We stayed in one of the two bedroom cabins in June. The cabin had plenty of room for the 4 of us, even though we didn't spend much time in the cabin. The cabin was clean and the kitchen was stocked with what we needed for meals. We enjoyed the community fire pit and everyone was incredibly friendly. Great location...

Very nice place to stay. I have stayed at Halfway Lake four times now. Some of the appliances need replaced as well as a few loose chairs but all in all a good place to stay. The cabins are always very clean. Josh and Nicole as well as their employees are always very nice and polite.

Very nice clean cottages. Great location for snowmobiling base, short distance from 498 trailhead. My wife and I came up for a relaxing snowmobile weekend and we found it here. Josh and Nicole are wonderful owners/hosts that are up on trail conditions and local places to see. We'll be back next year!

Nicole was the sweetest and super helpful throughout the booking process. Everyone booked around us were also very nice. There is a sense of community at the halfway lake cottages....

Their website says they have wifi but it's pretty much none existent. I had some work to complete before Monday and I had to go into newberry to complete it. Also make sure you read the rental agreement they do not accept credit cards even though you hold the cabin with a card and if you cancel they charge your...

Thank you for your review. We are happy to know you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return. Internet in the UP isn't always the most reliable especially in secluded areas such as ours. As far as the CC, we typically request/receive a down payment to secure reservation. When last minute reservations are made- within a week of...

We love this place and hope to return soon. The owners are Wonderful people and bend over backwards to make you comfortable. Close to many great activities. If you are visiting whitefish point, tahquamenon falls, or the surrounding areas we recommend strong here.
