Cabins along Mackinaw Straits
Cabin location is spectacular! Beautiful view of Lake Michigan and the Mackinaw bridge from the beach. The cabins need some attention but for the cost per night, you won’t find a better location along the Straits. Wilderness State Park, Mackinaw, Headlands Dark Sky Park, a lighthouse and multiple other sights are close by. Or go right outside your front door and enjoy the lake and beach.

Very sad representation of LTBB
It was a very sad experience for me beautiful scenery that was the best part. Unfortunately, the one cabin had no heat at all and we were in the 40’s the cabins were absolutely filthy for someone to charge a $15 cleaning fee. You would think that they would actually clean the cabin.

Not the cleanest and the cabin is put together as basically as possible. Amenities are lack luster if present at all, but the heat does run well and keeps the cabin warm. Bed fairly sleep-able. View of the bridge is pretty great, we saw the northern lights our second night here.

Anniversary Trip
The Location and grounds are amazing! Beyond our expectations! My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary to visit the island. The cabins have so much potential but could use a deep cleaning. Basic amenities but comfortable nonetheless the beds are nice. We would love to visit with friends during warmer months & prepare a little better with some of our own cleaning products & items from home. I'd suggest bringing a small rug from home for the bathroom - a hanging toiletry bag - and kitchen items. You cannot beat the price and location!

Quiet and beautiful
The scenery and outdoor space of this property are superb! The cabin was as described, basic amenities. It was warm when we visited and having better screens would have greatly improved our stay as many bugs wanted to share the cabin with us. Overall a pleasant stay.

Unbeatable view
Really beautiful setting. The beach is gorgeous and the stars were lovely. The cabins are in decent shape, but could use a good cleaning. Make sure you bring soap, towels, bedding, toilet paper, pillows, etc. treaty the experience like camping with better shelter. Loved it though, and would definitely book again.

Perfect Paradise
Such a great place to camp. If you don't mind bugs that come along with camping (they show up here and there) then these cabins are perfect with their indoor plumbing, refrigerator and microwave. The beach is gorgeous, just bring water shoes. This is a hidden gem and we had a great time!

Beautiful n serene. Weather couldn’t have been better. So glad we read reviews n knew to bring the water shoes with all the rocks. Good news, they measured windows n front doors for screens and new windows while we were there!!! Definite must n will certainly improve the cabins.

Loved staying at this cabin! The hosts left plenty of wood that was covered by a tarp so it was dry. The beds were very comfortable. There was one roll of toilet paper provided (be sure to bring additional if you plan on staying more than a few nights) and plenty of dish soap. We could not get the heater to work but we read the reviews and knew this may be an issue so we brought a small heater. FYI…if you have small children, the hot water is extremely hot! Like scalding hot! The water pressure was good. There were screens on three of the windows so you can open them for a cross breeze. As per the reviews we knew to bring water shoes and so glad we did as it is very rocky. When we called to get the code to unlock the box for the key the host answered and was very pleasant. Beautiful sunsets! Beautiful weather! A dry place to sleep when it rained! What more could you ask for? We had an awesome time!

Awesome experience!
4.5/5! My family had a very nice time! Hosts' responses could have been more prompt to answering some preliminary questions before our booked date, but we got everything we needed in the end and everything was smooth. Cabins were easy to get into, land was beautiful, but beach is pretty ROCKY, beware. Gorgeous view and property, though. Am definitely booking again!

Read the directions
Getting into the cabins was a little difficult. This was not due to the Host’s error, but rather my own. Be sure you call the correct number to get the key box codes. The cabins were beautiful, and the view of the lake was wonderful even in the 35 degree weather. The proximity to Mackinac Island and Mackinaw City provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy some restaurants if that’s your speed, and the trails in the park are a beautiful place to hike. Couldn’t ask for more, especially for the low price!

Beautiful location
Location was amazing! The sounds of waking up to waves hitting the shores was relaxing. Cabins didn't smell well - pretty musty. One cabin heater would not light which led to a chilly night. Otherwise, was a great time with family. Thank you!

