Great set up for a group

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure to stay at this house. I stayed with a group of 10 adults and 2 children. The house was set up perfectly to accomadate our group. With a very large kitchen to prepare meals and enough seating for all of us. The access to the beach area was easy as there were not too many stairs. Plenty of parking for all of our vehicles. I will definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Fantastic Family Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful family weekend at the Round Lake beach house! This gorgeous house has everything you could need to enjoy a perfect lake vacation! We swam in the lake, sun-bathed on the sandy beach, cooked s'mores in the fire pit and just had the best family time!

Their home is stunning with 5 bedrooms and plenty of space for everyone! The fully equipped kitchen was awesome for cooking our family meals! The windows overlooking the lake give you the most serene views from all of the rooms! It was everything we hoped it would be!

We will be back for sure!

Round Lake Weekend Get Away

  • 4 of 5

The rental was exactly what we were looking for. Slept 10 comfortably. Great fireplace. Great beach front. Geri was easy to communicate with and very helpful.

The one thing to note was that the basement appears to be in the process of being refinished (cement everything) and was a bit dusty/dirty. We did not spend any time in the basement for this reason but luckily we had nice enough weather that we were only inside the cottage when we were sleeping (which is exactly how Michigan should be).

Not what you pay for

  • 2 of 5

We have stayed at this place for 2 years now. The first year we stayed here, we had few issues. The fridge went out on us on our 3rd day there and we lost a ton of food. The owners were quick to get some one out to fix it, however we were not compensated at all on the food we lost. The kitchen sink faucet leaked, which was not that big of a deal but still made for a mess. Nothing too major until we left. When we left the house, we cleaned it top to bottom. We made sure we cleaned every area of it so that the deposit was returned. The owners did not refund the full deposit because they said the cleaners said it was a mess when they got there. They claimed there was food all over the walls, and holes in the walls. There was no way this was possible, and the owners could not prove it, just went on what the cleaners said. We were very disappointed that they did not try to check themselves to be sure of what the cleaning crew reported.

After everything was said and done, we decided to give it a second chance because the space was a great space for our extended family to stay. When we got there the second year, which was this summer, the main fridge was not working, it was actually warm on the inside. We tried everything to reset it and nothing worked. We called and texted the owners SEVERAL times with no response. We had brought a week's worth of food with us and no where to put it. They finally responded the following day and told us we could use a fridge that was in the garage or one that was in the shed. The one in the garage was full of mold, there was no way we could put our food in there. The fridge in the shed was all the way down by the beach and was a complete hassle to try to get to every meal. The owners never checked back in with us to make sure it was okay, they never sent anyone out to fix the main fridge. The balcony was off limits and was taped off with a note saying not to use. When we got there, the house was dirty, we cleaned it before we brought our stuff into the house. The kitchen sink still leaked all over and there were other little things that were wrong the year before that had not been fixed. Bottom line is, we paid a lot of money to stay in this house, and it was not what we paid for. We absolutely love this lake and the area, it is a shame that the owners didn't take better care of the house or the renters using it. I would not recommend spending the money on this place, not worth the expensive price tag for the week.

This is a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice, truly clean house and the grounds were well kept. It had all the amenities. It was like being at home, except on a clean, quiet lake. The house has a great patio with a firepit where we sat at night and made smores. The grill was used daily. The house exceeded our expectations

Leanne let me know she was available to answer any questions at any time, but the house was so functional we didn't have any concerns.

Everyone enjoyed the stay from my toddlers to my elderly parents. The town is quiet but we found a few good restaurants and had ice cream at the nearby arcade a few times. This was a great place to stay and I would recommend it to my friends.
