We loved our stay at this property. The location is great for enjoying everything that Sleeping Bear Dunes has to offer. It was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The kitchen was very well appointed. We will definitely stay here again.
We had a wonderful time! The cottage was clean, had everything we could every want, beds were comfortable, atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. We had a great time watching the wildlife (saw many deer and one grey fox who came right up to the porch) star gazing and even saw a small bit of the Northern Lights. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful place with us!
This property is a real gem! This is our second stay and it was fantastic. The location is a great place to unwind and only minutes from the beach and other activities. The amenities are nice (washer, dryer, wi-fi, sat TV, etc) and it's spotlessly clean. We saw deer everyday and heard the coyotes just about every night. It's also great for stargazing . We are looking forward to our next stay.
If you are looking for a clean and comfortable house in a perfect location - look no further. We love this place and have stayed twice. Both times the charming home with beautiful views of a prairie field left us longing to return.
This is our third year coming to this house. We love it and wouldn't stay anywhere else. It is clean, comfy, peaceful, and is perfectly located.
Our first thoughts upon arriving at this property were about the relaxing setting. Then upon entering the house we were very pleased with the cleanliness of this property! It was such a pleasing, comfortable place to come back to each day of our stay after hiking, swimming, dune climbing, wine tasting, and shopping. Another major plus was that we were able to enjoy all the above activities without spending a lot of time driving. The location of this property worked out so well for my husband and I that we will certainly want to return here for another round. We would like to bring our grandkids to the dunes in the not too distant future as they are 8 and 5 now and love the outdoors. Highly recommend this place!
