Beautiful cabin
The cabin was beautiful and the views were great.

5/5 Excellent

Breathtaking sunrise over the lake
Everything was easy, the home was beautiful as was the surrounding area. We enjoyed the lake and the easy access to biking trails. We are so looking forward to coming back next year.

5/5 Excellent

Cabin on the Straights
Wonderful cabin. Beautiful views of the straights from the deck. Cabin was clean and comfortable. Steve and Eva made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Will definitely return again.

5/5 Excellent

That View!
The cabin is absolutely charming. All of our needs were met for day to day living and comfort. The Amish crafted furnishings and local crafts added to its log cabin ambiance. Now, the piece de resistance is the view. Lake Huron delivers from sunrise to sunset.

5/5 Excellent

A unique find
Such a beautiful property directly on the water with spectacular views of everything. Far enough away from the city for quiet cottage atmosphere but a quick ride for dinner or ferry ride to the island. Thank you for your hospitality!
