Wonderful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this vacation home to anyone who is looking for a beautiful getaway. The house was clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well-stocked. The beach was clean and we found lots of sea glass. We enjoyed the water, the sunsets and at night the breathtaking view of the stars and Milky Way.

At night we left the windows open and you could hear a pin drop, it was so quiet.

Everything is as the owner says.

My family and I had a wonderful stay. We hope to come back next summer.

Amazing Lake Michigan Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week my family and I just spent at this amazing Lake Michigan cottage. The cottage was modern, very clean and well equipped. The kitchen was spacious and had all modern kitchen appliances and abundance of cooking supplies and utensils. Living room was very comfortable with TV, satellite dish and DVD player. The yard was very expansive, plenty of room for a volleyball net and tons of trees for hammocking. One of the most amazing part of this cottage was the unbelievable view and access to Lake Michigan. Very private sandy beach, great fire pit near the beach and a great deck for tanning or watching the sunset. We enjoyed 7 wonderful nights watching the spectacular sunset on Lake Michigan. Owners were very quick at responding to questions and great to work with. We will definitely be returning to this wonderful, amazing Lake Michigan cottage.

Wonderful place in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Place was very clean and was a great place to access the attached beach, local town, and all the sights of Northwest Michigan. My daughter who recently went to Florida shared the first time she saw the beach, "This is better then Florida". The cool nights with the fire pit on the beach, the house which everything worked, no suprises. It was a great vacation spot, and would highly recommend it!

Low traffic beach, charming cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This get-away in Manistee brings the best of both worlds - a cabin in the woods and a beach with very few visitors! The kitchen here is large & nicely updated, all bedrooms are decorated well and have the MOST comfortable beds. We loved the location being just a 5-10 minute drive to downtown area, grocery stores, public beach & parks, and other attractions. The deck at the base of the stairs affords gorgeous sunset views and the fire pit was nice for roasting marshmallows. Owner was great in communications during booking & before/after our stay. One note: please watch owner's video of the stairs leading to the beach - they are quite narrow and were tiring on upward travels loaded with beach paraphernalia - so, they would not be suitable for all visitors. (After viewing the path, we knew we were going to be toning our legs during our week-long stay & we surely did! :) Had a great summer vacation here and would definitely rent again!
