Spacious, Fun, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough nice things about Bob and Sue's Beach house! There was PLENTY of room for my family of 5, plus room for my mom to stay with us, too. The pool table was a real hit, and the nearby beach was FAB!!! The house provided ALL of the necessities and some things you might not think of (including a blender, cheese cutter, plenty of pitchers, an ice maker, books and games, a toddler bed, etc.).

The property was in great shape: clean, well-kept, in a nice area. Bob was wonderful to work with and got back to us with all of the information we needed - and great directions to the house. I would totally recommend renting here. Absolutely. 100%!

We would LOVE to come back again!

Comfortable and roomy, very nice owners!

  • 5 of 5

Ok, first of all I must say the pics on here do NOT do this house justice. They look ok but dont give you a real idea of just how wonderful this house is. I have not one complaint. The rooms are nice sized, the beds are comfortable and you dont need to bring a thing except yourself, a camera, and food! The owners met us there, gave us the tour, and then left us alone the whole week so we had the utmost privacy. The kitchen has everything you need and although there is a nice table to eat at inside we ate every meal out on the deck (except the one night it stormed then we ate in the fun room downstairs and watched a movie). This is a great family house (it even has a toddler bed in one of the rooms). Be sure to vistit Washington park beach and zoo while you are there (only $6 entrance). Also they even provided beach towels even though we brought our own we will know for next time that is one less thing we have to pack. There is a washer and dryer so we didnt go home with any dirty clothes. Cant wait untill next year and pray that the Bob and Sue are still renting... Thank you for a great stay

A very pleasent stay by the lake.

  • 4 of 5

The house was as promised, well kept and in a quiet setting. The rooms were large with good furnishings. The property itself was in pretty good shape and the equipment all functioned as it should. All in all an "A".

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was completely comfortable, with roomy bedrooms, comfy beds and plenty of room for a family of five. The adorable Nautical theme was everywhere, and the front yard was sandy. We wouldn't have had to bring anything, as this place had everything we needed. My kids loved the pool table in the basement, and I loved eating my breakfast out on the deck each morning. We brought our bikes and enjoyed a ten mile bike ride to stop 42 each morning. The walk to the beach was only a few blocks and it was fun to ride our bikes to the public beach and marina at Washington Park. This cottage was a perfect match for my family. Non of us wanted to go home.

We had a nice week!

  • 4 of 5

Our holiday was so nice. We are visitors from Germany (four persons) and the cottage is very beautiful. We felt very comfortable. The owners were so kind to us.

We will retain fond memories of the time.

Thank you for all.
