  • Great for families with school aged children

    "We arrived on a Saturday afternoon to a quaint cottage set back in the woods and were welcomed by a bottle of wine. The kids could not wait to go to the beach and they did great on the stairs going to and from the cottage. It was the parents that had a challenge the first few times but got better and boy did we feel better about eating tons of food because we worked it all off. It was a wake up call to how out of shape we were. But once you got to the bottom and to the beach, it was worth every step. I can not out it into words the view and sandbars. We stayed for hours and were surprised to see the owner come by sea in her kayak from down the beach. What a lovely lady Miss Judy is and we thoroughly enjoyed her cottage. The other plus was the outdoor shower that looks recently new. We loved it and the kids want one at home. If you rent this property you will not be disappointed. It might pose a challenge if you have infants with going up and down but if you have a backpack - carrier then you would be fine esp. If you enjoy a small hike of maybe 5 minutes tops. If you do rent this cabin, go straight out from the path into the water wade out to about chest level and feel around for 2 huge rocks that our kids named Big Betsy and Little Betsy. You can stand on them and it will put you out of the water to below your waist."

  • Loved it!

    "With the cooler temperatures of Lake Michigan water, it is ideal to rent a home that also has a heated pool. It was a necessity for the children in our family to be able to swim and they were able to day or night!"

  • This home is fabulous, do not hesitate, book it!

    "We had THE most fabulous time here. The home is even more beautiful that the pictures can show. The owner is very accommodating to the needs of this guests with no detail left to chance. The kitchen has every gadget, appliance and serveware options you will need for a gourmet meal. Relaxing on the screened porch with a glass of wine and good company was the best vacation anyone could ask for. As a gardener I really admired the placement and flow of the flowers and plantings as you drive up and the view from each and every window. Enjoy yourself, book it today. You can easily have four couples with room to spare."
