We enjoyed our stay at The Beach House the lovely couple who own this are friendly and want you to enjoy your time at their property. The cabins are clean , vintage and give a wee bit of privacy. The beach is so nice and a firepit to enjoy with the other "cottage-ers" is great . You can chat and... More

Our favorite place to stay when we visit the area! Views are breathtaking! Cottages and beach are pristine clean and staff is friendly and accommodating. Walk out of your cottage to a gorgeous sandy beach and Lake Huron. Beach area is so clean and comfortable (with all log furniture) that I kept noticing people from other resorts coming to our...

The beach is clean, you can see Mackinac Island in the distance, and a gorgeous view of the bridge lit up at night. Now, my advice is to be very aware of what you are booking. If you are looking for a simple roof over your head, AC,a quiet private setting, and a great view, then this is it! For... More

This was the perfect place to make a quick getaway up-state! My destination was the Headlands Dark Sky Park, it was just a few minutes drive from here which was perfect. Even with my cabin being right in front facing the road, I have no complaints. The beach is just behind the property and it is GORGEOUS! Not crowded at... More

Sorry to say it had "decent" reviews on Tripadvisor and cute pictures of the OUTSIDE and beach…….. but there is a reason there are NO pictures of the inside of the rooms. Hard to believe the reviews we read were legitimate. Disgusting and so dilapidated we chose not to stay there our second night. We moved to another property that... More

This is the type of place where my parents took us when I was young. Great beachfront, very basic lodgings (but that is part of the charm). Separate cabins make it nice in that you don't need to wake up with your neighbors. Bring your own dishes, dishsoap, and shampoo. Fridge and microwave were included in our cabin. Staff is... More

Remember mackinaw city from years ago? This is an original- with the cabins & cottages from yesteryear. Right on the beach you can enjoy your own little home without shared walls & noisy corridors. Flower lined sidewalks make this little village a one of a kind. Cute, quaint & clean with everything you need for a relaxing getaway. Nothing fancy... More

Stayed 6/30 thru 7/2. Nice place. Wish I coulda taken advantage of the beach and fire pit but the cold rainy weather stopped that. But the room was roomy and clean and its close enough to town. I'd definitely go back.

My family stayed here again for our annual Mackinaw trip. Once again Russ and Maxine are so nice to all of us and very accommodating. Maxine is as sweet as can be and when I mentioned that my 4 grandsons , who can be a little rambuncious, were excited to be there again, Maxine told me that she likes to... More

Clean, simple, comfortable lodging in cabins,cottages, rooms. No fuss or frills. Well maintained property located near activities/attractions in Mack City and proximity to the Island. Owner and housekeeping take pride in the property. Steps from soft sand, clapping waves and tranquility of Lake Huron. Something for everyone; couples, families.
