Wonderful week in Lakeside

  • 4 of 5
What a wonderful cottage we stayed in last week! All three bedrooms had double beds and ceiling fans, there was a new washer/dryer, and the kitchen was modern and well stocked. It was a short walk to the public beach, and easy to get to the highway. The beautiful grounds, garden, and fire pit area were great for our kids playing and making s'mores. There was a good collection of puzzles, games, and paperbacks for light summer reading.

But the best part of all, the secret hidden gem, is the enormous, fully screened summer porch. We'd spend every afternoon and evening there relaxing, reading, or lounging in the hammock while the kids played on the daybeds, couch, or worked on puzzles at the table. Ceiling fans kept things cool in the August heat, and cute paper lamps lit the room at night. Plus, the porch is far enough away from the house that the grownups could speak at a normal volume and not worry about waking any kids after they went to bed. My oldest son and I even spent a night out there after stargazing and sitting by the fire. The only criticism I can give is the fairly regular train horn from the tracks a block or so away. It woke me, but not the kids thankfully, and I was able to get back to sleep quickly.

Many thanks for a great stay and we hope to visit again soon!

What a great place to stay for our girls weekend! This house is just as nice as the pictures show. Loved all the cute decor! It was very clean and well stocked. Would have loved to be here in the summer to see the garden all in bloom. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks, Bill for keeping such a lovely home!

Cozy.

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was very cozy and clean. The location was great. It was close to New Buffalo and the dunes. We were able to tour the wineries and breweries in the area as well. It had all the conveniences of home and felt like a vacation. The best part was I was able to bring my dog!!!!!!

Comfortable, Cozy and Lake Accessible

  • 5 of 5
Lakeside Grove Cottage had all our needs met—spacious, comfortable with a variety of spaces (indoor and out) to accommodate all our needs. Whether taking a walk to the beach, having coffee on the porch, grilling dinner in the back, or reading while sprawled out on the couch, the cottage had all the conveniences while retaining a cozy and intimate experience.
A nice respite to reconnect with family and friends.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5
Bill is such a pleasure to work with -- he was really kind about helping me collect at power cord that was left at the house during our stay -- and he's made this cottage a really special place. We (3 adults) were here for a girls' weekend and we each had our own bedroom (each with an incredibly comfy bed!). The summer cottage is just lovely -- if we'd had more time and the weather had been warmer we would have spent lots of time out there. Instead we perused the local antique shops and had a great dinner at Soe. Would definitely recommend this cottage!

A great summer getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect retreat. The cottage itself is in a nice wooded area, yet access to the sunny beach is right down the street. Right when we walked in the door we knew this was going to be a great stay- the decor was inviting, the house was well maintained and the grounds were fun to explore. A great place to relax for a week.
I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice retreat. We have two small children, and the house was welcoming for them. They especially loved the summer cottage, which was like their very own secret play room.
