Our family rented this home for 4 years before having the opportunity to purchase it from the original builder/owner. It has felt like 'ours' from the beginning & it is a true gift from God for our family.

This home is particularly suited to multi-generational family gatherings. Because of the unique open floor plan, each family can have their own 'space', yet be completely together.

Great Home for Three Generation Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful property for multi-generations to stay for a week. We had our children and mates, plus their 5 children (infant to 8 years)-11 total. The space was perfect for eating meals together (table seats 12), two living rooms to relax, three private bedrooms with extra twins and a crib, plus 5 beds in the loft - some being doubles. We had both warm and cool weather. The huge movie selection along with games and puzzles kept all entertained (along with a noon trip to Saugatuck). On the warm days, we spent at the private beach. It is 9/10 mile from house, but you can drive right up to beach, leave car, and leave chairs all week stacked up by dune. I thoroughly enjoyed walks through the neighborhood and to beach, hearing the birds, seeing deer, and admiring the homes. Morning walks on the beach were the best; evening sunsets were picture perfect. Julie was great to work with. Thanks for opening your home to others!

This is real!

  • 5 of 5
We are impressed that great interior work. Actually no one can tell it from outside or photo, though once open the door then see inside, you will be realized what real thing is.
When we stayed there it was bad storm and no leaves were grown, but everybody had enjoyed staying house which could make our feeling warm, and made us smile. So now I understand why this house booked out all season.
One thing I should make note that it's located walk-by distance from Lake Michigan, and there is common deck to see great lake, but access to the lake is heavy slope/steps which is not for small kids or old parson. If you want to get beach, just remind it.

AMAZING and GORGEOUS vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
Ahhh, we just adore this cottage! It is located in a quiet and quaint neighborhood with a very reasonable walk to the stairs that lead down to the beach--and the beach is fantastic!

The house is so much more than pictures can tell. Very large and spacious, yet still cozy enough to feel like a true cottage. The owners have done an incredible job making it feel like a real "home" with all the unique decor touches. My husband and I spent time at the cottage for our anniversary, and it was exactly what we were looking for. Close enough to great shops and restaurants, but secluded enough to feel like you are all alone.

We also loved the information on the surrounding area provided by the owners. They have marked out some great eateries, antique shops, and family spots--really thoughtful idea.

All in all, we will definitely be returning to this beautiful vacation spot!

Awesome house and more than we expected!!!

  • 5 of 5
When we saw the house in pictures, we thought that it looked very nice and cozy, but when we arrived there, it was way more than how it looked in the pictures. The house is beautiful, everything was very clean, it is in a very nice area and the beach was nearby. This house is perfect when going with a couple of families since it does have a lot of space inside. We loved the master bedroom (of the space) and just how welcoming of a home it is. I would say, and others that went with me, that this was the best vacation home that I had ever went to so far. I would recommend this house to anyone and I would go there again without thinking!

Great family retreat

  • 5 of 5
We all had a great family vacation at your beautiful home. There were 3 families and we all had plenty of living space. The home is in a wooded area with a fire pit for making s'mores and three decks where we enjoyed our morning coffee. All the appliances were new and we cooked gourmet dinners every nite. We are Italian, need I say more? Eating al fresco at 9pm made me feel like we were in Italy. Even though there was no a/c we had plenty of fans to keep us cool. We spent our days at the beach sunning ourselves and looking for cool beach stones. Can't wait to book our stay for 2013, Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Sincerely, Barb, Lorella and Andrea

P.S. We had a blast with the puzzle. It became a nightly addiction, with a glass of wine of course......

Beautiful home-no air conditioning

  • 3 of 5
"No air conditioning" not part of description- we felt very misled as this is a home built fairly recently.The house even has a thermostat that says "Cool" .
This home sounded perfect from the description- upon arrival, we realized it had no airconditioning- between 2:00PM and 11:00PM the heat builds and there is no relief- very uncomfortable during our stay when the temps ouside were actually cooler than the inside due to " adobe effect". High humidity and no lake breezes contributed to the miserable heat in the house. When this problem is solved, it will be lovely.

Owner's Response: This home was purchased by us just this spring. Home will have AC in 2013. Temps in Michigan this summer have been unusually high. We have no control over that & unfortunately this particular week was very hot, humid & without any breeze. We have been completely truthful on our website in not checking 'air conditioning' in the appropriate spot.
