Family Fun Time

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the wonderful lake home SOOO much. The view was incredible, lake access nice and accommodations good. We especially liked two kitchens available to help feed our group of 12. Amy was especially nice and welcoming when we met her at her home. Everything was clean and ready for us. Hope to return some time.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation & beautiful view of the lake. Also, lots of fish in the lake where my husband got more fish from the dock/shoreline rather than being out in the lake. The place was well stock w/ amenities from laundry soap, oil, alum foil and even a night light (I bring my own night light for kids). This place is good for dogs since it was all fenced in. The week was great weather and very relaxing. Location was near dunes, Lake Mi and tubing in the river. Overall, the place met my family's expectations - good time and fun!

Large Lakefront Home Stocked and Plenty of Fun to Have in the Area

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three had a spacious (could really sleep 12 people) fabulous week from the moment we arrived and were greeted warmly in-person by the owners to provide a quick tour of all this lakefront home had to offer. It was fully stocked: 2 refrigerators and freezers, paper towels, toilet paper, plastic ware for the deck and good plates for inside, overhead and portable fans for hot days, plenty of soft towels for showering and the lake, and tons more. Mid-week the owners even conscientiously texted us to see if we had any needs. Some of our fun days were spent all day at the house swimming from the sandy beach, floating on the lake on their two large inner tubes, taking our dog for walks, gorging on delicious dinners thanks to their huge grill followed by s'mores by their fire pit, and using their rowboat to fish. (We used their fishing poles and tackle to catch a bunch of small crappie and even one larger bass.). We also spent fun days on excursions nearby: a canoe trip down the Manistee River, a hike through the national forest, a fishing charter (we brought back over 50 pounds of lake trout and had a delicious dinner fried over the fire pit), a roadtrip up scenic M-22 to Traverse City, and a local you-pick blueberry farm. If you like the outdoors and exercising, it's a treasure. We love to walk, jog, swim and bike, and there are plenty of safe and peaceful routes. We didn't even have time to use the ping pong and pool table in the basement.

Be aware that there is well water, which we are not used to, but because there are stores nearby with varieties of sizes of drinking water, it was not a problem. Otherwise, get ready for a peaceful and fun vacation. Probably the most relaxing and peaceful vacation our family has experienced. Also, our dog loved the huge completely fenced in yard. He came home from vacation tired but happy.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful get away for most people. The owners are very friendly, helpful and want your stay to be as great as possible.

The only things you need to bring is clothing and food. There is absolutely everything available at the house.

You need to be aware that there are steps to the house and then to the lake.

A great plus to this rental is the fence. Entirely enclosed so we did not have to worry about our dog.

Fishing right off the dock. The big fish are further out so you do need to get in the boat if that's all you want to catch.

The only negative was the weed line. You had beach area to swim in, but if you wanted to go out farther,you had to go over the weeds a bit. Yet, if you don't have some weeds, where do the fish go?

Overall we had one of the most relaxing vacations ever. We have a 12 year old and a dog who were exhausted at the end of each day.

We have not received our deposit back. They have up to 45 days to get it to us. I know we treated this home with respect and should get it all back, but have received no word one way or another. VBRO stays it's our last chance to review this home which I wanted to do, yet I have gotten no word about our money.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this great property on the lake! It was great family vacation, and the young children, older adults, and dog had a fantastic stay. The owners were helpful, and accommodated us however they could. I would definitely recommend this property, and you aren't far from other great cities to do some sightseeing and activities.
