"This was our 2nd annual 3 family vacation and we voted on a 3rd. We love the house, the lake, the sandy area for the kids and the quiet and privacy of this place.
We range in age from a 3 yr old, 5 yr old, 2 - 18 yrs olds, 2 - 21 yr olds, 2 - thirtysomethings, 2 - fiftysomethings, 2 - sixtysomethings. NO one is bored at all. We took trips to St. Joes and New Buffalo and to Four Winds. We ALL had a great time."

"Hello! We wanted to share some comments by our guests from the past several years:
~ "We've again enjoyed another few weeks at your fab home. Eighth year and counting. It has become an indelible part of our children's childhood memories!" (July 2014)
~ "Thanks for an awesome [June] weekend . . . We had a blast! Your house is so quaint & beautiful & so much space. I love the history here & the porch. I so wish we had stayed longer" (June 2014)
~ "Thank you! We loved being here ... once again" (August 2013, 5th summer)
~ "Thanks so much for sharing your slice of heaven with us. This is our second year & our "city kids" find your yard & playhouse & books so magical! And of course, the tree swing! We hope to be back for many years -- as long as you are willing to share :) (September 2012, and they did come back!)
~ "We are so blessed to have found this cottage where we visit year after year. Thank you." (August 2012)
~ "Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us this summer! We have vacationed in Union Pier for the past 9 years and we feel, by far, this is now our favorite location. The house, the yard, the porch, the toys, the well-stocked kitchen -- all made the week enjoyable and easy. We just felt like a week wasn't enough time to enjoy it all!" (July 2012)
~ "Thank you for your attention to design & organization. It is obvious that this is a loved home. We hope to experience it again in the future" (Labor Day, 2011)"

"We enjoyed out stay at Waya's Den. Beautiful yard, setting and view with lots of grassy areas for kids and dogs to play. Nicely redone master bedroom and bathroom. Upstairs bedrooms have a twin bed as well as a double bed in each. Downstairs lounge area is nice and cozy. A couple of things that kept our stay from being 5-star. First, the water for the house must be from a well as it smelled terrible. While I'm sure it was perfectly safe, it was very off-putting to take a shower, brush your teeth, etc. Likely for that reason the fridge doesn't have ice - just an FYI that it's something you need to buy. Second, the lighting in the house at night wasn't adequate - too dark and all overhead lighting. I found it especially dark in the master bathroom, bedroom and main living area. Maybe I'm just getting old but I like more light! Other than those two things it was a nice place to stay. We needed help with the BBQ and Waya was very responsive and came out quickly to get it working. Bring your own beach towels and chairs as the house doesn't provide any."

"Such a lovely condo! We loved the decor, the decks, the pool, the easy walk to the beach, the comfortable beds, the garage, the location and much more! We had a wonderful stay and can't wait to rent Dan and Michelle's condo again next summer!"
