Top notch!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose this cottage because we desperately needed a weekend rest, and didn't want to travel too far (coming from northern Illinois). We wanted something that would feel secluded where we could truly 'rest' and this house looked to be our answer. We arrived late on Friday night and were welcomed to a SPOTLESS, inviting, artistic, cozy guest house. Trees growing all around it made it feel so secluded and falling asleep to the sounds of the stream and the trees blowing was incredibly peaceful. The next morning, we woke up to the most amazing sunrise through the large living room windows--so nice to stay in pajamas and watch the sunrise show from inside :) After taking a long walk along a secluded beach, we popped into town for breakfast, then drove to Kohler (only about 25 minutes from the guest house). We thought the location was absolutely perfect for what we needed and would love to return someday. The hosts, Dave and Linda, were incredibly welcoming, wonderful people. We wish we could've stayed longer. I would HIGHLY recommend this guest house for a quiet getaway--perfect location, wonderful hosts. Top notch all the way!

Paradise on Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a perfect retreat for a relaxing getting away. The sunrise is visible from the living room and you can enjoy the beach right outside your door. We enjoyed walking on the beach and watching the wildlife in the woods. The Mc Faddens were outstanding hosts and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. The cabin is an easy drive to Green Bay or Milwaukee.

We can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I last traveled to this part of Wisconsin about 10 years ago when we stayed at the American Club for our second time. Although it was a nice trip, it was missing something. That something was Lake Michigan. We quickly became bored after a few hours of shopping and antiquing and decided we would never come back. I must admit, after finding this cottage on VRBO I did not know what to expect. Well, to say the least, we were rather surprised. First off, we loved the long, winding wooded road that leads to it. The trees instantly put your mind at ease. The cottage itself was clean, cozy and comfortable with an awesome view of the lake. I could just sit for hours in that living room reading while listening to those waves come crashing in. The beach is just a few short steps away and what a beach it is! We recently spent some time on the coast of Washington ( the Iron Springs Resort to be exact) and the beach here was every bit as nice. The water is so clear and blue! We honestly loved it and will be returning. The price was reasonable and the owner was very kind and easy to deal with. We will never forget just how perfect our vacation here was.

Lake Michigan Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

It was a relaxing week for us to be on Lake Michigan! The cottage had everything we needed although the slow internet speed was frustrating, but speed in that location is a challenge. My daily walks on the beach were refreshing after the heat of the cities. It was a cool week over all so we even used the heat one night! The cottage has all you need: small but very nice refrigerator! Makes wonderful ice and fast! Nice TV! We cooked several meals on the grill.
