Why Amber chose Northern Michigan

We lived in Alpena for a few years and moved due to job transfer. We really enjoy the area and love the house so we decided to offer the house for rentals for others to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

One of the unique features of our property is the lot size, it's much larger than most lots on the lake so it offers more privacy. Also as the house was our primary residence and was completley renovated by us 7yrs ago you get to stay in a modern updated home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house looks great and the new landscaping is gorgeous. We absolutely love this place!

Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year renting this beautiful home wirh our furry family . No doubt "the best view on the lake." The house is very comfortable with modern and up to date conveniences. The kitchen has all the amenities you could ask for or need including this year a Kuerig coffee maker. Also the huge master bedroom with a ceiling fan is very comfortable with glass windows and doors overlooking the lake. A very nice view to wake up to. We would spend our days by the lake and come up to the covered porch and throughly enjoy the unbelievably beautiful sunsets with drinks before supper . My husband and I both have very busy lives and look forward to our retreat of quiet and peacefuless . We keep coming back, it's perfect for us.

So NICE this snob was thrilled!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I am the pickiest individual about staying places, staying here was a thrill. Clean, beautiful, upgrades galore not to mention the nicest owner ever. I had run across a coffee pot that was broken from prior renters and she made sure it was addressed right away. We rented wave runners, fishing from the doc, just enjoyed the view and peacefulness. My teenagers enjoyed the view of the stars that we do not get here in the city. Hands down a top notch place to stay, my extended family is from Alpena and they raved about the place when they visited.

As for the other comments from the 2 star renter, there is wood for sale at the end of the street for $5 on the honor system we had bonfires nightly. Air condition, we opened the windows and enjoyed the breeze from the lake. This place was great!!! WE will only rent here when I go back to visit. LOVED IT!

Pretty View and Cottage, Disappointed with Experience

  • 2 of 5

The home and property is beautiful, however we were disappointed with our experience. The listing advertised air conditioning (which we purposefully looked for because of my mother has MS and heat is a major issue for her), and there was no air conditioner there and only one small fan. There was also no firewood to make a campfire for smores. We also did not receive our security deposit back because "the grill was too dirty" (though we cleaned it with the grill brush provided), "there was soot in the fireplace" (we did not use the fireplace once), and a hand towel was ruined (ruined because the toilet overflowed and I had to borrow a plunger from a neighbor and then used the bathroom cleaner they provided to clean the floor. The only towels available to clean were the bath towels they left and they were not anything special.) We feel like it was false to advertise air conditioning and not provide it and also to take our entire security deposit. We will not rent this place again.

Owner's Response: These issues come as a complete surprise as I spoke with the guests twice during their stay and only the a/c situation was mentioned. The house is fully stocked with plenty of cleaning supplies. We purchased a new grill this year along with all the cleaning and cooking supplies. Guests were not honest about the number in their party which exceeded the house maximum. The house was left with all the windows open and doors unlocked. Damaged linens by using bleach then wiping up with a chocolate brown bath towel. Broke coffee machine. Damaged lock on lake front doors. Used interior fireplace then left ashes. Didn't clean the grill and left it covered with food debris. Broke coffee pot. Left dirt and sand in the freezer. We expect guests to treat our home with respect and leave it in the condition they found it. In addition, I am available anytime for questions or issues and make that clear to all guests. Yes, the portable air conditioner was removed from the house as the BTU wasn't high enough to cool the space.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was decorated very well with high end, custom appliances. The bed and linens were very comfortable. The weather didn't cooperate, so we were happy to have a beautiful cottage to stay warm in. Actually, this is more like a home than a cottage. We would not hesitate to stay there again when we are visiting the area.

Lake Home in Alpena

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here recently in July 2011, it was most excellent! Totally updated, clean and a beautiful view. I am not a big fan of swimming in lakes and this lake was delightful, no weeds at all! Nearby you can rent a boat or Jetski which was very convenient. The owner is extremely nice and helpful. We will be coming back.
