Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 and another family of 3 stayed at the house and we had plenty of room. The house was clean and had a great view of the lake. There was nice sand and the kids were able to catch some small fish with bread just for fun. The kayaks also were fun to take around the lake in the morning. This looks like one of the nicest homes on the lake. We had to go around the corner to swim as the water was murky beyond a few feet in the sand. Some have gone swimming off the dock. Others mentioned a canoe but we didn't have one to use. Everything was there for a nice and relaxing trip - we enjoyed it much. We cleaned up well and received full reimbursement after a few weeks. The sun sets over the lake in the evening so that was a nice and relaxing view as well. The neighbor lady was informative and gave us some info on local things to do as well.

Beautiful vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was more spacious than it look in the pictures. The only drawback was that there was no swimming in front of cottage but owner is working on this and the association beach was wonderful for the kids! Not too far for day trips to Ludington State Park or House of Flavors! The only problem is that the week just flew by!!!

Owner's Response: Thank You Marlene! Yes we made a huge improvement to the beach at the end of July adding three loads (30 yards) more of beach sand.. Still an on-going process but a huge step forward! Glad you enjoyed your time! Take care!

Dream House

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at this house so much that I am having dreams I'm still vacationing there! Being at this house was an absolute escape from reality all while still having access to the outside world. My two boys (ages 7 and 9), my husband and myself all loved sharing this home with our extended family and would jump at the chance to go back again and again!! Thank you for sharing your home with all of us. It was an absolute dream vacation!

Owner's Response: These reviews make my day! We added a truckload of new sand to the beach and continue to learn where to make improvements for our guests. Very happy to see your family enjoyed their stay at the lake!

We were totally thrilled with our time in this home. Lots of room made it very comfortable for everyone (6 adults and 5 children - aged 7 to 17). From the kayaks to swimming off the dock NONE of them missed the amusement parks or tourist trips we normally take. The kids fished every day, multiple times a day and caught some trout and sun fish. One day we rented a pontoon boat from a neighboring site for only $100 for the entire day, that was great. From the s'mores at night on the beach or just sitting or swimming off the dock everything was relaxing and we had the best time; which we all needed away from our normal non-stop lifestyle. The kitchen and dining room were more than sufficient to make meals for our large group. One of the best perks at this home was the outdoor shower with hot water. This made it so easy to hose down the kids without dragging all the wetness and dirt into the home. The only thing I would change is the cleaning service only left 4 towels in the home upon our arrival; but we had brought swim towels and with the handy washer and dryer on site it became a non-issue. On Friday night we had a family charades night with all the kids and it was so fun we laughed for hours. It must have been a good trip because the neighbor did not like the noise as we had all the sliding doors open and our laughter carried outside. It was hot but I understand how noise carries outside and on a lake so we cut things off at 1030 pm and the kids all retired up to the loft for a late night movie "Sandlot". We would love to visit here again and stay longer, maybe exploring the neighboring towns a bit but all in all we were very pleased with this home and our trip. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: Jeannie, do you remember who rented you the pontoon? We get inquiries often to do this and am trying to find available options for guests

Family getaway

  • 4 of 5

Great getaway property on a very nice lake. Accommodations met our expectations, lots of space for our family to spread out, and absolutely beautiful view of Long Lake. While the beach in front of the house is muddy, right around the corner is the association beach, which is very close and very nice. We would definitely consider staying here again!
