Be Ready to do your own Cleaning Here!
I'll start with the positives:
Beautiful Sunsets over the lake. Nearly 200 yards out of 2-3 feet depth in the lake with a sandy bottom to walk in...great for the kids. Hopefully you like to play in the water because the yard is tiny. There were plenty of glasses, plates, pots, pans and utensils.
And now the negatives:
The "Greeter" never showed up to walk us through the cottage and just left the door unlocked. When we walked in we noticed the smell of urine throughout the entire main floor. The owners must know about this because there were several scented candles left out with about 25% of the wax left in them from previous renters burning them to aid in the covering of the smell. We had to burn candles every day as well. The "Dock" is unlevel, twisted, and unsafe to walk on, so the kids couldn't even try to fish off of it. The "trash bin" outside is dilapidated and has holes in the bottom where black squirrels and other critters were going in and out and leaving a trail of trash with them after every visit. Nobody cleaned this up all week. The yard (and flower beds) is completely overridden with weeds and cigarette butts that were never cleaned up (we don't smoke at all). Apparently there is no lawn service at this cottage. The grill was filthy...grates covered in grease from previous renters. The overall cleanliness of the cottage was disgusting...we spent the first day and a half just wiping things down and clearing cobwebs from corners just to make it somewhat livable for the week.
Needless to say, we won't be back.
Our cabin is a beautiful place to stay! We take pride in our home and wish you would have contacted us so we could have fixed any issues you had. When renting you have our number provided, which we could have arranged for the issues to be fixed right away. The candles are for emergency purposes (power outage) not to cover up smells, we'll be replacing them with battery operated candles. We are going to correct any issues that exist next week so others can enjoy the cabin the way we see it!

The place is very large and cozy. Having 2 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms was great with 6 people staying at it. Fishing was wonderful and locations is a 5 minute walk to a wonderful produce stand and a wonderful butcher (you have to try the bacon!). Sunsets are amazing! A/C is an added bonus for extremely hot days (otherwise, breeze should more than adequately cool the cabin).
We used the rental for a sibling group gathering, and it was ideal! Lots of very nice outdoor spots to relax, inside offered all the comforts of home. Our greeter was very nice and made himself available to us, and the owners took care of all our questions quickly. We'll be back!
Cottage was great!
The cottage accommodated kids & grandkids easily. Enjoyed tv's in the bedrooms and the luxury of air conditioning. The jacuzzi was nice & relaxing. Very convenient location, close to town. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The only thing I could suggest to add is having wi-fi available. We hope to be back next year. Thanks Dave & June for the wonderful vacation!
We are looking in to wi-fi for the lake front home on Houghton lake.
