Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Mullett Lake is a great lake for boating, fishing and just cruising. Green cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed, with the lake just outside our front door. Topinabee is well situated just off I-75 and close to Indian River and Cheboygan. The weather was great, except for two nasty days of rain. Dorene was great to work with and made our stay special. We really enjoyed our stay on Mullett Lake and hope to return sometime in the future. Thanks so much.

Clean, bright light, relaxing, and fun!

  • 5 of 5

Went up there in the middle of winter so that my partner could go ice fishing for his birthday weekend. They didn't catch much fish, but the property was very fun and relaxing nonetheless!

Had a very nice time. Cottage was very nice and the view from the deck was beautiful. Hot tub was nice right outside the slider. The only negative thing was bed wasn't the best but I have slept on worse otherwise I would definitely recommend this place and we hope to come back again next year. Thank you so much for a great place for our vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks! This home gets lots of repeat guests all the time.....owners can barely stay there and most repeat guests have stayed there more nights in a row than the owners have ever in their whole time of owning....lol!!!! Actually, I have 3 cottages with this same exact view and homes are all updated with amenities guests don't have at their own home, no doubt:-)

Beautiful sunrises, warm beach, easy access to walking/running/biking trails

  • 4 of 5

Nice beach and unbeatable sunrises. We rented a boat and enjoyed watching the sun come up from both the patio and the boat. Loved that the protected nature path was just behind the house. Water was nice right off the house -- water shoes recommended which is common for most mullet lake properties.

House was cute and bright, but could use a deep clean (sills, under furniture, top of fridge and crawl space -- big dust bunnies) and a few repairs (screen of sliding door off main bedroom is broken). Overall a very good time and a good deal for the price.

Bonus: washer and dryer in house is great for anyone, especially families with kids. Also, TV and DVD player and games helpful for any rainy days. Close proximity to a playground in topinabee was nice too.

Great location. Great view out front of cottage. Cottage has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We love Mullet lake. Clean, cold, refreshing water. This cottage was perfect for two adults and three kids. Kayaks were an added bonus and a lot of fun. Hot tub was great. This cottage had everything you could think of and was very reasonable. We will definitely return.

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.
