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!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage in late June and had a wonderful time. The cottage was beautiful and everything in it was top quality from the cookware to the bath towels. The pontoon boat was a fantastic inclusion and was very nice. Paul, the owner, was great and very patient responding to our every need and question. We have stayed at a number of VRBO rentals and this was a great value. We highly recommend it.

Great family get-away

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend at the "Loon Lodge" with husband and 3-yr old daughter. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well-kept. All the comforts of home provided - full kitchen, laundry facilities, bbq grill, comfortable sleeping quarters, living room, awesome deck. Owner provides linens and firewood - a welcomed amenity not usually offered. The pontoon boat was a huge bonus and we spent many hours cruising around the lake. The beach provided great entertainment for our daughter and the sandbar in the middle of the lake was perfect for swimming and hanging out. Nice, grassy lawn for playing. Owner very helpful, friendly and easy to work with. Definitely would consider renting this property again!
