"This cottage was wonderfully decorated, charming and equipped with everything we needed. Our family enjoyed golf, both indoor and outdoor pools and the beach. I can't wait to print our sunset pictures!"

"WOW! The "Hot Shot Lodge" is awesome! It was peaceful and quite, but close enough for everyone to do their own thing! We celebrated my birthday while we were there and I must say it was pretty special this year! Thank -you Bob and Sue for the wonderful experience!"

"We stayed here with our big family in the summer and had a wonderful time at the beach, grilling out, and having a campfire. It was beautiful, clean, and relaxing. We walked the beach each day, biked and canoed nearby. We made several short day trips to Leland, Traverse City, and Sleeping Bear Dunes. The home was clean and perfect for cooking in the kitchen and grill area- it was a great place to visit with family and friends. A perfect spot for everyone to enjoy. We even went back in the winter to ski! What fun!"

"My wife and I had a very enjoyable weekend stay, even in winter weather. Location on a bluff with a wide unobstructed view of the lake is fantastic. Enjoyed the views and sound of the waves from the sunroom, kitchen, family room, back yard, hot tub, etc.... With temps in the teens it was too cold to hit the beach, but the hot tub was nice and private. The sunroom made it up into the high 60s. When a late snow storm blew in, the crashing waves breaking up the icebergs were great. I've stayed in many rental homes over the years. This house definitely presents itself as a family's home, and not a typical vacation rental. This has pros and cons. The house could use larger bathrooms, updated TV, and a few repairs. The neighbor's house which shares the driveway is generally not visible from most rooms inside, so you get the sense of privacy, but it's definitely within earshot as we were treated to the pounding of a basketball game one afternoon (after all it was during March Madness). Overall it's a good value with great views and easy beach access. Will definitely consider returning with the whole family. Recommend stocking up on food before you arrive so you have no reason to leave. Not quite perfect, but definitely grades an A, so I'd give 4.5 stars if possible."
