Well it's time to go home. It was a great Memorial Day weekend and the weather cooperated. We golfed at the local course and spent the next day fishing on White Lake. It was a little windy, so not too many fish were caught. Today is our son's 21st birthday so we plan to picnic on Lake Michigan to celebrate. This is a very nice, clean home in a beautiful setting.
This is a long over due review and so very deserving of this property and of the owners Jim and Doris.
We were making a last minute get away out of Chicago, and like to bring our (not so little) dogs with us. We have used home away before for other properties, but loved their pictures and the ideas of walks and the beach and night fires, even when we booked in the late part of October. It was everything as described in the property listing.
Their paper work was prompted and contacting them was easy. The directions to the property were easy and great, even at night. And when we woke the next morning what a beautiful sight we saw. The beautiful November clouds on the little black lake were breath taking. The dog run was perfect. Their endless back yard that blended right into Hoffmaster State Park trails that took you right to Lake Michigan was awesome.
The house was a little big for just the two of us and our dogs, but none the less... perfect. It had everything needed to make a great stay. Clean and well maintained, all the kitchenware and appliances were in great working order. Attached garage was convenient. Washer and Dryer were easily accessible and better than the ones I have at home.
We didn't venture away from the property to eat at any local restaurants, we were so wonderfully content staying at the house.
Jim and Doris stopped by to make sure everything was going well and to see if we needed anything. They are very delightful. We could have talked all day.
We would definitely recommend this property and look forward in returning in the fall again. Although, we don't want to recommend it too much, they might get too booked up.!!! Thanks Again Jim and Doris for making us and our four legged family feeling welcome. We still have your Christmas card still hanging on our fridge.
The location is awesome. Trails right down to the beach (Lake MI). Everything you need is there: kayaks, bikes, dog run. Owners are wonderful too.
We had a great time there. The house and property is nice and homey! My sister and I came to chill and relax and it worked out great for us! Just be aware there is no ac in warm and humid weather. The whole house fan helped and so we were fine. We would come back!
The home was exactly as advertised. Very clean,quick access to local lake with kayaks to use. Backs up to State park, can hike to Lake Michigan. Big rooms, lots of space. Pet friendly, our dog loved it.Owner was responsive when minor questions arose. Will return if schedule allows next year. Close to beaches and good restaurants.
We had a great time. The home was stocked well and filled with many things to keep our children entertained.
My wife and I booked a week here with our adult children and spouses, six adults total, and enjoyed the home very much. The general location feels relatively private, but it’s not too far to shopping near Muskegon/Norton Shores. Out front is a shallow lake, with access to rowboat, canoe, and kayaks. Out back is a kennel and fire pit. Beyond the fire pit, and through the woods, you eventually walk into trails at Hoffmaster State Park. We walked to Lake Michigan twice, but for all our beach gear, it was easier to drive around to the state park beach parking area. We brought our own bikes, and one day, we hooked up with the Ottawa County bike trails about ¾-mile south, and biked to Grand Haven for lunch.
Inside the house, we found living, kitchen, and dining areas to have just enough room for all of us. The bedrooms and baths were modern and clean. The master bedroom was particularly large, on the second floor with windows looking out over Little Black Lake.
Thanks so much, we had a great time.
