Our vacation at the house was perfect. The home is comfortable and beautifully furnished. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets, long walks on the beach, eagles flying by, fishing, and relaxing while watching the waves! Though most of our meals were enjoyed at the house, we had great food at Legs Inn. The drive through the Tunnel of Trees was lovely! The information and photos of the listing were exactly spot on! We loved it and have already booked our next trip!!

Great House

This was our family's second visit to this wonderful beach house and we are already looking forward to returning next year. The house has all of the modern amenities and is extremely clean. Having the beach just steps outside the back door, without stairs or a bluff, makes it perfect for the kids. The house is situated on the sandiest and most rock-free portion of the beach. Legs Inn (just down the road) offers an interesting dining option and Harbor Springs is close enough for grocery trips and other restaurants. That said, the kitchen and grill are so nice, that we have only been out for 3 meals in our 2 weeks at this house.

The house was perfect for our family. Open floor plan with all the comforts/amenities of home. The "kids" room was especially delightful for our brood. The view and proximity to the beach unparalleled. The weather was on the cool side for this time of year with highs around 70F for the week but still quite pleasant. What we were not prepared for was "midge" season. They dogged us the entire week and definitely detracted from the overall experience. Not once did we grill or sit out on the deck, and frequently avoided the beach. The numbers were so remarkable that there was literally a constant drone/hum when you stepped outside. My understanding is this epidemic is an annual occurrence, lasting roughly three weeks, typically in May. I would strongly urge future renters to consult an almanac/Punxsutawney Phil to avoid this plague. In spite of this I could only manage to detract one star. The property is just that nice and clearly the homeowners can't control for Mother Nature. I would urge them however to consider giving future renters a break whenever these two winged beauties decide to hatch for the season.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We're so glad you enjoyed the house, but sorry to hear about the midges. They are typically a May occurrence - that's why they're sometimes called Mayflies. It's extremely unusual to have them so late, but because May and June are less predictable than July or August, we discount the rates significantly.

Amazing Property

This home was absolutely amazing! We arrived for a nice 'couples' (2) weekend on Friday and stayed through Monday. The home was exactly as described, and actually offered more than I've seen in other vacation rentals. The house is simply stunning, warm, comfortable, and offers everything you need to enjoy a weekend away. Being able to walk a few steps to the beach, even in December, made the stay even better. All we could picture was bringing our children up for a stay in the summer and how convenient the proximity to the beach is.

The property was clean, well-equipped with all kitchen and bath related items, and just felt like home. It was easy to find, even in its' remote location, and although we had to drive a bit to get into Harbor Springs, it is a beautiful, relaxing drive. Mackinac City is a little closer, and we spent one day exploring the few shops that remain open in the winter. The only downfall is that the famous Legs Inn was closed for the season----had it been open, the convenience of its location (only about 3 miles from the property) would have been quite nice.

During the rental process, the owner was very helpful and answered all of my questions promptly and thoroughly. I really appreciated the ease in booking this reservation.

I would most definitely recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a getaway, regardless of the time of year!!

Lovely, well-stocked home

The house is just as pictured, no disappointments. It is very well designed, nicely decorated and has a well equipped kitchen. The deck is bordered by trees, which isolate the neighboring homes, but the view to the lake is unobstructed. The bathrooms were modern and clean. After staying at 2 other homes on Lake Michigan that were up on the bluff with over 100 stairs to the beach, it was a pleasure to walk down a few steps from the deck and be on the sand. The location is quite isolated, about a 30 minute drive to Harbor Springs or Mackinaw City. There are only about 3 restaurants within a 7 mile radius, so be prepared to cook or drive. We mostly used the grill and had great meals. Overall, it is a beautiful place for a weeks stay.
