and cozy!!! Beautiful picturesque views of the lake. Picture below is looking out the back door. Snowmobile trails are right next to the place. Walking distance to an eatery pub. Cottage is very clean and updated. Hot tub is wonderful. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. Hope to stay here in the future.
Topinabee/Indian River area is the heart of the finest outdoor recreational opportunities that Northern michigan has to offer such as lakes and rivers for boating and fishing, forests for hunting wildlife and mushroom hunting, bird watching and recreational trails for snowmobiling, biking, hiking, cross country skiing and ORV riding converge on Indian River. You can come to Topinabee and Indian River and go fast-water kayaking, ORV riding and sea kayaking all in the same summer weekend. If you'd rather do something more passive, substitute reading a book by the lakeshore or riverfront having lunch while watching boats pass by on the waterway and sitting by a campfire in the evening! Indian River is located between Burt and Mullett Lakes, two of Michigan's largest inland lakes and are part of the Inland Water Route, a 38 mile chain of lakes and rivers that begins in Conway and empties into Lake Huron at Cheboygan.The lakes and connecting rivers are enjoyed by boaters, kayakers, sailboaters and a wide variety of powerboats! Indian River is a prime fishing destination for both professionals and amateur fishermen but the professionals don't enjoy their catch any more than the five-year-old who catches his or her first fish while fishing with grandpa! Indian River is also at the middle of the North Central State Recreational Trail, a 62 mile trail from Gaylord to Machinaw City. The Indian River Golf Club has a beautiful 18 hole course and wthin an hour's drive there are dozens of other 9 and 18 hole courses. The Cross in the Woods is the Worlds largest crucifix. It is one of Michigan's top tourist destinations and draws hundreds of thousands of people to Indian River each year.Indian River is at the northern edge of the Pigeon River Country State Forest, home of the nationals largest wild elk herd east of the Mississippi. The state forest also has miles and miles of forestland for hunting, fishing, mushroom & berry picking, camping and hiking.
