Guestbook comments from the owner
Entry in Guest Book: "I've been living abroad for the past 9 years and I have stayed in many holiday homes all over the world. This was by far the most comfortable, clean & well-stocked that we have ever stayed in! Thanks so much for your hospitality - we will be back! It really has felt like a home for 2 weeks."

What a great week!!

  • 5 of 5
We were so lucky to find a rental for the week in July that we were looking for and we were extra lucky that it was Gary and Cathy's house. I grew up in Muskegon and Pere Marquette beach is one of my favorite places. We walked to the beach everyday! The house was stocked with everything you could think of from all the dishes you would need to sticks in the garage to roast marshmallows over the fire pit. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a great place to stay on Lake Michigan. Gary and Cathy were very gracious and even put out fresh flowers and cookies from the famous Ryke's bakery. We loved our stay here!!

BEST ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Cathy and Gary's house and we honestly feel it is the best rental on the beach. It is stocked with everything from beach towels & toys to all of the amenities you have at home..especially in the kitchen. The beds are very very comfortable, which you don't always find in rentals. The air conditioning is also a plus. The house is clean as a whistle and Cathy and Gary could not be nicer. We love the cookies from Rykes waiting for us during each visit. The house is a short walk to the beach, perfect for sunset watching and walking on the pere. Our 6 year old grandson has enjoyed both visits to the house and never wants to leave, it's so cozy that it's like being at home. My husband and I grew up in Muskegon and feel very lucky to have found such a wonderful place to vacation on the beach. Thanks Cathy and Gary for your awesome home, see you soon!

Awesome!! The owners are incredible!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was an awesome experience! Thanks to the owners for making it truly a home away from home!! We were able to celebrate Dad's 84th birthday in style! It was awesome having family all under 1 roof! It is well maintained and excellent customer service! While visiting we saw many sunsets; grilled out and had campfires; saw a ball game at Comstock Park; visited Saugutuck, Holland State Park and Dunes; rode bikes from Hart - Montigue, Muskegon - Grand Rapids on the Musketawa Trail, and around Spring Lake; toured Silverside; and rode the Trolley! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!!

Simply Awesome

  • 5 of 5
We were 6 adults and a kid staying at this beautiful cottage for 3 nights over the memorial day weekend.
The cottage is beautiful and has everything one needs. The rooms are well furnished with a TV in the bedrooms, Dish network, lots of linen, towels, etc..
The ladies in our group were amazed how well stocked the Kitchen was with all the glassware and silverware. We were not short of anything.
The location is absolutely perfect. Hardly 5 mins from the Submarine museum. We even got to attend the memorial service and get a tour of the submarine.
Beaches are also hardly 5 mins walk. Beach is very clean. There is a light house too and sunset looks beautiful from there.
The park across the house is also nice. It was busy over the long weekend but hardly bothered us. No noise inside the house.
The gas grill was also nice (so no hassles of coal).
We did not get a chance to meet the owners personally but they were very sweet over the phone and in our emails.
In short we would surely love to visit this place again and recommend to our friends as well.

Owner's Response: We have a large TV in the living room on cable, together with a VCR and DVD player and a large collection of VCR tapes and DVDs. The bedroom with the (2) twin beds also has a separate, smaller TV (also on cable) with a VCR and a bunch of kid's video tapes; renters with younger children have said that their kids really liked this arrangement (this is the only bedroom with a TV).

Wonderful family home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this home for a week in August of 2010. It was perfect for our family: mom, dad, 2 girls (7 and 9) and a boy (2). Mom and dad had their own room with a very comfortable bed and nice sized closet. Girls had a room with 2 twin beds and a small tv with vcr/cable. Son had his own room with enough space for his pack and play bed to be set up. Was nice to have the 2 tvs with cable as the girls could watch what they wanted and so could we in the living room. Was great to have a garage. Small bathroom and laundry right off the garage was perfect for clean up after the beach. We were at the beach (a very short walk away) 2 times a day and there was only one day where the water was too cold to swim. The beach is very clean and large and lovely! Sunsets were great. Loved being able to make our own meals in the very well equiped kitchen. Our days included trips to the local state parks, swimming, trip to Grand Rapids, trip to Holland, visit to the amusement park. Plenty to do, or just stay around and relax. We hope to go back. It was a very enjoyable vacation and so nice to have a "home base" that truly felt like home.
