Great for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend and had the best time. The house was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and cute, and an easy walk into town. The weather was beautiful so we spent all day outside and in the lake. The kitchen is huge and accommodated all 7 of us girls perfectly. We ate at home the majority of the weekend using the grill and kitchen appliances. The town is V small and V quiet, but that could have been because of the holiday weekend. Everyone we came in contact with was v nice though. There is a small grocery store right outside of town, but try to go the Meijer or Walmart in Sturgis, much better selection. We would definitely come back and would recommend for any group of 20-somethings looking for a fun but relaxing weekend. Also, we loved Curlys and Palmer Lake Lodge where we rented a pontoon for a couple hours.

Made Magic Week even more magical!

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate, well appointed home on a beautiful, pristine lake! I spent every morning enjoying my coffee on the deck or at the boathouse table watching the sun rise over the quiet lake, with only ducks and fish jumping to break the stillness. There was the occasional clip-clop of the Amish carriages as they passed by, and a few hummingbirds enjoying the Rose of Sharon bushes in front of the deck, but otherwise, the world was still. In the dusk of the evening, we enjoyed the firepit and late evening boaters on the lake. A few afternoons, we joined those boaters with our little paddleboat or rowboat. We thought about renting a pontoon at the marina-- Not too expensive, but we just didn't need it!

We could walk from the home to all the Magic Week events at Abbot's or in the downtown area, and only needed to drive to the events at the schools. Friendly neighborhood with quiet streets. The grocery store is only about a mile away and is pretty well stocked. My only objection is that the restaurants are few, but M&M was a cute diner, and 5 Star pizza was pretty great. The new app gave me most of the info I needed, but I had a couple of questions when we arrived, and Tonya was very prompt at answering my texts. We've rented a lot of properties over the years, and a few we would return to. This one is a definite keeper!

Awesome clean wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from four days in this rental house and it was perfect. It was so clean and had everything you needed ( except there was no extra paper towels or toilet paper which was probably the fault of the cleaning people. The owners returned our messages promptly. I would definitely go back here again. We were here for my nephews wedding and my sister and brother stayed with us as well
