Comfortable home with everything you need!

We spent the Fourth of July week and had a lovely time! We shared the house with a few small families and it had plenty of space and activities for all. It accomodated all of us perfectly.
We had great weather, so we enjoyed grilling outside. There is plenty of seating outside on the porch for a large group. Also, the two kitchens inside were very convenient. The balcony upstairs was great for relaxing and enjoying the view. We also played board games out there after dinner.
The house was very clean, which is much appreciated. The beds are all comfortable and clean. The bedrooms all had dressers and plenty of closet space. Deb and Doug were a pleasure to work with and the accomodations showed that they have thought of everything we might need during our stay.
The lake was beautiful, very clean and shallow. My son did lots of fishing off of the dock and from the paddle boat. We used the kayaks too, great fun! We had a nice bonfire and enjoyed watching the beautiful sunset.
During our stay, we visited the beach at Grand Haven and Pere Marquette. We also drove up to Silver Lake twice and enjoyed the dunes there. Mac Woods does a great tour of the dunes, which was good for the whole family. Then my husband and our older son rented a dune buggy and took that out on their own.
The house is close to whatever you need, restaurants, highway, drug store, groceries, video store, etc. But it's still far enough away from it all to unwind quietly and relax by the lake. The neighbors are quiet, but very friendly.
The only down sides to this house is that there are some rocks and thorns in the sand by the beach, so young children need to wear water shoes and be careful while playing. Otherwise, it is perfect!
Thank you Doug and Deb!

Owner's Response: We do our best to make our guests' stay an enjoyable one. To add to the fun by the water, we've provided a 10' x 20' beach patio with stepping stones to the dock, along with a small sandbox filled with Lake Michigan beach sand for the little ones to play in. The patio also has a fire ring for evening bonfires - firewood included!
