Reviewer Comments:
We had a great time & loved the location & layout of the house. We would rent it again but there were some problems that need fixing. There was evidence of mice upstairs and down. There is what appears to be an area of mold on ceiling over the loft. The shower curtains were mildewed & we had to wash them the first day. There were NO staples in the house when we arrived- salt & a bit of sugar only. The towels & bedding were all very nice but the crib sheet was sandy when we arrived. The lights on the beach stairs didn't seem to work. We did have a wonderful time though & liked the house.

Reviewer Comments:
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Windsong cottage! The house was very clean and well maintained and was a great fit for our family of 7. The master bedroom was huge and the rest of the rooms were plenty big for sleeping at least 2 people. Our kids had fun going up and down on the spiral staircase! The cottage came equipped w/wifi and direct tv, and we enjoyed using both when we couldn't be down on the beach. The dishwasher needs to be fixed or more likely replaced. It is very difficult to get to turn on. Upon advice from the management company, we ran it w/out the heat button pushed, but it still took several attempts and a lot of frustration before we finally were able to get it to respond! The upstairs bathroom is split up into two areas. The main part held the sink and shower. Across the hall, inside what looks like a small closet, is the toilet. No big deal, just kinda funny! We ran out of TP about 4 days in and had to purchase our own. Maybe having more rolls in stock would be helpful!

It is located on Lake Michigan and the view is amazing! It is 90ish steps down to the beach. At the bottom of the stairs, there are some cinder blocks stacked up as make-shift "stairs" to get you the last few feet down to the beach. We managed, but it wasn't easy and, unless you are very agile, it took someone or something to hold on to for balance to make it the rest of the way. I'm not sure if that is the way it is because of the instability of the sand making it difficult to get actual stairs to work at this point, but if it would be possible to build a small set of stairs that are more easily managed, that would be helpful. That being said, it didn't diminish our enjoyment of the beach in the slightest!

All in all, it was an awesome week made even better by our accomodations and the view! We plan to do it again next year!

Reviewer Comments:
The location and view were the highlight of our trip, however, the property has not been well maintained. Many of the interior and exterior lights were not working...outside on the deck and the spotlights for the long staircase leading to the beach. (I would never bring an elderly person to this property because the 90 steps to the beach are tough..even if you are in shape!) While the property does not advertise an outside shower, there is one next to the deck, which would be ideal to have operational to avoid tracking sand into the cottage. The dishwasher is relatively new but didn't work consistently, which was frustrating. Another concern was the landline phone was not able to accept incoming calls, so when service issues occurred, we were unable to resolve quickly because cell service doesn't work from the property. Last, the bed mattresses must be replaced because they are very uncomfortable and showing their age. Despite all this, I believe if there was more attention paid to detail, this could be a great place to rent due to the fabulous views of Lake Michigan.

Reviewer Comments:
We unfortunately picked a week that six carpenters used to put on an addition on the house next door. This meant constant noise from 8AM - 4PM during the week. And we went to the Windsong to relax in peace and quiet. The view of the water and sound of the surf are soothing.

We were given a password for the Internet but there was no Internet signal detected. Cell phones don't work up there, but you can use the house phone.

We have stayed here before and would suggest it for young through middle aged adults with no young children. The spiral staircase and long set of 72 stairs to the beach would be dangerous for young kids or old or heavy people. It is also easy to fall into the sunken living room. You just have to be careful.

The kitchen is nice and there is a store in town to shop for food. There are a few places to eat in town, also, but we prefer eating at the house. The microwave heats very hot very fast.

The beach is very nice, but people from the area park their cars in the nearby Christmas Cove Beach parking area and then walk over onto the private beach with their large unleashed dogs. In fact, we saw the very same couple every evening just like last year who let their large black dog run loose and NEVER clean up after it. I would have reported them, but it's a hassle and in the two weeks we have stayed at Windsong, we have never seen a police car in the Northport area. Basically, the locals do what they want down at the beach which they view as THEIR beach.
