The Perfect SW Michigan Home

We were so pleased with our choice of vacation homes - this place had it all! Close to all the quaint towns, but far enough off the beaten path to feel private and secluded - the perfect weekend getaway! The cottage was beautiful, very clean, and provided all the amenities of home. When we arrived, there was a wonderful snack and a bottle of wine waiting for us - just what you need after a long car ride! The owner was amazing! We tried the breakfast for our first morning and it was to die for! We also had a private cooking class in the owner's home and it was incredible! Not only do you get to watch the chef cook and eat his food, but we were able to ask questions, and take the recipes home. The recipes were fancy and impressive, but chef Jim was able to make it so easy to understand and repeat at home - my dinner guests were impressed with my culinary skills!

Thank you Chef Jim, for a wonderful stay and an impressive home - we WILL be back!

This was the perfect cottage in the perfect location! My best friend and I came to stay for a long weekend and loved the surroundings and the cottage itself. You are a quick drive to many cute villages such as Saugatuck, Douglas, etc. but are far enough off the beaten path, that it feels private and secluded. The cottage itself was very roomy, extremely clean, and filled with all the comforts of home. The chef services provided by Chef Jim were fabulous! I highly recommend a private cooking class - it was amazing! Not only did you get to watch him cook, but we were able to ask questions, taste along the way, and take the amazing recipes home - recipes that you really CAN make! I made the dinner he prepared for us once I arrived home, and my dinner guests were amazed by my cooking skills! Thanks Jim for an amazing time in Michigan!

We had a wonderful time at Jim's guest cottage, and plan to return in the future. It is in a convenient location to explore several towns in the area, and has a nice private beach area. The cottage is beautiful and sparkling clean, and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need. Jim is a gracious host, providing a wonderful appetizer upon our arrival and delicious breakfasts through his chef service. The cottage is private and serene, and is the perfect combination of "north woods" and "beach house"!

Our saving grace

The cottage was our saving grace. Days after we found out my husband was getting transferred to Charlotte we were scheduled to go stay at the cottage which was 300 miles the other direction. I contemplated canceling the trip because we had so much work to do and that is a whole lot of driving. But my husband, the logical thinker that he is, said "no lets go, we need the break". He has never been so right. Jim has the cottage set up so that you don't want for anything! He has thought of everything that you could possibly need and MORE! The washer and dryer are the best! The chef services are a must too. The dishes that he prepared for us were absolutely delicious. I have never had cauliflower that tasted so wonderful! Breakfast was heavenly. I just can't say enough!! Definitely take the time to head in to Saugatuck and Douglas. They are quant lakeside towns that you would never believe are in Michigan. The people are sweet and the scenery is breathtaking. I am still amazed at just how beautiful it was and wish we would have thought to go in the fall when the leaves are turning...but we might not have left. Honestly if you are looking for an escape, relaxation, rejuvenation or just a "leave me alone" couple of days. This is your spot. I promise you won't go wrong. Thanks Jim for the wonderful couple days. We will definitely be back.

This was a WONDERFUL vacation house! We are a family of 5 with 3 children ages 10, 7 and 2 and we had the best time. The house is immaculate! Decorated very nicely. Everything you need is already there for you. Plenty of seating as well as beds available. The location is right in the middle of 3 great cities! The beach is right there and beautiful! The fact that the washer and dryer was in the house was the best! All the sand from beach made for a lot of dirty clothes. The setting was so peaceful and tranquil! Jim, the owner, is wonderful as well. He is available but gives you all the space you need. He was very helpful upon arrival! GREAT appetizer! Thank you! This would be a great place for couples as well! We plan on returning alone and with the kids again! Thank you Jim for the perfect getaway...just what we needed!!
