Yellow Cottage on Mullett Lake

  • 5 of 5

We were up for only three days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. A very clean, cozy, and well outfitted cabin. We needed nothing but our own food and drink! If you are bringing a boat along, be advised the dock sits high and uneven and there are no boat bumpers to protect your boat. The wind picked up a little on the second day and our new fishing boat was gouged up pretty good. We had to tie our cushions and life jackets to the dock to protect the boat after that.

Owner's Response: I'm glad these guests enjoyed themselves and appreciate the excellent review. This cottage books mostly repeat guests bringing boats. There are no bumpers on the dock so it's always a good idea to have bumpers on the boat anyways for any dock in which you would be using to protect your boat as Mullett Lake waves can kick up big time....also, keep in mind that boat launch is less than one block from home so it may be in your best interest to take the boat out when waves are out of control or when bad weather is coming/happening and then put boat back in when weather calms down. That is what I always suggest to the guests:-) I will bring up this with the owners to place some bumpers on the dock for any guests who don't have any in their boat or use the buoy that is supplied and floating in front of the home to float your boat away from the dock. Lots of guests do that, especially on unpredictable waters/huger waterways such as Mullett Lake.

Great cottage home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at the yellow cottage in Topinabee. The home had the right amount of comfort and amenities for us to not miss home, but also had plenty of that "up north" feel to make sure you know you're on vacation. Really enjoyed the the 2 kayaks that were available for use, and the walking/biking trail that runs adjacent to the west side of the lake. Dorene is a great communicator and very helpful throughout the rental process.

Owner's Response: These guests are absolutely correct and sums it up in a nutshell. Cottage gives you the feel of being in Northern Michigan escaping the hustle and bustle of the city. We make sure the homes have enough entertainment/amenities to keep the average family occupied all week long with endless activities to keep everyone busy!

If you seek a cute, clean cottage on Mullet Lake, this is it! Our fall getaway long weekend was ideal as this place is centrally located in Topinabee from where we could easily drive to northern Lk Michigan towns those on Lk Huron as well as the Mackinac Bridge leading to the Upoee Peninsula. If we had more time we'd have loved to simply stay put at the cottage and relax by the water or be cozy inside! Loved the many lakeside Windows from which to view the gorgeous sunrise over the lake! And the double mattress in the lakeside master bedroom was supportively perfect for a great night's sleep! The manager, Darlene, was a gem and most thoughtful. We want to return as soon as possible!

Owner's Response: These guests are 100% correct....this cottage is in a great area to go on MANY different day trips all within a short drive from cottage and when you get back to the cottage, it's as comfortable as the feeling of home but yet in an area which spells out VACATION!

Why Northern Lakeshore chose Mullett Lake

This property boats spectacular views, excellent Fishing and being on the shores of Mullett Lake which connects other lakes and rivers known as Northern Michigan's Famous Inalnd Waterway with the bonus North Central Trail System behind home for biking, hiking, snowmobiling, walking the dog, etc.

The best of both worlds all in one! Way too much to do in the area as I have been coming to Mullett Lake for vacation every since I was born, Beautiful Lake, awesome views:-)Close to just about every and any type of day trip imaginable....You have to come back to do the rest of the stuff you did not have time for as time goes by way too fast.

What makes this cottage unique

Cottage is literally on the shore of Mullett. You sit so close to the shore, you feel as though you are on a boat.

Hearing the waves roll off the rock is the most soothing

Topinabee/Indian River area is the heart of the finest outdoor recreational opportunities that Northern michigan has to offer such as lakes and rivers for boating and fishing, forests for hunting wildlife and mushroom hunting, bird watching and recreational trails for snowmobiling, biking, hiking, cross country skiing and ORV riding converge on Indian River. You can come to Topinabee and Indian River and go fast-water kayaking, ORV riding and sea kayaking all in the same summer weekend. If you'd rather do something more passive, substitute reading a book by the lakeshore or riverfront having lunch while watching boats pass by on the waterway and sitting by a campfire in the evening! Indian River is located between Burt and Mullett Lakes, two of Michigan's largest inland lakes and are part of the Inland Water Route, a 38 mile chain of lakes and rivers that begins in Conway and empties into Lake Huron at Cheboygan.The lakes and connecting rivers are enjoyed by boaters, kayakers, sailboaters and a wide variety of powerboats! Indian River is a prime fishing destination for both professionals and amateur fishermen but the professionals don't enjoy their catch any more than the five-year-old who catches his or her first fish while fishing with grandpa! Indian River is also at the middle of the North Central State Recreational Trail, a 62 mile trail from Gaylord to Machinaw City. The Indian River Golf Club has a beautiful 18 hole course and wthin an hour's drive there are dozens of other 9 and 18 hole courses. The Cross in the Woods is the Worlds largest crucifix. It is one of Michigan's top tourist destinations and draws hundreds of thousands of people to Indian River each year.Indian River is at the northern edge of the Pigeon River Country State Forest, home of the nationals largest wild elk herd east of the Mississippi. The state forest also has miles and miles of forestland for hunting, fishing, mushroom & berry picking, camping and hiking.
