"Me and my family; my wife, 11 year-old daughter and 7 month year-old daughter, all traveled to Wisconsin from Southern Illinois to be on the beach on the waters of Lake Michigan for a week during the middle of July. It was 95 at home with a heat index of 105 and the high for the entire week in Jacksonport was 73. Loved it!
This cottage was great for our needs. It was right on the beach (30 yards) with a beautiful view of the water from the kitchen and living area. Made it easy to let our daughter play on the beach without constant supervision. Loved burning fires almost every night. The wood and rock pit (also on the beach) were included in our stay. Needed it, since a couple nights the low was 55...in July!
Close to everything. Our longest drive was 30 minutes. We were 15 from Egg Harbor, 30 from Sturgeon Bay, 10 from Bailey's Harbor, etc.
The highlights of our stay were: The Renard's Cheese factory and tour, our fishing charter with Hooked-Up Charters (we caught TONS of fish and left Wisconsin with over 100 lbs in Salmon fillets), and the Dairy View Country store (also 15 min. away).
The price is reasonable, the beach is great (albeit fairly cold water even in July. Don't worry, the west side of the peninsula, towards Green Bay, was 10 or so degrees warmer on average and only 15 min. away at Egg Harbor), the fires were awesome, and the inside was nice. Looked at the Michigan side of the lake, but prices were higher and sights were further away. Also, we really wanted to do the fishing charter and couldn't be happier with that choice!"

"We've stayed at many places up here, but could never find the perfect place that could give us everything we needed and fit our large group. But with Jim's Hideaway we finally found it! Everything was great! House was big, beach was perfect for the kids, and fishing was so much fun! With the paddleboats, canoe, and boat, everyone could get out on the lake. And the owners are so helpful and nice, which makes all the difference. We already can't wait to come back next year. Thanks so much!!"
