Restful stay just steps from the beach
This two-bedroom cottage was ideal for our small family. Comfortable communal living space, fully equipped kitchen, all amenities provided. The exterior has recently been given an attractive facelift and the interior is clean and well cared-for. The owner was very conscientious and easy to work with on the details of our stay. We spent mornings and evenings on the deck overlooking Lake Michigan and afternoons on the community's private beach, less than a five minute walk down a well-maintained path just steps from the cottage. Perfect Lake Michigan getaway. We hope to come again!
A great lake Michigan experience.
We had a wonderful time in this lovely home. The surrounding area is an association and well taken care of beautiful HOMES on the lake. Pristine beach, but about 100 yds from the cottage as reported in the ad., and the deep sand makes this a workout for someone who has difficulty walking. Also there are many steps up to the living area in the cottage. The younger members of the family had no difficulty with trecking to the beach, or managing the steps, it was just me, the grandma.
The cottage is immaculate and full service from dishwasher to ice maker in the fridge. We spent most of our time on the broad, clean deck, overlooking the homes across the street and the family traffic on their way to the beach. While there are houses immediately in front of this cottage which are directly on the beach. we feel we had more than enough of a great view, we watched the sunsets every night. Everything in the listing was correct and appreciated.
This was a nice place and very clean and well maintained, but the description on this site was quite misleading. This property is not "beachfront" or "waterfront," since between this cottage and the beach are a road, another row of houses and 50' of grassy dunes. I don't mind the dunes, of course, but the other houses between this cottage and the beach definitely should preclude "beachfront" from being part of the description. The description also claims the front deck "overlooks the water" and this also is a stretch. Yes, there is a water view; however, one must look through the power lines and around the houses between this cottage and the beach in order to see it. Pricing would have been OK for true beachfront, but I thought it was little steep for its actual location.
On the positive side, the cottage was spotlessly clean and very well stocked, including things like paper towels, toilet paper, and laundry detergent. The beach is beautiful, and the whole area is secluded and quiet. The owner was prompt, friendly, and accommodating. Since there is no cleaning fee charged, renters are expected to thoroughly clean before they leave, which is not a problem for us, but others might dislike this policy. Families should be aware that the only bed for mom and dad is a fold-out couch in the living room, unless you want to do as we did and push the twin beds together in the front bedroom. Again, not a big problem for us but something for families with kids to consider.
