Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in your rental home.Our grand kids for an over nighter and enjoyed the sand, finding shells, fishing & playing in the water. Then our friends came for a few days. We golfed, biked the kal-haven trail, and enjoyed the water and your spacious home. Great views of the water-well supplied with everything we needed to feel at home for a week and we had great weather.

If have special needs let me know, I maybe able to tweak a few things to make your stay a little nicer more comfortable. Open floor plan makes for wonderful family get togethers, everything here a family needs to live yr round. Kitchen is fun to cook in you not left out, isolated and well stocked with pots pans, spices other. Great views up and down. The deck off family roof is large seats 6 and great for entertaining, cooking. the counter under windows family room is great for buffet type meals and the sink with running water very hand.

Outstanding Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was more than the listing could have prepared us for. From the quality furniture to the amount of seating, we couldn't have been more comfortable.The open layout was my favorite part of the home. The way that everyone could be together and never feel crowed was just incredible! I loved the wonderful decor of this place, really cool!! Our host Mark had done an outstanding job of having it all. We felt no need for anything. In fact we preferred hanging out at the home, deck and boat more than visiting area attractions . Thank you Mark for allowing our family to make lasting memories in your fabulous home on the lake.

A dream within a dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The property was the perfect getaway for a 6 person trip to a fantastic lake. I booked this stay from the West coast and the property owner, Mark, was wonderful to work with. I flew into Chicago and drove to this property on Great Bear Lake in Michigan with 5 students who attend the University of Chicago. We had a magnificent time playing every water sport imaginable as well as watching a movie, playing ping pong and bean bag toss in the garage, and cooking fantastic meals in the well-equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the Pontoon, the kayaking, the peddle boat, and the rowboat. Mark, the property owner, even came over on our last day to get us all squared away for our Pontoon ride. I can't share enough positives about this tremendous experience.

Wonderful Rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

WHAT A GREAT PLACE!!!! My family of 11 stayed here for a week and couldn't have had a better time. The house was big enough to handle everyone and cozy to make us feel at home. There is everything in this home to make ones stay enjoyable and relaxing. The kitchen is WELL equipped to handle any chefs needs(we ate all our meals at the house)and only used a portion of all the pots and spices that are available.

The owner takes pride in his house and property and it shows. He was very helpful and willing to go out of his way to make sure our stay was enjoyable.

The views were great and the paddle boat,kayaks and pontoon boat were used by the entire family. There was always something to do ie. Ping-Pong,darts,bean bag toss,vidoes,or just enjoying watching the grandkids swimming or playing on the beach.

This house make our stay a truly wonderful vacation and one that we'll be coming back to.

Thx Mark for letting my family use your great house.
