We rented this property for a girls weekend and had a wonderful time! Sandra was so easy to reach and even suggested places to go and eat nearby! The house & lake were beautiful! We came back so relaxed!
What a wonderful house for a summer getaway! There was a group of 10 of us and the house couldn't have been more perfect. It was relaxing, clean, and very accomodating. The owners of this house are great--both helpful and responsive. They both made it very easy to find the house and gave us access to anything we needed. My group will definitely be back next year!
For a 30th birthday celebration we wanted to visit the vineyards of Michigan. We happened to find this house and it was beyond our expectations! Beautiful! It was very clean and homey! It really was a home away from home, we kept saying how it felt like we were at a friend's house. We visited 4 vineyards all within a 20 minute drive, it was a perfect weekend. We're looking forward to going back when the weather warms up to enjoy the lake. Well worth the price, can't wait for our next visit!
We spent a few days here for a family summer vacation and the house was great. The lake was never crowded and the area was nice and quiet, perfect for a relaxing vacation with family. The kids had fun playing on the beach, in the yard, and fishing from the boat. The adults were able to relax in the quiet environment and just enjoy the tranquility. The owners were great and communicated very well (this was our first time doing a rental house and they were very helpful). I would definitely do this again.
My group of nine stayed at this lovely house to celebrate a 30th birthday. It was a perfect weekend. We went sledding, cooked a big pot of chili, explored the nearby towns, played board games and enjoyed the view. There was plenty of room for everyone in our group. I'm sure the house is amazing in the summer too, but I cannot recommend it enough for a snowy winter weekend away.
