But that's about it!
This place is kinda of a dump, needs deep cleaning and major repairs.
The cabinets are all sticky, fowl and I mean fowl sewer smell coming from under the kitchen sink, in fact they placed a drip bucket that was half full with black stinky water.
The bathroom floor is always wet due to a toilet leak.
Also, there's junk all over the property.
After I unpacked my car, I picked up 5 piles of dog poop! Which brings my next complaint, the owners that live in the property, fail to mention in the "amenities" that their 2 dogs and 2 kids (all cute) will be literally in your face all the time. In fact we had to ask the kids to go home so we could have dinner and relax.
There's no beach chairs, towels or even garbage bags. I had to make a run to Meijer to drop over $120 in cleaning supplies and such.
Be aware that you will share the yellow grass area with 2 other rentals.
Overall we were very disappointed with our experience, to the point that we left a day earlier than we paid for.
Definitely not going back there. Even though the beach and sunset are breathtaking!
It's a shame becuse it has so much potential.
Had a really nice time, very peaceful. My dogs loved the beach - as did my husband and I.
Owners are wonderful! Really helped us out when we had a medical emergency, even walked our dogs while we were at the hospital, ( Lakeview regional hospital is excellent). Felt like good friends in a short time.
Beds are comfy. Linens very nice, nice setup for the dining room..
Could use a new microwave, wish there was a dishwasher, and a phone somewhere beside the living room. But no big deal.
Hammock looking over the lake was great. Hope to go back again!
Stairs to the beach require agility, and being in pretty good shape, you are going down a sand dune after all
We had a great time and this ideal location has an awesome view. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. They actually went above and beyond with our two stays this summer! The house has everything you need to enjoy your stay and being located equal distance to South Haven and St. Joe was a huge benefit. I noticed some reviews talk about the "stairs of doom" which are pretty easy to navigate and the sixty foot climb to the beach is better than some of the 100+ ones in that area. Beautiful private sandy beach was nice and their pet friendly nature was appreciated. We will definitely be back!
The "Stairs of Doom"(that is the sign at the top of them ) are so dangerous! I actually broke my toe on them. They are uneven, different sizes, no handrails & no lighting. Getting to the lake is quite the ordeal to say the least. The house is OK, but don't plan on getting any sleep if you use the sofa sleeper. There are also two other house on the property that share the yard & stairs, definitely a lack of privacy. We also had septic issues. Needless to say, WE WILL NOT BE BACK!!
My husband, daughter and my two dogs enjoyed our Memorial Day weekend at the Cottage and had a wonderful time. This was our first stay and are thrilled at how dog friendly the entire environment is so that we can enjoy ourselves as a family. Our two dogs made friends with other dogs on the property and played for hours. The beach is absolutely beautiful but be prepared to navigate the rustic stairs. We grilled out for dinner every night and later made smores after roasting marshmallows in the fireplace. Yum! What more can you ask for!
Excellent location and views! My family and I loved the views and the owners were extremely nice and helpful! My 2 kids are asking when they can go back! Superb place to go and get R and R. The beach is the best beach I have ever been on, beats the Atlantic Ocean anytime! So close to 2 quaint and beautiful towns, like St. Joe's and South Haven. Enjoyed the chocolate shops and wineries too!
