Guestbook comments from the owner

Sad to leave this wonderful cottage. Our girls had the best time tubing and kayaking. What a fun and relaxing week. We hope to be able to return next summer!

This was our 3rd year staying there. We just love it. When we walk in the door and we feel like we are home.

The view is awesome! Every day you wake up and look out you feel like you are in heaven.

There is everything you need.

When you are outside on deck or in water you do not see the neighbors. It is so peaceful.

There is plenty of room to have family over. Our grandkids love it at the lake house as they call it.

We would recommend it.

Pretty setting with beautiful sunrises.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is in an absolutely beautiful setting with a nice beach and huge lawn for games or entertaining. It was clean and had most of what was needed for our stay including beach towels. The lake was very pretty and lovely for swimming. The ability to also rent the pontoon and use of the kayaks and paddleboat was a great feature. There is one private bedroom for adults and the 2nd bedroom has bunk beds. The sleep cabin has one open area for sleeping which is most suitable for children. If you plan to bake, you will need to bring your own eqipment (no hand mixer, pans etc) Also note that the bbq is very small. We would rent this property again.

Perfect week!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time this past week on Whitmore Lake! The house was fantastic and had everything we needed for our stay. The property was beautiful with a fantastic lake view. It exceeded our expectations and hope to return again in the future. One of the best weeks we have had in a long time!

Wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay away from the chaotic traffic of Ann Arbor for my daughter's graduation from UofM. Although the entire long weekend was cloudy and rainy, we enjoyed our staycation in this lake house. We ate in every meal, played games and drank in the beautiful view. Easy access to both Ann Arbor and the Detroit airport.

Exceeded expectations - WOW

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for us for our family gathering. The accommodations were just what we needed. It was very private with fantastic lake views but at the same time very close and accessible. The property was well stocked, comfortable and has a great vibe.

What A Place

  • 5 of 5

Best place on the best lake in the area. Everything we needed was right there. Great swimming area for the kids. Good fishing. Wonderful amenities. Very nice addition of the fire pit. You can't find a better place on Whitmore Lake. It was great that our stay coincided with the Ann Arbor Art Fair. Looking forward to staying here again.
