Pics don't do it justice - and the pics are great!

  • 5 of 5

This property is AMAZING. It's larger than the pics make it look due to higher ceilings. They have everything you might need, including children's dishes/cups/utensils. "We" consist of myself and husband, two kids ages 2 and 4, our nanny, and my teenage niece. We were very comfortable, plenty of space. Everything inside the house is great, but what really takes it to the next level is the deck and grill. We spent a lot of time out there, when we weren't at the beach.

We are booking for next year, this time for a full week. It was that good.

A Wonderful, Memorable Stay With My Large Growing Family Under One Roof!

  • 5 of 5

My family really had a very memorable getaway stay at this Beautiful home. It was well stocked with just about everything you forgot to bring and more! A very well taken care of home that we cherished and appreciated the owner (Cindy) allowing my family and I staying there for three nights. Cindy made us feel at home and was available if we needed her. Staying at her home with my three grown sons and their wives and three young grandchildren, along with my husband and I. We had more than enough room! The outside was just as nice, using the wonderful grill and fire pit. We walked to many shops and to the beach, where we built a hugh sandcastle and walked the pier. We had so many great memories under one roof, it was perfect!...Thank you so much Cindy!

We would love to return and would highly recommend it to a large family of any ages.

p.s.We loved the Sweet- Waters (a restaurant near by) pizza, best we ever had!

Beautiful house with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a mini reunion in this house with 6 adults, 7 kids, and a baby. We had a wonderful time- the house is very spacious and comfortable. Cindy, the owner, took great care to ensure that we were properly settled. She even brought over a blender upon request and was always available to answer any questions. She also provided extra baby supplies and beach toys for the kids, which was very appreciated. The house is also well stocked with DVDs, cards, and many games. It is also walking distance to the beaches and parks. You won't regret your stay here !

Large and magnificent home located in a quaint vacation village

  • 5 of 5

Once I decided to rent the vacation home in Lexington, Michigan, Cindy the manager went beyond my expectations to smooth the transaction process. My wife and I, together with two other couples, rented the home for a week. Space was never an issue for the six of us. The home was very large and impressive throughout. All our local visitors wanted to tour the home because of the reputation of its stately manner. Given its age, it was very well maintained. Cindy made certain we were comfortable and had everything we needed for our daily routines. I would recommend this home to any large group visiting this area of Michigan.

Great House!!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely use this home again for future trips to Lexington. It was amazing! With a large family and 8 grandkids it's hard to find a place big enough for our gang. Everyone loved the house and it had a wonderful charm about it. Cindy was great and very helpful. Plenty of necessities included in the house which is a great added extra. Highly recommend it!
