"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!"

"We rented the upstairs unit of this guest house for the tulip festival. It was pleasantly spacious, bright and very clean. The bed was really comfortable and gave us a restful sleep. It is in a nice quiet location so we were able to enjoy sleeping with the windows open.
Dan, the owner, is a very nice person and went out of his way to make sure we felt welcome and had everything we needed.
We certainly enjoyed our stay at this guest house."

"My family of 7 adults/3 dogs stayed here for a relative's wedding last year and had a wonderful time. We were a high maintenance group (we needed to rent a few extra days and they allowed us to bring 3 dogs) but the owners were so accommodating. We really appreciated the flexibility. It's an excellent location if you are looking for peace and quiet - just a quick walk to catch the sun set over Lake Michigan and for us, a quick drive/bike ride right around the corner to our relative's house. The house itself has a bright open concept, is sparkling clean and everything functioned as expected (I think it has central air conditioning but we didn't need it when we were there in mid-August). We had plenty of living space and bathrooms for all of us to get ready for the wedding. And we loved that we could help ourselves to the mint in the backyard for our mojitos!
We wouldn't hesitate for a second to consider this house again for another stay."

"This was our first visit to this cottage and to Lake Michigan. Our family of four had a wonderful week long vacation here that, at least for my 9 year old daughter, beat out our trip to Disney World last year. She said that the only thing that would have made it better would have been to never go out! We did go check out Pentwater, though. We were a bit off season so some of the shops were closed, but we knew that ahead of time. We also went to Ludington to check out Big Sable Lighthouse.
Other than that we spent lots of time hanging out in this house. We read books, watched a few movies (they have cable and Netflix), enjoyed a couple fires in the fire pit, swam and jumped around in the waves and walked the beach. It was delightful.
The house was clean and comfortable. It had all the items we might need to cook and enjoy the beach. There were even lots of random household items like bandages, shampoo, tons of towels and I found a couple pins in the bathroom drawer that came in handy while we were there. It is decorated with pictures from the owners' families which gives it a lovely personal feel.
I experienced great communication with the owner by email. I had several questions during the planning process that were answered in a timely and pleasant manner.
We all agree we'd be happy to come back to stay here again!"
