Family Gathering Place
Ideal location in Mackinaw City! Close enough to all the action without all the traffic and noise from Main Street. We were able to connect with 4 grandkids who loved the bonfire pit. The adults had the best time playing Euchere in the kitchen as the table was perfect. We had a great time despite a cold rainy week.
2nd stay 10/10 would recommend
Amazing location! In walking distance to the ferry’s. Downtown Mackinaw city!
The cottage is beautiful! Close to the bridge to watch the sunset as well :)
The only thing I’d change is the age of the beds. They’re definitely not the comfiest.
Thank you for your nice review. The mattresses in the 2 main bedrooms are only 2 years old and only see seasonal use. We will check on them this week when we stay there ourselves to be sure no supports are missing.
It was the first time the family visited Mackinaw and we loved every part of it. The location of the place was very convenient and after long days of adventures, coming back to the adorable cottage felt just like home!
We loved staying at this house!! Super cute, very clean, great location! Would recommend to everyone!
Cute cabin, close to everything. Plenty of sleep space. Had issue with heat and property owner was on issue immediately. A wonderful couple came over and fixed the problem. They were full of knowledge on the area and gave great advice as to what to see while we were here. Overall I’d give it 4 stars.
We are just blocks from the ferries to Mackinac Island, miniature golf, a zip line, live music, shopping, restaurants, fudge shops, marinas/boat launches, parasailing, a dark sky park, and Fort Michilimackinac.
And fun day trips include drives down M119 (theTunnel of Trees), Petoskey, St. Ignace and the rest of the U.P. including Whitefish Point, Sault Ste. Marie, and Tahquamenon Falls, and Oswald's bear Ranch.
We love getting the best glazed donuts at the bakery, or breakfast at the Pancake House, shopping on Central or at the Crossings, skipping stones at many public areas on the Straights, and spending a day on the Island.

About Todd and Jacki VanHuis
We bought this property in 2011 after riding by (and ignoring) it for years. Then we spent the next 22 months gutting and remodeling all 3 cottages ourselves in our "spare time" as we live 4 hours away down state. We wanted a place we could enjoy with our children who were growing up and would be bringing spouses and their families up north someday. This place brings us lots of joy as we spend time in our favorite places in Michigan- Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island with our favorite people.

Why Todd and Jacki VanHuis chose Mackinaw City
This property gave us the rooms we wanted to have family and friends stay with us, the space to be outside and have campfires while being just a short walk to town. We are close to the action, but have our own quiet getaway.
What makes this Cottage unique
With 3 cottages on one large property, family can stay with us but have their own cottage. A group of veterans and their wives was able to stay here for a reunion- with a total of 5 bedrooms and daybed on the back porch of one cottage this group had a great week together. The large oaks and maples provide shade and beauty.
