Beautiful spacious cottage

  • 4 of 5

Great house with lots of room and modern amenities. We did not have beach weather for our stay so we were glad to have the space. Only drawback was an intense sulphur smell to the water.

We loved this cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Kelly's cottage was spacious, charming, and clean. Everything was in excellent shape. The grounds were lovely and the sunsets over the lake were magnificent. The owners were courteous and helpful, the surrounding towns were pleasant, and the location is private and quiet. If there is any downside, it is that the beach by the cottage is narrow and rocky. But there are plenty of beautiful beaches within a 20 minute drive, so this was only a minor inconvenience. Other than that, though, this is a great place and we would definitely come back again.

Great property for extended family.

  • 5 of 5

This property worked out very well for our family of six adults, one toddler and one dog. The layout of the house was very open and there was plenty of space for all of us. We did use the separate cottage which gave everyone more privacy. The house was clean, stocked with beach chairs, cleaning supplies, games and information about the area . The kitchen was very well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. The beach is a short walk away and is only used by the houses on the road so it is never crowded. Being from the East Coast, we had lots of questions about the area and the property and the owner was extremely helpful - responded quickly and with good information. If we came back to this area I would definitely rent the house again.

Beautiful Views - peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

The property is very clean and well furnished. Beautiful home. Views of Lake Michigan are fantastic. We had 3 couples, 2 kids and 2 dogs and never felt cramped. We were able to cook and grill out most of the week. This location in Glenn, MI was perfect to be able to go either north or south and enjoy beaches, shopping and berry picking! Highly recommend!

Lake House Dream

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kelly Cottage was a lake house dream come true. The home was clean, tidy and welcoming upon our arrival and satisfied the needs of seven family members that spanned three generations. The owner, Paul Clinch, was attentive and responsive to all of our questions and requests from our first email request for information until the day we left. The house is only 15 minutes away from anything you might want to do in the area but we found ourselves staying close to home more than we thought because of the beautiful location, especially for sunset views.

We hope to be able to return again very soon.

wonderful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Kelly's cottage was perfect for our family. We had a total of 8 people and it worked out great with the guest cottage. The house is larger than I expected and both bedrooms in the main house are spacious. The house is really a nice layout for a family to spend time relaxing in the main living/dining room as well. I was confused about the bathrooms and had thought that the 2nd bathroom in the main house was on the main floor, but it's actually upstairs with the two twin beds, which worked perfectly for our family. The beach is a little walk from the house with a pretty steep ramp down. Once we were down there, it was gorgeous and there weren't very many people at all. The property sits further back from the road and it's quite secluded, which we also enjoyed.
