  • Perfect Retreat

    "This was an excellent location for a family vacation. The home is even better than the pictures (and the pictures are pretty good). You have lake views from nearly every window which is fantastic. The layout on the main floor is perfect--TV away from the dining area and family area. The downstairs is perfect for kids. We have stayed in several homes for family trips in Michigan. This was our favorite. The owner is also incredibly helpful and responsive which is a huge bonus."

  • 25th anniversary Family trip

    "My really enjoyed our stay. The house was exactly what we needed for our group of 6 adults and 2 kids. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. I can't say enough how beautiful the private beach was! Way beyond my expectations. Powder sand, beautiful view. We had the whole beach to ourselves most of the time we were down there. The walk down to the beach is a bit of a struggle with beach things and kids, but well worth it! We drove 2 hours to Mears MI - Sliver Lake and rode the Dunes - loved it! It rained two of the days we were there and struggled a little with finding enough to do to fill the time. I would highly recommend this house just based on the private beach."

  • 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."
