Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time spent here! It was the perfect location from the backyard peacefulness with a view of Lake Michigan, to the layout of the house, to the proximity to the best beaches and general store around! We hope to come back!

Owner's Response: We appreciate your support! We hope the views will be even better after trimming this fall. As part of saving our beautiful Oaks, we can only trim in the cooler months now.

Relaxing & thoughtfully put together

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (with their 3 significant others and 1 toddler) really enjoyed our stay. This is ideal for those who would like a bit of seclusion, with just a 15-20 minute drive to some great food options. The tunnel of trees nearby (end of driveway) was originally something we weren't really interested in, but most everyone enjoyed it for walking, running, and cycling.

Outdoors was a great space to chill and there was more than enough wood for the bonfire included in a dry shed.

Inside it felt like a home, rather than a hotel, which many AirBnB listings feel like. There was enough cooking gear for everyone and just enough room for the 9 of us around the table. 1 of the rooms is a bit further away from the others, and there are 2 "living spaces", which made it ideal for a vocal toddler - their schedule didn't interrupt ours.

The hosts never took long to respond and subtle plaques around the house left us without questions of how things worked.

Owner's Response: Thank you Stanley, we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We find the cottage's three living areas (including the basement's game room) well suited for families and relatives. There is enough space for everyone! We hope you are now fans of M 119, The Tunnel of Trees.

Beautiful view of lake, clean cozy large cottage

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a week at the property and absolutely loved it. The cottage was very clean, had all amenities needed. My daughters really enjoyed all the games that were available and are now begging us for a Ping-Pong table :) We saw a few friends on the property: three deer and three baby raccoons, which was a thrill for our girls. The sunsets were just gorgeous. I mis-read the description as I thought we had beach access directly from the cottage. However, we were able to find the private beach easement with no problem and also went to the public beach on Lamkin by the church. The beach was beautiful at each spot, just very rocky in the water so bring your water shoes! The Good Hart general store and the other shops next to it are little treasures. We went to the general store a few times, tried a "world-famous" pot pie and had to try a blueberry pie... absolutely delicious! We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it!

Relaxing spacious home and great views of Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

My siblings, mother and I were there to celebrate my brothers 60th birthday and walk the bridge. We all relaxed very nicely as soon as we got there. We arrived just in time to watch the sunset over the lake and that set the tone for the rest of the weekend!
