Four bedroom home with beautiful contemporary interior on one and one half acres situated on a bluff overlooking quiet Lake Allegan. Gorgeous views abound from every room in the house with a deck running the entire length of the upper level allowing long leisurely dinners overlooking the lake, woods and pool. Plenty of places to relax: the window seats, the hot tub, the master bedroom waterbed, the multiple decks in the woods leading down to the dock, the chaise lounges, the hammock. And all have beautiful views of the lake. Even the gym, complete with Stairmaster, free weights, treadmill and multi-station weight machine has a view of the lake. There are two wood burning fireplaces for wintertime coziness whether reading a book in the great room on the main level or enjoying a movie downstairs in the media room.
A very tranquil retreat. People comment that even if they are there for just a day, it feels like a much longer time because they get so relaxed in such a serene environment.
The location is peaceful and the views breathtaking. Since it is only 2 1/2 hours from Chicago, it is easy to get away on a spur of the moment weekend.
We stayed in this house this summer, returning after our original stay about five years ago. This time around, we realized that nothing had been updated - not even the bedding. And more of the owner's personal belongings were viewable than ever before.
In the end, the owner tried to keep our deposit stating several things we'd done wrong, including taking a bed pillow we don't have - and would not have wanted given the age of the linens. Eventually, after being threatened in emails, we were able to get most of our deposit back...2 months later.
I'd think twice before contracting this home. We've stayed in over 20 VRBO-type of places and have always been delighted. This time was a big disappointment.
