Perfect for our family

We rented the farmhouse for 3 nights in July and it was absolutely perfect. We had 3children (ages 4,11,13) with us and they loved the paddle boat and private beach area. We traveled to Ludington and it only took 30 min. We also brought 2 dogs and the caretakers were very accepting of them as well. Furniture was comfortable yet we did not need to worry about ruining furniture or carpet when entering the house directly from the lake. We think this is a terrific property for families who do not require 5 star accommodations. We will rent this property again!

Wonderful week of relaxation

This was a great place, there were 8 of us, include a 3 and 5 year old. Everyone had a great time. The only thing was the trip walking down to the lake. My dad is 64 and by the end of the week had trouble with that. He said at one point he wished it would have had a railing for him. Other than that it was wonderful, we will be back!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay, do hope you'll be back! The trip down to the beach is a bit of a challenge, wish we could change that, but a location on top of a hill overlooking a beautiful lake is part of the charm of the Farmhouse! hopefully, the observation deck part way down helps
with the trip! Thanks for staying with us & hope to see you again soon!

Quiet retreat with privacy. House provided basic requirements and boat; canoe and paddle boat were great but canoe had small leak. Lake was very quiet sometimes deserted. Can just get through small connection to three other lakes with canoe and paddle boat which is really worth the effort.
Small beach area and can swim to floating dock Good for families and groups.

Owner's Response: So glad you & your family enjoyed your stay! thanks for bringing the leak to our attention, it is being repaired. Hope you'll visit again in the future! Rose & Jim - Mgrs.

Very nice stay. We needed a place that allowed pets. The dogs loved it and so did their people. The picnic table needs repair. The trash can was full. But the farmhouse was a very pleasent place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review - we enjoyed the pets AND their people!! Sorry the trash was not picked up before you came, that seldom happens. Hope you'll visit again! Rose & Jim - Mgrs.

nice quiet inland lake, with clear water

Granddaughters had fun jumping off the dock and riding on the paddle boat. Nana and Papa enjoyed kayaking the 4 interconnecting lakes and the AuSable River. We saw a bald eagle, loons, purple martins, kingfisher, turtles, heron and muskrat.
The house was adequate for the male members but not so charming for the females. The bedrooms were alittle stuffy.
Recommended for:  Age 55+
Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! The abundant wildlife is just part of the charm of the "up north" experience! Sorry you found the bedrooms to be stuffy, it was unusually hot for this time of the year - wish you'd called & we could have provided add'l fans if needed. Hope you'll come stay & explore some more in the future! Rose & Jim - Mgrs.
