This home is used by me, my wife and two children, as a year around retreat. The summers we spend on the beach, biking and hiking near by trails, or taking day trips to near by towns. And the winter we spend skiing and snowboarding at the local resorts. It has been the place of some of our favorite memories of family and friends.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

The views of Lake Michigan are spectacular and change moment to moment and season to season. The location is close enough to everything, yet far enough for a private vacation.

Our home is designed as a place to get away from the world. A place to enjoy time with family, friends and mother nature. For more picture visit Lone Rock Cabin on Facebook.

The beach is beautiful. The home is very nice. When we rented it, we didn't realize that there is a busy scenic highway that runs between the house and the beach. There is also a large (over 100 stair) staircase down to the beach. Neither of these things were a problem for our group, but both were a surprise.

Fantastic house, tastefully decorated and great condition, most of all great location. Renting the place was easy and the owner was accommodating to our schedule for checking in/out. We definitely recommend this place and if you are in the area and we will want to stay at this property again.

Best Time

Steve,

What a week, the weather was perfect and we had the best time. This was our first family vacation in many years. My children and their kids enjoyed walks on the beach, swimming in the lake and we had a fun trip to Mackinaw Island. I sent your VRBO link to our neighbor they are looking for something for the week of Labor Day.

Happy Summer,
Ursula and Family

Steve and Maria,

Just a note of thanks, we had a wonderful time at your house. The sunset views are incredible and we couldn’t keep our kids out of water. We cleaned, put the trash in the shred and left the key on the kitchen counter.

Thanks Again,
Jeremy

Great Time at Lone Rock

  • Submitted: Jul 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2011
Hi Steve,

We had a great time at Lone Rock. My wife appreciated how nice your place was, as she is very particular about where she lies her head at night. The walks on the beach were great, but they resulted in a few extra pounds to haul home, as my family loves picking rocks.

My son was using your older boogie board and it came apart on him. He was not abusing it, but if you need to replace it using some of our security deposit, that is fine.

Your light in the refrigerator and the light over the sink were both not working when we got there.

We thank you again for working with us on the final rate.

Blessings,
John

Hi Steve. Wanted to follow-up to let you know we had a great time at your home up north. My family really enjoyed the home, the views, and the beach. In addition, we cleaned the home (dishes, trash, floors, counters) before we left. We hope that everything checked out ok.

Thanks,

Sandeep

Fabulous Time

  • Submitted: Jul 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
Hi Steve & family,

Just wanted to let you know we had a fabulous time staying at your summer
home in Harbor Springs. The many bike rides, jogs, and adventures the
area has to offer is never-ending and we took advantage of it all.

Yoga, crepes, pot pies, dinner at the legs inn, we are all officially on a diet
now, yum yum. :)

I realized I lumped the security deposit into the final payment for the rental and apologize
for the error. I hope it's not inconvenient for you to send me a check when you are able;
sorry about that.

Hope you and your family are having a great summer!! Hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

Laura

Hello Steve,
This is Tammy Sonnenberg, we stayed at your beautiful vacation home this summer. We had a wonderful time. I wanted to share with you how much it meant that you worked with us and allowed us to enjoy what ended up being our last vacation as a family. My husband John passed away October 12th from a massive heart attack. We are devasted, but we are hanging on to all our memories. And I wanted you to know your generousity in working with us allowed us to spend a wonderful week as a family. We have some great memories of our time with John that week. I just wanted to take the time to thank you and let you know I appreciate you working with John on the cost, as it turned out to be a wonderful gift for me and my children that we will cherish always.
Blessings,
Tammy

Not a beach front house with a few short steps!

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
The house itself was fine although there were tons of spiders and we had a lot of bites all over us so they should spray! We were really excited to have a house on Lake Michigan as advertised but when we got there we found out the house is actually across a busy scenic old highway and that's not so great when you have small children. The house was also advertised as having a few short steps to the water, not the case! The stairs are actually across the street and on a bluff with over 120 steps. The stairs were do able for my husband and I and we carried our 3 year old but my inlaws that came do not have the best knees and my father in law had knee replacement a few months ago so he did the hike once and that was enough. We really were disappointed in the way the house was advertised and would have looked at other houses if we had known about these things.

Owner's Response: This was an Email that was sent to the guest.

Hillary,
Sorry you did not enjoy your stay...I feel your review is a bit unfair, you should look at my VRBO page #343012, the opening description is: Below is copied from my VRBO page's opening statement:

"Beautiful Lake Michigan home on 6 acres with 180 feet of private beach. Home is located on the bluffs of the North shore of Lake Michigan and offers sunsets that will take your breath away. Evening sunsets can be enjoyed from your private beach or the sunset deck. If you are looking for a place to relax and recharge, you found it. Enjoy walks on the beach, biking on the famous 'Tunnel of Tress'. Keep your eyes out for the local Bald Eagles soaring the bluffs and beaches around the house. Close to public boat launch."

Home is located on the bluffs of the North shore. The old highway that it is on, is the famous "Tunnel of Trees" that is also mentioned. Further, the location Map on the VRBO page clearly shows that the house is on the other side of the road. Not to mention your own ability to access things like Google, Yahoo-Maps/Images.

As for spiders, we stayed there the 2wks before you arrived and did not have any problems. And the cleaning staff came through and set the house up for you on the Saturday that you arrived. This year with all the rain the mosquitos have been more of a problem, we got eaten alive. That said, we will look into the issue further and address it, if needed.

In closing, I reviewed all of our emails and at no time did you ask me any questions, other than price and availability. I get many inquiries and some people know the area and ask few question some don't and ask more.

This house is a very special place for my family, i'm sorry that it didn't work for yours. Your security deposit is being mail out.

Sincerely,
Steve Kalapos
