This was not the best house I have rented. When we first arrived the entire house smelled terrible and we realized it was because there was left over meat left in the freezer and the refrigerator was broken and not working so the meat spoiled. I was upset about this and we didn't get a new fridge till the last night of our stay. The website also states that there is a room that has a bathroom attached to it and this is wrong. There are two bathrooms but they are their own rooms so I was not happy about this either. The living room is pretty small as well. Overall if you have a small group then maybe you will like this house but my group wasn't happy with it.
I was pleasantly surprised at this rental during our stay and glad that we choose it for the weekend. The house is small but has just enough space with the rooms to accommodate renters, especially with kids. The bunked bed room worked out well for the kids to have their own space and be far enough away from the other two bedrooms by the kitchen and living room.
The outdoor has ample space in the yard to roam and enjoy the weather. Unfortunate for us, the heavy rains for that weekend presented limited use. A small shed provided a series of toys which the kids enjoyed. The hot tub was a plus with the weather which kept us away from the Beach. The meshed sun room was fantastic for eating outdoors and protected from mosquitoes while having ample seating.
The gas grill worked well but when we arrive, the gas tank was empty. I sent a message to RSVP rentals but had not heard back so we purchased a new one and sent them the receipt. They were very understanding and apologized for not contacting us and later credited our account for the charge.
My only negative with the place is the RSVP rule for washing towels before leaving. In a hotel setting, counting on the laundry service to handle such a hygienic task is preferred. Knowing that another renter was the responsible party for the cleaning of my towels, just simply sits funny with me. Most people do not have a clue on how to operate a washer/dryer, let alone handling the process successfully. I would suggest that the maid service which is paid for in the fees, handle the towel service.
This was a last minute booking but what a nice place to stay - clean, cute, nicely decorated house with bright colors and plenty of room for several adults and kids. House is well equipped with dishes, linens and anything you might need. Everyone enjoyed the outdoor space - sitting by the fire, hottub and a screened in "party" house was a poplular hang-out spot.
The owners were really nice to work with - very flexible and accomodating.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bow Tie Cottage. We had 4 adults and 2 children in tow and the home was perfect. Plenty of outdoor space, hot tub, fire pit, the home was spacious and just the right amount of room for our very active 3 and 4 year old. There is plenty to do near by as well. We will make this our go to next time we are in Michigan. RSVP Rentals was a pleasure to work with. Thank you for everything Audrey!
The cottage was absolutely adorable! The beach is a short walk away...be careful not venture onto private beach property. We appreciated the information on local amenities and thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub! Would definitely visit again! Thanks for your concise instructions and follow-through Audrey!
