Charming cottage and community

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved our stay at The Troll's Den! The Beachwalk Community, where it resides, is safe, clean, and filled with friendly neighbors, owners and renters alike. We initially came to enjoy the Dunes and Lake Michigan, but were pleasantly surprised by how many more activities were available to us - kayaking and paddleboarding on Lake Kai (within the Beachwalk Community), nearby Washington Park Zoo, free evening music concerts in Washington Park, nearby Lighthouse Outlet Mall, and day excursions to Chicago (1.5 hrs away), New Buffalo, MI (20 min), and St. Joe's, MI (45 min).

Specific pros/cons about The Troll's Den:

PROS:

Cottage is charming and clean with comfortable beds and good water pressure in shower.

Dishwaher, washer/dryer are in good working condition - we used these daily!

The property owner, Anders, was efficient and effective in his communications with us before and throughout our stay.

CONS:

While the listing indicates it sleeps 7, we found it to sleep only 6 comfortably - two queens and one bunk bed with 2 twins.

There is a standard vacuum and broom/dustpan available, but one might want to bring a handheld vacuum for all the sand that makes its way into the cottage!

Overall, a lovely stay. We'll be back!

Very nice cottage for our first stay

  • 5 of 5

Great size for a family of four, and conveniently located near the pool. Our 4- and 2-year old boys loved the bunk bed room, and our bed was super comfortable too.

Nice small cottage

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was cozy but the living room was too small for 4 adults and 2 children. It would be fine for a couple.

Construction going on in back. Couldn't park in the driveway. The kids couldn't play in the back yard.

Wonderful place to make memories with our family

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to the Trolls Den for the last few years and each time we come back wishing we were still there. The property is in excellent condition everytime. My kids are getting older but still have a blast. Anders is a great host and we can't wait to go back.
