Right on beach

The cabins were decent. They are a bit dated and could use some TLC on the inside. We enjoyed being close to town and the beach area. I could have swore that I read in the book they provide wood for a fire on the beach but when asked he said they don't anymore. So they need to update the book in the room. The bathroom has no exhaust fan so everything is wet after a shower or 2.... even the toilet paper was wet. The shower heads are low for kids and make it difficult for adults to shower. It was nice to be able to access the 3 waterparks in town as a privelage for staying here. We would stay again if we were to come back.

On the beach

Pros: There were individual cabins not a hotel so each cabin had the privacy to stay by themselves or to join others on the beach or in the pool.
Cons: Website showing what is furnished and what is not.
Location: It is located on Lake Huron and within minutes of the UP or the Dark Sky Viewing, McGilpin Lighthouse and other points of interest.
The quaint charm starts the minute you pull on to the property. It is like stepping back to your childhood. The cabin was within a few feet of the beach and everyday families played together in the sand. The multi-generational families that were there played volleyball, canoes, roasted hot dogs on sticks and built sand castles. There were trees if you wanted to sit on the swings in the shade or the beach where you could swim, feed the ducks or Gullies or just sit in a chair and dream as you watched the boats travel back and forth to Mackinac Island. Already planning on going back next year. I did not want the vacation to end and if you are looking for somewhere to remember what it was like when you were a kid and could splash in the water and not care who was looking then this is the place to go.
