Not only is the cabin perfect, but the location as well. The cottage was very well kept and very comfortable. We had the most relaxing time, whether we just hung out at the cottage or stopped at the beautiful small towns along the Lake Michigan shoreline. And if you haven't seen it yet, the Sleeping Bear Dunes are not to be missed!

Great House, Great Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house was excellent. Everything was exactly as described and I would say that overall the house was better than expected. This is the 4th property in Northern Michigan that I have rented over the past 6 years and it was by far the cleanest. We had 4 adults and one teenager and the house was the perfect size. The beach was great. The sand was very clean and did not have any rocks. There were only 10 - 12 steps to get over the dune, then a short sandy path to get to the beach. It is a great house for those wanting to get away from it all. There are a few restaurants within 15 minutes or so, but that is about it. About 30 minutes to a real grocery store, but general store nearest town has the basics. We sat out at the beach or on the back deck every night to watch the sunsets. Heidi the property manager was great to work with and responded quickly to any questions. I would highly recommend this house. I would definitely come back.

Great location on Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

We always look at the pictures very carefully before renting a house, and they don't do the property justice. Both the interior and exterior of the home were better than we expected upon arrival. The home is very well-maintained and you can tell that the owners of taking extra care to provide you with little extras that improve the experience. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the sandy beach Lakeside watching our kids swim, and enjoying the kayaks made available by the owners. The sunsets over Sturgeon Bay are magnificent. In and around the area we enjoyed a meal at legs then, driving the tunnel of trees, and visiting Pond Hill Farms. We did an extensive amount of research before renting this home and it's amazing spot at a great price.

A much needed relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was excellent, the lake is beautiful, the nature is only steps away. We had a fantastic trip. Best to plan well though as we were somewhat swarmed by small flies called midges. Manageable, but certainly annoying. This is a great place to stay in the area, but plan your stay around midge and fish flies, which each last a week or two.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind and accurate review! Midge season is a challenge! We hope you get an opportunity to visit the cottage again, perhaps mid Summer or early Fall.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect getaway retreat! Cozy and yet roomy. Well maintained - no detail skipped. Great views/sounds of Lake Michigan. My favorite like about this place (among the many) was that it was so down-right peaceful!

Two couples who are long-time friends rented this cottage for a multi-day reunion. Everything was as described in the ad, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well-equipped and the views of Lake Michigan and the sunsets were spectacular.
