My neighbor has raved about the hospitality of the new owners, the beach unit views, and the value of this place for years. After listening to how wonderful her family's experience has been I was excited to finally make a reservation for our family.However, when I called to get rate and availability info for next year, the gentleman I spoke...

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.

The cosy cottages are pleasant. Even those not facing the water are within a few steps. The pool and jacuzzi are pleasant when the lake is too chilly. There is a fire pit and wood for fires on the beach. Pets are accepted. You don't have to worry about the room next door being too obnoxious. A change from your... More

If you are looking for a fancy, high class hotel..this isnt it. However, if you want to pack the kids and dogs up and have a 'camping' feel without the tent, this is the place! My husband and I have been going for years. We take our golden retriever who loves to play in the lake. We make a fire,... More

Had a standard cabin with two queens, fridge and microwave...this was not a full kitchen with stove, which was irrelevant for my needs but surprising in a cabin. Reasonable price and decent setting. Not right on the beach,but just a two minute slow walk. The beach was narrow compared to many waterfront properties, but certainly wide enough for relaxing and... More

When we come to Mackinaw, this is the place that we stay! Usually our entire family stays but it just didn't work out this year. My husband,my son and his dog, and myself stayed this year for the weekend of September 12-14. Russ and Maxine are wonderful people. Maxine even remembered some health issues that I have and asked how... More

Started by being greeted poorly. Went to the cabin and it was smaller than expected. Dirty bedding. Mold in the bathroom. When we spoke to the front desk about getting clean bedding she was rude. The only kind person there was the maintainence guy. We came here looking for a nice place for our family. Did not get that!

I am sorry you were not happy at the Beach House. After checking in you tore the beds apart and complained of dirty linens. When the head housekeeper came to the room to see what the problem was all that was found was lint on the mattress pads which were replace and the beds remade. The carpets had been cleaned... More
