LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION....Only 30 minutes from the Mackinac Bridge, the Merry Mullett Lake House is an old school, RUSTIC family cottage.  It's not fancy. It's not luxury. The summer price is based on its location and the deep, premier all-sports lake a part of northeast Michigan's Inland Waterway. At this old-school cottage, you will have access to a 60 foot private dock just outside your back door.

Inside, Merry Mullett has slanted floors, which some claim feel like the Mystery Spot.  It is not ideal for people with vertigo or any balance concerns. It is NOT handicap accessible.

What do we mean by old school? The kitchen appliances all work, yet they are classic, or more often referred to as dated. The toilet in the main bathroom sits on a wood slab. The screens are stapled into the windows or taped. The mattresses feel like a step up from camping.  You are coming to the Merry Mullett Lake House for the view, the gorgeous outside deck sitting on the water and being just feet from Mullett Lake. 

Located on popular Mullett Lake, this home sleeps 6 maximum, having 3 bedrooms and 1 ½ bathrooms and 2 tight parking spaces. With picnic table, 2 deck areas, lawn chairs, and a gorgeous view, guests will enjoy their time relaxing and resting after a long day of fishing, boating, and swimming. The propane grill on the property will also speed dinner along, while the dogs and kids play in an open area. A private 60 ft. dock also accompanies the property.  PLEASE DO NOT MOOR YOUR BOAT ON THE DOCK, THERE ARE BUOYS PLACED BY THE DOCK TO TIE OFF YOUR BOAT. However, the dock can be used for short periods of time, going to the bathroom, stopping to pick up lunch, to fish, etc...


Rails to Trails (take a look) is within steps of the property; feel free to bring your bikes or walk the trails! This cabin is right off M-27, and while the majority of guests don't hear the traffic, we want to be sure you are aware that the state highway is nearby.  Cheboygan, just 8 miles away, is a quaint city, with many historic sites. Golfers will enjoy the courses just a few miles from the property, and hunters will appreciate the populated gaming areas nearby.

Reviews

Merry Mullett Lake House
We enjoyed the mystery spot! :) Actually we loved watching the water from the living room and the sun porch. Only issue we had was the dock was not stable making it very dangerous to walk on, and the queen size bed had a regular size sheet that kept coming off everytime we moved because it was too small for the bed.. Other then that we loved the charm of the old house and would not mind going back there again...

Patricia, thanks for writing this review.  We are glad that overall you enjoyed staying at Merry Mullett Lake House.  We'll alert the owner to the dock issue and please accept our apologies for the ill-fitting sheets.  Obviously our cleaner was not paying close attention.   We'd love to have you back again.

“This place is right on the lake and you can sit out on that dock all day soaking up the sun and watching the boaters. We had great weather which made it nice to enjoy all of the outdoor seating areas. I had some concerns about a few things and my requests were addressed immediately and I wasn't made to feel like I was being a pain for expressing them.”

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Deborah, there is nothing better than sitting on the dock, catching some rays and watching boaters.  Summer perfection!  We are happy that Merry Mullett Lake House worked out well for you.  Mullett lake is sandy bottomed and clear - perfect for swimming.  It's not fancy but the location can't be beat.    It's only 30 minutes to Mackinac Bridge.  We hope to see you again.

Merry Mullet Lake House was a great experience. It was quite easy to find and I was even sent extra instructions on how to locate the home if I had trouble. I was slightly skeptical about the natural cooling from being right on the water, but the Freshwater Team was 100% right. The house does get much cooler at night. The home was very cozy and came with utensils and plates for cooking and eating. There was even an extra tank of propane for grilling if we needed it. The fire pit was great and there was a general store/gas station and few miles down that had firewood that we used for a couple nights. As Freshwater Team mentions, the floors are a bit uneven, but for my friends and I this was not much of a problem at all. I especially enjoyed waking up, making a cup of coffee and then sitting out by the lake. I would highly recommend the Merry Mullet lake house to any of my friends and would gladly stay

Great setting on the water. Had everything we needed indoors. Wonderful communication from the management company. The only negative would be the beds that are in dire need of being replaced. Otherwise it was a 5 of 5.

Quaint Cabin
The cabin was very cute and had lots of room for its size. Our stay was quite comfortable. We did have a boat - that has its own challenges as mooring and parking are challenging - as was specified in the ad. Small boats are best. Don't bring anything over 19'. Ingenuity goes a long way and we had a perfect stay! Lake is wonderful! Loved it!!!



FRESHWATER RESPONSE:
Geralyn, we are so happy that you had fun at Merry Mullett Lake House, and we're glad that you figured out the boat issue.   Swimming, hiking and biking are right there for your pleasure, plus you are only 30 minutes from Mackinac Bridge.  Perfection!

Relaxing Stay on Mullet Lake
We stayed at this cute lake house in August. The house is conveniently located with a walking path and small village nearby. We were able to launch our boat at the boat launch not far from the house. There is a convenient buoy in front of the house so we were able to leave the boat in for our stay. The cottage has lots of windows which open to create a wonderful breeze throughout the house. Even though the temperatures were in the 90's, the house remained comfortable. We had a great time and had plenty of room for 4.

Brenda, thank you for this wonderful review.  We also love Merry Mullett Lake House.  It's wonderful to swim right in front of the cottage, plus its proximity to Mackinac Bridge and Island simply adds to its charm.

Charming cottage, Beautiful Lake View
My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this lake house. The cottage has a very charming, quaint, vintage, Lost in Time vibe. We had no problems with having no air-conditioning—the lake breeze kept us very comfortable in mid-July, and we often opened all the lake-facing windows on the first floor. The large deck was fantastic for our large family gatherings. Several neighbors where exceptially friendly and welcomed us to the neighborhood while we were there. There is a bike path right outside the driveway that runs either way along the lake. It might be helpful to note if you are terrified of bugs, try not to come during the couple weeks that the mayflies are around. As with any lake property, they can be pretty numerous. I grew up near a Lake so it wouldn’t have bothered me, but the mayflies had already passed when we stayed.

FRESHWATER RESPONSE:

Thomas, we are so happy that you liked Merry Mullett Lake House as much as you did.    Friendly neighbors are always a welcome addition to any cottage experience.  And, yes, sometimes mother nature does like to add her own guests, which are not always as welcome.  We do hope to work with you again!
