Stayed two nights and really enjoyed it. We stayed in a cabin right on the beach which was wonderful. The beach is clean and beautiful and family and pet friendly. The have a nice pool, a shed with sand toys for the kids, a basketball hoop and volleyball net. Also on the beach are picnic tables and swings (like porch... More

We stayed at The Beach House just days after the 4th of July for a little Up North getaway and boy were we pleased!! We stayed with our 2-year-old and two Golden Retrievers and it had just enough space for the five of us. The cottage had 2 queen beds, a kitchenette with a fridge and a decent amount of... More

The Beach House has a unique appeal. Unlike regular hotels or motels, they are a bunch of little cottages sprinkled across the property located right by the lake. The property is well maintained with several amenities to offer such as chairs/swings on the beach, fire pit for late nights, portable grills, indoor pool and hot tub. The free breakfast is... More

I gave this place the full 5 because as pet friendlies go, this place reminded me of staying with family THAT I WANT TO SPEND TIME WITH. Room is a bit small but we had a ton of stuff. Next time, I'd get a cottage on the beach. Wood is set out for a nightly campfire, nice chairs to sit... More

These people are fantastic! They go above and beyond keeping this charming little place clean, fresh and friendly! Little cabins ranging from simple to a little more comforts of home. So cute and cozy! There is beach access for all visitors, spa and pool too. They have a firepit on the beach for everyone to use at their convenience in... More

Perfect if you hate staying in chain hotels. It's a cute cabin on the water with a kitchenette. Clean and comfortable. Provides a shuttle to mackinaw island ferries. Staff is so warm and welcoming. Each room choice is its own small cottage. Indoor pool and spa!! They have a fire pit that guests can light!!

Thank you so much for sharing your cabins with us last summer. Tom and I, our children and theirs, all had an absolutely euphoric, magical, fun, and relaxing time. I grew up in Mackinaw and yours are the only cabins within the city limits that are still on the lakefront and like cabins were in the “good old days.” It... More

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...
