Stop for a stay here in our cute downtown cottage which now sleeps 9. Close to the river, Mackinaw Bridge, boating, camping, fishing, hiking, biking, restaurants, stores and State Park. Cozy accommodations.
This is a quaint cottage consisting of 2 large bedrooms, a nice sized living space, separate dining room, huge country kitchen, large bath and a spacious backyard. One bedroom has a queen bed and twin bed, the other bedroom has a double bed, living room has a pull out couch so you can sleep 7 comfortably! We just added A/C units for the 2 bedrooms so it is now more comfortable for sleeping!
We have a flat screen HDTV so if you have ROKU you can bring your device and watch your favorites! We have internet but no cable and only get 3 stations with our antennae. We find most people don't watch much TV when up here as there is so much to do outside and in the neighboring communities. We are only 15 min to Mackinaw City, the Mackinaw Bridge and the ferry that takes you to Mackinaw Island! Our house is very close to the walkover bridge that crosses the river and leads to downtown. (access to the bridge is in the ball field parking lot almost directly behind the house next door.) Once over the bridge, you are very near the local brewery and Dairy Queen! A jungle gym playground is also just a few houses south at the end of C Street.

We have allowed access to the laundry room which leads out to the backyard. And for overflow sleeping we just added another sleeper sofa (queen sized) in that space. It's got doors to give you privacy and is perfect for teens to crash!
Cupboards in the mud room ARE OFF LIMITS TO GUESTS. THIS IS PRIVATE SPACE FOR OWNERS.

We don't live in the same town anymore but have a relative that can come by for any emergency and we are always just a phone call away!
We also reserve the right to enter the house at any time with or without notice. Sometimes we have to drop something off (esp since we don't live in that city) or take something from the house. This rarely happens but in the off chance that we need to come in, we want to be up front and let you know. We will try to contact you beforehand and will try to come when you are there. We will never come during sleeping hours (of course) or too early or too late.
We have local maps in the cottage as well as an Information sheet to look over when you arrive.
Our biggest rule is that we provide beds for each paying guest. 2 to a bed just like a motel. So if 4 people book with us, we provide 2 beds. If you want to use the pull out couch, we are ok with that, but you will have to bring your own linens, or sleeping bag. We also only offer 1 bath towel per guest for their stay. If you want a clean towel every day, please bring some from home. Please make sure all dishes are washed when you leave. Take shoes off at the door if it's raining out. No smoking in house and only guests who are registered allowed to stay overnight. Just treat our home as you would your own. That's it!
We are an artsy couple, who love to travel and entertain. This home is right next door to the house where we live, so we will be able to greet you and help you with ideas for restaurants, sites to see etc to make your UP North experience the best it can be!
