                                                      We had a great time. We had 3 families staying at this wonderful cottage. The beach was wonderful, the water was clear and the sun was shining. The McMurray's provided tons of water toys, sports balls, inside games and children books. The house was immaculate and had all the comforts from home. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!!

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      We spent 6 days here and enjoyed every day. A lovely setting, never had to use one ounce of repellent and sitting on the porch in the early morning and evening couldn't have been more serene. Tammy was a wonderful host, never bothering us unless we asked her for help. The home has everything you need, as did Posen. Close to Alpena and Rogers city. Tammy gave us a tour of the mill, as well as the out buildings that are being added or done and being used for weddings, etc. This trip met all of our expectations and we would recommend it to friends, relatives, anyone who wants comfort and serenity.
