"Wife and I were looking last minute for a quick weekend stay along the lake shore. Catch, we needed to take our aged dog for few reasons I will omit. A chain hotel was out, the Nutshell was perfect. Secluded but yet minutes from everything. Perfect for a couple, cozy, very well outfitted and spotless clean. The space very well utilized. We put down the dog bed in front of the couch and he was absolutely content as if the trip was just for him (kind of was). Communications with owner was great and in/out was simple. We typically make a fall UP trip but that didn't work out this year. So, if you are the type to avoid chain restaurants and amusement parks this will most likely be what you want. The wife has already asked me to make plans for next year, so dont book it before I do, enjoy"

"The condo location is excellent for young families. The pool is located steps away from the condo making it easy to go to/from. The private beach front is beautiful and the kids loved playing in the sand.
The kitchen is fully stocked, which made making family dinners very easy. The beds are very comfortable.
Cindy is a pleasure to work with. She was very helpful with answering questions. She checks in to make sure you are enjoying your stay."

"11 of us spend a fantastic extended weekend at this incredible home on the bluffs of Lake Michigan. Our shared meals; visiting in groups or intimate settings; indoor and outdoor fires; game nights; art gallery and brewery visits; reading; relaxing; and hiking were enhanced by the ambiance of this lovely property. We would not hesitate to return to this exquisite location and home. It was a weekend of many fond memories!"

"My extended family (from age 4-68...and I mention this because it is a wonderful home/location for groups of varying ages...something to do for everyone!) spent 1 week here. The accommodations exceeded our expectations. The photos do not do it justice - the best part was that the bedrooms' size and layout gave everyone enough space and we didn't feel like we were all on top of each other. The cousins REALLY enjoyed the bunk/built-in bed room -- what a fun space for the younger ones! Also, the kitchen area was large and a good gathering place. There were plenty of place settings and appliances to cook any meal you would want. The high ceilings make the space feel very open and large. This is a wonderful home for groups or a big family. The owners have been very thoughtful and even included a binder inside the house about things to do in the area, they provided basic food items like sugar/salt/oil, and plenty of paper towels, napkins etc.
There is a nice grassy yard area in the front for kids to play games, basketball, etc. There is a lovely rear porch with a large table where we enjoyed many outdoor meals. The view from the patio across lake Michigan is absolutely stunning! The outdoor furniture was well maintained and comfortable. The house was kept extremely clean and was inviting (and, as opposed to other homes we've rented...everything worked (ie: TVs, appliances, AC, etc!). The beach itself at the house was on the smaller side but we did use it every day (and from reading other reviews of homes in the area, it seems that beach levels are quite variable even week to week with local seasons/weather). The owners were exceptionally easy to work with both in the rental process and while we were in the home. We contacted them once over a very minor table repair and they took care of it immediately and were proactive about making sure the repair was at our convenience and did not disrupt our vacation plans. This home definitely is very professionally managed and has a "vacation" feel about it, and it was our pleasure to enjoy it this summer. If we are back in the south haven area, I would absolutely rent this home again."
