Guestbook comments from the owner

We felt it was clean and modern ( yet

still "cabinny" ) and would love to come back and stay again sometime.

Our only significant complaint was the lack of air conditioning - the last

couple days and nights were stifling - yet we would chalk that up to

absolutely bad luck - the heat wave that blew through was almost historic.

Pro's - Very comfortable, modern home, yet absolutely retains that "up

north" feel. Very quiet neighborhood. Loved the lot, and the lake.

Nice to be able to access your garage ( we kept one of our cars in

it ) and have access to your tools ( the axe ! ). We loved the fire ring,


the way. Your two decks ( upper and lower ) are awesome !

Your DSL service was very good, and the TV service was ok. Your supplies

( and quality ) of paper goods were excellent, as well as your

washer/dryer / detergent.

Con's - No air conditioning was the biggie.

Thanks again for renting us your place....Your off-season deal seems to be

a good one, too. Make no mistake - we really enjoyed your

home, and the way you managed it.

As beautiful as the pictures

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time! Would suggest a high chair with a tray since the table is high and a baby gate for stairs. My girls did love the mirror coming down the stairs and playing at the lake:)

Two weeks of Heaven in Michigan

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks stay on Lake Louise! The weather was very cooperative, cool in the mornings and evenings and by midday in the mid-70's. The house is located in a quiet and private area. It was a wonderful area to walk, boat, fish, swim and just relax by the lake. My children enjoyed the greenery, space of the yard and peacefulness. The house was plenty big for a family of 7. We loved the town of Gaylord, especially the ice cream store and Tap 32 restaurant. We went strawberry picking at Estelle's, walked in the Nature Preserve just up the road, saw the elk and spend a wonderful day at Mackinaw Island just to name a few attractions / activities in the area. Mr. Dove was easy to work with, quick with responses and tried to make sure our stay was pleasant.

Great place on the water!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (with 2 very young children) enjoyed this cottage. It was clean and all necessary supplies were available if you need anything. Steve, the owner, was also very responsive throughout the process. I'd recommend this place! Thanks Steve!
