"Four generations of our family spent a week relaxing at this beautiful home. There were nine of us ranging in age from 8 months to 86 years old. We also had one dog with us. There was plenty of room for everyone. We found the home to be very clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen was very large with lots of counter space for preparing food. The view from the deck was beautiful. We spent a lot of time relaxing on it. The grounds were also very nicely set up. We enjoyed the lawn chairs, the bench, and the fire pit. We took advantage of the canoe, the row boat, and the kayak. The fishing was not real good, but it was mid August and in all honesty we did not work real hard at it. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable time and we will definitely consider renting the home again in the future."

"My wife, daughter and I stayed here recently for the 7th time and loved it as much as ever. Greg and Michelle do a great job making their home on Chain Lake a nice, comfortable place to stay, and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The house itself is up to date and nicely furnished and decorated. It's also in a great location - about 10 minutes from St. Germain or Eagle River - close to places to run, hike, bike, kayak, eat and shop. I like to fish, and while Chain Lake isn't the greatest fishing lake you can catch crappie and smaller pike there, and Sand and Dam lakes on the same chain are great places to find walleye, pike, and muskie. We took my wife's mother along with us this year and while we were worried about the number of stairs down to the dock, it turned out to be no problem. Would highly recommend the Gard's Grandview Getaway to families with younger or older kids, and couples looking for an active vacation or just some time relaxing."

"Great place to stay and pet friendly. Philip is a great host who is willing to take time to discuss places to visit and eat while staying in the area. Philip’s cottages always contain fresh cut flowers giving one a warm feeling when first entering the cottage. The cottage provides easy access to Lake Superior for great beach walking and agate hunting. We always seem to see bald eagles while walking the beach. This cottage has a large wrap around porch with great views of the lake making for the perfect place to relax after a day of visiting the copper country."

"My husband and I had a wonderful three night stay in this cabin this fall, (2014). It is close to Lake Michigan - in fact if you stay in the bedroom facing the lake, and don't close the blinds, that is what you wake up to in the morning - a view of Lake Michigan! We brought our lab, Cecelia, and she loved it. We went for walks down the beach with her several times. Though the cabin is old, it is nicely kept, and has everything you need. In the evenings, my husband and I would sit out on the screened porch and watch the sunset while Celia nosed around in the little plot of trees near the cabin, and in the sand. As most of us Michiganders know…there is no place like Lake Michigan! We only used the main floor of the cabin but there is also a large area upstairs with beds. This would be a fun cabin for a family vacation as well. And you're not far from Charlevoix or Petoskey here. We came here to relax so we were not looking for activities in town, but we know if we'd wanted to eat out or go to different events, that they were available to us. We came here for the view and time away together. The view was fantastic and the time away was peaceful and fun."
