This is the perfect location for a reunion or groups to rent together. Enjoy this 5 bedroom (sleeps 14), 3 full bathrooms, gathering place with a beautiful lakefront view, dining seating for 14, and a large deck to relax and enjoy time with those you love most!
We've set this home up with vacation mode in mind - enjoy games, books, large table for gathering, multiple decks to relax on, and a great beachfront located just across our dead-end street. This beautiful location was recently remodeled and added on to and also offers all of the most convenient modern technologies you might enjoy as well (TV w/ DVD & BluRay, wireless internet access, built in USB ports in convenient locations).
Home features the following bedrooms/bathrooms:
Bedroom w/ Queen Size bed
Bedroom w/ Queen Size bed
2 bunk rooms each featuring 2 sets of bunks (4 beds/room)
Full master bedroom suite with King size bed, sitting area, desk, walk-in closet with crib if needed, and two decks. The deck on the front features outdoor seating areas and has a spectacular view of the lake.
Full bathroom with drop in jacuzzi bathtub (with shower) offering unique lakefront views.
We live just under an hour away from this property giving us a chance to enjoy it as much as we hope you do! We have three girls in elementary/middle school and want them to experience great memories at a lakehouse.
Craig grew up in the Chicago area and Stephenie is from Northern Michigan. We love the life on the lake and the relaxing atmosphere it brings into our normally busy lives.
Craig & Stephenie Young purchased this cottage in 2012
As our children are growing up, we wanted to give them the memories of having a cottage to experience in the summer (or for those drab winter weekends when we need a change of pace). We decided to buy a property that we could also convert into a vacation rental because we've enjoyed that experience as renters ourselves over the years.
We loved this property for several reasons. First, it was a small lake front cottage that had about 2000 square feet added on to it to create a 3000+ square foot luxurious vacation home. We felt this would make it a good place to come with multiple families - because vacations are always more fun when you can share them with people you love to be with! And then, when we reached the top floor we fell in love with the master suite. Each morning we wake up there we realize how blessed we are to be able to experience the views that we do in an amazing space.
This is a large house and is perfect for a family reunion, a girls weekend, a small group vacation, a work retreat, or a larger family to enjoy.
We all love getting away, but our jobs might not allow fully being unplugged and as working professionals ourselves, we understand that and have incorporated it into this home. The house has USB ports in convenient locations, wireless internet access, a work area if needed, and remote heating/cooling access so we can have the temperature set and ready for your arrival. For security purposes, the home has a personal coded front door lock that will be specific to you.
We tried to make it comfortable for kids and adults by offering quality mattresses in all of the rooms and all of the amenities you might need in the home. The second floor has 2 bunk rooms with 4 beds in each room. The home features two bedrooms with queen size beds (1st floor and 2nd floor) and the 3rd floor is a full master suite with a king size bed and a crib if needed.
This house was a perfect house for our teen group! Having three full bathrooms was perfect and the layout was great especially for those who wanted to get extra sleep. We would have liked more sitting in the living room for all of us to comfortably sit and watch tv. The was plenty of seats for eating together. It was very spacious! There is plenty to do for the winter and summer! The owners are very hospitable. What we did not bring they had at the house! We would definitely rent this home again and suggest it for other families and groups as well!
We loved every minute of this trip! This home is so awesome for multiple families and gatherings. Everything was clean and so beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with pots pans plates and such. There are only a few items that would make it better. Ceiling fans in the rooms with Queen beds because it gets too hot. The room with the Queen on the 2nd has poor air ventilation and we ended up going to the store to buy a fan for our visit. The next thing I would like to see is a carbon monoxide detector because of the gas stove. Many times it was bumped and we could smell something but didn't know what it was. We finally caught on after the 3rd time. Lastly because the home is for big gathers you go through a lot of trash. Having another trash container to hold all of those extra bags is much nicer than placing on the curb and smelling all week long. But these items didn't impact the memories and the amount of fun we had! We are already talking about doing it again!
My family of 13 (Parents, siblings and thier children) had a wonderful time in this beautiful home. It had everthing we could ever need and the lake was wonderful. The neighbors were also terrific. Stephenie and Craig were very nice and helpful whenever we needed anything. There is also a very nice grocery store about 5 miles away. I would recommend this place to anyone and would not hesitate to rent again!
We had such a great time. The house had everything we needed! Very clean and the water was great too! We can't wait to go back next year for a week!!
This was, by far, the nicest, cleanest, most well-organized, and stocked rental I have ever been in. The beds were comfortable and the view from the master bedroom was beyond compare! The owners did everything possible to make our stay fantastic. The use of a canoe and paddle boat added to the fun. The beach was perfect and the lake pristine. Oh, and the gas grill is better than the one I have at home. There is plenty of room inside and out for 14 people. We can't wait to go back again!
Great, spacious house on the lake. More than enough space and bathrooms for our group of 7 adults. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again for a trip to the G.R. area.
