Fun week with the family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this cottage! We have been looking for a place to accommodate our large extended family for a few years. We found this cottage in the fall and tried it out for a weekend, and we loved it so much we booked it for a week in the summer. Chris, the owner, was very easy to work with. The house had some renovations over the winter, which really added to the house and gave it a beautiful upgrade. We loved the use of the pool. It was also nice to have just a minimal amount of steps to Lake Michigan. The other great thing was the parking in the driveway. It was really easy to accommodate everyone in our family. We definitely recommend this cottage! We are looking forward to booking it again for next year.

Amazing Stay Valentines Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place Chris and his wife have located on Lake Michigan! It was a wonderful weekend with my group of friends. There is more than enough room to easily sleep 10+ people. With just 6 in our group, we felt like we were living in a mansion!

The pool table entertainment room provides an amazing view of the lake!

Thanks for the great weekend Chris, we look forward to visiting again in the near future!

Great week with the family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week staying at this home. The weather was a little chilly (due to early summer), but the heated pool and jacuzzi were perfect. There were 8 of us and this house had plenty of room to spread out. Even with a little rain, everyone had their own space and enjoyed the quiet time. The owner, Chris was great to deal with. He was very accommodating and helpful. Would do this again!

Beautiful home and breath taking scenery.

  • 5 of 5

Chris and his wife were very professional, generous and accommodating. Property was clean and well maintained. Heated pool and hot tub were ready for us to enjoy. Breath taking view of Lake Michigan from multiple rooms including master bedroom. 100% recommend this property. Great customer service. Chris allowed us to hold an intimate ceremony/casual reception… everyone was wowed by the beautiful lake front property.

Wonderful get away!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful break from city living for a week with the kids! House works incredibly well with kids and everyone can be together and hang out or go and get some private time. Chris is incredibly accommodating. The views from the house are incredible and peaceful! There was a ton of snow on the ground and the lake was mostly frozen so it kind of looked like something out of a syfy movie! Kitchen was great for entertaining too!

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely amazing! We've spent a few weeks here during winter. I've grown up on Lake Mi but never been on/to the lake in the winter. It's beautiful. Words can't properly describe the beauty! We've spent every day walking the beach... Yes, in the winter! Deer have come right up to the house, 14 of them! We have sat in the hot tub every night, watching the snow flakes.

Now, about this amazing house! I feel like I'm at home! There is everything you could possibly need! Each room is beautifully decorated. The house is immaculate. The kitchen has a Viking professional stove, which I was very excited to use! Stocked with every type of pot/pan & utensil you made need! They even had the spices my meal required!

The older kids have made use of the billards/game room! It's been a great area for them to hang out in. While the little kids have loved the lower level! Stocked with toys, and a farm theme!

You couldn't ask for anything better! The owner is so accommodating & helpful! We hope to make it back in the summer months! But honestly, it's beautiful here every season. It nice to step away from reality, and slow down!
