About the property

2 Bedroom Rental, Sleeps 7-11 Ppl, 5 Mins From Mackinaw City

Looking for a place to stay near Mackinaw City, one that’s close to the excitement of the city, but just far enough away to enjoy the beautiful outdoors that Northern Michigan has to offer??? New photos as of May 2018

Our home is just 5 minutes south of Mackinaw City and located on 8 acres of wooded property with a long secluded driveway. There is also a small creek that runs through the property to adventure to. The North Central State Trail (used for walking, biking, snowmobiling) is located less than half a mile from the rental. Our property has plenty of parking space for snowmobiles, campers, 4-wheelers, boats and more! The home also has an 8’ x 16’ deck that holds a small patio set and BBQ grill. Fire pit located in the front yard. Make sure to bring your camping chairs, we only have a handful for you to use!

Don’t forget the home is located in the woods and is secluded down a long driveway. You may see wildlife and even be pestered by mosquitos, so please remember your bug spray! 4 wheel drive is suggested for the winter months. The driveway will be plowed, but may be difficult to pass through with a small car.

Our home has 2 large bedrooms and one bathroom. Bedroom #1 has two bunk beds (1-twin/full and 1-twin/twin) and a small seating area with 32" TV and DVD player. Bedroom #2 has a king size bed and 43" TV with Blu-ray player. Pack n play also available. Open kitchen stocked with all of the cooking essentials that you may need, such as pots, pans and dishes. Large kitchen table that easily seats 8 people along with a bar that seats 3. The living room has two futon couches that can be unfolded to use as more sleeping space. DirecTV available on the television in the living room along with a DVD and VHS player.

The house is stocked with everything you may need, including...linens, towels, dishes, utensils, pots/pans, a coffee maker, etc! Stackable washer and dryer also included and located in small mudroom. Make sure to bring toilet paper! You are welcome to use any left over cleaning supplies, trash bags and laundry detergent, but I can not guarantee any will be there, so plan accordingly.

You will receive an email about one week prior to your arrival with instructions for the check-in/check-out process. Check-in begins at 3pm and check-out is at 11am. Please contact owner before reservation is made for special accommodations. No Wifi available, due to our location in the woods. No problem with cell phone coverage. There are many local campgrounds, restaurants and hotels that provide Wifi free of charge.

Cute cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin and thought it was great staging point for our trips to Mackinac Island and to the upper peninsula. The second bedroom would benefit from curtains in the windows since the sun woke our son up early each morning, but overall the place was very nice. It was great to be able to cook our own meals instead of eating out every time.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We brought our 2 children ages 6 & 11 for a long weekend to visit Mackinac City and the Island. The location of the house was perfect for everything we wanted to do. We were within 5-10 minutes of Mackinac City. Walmart was within 25 minutes in Cheboygan. We spent Saturday in Sault St Marie which was only an hour drive from the house. Perfect location to visit the cities, but really nice to come back to the quiet of the house. House is secluded, but really nice and more spacious than the pictures look. Kitchen is well stocked. It was really nice to have a washer and dryer in the house too. Our kids definitely had room to run and they loved the bedroom. There was definitely plenty of room for them. The Discovery Park is within a couple minutes and definitely worth it too. Bring bug spray though if you are outside for a while because you are in the woods. We had a raccoon visit us every night which the kids thought was pretty neat. We had a couple issues that I messaged Maureen about and she responded within 5 minutes and everything was taken care of. I would definitely recommend this home and would return again. All in all, we had a great time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay at our rental! I appreciate your honesty and am happy that your family was able to enjoy their stay. Like you said, this home is secluded and located in a wooded area. Bug spray is definitely helpful on those late nights and sometimes guests are able to see some "furry friends" outdoors. Thank you for being an amazing guest!

Overall decent

  • 2 of 5

Location of property and closeness to Mackinaw City was great. The house could have been cleaner. Beds and furniture very uncomfortable. Furniture and the house was not very clean at all. Stocked supplies would be nice, was not even a half roll of toilet paper.

We have had a few complaints about the cleanliness of the home and have decided to change cleaning companies, hoping this will eliminate the problem. We also have plans to update the home this fall, including new paint and mattresses on all of the beds. Thank you for sharing your input. I apologize for any problems you might have experienced.

Would definitely recommend to others. Only problem, which really wasn't a problem we found hair on a couple of beds when we arrived so we were not sure if they had been washed. So we washed the bedding and all was good. It was wonderful.

Rustic But Provided What We Needed

  • 3 of 5

The location was very good and we loved the out of town location. The house had everything we needed. However the bed were not comfortable at all. King (made of two twins) had a very noticeable split down the middle. Bottom bed of the bunk bed needs another mattress as the support beams are very noticeable when you lay down on the bed. The top bunk is too close to the ceiling. The other two twin beds were fine. The windows and kitchen floor need cleaning. Over all it provided what we needed, but we left very tired from the lack of comfortable sleeping.
