Perfect for what we came for!

  • 4 of 5

This home was spacious and comfortable! We were with our niece and 4 grandchildren, so the space was great. One of the best equipped kitchens we've ever had, and we're foodies who cook a lot on vacation, especially with 7 of us. It was easy to get to and from the beach, which the boys dubbed the "backyard beach" 😄

Our only challenge was the 10:00 check out. It was hard to get everyone fed, everything cleaned up, beds stripped, all of the laundry couldn't fit in the washer at once. We pulled out at 10:55, with the housekeeper glaring at us and marginally threatening. Really, we left the place in pretty good shape!

This was perfect otherwise for our purposes!

Perfect house for our family!

  • 5 of 5

The house is even more bright and open than the pictures make it seem. Our group had more than enough room to spread out and get comfy. The kids loved watching movies in their own living room downstairs. The house had everything we needed for a great stay. The owner was very pleasant and helpful in the booking process. The beach was rocky but our kids loved looking for interesting stones. Apparently this year the water level is higher than normal also so it made the beach abbot smaller than usual but we loved having our own private space. The walk to the beach was very quick and so convenient. We really hope to return again.

What a lovely, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, comfortable home. It was perfect for our three generation vacation. The grandchildren had a wonderful time on the beach. The beach and lake were beautiful with amazing sunsets every evening. The home is well stocked with linens and kitchen items. I would definitely recommend this vacation home to anyone. We would love to return again!

Wonderful Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful, clean, cottage on Lake Michigan. It had enough room for our family of 9 while still feeling cozy. The beds were comfortable and the house was well stocked with dishes, linens, and beach equipment. The weather was a bit cool while we were there, but we were pleased with the collection of movies and board games to occupy our time. The walk to the beach is relatively short, but might be a challenge for someone elderly or disabled. Having a completely private area on the beach was very nice. The beach is a bit rocky so I would recommend beach shoes for little feet. The boys enjoyed having a rock skipping contest and my mom was excited to find a petoskey stone. The owners were easy to reach both before and during our stay and answered any questions we had.

Great Lake Michigan Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several cottage and this was one of the very nicest cottages that we have stayed at. The photos were very nice, but the house was even more impressive and spacious than the photos showed.

The listing was accurate regarding the location, layout and amenities and the house was immaculate and well maintained and very nicely furnished.

Every thing we needed was provided and in perfect condition.

The owner was very pleasant and helpful. All of our questions were answered quickly and completely. Although, we didn't need to contact them during our stay I have no doubt that they would have been very timely with their assistance.

The beach and the lake were fantastic. We had three generations staying at the house and all had a great time.

I would not hesitate to recommend this property and we will be returning to vacation there, again.
