Amazing House! Best weekend ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely perfect weekend staying at Ranger's Retreat. We came up for Labor Day weekend and were so pleased with the accommodations. The back yard was perfect for our two-year old to run around in and the hot tub was a nice bonus. Well appointed kitchen and great screened in porch for taking naps midday. We will definitely return!

Great Find

  • 5 of 5

We wanted something that was close to everything but still had some privacy, this was it. The home itself is amazing, makes me want to buy a second home in Mi. The rental company( Waya Rentals) was easy to work with and full of information on the area. You could tell they cared about the homes they rented,and to whom they rented them to. We will definitely use Waya again as we come to the area a lot and finding a good rental is hit or miss sometimes

Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best home I have ever rented. The staff at Waya Rentals did a great job when I told them what I was looking for in a home. Rangers Retreat has everything. Having the hot tub and out door shower off of the master bedroom was a wonderful romantic touch. The kitchen was perfect to cook meals in, and the decks were great for enjoying the outdoors. This home had everything needed in it and then some. Highly recommend this house to anyone who wants a great vacation home. Waya Rentals were amazing to work with!

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a great way to spend New Year's Eve! The house was amazing and a perfect set up. I'm thinking of making this an annual tradition. I would recommend this to anyone and actually have already done so.
