Fantastic house near downtown Port Austin

  • 5 of 5
My family had a great vacation! The house was as advertised/pictured. The house was clean, well stocked, and we enjoyed having a full house to ourselves; it was much larger and more comfortable than the beach houses we've rented in the past. The open floor plan for the kitchen/dining/family room was terrific. My son enjoyed playing with his trains on the front porch and running around the large yard. The fire pit is tucked away on the corner of the lot, giving you more privacy.

The house is a short walking distance from downtown Port Austin, and is close to a very nice public beach. We also frequented Port Crescent's day beach (about a 15 minute drive west).

I grew up visiting Port Austin every summer with my family. I love how the town has changed very little over the past 40 years. It has everything you need, but is still a quiet lake town (unlike the towns on Lake Michigan, like Saugatuck). There are multiple playgrounds downtown for kids when you want to take a break from the beach, as well as nearby go-carts, miniature golf, etc. The restaurants aren't fancy, but have above-average food (don't let the appearances deceive you). We love the pizza at Joe's Pizzeria. The Farm (out of town on Port Crescent Road) has a wonderful farm-to-table menu. The town's grocery store is quaint, but if you want a bigger, more traditional grocery store, head to Caseville.

Wayne was easy to work with and we would consider staying at this property again. We highly recommend it to others!

Relaxing and Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5
Clean, quiet, and away from traffic, but within walking distance of beaches, playgrounds, kayak rentals, fishing charters, restaurants, shops, and post office, etc.
Port Austin is far from the casinos, shopping malls, and glitter of the metro area, but if you want to relax, unwind, and recharge; this is the place for you. It's great for kids, great for young parents,and great for seniors.
The photographs accurately represent the property, the property is clean and well maintained, and the owner is extremely helpful.
The Fireside Inn, a few miles west of Port Austin on M25, is worth the short trip - don't be deceived by its outside appearance, it's great.

Great Week in Port Austin

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed the week of July 4th, 2012 and had a really nice, relaxing time. Port Austin is quiet but has things to do if you look for it. The fireworks show was great and we went to Caseville a couple of the days to eat and "beachit". The home is very nice and clean; you can tell it is lived in since it is well maintained and cozy. The owners have taken good care of this home and their decor is indicative of the pride they have in the home.

Good time and strongly recommend.
