Enjoyable and relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was so nice to come back again and stay here a second time. Got greatest time of relaxing and enjoying private stay and stunning views.

Got four- big pike and many Bass fishes, perches, sun fishes....

One day drive to Monreal, Canada and take a Bus Tour - thats worth it!

Of course will stay here again in next year!!! :-)

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Nice quiet location on Chippewa Bay. Just far enough from Alex. Bay to make it private but easy to get to for shopping and restaurants. Clean well kept cottage.Comfortable beds and living room furniture. Awesome deck and dock space, although not suitable for larger boats due to the water depth. Public boat launch 5 minutes away. Fishing of dock yielded large mouth bass, northern pike and lots of little perch and crappie. Safe boating and tubing in the bay, 15 minute boat ride to Singer Castle and fishing grounds. My two teenagers caught 3.5 and 4 lb. bass off Cedar Island, 10 minutes boat ride away. Great swimming at north end of Cedar Island at state park. No TV reception so bring your favorite DVD's. Several VCR tapes and DVD's at cottage. Decent Verizon and ATT cell service. Lots of wildlife sitings at cottage including many chipmunks, huge bullfrogs, lunes, cormorants, geese, and an owl.

Washer and dryer at cottage was a bonus.

Pretty location

  • 4 of 5

The location was very pretty, right on the water. It was great to have the kyacks and the dock. The house was very clean and had pretty much everything needed. My only negative is that, while there was a TV there, there was no reception. There is an antennae on the roof but appears to be broken and TV not hooked up to it. Since there is no wifi it would have been nice to be able to catch the news,etc on TV. You could watch DVDs.

The Big Dipper Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay! It was very peaceful but still close to ABay and all the activities. The cottage was very clean, great grill an awesome deck! We enjoyed feeling like we were camping in the middle of the woods but had the awesome cottage to relax and enjoy! We would love to return to this hideaway!

We also enjoyed seeing the huge big dipper, Alvin the chipmunk and all the wild life around the camp!

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Got home yesterday from our third visit to the Big Dipper Cottage. The cottage is perfect for a quiet, peaceful vacation and is stocked with nearly everything you could need. Having the dock within walking distance of the cottage is great for early morning fishing trips or evening sightseeing on the river. Keep your eyes open so you don't miss the bald eagles, the mink and the herons! Fabulous stay. Will be back next year!

Great Vacation Property!!

  • 5 of 5

Having been to the River many, many times, this is one of the most beautiful views and location. Peaceful, easy access for boating and fishing. We brought a fishing boat, which fit perfectly on the dock with room to spare. Property is well kept up and very clean. The stay was very enjoyable!!
