Perfect beyond words!!!!

  • 5 of 5

First things first. Heidi is AWESOME and is quick with responses.

As for the property....Pictures on line do NOT do it justice. You feel completely at home. House is VERY clean. Plenty of towels and bedding. Close enough to Cross Village yet far enough to be out of town. Wonderful beach "all sand" no rocks great for sunset walks. We are looking forward to next year.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, secluded location overlooking Lake Michigan. Spacious home with a well-stocked kitchen, games, books, even kayaks! Although secluded and private, you are close enough to towns - Mackinac City, Harbor Spring, Petoskey. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Great place to stay along Lake Michigan!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here June 11-16, 2017 and had a great time! The property is nicely appointed and beautifully maintained. The kitchen has all the implements necessary to make your own meals if going out to eat all the time isn't your thing - but be sure not to miss Leg's Inn! We were concerned the midges were going to be a problem, but the breeze off the lake made them a non-issue.

Beautiful sunsets and plenty of beach for walking made for a great week! Be prepared for a break from technology - TV reception is not reliable. It's a good opportunity to put the devices away and spend time reconnecting with family and/or friends, and nature!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind and accurate review of the cottage! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay! And always relieved when midge season does not cause annoyance or displeasure during one's vacation. Please come visit again!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the cabin perfect, but the location as well. The cottage was very well kept and very comfortable. We had the most relaxing time, whether we just hung out at the cottage or stopped at the beautiful small towns along the Lake Michigan shoreline. And if you haven't seen it yet, the Sleeping Bear Dunes are not to be missed!
