We stayed here in July of 2010 and had a wonderful family vacation. The house is very nicely and comfortably furnished and the grounds are peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed watching the deer from the back deck and our dog loved the large yard and long walks on the beach. We played in Lake Michigan (it is only a very short walk away), rode our bikes on the Betsie trail (not to be missed!), visited the sand dunes, and in the evenings my husband and son battled it out for the title of ping pong champ. On a more practical side, I really appreciated the convenience of the washer and dryer. Overall, it was a great week at a great place and one we feel blessed to have experienced.
