Patrice Buzzella purchased this house in 2012
I couldn't have been more pleased! Have rented many years now and have learned not to trust the pictures and descriptions that are presented online. This one exceeded my expectations. The house was clean and very comfortable. Patty is very easy and nice to work with. I didn't have to worry about the grandkids playing in the water. Everyone loved it! There were 8 adults and 3 grandchildren with plenty of room. The Wi-Fi is a plus. My son-in-law was able to do his classes and still enjoy his vacation. There are so many activities around there is no reason to get bored on a rainy day. The best day was when we rented Jet Ski's from the neighbors, Jodi and Tim, who were very nice and helpful. Didn't have a chance to meet the neighbors on the other side, they weren't there at the time. Enjoyed the bonfires at night! I don't think you can beat the view! My grown children like to move around and experience different places but this time they kept bugging me to re-book for next year. I believe as long as Patty keeps renting, this will be our wonderful vacation spot. Thank You Patty for allowing us to use your beautiful home and experience a wonderful vacation!
This home sits directly on the water with an amazing view of the East Bay. The open floor plan flows beautifully onto the outdoor patio, making it feel like an extension of the house. A variety of comfortable outdoor seating is perfect for alfresco dining, cocktails, lounging or enjoying a gorgeous sunset by a roaring bonfire. Five women on their 24th annual getaway had more than enough room and amenities to make for a perfect vacation. The only caveat I would even bother mentioning is the five single beds (including bunk beds) are quite firm - but nothing that would prevent us from going back. I've used VRBO/Home Away many times and Patty's is right up there with the best. The pictures you see are exactly what you get - and what you get is awesome!
We recommend Apache Trout Grill for lunch/dinner/cocktails, 7 Monks Brew & Sports Pub (creative chef and fun atmosphere) and Little Bohemia for simple music and good food. Thanks for everything Patty and thanks to Nellie for a sparkling clean home.
The house and location were great. There were 8 of us (2 families of four) and our Greater Swiss Mountain dog and all were comfortable. The house is very clean and neat - and the water ... I still can't believe that is the same Lake Michigan we have in Chicago. All the kids were able to walk out for several hundred feet waist high in the water. We all had a great time! The neighbors next door (to the right facing the beach) were very very nice and allowed us to rent their jet ski for a day - if we had only known they had the pontoon we would have gone to them for that as well!
Thank you for letting us stay and enjoy the area. My only wish - someone had turned the heater on in the lake!
My wife, extended family and I stayed in this house over the Memorial Day weekend and it couldn't have been nicer. The house has a great configuration and it was very clean and neat. It's in a great location and has an amazing view of the water. We all decided that we would love to come back to stay at this house every summer.
We happened to get there when the owner was still there checking the house and she was very nice!! The view is amazing and then sunroom made the house! Every couch in the place is so comfortable too! The lady who lives next door has the cutest puppy and they're both very friendly. I recommended it to all of my friends and would definitely love to rent this house again if available!
