"Thank you so much for sharing your cottage with us! We had an amazing time with our family. It was so nice to be able to relax and enjoy the beautiful lake. We were kayaking, fishing & swimming every day!! :-) The cottage had everything (and more) that we needed to make our stay comfortable. We hope to make this an annual vacation. We had a blast!"

"Just back from a fabulous girls weekend. Our cottage stay was "perfect" in my sisters words and more than we could ever ask for. Arriving in 3 feet of snow, the owner greeted us with a warm smile and a freshly cleared and salted path to walk up to the cottage. When we entered the house a fire was going in the fireplace and it was so inviting. We were instantly convinced we'd have the time we were hoping for. Before the arrival and during the booking process Cory was always available to answer questions and offer advice on fun things to do in town. I never once had an issue contacting him and he was always so upbeat to talk with. I could tell he enjoyed renting this lovely property out. His service continued with excellence during our stay and he went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable, felt at home, and cared for. Some of our favorite moments included roasting marshmallows around the fire place, having a fabulous dinner at the Kirby grille room, sipping wine in the porch and relaxing the night away. Ps. He even provided slippers so that our feet wouldn't get cold due to the frigid temps outside. Who does that? :) service like that doesn't exist anymore. Overall we had the best most memorable time. Can not wait to go back!!!"

"We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is warm and comfortable and we are looking forward to returning when the weather is better. We had a relaxing time and it was great to be able to take our furry friend, Izzy our Golden Retriever with us."

"What a great house for a big family or extended family!
Bedrooms: 5 bedrooms, including the great kids' room, complete with loft. Master bedroom is large and very comfortable! There is a second smaller master bedroom downstairs as well. The other 2 bedrooms both have twin beds.
Bathrooms - 4 bathrooms - 2 with showers (one with a wonderful rain shower head) One bathroom has a very nice Jacuzzi, which got a lot of use!
Kitchen - the kitchen is very nice; upscale appliances, any dish, pot pan, utensil, etc. that you can think of. A nice table that holds around 7-8 people comfortably plus some bar stools by the counter. The kitchen opens into the...
Dining Room - large table that holds 12 people. A must for a large family vacation. Fireplace.
Living room - comfortable with large tv and gaming system. Fireplace in living room. 2 large couches, perfect for chatting or playing games on the coffee table.
Upstairs family room area - we loved this room!! Books and games, just a great casual area, has window seat that easily accommodates 2 adults, with their tea and books. Also has two comfortable chairs for sitting as well. A nice place to be by yourself but because it's right above the living room, you still feel like you are part of the "action."
Beach - the beach is wonderful! There were 4-5 beach chairs in the living room closet. We loved the "singing sand" of Lake Michigan and what a nice beach to just relax and enjoy the view. The water temps were very cold, but that didn't stop my 12 yo from going in. The sand is very soft and the views are beautiful.
The Castle - small lending library open to guests. Plus it's a Castle, how cool is that? A nice walk from the house.
The house is not close to any other homes, which gives you great views and a lot of privacy.
The owner will email you a large document of directions, instructions, etc. Any question we had about anything that week was answered in there. Especially pay attention to the directions; it's a little tricky at the end and her directions were invaluable. Do NOT plan to arrive after dark; you don't want to be driving that road for the first time at night.
The owner was also very responsive throughout the whole process. If we were ever back in the area we would love to come back!"
