Great location, great home, great fishing

  • 5 of 5

Very clean up to date home. The grandchildren enjoyed the fishing off the dock, and so did grandma and grandpa. Nice swimming also right out front.

But the best part was hearing the loons in the morning while sipping coffee looking out over the lake. Great place! Thanks again.

Golden Week

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th anniv. here with family. What a perfect spot. The kids really enjoyed the lake and fishing. The boat we rented was very nice. We renewed our vows on the beach with the beautiful lake behind us. Give this lovely home a try.

We celebrated our 50th anniv. with kids and "grands" at this perfect location. The highlight was our renewal of vows on the beach with the beautiful lake background. Pam was great to work with. Try this beautiful spot.

Great house on a good fishing lake

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you to Pam for letting us stay in her beautiful house this fall. Everything was very well stocked and clean, the layout was perfect for our family (4 adults and two kids) and even though the weather was miserable, we still had a wonderful time.

Some of the highlights include adorable decor, great off-the-dock fishing (sunfish, bluegill, perch, large & smallmouth bass), very comfy living area and a game cabinet that included Cards Against Humanity (bonus points!).

The beach looked like it would be great in the summer but in the fall it was an acorn minefield. Luckily, that entertained my 3-year-old just as much as sand castles.

We'll be keeping this place in mind for another trip, preferably in the summer; but the leaves were gorgeous!

Great Property - Great Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Harrison Lake House. The home is clean, the layout is convenient, and everything was well stocked. The kitchen and living room are on the lower level, so it's easy to watch after your children if you are in the house. Our four children had a blast fishing off the dock and playing in the water and sand. The owner is very easy to work with and was prompt in getting out contracts and returning the security deposit. I would definitely stay here again! Be sure to rent a stand-up paddle board from Michigan Paddle Boards - their information is on the cork board in the laundry room. The owners were awesome! The hotel across the lake (Lakeside Inn??) also rents row boats and canoes. The boats were poorly maintained and they were not at all friendly. Definitely avoid them. Everything else was just great!

Summer Vacation 2012

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for the first time last year. The upgrades and improvements were GREAT with plenty of space for everybody. We took my family from Canada and it was the nicest most spacious cottage they had ever seen!!!(We used to own a cottage in Grand Bend, Ontario, Canada). My son caught plenty of fish off the dock and the neighbors were great as they took us out on their pontoon boat since we had not rented one. The bar and the kitchen on the main floor are great for entertaining, plenty of sleeping space upstairs for everybody to get away from the action downstairs. We will be returning to this cottage in July 2013 and Pam has been a wonderful host for us:)
