Both inside and out, this rental was perfect for our family. The owners anticipated our every need and were immediately responsive to our inquiries. The view of the lake from the living room was breathtaking. The private lake access with the sandy beach and shallow approach provided many hours of pure fun for our grandkids. The calm lake found us enjoying paddle boarding, peddle boating and kayaking every day. We could not have been more pleased with our stay.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely home last weekend! It was truly a getaway that we will never forget! We built a fire, we canoed in this beautiful lake setting, and had a very restful nights sleep! Cannot say enough good about this wonderful place! Hoping to go back again... For longer:)

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This home is everything they list and more. We had perfect fall weather and the home was everything we were looking for and more. Plenty of space for 10 adults, very clean and the pool table and outdoor space/activities were a great addition.

The owners are also great to work with and offered lots of help and suggestions for local attractions.

We hope to come back next year as well.

Thanks again for a great weekend get away :)

This is our second time.

If you're using reviews to help determine which house to choose: this is the one. For starters, you have no neighbors. On one side of the house is a wooded multi-cottage parcel and they're completely removed from the lakeshore and on the other is some large club house. You're not in a subdivision; you're the only backyard. The rooms are evening divided (no one's sleeping on kids' bunk beds) and the basement's clean, new and not musty. 4 couples and my wife and I have returned now for a second year in a row to relax outside in front of a fire, tell old stories and cook food in a modern and well appointed kitchen. You've found your house.

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

John and Rob, the owners of the Goshorn Lake House, are great of work with. The house and the grounds are immaculate. We liked that the house was nicely appointed, but didn't have a lot of the knick knacks that some cottages have. We had little kids with us and it was easy to childproof the place.

We didn't have great weather, but this house is plenty big for the whole group of us to stay inside. The lawn is huge and the kids enjoyed playing in the yard.

We explored the lake with the canoe and the paddle boat and caught a few fish. Oval Beach is a short drive away.

Some family members took the dune ride at the end of the street and really enjoyed it. We all liked exploring Saugatuck and watching the boats.

I highly recommend the Goshorn Lake House.

Owner's Response: At Goshorn Lake House, we strive to make our guest's experience one to remember. We set-up the house so that our guests can arrive, bring in their personal items and feel like they are home. While the inside of the house is detailed, we also clean the patio furniture and grill. The peddle boat and canoe are scrubbed and any dirt and debris are removed. The sandy lake bottom of swim area and shoreline are cleaned to remove any sediment. Finally, the beach sand is raked, so that the first footprints in the sand are from our arriving guests. We appreciate our guest's comments and look forward to their next visit at Goshorn Lake House. John and Rob

Our return to the lake house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the house, just like last year, everything was perfect! The house was immaculate and had everything you could want. We had our whole family, 6 adults and 4 grandchildren, ages 3 thru 12. They loved the beach and paddle boat and canoe and the pool table. We only left the house to shop in Saugautak and see the sunset at Oval one of the granddaughters said this is paradise!
