Fun for a Big Family
Fun for a Big Family
We are a family with 2 parents and 6 kids, ages 15, 13, 10, 7, 5, and 3. We spent four nights at this lovely home. There was plenty of room for everyone. The house was clean, well-kept, and just as described. The owners were friendly and helpful with any and all questions that we had. The kitchen was well stocked with the appropriate pots and pans. The big kids took over the basement rooms and the little kids and parents stayed on the main floor. The kids enjoyed playing the variety of board games, especially Pictionary and Checkers. They played at the tennis courts a few times. The kids were on the dock and in the canoe for hours and were able to catch a few fish. We enjoyed eating our meals in the enclosed porch. The firepit was perfect for enjoying bedtime s'mores. We saw deer on the property every single day. We took a day trip to Manistee, played at the beach, walked the river walk, and had ice cream at House of Flavors. We visited Tippy Dam and the Dublin General Store and tried different flavors of jerky.

We enjoyed a wonderful fall weekend at this property. We loved paddling around the lake in the provided canoe. The woodburning stove was a cozy treat after a cool afternoon hike. The house itself was spacious and very well-equipped. We would recommend this house to others.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful "home" on Big Bass Lake. We just returned from a wonderful weekend and the cottage is a truly gorgeous retreat in the woods. A friend from neighboring Loon Lake put his pontoon boat in at the boat launch for us to use and our son brought his boat and the dock held fast. And although the fish were on the small side we caught several. We especially enjoyed the screened porch and all the privacy. A beautiful place!! Thanks again and hopefully you'll allow us to come again next year.

We had a wonderful time! The house was nice and clean, with enough room for our family. We loved the screened in porch and the nightly campfires. The lake was a lot of fun for our boating, also. Thanks for a wonderful weekend!

The house was wondeful.... I really enjoyed the stay very cozy and very clean. I plan on coming again next year. Hopefully the dock will be better. But lovely over all :-) Thank you

Owner response: we are building a new dock. jeff
This was the perfect house for our family vacation! It was spacious, clean and private. We enjoyed fishing, canoeing and a nightly campfire. We took day trips to Ludington, Sand Lake, and the Little Manistee. Thanks for a great week!

This cottage had everything anyone need except your own personal things. The lake in front needs to have the weeds taken care & a new dock but otherwise it was a very nice vacation.

We had a great week! The cabin was perfect for our family with plenty of bedrooms, a nice layout and access to the lake. It was clean and well furnished, we would definately stay again!

My girlfiends and I take a yearly trip to a lake. This was a great house and we loved the lake, but the dock was kind of scary. It is need of repair. Other then that it was a wonderful place to rent

Owner response: Ladies, we have repaired the scary dock and hope to have a NEW one next season!!
We loved this house on Big Bass Lake. Everything was clean and tidy when we arrived, and had all the amenities of home. We loved sitting on the screen porch and enjoying the outdoors with no bugs. It was nice that the house is surrounded by so many trees, and while the house is on the lake, it's not visible from the lake (i.e., lots of privacy). We went fishing and used the canoe a LOT. The lake was really warm, especially for June. In general, the house was amazing, and we're planning on going again next year!

Great home away from home, on a serene lake. We were a party of 7 and we had a great time fishing, kayaking (few miles away at Enchanted Acres) and riding 4 Wheelers at the Dunes (45 minutes away). Reasonable pricing and a quick return of the deposit, Jeff & Judi make it easy to rent their wonderful home. Thanks.

Our extended family stayed here over Thanksgiving and it was perfect. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to make the big meal. The house was large enough to give us personal space yet "cozy" enough to make us feel at home. Staying here was a great experience.
