"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."
