My husband and I stayed two nights during Columbus Day weekend in a cottage/cabin at Hinchman Acres in Mio, Michigan. Reasonable and clean accommodations. Older lodging from the 1930s - 1940s. Small vintage cottages are well maintained as well are the grounds. Units are nestled in the trees alongside two fish ponds setback approximately 900 feet from a two-lane highway. Located within walking distance of the Ausable River.
Cottages are more suited for people who enjoy the northern Michigan outdoors. Less desirable for travelers who prefer modern chain motels. However, Hinchman Acres does have the basic amenities. We stayed in unit 15, and it was furnished with electric stove, refrigerator, microwave, television, hair dryer. Units have tile floors with scatter rugs. Owner, Natalie, was friendly, pleasant and accommodating. Kid friendly as there is a small playground.
