Had a GREAT time!
Had a GREAT time!
Wow, we really enjoyed ourselves. Owners were very accommodating, responded quickly, and worked closely with us. House is a very charming cottage just a couple blocks from a quiet private beach. Had everything we and our 5 kids needed for our stay in the St Joseph area and fit right into our budget. Nice restaurants close by... Grand Mere Inn and Tosi's to name a few. St Joseph is a very short drive for more action. It won't be the most elegant place you'll ever stay, but it's clean, well-located, and has everything you'd want for a great vacation! Thank you - our family loved it!!!

Owner response: We love it when our guests let us know how much they enjoyed their stay. We tell people our simple cottage is like Grandma's house with heavy electronics and modern conveniences. We've kept the original hardwood floors from early 1920's and polished them. We've added super quiet dishwasher, and new kitchen sinks and counter tops. We've also renovated bathrooms so tubs are spotless and grout super clean and periodically replace linens and towels so they are always fresh and in great condition. People tell us they love that it's an older house with charm, but very clean, well maintained and furnished with good quality mattresses, furniture and lots of extras (yard games, wi-fi, cable TVs, DVDs, movie and CD library, lots of outdoor furniture, older bikes to putz around neighborhood, beach gear to borrow, beach towels, first morning coffee and creamers, 3 grills--smoker, gas and Weber, high chair, baby gates for steep stairs, extra linen, etc. It's a "cottage" because of all the uniqueness of it and its simplicity & great circulation that allows kids to be kids, put their feet up and run around and enjoy the home and its relative roominess. The newly renovated playhouse has been a big "hit" with the under 10 crowd. We appreciate all the referrals. Edwina and Dave

"We had a delightful time at your cottage!"
(Verbatim guest thank you letter written 2 days after stay) Frank and I had a delightful time at your cottage. It was clean and well supplied. It was the perfect size for the two of us! I hope Wanda found it easy to clean after we left....Having chairs and umbrellas for the beach was greatly appreciated. Thank you for supplying them. We cam home tanned and relaxed. That was our goal. We enjoyed the beaches, several good restaurants and several local communities. We took a sailing charter one afternoon. Thank you again for everything. Carolyn (OH)

LOVED our MI cottage!!
I wanted to write and tell you how wonderful our trip was! And we really appreciate how helpful you were! You really thought of everything, from the coffee for our first morning to all the information on places to go in the area. And the kids loved the play house and swing set! Hopefully we will be back again soon!!

Owner response: We are so pleased that you and the rest of this summer's guests have enjoyed this one of our cottages near Lake Michigan in Stevensville. Toddlers and elementary age kids really had a great time in big back yard, so I'm so glad we had our carpenter fix up the play house. We appreciate knowing that our guests recognize the time and attention and care we put into making our home as comfortable for you as we'd like it to be for ourselves. We're looking forward to your return visit. Thanks for the compliments. Edwina and Dave
Great place on a peaceful, quiet street in the neighborhood. Close to everything. Nice backyard patio with ample space for kids to play and adults to enjoy a nice summer BBQ! Had fun. Would rent again.

WE TOTALLY ENJOYED OUR STAY AT THE COTTAGE. WE WERE WORKING 7 DAYS A WEEK 12 HOURS A DAY AND A NICE QUIET BED WAS VERY INVITING. THE EXTRA TIME WE DID HAVE WAS SPENT AT THE PRIVATE BEACH WHICH WAS ONLY 2 BLOCKS AWAY. THE NEIGHBORS WERE VERY FRIENDLY AND WE QUICKLY MADE SOME NEW FRIENDS BY THE END OF OUR MONTH. THANKS AGAIN FOR SUCH A GREAT PLACE TO STAY. PAUL PITCHER

We would highly recommend the cottage. It was exceptionally clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed for a week's vacation at the beach for the 6 of us. With four kids, we had plenty of room and were able to play outside worry-free (very little traffic). The beach was beautiful. Even the neighbors were welcoming.
