Guestbook comments from the manager

I rented Campau Heaven for my daughter's wedding weekend. I was looking for a place that was big enough for my family and wedding party. There was penalty of beds and my guests were comfortable. The sun coming up over the lake was breathtaking. The one factor that made our stay special was Karen the housekeeper/contact person. She made sure the house was in tip top shape for our visit. I am giving 5 stars because of her. She made sure everything was perfect. My only con was that the dock needed repair. It really a awesome weekend.

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome! Myself and 18 guys stayed here on a golf trip. We had a ton of space and really enjoyed the hot tub and game room. The location was close to several nice courses and was only 15 minutes away from GR. The owner, Frank, was also extremely accommodating by getting us in last minute for the reservation, assisting with special rates from local courses, and getting us a great price on a party bus through his limo company. Highly recommend this place to large groups.

The captain and his crew very happy thank you

  • 4 of 5

The captain and his crew were very happy we stayed at this very nice facility and went out to Lake Michigan on a yacht beautiful. We came back hang out by the fire the next morning I went to bed thinking for Xbox 360 and then went fishing and cook our salmon from Lake Michigan but a perfect spot hot tub rocks. Love the stars from 4th deck we are very happy please extend us a discount as we want to be part of the email subscription. One problem we had was a little bit of rain, we can get over that. We had to settle for these dates as many of the others already booked we will plan ahead next time thank you

I watched the Michigan vs Penn State foot rockstar

  • 4 of 5

I had a great time in the midst of a little rain but still managed to get some pontoon boat tubing done with my kids and watch the game while grilling!! I had plenty of parking, the hot tub was great, the fishing was even good cooked up some pan fish for lunch! The beds are brand new and plush my kids loved the fort and xbox 360 and I had fun surfing for music on you tube. The cleaner was in a hurry to leave but I was 45 minutes late she gave me a quick rundown and made me feel bad ...again I was late so no problem...there I tipped her to take care of that matter... I am coming back this summer with the inlaws I hope! thank you for the email discount when booking!

Got married near by love this place

  • 4 of 5

My (now) wife and I rented this property for a weekend getaway wedding with our closest friends and family. We got married at Caledonia lakeside park (nearby) on a beautiful afternoon and the rental procedure was painless. We were a little noisier than we had anticipated but the neighbors let us know and it wasn't a problem. I advise carpooling if you are having a wedding style event as we had trouble fitting 14 cars in the available area. Although a few items were starting to wear out and/are in need of maintenance or replacing we were told that they were doing yearly maintenance soon and they were so sorry for the inconvenience.We are looking into doing a 5 year reunion here down the road and recommend you try the place out, it's amazing.

Owner's Response: We would love to have you back your a great group and very nice to talk with as we stayed in touch throughout your stay. We suggest our shuttle services at with vans, limos, buses and charter buses for these type of events at this location. We have many places that maybe better for larger group as this place is awesome its parking can be a issue unless you park at the school on the corner. We would only suggest 60 or less people to keep things comfortable but have had 100 or more. The pontoon boat is large and seats well for larger groups as a rental and I am not sure if you rented that as well but suggest this on your return visit in 5 years. We are in for the long haul will have many improvements for your return this year we added 8 burner gas grill, 6 channel router with 2 device channels, 50 inch smart streaming online television, unlimited you tube video jukebox, 4 full over full with high end 8 inch foam sleeper tops, additional couches now in lower level, pontoon boat, 3rd laundry center, x box, wii and more... We have replaced a few things and added more couches and new beds for the future and your next visit as we are just coming off our long season and found a weekend open to get this done. Thanks again for your review we look forward to your return, remember to stay on our email subscriber list to get specials, and discounts for your return.
