More than you would expect from renting a cottage.

Owner goes above and beyond to make you feel at home in vacation. They even left a small (nice) welcoming gift :)

Updated place, modern look, plenty of supplies, clean, welcoming, not enough words to describe this wonderful cottage.

Nice place to stay on vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our family vacation here. Home is clean and comfortable, nicely decorated. Easy walk to lake Michigan beaches (3-4 min walk straight to great beach). Took our bikes and we could keep them in the garage for safe keeping. Nice open floor plan to entertain. Enjoyed fire and smores out back at nights. Would recommend.

Awesome house in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful! It's literally an easy one to two city block walk to either Portage Lake orLake Michigan. The beach on Lake Michigan is just gorgeous. You almost feel like it's your own private beach. The appliances, furnishings and decor are very up-to-date and it's an extremely clean place. (Cleaner than most of the hotels we stayed in!) The owner leaves a manual, almost like the one you'd find in a tells you everything you need to know about the local area: where to get things, where to go for activities, local hot spots etc. It's extremely useful if you don't know the area well. We will definitely be booking again for next year.

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience here in July 2011. Very clean, perfect for families, weekend getaways-the house is a nice set-up. It is not a long walk to the Lake MI beach at all (might want to bring a wagon if you have little ones & have lots of toys, snacks, drinks, etc. to carry though...) and is right down the road from the Portage Point Inn. (Again, not a long walk & it's a beautiful walk!) It is far away enough from everything (fireworks, live bands) so you could sleep any time-very quiet, private & safe-but just around the corner from everything. We had 3 teenagers with us- they stayed busy & had a blast as always. Owners extremely accomodating and easy to work with. We would definitely recommend=two thumbs up!
