"Three of us stayed at the cottage on Reeds Lake. We are on a tour with a show travelling around the country, so have stayed in many places.. This was one of our favorites! Exactly as described and pictured, beautifully clean, cosy and the bed for which I speak (master bedroom) was incredibly comfortable. Loved having a fireplace in the kitchen. And we even made it out onto the lake for a quick spin in the pedlo, despite the cold! I would highly recommend staying here. Dani"

"If you are looking for a place to really get away from the hustle and bustle of daily living, this is the spot. As you sit at the edge of the property overlook a beautiful valley all you hear are birds chirping, leaves rustling in the breeze as you watch Hawks flying above, As noted there are hiking trails right outside the door. Darby has everything you would need for your stay. If you have kids...well they are in for a treat. Darby recommended a spot with the best pizza ever (there is a wait) and if you didn't know abou the spot, you would never go in to place your order. Beaches in the area are beautiful. I cannot say enough about how accomodating Darby is."

"Our family has stayed at the Howard House 3 times in the past year and a half and comes highly recommended. The house is nicely decorated, clean, and maintains the charm of the late 1800s while having every modern amenity along with a fully equipped kitchen. The area is quiet while being central to all you could want to see and do in Grand Haven. We had everything we needed and the owner was very helpful with any questions regarding the property or about Grand Haven. We loved the covered front porch; the spot for our daily morning coffee making it the perfect place to relax. We’ll be back to Grand Haven and stay at the Howard House again. Many thanks for great memories!"

"This house is exactly as it says, 'Charming'! We rented this house at the last minute over Labor Day weekend and Sharon was very accommodating. We met her and Jim at the house and they showed us around and stayed and talked to us for a bit. We had 4 adults and 3 girls and it was perfect. The girls slept in the twin bedroom and there was a rollaway in the basement that fit right between the beds. The back yard was nice and big for games- bean bag toss, bocce ball and on the last night we enjoyed a bonfire. Everyday we walked into town either for dinner, farmers market and/or shopping. The location was wonderful for all of this. It's farther to the beach so we choose to drive and that worked fine. The bathroom was a nice size with double sinks. Several other houses we looked at just had a pedestal for the sink and that doesn't leave any room for toiletries. There was plenty of drawers in this bathroom for storage. Thank you Sharon and Jim for being so accommodating and for sharing your home with us! I highly recommend this house."
