This is a nice, cozy cottage for a week at Lake Michigan. Beach access is easy - just down the road. Millicent is a good communicator and making arrangements was easy. We had a great time relaxing and visiting with friends.
We stayed at the Griffin Manor from July 9-12, 2016. I booked the property just 2 weeks before. There were very few other places that weren't booked already so I was glad to find this one online. We typically stay in rental homes in the Michigan City area and have done so 12 years in a row. This is the first time I have waited so long to book a rental home.
The listing indicated that the home had been newly renovated. We found that while some things were new like the side door, light fixtures, some appliances, some furniture and the bathroom, the majority of the home still needs renovating. The flooring is original and is in very bad shape with exception to the bathroom. Several cracks in the linoleum and lifting in many places. There was also a large crack in the kitchen counter. The wall paper was old and looked dirty. There was an odor to the home upon entering, wasn't sure if it was musty or a pet odor. The amenties listed that the property had air conditioning. While this is true, there is just 1 window unit that is supposed to cool the entire place with the help of the ceiling fans. The day and night were pleasant in the home as the outside temperature was only 78 degrees but the 2nd and 3rd night were quite miserable, it never got cooler than 83 degrees inside. The kitchen was fully stocked as listed and all appliances worked well. There was hot water for showers and a nice hose outside for rinsing off.
I received a welcome email with the wifi password. This password did not work. I called the owner the next morning and she texted me a new one that did work. The welcome email also stated that there was a pass to Cherry Beach in the drawer of the home. We found the pass but it was expired. I told the owner and she said that the previous guests must have lost the unexpired pass and that the pass is only good on the weekends. We chose to just walk to the local beach. It is a very small area of shore, only 101 feet as private beaches border close by. The beach was EXTREMELY crowded Saturday and Sunday.
Unfortunately for the price per night of this home and it's current condition, I would not recommend this rental to family or friends.
