Located 12 mins south of the property is Indian River. This quaint tourist town,located between Burt and Mullet Lakes, is a wonderful place to stroll.

About Nicole

We are not a rental company. We are a single family wanting to share our year round second home with other families who expect a well kept beautiful location. We are NOT looking to rent our home every day of the summer. The dates we don't rent give us a chance to enjoy our home.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time celebrating New Years Eve. Plenty of room for the 16 of us. Lots of room for TV watching, game playing or just reading a book. Our grandson enjoyed the games in the basement, became a foosball champ! The only thing that would have made our weekend better was to have had a MSU win!!

We would recommend this Indian River property. Nicole was very easy to reach and answered any concerns promptly. We hope to return in warmer weather to take advantage of the beautiful lake and porch on the home.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house is fantastic- so beautiful and spacious inside and out. We had 8 adults and 5 grandkids and we enjoyed every minute we had there. We were in awe of the details and how well stocked the kitchen was and the quality throughout! Even with a storm all day Sunday, we found things to do. We made use of the downstairs area and played pool and cards and the grandkids had ample choice of toys to play with! The deck overlooking the lake was perfect for our group--like a giant playpen for our grandkids age 5 and under. No worries about kids falling down stairs! The weather was cooler than most August days, but we still made the most of it and got on the lakes and rivers every chance we could! On one of the so/so weather days, we drove to Mackinac City and saw how that has grown since the last time we'd been there! There is just so much to see and do in this area and we have always loved it. We will definitely be back another year. None of us wanted to leave! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home with us.

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

My family of 10 stayed together in this house. Our kids were so excited when we drove up to the house! The lake was wonderful. The only draw back was the amount of geese poop on the lawn & sand. We took turns using the pooper scooper to clear it up in the morning. After that, it was more enjoyable. The bedrooms were cozy and nice. The downstairs one needed more coveraged so light wasn't so bright first thing in the morning. The taxidermy was very cool and impressive. We really enjoyed having the laundry room, outdoor shower, and spacious deck. The screen porch was a cozy place in the evenings. The kids loved hooking up their video games in the basement, and they liked the air hockey and foosball. We all enjoyed the kitchen, and eating area was lovely. At the end of the week, we didn't want to leave and it felt like home. Days later we are all reminiscing and wishing we can go back. Thank you for a great week! This house will not disappoint's a gem!

Pure Michigan!!

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful home! It is so spacious with room for so many - enough if you want privacy, or to have the whole group together! But with all the space, it still has that northern Michigan cozy comfortable feeling! Very clean home with comfy beds and bedrooms, well stocked and very organized kitchen, perfect location to go out on Mullet Lake, or cruise on the Cheboygan River, through the locks, and to Lake Huron, or down the Indian River, out to Burt Lake and over.... Everyone loved staying here! No complaints but one wish - that it had stairs off the upper deck directly to the beautiful yard and water! Would definitely stay again!
