  • Really nice family compound

    "My whole extended family went up to Michigan earlier this summer for the first family trip in years. This was a very big deal. There are some members of the family with very "specific" demands and needs (read;high maintenance). As the leader of this fine group, I was tasked with finding accommodations that would be suitable for all of us. Our group included 2 families with kids ages 5-13, 2 grandparents, another young family with a 3 month old and a hipster bachelor! No easy task! However, this property fit the bill perfectly. Thomas and Pat were super easy to work with, answering all of my ridiculous questions. They were just finishing the opening of the property when we got there, so we ended up with a super tour. The original older house was perfect for the grands and the younger family. The kitchen was very nicely outfitted with everything we needed. One of my biggest pet peeves when renting is never having enough serving bowls.....this place had more than enough! The main bedroom/bathroom was swanky enough for those who like swanky. We ended up eating breakfast and dinner in that house every day. The other house is more of a typical rental-type house; open kitchen that is not quite as nice as the other, but certainly sufficient, 2 bedrooms on the smaller side but with excellent bedding and pillows, and a loft full of beds for the kids to sort out. The rec room provided a nice respite for anyone who may not want be in the thick of it with several bed options, as well. The location was also terrific. It is very close to town, nice bike ride or pretty determined walk (we drove, but it took about 5 minutes). The beach is fabulous, no algae or water plants at all, no rocks, nice and shallow for plenty of kid fun! We used the kayaks a lot, rented several SUP's, of course had a boat and tube, used the fire pit, etc. There are also beautiful planters that are self watering all around the houses and decking, a very nice touch that puts this place a notch above the rest. As an added bonus, the owners even leave directions out of the area-which saved us from massive confusion trying to reverse our inbound directions. My only complaint was the mosquitos and the temperature being a bit bracing. Bring your parkas and bug spray and stay here."

  • Amazing place for a family vacation

    "My family and I have stayed here twice. Once in the winter and again in the summer. We've had a great time both occasions. The pictures seriously don't do it justice. The swimming for kids is great because of the sand bar, especially for little ones. The house is very clean with practically everything you need besides groceries. Bellaire is a wonderful town with cute shops and Short's brewery which was a big hit with my husband. We did a few day trips to Charlevoix and to Sleepy Bear Dunes which was perfect with our little ones. The family that owns it has been great to work with. If we did run into anything they were just a phone call away and very helpful. I would recommend this to any family or even a group of friends who are looking for a relaxing week next to a peaceful lake."

  • Beautiful Lake Front Home

    "My husband, sisters and brother decided to do a short get away in the fall and we are so happy we found this beautiful lake front home in Harbor Springs. The home is wonderfully decorated with high end furnishings and linens. The view from the dining room, living room and master bedroom are remarkable. The house is very private, secluded and very clean. I would love to return in the summer so that we can enjoy the private beach."
