Great getaway, great house
The house is superclose to the beach, which was great for our little getaway. You basically just cross the street and walk down a hill and you are there! Not close enough to hear the waves, but being able to see the water from the windows or from the balcony is a great thing to have. House itself is spacious, was very clean und equipped pretty well! It even had 2 pack n plays for toddler/babies if needed and the beach umbrella came in handy as well!
Thanks for having us! Communication with Megan was quick and very easygoing.
Great weekend getaway
The house was great and the owner was easy to work with.
Great location, right next to beach. Kitchen had all we needed for cooking breakfast and lunch. Comfortable beds.
Clean house, wonderful location
We had 4 adults, 2 young children and a newborn. The house was just what we expected. Just across the road from the beach, we had a good view and a short walk to the beach and the kids playground. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, and more.
Thanks for the review! So glad you enjoyed your time at the beach!
Historic home with conveniences and location
This home does not feel like a rental; it feels like staying at a friend's house. The home has a really interesting history but has been fully renovated. We found it spotlessly clean (and we are really picky). We stayed with two couples, a single, and a child.
The location is delightful. From both the front porch and the deck off the master you can see the lake sparkling across the small road and large beach. The road is just used by beach-goers during the day and is quiet at night. You can easily walk to the playground and marina or into downtown.
The kitchen has all the tools and plenty of linens and connects beautifully to the dining and living rooms across a breakfast bar. The sink is huge. We were able to seat six around the dining table comfortably, but it is easy to chat between kitchen, dining, and living room if you aren't all eating at just the same time.
Bathrooms are convenient and easy to share. There is an easy access, large shower upstairs and a powder room on the main floor. They are recently renovated (with plenty of hooks for many towels) and everything worked perfectly. There is a hall linen closet with extra sheets and towels.
The master bedroom upstairs is spacious -- we were able to bring up the trundle mattress from downstairs for a kid and still had ample room despite plenty of luggage. There is a beautiful, huge dresser with mirror and shelves. The other bedrooms (one on each level) are smaller but still had plenty of room and a cozy feeling. All bedrooms have comfortable mattresses and useful closets.
The home is pleasantly decorated with fun colors and cute touches. It feels really personal and welcoming. The owner was super responsive to our questions and there is a local caretaker.
This home was a comfortable and relaxing setting for our little family gathering and I would definitely want to stay again.
Thank you so much for your lovely review and we are so glad you enjoyed your time!! We hope we have the opportunity to host you again :)
A charming home to unwind and catch up with old friends. Beautiful views of a gorgeous lakefront.
How appropriate to spend time with " old " friends in this historic home on Lake Michigan. All the amenities and none of the distractions made this a delightful visit. The house is beautifully renovated but has the charm of the1860's. All necessities are there- linens, beach towels, grill, fully equipped kitchen. What a pleasure to sit on the porch or balcony and watch the sunrise, walk the beach, and see the moon rise over Lake Michigan. We highly recommend !
