Almost perfect

  • 5 of 5

They don't give you half stars but if they did this home was a 4 1/2 star. The only reasons I can't go that extra half were questionable cell coverage and a grill that needed a little work. The owners assured me that would change so I am sure you will enjoy a 5 star experience.

First the owners were very accommodating and flexible. The house was perfectly laid out for a family gathering with plenty of room to sleep and move around. It was very clean and the furniture was beautiful. The lake was perfect for cruising or any other boat activity. Bring your fishing rod there was plenty of that going on. The deck and backyard were wonderful places to hang out and watch the kids play on the beach and enjoy the water toys that were at our disposal. Great fire pit made for relaxing evenings watching the northern Michigan stars.

Location was only a couple hours north of metro Detroit. Secor Lake Marina were also very accommodating with our pontoon boat rental.

I would highly recommend this property.

Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Every year, we, as two families, take a week and rent a property in a different area in Michigan. We have been doing this for over 10 years and this week/property did not disappoint!!! The home was as advertised and included all amenities referenced. It was very clean and able to comfortably accommodate 10 of us. The beds were good quality and the kitchen table with benches very unique - a nice touch allowing all of us to gather. The weather was outstanding and we spent most of our time outdoors. The yard set up was ideal with the sand area leading into the water and the decorative concrete patio with fire pit and numerous chairs. We trailered a boat and found the waterways to be a pleasant surprise. We explored a number of tributaries that feed Secord Lake and there were two different marinas for fueling on the water. We found the neighbors to be pleasant, which is not always the case as a renter. A subset of our group golfed at a nearby course and found it to be reasonably priced. West Branch was relatively close for a mid week Walmart run. Only experienced one issue and to the owner's credit it was addressed promptly. The AC compressor was not functioning - once contacted, the owner had a local repairman out within 24 hours to replace a fuse. The only reason for sharing this is to give an idea of how the owner was to work with. Would definitely recommend this property for those considering a rental in mid-Michigan.

Room for everyone

  • 5 of 5

Five siblings, their mom, their spouses, their kids - even a (great) grandchild...there was plenty of quality space for all. We generally had great weather during our stay, so the beach got plenty of use all day long, and then campfires every night. Everything we needed to cook complete meals (minus the food) was in the kitchen.

Do yourself a favor when you reserve this great house and call Secord Marina to reserve a pontoon boat for a few days so as to be able to fully enjoy the river - we went through 3 tanks of gas in the boat, between cruising, visiting, and tubing (and playing at the sand bar).

Great stay for our larger family

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house that was very comfortable both inside and out. We had 10 adults and 5 kids and it was plenty big for us. The beach area and lake were great for the little ones and the big kids. There are a couple of nice sand bars on the lake as well. Nice area for riding bikes with the kids around the neighborhood.
