Guestbook comments from the manager

William,



I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at your lake house. The boat worked out perfect and there was an ideal number of places to sleep. The house itself was very nice and we worked hard to ensure that it was left in the condition we found it. Thank you again for being so accommodating and for all the help you have given.

Great memories

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean home off the lake. Renting the pontoon boat provided by owner or bringing own boat (or both) is a must! Huge, clean lake. Great time. Owner was pleasant to deal with.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Everything positive said in the previous reviews is absolutely spot-on! We loved everything about our family vacation here: the house and its amenities, the lake, the pontoon, the location. The house is beautiful and equipped with everything you need from the gorgeous, well-appointed kitchen; to the "business center;" to the bedrooms, beds, and bathrooms which lend themselves to every family/group configuration; to the decks, pool table, and ping pong table; to the waterfront plus everything to enjoy it to the maximum.

We loved every minute, found the homeowner very helpful and easy to work with, and can't wait to come back!

Amazing Vacation - Great Rental - Awesome Owner

  • 5 of 5

The previous 5 star reviews are absolutely accurate. It's hard to add more to a review of this property so I'll try to break it down to include items not mentioned.

The Owner: William was great!!! He supplied a ton of information before, during and after the rental. There were no surprises, up-charges or hidden fees. William supplied detailed information on the area, property and Long Lake, both verbally and by email. William responded almost instantly to emails and telephone calls. We ran into one small problem with a misplaced boat anchor and William had it replaced with a brand new one within 16 hours. (Kudos to Hiede, the cleaning lady who bought the anchor - best wishes on your new baby!!!).

The Area: Great Michigan lake town. Delton, MI is a small town with a grocery store, gas station and Grove Street Cafe, an awesome country restaurant. You are close enough to drive to several local breweries, wine tastings, golf courses and even a casino in the Kalamazoo/Gun Lake area.

Long Lake: This is a nice 270 acre all sport lake. There is an access area/boat launch which appears to be open to the public, but we darn near owned the lake during the week. We never had any problems while using the pontoon boat, kayaks, or just lounging near the dock or floating deck. We saw people fishing, swimming, skiing and jet skiing throughout the week, but it was not crowded at any time. If you need to visit a larger lake, Gun Lake, Gull Lake and several other lakes are within a 20-30 minute drive. We truly enjoyed the feel of Long Lake whether we were pontooning or just taking in the sun.

The House: Amazing!!! The previous reviews spell it out. The pictures are great, but they don't give true justice to this residence. The floor plan, facilities, decks and extras are laid out in an open flowing design which made life easy and enjoyable for the week we stayed. The hill is steep and will be a challenge to the elderly or handicapped, but we had a group of 6 in our adult family and we truly appreciated the property. We took advantage of the pontoon rental (local rentals at other lakes were about $1200/week for similar pontoons) and all types of outdoor activities. The house was well stocked with beds, linens, cooking appliances, dishes, washer/dryer and even a Keurig coffee maker.

So... this was our first vacation home rental and it will be tough to beat which means we will be back!!! Thanks Willie for a great family vacation.

Highly recommend this beautiful rental home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at this home in July for vacation. The home is absolutely beautiful and with 3 bedrooms, a loft and several couches and futons, can accommodate a large group of people. At check in, the house was very clean and plenty of towels, blankets, sheets, etc. were available. It is also a new home with new and working appliances, including a washer and dryer. There have obviously been some changes/improvements since the pictures (on this website) were taken. The lower level has a pool table. The Ping-Pong table is now on the downstairs deck. There are nearby trails for those who like to bring their 4-wheelers / recreation vehicles. The lake is clean, much quieter than most lakes and is much larger than it appears in the pictures. It was a hot week when we were here, but it never got too hot on the decks because there are several large trees that provide shade. The lake water was a comfortable swimming temperature. The yard from the house to the lake is very large. The house sits up on a hill, which offers a beautiful view of the lake. An older review mentioned that the dock is in disrepair. This has been corrected; there is a new boat dock. We rented the pontoon boat and it was more than worth the price. It came equipped with a large tube for tubing, which was an added bonus for the kids. The beach is small and a bit mucky a few feet out, but the diving platform just a ways out was enjoyable to swim off of. The upstairs deck (same level as the kitchen) has a gas grill; you don’t have to worry about propane. The fire pit, down by the water was used frequently and there is a large picnic table close by. We highly recommend this rental.

Perfect home for our family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We have searched and stayed at rental properties over the last 6 years with our large party of 2o. This house has finally checked the boxes on all of our needs and we were so impressed with the space and ammenities of this rental home. Fishing was good and kids loved swimming off of the raft and using the kayak and paddle boat.We are definatley looking forward to coming back again next year.

Thanks William

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely house. Very well stocked and clean. We enjoyed the beautiful lake and extraordinary views from the deck. The pontoon boat was lots of fun for the kids and adults. Only issue we had was that the beach was very muddy and full of water lilys. Made it impossible to swim from beach. Good news is there is a private campground a few miles away with a wonderful beach that can be used for the day at a cost of $5 per car. It is a steep incline from the house to the beach. Not for the elderly or anyone with mobility issues.
