Perfect Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property with our 4 boys, ages ranging from 4-9 and my father. The house is well maintained, beautifully decorated with lots of space to sit and hang out. The TV room and kitchen is conveniently located away from all bedrooms. There is a small beach 1 minute away from the house with a creek, lots of rocks and sticks. The boys were so happy with all the natural toys they never touched our plastic, store bought stuff! I cooked most nights and the kitchen was fully equipped. We also used the grill and roasted s'mores outdoors one night by the fire pit. Some nights I enjoyed a glass of wine and watched the sunset from the porch. Other nights we explored the neighboring towns, South Haven and Saugatuck. Glenn store is right down the street and seemed to have most things we needed. We also enjoyed blueberry picking at Earl's. The Mejier in South Haven, about a 10 minute drive, had everything else we needed and more.

All our needs were met

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in front of a sandy road with no outlet - so very little traffic. The deck faced out to the road and the lake - serene and peaceful - there is also a deck for closer views across the road. We cooked most meals at the house and I was able to find everything I needed in the kitchen. The large dining table was great as it seated everyone comfortably. Great beach chairs were available in the basement. We rented a kayak and paddleboard one day and thoroughly enjoyed it - both were dropped off at the beach. Majority of our stay the lake was like glass - very calm and tranquil. Overall everyone agreed we had a wonderful trip in a great home!

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

The home is very nice and accommodating. The location is picture perfect for a week of enjoying the lake , sunsets, bike riding, and just a short drive to neighboring larger towns. The location of the small Glenn Store and the Gift Shop was very convenient.This home is very remote and quite. It's a perfect place for a private vacation.

Beautiful home, property and view

  • 5 of 5

Had read the reviews prior to visiting. Placed was clean, we had plenty of beach chairs, deck chairs, et. Description was accurate. We had four adults and four kids aged 4-8. The house was fantastic, the deck, view and front year outstanding. Surprisingly, the kids spent most of their time in safe and nearby "lagoon" as Lake MI was a bit colder. Would definitely rent again in the future and recommend.

Fantanstic View

  • 5 of 5

Fun & sun on the beach or chillin & grillin on the deck, we did lots of both. The view just can't be beat. So relaxing! The home is fully equiped with everything you need to enjoy your stay. We were blessed with wonderful weather so hardly ventured into town. This home is as nice as pictured with lush beautiful landscaping. We enjoyed the firepit one night and awesome sunsets every night! The Glenn store has great pizza! We plan to return.
