SPACIOUS AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 nights at Allegan Acres for a family reunion. The house is very large with many rooms, so if you are travelling with a number of people there is always a place for everybody. The open plan kitchen, dining and living room provided a great place each evening and breakfast for the family to get together. The kitchen was well supplied and the handy dishwasher made cleaning up easy. The laundry has a large capacity washer and separate dryer including wash liquid which was very handy. There are a range of bedrooms to choose from including pull out sofa beds. The swimming pool area was a great place for the kids to play, the pool was too cold BUT they thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub. There is also a gas BBQ that made for great evening meals. All in all the house is well equipped and we enjoyed our stay very much. Just a short drive away in Fennville town you can find a great pizeria and a superb restaurant called salt of the earth where they make all their dishes from scratch. Another great place to have lunch or buy a great home made fruit pie is Cranes Pie shop. Time went quick, we wished we could have stayed longer.

HOLIDAY PARTY

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year in a row we rented this house for our holiday getaway weekend. The layout of this house is excellent for a large group of people. Very comfortable for large group and feels like a home away from home. Fully stocked kitchen, but could use a little maintenance, it was hard to find glasses without stains. However, lots of dishes, bowls, and pots/pans to feed a large group. House is very clean and well maintained, except for a few dishes that didn't seem clean.

THE PLACE TO STAY IN SW MICHIGAN!

  • 5 of 5
Spectacular barely describes this home and all its amenities! The listing photos cannot begin to capture all this home has to offer - you have to see it for yourself. My only regret was that we only stayed 2 nights. This house wowed us from the street and just kept getting better and better. The kitchen was fully stocked with every imaginable utensil and culinary tool. The decor had an earthy feel to it while not looking dated. The grounds (3 acres) offered room to roam with fire pit, tree swing, hammock and space for us to play. But my favorite part had to be the fenced in back yard where we sat for morning coffee near the pool and hot tub. Afternoons/evenings the heated pool provided fun and relaxation. At night a book by the fire pit while roasting marshmallows finished a perfect day. They even supplied us with a garage door opener so if felt like we were pulling into our own home instead of a rental. Don't make the same mistake we did - if you travel to SW Michigan, stay at Allegan Acres for AT LEAST a week if you can. The area has plenty to offer and the home will feel like your own!

GREAT HOME AND OUTDOOR AREA

  • 4 of 5
Loved the home and all it had to offer; however, the upstairs bedrooms were very hot and uncomfortable as the air conditioning did not cool them.

Owner's Response: I take great pride in providing a rental home that is comfortable and enjoyable in every aspect, and the positive feedback and reviews that I receive are consistent with that fact. In the four years that I have been renting this house, I can't recall any other complaints about the temperature of the house. I have personally stayed at the house with my family during some extremely hot summer weather, and we have always been comfortable. That said, the temperatures did reach into the upper 90's during this renter's stay, and heat does rise so that the upstairs will be warmer than the lower floors. To help make renters more comfortable, most bedrooms have ceiling fans and there are other portable fans available throughout the house. For extra warmth in the winter months, most beds have heated mattress pads. I have had the air conditioning inspected by an HVAC company and they have determined that everything is working fine.

BEAUTIFUL, SPACIOUS HOME WITH MANY AMENITIES

  • 5 of 5
Allegen Acres is a beautiful, clean home to enjoy getting away from it all. The house is well equipped with everything you could possibly think of. Being there during the winter, we were inside the entire time, but never felt like we were on top of each other. The house is spread out nicely, with many areas to just hang out. There were clear instructions for using everything, which was appreciated. Thank you for making the place so inviting. Our group was already making plans to go back before we even left!
