Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect week at this fantastic lake house! The view is amazing and the house had everything we needed and more. Bill was great and super-responsive with everything. The house was very clean, had a great deck overlooking the lake, and a lot of land for the kids to play on! The pontoon boat rental really made the trip! We will be coming back again!

Highly recommended!!

Great Lake Cottage

My family and I stayed at Bills place in August 2015. Bill was really easy to work with and his house is the perfect lake house with every thing you could possible need for a relaxing week at the lake.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our week long stay at property #458499 and had the time of our lives. Such a nice home, well cared for and so comfortable. The pontoon boat was fun, large enough for 10 people and had great pick-up. It was such a pleasure to cook in a kitchen that was a good size. The gas grill was right outside the back door and next to a lovely patio with a view of the lake. My favorite place was the early morning coffee on that patio. Another deck off the living room was perfect for dinner. We were able to walk out in the water quite a distance because of the sandy beach. This place is great and lives up to it's description well.

Great Family House

  • 5 of 5

My family, including young grandchildren stayed here in July 2013. Before we even left my wife and kids demanded we get it for next year. Place was as good as advertised. Took up the boat rental which was great for touring around Michigan Lake. Everything was clean and in working order. Neighbors were nice and friendly. Have stayed on other lakes in the area but this was definitely the best. Played golf several times at nearby places, easy to get to and get on. Plenty of sleeping space and TVs all around. Only 20 minute drive to St. Joe area, but we stayed and cooked here each night but one. Can bike ride in and around the lake or take off out into the country roads. The owner knows the area and was more than helpful in answering all questions. Already booked 2014.
