Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5
My parents and I had such a wonderfully relaxing time. The cottage was located on a nice, quiet, dead end road. The patio and almost all the windows from inside the house had beautiful lake views. Susan & Dennis were very nice and easy to work with as well. We would definitely recommend this cottage!

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful weekend here and highly recommend it. The location is incredibly peaceful and provides a very relaxing get away. Though small, the lake was certainly large enough to enjoy. The lake is very nice and seems clean for a lake of its size. There were always a couple boats out fishing, skiing, or tubing, but everyone seemed to have plenty of room and it was by no means crowded. We did a good bit of fishing off the pier - which was quite easy. Though the fish were small there were plenty! The house itself is beautiful and pristine - extremely clean. The owners did a great job when they built it and have been keeping it up very nicely - they were also wonderful to work with.

Stop Looking...You Have Found The Perfect Place To Stay!

I could write an essay about our fantastic stay at this beautiful cottage. But I will keep it simple and let you know that the cottage will meet and exceed your every expectation. The property is gorgeous and we absolutely loved the quiet surroundings! No matter your reason for staying at the cottage, you will be glad you did. Our only regret was not getting to properly meet the owners. Hopefully next time.

Owner's Response: It was wonderful to have your family as our guests at Bristol Lake Cottage. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The fishing pole you left behind has already been enjoyed by other guests, so thank you for that! Sorry we missed seeing one another--between out-of-town trips and your busy schedule we were like two ships passing in the night! Hope you will consider the cottage again if your travels should bring you to Michigan.

a peaceful spot and all is provided

  • 5 of 5
I chose this location as it was extremely close to some family I have in the area without knowing too much about the lake, the house etc. Wow PEACEFUL ! This lake is so quiet and so nice. Water is clear and refreshing. Dennis and Susan have designed the house inside and out to maximize your stay and relaxation. The outside space is so perfect for grilling, fire pit, docks. fully equipped kitchen ! I never heard a single car pass the house and it was such a refreshing setting. We are already planning on return trips. The Briggs are very easy to work with .

Bristol Lake

  • 5 of 5
We had a truly relaxing mini vacation at Bristol Lake. We were able to invite my parents-in-law to join us for a day. I can not say enough about this rental, the owners were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The cottage was perfectly planned, had everything you need, and comfortable with a gorgeous view of the Lake. We would recommend this property to anyone. Thank you Susan and Dennis for such a memorable get away. It was sad to leave your beautiful home, but hope to come back next year. :-)

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I needed a relaxing vacation and this wonderful cottage provided that and more. It is a very nice cottage with everything you need. The brick patio is about 20 feet from the water, the 2 docks were a great place to sit and fish or even read. The lake is very quiet throughout the week. There are some nice restaurants about 20 minutes away. The owners are very nice and helpful. We will return in the future and especially recommend it to couples looking for a relaxing getaway. We thought the place was nicer than the photos indicated.
