Quiet and peaceful - but be aware of the itch!
Quiet and peaceful - but be aware of the itch!
House is very peaceful, quiet and in a good location for access to Glen Arbor, Leland, etc. the house and everything in it is from the 70's so you feel as if you've stepped back in time. Plenty of room for our large family with a big deck to relax on after a long day at the beach. 4 floating boats enhanced the lake experience for our kids and the shallow water was perfect for young ages. We loved having the lake access just feet away however be aware this lake has swimmer's itch so after discovering that we were unable to go back into the water and had to use Lake MI beaches nearby instead. Preventative measures can be taken to avoid the itch but since we unaware our poor children suffered. Had we not had that issue with the lake I would have given this review a higher rating - not that it is their fault but I wish we would have known in advance.

Owner response: Swimmers itch exists in lakes in the Midwest and runs in cycles. It is reported that 30% of the population is allergic to the schistasone. Our guests and neighbors have reported higher than normal reactions this year. Precautions include using oily lotions before swimming, not lingering in shallow water, and vigorously towel drying after swimming. We appreciate this alert as it is unpredictable from year to year.
