Beautiful View from this house!
We loved the location and the view! The pots and pans hanging from the ceiling are a bit high for shorter people to reach and same with some of the dishes on the top shelf. I could only reach the 2nd shelf and lower shelf... not a big deal as that was all I needed to reach. It was a wonderful place to stay and we throughly enjoyed ourselves. We used the beach at the Cheyboygan State Park as the shore at the cottage is extremely rocky.


Pat, we're so glad that you throughly enjoyed yourselves!  One can not beat a property with a great view.  We'll see if an adjustment can be made to the pot rack.  We'd love to have you come back again.

Very pleased with our stay at Huron House! Spacious, clean, updated inside with everything we needed. Gorgeous views of the lake and private secluded beach area with a fire pit! Only thing I would have liked was more comfortable deck furniture to truly enjoy sitting out around the gas fire pit in the evenings. Definitely our favorite place while traveling around Michigan.


Alison, we love that Huron House was your favorite place that you stayed while traveling around MI.   Sitting by the fire pit and looking out over the lake is the perfect way to spend a summer evening, and we hope to you come back so that you can do it again.
