Well Kept Log Cabin with a Nice View
We had a wonderful stay at "The Johnson Roadhouse". The cabin was in excellent condition and the owners provided almost everything you need to have an enjoyable stay. The bedrooms are spacious and the kitchen area is spacious and open. The front porch is great for your morning coffee or evening drink. There was always a nice breeze off of the lake. The back yard has a firepit and back patio where u can spend time. Also the Bike path was very nice to have right there in your back yard. Perfect for biking, running, walking etc. It's nice because it's about 50/50 shade and sun. Proximity to Petoskey and Harbor Springs is only a couple miles so it's easy to go to both places. We also had the privledge of meeting the owners, Tom & Pat, who were very nice and accommodating and also very prompt with communications and security deposit refund. This is a perfect place for families with small children as the property has lots of room to play, has a large driveway for biking etc. We did use the little beach across the street in addition to PSP. Surprisingly, the beach across the street was pretty nice. Lake was warm and free of rocks. weeds etc. in the swimming area. Great option if you are looking for a quick swim and don't want to go all the way to PSP. I only have two small critiques of this wonderful cabin. One, which is visible in pictures and on maps, was the road in front of the cabin. I was completely aware of the road before booking this stay. However, the road was extremely busy, especially for up North. At times it's so busy you cannot even cross the road if you wanted to go over to the dock or nearby beach. It has constant traffic all day long. Sat and Sun mornings from 7-9am it was quiet but that was it. But don't misinterpret my comments here. It's definitely not a strong enough reason to pass on this rental. It is a wonderful place to stay and the road is only a minor issue. Last one, and it's more of a suggestion for the owners, is that the listing stated that it has cable/satellite TV. The house was wired for cable, but it was not activated so there was only basic TV (like 5-6 channels). I would suggest updating the listing. Another option if cable will not be added in the future would be to provide a DVD collection of movies for the guests to watch in the evenings when there is not much to watch on the basic channels. Overall, I would highly recommend this rental. We had a wonderful stay!!! Thank you
