About Nicole Sauvola-LaMay

Originally from Clio, Michigan, Nicole purchased this property because she loves the things Michigan has to offer -- beautiful scenery, fresh air and amazing down-to-earth people!!!

Nicole Sauvola-LaMay purchased this Cottage in 2004

Why Nicole Sauvola-LaMay chose Kearney

The location is one of the most friendly and family-friendly locations for all year round sports -- the Chief Golf Course and its sister course, Hawks Eye are two of the most beautiful and challenging courses anywhere in the country!! A place I wanted to come several times a year to relax and enjoy!

What makes this Cottage unique

The King-sized bed in the Upper Unit Master Bedroom is one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in -- I copied the Hilton style of matteress, down mattress cover, and ultra soft sheets....you will return again and again!!

                                                                        Thanks for your hospitality.

                                                                        This is our second stay at this condo. A group of 8 high school friends come up for a golf weekend. This condo is right on the golf course! There is so much to do in this area it's a shame we only play golf. With 2 floors and 2 living spaces there is room to get away from the group if you desire. A short walk over to the Pelican's Nest for barbeque dinner on Saturday was a great way to wind down from the day of golf. We would definitely return.

                                                                        Wonderful location, peaceful surroundings.

Everyone was very impressed and happy with the rental and how much space we had. Everything was clean and there was plenty of room for people to gather and hang out. We rented both units and made use of both kitchens, which had all the utensils you need. We had some great skiing and tubing at Shanty Creek, which was very close by. Great rental and would definitely rent again!

                                                                        Great rental on the golf course

                                                                        Cheryl W.
