My (now) husband and I have stayed at The Beach House twice. Once a couple years ago, and this past June for our honeymoon. The cottages are very dated, and normally i'm not one to like older things, but for some reason I don't mind it here, and it almost feels like a second home. Almost like a 'mom &... More

Absolutely fantastic stay here for our anniversary...the owners are awesome and had lots of tips for dinner and drinks...I would highly recommended this to anyone looking for a cozy quiet stay on beautiful lake huron. We saw swans in the morning and an abundance of stars at night...we will be back!

This beats staying in a tiny hotel room any day. The place was immaculate, and despite being a cottage, I could detect no odors of any kind. It was like coming home, rather than staying in a strange place. The TV station selection was good. I was disappointed I couldn't stay longer. Only negative was the tiny, rather crudely done...

Loved it, had big room off highway but it was very quiet. Huge bed and comfy room. They are a dog friendly motel. We have dogs...The Owners were very nice to us and yes those breakfast muffins are yummy. The place is so cute and has a beautiful beach area. We would stay here again, not the Ritz but we'd...

Our room was on the waters of Lake Huron facing the Mackinac Bridge. You can sit in a chair, watch the ducks or swans go by, and enjoy one of Maxine's home-made muffins in the morning. But the cabins are a bit dated-Retro. While our cabin had a fridge, "kitchen" an overstatement. the stove is a 2 burner hotplate, the... More

This was are first stay here and we wanted something a little "off the beaten path" of the city and found this online. We were greeted by Russ when we checked in and we knew this was going to be a great place to stay right away...Russ made us feel very welcomed and we enjoyed the "down home " atmosphere... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights this past weekend with my daughter, her boyfriend, and her little Pomeranian dog. My husband and I had a large 2 bedroom and the kids had a one bedroom. Worked out great having the extra space plus kitchenette and table and chairs in our larger cabin. Both cabins were super clean.... More

We have stayed in these quaint small cottages for years (4 generations!). Clean and tidy. Kitchenettes but bring your own utensils and dish soap. They have grills but bring charcoal, if desired. Lots of flowers and great landscaping on the entire property. Right on a Lake Huron with a clean beach, bridge view, and nightly fire. Pool (could be a... More

This property is a set of cottages on Lake Huron Old US 23. It is family owned by very friendly people. There was an indoor pool next to the office. It had a private beach that was very well kept. They made provision for us to have a fire at night, if we wanted one. The cabins were rustic but... More

We've been staying at The Beach House since 1982 and have never been disappointed.Every year is better and these owners are more than friendly to us.There were a couple years that we were unable to stay there and jumped at the chance to return.If simple fun is your game,go there and check it out.Clean,quiet,warm and homelike.
