Reviewer Comments:

Second Wind is an awesome beach cottage for a getaway to the beach! We loved everything about the house, very spacious, clean & huge back deck with great new gas grill. My only complaint is that the path to the beach from the cottage is very overgrown. The wild grass is covering the path in many areas & it cuts & scratches your legs up. There is also an apparent tick problem to b weary of. To avoid all this, we chose to use the public path which was pretty close by.

Awesome cottage

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed @ this cottage for a Bachelorette weekend. It is very cozy & quaint with three bedrooms & 1 & 1/2 baths. The wrap around deck is amazing & provides PLENTY of seating. There were 9 of us & we had several additional chairs that could have been put out. The house was spotless clean when we arrived! Nice gas grill available. The path to the beach does need maintenance as it is overgrown & the wild grass can be very itchy / cut up your legs. There is also warnings posted about a tick problem in that area, so after one attempt we chose to use the public beach path for the rest of our trips. The public path is very close. Can't emphasize enough how tight the parking is! You are allowed two spots for this unit & it is VERY tight. Overall it was an awesome stay! Would highly recommend this unit for anyone - only suggestion would be to work on the path to the beach... if that were more maintained & weeded back, I would have given 5 stars.

Reviewer Comments:

We didn't have the best experience. We arrived having to take trash to the cans because it was left on front porch by main door. The patio door off bedroom handle was broken. We only got 1 towel per person and 1 toilet paper roll per bathroom, for 8 people..definitely not enough! We had to call the police out bc someone was parked in front of our parking space, needless to say..they were jerks and made us felt like it was our fault bc they said your signs were sufficient enough. Wished the shower had racks to place our hair products/razors..ects. We did love the beach area and community. However we won't be renting this home again. We also did have a great stay except for the the things I mentioned. Thanks!!

Reviewer Comments:

Second Wind is a wonderful cottage just over the dune from Lake Michigan and Sheridan Beach. The cottage was clean, decorated beautifully and has a fully stocked kitchen. We loved using the new gas grill on a couple of occasions also. The sleeping arrangments suited us well and my kiddos loved the bunk bed room. The half bath on the second bedroom was great to have as well! The walk to the beach is a bit more than 100 steps...you have to walk up and over a dune, but it is a great location. We ended up using the public access path off the street rather than the path from the deck b/c it was overgrown and we found some ticks after using it (its a really bad year everywhere for ticks!) The public access path is so easy to get to. We walked to Washington Park to play and see the lighthouse. We also visited the zoo, small but good for our little ones (6, 4, and baby). I highly recommend climbing the observation tower to see the view! We don't usually watch TV on vacation, but we are from Cleveland and the NBA finals were on so we got to watch our Cavs win on the very nice TV and our girls watched a movie on a rainy day as well on Netflix. The one and only negative was that the rental management company did not contact me with the lock code prior to our stay as was stated in the rental agreement. I ended up calling them an hour before we drove up however, they were very helpful with overflow parking, notifying us of a plumber coming to work on the outdoor shower and the binder of information in the house was useful as well. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return again next summer!
