Nice cabin on a beautiful lake.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is well equiped, everything we needed was there. Clean and spacious, nice to be able to bring our dog. There are many steps down to the lake, which could present a problem if you have bad knees or whatnot. It was ok for us., the reward of enjoying crystal clear turqoise water was worth it. We had the whole lake to ourselves during the week. Bugs were not an issue amazingly. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Wonderful peaceful time in N MI

  • 5 of 5

What a spacious, well equipped cottage. Cozy beds, everything you need in the kitchen, fun games, and outdoor activities. Overall, a great place to rent. Do note there are a significant amount of steps down to the water. However, if you don't mind some exercise to enjoy the beautiful water and sandy bottom of Lake Avalon it's well worth it!

Turqoise Water Escape!

It is a wonderful property with a nice stairway and a lakeside deck with bench. The swimming was excellent, the sleeping was serene and the neighborhood quiet. A really nice place to rent if your wanting to experience direct access to Lake Avalon.

A Beautiful View & a Marvelous Lake (Lake Avalon)

  • 5 of 5

The place was so nice and cozy. Our family lives in Michigan; therefore, our friends and family were able to come visit. The cabin provided a very nice set up outside on the porch, comfortable for everyone. Although it's a two bedroom, one of the couches also folds out to a bed too as we were able to let our Michigan grandchildren spend some time with us. The campfire was perfect to sit around and make s'mores with our grandchildren. Tom & Tommie Wolff live right across the lake and allowed us to use their pontoon boat as we were able to enjoy this crystal clear absolutely beautiful lake. We were able to bring both our dogs which was a relief as we were gone a week and them two also got out and swam. A row boat was provided with the cabin rental so early in the morning and we fished and fished, it was absolutely peaceful! The cabin was perfect, EVERYTHING you need to accommodate your kitchen needs. We stayed there the last week of June 2017 and it's a place we would definitely return too. Thank you Tom & Tommie Wolff for allowing us to stay.
