I would recommend this place to anyone. peaceful and relaxing place to stay.
Thanks Ritchie. You are a great host.
Definitely rustic. Great location with beautiful lake views. No privacy at all. There’s wasn’t even anywhere to walk our dogs. Cabins are super close. Inside was clean enough. Holes in the floor and walls and mildew on bathroom walls. Bring paper towels! Something I needed and didn’t have.
I chose one of Ritchie's cabins because I needed a weekend away, and I am so thankful I did! The cabins are even better than the photos, and so close to the lake. The view of the lake out of the windows were dreamy and wonderful! The kitchen was pretty well stocked with pots, pans, utensils and other necessities which was nice. The beds were comfy, and I brought my own blankets for extra-coziness. Ritchie was so patient with my arrival time as I was slowed down by heavy rain quite a bit. I stayed in the cabin with my dog most of the weekend, so I can't really review the surrounding areas (not sure of hikes, etc.) but I highly suggest this cabin for a quite weekend away from life!
I would recommend staying at this location to anyone. Very peaceful.
Enjoyed my stay, cabin was cozy and just as described by the host. Quick response and greeted upon check in. Also a good value for the money. Enjoyed the lakefront sunrise and swimming ducks.
Breathtaking views, super comfortable, easy check in!
Ritchie is very friendly & attentive, accommodated our every need. The cabin is very nice & you have a beautiful view of the lake right behind the cabin. Definitely will be booking again!
Such a great location! Ritchie was very friendly and helpful. Our stay was very enjoyable!
My fiancé and I stay in cabin #3 once a year. We absolutely love it!!! We have the most relaxing and fun stay. Ritchie is a wonderful host as well.
I stayed here on my travel back from the UP. It’s right outside of Mackinaw City so you can avoid the heavy tourist crowds, but are still close enough to explore. The campfire spot is dreamy and you can hear the water hitting the shore right outside the windows at night! The host Ritchie was readily available and welcoming!
Great place and amazing host! the cabin is beautiful with access to the lake and a camp fire place! very cozy and very accessible host.
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.
Location is great.
Great northern cabins! Makes me think of my Grandparents Cabin. Very good value for the price
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.
The view was fantastic, the cabin was clean, it was very quiet even though they are all very close together. We would stay again!
The lake view is great. The host is always available. Thanks!
Great location and clean. Has everything you need to get started and the owner is around if you should need anything. Definitely recommend and would love to come again!
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.
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!
Million-dollar view from the porch! Great spot from which to explore the surrounding area.
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.
Stayed 2 nights for a fishing trip and the cabin was exactly as advertised!
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.
Cute cabins on the lake. Host was friendly.Beds were comfortable and clean.
Will be booking again in the future.
Ritchie was an excellent host! The cabin was adorable and the view was beautiful. He had everything we needed...and some things we forgot. We would absolutely stay again. Thanks, Ritchie!
Great spot to get away, nice view and pleasant interactions with landlord. Very cost efficient and enjoyed ever second of it.
Ritchie was awesome! We truly enjoyed staying at his very cozy & comfortable cabins. Highly recommend this place!
Right on the water. Just minutes from mackinaw city. Dog friendly.
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.
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.
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. 🙂
Very Nice Cabin. We would book again.
Nice lakefront rustic cabin. Enjoyed fire on lakefront every night. Nice docks and rowboat was cool. Very helpful having owner onsite during day. Firewood available onsite. Overall have to give it an A+, Thanks for a great place to stay , Ritchie. See ya again soon.
from $78 / night
