Perfect get away spot

  • 5 of 5
We are 2 adults, no kids. We were THRILLED to stay at this house. It is right on the water with a perfect view of the sunset each night. The house is newly remodeled and very clean. There is a fire pit on the beach for an evening fire. There is also a propane grill on the deck that we used to grill hamburgers for supper. The kitchen is fully stocked with all necessary cookware, utensils and dishes. The house is located just a short drive into town where you can rent kayaks or go out for dinner or shopping. We spent our days at the house, wading out into the water and fishing every day. Water shoes are a must.

The owner was very accommodating to meet us upon our arrival. We were late arriving, and he met us when we arrived. He was late to his own family wedding to accommodate us! We will most definitely plan another trip and stay here again!

Immaculate home on beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5
My 6-year old son and I had a wonderful week at this vacation house. The home is extremely clean and well-maintained. It is also well-equipped for a week's stay - good knives, ample cookware, tupperware/plastic wrap/etc., high-speed wifi, and a washer and dryer (which was particularly great when going into the lake 2-3 times a day)! The bottom level of the house stays very cool, and the top cools off easily if you open windows and get a cross breeze. You could easily fit 5-7 people in the house with the 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.

It is literally right on the beach. The water is shallow a long ways out, which was perfect for a new swimmer and his mom who prefers wading. It does have a rocky bottom, so I would recommend bringing water shoes or sandals you can get wet (we did this and had no problems, but our attempt to go barefoot was not as comfortable). Often we were the only people we could see in the lake, I think the most at one time was 7 people and that was across about 3 football fields of lake space. Plenty of privacy.

The view is truly breathtaking. You will get an amazing postcard-worthy sunset every night. The town is a very short drive and has a nice park, several mini golf locations, restaurants and groceries. There are several state / local parks nearby though we tended to stay at the house beach/lake.

The landlord Jim was great, he made sure we were set up well, but was not intrusive at all.

I would highly recommend a stay here!

Jim what a wonderful time, place and memories we have had staying at this beautiful home . Everything was up to-date, the home was spotless the beach was great and the kids loved exploring the little islands. Thanks again for opening your home for all of us to enjoy. We will definitely be back again:) P.S. We also would recommend The Farm House Restaurant, the food was supreme a little expensive but was worth the price.

Week of pure heaven, gorgeous sunsets, relaxation, peace, and wading.

  • 5 of 5
I was nervous about renting somewhere 'sight unseen', but this cottage exceeded my expectations 100%. The owner, Jim, answered all of my many questions before my arrival in a friendly and timely manner. This cottage has all of the 'creature comforts' of home! The dishwasher and laundry facilities were a huge blessing to our family. The sunsets were absolutely incredible! I took a picture of each different masterpiece every night! I couldn't believe how fresh and clean everything was when we arrived! We also VERY much appreciated having a shed to put our bikes in (4 adult bikes). That was awesome! Our stay was divine! We rode bikes to Port Austin, walked on the pier, went to the farmer's market, got the most HUGE gigantor ice cream cones at the little town of Grindstone. We chartered a fishing trip with Captain John (http://www.fishportaustin.com/), caught some HUGE HUGE fish, and cooked them on the bbq. MMMMmmmm. MMmmm... good! If you rent, water shoes are a MUST!! There are alot of 'skipping stones', and the water is so shallow that you can throw a handful of rocks in one direction, go wading, pick them back up, and throw them again. We did that all week! We had to go to a nearby town and get water shoes though, because of the rocks, but the water is so clean and clear, that we were glad to! This is the perfect place for little ones! It is SO shallow! Knee deep for about 400', about 3' deep even after about 1/3 of a mile out from shore!! GREAT for snorkeling and for kids!! And the mini-golf about 10 minutes away was completely awesome! We had a great vacation. Seriously, we'd rent there again! In a heartbeat!! Thank you Jim, for allowing us to rent your beautiful cottage.

Good Value, Great Location

Beautiful place. Great location. Perfect for our family with two grown children. Well equipped, and nicely appointed. Felt like a place we could call home. Reasonable rates. Jim was a good communicator and accommodating to our needs.

A Real Winner

  • 5 of 5
We just loved our time in this rental! The cottage is thoroughly updated; kitchen,bathroom, and hardwood floors. It is well-equipped, including a washer and dryer for your use. Jim, the owner, was helpful and accommodating. The sunsets were the most amazing, we could not take enough pictures. Even without air conditioning on those blistering hot days in July, there was no problem sleeping at night. Port Austin is a fantastic town with so much to see and do. We have already booked for 2013!
