Of course, we think our place is great! More importantly, our guests think so too. Here are some of the notes they've left over the years.

A guest who stayed with us in the summer of 2006 said:
We enjoyed our stay at your cottage very much! I really want to commend you. It had the feel and furnishings of a real home, something which is far from common.

... The cabin (or cottage) is quite large, having two bedrooms as well as a hide-a-bed sofa. The cabin (or cottage) is quite large, having two bedrooms as well as a hide-a-bed sofa. The kitchen and dining room are also quite large, making for a very comfortable stay. A fire pit and BBQ complimented the already fine stay.
Unique Qualities: The cabin had the look and feel (also many of the same furnishings) of a real home. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen furnished to a degree far superior than most comparable cabins. ...
Comparison: less expensive than average ...
A guest who stayed with us in the fall of 2006 said:
We had a great time at your place this last week. It went by so fast, a week is not long enough. Your house is so nice, so new and clean. When we opened the door we both said "Oh my gosh". ... I am so glad I found you.
Many people who visit us are returning home for a family reunion or similar gathering, like this family from Ohio:
... The location was perfect for all of our excursions, which included Mackinac Island, Thunder Falls, Petoskey, harbor Springs, and the Cross in the Woods. We even found time to swim, fish and play in beautiful Mullett Lake. ... P.S. The washer and dryer were a bonus for us!!
One guest liked our place so much that he returned in the fall of 2007 and brought his parents, visiting from another country. He said:
... The place is clean, calm, and gives you the feeling as if you are home. My parents ... really really liked your place. In fact, they want to mimic the same back home ... I would definitely suggest this place to anyone driving up north.
We've had guests from as far away as Germany and India. This note was left by a family from somewhat closer -- Texas -- who visited in the summer of 2009:
... This cozy cabin in the woods was perfect as the beauty of God's lakes, rivers and forests fed our souls. ... Thanks for sharing this little piece of heaven with us.
