Nice place for a small group or family
The house was very nice, but needs a few touches to make it perfect. It’s small and located in the prettiest little area. The outside and inside were spotless and nicely decorated. I wouldn’t recommend it for more than 5-6 people, as it only has one bathroom (and one mirror!). What it needs - BATHROOM: hooks, shelves and handrails (around claw foot tub). And, definitely needs to have towels supplied. The old tub is cool to look at, but it is not user friendly for a shower. KITCHEN and DINING AREA: Please - more lights! Not only is it hard to see to cook and clean up the kitchen, but we also couldn’t see to play card games or work a puzzle! Lastly, walls are thin, which might create a problem with some groups.
Great location and cabin
Cabin was perfect. Lake was great. Only negative was the train that went through at 3am every day.
Vacation July 31-Aug 6
We had a wonderful stay. The cabin had everything our family needed. Very cute and clean. Would love to rent again, but as our family keeps growing much more space will be needed.
Shelley we are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We have multiple properties, look us up when you come back, we will certainly try our best to accommodate your family. 906-286-0555.
Perfect UP getaway
Beautiful property overlooking a very quite and secluded Lake Gulliver.
Thanks Kathi, glad you enjoyed your stay!
Lovely rustic property
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was very clean and when we had a plumbing issue, Dale was quick to respond and fix it. Could use a little bit more lighting but it was well supplied.
Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciated your patience while we fixed the plumbing :)
Stayed 3 nights, great central location.
Great home base for exploring the U.P. Nice and clean, lake was beautiful. Aside from a couple of middle-of-the-night train whistles, it was perfect. Small mechanical issue the first night, but the owner was apologetic and quickly remedied the problem.
Scott, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for being patient while we fixed the issue.
While in Manistique be sure to check out the following attractions:
"Ride the Raft" at Kitch-iti-kipi" (Big Spring)-Two hundred feet across, the 40 foot deep Kitch-iti-kipi is Michigan's largest spring. Over 16,000 gallons a minute gush from fissures in the underlying limestone. The flow continues throughout the year at a constant temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Ride the covered self operated observation raft to overlook fascinating underwater features and fish.
Lighthouse and Board Walk: Two miles of paved walking trail along the beautiful Lake Michigan Shoreline ending on the East Breakwater Lighthouse built in 1916.
Rainey Wildlife Area: A hiking trail that passes through maple, yellow birch, and mixed conifer habitat takes hikers over the boardwalks and through wet areas, leading to an observation platform that provides a feeling of remoteness with outstanding opportunities for viewing wildlife.
Seul Choix Point Lighthouse: Pronounced "Sis-Shwa" located a few miles east of the cottage, was once a thriving fishing community. Seul Choix, French for "only choice" is a Historic National Landmark. The lighthouse, like many, has a rich history and some even claim its haunted. The complex includes a two-story home restored and decorated, and several outbuildings. There is also a maritime museum with a dugout canoe--one of the rarest finds to be uncovered in the Midwest.
The refuge Headquarters and Visitor Center are located on Highway M-77 approximately 3 miles north of Germfask, Michigan and 15 miles northwest of Curtis, Michigan.
Seney Wildlife Refuge-One of the best wildlife excursions you can make is to the Seney National Wildlife Refuge, managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Seney is a photographers delight - bring your camera!
Seney National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1935 for the protection and production of migratory birds and other wildlife. The refuge is composed of a rich mosaic of marsh, swamp, bog, grasslands and forest, with nearly two-thirds wetlands. Today, it protects habitat for threatened and endangered species, as well as a variety of wildlife.
A diversity of wildlife species utilize the refuge with over 200 bird species, 26 fish species and 50 mammals recorded. This diversity of wildlife is maintained through wetland, fire and forest management. On a quiet summer's eve, one has only to stop and listen to hear the soft whisper of wings and the symphony of sounds echoing from the marshes.
VISITOR CENTER. The Visitor Center at the Refuge is open seven days a week from May 15 to October 15. Hours are 9:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. The building is loaded with exhibits on wildlife history, habitat, ecology and management. A Seney National Wildlife Refuge orientation slide show is shown every half hour from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This show introduces viewers to the variety of wildlife found on the Refuge, as well as management techniques. The photography is stunning! The center is complete with a natural history book store and children's touch table.
