Wonderful place for a week of family fun

  • 5 of 5

Linda's home, neighbors and Pleasant Lake provided my family a wonderful week of fun. I couldn't recommend this rental any higher than I do. My extended family was able to rendezvous with us at the lake home, my children were able to have a week of outdoor Michigan fun, and my wife was able to ecscape to Ann Arbor for some shopping fun. Linda was the perfect hostest and has assembled an amazing fun house with such a variety of indoor/outdoor entertainment.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! Its great to be able to provide a nice getaway for families. Safe neighborhood and being able to watch your children from the deck, lawn, or on the beach is so much better than struggling with hotel rooms. After renting out our lake house, we now try to rent homes whenever we travel.I hope you stay with us again!

Cozy escape

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean, comfortable and well insulated (it was VERY cold in Michigan that week.) Excellent view of the lake and winter sunrises. The owners were very accommodating and friendly, but not intrusive (they live across the street.) It is at least 15 minutes from just about anything, but only about 20 minutes from Ann Arbor. Be aware that there is no internet, spotty cellphone service, and no cable for the TV; we didn't mind terribly for our four night stay, but some people might. The house is very well supplied with video tapes, games and puzzles and children's toys. We had a very pleasant, relaxing time, which is what we were after.

Wonderful Stay: Overdue and Just In Time

  • 4 of 5

Was exactly what I/we needed, and matched exactly what was listed on this rental site. Quiet, peaceful, simple. House was well appointed with "the little things" -- the day to day stuff that most folks would overlook. Location was close enough to get back to 'real life' if necessary, but removed enough to be a step back to a different, simpler time, including the little convenience store on the other side of the lake. Owner was friendly, forthright and available in case of any issues, and was responsive via email during the process. Rental and payment process was simple and timely, and my deposit was returned quickly.

I would highly recommend this little charmer to family and friends wanting to get back to simple and peaceful. One caveat -- hardly a cell phone signal so be prepared. I'm sure this will not be my last time visiting this particular location. Would also be a real nice getaway in the fall when the colors start showing!

What wonderful hosts! We fell in love with this place the first year and planned the 2010 vacation before we left. The house is gorgeous with every thing you would ever need. Great swimming off the sandy beach area. Huge yard with fire pit, they provide everything! Just bring the family. For the fishermen, this is one of the best panfish lakes I have ever fished. We quit when our arms got tired. Tons of gills, crappie, largemouth and a few perch in between. If you are looking for value, this location is second to none.

We had a BLAST!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a full week in this house over the July 4th week. This place has everything you need and more! Plus, if you do need anything else Linda and Dennis (the owners) will get it for you or let you know where to go to get it. Very nice people, fishing is excellent!!! We had camfire's every night and had a lot of guest. Great tour of the lake on their pontoon boat. Just stick to their rules and leave the place like you find it, like we did, and you will get your deposit back right away! AWESOME GETAWAY! We miss the place already...Thank you!!!! We'll be back!!!
