From a different era

Rooms and Amenities

Somewhere in Time Cottage has the amenities and charm you need for a stylish vacation.

Experience the Charm of a Different Era

Built in 1926, Somewhere in Time Cottage is a centrally-located Mackinaw City vacation rental that can sleep up to four guests and is within walking distance of everything downtown Mackinaw City offers.

Jennifer's dad Bud Dexel purchased this classic property in 1986 and aptly named it "Somewhere in Time." It is one of the three original houses left on the strip, and is located on a relatively quiet street on the edge of the historic downtown district of Mackinaw City.
