Perfect place for our family needs!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home this weekend as we celebrated my daughter's graduation from University of Notre Dame. The house was perfect!! It was clean, spacious, peaceful, and just a short drive from the University. My family was able to spend quality time enjoying meals and just personal time visiting. Thank you Shea for sharing your home :)

My family and I had a wonderful time at this location. We needed a central spot for celebrating her graduation and this was perfect. The house was very spacious, clean, and had everything that we required (we did all our cooking). The view from the living room is very relaxing! Too bad we couldn't use the pool or do much outdoors due to the weather. All in all, I would recommend this place for others. You will get great value for your money.

From the moment I sent the email and received a response, I knew we made the right choice choosing this Buchanan home! The location is ideal; close to activities, but far enough to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of Michigan. Home is clean, spacious, has just about everything you can need. The bedrooms-two with queen beds, one with double and a bunk along with a trundle bed. Room for everyone. Kitchen well stocked. Living room and family room, each with tvs. Only regret is it wasn't warm enough to enjoy the in-ground pool that was closed for the season. Shea is responsive, friendly, and anxious to make your stay pleasant and memorable. Look forward to visiting this home again in the future!

Clean and spacious. Very quiet and relaxing.

We had a great time here. Because of the weather we couldn't take advantage of the outside grill and seating but overall we had a great time. Will definitely recommend this place for others and will plan on coming back again. The house itself was nice and big. Our group of six had ample room and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our food.

Everything we needed !

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our family to stay at for being in town for a wedding. Plenty of room, clean, and convenient. Very nice overall stay, and glad to have everyone at the house for socializing and time together. Would recommend this house for anyone needing a rental.

So happy we found this house!

  • 5 of 5

Planned a surprise getaway with two moms (dads are still mad we left them at home) and five kids and we were so lucky to have picked this house. The kids (aged 10 - 6) ran back and forth squealing with delight as they came across the bedrooms, the Wi/PS, the multiple family rooms, the foozball table, and just about lost it when they caught sight of the pool. When searching for a house we really debated between being close to the beach or having a pool (that was still affordable) and do not regret our decision for a second. The drive to the beach was less than 30 minutes and we had the pool steps away for when we were home. Was also impressed with all of the extras (pool toys, games, cooler, beach chairs, yard games, etc.) that are at the house. Everything was so clean and in great condition. Could not recommend this house more.
