A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends wanted to get away, without driving too far, and the Lake House was perfect! A short drive brought us to a liitle piece of Heaven in Lake City. The house is super clean, up-to-date, and full of ammenities to make it feel like home. The beach is unbelievable. As we were driving up, we started to get nervous that the pictures might have been "creative" in showcasing how big the beach was. We were so pleased to see it was even better than the pictures when we got there! The lake is clean, and warm. It was perfect for the kids in our group... and for the adults too!

We rented a pontoon from a local marina and had fun cruising tha lake and taking the kids fishing.

This was our perfect vacation!

Perfect vacation The Baxters

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxing time at this bit of heaven. We were so pleased with the cottage, rooms were great, clean and plenty of space. The deck had more than enough chairs and the grill was clean. Playing on the beach or in the water it was a blast and the sunsets were breath taking. We had bonfires at night and went fishing in the mornings. If you like to relax the living room is spacious and comfortable, cable TV, internet, air conditioning what else would you need. The kitchen well equiped with pots, pans, glasses, bowls, dishes. and everything was clean. It felt like we were in a resort, we had the best cottage on the lake. We will be renting this cottage again over and over. If you want to relax and feel like you have been pampered, this cottage has the feeling like home without all the bad things like work.

Owner's Response: Thanks Baxters. We try and provide the extras to make our guests happy and so they want to come back. The rest is the lake and spot we have are fantastic and so that is what makes The Lake House such a great place to spend a vacation. See you this summer... Thanks, Brian Ferrick

A Perfect Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying I have stayed in many cottages on many lakes in northern Michigan and this is the first one that I have came back to. The last 2 summers my family and I have stayed a week here and loved every second of it.

The beach is HUGE and nice and sandy, not rocky and grassy like many others I have seen. Also the lake is wonderful, its big enough to go boating/jet ski/tubing/fishing. The water is nice and clear and a good amount of shallow water that gives you room to play in and is great for kids to walk around in the water.

The Lake House has plenty of room inside and all the amenities you would want. Spacious living room with a big screen TV to gather and watch a movie or play games if you get a rainy day. 2 Full Bathrooms and 3 spacious bedrooms make it very easy to stay with multiple family's/couples. Very large deck to sit outside and enjoy the view.

The other great thing is the location. Lake City is a very nice town, has good places to sit down and eat or grab some ice cream. Within walking/biking distance there is a convenience store.

My family and I will be coming back here for as many years as we can, and make many memories there.

Fun in the Sun!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited this wonder lake house over the summer and we had a fantastic time! The lake and cottage are beautiful! The cottage was perfectly located directly on the beach which worked out wonderfully for our family!! The cottage also has beautiful views inside and out. We really enjoyed having breakfast and watching the lake from the large deck!! The cottage had many wonderful amenities, including lots of space, beautiful furnishings (not normally found in rentals), two full baths, a dishwasher and washer and drying - everything we needed!! We truly had a great time and will most definitely be returning to this wonder lake and spectacular cottage!

LOVED the Lake House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented this Lake House twice and have had a wonderful vacation each time!! The lake and beach are unbelievable and the Lake House is truly spectacular! The Lake House is extremely clean, has updated appliances and plenty of room!! The great room was our favorite spot in the house - large and spacious and open to the kitchen not to mention the beautiful view of the lake!! Having two full bathrooms, a washer/dryer and dishwasher made our stay stress free! It was such a pleasure to walk out onto the deck, enjoy the view and only be steps from the gorgeous beach and lake! I would highly recommend this Lake House to anyone who is looking for a beautiful house on a beautiful lake!! We look forward to returning annually!

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Hello from Chicago!

We just wanted to drop a note and tell you how much we loved the house! Our family really had a relaxing time. I didn't want to leave. Maybe next year we will want to stay longer! Our girls loved it too. I especially liked the shallow water. Here is a shot of Shelby (61/2) and Maggie (almost 3). Thanks for the great accommodations .
