With approximately 200 ft. of shoreline on St. Martins Point, your family will be submerged in nature. Surrounded by national forest on one side and Lake Huron on the other, enjoy hiking, swimming, and nearby tourism (St. Ignace, Mackinaw Island). Mackinac Vista is a true custom log cabin (North Arrow) as opposed to milled logs. There is zero drywall in this home. Marvel at the large timbers as you sip your coffee at the breakfast bar in the modern, fully-equipped kitchen.  A gorgeous stone fireplace is duel sided, so if you are in the great room or the coach nook, you can enjoy the views of the flames.

From the backyard, you can see the Mackinac Bridge, Mackinaw Island, and the St. Ignace fireworks every Saturday night in the distance. At night you can see the lights of St. Ignace. Some will gather their friends and enjoy cooking on the propane grill, while folks rest along the wrap-around deck. The national forest is a great feature for those who love to hike and explore. Mackinac Vista sleeps 10 comfortably in beds with an additional 4 (futon and pull-out couch) and has 2 ½ bathrooms.

Linens: Yes, we provide your sheets and linens. Just like a hotel, the beds will be made for you upon arrival. If you are fussy about the thread count of your sheets, just let me know, and I’ll make sure we leave a bed open for your sheets. We have just the basic sheets, pillows, pillow cases and bath towels.

Pets: Pets are welcome! Freshwater Vacation Rentals currently charges $50/per pet for your entire stay. Yes, we do accept dogs, yet we do ask that you please clean up after them both inside and outside the cabin. Plus, if you allow them on the furniture, we do ask that you please bring your own linens/blankets for them to sleep on.  Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we’ll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the water and places to explore. Pet food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed.

Privacy: You can see the national forest on one side of the home and on the backside of the home you can see a neighbor’s home.
