It certainly is a "Slice of Life." My husband and one year old baby stayed there this summer while I was pregnant with number two :). Murray, the owner, could not have been more accomodating. When we needed something he was quick to find a solution and since he stays near the house, he's easy to find. The house is new and he keeps it very clean. I am very picky with cleanliness, especially with kids around. Our weather was perfect so he made sure that outdoor "toys" were ready. He also allowed us to bring a baby pool for our daughter to enjoy that was a bit closer to the house. We also had friends over that were staying in the area, so it was nice for larger group too!

Outstanding Time with Family

My wife and I are new to Michigan and this was our first vacation here. The house is large and has EVERYTHING. We had 12 family members join us from the East Coast. They were amazed with Michigan. We used the Pontoon boat, jet skis and Kayaks on the lake. I enjoyed everything about this prpoerty and we have booked to come back again.

The good, bad, and the ugly

  • 2 of 5
This is a beautiful piece of property that is well equipped both inside and outside. The problem is not the property, the problem is all the rules and regulations given to you in the one hour orientation session with the owners required of you upon arrival. There are notebooks with photos of every drawer and every room that shows you where to put everything when you are done with it. And we could have accepted all of that, if we were not made to feel as if we could not really live in this home without being judged or losing our deposit. Even when there was a freak storm one evening that caused damage to several things outside the house, we were made to feel that it was our fault--and that was after we took the time to pick things up and put things away that were blown over or away in the storm. We had two days without hot water when we first arrived, only two of the eight TV sets worked the entire week we were there, the bed pillows were like rocks, and the bed sheets had pills on them. We have stayed in many VRBO homes and have not had an experience like this one. Knowing that this is Murray and Hope's home, they may want to reconsider renting it out , as their rules and regulations seem to indicate that they are not comfortable having others in their home.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for saying the property is beautiful.
We do a welcome tour, not a "orientation". We do this to give you gate code and WiFi code, also so you know where everything is to get the biggest bang for your dollars.This is so you can relax and enjoy your time at The Slice Of Life, not hunting for something or missing out on something we have for you to use.
The "notebooks" are not all over the house, 1 upstairs kitchen and 1 downstairs kitchen, not so you have to put everything back every day, but are intended to help you find necessary items you may need.
As far as deposit goes almost everyone gets it back 100%, which a lot of people roll over for the next year vacation at The Slice Of Life.
We diffidently can not control the weather anymore than you could of.
The hot water was an issue, but was fixed as soon as reported.
Such a shame you over worried and didn't enjoy yourselves.
As always have a great rest of the year and relax!
Murray & Hope

Good Family Times

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoy our stay at Slice of Life. We took our children and grandchildren for our 50th
anniversary 3 years ago and have went each year since. We also have it booked again for the next 2
years. We love the many things there are to do there as well as the lovely spacious home. We also like to do our own cooking which the home is equipped for. The property is very clean and well kept. The owner is just a phone call away if we have any questions. We have recommended it to friends and 1 friend has booked it. We stay at the home the entire time. The day we leave we go the
Morning Star restaurant.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I can't overstate how great our weekend was. The house is elegant, spacious and comfortable. But we spent little time in the house because the outdoor areas, lake access, watercraft, and yard games are second to none. All parts of the property and the watercraft are in excellent condition. If you want to get away with friends and/or family, this place is perfect! I'm a lawyer in Beverly Hills now, but have close ties to the midwest. I have recommended this place to friends at work and to family in the midwest, equally. You can't help but have fun here. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!
