A wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to say how wonderful the week was at the cottage. That porch!! I could have spent the entire week on that porch. There is so much room in the cottage. Only 1 bathroom, but it is a very roomy bathroom and the water pressure was good.

Not great cell service but I had no problem with unplugging for the week. Still got some service, but just not great.

The kitchen is big and very well equipped.

We have already confirmed our dates for next year if that tells you anything!

Huge, vintage place.

  • 3 of 5

Great location near beach. House is huge. Needs proper maintenance and cleaning. Lots of long grass, brush near house. Furniture on porch dirty. Porch is huge and would be great place to sit if cleaned better. Fireplace was wonderful. Had some cooler nights and was great to snuggle in front of the fire.

Cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with our 2 small children and another family. Overall we enjoyed our stay in this cozy cottage. It's an older home with it's quirks but clean, spacious and very close to the beautiful beach. Over time I would hope some money would be invested in this place such as some new beds/mattresses, new carpeting and another bathroom. There is plenty of room and can sleep 10 however only 1 bathroom is not ideal. The cottage is located on a hill and it was difficult to spend time outside with the kids and I was worried they would slip and fall. Not much space as far as a yard however a quick walk down the property and you have a beautiful beach and lake Michigan. No cell service and we couldn't get the TV to work but we brought movies for the kids and that was fine for us. The owner and property manager were responsive and would recommend this place.

Location, location, location

  • 4 of 5

This is an older house but so very charming. It is situated on a bluff surrounded by trees, walking distance to the fantastic Lake Michigan beach. We had several fires on the beach at sunset (wood for fires provided) and watched the shooting stars when it got dark. From the large screened in front porch, you hear the waves at the beach and the wind rushing through the trees. You can even see the water through the trees. It is private and QUIET! There is no wifi and cell phone reception is spotty, but that's not what we were there for. My only suggestion is to place locks on the bathroom doors, and remove the carpet from the downstairs bedroom. Would we go back? ABSOLUTELY!! You can't beat the price for this kind of proximity to the beach.

charming and peaceful cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We happened to pick a weekend when the weather was awful but we still had a wonderful time in this charming cottage with beautiful views of Lake Michigan. A fireplace and endless supply of wood kept us warm along with the furnace while the sun porch was a cool place to hang out and watch the leaves fall with a cup of tea or just to read a book. The price is very reasonable and all the amenities you really need are there to spend quality time with loved ones. We hope to go back soon!
