Mill Lake - where the livin' is easy

  • 5 of 5

Cozy house on beautiful lake with super friendly community of people, who are happy to share the fun with you or leave you alone so you can read a book.

Great layout to home allows for those who want to sleep in, to do so without any trouble from the rest of the family.

The house is lacking for NOTHING. From vegetable peeler to laundry detergent, the house has it all. The coffee pot was acting funny. I mentioned this to the owner, who already knew about the problem, and I was informed a new one would arrive later that day. Three hours later, Ben delivered a new coffee maker.

Will definitely rent again.

Thanks Nicole.

Thanks Ben.

Excellent Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this home! As a family with two young kids under the age of four there were a number of benefits to staying here that allowed us adults to relax as well. For example, since the house is a ranch there weren't any stairs to worry about; while there are views of the lake, the house does not sit right on the water so we didn't have to worry about the kids getting into the water unsupervised; the lake has a lovely, sandy beach that was perfect for the kids to play in and the swim area of the lake has a large shallow area that was great for young children and also guaranteed warm water on sunny days. Furthermore, the house is located very close to the lake so we were able to run back and forth with my preschooler when she needed to use the restroom and having a playground and other kid activities so close meant we never ran out of things to do! I also want to add that the house was extremely clean and equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our time away from home. We truly enjoyed our stay in this lovely house!

Fun family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The house came as advertised which is what you want from VRBO. Great location and all the comforts of home. Mill Lake is a gem, small but private.

Beautiful house on quaint lake

  • 5 of 5

This beach house rental was comfortably equipped with everything we needed. Styled to fit the home - not your typical old cottage decor. Clean, well taken care of and literally steps from the beach. The outside patio is where we spent most of our time enjoying the view and meals cooked off the grill. The kids loved playing soccer and horse shoes in the field across the road and on the playground equipment. We traveled to South Haven and Kalamazoo on our rainy days. I would highly recommend this rental for your stay. Can't wait to come back for another vacation, maybe even a winter stay!

A get-a-way by the lake

  • 4 of 5

A nicely appointed 60's ranch with everything you need to make your stay carefree.

Steps from the lake. Across from a grassy play area and a playground. Tennis court.

The house even comes with board games and DVD's. A short ride to Kalamazoo and a shorter ride to South Haven.
