Great, quiet spot for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house + converted garage for 7 of us, plus baby, plus pup. Had beds to spare too. Clean, comfortable, felt like home. Well equipped kitchen (we were cooking up a storm). The enclosed patio was the perfect venue for us to relax in the evenings, with the sizable yard where we could leash our pup on a 30 foot lead and let him explore within eyesight.

Convenient to multiple breweries and wineries in the area, great farmers market with loads of fresh, local produce. Easy drive from I-94, 5 min drive to Warren Dunes. Chris was easily available for all of our questions, and had plenty of suggestions about the local area too!

Will definitely stay here next time we plan a Michigan retreat.

Perfectly appointed

  • 5 of 5

My group shared this home for a week and had a great time. The house was in great shape, and the annex next to the house was perfect for the college aged nieces who joined us. The home was stocked with everything we needed to make meals, watch late night movies, build camp fires, and relaxing in the screened in porch.
