5/5 Excellent

The property was a good size for our group of 10. 5 adults and 5 children. The access to the river was not ideal for swimming but would work for fishing it seemed. We had a nice fire in the fireplace, and enjoyed being able to walk across to the little restraunt in town. We enjoyed being close to the Seney wildlife refuge and saw a good dozen sand cranes in various areas throughout our stay. Overall, I think we will come back and enjoy this piece of quiet living.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect place for us
We wish we could take this place with us wherever we go hunting.

4/5 Good

Staying with dogs
Great place if you are staying with your dogs.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay, economical, central location
We had a great time, easy to find, walk across the street to the local restaurant. Grocery store on corner. Our only concern was the house is right on the Main Street which meant an xtra eye on our 2 dogs due to the fast traffic. Centrally located for UP destinations. Easy checkin and checkout. Polite and responsive owner. There were pet stains in main bedroom but that is expected with a pet friendly rental. Otherwise very clean and soft new towels.

5/5 Excellent

A must for your next getaway to the great U.P. of Michigan. Property is centrally located to all the great attractions and the best fishing lakes. House is just like home. Everything you need is there. Can't thank the owner and property manager enough for a great vacation!
