Stayed at the Hinchman Acres Resort because they offer cottages and tube rentals all at the same location. Loved the cottages. Ours had a screened-in porch as well as an area for a fire outside with BBQ and picnic table. We sat by the old campfire at night and talked about the good old days. Cottage had everything you needed. We requested some items that were missing and they delivered them immediately. Location right on the Au Sable river. Free fishing, game room, basketball court and many others things to keep you busy. Walking distance to town. Wifi worked fine but I did not come to Mio for the Wifi. Front desk was great. Greeted me by my first name when I came through the front door even though I had never been there before. Stayed the night and then got up to rent a 4 passenger tube with our friends. Great process for handling the 4 of us. They have got the process down pat. Very good equipment. They drive you to the river and then picked you up when you are done. Had a wonderful time. We will return.

Room Tip: Look at the cottage locations online and let them know what you want.

Pros: The cabins were stocked with everything we needed, such as being, towels, dishes, pots and pans.

The resort has lots to offer,but we didn't use any of the extras outside of the cabin.

The floors were covered in a new laminate and were very clean.

Cons: There was a strong urine smell in the bathroom - YUCK!

No wifi. :(

The bathroom sink was coming apart from the wall. There was a large crack in the shower plastic.

Stayed: May 2015

Stayed last weekend at Hinchman Acres (cabin 11). The cabin was very clean and updated. Had everything we needed. Good Bed, wood stove, fire pit (stocked with wood), TV with good reception to catch up on the games, kitchen....etc. Thought it was real bargain and plan to stay again. Had we brought the wives, they would had been just as comfortable. Good Job Hinchman!

This resort advertises free wifi.......so when our cabin couldn't get a signal, we decided to go for a walk....yep, two cottages down, we get a wifi signal. They "cleaned" our cabin while we were tubing. Sprayed a lot of Lysol and then buttoned up the small space to the point when we walked into it, none of us could breath. One of our guests had such a bad reaction, she had to stay at a nearby motel for the duration. I do believe if you are one of the lucky ones to get a cabin that actually has free wifi and you check in after the cabin has had a chance to dissipate the spray, you will enjoy your stay......but upon bringing these issues up to the office, they seemed like they didn't care. The hotel or the campsite across the street seem to be the best bet. We will definitely be back, but not to this place.

Room Tip: Do not choose cabin 5, no wifi, and your charcoal grill that is too close to the cabin will make the whole cabin smell like charcoal and lighter fluid. We didn't even bother using it the second day and went to breakfast at a local nasty restaurant.

We stayed for 2 nights in mid-may, and thought this was a very nice and well run resort, set in lovely grounds, next to the Au sable river.

Our visit was primarily to see Kirtland`s Warbler, and this place is perfectly situated for it - literally a 2 minute drive across the river to the ranger station. where their tour commences, so you cant get any closer.

We had booked a small 1 bedroom cabin, but were upgraded to a larger 2 bedroom cabin by Erika, the owner, who was lovely and helpful throughout

The cabin was great, with a full kitchen, and all appliances including a full-sized cooker and fridge/freezer. It was spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. It even came with an real fire place and firewood provided- which was lovely, especially as this year`s hard winter was still not over!

Entertainment wise, there was a good choice of TV channels and free wifi , but best of all, for us as birders ,were the eye-level views of birds just outside the windows, just a few feet away.

Two other Brits we met on the tour, said their motel accommodation in Mio was more expensive and only just "OK"- by contrast we found Hinchman`s was great value and a great place to stay, and we would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Contact the owners in advance for advice on indivual cabins, as we did- they were very helpful to us.
