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!

The sunrise and sunset were absolutely breathtaking. The cabins were relatively clean with the beach being trash free.

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!

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.

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!

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.