The cabins have a beautiful view of Lake Michigan and the Mackinaw Bridge. They had very hot water which was nice for doing dishes. We also enjoyed the fire pit near the beach. The cabins could use a little TLC but would definitely stay here again.

Cozy Fall Weekend
We had a great weekend at the Mackinaw Straights Cabins. We enjoyed being close to great hiking and biking in Wilderness State Park and loved the location of the cabins right on Lake Michigan. Our toddler (almost 2 years old) loved waking up at the lake each morning and throwing rocks in the water. The beach is perfect for rock-admiring and walking. We enjoyed fires with the wood provided (that is chopped & covered thankfully, so was dry despite the damp weather), and bought some kindling at the Trading Post down the road to get it started. Upon past reviewers' recommendations, we brought a lighter, extra tp, and our own utensils, in addition to bedding, and we had all we needed. Well, we also brought an electric kettle + coffee press to get the mornings started right. What a beautiful location to visit; thank you for sharing it with us!

Would stay here again
Great location. We are not big tent campers so this gave us a warm, dry place to enjoy and with the storm that blew across the straights on Saturday night, we were happy to be in a cabin. Great place for rock hunting along the beach. Close to beautiful trails in Wilderness SP. McGulpin Point Lighthouse was educational and fun to visit. Emmet County has a couple of discovery trails where you walk the trail, read interesting historical information and use your phone to hear a narrative on your location. Host was very responsive with the code to access the lockbox.

Great location…
The cabins are basic with a fridge , microwave , shower and a place to rest your head. The location is right on the sandy beach of Lake Michigan with plenty of rocks and shells to explore. Having a campfire her and listening to the lake was very relaxing. We had kids ages 4-12 and they all enjoyed the beach and swimming. The sunrises and sunsets were stunning . Overall we had a great time and would come back again.

Unresponsive and hard to reach host
If you dont mind not hearing from your host about the keybox code to get into the cabins after calling, emailing, texting, and messaging through Hipcamp multiple times on your way to the cabin, then this is the right place. Couldn’t believe how unresponsive the host was; further, how unapologetic and nonchalant he was after finally getting a hold of him. He could just proactively send you the keybox code but doesn’t. Cabins are super basic and not the cleanest but the surrounding lakefront scenery made up for it, I guess.

Lake Michigan Bliss
Loved the private location. It was great to sneak away from all the hustle and bustle to this slice of heaven with a fantastic view of Mackinac Bridge. Our daughter loved rock hunting and dipping her toes into the lake. We will definitely be back! The cabin was outfitted with what we needed for our stay. Beds were comfortable and the host was prompt about answering with the lock box code.

We’d definitely vaca here again!
Loved the cabin. Husband wanted to camp in a tent, but we found this and it was a perfect compromise. Rugged enough for him, yet with great amenities to make vacationing easy for me. We would definitely come back. This was our first time booking through hip camp so had several questions and they were very good at communicating. Both cabins have a queen and a twin bed, small table, sink, fridge, and microwave. It’s about 15 min west of mackinaw city and next to wilderness state park so you can enjoy all their trails and beaches. The cabin had firewood and has a great area for a campfire. Picnic table feels a little wobbly, but we brought our own chairs and it also has other plastic patio chairs to use so had great outdoor space. There is an adorable rock beach. Bring water shoes and enjoy the beach for hours. Has the best rock skipping stones of anywhere we’ve been. Water is very clear and our kids (12 & 15) snorkeled for hours looking at rocks, shells, and tiny fish. Water is perfect depth for kids to swim. First day too many/high waves, but next two were perfect calmness to swim. There are two trees that were perfect for hammock and husband relaxed in between fire and beach all afternoon. Cecil Trading Post a few miles away rents kayaks and bikes. We rented a kayak and they were very helpful. They also sell pizza and ice cream, along with other groceries. Suggestions: Being a fan in summer, extra tp, lighter for fire pit, and lots of bug spray. Get code prior to arriving bc we didn’t have great cell signal once there. (Which was great— needed a break! ) You will have a great time!

We had a wonderful stay! The only downside is the water is very rocky, so not good for swimming. The plus side is there is a sandy beach down the road, it would be even more amazing if the host could dredge the rocks out for onsite swimming.
