We were looking for a private, relaxing place where we could just enjoy the beach, lake, woods - perhaps some festivities in the surrounding area. We did not want to leave all weekend! We kept the fire going in the firepit for four days and nights, it was a little cool so the fire was perfect. During the day, the sun at the deck was found to be a perfect napping location in the breeze and sun. Inside the cottage was cozy, warm and well equipped for any cooking (group of six ladies!) It was raining lightly when we arrived, no matter, we sat out by the fire anyway.
Going back again in 2013, same group of escapees from work.
Perfect stay, highly recommend this location. We arrived and met the owner, toured the cottage and property and were given information about the area and home.
The kitchen was perfectly stocked, the bedrooms and bath clean and fresh linens and towels provided for all of us. With the extremely warm weather it was the nice breezes off the lake we enjoyed, had the option of the firepit or grill to cook outside. Everything was clean and appeared well maintained, even the lawn was beautiful.
We were looking for privacy and a quiet setting for much needed relaxation and we found it. We would recommend this property to anyone who enjoys a beach setting with a warm cozy home.
We arrived at the Cottage and were blown away by the views. The setting and beach were great. The house on the other hand was another story.
The plumbing backed up while we were showering and feces from the septic system was floating around in the shower while we were still using it. Not something I've ever experienced or thought would happen while paying a premium for a vacation rental.
We were also charged a cleaning fee and told a cleaning person had come just the day before. This was not true as the floors were not swept, corners of rooms had cobwebs and bathroom cupboards contained mice feces as well.
Some honesty about the houses septic system and condition would have been great. We didn't expect to be lied too and charged for a service that was not performed.
We unfortunately do not recommend this cottage to Rent.
Property located on Lake Michigan north of Muskegon State Park and south of White Lake; on Scenic Drive near Giles Road.
