Karen Tichy purchased this house in 2005

Why Karen Tichy chose Michigan

This property offers every outdoor experience you could dream of. Hiking, boating, fishing, biking, nature watching. It is an all encompassing experience that offers many beautiful, quiet moments in nature. It is also very convenient to travel to from the metro Detroit area. Get the up north feel without the 4 hour drive.

What makes this house unique

Sitting on the deck and watching the water and wildlife is beautiful. We also enjoy kayaking, boating, and fishing. The front yard is just as amazing with the wildlife roaming the corn field and private lane. Ask about Weekly Rates.

Great home in wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

This rental is a great place. The home is clean and the location is so convenient! Great area with many things to do. The waterfront is gorgeous. Every day we see a different set of animals. Deer, ducks, swans. The private road is so nice and provides you with lots of peace and quiet. The price is reasonable, and the property manager was very accommodating.

Lovely location, but...

  • 2 of 5

Riverfront house on quiet, leafy cul-de-sac, surrounded by farmland. Had a great time eating on the scenic deck, canoeing on the river, exploring the lakes/beaches/towns in the area. But besides the location, this was one of our worst VRBO eperiences. The basement (where two of three bedrooms are) smelled strongly like dog and masking perfume. The cheesy koi pond had a decaying dead rat floating around. Dead bird in the grass. The bbq grill was completely out of propane. Worst part though, the feeling that the "property manager" stingily hovered. Despite the place being empty at least one day beforehand, and us politely asking to check-in even slightly early, she "cleaned" right until the 3pm check-in (and her email says she reserves the right to clean until 5pm if need be). THEN SHE ARRIVED AT 9:45am (!) FOR THE 10am CHECKOUT AND WATCHED US PACK THE CAR!!! Not to mention the VRBO listing says 11am checkout, but her emails demand 10am or lose hundreds of dollars! Half a grand + fees for barely a day and a half, with not a minute of grace period? Along with the smells and dead animals, kinda ruined the beautiful location.

Owner's Response: "Dee"- We are so happy that you enjoyed our scenic deck and beautiful town. We love it there, and that is why we have maintained this home for the last 11 years. I'm sorry that our home didn't meet your smell test. We don't agree with you, and neither do the 100 other guests that have stayed in our home over the last 7 years. It's unfortunate that you didn't like the quality of our Koi pond. My husband built it by hand, and we are quite proud of it. I'm sure yours is quite extravagant and luxurious. It's unfortunate that you were unable to comprehend our simple lease agreement, that clearly denotes the check in time, check out time, and the fact that we don't provide propane for the bbq grill. You see, we are not clairvoyant, and unable to determine when someone else depletes the tank. This is why we provided you a clear way to resolve this debilitating issue. Also, if you were just able to ask for assistance in comprehending the lease agreement, check in and check out times are clearly denoted. We are unsure where you found a discrepancy. Please be assured, we will make sure to have a strong, severe discussion with all of the birds, animals and wildlife that inhabit our country home and let them know you really didn't appreciate them dying in the yard during your vacation. Finally, it's unfortunate that you didn't seem to appreciate my property manager's attention to detail and support during your stay. She's amazing, and we love her. And so do the 100 other guests we have hosted over the last seven years. Karen Tichy - Property Owner

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, lovely home. The pictures do not really do it justice. We had a great time and loved being in the home. Great location, out of the way, but very close to a Walmart, Target, VG's (24 hours), etc. My only advice to anyone visiting the home is to do a thorough inventory before you go out and buy anything. We found so many things left behind in the nooks and crannies of the house and realized that we didn't have to purchase quite a few things. For example, my family left plenty of toilet paper, laundry detergent, spices, coffee, to last quite a while.

Can't Wait To Go Back!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this place justice! The house is way better in person, The only loud noise is the train that comes by one a day maybe, but other than that, this house was amazing and I can't wait to rent it again next year!
