Should have expected bad things in Feb when I called for reservations. The owner seemed grumpy then and got worse. We arrived on a Monday and weren't happy that we weren't getting a beach front cottage that we had discussed. She went as far as to tell us to get out if we didn't like it and that she didn't need our business We had no other accommodations so we checked in to a cottage with a view of other cottages and major road noise. We had just completed a 2500 mile trip from AZ and were treated like this. Tuesday morning we found a room at the Driftwood in St. Ignace, MI and made reservations for the Wednesday and Thursday nights. We didn't get back from our days activities until almost 10:00 PM Tuesday and being considerate I waited till the next morning to inform the owner of our leaving. The owner then informed me that she would be charging me for that night which meant that she wanted me to pay for a night that we weren't staying due to dissatisfaction with the place. The bank took care of that issue. The cottages are dilapidated and should probably be condemned for outdated electric wiring. We were told not to try to heat anything in the microwave while using any other appliance. They advertise a Kitchenette but provide nothing to cook with. When I complained about the pillows I was told they were brand new even though they were maybe an inch thick. of the 2 chairs provided for sitting one was torn and both were rickety. I can confirm that the beds are very uncomfortable as other reviews have stated. If TripAdvisor would allow it I would give this place a zero.
