Always Memorable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love this cottage. We came back for a second time! This time we brought our boat. It's really convenient to have a dock right out your front door!! The launch is just down the road. Literally. We really enjoyed the hot tub after a day out fishing. There's barely anyone on Mullet Lake. The sunrise is breathtaking. As always, Doreen is a pleasure to deal with. Thanks so much! We made many wonderful memories!

A wonderful small family escape

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage for a week-long getaway with my parents. We enjoyed the gorgeous lake views sighting a bald eagle, a cormorant, loons and other birds. The use of the two kayaks and the convenient location were much appreciated. We kayaked, took several walks on the North Central trail, fished from our boat catching enough good-sized perch for a meal, swam, sunbathed, visited Indian River and Cheboygan for sightseeing, ice cream and meals, and loved the clear view of the stars and the Milky Way from the hot tub. The cottage is well-stocked with cooking utensils (we brought most of our own food to cook). There's no AC, but once you open up the windows and set up fans, the breeze keeps you cool!

Beautiful lake with lots to do around the area. Dorene was great to work with.

  • 4 of 5

Overall we really enjoyed our trip. You really need water shoes to walk out into the water, which we quickly got from Walmart 15 min away. Some of the screens had holes in them which let in some bugs, but we were outside most of the time anyway. The hot tub was amazing for my wife and I when my 1.5 year old son went to bed. We also went to Macinac Island for an afternoon because we so close. I had good luck fishing right in front my of the cottage a little ways. We would rent here again for sure.

Owner's Response: I'm glad these guests enjoyed themselves. Everyone has been enjoying this cottage for years now and gets lots of repeat guests. I will bring up the screen holes with the owner as that would explain how little tiny bugs are getting in (last review) as we are constantly updating the home to make it more comfortable for the guests as once we hear about something that needs attention, we immediately respond and find a remedy. Thanks for letting me know:-)

Very cute getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We wanted to take a few days and get away and found this rental. Doreen was great in answering all our questions and making the booking easy. The cottage was very cute right on the water and allowed us to bring our dogs to make it a true family vacation. The cottage was nicely updated and had most everything you would need. There were a few

small things that would've given it five stars and once it was addressed it was assured it would be taken care of. The cleaning could've been better. It was overall very clean but upon arrival I could smell mildew in one room to find a dirty mop in the closet permeating the room and dead bugs right next to our pillows in the window sill that could've easily been wiped when changing the sheets. I was surprised it wasn't noticed, which made me wonder how clean really everything was since those things were so obvious. A few replacement kitchen items would have been nice too. The master bed was a bit thin and not very comfortable and the room desperately needed darkening curtains or something because every morning on vacation we were up with the sun at 5:00 a.m. I would definitely go back but bring a few things to accommodate our stay. Those few things listed aren't terrible, it just would have made it a five star if taken care of.

Owner's Response: I'm glad overall these guests enjoyed their stay and overall she said house was clean which it was as I cleaned it and clean it exactly the same way the past five years. We've replaced the mop but what happened was that the mop had not dried correctly as mop fabric part fell back into the bucket when was placed back in closet so it smelled musty. since it did not dry completely. It was not working correctly and this was the first time in five years a complaint but was an easy fix by placing outside until I could get a replacement. The closet has no door, just a curtain so yes, the mop smelled musty because it did not dry correctly so I just mentioned why not place the mop and bucket outside...easy fix.....this cottage only has ONE closet in whole house. We have since replaced the broken mop.The bugs are those microscopic knats that come in through screens. This cottage gets sunrises so unless you are not an early riser, maybe consider a sunset home. I will bring up room darkening to the owners but why would you want to sleep your vacation away.....

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.
