  • Just lovely

    "I just stayed at this rental for a 3-day Labor Day weekend. I got married on Saturday and used it as a place for my bridal party stay at the night before, the elderly guests that couldn't camp the night of, and me and my husband to stay the night after. It was SO fabulous. I'd recommend it to anyone. Very spacious and loved the hammock. It was a great place to do per-ceremony pictures at (there's a rustic barn) and was so cozy. I'd definitely look into this place if you're getting married at Button Bay State Park."

Four blocks from downtown but in a quiet beautiful neighborhood. The apartment itself is very clean and beautifully decorated. They provided everything. All the little odds and ends that you forget to bring on vacation. Really a PERFECT place! Thanks again!"

  • AMAZING HOME

    "The house was perfect for a Thanksgiving vacation getaway. It was very warm and comfortable. The pictures of the house were great, but seeing in person was breathtaking. I would recommend this home to anyone needing to relax."

  • Relaxing Get Away

    "We vacationed here for the first time with our almost 3 year old son and dear friends. It was great to unwind and disconnect (our choice) from electronics and reconnect with our friends and family. We enjoyed coffee every morning by the water while our son played for hours on the sandy beach. The accommodations were beautiful - very clean, well stocked house! The owners were very attentive to our needs but also respectful of our privacy. A most memorable vacation! Just what we needed as a family! Would love to visit here again."
