Great quiet place, it has the necessities, however bring your own coffee, spices and snacks while location is only 15 minutes from mackinaw city the nearest store is also in mackinaw city so be prepared for that. Every thing was slightly better than expected. I would stay here again! And recommend.

The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. Richie was a great host; very prompt with communication. The location was great base point for all the site seeing around the area. Waterfront sunrise and moonrise over the lake were incredible.

Very rustic cabins that reminded me of cabins from my childhood summers on lakes in northern MN: lakeside breezes on the screened porch, picnic table right on the lake. Very pleasant, friendly host. Our cabin (#3) was very roomy for the two of us (my daughter and myself). We spent part of a day kayaking in Ritchie’s boats—very convenient. Meals at Harbor Lights Grill were wonderful for food and the lake view. We found a lot to do in the area: berry picking on nearby farms, 4th of July fireworks in Macinaw City, a day on Macinac Island, hikes on the upper peninsula.

There’s nothing to complain about. The cabin and setting are beautiful. Truly ideal. However, if you’re looking for a quiet getaway and some alone time with the family, know that these cabins are really close together- just about the width of a car. We had heavy smokers in the cabin next door and could hear every cough, well into the wee hours. With the windows open, which is a summertime must, it got old quickly. In the evening, we roasted marshmallows in the firepit, but could easily overhear (and be overheard) the conversations of our neighbors and at one point had to ask the neighbor to reel in their child who had invited herself into our family time. If you’re going to meet new people, this is a perfect location. We had hoped for a little more quiet and privacy. Again- the place is great and I have 5 stars for everything. It’s just something I wish I had considered before hand.

Nice cabin!

"Airbnb Review #770531166 #114039"

Place was easy to find, comfy and had all the necessities we needed for a cabin night. Right on the lake plus the fenced patio in the back makes it easy to enjoy the outside without the annoying bugs. Ritchie also had a variety of rentals and items to purchase if needed, like firewood, kayaks, a cool paddle swan thing. If we ever find ourselves in the UP again will for sure check out this spot again for sure!

Quaint cabin on the lake. Had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable. Screened in porch was my favorite spot to watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee.

Ritchie’s cabin is a wonderful little place right on the lake. The place was clean and perfect for our needs and the screened it porch was a great feature.

Very nice place, the Cabin #3 has easily accessible lake shore, and it’s really beautiful when you light the campfire and sit by the lake at night. Amazing cabin with all the things you would expect. Will visit again for sure.

"Great place to stay!!"

by Tracy Ewing


Ritchie was awesome! We truly enjoyed staying at his very cozy & comfortable cabins. Highly recommend this place!

"Enjoyed our stay"



Right on the water. Just minutes from mackinaw city. Dog friendly.

"Perfect for family"

by Barbara Zieba


The cabin was perfect for us as the youngest child is 4 and he could play in the lake since it is pretty shallow. All your basic amenities are there and you are only 10 minutes drive to Mackinac City. We would definitely come back- highly recommended.

"Very Nice"

by Shane Copeland


Very Nice.

"Thanks for a enjoyable week"

by d mahl


The cabin was vary nice and clean. we were very comfortable. It is ideal for a family with young children as the lake is very shallow for several feet, and it is right outside the screened in porch. Richie, the owner was very helpful if you have any problems. we plan on going back for return visit.

"cozy cabin"

by Jennica Beavers


The cabin despite its size is very cozy and welcoming, my friends and I all had a good time. There were some plumbing issues, but that can always be fixed. Ritchie was very kind to us and made sure we had all the blankets we needed and was very helpful with giving information about the town. The places he recommended were top notch. 🙂

"Wonderful Stay!"

by Lee Stull


Very Nice Cabin. We would book again.

"Rustic, but nice."
