Ritchie's cabin is at a beautiful location right by Carp Lake. The view early in the morning was one of the best I've seen ever. The cabin is really cute and has all the necessary amenities required. I would give this Airbnb a 5/5 rating.

This place is worth visiting just to sit on the porch with coffee and watch the sunrise. Every moment is breathtaking! It’s in a central location to take in sights and activities in lower Michigan as well as the UP. It’s also nice to be able to save some $ and cook a few meals at the cabin instead of going out all the time. Ritchie is always available if you need anything, but also respects your privacy. We will no doubt be back!

Ritchie is an excellent host. The cabin is cute positioned on the shore of Lake Carb. This is a perfect stay for a young family who would enjoy a camp fire on the shore, fishing, boating and touring in the area. Pets are welcome.

Spent one night at Cabin #4 with a couple of friends and it was great. The location is great and exactly 9 mins from Mackinaw City ferry to Mackinac island. The cabin is directly on the water with a nice fire pit that. Honestly, it's the perfect place for a nice relaxing getaway. Ritchie is very nice and he greeted us at the door. He was available to answer any questions and was very helpful. I will definitely plan to come back in the future. 5 stars!

Overall it was great the cabins we a bit close together for my liking you could hear the neighbors talking from inside. But it was close to everything and a fun experience!

Had a great time! Seeing our boys jump off the dock and swimming with them was priceless. Our 6 year old kept saying, “best vacation ever!” Thank you for letting us in early too! We can’t wait to come back. Keep up the great work.

The cabin is a pleasant reminder of how lake life used to be. The cabin has everything you need for a trip up north. We found the beds really comfortable and the fire pit was great. The shower is a bit small if you are a bigger person (I am 6'3" and 240 lbs, so it was a little tight).
