Straits of Mackinac/Lake Huron home -- Mackinac Island-Grand Hotel view
Mackinaw City Northern Michigan

Mackinac Lake House

  • 5 of 5
One of our best vacations ever! The house was fabulous, very well furnished, with a great view. Mike and Amy were most accommodating, and very nice to deal with. We were treated like guests, not renters. Such a good feeling, very restful, and close to attractions. I highly recommend it. I was encouraged to call with any questions or problems, unlike most places I've rented. I took advantage of this, and called more than once for directions, good paces to eat etc.

The Mackinac City house is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. We really felt at home. The owners are generous with the amenities and the house is very clean. There are lots of area books to read, a jar of treats for the dogs, a washer and dryer with supplies, linens, etc. We received excellent directions and instructions about everything. To top it off, we were greeted with a loaf of fresh cinnamon bread on the kitchen counter upon our arrival! We will definitely go back, and want to rent this home again. I would absolutely recommend the Mackinac City house to a friend. Thanks to A & M for a great experience!
