Spent a week at the Beach House, and will definately go back if we are in the area. Wonderful couple running the place. Fresh muffins & coffe in the office every morning with a chance to chat with the hosts & other vacationers. Laid back sort of place, not big, or fancy, but it provides you with everything you need.... More

We spent three nights at The Beach House and enjoyed it. The beach is fantastic, a beautiful spot with plenty of seating options and a fire pit too. We ate dinner on the beach one night and enjoyed some afternoon down time there as well. The grounds were great as well. Our cabin was small, the bathroom very, but we... More

On the spur of the moment, we extended our recent "Pure Michigan" vacation by one night and, on a whim, decided to stay in Mackinaw City. We drove around in search of a hotel on the beach. We stopped at three places to check prices and setting. The Beach House, hands down, was the winner. Great price (pay the extra... More

In the day to day i spend over 200 nights a year traveling for work I.e. Internationally five star hotels. For a vacation it was wonderful and a complete surprise to stumble across this Mom and Pop hotel. Pet friendly, individual cabins right on the beach!! Accommodation is a throw back to yesteryear, pre mid century. Rooms are very clean... More

This place was exactly what we wanted. I personally hate hotels. I wanted the up north feel that I remembered as child. Little cozy, very clean cabins. The staff were wonderful!!! Very welcoming and informative. Location was just off the busy path. And the beach was one of the best in the area. Well taken care and groomed. Bon fire... More

My family and I recently stayed at the beach house. Our overall experience was good. We were very happy with the cleanliness. The location is perfect along with the private beach. We will happily return next year.

We stayed two nights in July. The first day/night our dogs were stressed because of loud noises (people playing basketball 15 ft from our cabin) and the lid of the ice machine being banged over and over, fireworks be set off at the beach. The worst was when I stopped in the office and my husband waited outside with the... More

We rented a cabin for 3 days off the beach and were very happy with the place. The grounds and beach area are beautiful. The cabins are a bit small but they are cabins. They are well maintained and nicely decorated. The owners were very nice and very helpful suggesting great places to eat and sightseeing.

My mother, sister and I recently stayed in the Beach House cabins. The cabin was pristine, the grounds were well manicured and the proximity to the beach was wonderful. Just a few steps from our door we were able to sit on a swing or chairs on the very clean sandy private beach. I didn't want to leave! We also... More

I learned about this place through a pet-friendly website as we were traveling with our little chihuahua. I liked that it was near to town but not in the busyness of town. We opted to pay a little extra to have a unit on the lake and it was so worth it. The cottage was clean and the staff was... More
