Lovely Home

  • 3 of 5

A lovely vacation home which was perfect for our family of nine. One caution: Be aware of possible undisclosed additional cleaning fees.There are no clearly outlined expectations for what the owner wants the renter to do upon departure. We have rented approximately 20 vacation homes and each had a helpful list of duties to complete, such as laundry, dishes, take out garbage, etc. and a clearly stated fee for not completing these duties. This wasn't the case for this property. I was very surprised to be notified by the owner that I would owe an additional cleaning fee which was not stated anywhere in the contract or in the home.

Wonderful, relaxing, family fun at Two Porches

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 7, 2013

This house is amazing! Ten people from three generations and we were all very comfortable sleeping, preparing and eating meals, reading on the front porch, watching TV, playing cards and getting ready to walk down to the beach! The house is big enough so that you can be where the action is or spend a little alone time too. Everyone really loved the master bath shower! And having several people in our family with pet allergies, we really appreciate that pets and smoking are not allowed!

We ate at the usual places; Nani's Cafe (several times for breakfast and lunch), Blue Plate Cafe, Greenbush Brewery, Roadhouse, Stray Dog, Casey's, but the best cheeseburger was at the train museum in Hesseton, IN. Did a spa day w/the girls too! One rainy day we took the kids to the movies in Michigan City, IN which we realized is in a different time zone as we were the only one in the theater for almost an hour!

We'll be back in 2014!

Great home for families with kids

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 15, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We stayed in Lakeside with our two children and another family with young children, and Two Porches really met our needs (close to the beach, convenient washer/dryer, nice warm outside shower, well-equipped kitchen, plenty of beds, short drive to shops and walking distance to a restaurant). The owner is accessible and helpful, and the house is very clean and well-kept. Our only "wish" is that the upstairs sleeping loft had window shades and/or more air circulation - it gets warm up there. But we plan to return, and would readily recommend this rental to others!

Owner's Response: So glad that your family enjoyed Two Porches as much as we do and we look forward to renting our home to your referrals. We agree that Two Porches is a great home for families with kids.

we all enjoyed our stay at two porches. we had a few gliches when we arrived the internet and cable was out. we were able to access the email after a few days but the cable did not come on til thurs. It was only a problem because my mom and aunt are in their 80's and were not able to go to the beach.
The beach was wonderful clean and everyone was nice and respectful. The house is magnificent absolutely beautiful and large great for extended family. I would definetly reccommend this home to everyone. try the pumpernickel cafe food was wonderful oink for ice cream if you need groceries go to barneys in new buffalo extremely nice .The beach was not as close as I thought but I should have asked that question.

Peaceful, pleasant birthday retreat

  • Stayed: May 2013
Just returned from a relaxing stay at Two Porches for a 50th birthday party celebration with family and friends. The home is clean, bright, and airy. The open kitchen, dining, living area was a great place to stay in and cook together. Their two gas grills were handy for the outdoor cooking, while the spacious kitchen facilitated the other prep, and serving of our meal for 9. We enjoyed the front porch for lunch alfresco. The path to the beach is just down the lane, with a short walk down the road. The neighborhood is very quiet, so it was easy to unwind and relax in the evening. There is plenty of shopping, wine tasting, golf, and other activities to keep everyone in your group satisfied. I would recommend Two Porches for anyone looking for a great stay in the beach area of Michigan, but don't tell too many friends or it will be booked! It might have to become a Memorial Day tradition for our family.
