I would like to second the previous review, that this place is even better than advertised. It is exceptionally clean and well-maintained. The décor is beautiful and charming, reminding us of staying in a bed and breakfast. We were surprised by how truly well-stocked the kitchen was. We have stayed in other homeaway/vrbo properties and never had as many nice small appliances or pots and pans that were in such excellent condition. The owner was helpful and prompt with booking the property, and I am sure she would have also been very responsive if we had needed anything during our stay....happily though we needed nothing and everything was great throughout our stay. The location is also just as exceptional as advertised. We walked to the beach several times, where three playgrounds are located or nearby. The Riverwalk was closer to the cottage then we expected and made for a beautiful walk to the beach or downtown, which we also did a couple of times. We also spent a couple days each in Ludington and up at Sleeping Bear, both within easy driving distance. We would recommend this cottage to anyone considering vacationing in Michigan and hope to stay there again.
