This is a wonderful house and location to host a family vacation on Lake Michigan. The house is beautifully constructed, clean, and in excellent condition. The owners go to a great deal of effort to make sure that their guests are comfortable for their entire stay. They provide extensive written directions for operating all appliances, HVAC system, and for beach usage. If you happen to be lucky to have them as your neighbors in the small house behind the beach house, they will personally answer any questions you may have or help you with other issues that may arise.
The house is designed with bedrooms on three floors each having a full bath which gives an extended family plenty of room and privacy. The open side deck and screened-in beach-facing deck are great places to relax and hang out. The beach is well equipped with a number of chairs as well as a fire pit.
For children, besides the L. Michigan activities, the Double JJ Resort nearby (15-20 min drive) offers a number "cowboy-oriented" activities for children including a petting zoo, craft projects, and horseback riding. You can also catch a rodeo if your timing is right. The golf course at the Double JJ is beautiful but quite challenging.
Only downside, is that the WiFi is a bit weak and slow. (But why not disconnect for a day or two?) If you do need a better internet connection, you are better off traveling into Montague and using the free WiFi at the Book Nook and Java Shop on Montague's main drag.
