Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lake house for an extended family vacation for 18 people (10 adults and 8 kids under 10 yrs old). The house is immaculate and beautifully designed. For having such a large group, we never felt cramped. There was plenty of space for everyone, even when stuck inside on a couple rainy days.

The beach was beautiful with powdery white sand. It is a hike down to the beach using the stairs, especially when carrying babies/toddlers. However, I think we can all thank them for our newly formed leg muscles!

The house is in a great location. We made a few day trips from the house during our stay, all within a 45 minute drive or less. We definitely hope to return some day soon!

Family trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the cottage with our families! The cottage was absolutely beautiful, and the beach was amazing as well. We had 18 guests (including ourselves) stay for our wedding held in Grand Haven. Between spending time on the beach, grilling out, campires, and a wedding - there was plenty to keep us busy, but also plenty of relaxing. We even took advantage of the ranch closeby and went horseback riding with the entire group.

The owners made the entire rental process extremely easy, and had everything laid out clearly for us, not too mention they were very friendly and easy to work with.

Thanks for a perfect week; we appreciate everything! We hope to make it back someday!
