Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time here! The cottage truly felt like a home away from home! We were able to enjoy the wonderful fire pit and lake a little on our trip, but being spring in Michigan we had some cold and rainy weather too. The accommodations are comfortable and everything is well stocked. Preparing meals was a breeze in the beautiful kitchen, and there was plenty of space for playing games and hanging out when the weather didn't cooperate. We certainly hope to return!

Amazing view, cozy cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful place, too bad it was still too cold to get into the water, i can imaging how

wonderful this place will be for the whole family during warm weather days!

I wish there was some basic cleaning solutions available, eg.g shampoo, conditioner and bath

soap! It seems to be VRBO's culture not to stock any!

Sleepy Hollow- Beautiful House, Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a long stay at this lovely house and enjoyed every minute. Diana was extremely helpful and accommodating. We loved the lake and the windows! The master bedroom is a delight with huge windows that overlook the lake. We built a fire outside and it was serene. The drive path to the house is a little bit narrow, but it did not bother my driving husband who worries not about such things. That's probably my only complaint. We appreciated being able to bring our dog. Also, just a fun fact- because of a tremendous wind storm pretty much all of Howell was without power for two days. Sleepy Hollow kept it's power- thankfully. Such Luck!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We were meeting our son and his family for a quick visit with his son/our grandson and this lakehouse turned out perfect for us! The kitchen was large and fully-equipped; although we did not cook a lot (breakfasts and one dinner), it would be ideal in the summer for a week's stay in the lake. The living room with its fireplace was very cozy and since Michigan's first snow storm of the season hit the weekend we were there, that fireplace was everyone's preferred spot. The owner is very communicative, very thoughtful and left us confident if we needed anything, she would assist us. The morning we were to leave, someone even shoveled the driveway for us! Now that's incredible! Everyone said we should keep this location in our list of favorites as we fully intend to return (maybe in the summer when we can enjoy the lake!). Thank you Diana for an enjoyable and memorable weekend!

Thanksgiving at Lake Chemung!

  • 5 of 5

Our Thanksgiving at Lake Chemung was so very nice. We greatly enjoyed the cabin, and found everything we needed to be luxuriously comfortable. We had a very nice feast, and a memorable reunion with our family. I could tell that the cabin had hosted decades of joyful family events, and that warmth surrounded us during our stay.

Thank you for sharing your cabin. Have a Very Merry Christmas.

Great fishing, lovely house, beautiful big yard!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time here! Lake Chemung has some awesome fishing. The yard is beautiful complete with a fire pit and several chairs. The master bedroom has a great view of the lake from its floor to ceiling wall to wall Windows. The only thing we noticed that was a slight disappointment was the traffic noise from nearby highways. Certainly not the owners fault, but something to be aware of if you are wanting to only hear the sounds of nature. However, having the property so close to "civilization" has its perks too! Howell is fun to peruse the shops and Brighton has one of the best Italian restaurants that we've ever dined: Chao Amici.
