We enjoyed our time at the cottage! The bathrooms we a little old and it's been a while since I've been around the smell of well water (smelled like eggs😷). Aside from those 2 items we really enjoyed our time and in Michigan the view was just outstanding and Izzie the dog was very friendly she greeted us each day!! Thanks for letting us rent your cottage!!!
My family of 3 stayed July 20th-24th, 2016. The home provides all you need...just take your own food and towels. The walk to the beach is down a trail that takes about 2 minutes. Once you are on the beach the privacy is outstanding. You can walk as far as you can see and may only see a few (or no) people. The owner was very nice and available in case we needed anything. We really enjoyed our stay!
My husband, me and our girls, 2 furry and 2 two legged :) all had a wonderful time! Cottage was clean and centrally located to beaches, and equal distance to Benton Harbor and a South Haven. Can't wait to go back. Owners were very attentive to our needs and questions.
Upon arriving, we found the rental to be covered in grime and dust. After investigating the rental and what we were facing, we drove several miles to a store to purchase cleaning supplies, bath towels, sheets/pillow cases, blankets, plastic silverware, plastic cups, toilet paper, paper towels, and beach chairs. We did not expect the need to budget for any of this kind of spending. We came back to the rental and began cleaning. The bathroom was the most disgusting. The toilet leaked so badly the back wall was covered in mold and the wall was rotting. We had to leave paper towels on the floor to keep soaking it up for safety reasons. We had to scrub the filthy toilet, shower, and dishes in the kitchen before use. In addition, it had a window curtain that was thin and it left the nighttime users in complete view of anyone outside. We had to cover it with a beach towel. The living area was just as gross. It had grime and dust covering the kitchen table, chairs, end tables, hearth, and living room seating. I put sheets over the sofa and love seat because we wouldn't sit on the grime. The kitchen chairs were carved into, even showing foul language. So inappropriate. The air filter vent for the unit was covered in a layer of dust/dirt. We began cleaning it and found the air filter underneath contained even more dirt. We took off the cover and found a thick layer of dirt covering the air filter. It spewed dust/dirt. I finished cleaning the air filter cover and then placed the filthy air filter by the back door for the owner to notice. While we were there the door handle fell off the bedroom door. There was not even a bed frame for the bed. When I'm charged a cleaning fee with my initial contract, I expect the rental to be clean upon my arrival. I've been camping, I love the outdoor life, and I've rented many cabins, but never have I encountered one that was so poorly kept up .
But that's about it!
This place is kinda of a dump, needs deep cleaning and major repairs.
The cabinets are all sticky, fowl and I mean fowl sewer smell coming from under the kitchen sink, in fact they placed a drip bucket that was half full with black stinky water.
The bathroom floor is always wet due to a toilet leak.
Also, there's junk all over the property.
After I unpacked my car, I picked up 5 piles of dog poop! Which brings my next complaint, the owners that live in the property, fail to mention in the "amenities" that their 2 dogs and 2 kids (all cute) will be literally in your face all the time. In fact we had to ask the kids to go home so we could have dinner and relax.
There's no beach chairs, towels or even garbage bags. I had to make a run to Meijer to drop over $120 in cleaning supplies and such.
Be aware that you will share the yellow grass area with 2 other rentals.
Overall we were very disappointed with our experience, to the point that we left a day earlier than we paid for.
Definitely not going back there. Even though the beach and sunset are breathtaking!
It's a shame becuse it has so much potential.
Had a really nice time, very peaceful. My dogs loved the beach - as did my husband and I.
Owners are wonderful! Really helped us out when we had a medical emergency, even walked our dogs while we were at the hospital, ( Lakeview regional hospital is excellent). Felt like good friends in a short time.
Beds are comfy. Linens very nice, nice setup for the dining room..
Could use a new microwave, wish there was a dishwasher, and a phone somewhere beside the living room. But no big deal.
Hammock looking over the lake was great. Hope to go back again!
Stairs to the beach require agility, and being in pretty good shape, you are going down a sand dune after all
