Guestbook comments from the owner

“Perfect Family get away!”

Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2017

Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with our kids and grand kids. The property had panoramic views of the lake being on a pointe. Rented a pontoon boat at the nearby Dodge Marina, able to dock it right in front of the property. Great location with easy access to US23 and downtown Alpena. Enjoyed all of the amenities offered including the fire pits, horse shoes, paddle boats and gas grill. The home was very clean and neat and more than enough room for the 10 of us that stayed there. Enjoyed the many views of the lake it had to offer. We will definitely stay there again!

Very quiet and great location on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Nice home situated right in the middle of the lake. Plenty of room for a large group. Loved that the home was at the bottom of a already quiet street. Sitting outside or having a fire was very enjoyable. Boat ramp right next to the house with a great dock at the property! Would recommend this place for sure!

Wonderful Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 5 children truly loved this vacation home. We were blessed with awesome weather the entire week, so we were able to enjoy the lake and be outdoors every day. The lake is crystal clear and quite shallow in the front of the house, so kids can do a lot of swimming. My grandkids spent hours trying to catch minnows and jumping off the dock. Be sure to bring water shoes because there is a good amount rocks in the water. There is a paddle boat available and we used it often. There is also a nice swing set, and tree swing. As for the adults, the yard is pretty big, so we used the horseshoe pit and brought some yard games. There are also 2 fire pits and plenty of chairs provided. Every night we lined our chairs up and watched the most spectacular sunsets.

As for the house itself, it is great and family friendly. The kitchen is very functional and there is a lot of storage space, pots, pans and utensils. There is also enough seating for 12 people. We especially loved that bed linens, towels and beach towels were provided.

There is a marina close by that rents fishing boats, pontoon boats, jet skis and paddle boards. We took advantage of this and rented a pontoon boat. You can pull it right up to the Pointe dock for easy loading and unloading.

On the second floor there is an outdoor deck overlooking the lake. It's a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee, listen to the birds and enjoy the serenity. Another cool feature is that because the house sits on a point, all windows have a lake view.

Tricia, the owner, is very easy to work with. She is a wealth of knowledge about the area and what it has to offer. Also, she is very good about returning phone calls and texts!

We loved the Pointe Alpena and definitely would love to return!

Fantastic home and location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adult couples and 2 children stayed 4th of July week. We were blessed with fantastic weather and this home is the perfect location. There is plenty of room to spread out, lots of sleeping space and everything you need. We love that towels/linens are provided. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking. We appreciate the air conditioner for the 3rd floor which helps things stay cool. Our grandchildren love the swing set, swing over the lake, and paddle boat. Horseshoes are also available and with the fire ring we had a fire every night. We love the privacy of The Point and access to the boat launch close by. Tricia is awesome to work with and always responds promptly. She also had great suggestions for activities in the local area. We love this home and can't wait to stay again!!

This is the second year in a row I've stayed at this home for our summer vacation, and I will definitely return. I love the layout of the house, plenty of room to be comfortable...and the views of the lake are fantastic. Thanks for sharing your home, Tricia!
