Stop for a stay here in our cute downtown cottage which now sleeps 9. Close to the river, Mackinaw Bridge, boating, camping, fishing, hiking, biking, restaurants, stores and State Park. Cozy accommodations.

The space

This is a quaint cottage consisting of 2 large bedrooms, a nice sized living space, separate dining room, huge country kitchen, large bath and a spacious backyard. One bedroom has a queen bed and twin bed, the other bedroom has a double bed, living room has a pull out couch so you can sleep 7 comfortably! We just added A/C units for the 2 bedrooms so it is now more comfortable for sleeping!
We have a flat screen HDTV so if you have ROKU you can bring your device and watch your favorites! We have internet but no cable and only get 3 stations with our antennae. We find most people don't watch much TV when up here as there is so much to do outside and in the neighboring communities. We are only 15 min to Mackinaw City, the Mackinaw Bridge and the ferry that takes you to Mackinaw Island! Our house is very close to the walkover bridge that crosses the river and leads to downtown. (access to the bridge is in the ball field parking lot almost directly behind the house next door.) Once over the bridge, you are very near the local brewery and Dairy Queen! A jungle gym playground is also just a few houses south at the end of C Street.

Guest access

We have allowed access to the laundry room which leads out to the backyard. And for overflow sleeping we just added another sleeper sofa (queen sized) in that space. It's got doors to give you privacy and is perfect for teens to crash!

Interaction with guests

We don't live in the same town anymore but have a relative that can come by for any emergency and we are always just a phone call away!

We also reserve the right to enter the house at any time with or without notice. Sometimes we have to drop something off (esp since we don't live in that city) or take something from the house. This rarely happens but in the off chance that we need to come in, we want to be up front and let you know. We will try to contact you beforehand and will try to come when you are there. We will never come during sleeping hours (of course) or too early or too late.

Other things to note

We have local maps in the cottage as well as an Information sheet to look over when you arrive.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 4PM

Our biggest rule is that we provide beds for each paying guest. 2 to a bed just like a motel. So if 4 people book with us, we provide 2 beds. If you want to use the pull out couch, we are ok with that, but you will have to bring your own linens, or sleeping bag. We also only offer 1 bath towel per guest for their stay. If you want a clean towel every day, please bring some from home. Please make sure all dishes are washed when you leave. Take shoes off at the door if it's raining out. No smoking in house and only guests who are registered allowed to stay overnight. Just treat our home as you would your own. That's it!

Jane's place is pretty large and comfy. We stayed for 2 days while visiting Mackinac Island and it was perfect for relaxing.

Quaint little house in a small town. We stayed over labor day and visited Mackinaw. We discovered there wasn't a lot to do in town, but there were a few shops and a farmer's market. Nice quiet area and close to all of the local buzz. Clean house and works well for large groups. Only down side was eight adults and one bathroom haha!

The cottage was very clean and spacious for 6 adults. Location is great and near mackinaw city. Kitchen has all the amenities you would need. There is a fire pit at the back side with some chairs to relax. The host had great suggestions for side trips as well. Overall a wonderful place to stay.

The house was clean and everything functioned. Minimal amenities. House is good but old with a few old house quirks. I would recommend it but don't expect luxury and you will be happy.

Had a nice stay in Jane's cottage. Very clean. Well planned accommodations, and very roomy for 6 adults. Sweet little porch to sit after an evening of walking to the shopping area across the river. Easy connect wifi for all devices everyone seems to need! Not much reception for TV watching, but we didn't have any kids, so wasn't really a problem for us.
