A nice, quiet stay

  • 3 of 5

We spent a nice week at the cottage. House was well stocked with most of what we needed. Val and Mark live right next door and Mark came right over when we had an issue and took care of it right away. The kids had a great time fishing from the dock and caught a lot of fish. The boats were nice to paddle on the lake. The "upstairs" bedroom & family room/kitchen are actually in a separate carriage house, which wasn't clear in the description. A bit disappointing that we weren't all in the same house as we were expecting. The 2 beds downstairs, along with the laundry room, were not easily accessible as there is a tight spiral staircase which made it difficult to carry luggage and laundry down. There is a door that one can access the basement through from the outside if needed. The lake was beautiful, although too mucky for our group for swimming, but Lake Michigan is a short drive away and one can never go wrong with a drive in that area..beautiful! We enjoyed time on the big deck, with plenty of seating and daily songs from the loons.

Beautiful location. Owners were very friendly

  • 4 of 5

Owners were very friendly. Location was beautiful, very private & peaceful. House was clean, kitchen well equipped. It has a quirky layout that lacks a bit of privacy but it worked well for our family of 6. Had access to several different boats which everyone enjoyed.
