We had a fantastic stay at this beautiful beach home. We LOVE Empire and we LOVE this home. It accommodates our family perfectly. The home was clean and had everything we needed. The location is perfect distance to the beach. I personally enjoyed the swing on the front porch to sit and read and enjoy the nice summer evenings. This is our second summer renting this home and we plan to rent it again if available. Great owners!
Our family of 8 stayed here in June of 2011 and found the accommodations perfect for our family. Very comfy furnished, family friendly and didn't have to worry if our kids would accidentally break anything. Perfect location, just a 5 minute walk to the beach, or a 3 minute walk to the library and to get an ice cream cone! Kitchen had everything we needed, house was clean on arrival, and we will definitely try to rent it again next time we are in Empire.
This is a lovely home for a vacation. Our family has spent a week each summer here for the last 4 years and we already have arrangements for this summer as well. It is located in Empire and within walking distance to Lake Michigan as well as shopping and restaurants. It is also only a very short distance from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. The house is very spacious and accommodates a large family well. There is plenty of room for everyone to spread out. We particularly enjoy sitting on the front porch swing in the evening after a full day at the beach. The home is always very clean and nicely decorated. We look forward each year to a great stay at this really wonderful vacation spot.
I have visited beautiful Empire for the past five years and have stayed at this cottage for the past three years. It is spotless, beautiful, open, airy and so close to the gorgeous Empire beach. The owner is very flexible and easy to deal with, there is plenty of space for my family to spread out and the yard is a really good size. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation in a quaint town.
