The Gardens in Douglas, Michigan

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful week while staying at the Azalea and the Lily. They were perfect to accommodate my entire family. My four young grandchildren really enjoyed playing in the backyard, with the beautiful flower gardens. We hope to do it again.

Better than home.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was fabulous. The unit was immaculate and has everything we could possibly need. The beds and furniture were extremely comfortable. Location was ideal. We tried almost every recommendation we were give for dining. The food at each one was delicious. Close to the lake and saw beautiful sunsets. The garden was delightful. It even still had blooming roses. We would love to return next year. Thank you Leslie.

Douglas Jem

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at The Azalea. Wish we had booked in for longer. The property is beautiful and beautifully maintained. The interior spaces are sophisticated yet gracious and welcoming and the garden and outdoor seating areas beautiful and varied. Also, the proximity to the Douglas beach is a big plus. We truly enjoyed ourselves in every way.

Very comfortable, well maintained and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

We were four adults, 2 kids (4 and 7) and an infant. We really enjoyed staying at this house. The beach is a 5 min walk, Oval beach is a 5 to 10 min drive. The house itself is very well maintained and has everything one would need. We cooked many meals in the house (vegetarian options are limited in this area) and everything was available.

The English garden is just beautiful.

Overall, very enjoyable stay.
