Recent East Central reviews

  • The best vacation we ever had.

    "We had a wonderful time here. Lori and Michael are awesome people and great hosts. The house was very well stocked with everything we needed. My Grandson caught his first fish right off the dock. The neighbors were great too, so friendly. We are planning a return trip next year. We very highly recommend this as a vacation spot for families."

  • Love this place

    "The last review here was a negative one, do not let that be your decision maker. My family had a wonderful week here. Josh was very accommodating to us. The beach is clean and sandy. The master bedroom is on the lakeside. While laying in the most comfortable mattress I have ever been on, I had a clear view of the lake. Honestly this place is wonderful and am already planning next years vacation."

  • Relaxation & Recharge Achieved!

    "My family had a great time in this cottage enjoying its uniqueness and comfort. We loved the breeze coming off the water to inside. How relaxing! Your proximity to undoubtably the premier fishing lake in the US is unmatched and will be a spot that we will revisit quite often! Thanks again for the great hospitality!"

  • Perfection

    "This was our third year ( we are actually the very first renters) in beautiful HBC. The cottage is clean, well appointed, with magical views. The lovely bedrooms overlooking the lake allows one to hear the waves and feel the breezes off beautiful Lake Huron. Downtown Lexington is only a few blocks away. Enjoy swimming with the beautiful beach and bonfires at night!"
