Fantastic home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This Onekama cottage is the best we have rented in the area. Me. Boyd is so easy to work with and made sure we were informed. He is prompt to answer questions that arose. The kitchen was stocked for vacation needs and the home was clean. The master bed mattresss was uncomfortable for us, but bearable for the week. There is a nice selection of movies and games for evenings or rainy days.

Perfect getaway house.

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely. Spotless clean, great location. The kitchen is filled with all of the necessities the you will need. We had 5 adults and having 2 full baths and 1 1/2 bath was perfect. It is close to many attractions. My son and daughter-in-law went charter fishing for the day. We rented a pontoon for another day. And the sunsets at Portage Point and breathtaking. I would definitely rent this home again.

Nice cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very clean and decorated very nicely. There were 4 adults and a baby staying for the week (2 others had to miss it due to unforeseen circumstances) and there would have been plenty of room for all of us. Really enjoyed the bird feeders and the parade of birds and wildlife--we were even visited by a doe and her fawn. We enjoyed looking through the notebooks and seeing the changes that have taken place over the years. We enjoyed our time in Onekama and the various things to see and do in the surrounding area. We would recommend a visit to this cozy cottage and friendly area. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us!!

Delightful Cottage.

  • 4 of 5

This is a delightful home. Nicely decorated, comfortable furniture, well-equipped and good sized kitchen. Garage has beach chairs, air mattresses, and coolers, etc. There are 2.5 baths and 3 bedrooms. It has a nice sitting room just off the kitchen where you can enjoy your morning coffee and watch the birds on the bird feeder or just outside on a small patio. The front and side covered porches are delightful with comfortable wicker furniture. There is large living room and dining room across the front of the house. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer. The home has a heat pump. They have tons of games and books. The home is well cared for and in good repair. The back yard is fenced and there is a little water feature as well. Even a couple trees where I could hang my hammock. I liked the combo lock on the doors, no worries about losing the key. The home is located one block off the main drag, behind Shirley's Restaurant. Noise really was no problem.

Areas for improvement:

The stove is not level, the bed in the master was firm, but slumps in the middle, if more than one person sleeps on the mattress (it may be just me, I have been called a circus creature). My wife had no problem with the bed.There was only one extra roll of TP.

Would I rent this property again? definitely. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the bed in the master.

Comfortable historical home close to all sorts of family adventures

  • 5 of 5

Home is a beautifully cared for historical home located in Onekama Village. Restaurants shops and portage lake park and beach are within walking distance. Beautiful Public Lake Michigan access 5 minute drive away. Casino 10 minutes away, meijer's only 15. Not Tom mention shirt travel times to Manistee, Arcadia, Frankfort, Beulah, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Glen Arbor. House was perfect for our family with space for everyone to be themselves. Very responsive owners. Hope to return again!
