Mamas Weekend on the lake...

This property is just as the description states. Great view off the lake 3 bedrooms awesome price. All the amenities of home. Also clean and well kept. I don't feel the pictures do it justice. Believe me it is nicer than the pictures make it look.
Lots of information about local spots. Mary even left a Kroger card on the table so you don't have to sign-up for one. She was great.
We did all of our cooking at the house so I don't have any restaurant details. Although the kitchen is stocked well enough that we didn't have to bring or buy utensils.

The only complaint would be the one bathroom for the six of us, and the 3 streets in the neighborhood with the same name. I don't think either could be avoided though.

We were close enough to Detroit to go in but far enough out to keep down on the traffic from visitors. There is a great outlet mall in Howell. Just an all around great vacation I would totally rent from Mary again. Maybe a smaller group next time because of bathroom space.

A great house to rent. This was not a vacation home for mr but a wonder comfortable place to stay with my dog when my husband had surgery at the Huron Valley Hospital. However, it would be a great getaway spot for anyone with the lake out front, Milford and it's wonderful shopping, food and coffee shops. Also real close to a superb grocery store with an even more superb deli. Owner was very kind and esy to work with. This house has everything you need. So much better than a hotel. Also for the runner or biker, the YMCA in Milford is a great place to go. I found the trail to be very dog friendly.

Lake house for thankgiving

During a recent visit to the Detroit area for Thanksgiving we stayed at this wonderful little Lake Cottage. We are so glad that we chose to stay here, the house was a very relaxing get away from all the high pace lives that we lead and it was great to be close to family for the holidays, but still far enough away for a little rest and relaxation. We needed a pet friendly house and chose this one vs. a hotel and it worked out perfect for us. The landlords were very accommodating for our late arrival and early departure. The view of the lake from the living room was beautiful with swans and ducks visiting often. We could have just spent the whole week at the lake house, but we had football games and a big family reunion to attend. Even the neighbor was very nice and gave us advice on a nice trail for walking our dogs. I would highly recommend this house versus a hotel, it feels so much more comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful fall vacation.

This was a great place to spend a few days. The house
was clean and well kept, and has a great view. We
loved watching out the picture window and viewing
the wildlife. Mary and Peter were very helpful with our
questions about the area and directions to places we
wanted to go to in the Detroit area

Car: necessary

Lovely ranch home located on all sports Lower Pettibone Lake in Milford/Highland, Michigan. The lakefront setting is quite serene with a large amount of state land. Sit on the brick paver patio and watch the sun rise over the lake. This location is convenient to Metro Detroit and is only 15 minutes to Brighton or Novi and only minutes from the GM Proving grounds. All of the western suburbs are a short drive but once you’re here you’ll never believe you aren’t “Up North”. For entertainment there are a number of choices. For golf there are a number of excellent courses nearby including Prestwick Village, The Mystic at Camp Dearborn, Lyon Oaks, Dunham Hills and many others nearby. The area is loaded with park land including Kensington Metro Park, Highland State Recreation Area, Dodge Park and many miles of bike and hiking trails. Shopping venues in Novi and Brighton contrast to the quaint downtown experience of Milford which is also well known for its award winning restaurants.
