"I have several friends who get together every year or two since grad school. We are all around 40, some with kids, others single or recently married. We all stayed at this cottage and had a wonderful time. We have stayed in New York City, North Carolina's outer banks, Vermont, and two places further south on Lake Michigan (near Saugatuck.) However, everyone agreed that this place was the best we had ever rented!
We usually stay right on a big body of water, but it was really great to have a large in-land lake, as Lake Michigan was so cold this year. It is a short drive to multiple beaches (and of course the dunes!), but this summer it was too cold to swim in Lake Michigan. So, having the sandy bottomed inland lake was great. We also took advantage of the kayaks, paddle-board and sunfish, along with the indoor games of pool, ping-pong & Foosball.
The house was in immaculate condition. Many of my friends commented that they thought that the house was too nice to rent out! There are beautiful hardwood floors, nice furniture, actual artwork, and a large custom kitchen that was well stocked with everything needed to cook large meals.
Overall, we had a wonderful time and we would definitely rent this cottage again."

"We had a blast snowmobiling in MI. The cottage was perfect for our group. Everything was clean and modern. We enjoyed the fireplace in the evenings and the kids were thankful for the WiFi. We ate out most meals and truly enjoyed your recommendations. We have rented several places around the country, but have never received such great service from the owners. Thanks for everything!!!!"

"We are a family of 6 with four young children (8, 7, 3 & 2). This was our first family trip to Michigan and it didn't disappoint. We arrived late at Surf Song but the owner was there to greet us warmly, show us throughout the home and point out where we could find anything we may need. The house truly had everything we could want from board games to supplies for cookouts on the beach and more. We were close to everything at Surf Song, but also secluded on our own private road with few homes nearby. The view from the home was amazing and we couldn't get enough of it. The owner also had a couple books with information on nearby restaurants, shopping and attractions that made planning our days so much easier. We explored Sleeping Bear Dunes, Fishtown, Lake Leelanau State Park and its lighthouse and many other local attractions. There's so much to do in the area, we hope to return and stay at Surf Song for a summer break in a few years."

"We stayed here in July of this year (with 2 little ones) and the setting was really breathtaking. The condo was clean and the owners were welcoming, helpful and responsive. Beach was a few steps away from condo. In mornings we were greeted by deer right outside door. Because water was a little cold this summer, we took advantage of all of the wonderful sights and things to do within 15 minutes of Glen Arbor - wineries, the Dunes, Leland fishing village, the Manitou Islands... Truly a great family vacation. Will definitely come back."
