Stone House is a pleasant, ranch-style home in McMillan, Michigan, just off MI-28. Hosting 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; this home has new furniture and new flooring in living room and bedrooms. Stone House sits on a large plot of land with a fire pit for guests to enjoy (however, in the winter the fire pit might be covered in snow). You will appreciate a fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher and a master bedroom with a California King bed with a wide view of the water. The dining room area seats 6 people around the table and come with 2 breakfast bar stools as well to accommodate guests.

What is nice about Stone House is that the bedrooms are split by the kitchen, making privacy a bit more achievable. Perhaps sharing with another family of 4 is an option. Both bedrooms with twin beds can be converted to kings for your convenience.Just let the office know when you book, so we can have the beds converted upon your arrival.

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.

Great peaceful cottage
Stone Cottage was a peaceful getaway for my family. It has every amenity and odd/end we needed (or forgot to bring), and it began to feel like a home away from home. Beautiful view, nice area for walking, and peaceful waters on the lake. It was a little too cold for full lake use, but still a lovely little cottage.

When your vacation spot starts feeling like home, you can be certain that you've found a winner.  we are thrilled that this was true for you at the Stone House.  With a private dock and a rowboat, swimming on site, and being pet friendly, the Stone House is pretty much perfect.  We hope to see you again!

Great Family Getaway
Clean, Spacious and comfortable... great amenities including the pontoon boat ... Second bathroom off the utility room could do with some upgrades with a door Great spot to unwind no matter what the weather ..

Steven, Stone House is a great property, and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed it as much as we do.  Fishing from the 30' private dock or from the row boat makes for good fun!  Its proximity to Pictured Rocks, Soo Locks, Tahquamenon Falls State Park, and Mackinac Bridge makes for great day trips.  We'd love to work with you again.

snowmobile stay!
We enjoyed the house very much. A couple odd quirks with the electric, a lamp that constantly went off & on and a light in the kitchen that did the same. We told them so they could have it looked in to. Great having the use of the washer and dryer too! So much space here and we enjoyed that, plus the use of the garage for the snowmobiles was awesome! We got about 5-6 inches of snow one night ant they were right there that day to plow the driveway! The trails were a bit more difficult to get to then we thought they would be, and we had to go on the roads quite a bit, but luckily there was plenty of snow to do so! Bonus - a gas station just across the street! Overall, we had a great week at the Stone Cottage! Thank You!

Richard, you are most welcome!  We love when our guests appreciate our properties as much as we do, and you certainly had good snowmobiling conditions.  We hope to see you back again soon.

We enjoyed our stay! It was so nice that the house was furnished with paper goods, laundry detergent and hand soaps at all the sinks! It was nice to have the garage use for our snowmobiles also! One thing we noticed was the flickering of a few of the lights. We had one go off and on at random in the living room. Thank you!

Richard, thanks for the compliments on Stone House.  We make every attempt to be sure that our guests are as comfortable as possible.  We'll be certain to check on the flickering lights.  Thanks for letting us know about it, adn we hope to work with you again soon.

Amazing location
The house is in an amazing location. Perfect for enjoying the outdoors and some privacy to have a fire by the lake. The pontoon boat was really enjoyable we watched otters swimming at night from the boat. There is a back deck to enjoy your morning coffee. One morning while sitting out there we spotted bald eagles flying right above our dock! The house fit all 7 of us comfortably and the beds were very comfy. Everything was clean and arranged. It is a little rough in a few spots but just.looked like a work in progress. We all enjoyed being there thoroughly and look forward to returning.

Misty, we are so happy that the Stone House fits your needs so well.  It is a great location, and seeing the bald eagles and the otters must have simply been joyful!  We look forward to having you as our guests again in the near future.

Great location in the UP!
Stone cottage was a great place to stay and the location was beautiful. Plenty of room in the house for a big group. Did a lot of sightseeing and also enjoyed some fishing and cruising on the lake. A few improvements could be made, but overall, we enjoyed our time and were happy that we could bring our doggie with us!

Chris, we're so happy that you and your pup enjoyed the Stone House.  It's location is perfect for sightseeing, and there is so much to see!  We look forward to working with you again soon.
