We had an excellent week as this property was recommended to us by friends who have stayed there before. There was so much room and the pool was the hit of the week. And I would recommend to anyone

Perfect place for our family needs!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home this weekend as we celebrated my daughter's graduation from University of Notre Dame. The house was perfect!! It was clean, spacious, peaceful, and just a short drive from the University. My family was able to spend quality time enjoying meals and just personal time visiting. Thank you Shea for sharing your home :)

My family and I had a wonderful time at this location. We needed a central spot for celebrating her graduation and this was perfect. The house was very spacious, clean, and had everything that we required (we did all our cooking). The view from the living room is very relaxing! Too bad we couldn't use the pool or do much outdoors due to the weather. All in all, I would recommend this place for others. You will get great value for your money.

From the moment I sent the email and received a response, I knew we made the right choice choosing this Buchanan home! The location is ideal; close to activities, but far enough to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of Michigan. Home is clean, spacious, has just about everything you can need. The bedrooms-two with queen beds, one with double and a bunk along with a trundle bed. Room for everyone. Kitchen well stocked. Living room and family room, each with tvs. Only regret is it wasn't warm enough to enjoy the in-ground pool that was closed for the season. Shea is responsive, friendly, and anxious to make your stay pleasant and memorable. Look forward to visiting this home again in the future!
