WONDERFUL WEEK

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just returned from a wonderful week together at Emma's. The house was just the right size for us-3 adults(myself,mother and brother), 2 children with other family members popping in and out. We liked the two small porches and the painted floors. Having 2 bathrooms was great and the kitchen was quite large. We also enjoyed the trains going by and all of the wildlife in the backyard.
Our children are 4 years old and could easily walk or be pulled in a wagon to the beach. They enjoyed the water, sand, and playground. We could also pull them to town or ride their bikes along the beach. We were very surprised how great the Children's Museum was inside. Don't be fooled by its humble exterior. It's amazing! We also loved the pizza place at the train station and the resturant 'Port'.
Finally the owners were wonderful. They always answered all of our question and were continually kind to us. Thanks for a great week!

GREAT WEEKEND STAY

  • 4 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful weekend at Emma's Cottage. Such short stay, but it was a wonderful location. Very close to the beach and the town -all walking distance. We definitely want to go back in the summer. Emma's cottage was really comfortable for our whole family- plenty of room! Thanks Jennifer!

EMMA'S COTTAGE

Emma's Cottage
  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Emma's Beach Walk Cottage July 31-August 7, 2011. My husband and I and our 3 grandchildren spent a fabulous week at this charming house near the beach. The location was really perfect ~ just a short walk to the beach and to town. The grandkids loved the Children's Museum in town where we spent almost an entire day. We walked into town in the evenings for pizza or ice cream or to enjoy the waterpark and merry-go-round. The beach was awesome and the weather was perfect. There is a bike trail right across the street from the cottage that we enjoyed as well. We also enjoyed having the train behind us, as the kids loved to put pennies on the tracks and were amazed to find them flattened the next day. I would really recommend this wonderful cottage to anyone coming to St. Joe for a vacation by the beach.

DAYTON FAMILY 2 KIDS AND A DOG.

  • 4 of 5
Emmas Beach cottage was in walking distance of everything. We went to the beach everyday. It rained twice so those days we shopped and went to the Curious Kids Musuem. My five year old loved the musuem we spent about half a day there. My two year old and five year old loved the carosel. We had to go once a day. The sprinklers and 3 playgrounds were also a hit. Favorite eat out was the train station and Clementines. The House had every thing we needed nice clean bathrooms and kitchen. The only thing that needed a little love was the yard. The Kids loved watching the trains. I wanted a affordoable child friendly vacation and thats what we got. Renting a house is a great way to go. You save in the end by not eating out every meal. Plenty of space to have friends or family in and out. We will defintely be back in future. Plus why not spend the money in Michigan where the economy needs it most. Thanks so Much!!

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at this property last year at the end of the season. It was ideally located for my family! We have 2 small girls, and it was really nice being so close to the beach! Literally a two block walk! It was close enough to everything that we rode bikes the entire time. We rarely got into the car to go somewhere! The owners were great to work with, and very quick to answer questions. We can't wait to come back next year!
