Comfortable, Plenty of space for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

I visited with my two sisters and their families (6 adults and 9 kids, ages 7 through 16) and there was plenty of room for everybody. The house is not what I'd call fancy, but it has everything you need for a relaxing, quiet week away from it all. The property is very large, and the view of Lake Michigan is amazing. We brought bikes, but the grounds are more suited for hiking (and there are so many other things to do, we never missed the bikes). The kids had a great time on the boats and playing in the cove (but bring water shoes because the rocks are hard to walk on in bare feet). We enjoyed volleyball tournaments, euchre games, and bonfires, and had a wonderful time reconnecting with our families. Paul and Kim were very helpful and responsive to any questions, and had great suggestions for area attractions.

What a Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family (including children 2 - 5), parents and grandparents all had a wonderful trip to the Stonington House. It is a beautifully secluded piece of property. The house is well appointed and CLEAN. Having traveling to many different spots up north, this is definitely our favorite so far. We'll be going back again next year, I hope!
