"The owners of this rental are wonderful and truly thought of everything to make this a wonderful home away from home! We stayed for the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Whether it was digging around at the local antique stores or finding an amazing restaurant not 12 miles away; or just lazing about on the paddle boat on Lake LeAnn, even our Dog loved this place! We will be back!"

"The cottage was the perfect location for a group of friends to the spend the weekend on the lake. The cottage had a great dock capable of docking two good size boats. The location on the bay is a very short ride (5min) to the main lake. We had no problem sleeping 9 adults comfortably. The cottage had a nice deck with patio sets and a fire pit down in the lawn for an evening fire. There was enough driveway space to accommodate 5 vehicles and the owners were nice enough to let us park our pontoon boat trailer in their driveway. The owners were very responsive during our stay to any questions or concerns we had. The boat launch at the State park was also very close for convenience. We had a great time and would definitely consider to rent here again."

"My wife and I had the Friday before Memorial Day off and we decided that it would be nice to getaway with our kids. I had the great fortune of finding this place. It was only an hour and a half away from our house, but you get that great "up-north feel". Doug and Lisa are great hosts. I can't stress that enough. You can rent from anyone, but it's the hosts that care about your happiness while staying at their cottage that make great experiences. It seemed that their only concern was that my family had a great time.
My kids (5 & 7) loved the loft. They called it their secret hideout and had a blast up there. They brought all there toys up there and watched movies at night before going to bed. Also, my littlest one had no problem going up and down the ladder.
We were blessed with great weather (for late May in Michigan) and used Doug's canoe a lot. We packed up the canoe one day with blankets, food, toys, and water for a little picnic at the park directly across the lake from the cottage. It's a short trip and well worth it. There are swings, a playscape, picnic tables, and a great sandy swim area. Highly recommend the park, but be wary of goose poop because it's everywhere.
The cottage was stocked with everything we needed (minus food of course) and we had plenty of firewood for the nights. I used their gas Weber twice a day while there and had plenty of propane. Doug even had a backup for me just in case. I would also like to add that everyone in the neighborhood was very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend staying here. We loved our time there and we will definitely return."
