“Too Rustic for me”
Reviewed July 2, 2009

On the plus side, the cabin linens were clean, and the beds were comfortable.
On the downside..the bathroom carpet reaked of urine. The tv is an ancient model with primative cable. The tv shuts down at 1am..mysteriously every night. We had to buy an extension cord because the dimly lit light above our beds and the tv occupied the majority of the outlets. There is no air conditioning. We were told that the rooms had ceiling fans and a box fan in each unit. Nope..no ceiling fan, and the box fan was a 12 inch one. Thank goodness we brought ours from home so we could at least breathe while we slept. The shower went from cold to boiling on it's own and we had great difficulty trying to adjust it . There was no soap holder in it..so where to put the soap?? The lake was as described "30 feet from the cabins"..but bear in mind that the Lake is very low, hence lots of rocks to get to the water. There were no dressers or closets, so the only place you could put your clothes was on hooks that hung from the front door and the bathroom door. If you like it this rustic, may as well take a tent.

Looking for a cabin, had two children with me 13 and 12. Cabin owners were friendly with smiles and helpful. Cabin was clean, one room two full beds. Towels, linens, and soap included. Beach nearby (although rocky and muddy), reasonable rates, great view of Big Mac and on Lake Huron. Minutes from downtown and I-75. Coffee in am, and marshmallows at night by a bon fire. Small place, but nice get-away. Will go back again.
