Awesome place, great boat and wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay - we liked it so much we came back for a second stay. The house was clean, had all the household items you need for a week stay, including washer and dryer. Paul made sure we had plenty of firewood for our nightly bonfire with S'more's - he so graciously left all the makings for on the kitchen table for us when we got there! The pontoon boat was really nice, ran great and very clean!! It all made for a very relaxing week!

A real vacation !

  • 5 of 5

Clean - Organized- Professional Service- Safe- Location

Lots of great things have been said in other reviews and I will ditto them all.

Paul is the best owner I have ever dealt with- he really goes overboard to make it a great vacation for his guests.

The boat is awesome and used for everything.

Caught bass and pike. Lots of sunfish off dock for little ones to catch with a worm or wad of bread on a hook. They jump right on.

Power went out one night an full house generator kicked in and kept everything running. Central air was great for sleeping.

Paul gives you more wood than you can burn in a week - we tried.

We used paper plates to save washing.

Everything had instructions clearly labelled.

We brought a utility trailer for bikes and toys ect.

Room in driveway to park no problem.

I have rebooked for next year.

Good Time - The Burtons

Very Enjoyable-Everything Was Covered

  • 5 of 5

Where do we start. All we can say is Paul (Owner) had all the basis covered for this rental. From the reservation process to the day we showed up, Paul definitely had it all covered with the amenities and the accommodations for this place. There was even a welcoming gift when we arrived. The big hit was the Pontoon boat. We used it for everything. Tubing, Fishing, Strolling the lake, Sunset cruises and simply just hanging out at the Sandbar for the day. The cottage had everything we needed to make our stay Just Right and Enjoyable! There was 9 in our party and the ages ranged from ages 11 to 82. Everyone had a Great time! The location of the cabin in relation to our residence was just the right distance for traveling. My brother-in-law is an avid outdoorsman, he indicated that the Fishing was Extraordinary and we even had a Fish-Fry our last night at the cottage with the fish that were caught for the week. My daughter brought a friend for the week, and they were both busy with everything there was to offer as it relates to Lake Living. They Kayaked, went paddle boating, enjoyed the Sandbar as much as the adults did, and they commented on the WI-FI that was available for their entertainment. The property layout was also a big hit. The property itself, sits up high (Elevation-wise) in relation to other properties around the lake. This made for great view of the lake and a great photos. We also took Yard Games such as ladder ball, Bean Bags, and the game Yardzee, which was also fun. Fire Pit was great and we used it every night we were there. Overall-5 Star Stay! Our hats go off to the Owner-Paul for thinking of everything as it relates to Lake Living and Relaxation. Thanks Paul for everything, Great Place for Any Family. We are even considering booking for next year as well.

Thank You - The Jazz's, Stawaras, and the Sammons Families.

Excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a weeks stay and completely enjoyed ourselves. The house has all the conveniences of home (air, washer/dryer, wifi, etc.) but with a gorgeous lake and boat. The house is completely stocked with towels, linen, bedding, blankets and plenty of pillows. The kitchen is well stocked too, with appliances, dishware, pots & pans, utensils, etc. The only thing we found missing was a potato peeler, for which we added two. Three of our four adult children dropped in throughout the week and loved it as well. Our 10 year old grandson fished and swan his heart out. It was a relaxing week and perfect getaway.

The gas can for the boat was not where the instructions said it would be, so we called the owner who immediately answered and told us where to find it.

Our daughter and her family rented the same week directly across the lake from us with very similar furnishing, minus the towels & bedding which they had to bring, plus no air. They paid $700.00 more than our rental, albeit it was dog friendly.

Highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants convenience and some peaceful downtime.

Thank you Paul Bailey.

Harbor Beach, Mi, USA

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in August 2015, ages range from our youngest grandchild at 18 months old, to my husbands 80 year old mother. Fun for the whole family. The pontoon boat was great, we used it for fishing, swimming at the sand bar, at the public beach across the lake, and for evening cruises. There is a nice fire pit, safe for the children, Paul had a full supply of dry fire wood on hand. The beach area at the cottage is well groomed, our grandchildren built several sand castles.

The cottage is clean, the kitchen is well equipped, plenty of towels, bedroom linens and blankets, all of great quality. Washer and dryer is a huge plus! We enjoyed breakfast on the deck, watching the sunrise and listening to the loons.

Paul has plenty of outdoor furniture, we enjoyed most of our meals outdoors!

Just before our arrival, a large storm went though the area and lightening damaged a part on the central air unit. Paul came up to the cottage right away, installed a window unit, and got a repair man out the very next day for the central air. So we were very comfortable. While Paul does not live nearby, he was attentive and easy to contact.

We would go back in a minute! We recommend Paul's cottage for any one looking for a great place to get away, whether your goal is pure relaxation, or playing hard! We opted for both!

THE place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from the cottage in Hale, MI, and are ready to go back! The cottage was lovely, yet very comfortable. It was the perfect place for a week-long unwind. We used the pontoon boat twice a day, floating/cruising around the lake was fabulous and very relaxing. We had campfires and s’mores at night and beautiful sunrises over the lake. Everything we needed was there, from forks for roasting marshmallows to a great coffee pot to a washer and dryer. There were chairs around the campfire, a table and chairs on the deck, lounge chairs on the lawn – did I mention that this is the place to relax? Paul is a fantastic host and so very easy to work with. We are looking forward to next summer already!
