Fun Girls Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had an enjoyable weekend at the lake house. The pool and hot tub was a good time. The house was clean and came with all the essential utensils which was convenient. The basement was a little musty. There was also just one toliet in the upstairs bathroom. Overall, we really enjoyed the time spent at the lake house and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relaxing weekend.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation! Shelly was very accommodating and just a phone call away. The kitchen had everything we needed. The neighborhood was just gorgeous. Very clean house and pool and the beach was just a short walk away. Highly recommended! We will be back!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were scrambling to find a rental in the St. Joseph area and only had about 2 weeks to find something. This house happened to be available in that time frame and it's a miracle, as it was absolutely perfect for our family of 5, including 3 girls ages 8 and under.

The house itself was a blast to stay in, we can't say enough about it. The pool itself is fantastic especially if you have kids, who also loved the hot tub on the deck. There's a private beach available within a 10 minute walk. The house is secluded off of a private drive in the woods right off of Lake Michigan. All we needed to bring with us were clothes, toiletries, food and beach towels, everything else was completely stocked.

As great as the house was, the location of this house was equally as great. While the house itself felt isolated, it was a 5 minute drive to the closest Meijer as well as anything we could want in Stevensville. Better yet, it was less than a 15 minute drive to St. Joseph's Silver Beach area, and we spent a large part of our week in that fabulous town. Can't say enough about this place, thanks guys for an unforgettable week!

Owner's Response: Hi Regan, Thank you very much for your review. So glad you enjoyed your time at the Lake House. You are correct with the heavy, heavy rains that we had, we did get moisture in the bedroom area. We have taken steps to mitigate the problem. Please keep us in mind for a future visit. Best regards, Shelly

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The weather was crappy, but we still enjoyed our stay at The Lake House. There is a beautiful view of the inland lake from the back pool/hot tub area. The hot tub was nice. It was too cold for us to use the pool (although we didn't expect to, on Mother's Day weekend in Michigan!). Lake Michigan beach access is a short walk. The house was clean.

Property was beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was even better than the photos. It was clean and beautifully decorated. The view from the back yard was amazing. We walked down to the beach and it was very peaceful and quiet and the public beach down the road was also very nice. We will definitely be coming back when the weather is warmer and the pool is open. I highly recommend this property.
