Guestbook comments from the owner

We created some unforgettable memories with our children and grandchildren in your beautiful home. The lake is great for swimming, fishing, and the sunsets were gorgeous. It was truly a blessing to stay here! Thank you.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time last week! This home has everything you would ever need. It is clean, luxurious, furnished beautifully, and we couldn't find one thing that we didn't like about it. The lake is great for kids because it is shallow for quite a distance out. The kids loved jumping off of the dock. We enjoyed swimming, kayaking, fishing, and hiking on nearby trails. Every evening we enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the sunset. Greg is a super nice guy and easy to get along with. We can't say enough on how great this place is and how much we enjoyed staying here! We would definitely recommend this to our friends and relatives.

Great Rental

  • 4 of 5

My family, of 14, had a wonderful experience on Lake Margrethe with the beautiful sunsets! The House is well laid out, clean and has a great Balcony & first level deck. We rented a pontoon which is a must on this lake. Boat traffic is low and the trip across the lake to the Sand Hill and beach was fun. The water is shallow and clean for 200 feet out or so which makes it fun for the little guys. The only down side is you can't walk directly into the water, you get into the water from the dock. The Neighbors are nice, considerate and only showed up on the weekend. Fun was had by ALL.

Incredible Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an extraordinary vacation we had. The photos of this listing are spot on with the beauty of the home. This home is situated on the best part of the lake. We had sunsets that lasted for HOURS- be sure to get a picture at sunset on the big patio with silhouettes near the flag. The views were incredible. The house was really clean and well maintained, no complaints there. We loved having the extra "great room" on the 2nd floor, it was perfect for doing puzzles, playing cards and board games. The sleeping arrangements worked perfectly for our group of 12 people, everybody had their own bed and it was so spacious that we never felt cramped. You have to try the bakery behind the Shell Station in Grayling (can't remember the name of it but there is a big sign painted on the brick wall by the gas station). The neighbors said that Whimpy's ice-cream was excellent but we never got around to going there. We spent most of our day time on the lake over at "The Sand Hill". It was an awesome place to let the kids play in the sand as we beached our boat. Nice big sand hill that the kids loved running down straight into the water. The water clarity was unreal. Couldn't get over how clear it was. Friendly people on the lake overall. It was the perfect family experience. The owner was very responsive when we had questions- never had to wait too long. I have already recommended this property to numerous friends. You'll love this place.

Exceptional vacation home! Lake Margrethe is a hidden treasure!

  • 5 of 5

This lakefront property was fantastic! Our hosts were incredibly accommodating, and the home and location were everything we could have wanted. We brought a small sailboat with us and had many, many days of both exciting and easy sailing. Our grandchildren loved swimming and playing in the lake. This was one of the best and most relaxing vacations we have had in years.

Incredible Accomodations! Gorgeous Lake!

  • 5 of 5

This house is UNREAL! It was everything you want in a vacation home. It was clean, organized, spacious and completely stocked with general needs. The sunsets were AMAZING from the dock and the lake is absolutely gorgeous, clean, and clear. The check in and out process was very easy and the owner was very helpful. I can't wait to come back again and share this experience with others! I'm going to propose that we have our next work retreat here. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Great Vacation, Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this home. I say home because it was like staying at a home, not a cottage. Everything is new and nice. The home is completely stocked for all the things you would need for the week. The weather could have been better but a great week was had by all. The rental process was smooth and the owners were great in every way. We would definitely rent again. Thank you!
