What can I say, this past weekend was easily one of the best that my family has had. Michael, the owner, met us upon our late night arrival and showed us where everything was in the home, gave us some pointers for the local area, and was quick to give us our privacy. In the morning on Saturday he cleaned off the deck with a leaf blower, popped up the umbrella on the patio set, and put the cushions out in the chase lounges before we were even outside. The home was clean, well stocked with anything we could need, and the views from the deck were nothing short of perfect. The property has trees all around which make for a nice secluded and private setting. Their was a sandy little path from the deck right to our own beach area which was absolutely perfect. The beach was really clean and sandy, there were barely any rocks in the water, and the view was amazing.
The deck had some nice lounge chases and a patio table with chairs and a huge umbrella. There were also some really nice beach chairs that were provided for us to use at the water. The deck also had a nice size chiminea that we used each night for a fire to make smores on. A gas and charcoal grill, as well as charcoal and fluid were provided, we used the charcoal grill 3x and it was great. The wood we burned was also provided and on site. Michael has suggested a local trout farm only about 10 minutes up the road, it ended up being one of the best parts of the weekend! My daughter caught 3 beautiful rainbow trout, they were cleaned and prepped for us, and that evening we grilled them for dinner and had a beautiful setting to dine on the deck looking out at the water.
There was a nice little swing set that my daughter enjoyed, as well as a hammock and a fore pit with chairs down by the lake. We enjoyed some festivities in Harrisville, took morning walks along the beach, and had dinner looking out at the lake each night. There was a nice little outdoor shower for getting the sand rinsed off after a day at the beach which was very useful. Have I mentioned the gorgeous views??
All in all, I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone looking for a great weekend away to enjoy some of what "Pure Michigan" has to offer. The privacy, beach, cleanliness and accommodations, and much more made for a perfect retreat to get away from it all and enjoy some time with family. THANK YOU FOR A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!!
