About Gary Or Monica Gremel

We are starting a new venture with our Lake Cottage. Homeaway is new to us and this rental is new to us as of last year. We have owned vacation rentals since 1991 and have had some of the same visitors since day one. That is because of the cleanliness and attention to detail we have. Come see for yourself!

Gary Or Monica Gremel purchased this cottage in 2008

What makes this cottage unique

Perfection is the only word to describe this rental. Our family has vacationed in Lake City for decades, and have stayed at many places. This cottage has everything. Beautifully decorated and clean interior, all amenities that you need. It was great being able to use the included washer and dryer and not have to go to the laundromat. Drinking coffee on the balcony in the mornings while the sun is coming up was a bonus! This well designed upper apartment/cottage fit our needs perfectly. The boardwalk to Lake Missaukee is directly across the street and the beach is sandy, water is clear. Perfect for all ages. Our hosts, Gary and Monica, welcomed us with open arms and treated us like family. We enjoyed spending time with them and look forward to coming back next summer.

Girls Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

have rented from the Gremels before and this new hidden gem was fantastic. 6 adults might be a little tight, a family would enjoy the cabin and the lake. downtown is quaint and there are restaurants available within driving distance. we do a girls get together twice a year, and are very comfortable (just like home atmosphere). Very clean and updated. thanks Gary and Monnie for allowing us to enjoy your home away from home - Deby and JCP girls

A little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I would like to say, with minimal reviews, I was hesitant. But after seeing the rental and the surrounding area my apprehension faded like my time off until I returned to my 9-5. The rental was all that my family envisioned--comfortable, clean, cozy and best of all relaxing. I enjoyed quick access to the lake for fishing, swimming and building sandcastles. My wife loved to relax and read her book on the upper balcony while the kids rode their bikes on the paved drive below. We spent most of our nights watching beautiful sunsets and sitting around the campfire staring at the stars(you don't get many chances doing this in the city). I can't wait to reserve my spot for next year. I will be checking into the request of the entire complex so my extended family can all experience what a trouble free vacation feels like!

awesome beach!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay! Great back yard for the kids to play! Awesome beach to spend the whole day on! The accommodations are perfect for a family with children or just adults. The owners are so kind and fun! Close to town to run and grab dinner or go to a great ice cream place! There is also a grocery store just minutes away. Perfect area to walk or go for a run too. Kids can also ride their bikes or scooters on the paved driveway or down the road. The place all around was extremely clean as well.
