Lovely home with a fabulous view

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed both the location and the living space! This is a very well-cared for home with plenty of room. Our family of 6 stayed for a week very comfortably! We saw eagles flying overhead and loved the sound of Lake Michigan waves. Would highly recommend this rental!

incredible lake house!

  • 5 of 5

The views through the floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room are gorgeous onto Lake Michigan. The house is situated on a nice sandy beach, great for sun bathing and swimming. Everything that we needed was there, and we were very comfortable. We loved it!

Beautiful Setting!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here in the UP! The deck and the view of the water from the house is amazing! It was so nice to wake up to the view of the lake every morning while sipping on coffee. The beach and lake was great, and our family spend the entire week enjoying the beauty of the UP. The house was exactly as expected and had many amenities, a good home away from home!

what a beautiful place to spend some time.

  • 5 of 5

I and my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely beach house. The home was spacious and we cannot say enough about the wonderful beach. Great swimming and just strolling the sand. When the lake changed moods the thunder of the waves was awesome.

We voted to go back again sometime.

Perfect location for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for our family to spend a week together! The kids loved playing in the water of Lake Michigan (even if it was a little cold for the adults). This is a nice stretch of beach that we had to ourselves. It was also close enough for day trips to the Pictured Rocks and Mackinac Island. The house was very comfortable and relaxing. Our family had a great week and would highly recommend this rental!
