This place was wonderful.I have never stayed in a more relaxing and peaceful place. I would recommended to any of my friends, and to any one that is trying to get away and have a nice time.
Guys weekend, nice to hang around outside. Good view of the lake by the fire. Had to aquire our own wood, but no big deal. 4 real beds, a fold out and a mattress, would sleep ten if you are real good buddies, but we chose to not be and single occupy. ATV friendly community, short ride to the bar/restaurant up the street, damn good food! Great place to hang outside, nice lake to take a pontoon ride on. Would stay again, it's not new, but nice work in proress
I read the reviews for this property carefully, because I questioned the quality of a lakefront property with a boat rental option at $1,000 for a week. It seemed too good to be true! It is.
To anyone thinking of bringing children to Roger's Place, please reconsider. Our children are ages 4 & 2; while they had a great time and would never know differently, as parents we were holding our breath and cringing at the number of safety hazards on the property.
There is a considerable amount of rusty metal, especially outside (tetanus, anyone?). There are a a few sawed-off metal posts and PVC piping sticking out of the ground that have rough edges. The septic tank has been dug up and is "covered" with a section of wood fence draped over the top. The insulation on some electrical cords is cracked, and the copper wiring is exposed. There are no smoke detectors inside.
Our son found a first aid kit; we opened it to discover cough syrup that expired in 1994.
When I inquired about the pontoon rental, the property manager said life jackets were on board for use. He was aware of our children's ages. We ended up brining our own, and were relieved that we decided to do so, because not only are they worn and faded (and should be discarded according to the safety note printed on them by the manufacturer), they were all rated for persons 90 pounds and over. The boat is not equipped with a sounding device as required by law. The fire extinguisher was manufactured in 1999. There is no stated expiration date on extinguishers, but it is recommended that they be replaced after 7-10 years, even if they are fully charged.
The smell that others mentioned is still an issue. It is NOT a wood odor - put your face down on the carpet and you will know where the obvious smell of motor oil is coming from.
The beds are terribly uncomfortable. An air mattress provides better comfort.
The kitchen sponge was old and smelly. The coffee maker was grimy on the inside.
These are some of the more notable issues, but there are many more. I will say if we hadn't rented the pontoon, we would have left earlier - it provided us an escape from the property, which is not what vacation is supposed to be. If I could ask for our money back, I would, but I made the mistake of paying cash, as requested by the property manager.
Spend your money somewhere else. The property doesn't seem to be maintained by people who are thinking of risk management. An accident is waiting to happen there.
Rogers Place is a fantastic cottage for families. We truly enjoyed our stay. My dogs and kids loved it. There were no neighbors until our last night and they were very friendly. Mike was great and helped out with anything that was needed.
Large property, Large cabin but it shows it age and needs a lot of TLC. Carpet needs to be cleaned. Faces East so morning sun is nice, and lots of shade, I like that. Beach is minimal, we had to rake it so the young granddaughters could swim.
Pipe to septic was broken and needed to be cleaned out twice. Not good with 6 people and one bathroom. " Master bedroom" mattress sagged, I suggested a piece of plywood as fix but I had to put it in, Mike left it setting against a tree. Seems like just minimal is done, pots and pans are older than me, there are 4 coffee cups, well water smells. Has good potential but not there yet.
We had such a wonderful time de-stressing and having fun with the family. We had a wonderful time coasting around the lakes on the pontoon, we saw blue heron, beavers, a family of loons, ton of turtles, and some beautiful birds. We pretty much had the entire lake all to ourselves. Very little traffic which was nice as well. We took a trip into Ludington and just thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I would highly recommend staying here and renting the pontoon.
Message for Mike: You should invest in some NEW "good" cooking pans and throw some of those away.
We made due with some of the ones available, I would not let this deter anyone from visiting though. It was truly a wonderful week.
