Lovely, well-equipped, and spacious home.

  • 4 of 5

Two families of my cousins (2 generations of adults) stayed at the Lakefront Island Inn during a family reunion and loved it. We didn't do any major meals that the house as it wasn't really equipped for a sit down meal of 9 people, let alone with extra people not staying at the house. But is worked fine for breakfasts and lunches, with people sitting both in the living room and on the decks. We didn't use the downstairs kitchen. One very tiny complaint was the absence of towel bars or other places to put towels after they were removed from the closets for use. The bedrooms were spacious and everyone said they slept well.

Chilling on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My weekend journey was restful, peaceful and joyful as I along with family and close friends celebrated my anniversary of being cancer free 5 years. The accomdations of were just what the doctor ordered and our hosts Stacey and Tom couldn't have been more gracious.i truly could take the entire basement hide away home with me. 👌? My guests were impressed with the Tiki Bar I was unable to go but they made a video of their journey and they had fun. I would highly recommend this home and plan to return in the very near future, Jackie

WOW! This place sets the bar high

  • 5 of 5

I'm not even sure to begin with this stunning house! The kitchen was beautiful with Everything you needed to have a nice home cooked meal. Each room made you feel so pampered and Was beautifully decorated...The house/property was spacious and had several great places for our guests to gather together. The hosts did a beautiful job with all aspects of this home! Not to mention they were quick to respond to messages. I am not sure we'll ever find A place on HomeAway that is as wonderful as this! To be somewhere that is 5 star quality and makes you feel right at home was an unforgettable experience. If your looking for a home in the area this is the place to be! You will not be disappointed :) can't wait to go back.

Truly five star! The best of the best!

  • 5 of 5

The Island Inn is truly one of a kind.... Stacy and Tom have done a great job with the decor, high end mattresses/linens, top of the line Televisions, .... I just cannot give enough praise for the experience my family and I enjoyed during our five day stay. We loved being able to fish literally in our back yard, being 10 minutes to the largest outlet mall in Michigan, 10 mins to Costco, and spending time on the beautiful lake (Stacy organized a rental pontoon boat for us to use during our visit).

My husband and I are already making plans to spend 2-3 weeks at the Island Inn next summer! Truly a peaceful, elegant place to call 'home'.

We love to see new places but it will be hard to top this one!

  • 5 of 5

For sure this "Island Inn" themed Lakehouse gets 6/5 starts in our book! We came from Arizona with my husband and ten year old and I and flew in mom and baby sister. We had aunts, uncles, grand parents and cousins come from the surrounding area and they were all equally impressed. We did a ton of cooking, swimming, floating and gathering and none of it could be matched! Ohhhhh and the fishing!!! Even had a couple poles included :). Wegot to take a peak at their island Tiki Bar! We just returned from Costa Rica and it was VERY similar believe it or not. Wasn't super clear if we were supposed to be visiting that or not so just want to throw out that it and the golf cart if not included might want to outline that more clearly, or if you are reading this, ask. The decor of the house, layout, amenities are SO IMPRESSIVE!!! Paint is new, literally these hosts didn't miss a THING! Extra hygene items in a basket in the closet, even cards and games! 2 kitchens including tons of spices, great knives...made hosting our whole family with out eating out a breeze. Excellent patio furniture, tons of outdoor dining, bug spray included (and in some times of the day, needed). GORGEOUS neighborhood, AMAZING neighbors! GREAT LOCATION! Costco, Target, Dicks Sporting Goods all with in 5 min. I have family all over the state no one was more than an hour. Sufficient parking. Did I mention the decor? WOW! I have stayed at most of the 5 star hotels in LA, and this takes most! HAD to be professionally done. Wow. Check in check out so easy, awesome little guest book, BREATH TAKING VIEWS from all 3 floors. Just wow. THANK YOU Stacy, you and your family are so kind and thank you for doing this!!! SOOOOOO much better than any hotel! Great for adults, parties, families, these kids (and us) had a BLASSSSSSST!

Great place overall! It's within a neighborhood but has a secluded setting making it feel private.

  • 5 of 5

I met with the owners the day before who gave me a walk through of the place. It truly felt like "our home"! Had a lot of family in town for a wedding and they felt at home- it was really nice having them all together in one place. Between the hospitality, easy availability/contacts and the thought put into maintaining the place, my guests and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Everything is well maintained and updated and each room has a personal touch to it. Not to mention that it has a beautiful waterfront but it also has a secluded feeling to it! Truly lovely place!!!! If available, we will stay here again in the future is we need a place. Thanks Stacy(and your husband)!!!!!!!
