About Kurt and Sharon Hadaway

We have been marred 16 years and feel very lucky to be living in Frankenmuth. My husband is a supervisor for Delta Air Lines and I have been involved in property management, with family partners, for 20 years. This is our first vacation rental and happy to say, we are the sole owners. I’ve never enjoyed managing a property as much as this home, we take great pride in getting the house ready for our guests and hoping to exceed their expectations. Living locally makes it easy to confirm everything is perfect before guests check in.

Kurt and Sharon Hadaway purchased this house in 2015

Why Kurt and Sharon Hadaway chose Frankenmuth

We chose this area because Frankenmuth is one of Michigan’s premiere vacation destinations. Known as “Michigan’s Little Bavaria,” due to its German heritage. It’s a place of horse drawn carriages, covered bridges, river boat cruises, world-famous chicken dinners, big water parks, and small-town strolls. Beautiful floral landscape throughout downtown, unique shops, restaurants, and beer gardens. All makes this a great place to getaway to during every season.

What makes this house unique

We immediately feel in love with this property from the moment we looked at it. The location is perfect! Great neighborhood, short walk to downtown, and across the street from the golf course. The grounds are beautiful. It has a large back yard with patio for BBQ’s and entertaining. The driveway is long and will accommodate 5 cars. It also has a large front porch for relaxing. I knew this was going to be the perfect vacation home as soon as I walked in the door. The beautiful historic charm with the original woodwork throughout. It has a large kitchen and large dining room farm table. This home is large and spacious yet cozy and comfortable. perfect place for making memories with your friends and family.

What a treasure!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this beautiful house for a week's stay with my husband, daughter and parents as an alternative to staying with relatives. We had a wonderful time and I highly recommend the place to others.

Sharon was very friendly and easy to communicate with, and check-in was simple. The house was spacious, clean and comfortable. The ground-floor bedroom was ideal for my parents and the upstairs had space and privacy, including its own sitting area and tv. We never made time to use the ping pong table in the basement but we did enjoy the beanbag toss. :) There is also plenty of outdoor space, including a front porch with comfy furniture, a side porch and an enclosed back yard.

The location is perfect. We were able to walk to everything on Main St yet the house is on a quiet block and was very peaceful. We all felt at home and very relaxed, as though we were staying with friends. As an aside, we appreciated the travel crib and booster seat for our toddler.

I'm thankful to our hosts and hope to stay here again.

Very impressed how nice and clean and well kept the house is. The weather didn’t cooperate with our stay however TV is modern Smart TV so was easily able to log into Netflix, put on our jammies and get some very much needed R&R!!

Beautiful home walking distance to most attractions

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our Easter away from home. Anything you could need was provided from a well-stocked kitchen to bandaids and aspirin. We've used this website for vacation homes before and have always been pleased, but this house goes a step further with quality bath towels (and plenty of them), nice linens (included), extra blankets, pillows and welcome baskets in each bedroom. If you don't know what to do while staying here, they've put together a nicely organized binder to help you and were a simple call away if needed. The location is fantastic as we were able to walk to nearly everything (River Place Shops, Zehnders, Bavarian Inn, Welcome Center, Frankenmuth Museum and so many others) without being on a busy street. We only drove to Bronner's. Due to the weather we didn't use the outdoor spaces but would've enjoyed them if Mother Nature cooperated. The kids enjoyed the ping pong table as well. Sharon was very easy to communicate with and had very quick response time to any questions. An extra special thank-you to her for allowing us to change our plans and come a day later due to an ill child (thank goodness for us also no one was booked the day after us). That flexibility allowed us to enjoy our time so much more. There truly is not one negative thing about this home or those that manage it. Rent this home if coming to Frankenmuth!! You will not regret it.
