"The booking experience was a breeze. Nicola was immediately responsive to the initial inquiry and the transaction couldn't have been easier.
The location is a stones throw from I 43 and very easy to find.
My first impression was WOW !!!! The first impression was not deceiving....it is an outstanding property !!!! The ambiance is of a modernized summer home of the 1930's, but I have never stayed in such a finely constructed and appointed lake home.
The house was lacking nothing. Bath and a half, every kitchen utensil ever needed, lots of warm water for the whirlpool bath, killer deck, spotlessly clean , crisp clean sheets,very comfortable bed, a ton of pillows and towels, central air ( didn't need it), WIFI , TV, ( had to check the weather), grill, fire pit, and privacy....
In spite of all that, the real attraction is the Million dollar view !!!! There are large picture windows facing Lake Michigan. Fantastic !!!
The pictures don't really do justice to how close the house is to the water . Neither do they really bring out the character of the house.
The beach was well kept, clean, and with comfortable chairs and an umbrella. The other property renters were not close enough to be an intrusion.
Only caveat is the cell phone coverage is spotty ...sometimes 4G , sometimes, no service. But what the heck , I didn't care...I was on vacation !! Text message worked. If you cant live without your cell you can hook up to the WIFI and that problem was solved. Also, they have a land line, so no obstacle to must make phone calls.
In summary Barbadon was a 5 star property that I intend to re visit...."
