Just okay

  • 2 of 5

The location and outside space was great. We knew the place was small, but they should have warned about the spiral stairs to the loft....a headbanger! The main surfaces were all clean, but the whole place needs a thorough scrubbing. Top of the fridge was sticky with grease and dirt and there were many cobwebs from day one! Baby toys went under both sofas on the first day and they came out dust covered and with a few dead bugs. These were not accumulated from our stay!! This was the first day. Also, the shower has mold all around the door and in the seams of the shower. I knew it wouldn't be top notch since the rent was not that high, but it should be cleaner.

Our family of ten enjoyed the property a lot. it fit our needs very well. The kitchen was great and spacious. The bench seating around the table was great, our whole family was able to gather around. We had great family time around the fire pit.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time on the water during our 2 week stay. We rented a pontoon boat that was delivered to Hemlock lake the day we arrived. The setting was perfect. We were a little cramped with our family of 6, but would have been perfect with a family of 4. The neighbors were really nice and the weather in Michigan and water temperature in July was perfect. We will return sometime in the future.
