Incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do it justice. We loved our stay. The house is the most beautiful on the lake. Very quiet, relaxing, incredible view and fantastic fishing.

We couldn't be more happy with our stay and we are already talking about booking the home again.

Great secluded home.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our family for the week, because my kids love to be able to fish and swim from where we stay. This place was perfect for them and they spent many hours fishing, either from the boats provided or the dock. Even though the place is secluded it was not far from Lake MI, making it the perfect place to hang out between checking out the area. You could easily spend a portion of your day swimming or relaxing on a beautiful beach on Lake MI. Rose, the property manager was also a pleasure to work with, she even showed up after our phone calls kept being dropped, just so she could answer my questions. I would love to return.

Life in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

The home was beautiful and well stocked with all amenities.The boats and lake were nice as well.Didn't catch any fish but was very scenic .Rose was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.The area is the reason I gave it only 4 stars,it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere.About an hour from any Major Town.We traveled to Ludington,Muskegon.& Traverse City for sightseeing.So if you want to get away from it all this is the place to go.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your Review Darlene! Glad you enjoyed your stay and touring the area! The seclusion of this area is what attracts a lot of our tenants, no traffic or crowds to fight, just lots of peace, quiet & wildlife to see. Well worth the half hour drive in most directions to get to Ludington, Manistee or Cadillac if you want other things to do than relax! Hope you'll visit us again!

Relaxing treasure

  • 5 of 5

Our fourth year visiting was just as enjoyable and memorable as the first. Caught three meals worth of fish on the lake while using the paddle boat. The wrap around deck and high quality bbq are huge pluses. So glad to see the firepit and chairs now provided down by the water! A great addition to the experience. Thanks for all you do to keep the place clean, Rose, and for always being available to answer questions if needed!

Great private location with everything you need

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very secluded which we loved. The lake was very quiet, even on labor day weekend. You can't really swim right by the dock but the swimming dock is a great place to swim. The two boats were great and easy to use. The cabin had everything you needed and the deck was so nice to eat at. A very nice place to stay and I would definitely stay again.
