Fun family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The house came as advertised which is what you want from VRBO. Great location and all the comforts of home. Mill Lake is a gem, small but private.

Beautiful house on quaint lake

  • 5 of 5

This beach house rental was comfortably equipped with everything we needed. Styled to fit the home - not your typical old cottage decor. Clean, well taken care of and literally steps from the beach. The outside patio is where we spent most of our time enjoying the view and meals cooked off the grill. The kids loved playing soccer and horse shoes in the field across the road and on the playground equipment. We traveled to South Haven and Kalamazoo on our rainy days. I would highly recommend this rental for your stay. Can't wait to come back for another vacation, maybe even a winter stay!

A get-a-way by the lake

  • 4 of 5

A nicely appointed 60's ranch with everything you need to make your stay carefree.

Steps from the lake. Across from a grassy play area and a playground. Tennis court.

The house even comes with board games and DVD's. A short ride to Kalamazoo and a shorter ride to South Haven.

Three generation vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent vacation location for families. Our group was 4 adults, 2 children and a baby and the layout of the rooms was perfect for our needs. I did need to bring a pack and play for the baby. The house was clean and well supplied with everything we needed. Since we had the baby, we spent most of the time on site and used the stove, oven and grill to cook and the washer/dryer to keep up with laundry. Everything worked perfectly. We all enjoyed the community beach and the children liked the playground. My husband rented a small fishing boat from a local resident and this worked out well as long as the larger power boats were not out on the lake at the same time.

Perfect lake house for our family. Clean and very well equipped and furnished. Plenty of room for dinning and lounging. Lake, playground, and tennis court all within 50 feet of the house. Gas grill was

A great option for outside grilling. Definitely would consider returning.

Looking forward to our next stay.

  • 5 of 5

The owner Nicole was a pleasure to deal with. The house was spotless and very well equipped with pots, pans, utensils, glasses, paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, etc, she has everything covered, just bring your own toiletries. The front of the house has a patio table and plenty of seating the yard was huge with an additional sitting area off the back door. The beach and play area for the kids is about 50 feet from the home. The kids ran back and forth all day.They had so much fun jumping off the swim doc, fishing, catching frogs and turtles.... plenty to do. We never heard the words I'M BOARD. Visited both Saugatuck and South Haven both towns are beautiful and no too far from the home.

Looking forward to our next stay in this Shamrock Shores Home.
