  • Wonderful!!

    "We had our family reunion with 15 people at this magical location and loved everything about it. There was way more room than we needed (only used 3 of the 4 houses) and loved the space to spread out. The beach was great for the kids and the nearby sauna made the cold water easy to tolerate. The facilities were fantastic with a huge, well-stocked kitchen, a nice wood-burning stove, and large dining area where we could all eat together. Julie was very easy to work with and was always available if we needed anything. Highly recommend this wonderful, hidden getaway!!"

  • Everything you need and more in a perfect place by the lake

    "The place is in 100 per cent. accordance with the description, but in reality the cottage is even better. The owners Ted and Lynn live nearby and were most friendly, although we did not need them because everything was in mint condition. When we arrived (early fall chill), the fully automated wood-pellet stove had already warmed up the cottage. A rowboat complete with lifevests lay ashore to our disposition, it is a nice lake to row about (we do not fish, but people do, mostly from slow pontoons). The nice pier should be good for swimming in shallow clear water - in summer, that is. The house is very well maintained and has all the works, flat TV, coffeemaker, four-flame gas stove, outside barbecue, you name it...we did not miss anything and found more stuff than we needed. I would highly recommend this vacation home to all those seeking nature by the water. Secluded as it is, the drive to the Michigan Highway 35 is 2.5 mi gravel and then 10 min to Gwinn (there is a completely stocked supermarket in town) or 35 min to Marquette (24hrs Walmart). We cooked every night (BBQ), but in Little Lake (5 min) there is The Throttle, a no-nonsense bar and restaurant. This being the UP, there are NO "nearby" attractions apart from Gwinn itself (Model Town, quite unique), but for example Pictured Rocks is 1 hour away, the Iron Ore Heritage Bike Trail (very well maintained) is 40 min, Keewenaw is 2 hours away. If it were not so far from home, we would love to repeat in the near future!"

  • Perfect Snowmobile Vacation

    "We booked a last minute snowmobile vacation in the UP with the lack of snow in SW MI. There were six of us and we chose the East Lake Retreat based on size, location and other reviews. I don't know how we could have made a better selection. The location is secluded and quiet, yet only 10 minutes into town. You could snowmobile right out of the driveway and be on the trails in minutes. There was a large driveway that could easily handle 2-3 snowmobile trailers. Plenty of great little restaurants to select from compared to the "chain" restaurants. The home is perfect just like all the other reviews stated. Everything is very organized and extremely "simple" which is just what most of us need on vacation. Barb was quick to respond and great to deal with. It was a terrific way to bring in the New Year! Thanks Barb for everything!"

  • Perfect vacation...

    "As parents of a 6 yo and a set of toddler twins this beautiful beach home couldn't be any more perfect. The images do not do it justice. It has everything that you need to spend a week in comfort with a beautiful beach right out your back door and a spectacular view. We will certainly return."
