Guestbook comments from the owner
We all wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay in your wonderful beach home for our vacation. My husband still keeps saying “you couldn’t have found a more wonderful place.” Our first trip to Michigan was definitely memorable. Can’t believe we’ve never been there before. It’s so beautiful up there. We’ll take the beaches up there any day to the ocean now!



Hopefully we had left everything the way we were supposed to. Definitely would consider coming back someday!

CLEAN, VERY NICE PROPERTY WITH WONDERFUL OWNERS

  • 4 of 5
The Picklers are the best owners we have ever dealt with and we have rented quite a bit over the years. They had excellent communication with us before the trip and promptly mailed us our deposit back after our trip. They have put a lot of thought into this home as a rental and it shows. The home is very clean and has everything you need for a vacation at the beach. We wish there was a better view of the water but you are very close. Owners are extremely accommodating in allowing you to use their deck for their other property which does have a magnificent view.

LOVELY DUNE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
To begin, we enthusiastically agree with all previous reviews of this cottage and its owners, the Picklers. We have stayed at numerous cottages along Lake Michigan and the Atlantic Ocean and this was BY FAR the most pleasant experience with cottage rental. The owners were friendly, informative, quickly responded to e-mails, and thoughtful. The cottage was well-appointed, spotless, organized for guests' comfort (lots of blankets, new towels, terrific laundry room!!) Each window of the house has a charming view of dunes, woods, pond, Lake Michigan (through the trees across the street). For the duration of our stay, we used the beach access from the owner's cottage (a 30 second walk). The beach stairs, while steep and numerous, are in pristine condition, although I wouldn't recommend this access to families with toddlers or senior citizens. The private beach was beautiful and the only annoyance was the occasional appearance of a neighbor's large, overly-friendly dog (running off with our kids' sand toys and chasing them into the water). We took a fun day trip to nearby Michigan's Adventure, ate at The Hearthstone in Muskegon (highly recommended!!) As a family of 6, with 4 children ages 5-12, we happily recommend this cottage to other families.

SIMPLY PERFECT.... :)

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Wayne and Tina's dune home with our 4 young children.....it was lovely to say the least! The house is newly remodeled and immaculate! Loved that we didn't feel like we were staying in someone else's dirt! :) We cooked our meals at the house most of the week and the kitchen is very well stocked with good basics! The private beach is beyond awesome! We spent the majority of our 7 days doing nothing but digging in the sand and swimming! We maybe saw 10 people walking the beach ALL WEEK! It was so private and peaceful! It did rain a couple mornings so we explored Muskegon. There is plenty of fun things to do but it is not touristy at all which was a BIG plus for us! Wayne & Tina provided us with lots of ideas of things to do! The children LOVED exploring a WW11 Ship and submarine! We got to watch kite surfers one windy day! That was really cool! There are lots of nice clean parks too! Even the public beaches were very clean with only a few people on them. We talked to a man from Grand Rapids who said that he thinks Muskegon has the nicest, cleanest beaches in West Michigan! This was definitely the perfect place for our family....a great place to unwind, relax and enjoy God's creation!
A BIG thank you to Wayne and Tina!

PEACEFUL RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
We had an outstanding vacation at this dune home. Owners, Tina and Wayne are very hospitable and quite knowlegeable about the area. The home is pristine and peaceful and exactly as described - photos are quite accurate. A very well maintained property in a peaceful neighborhood of dune cottages.

We enjoyed our two week stay with our two daughters and spent most of the time on the beach or on the deck. You don't get very much of a view of the lake due to the heavy foliage, but it's only a short walk through the woods over a small dune or using the private stairs of the owners cottage across the road. The beach is fabulous and quite private and butts up to about many acres of wooded dune beach with no other homes for several hundred yards to the north.

We enjoyed the proximity to Muskegon, yet felt as if far from civilization.Highly recommendd for families and/or retirees. Thanks for a great stay.

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I stayed here for a long weekend, and our only complaint is that we didn't stay longer! The house is gorgeous, the views are breathtaking, and the owners are not only pleasant, but also knowledgeable of the area. The beach is a short walk away and provides picturesque sunsets. We highly recommend staying here.

A GREAT PLACE TO STAY AND RELAX!

  • 4 of 5
My family and another family stayed in this cottage and it was a great time. The **private** beach is very close and it is absolutely gorgeous. The furniture is all modern and the kitchen appointed nicely. We had a great time and hated leaving.
