A really nice place, well maintained

  • 5 of 5

This is the second September our girls getaway group chose to stay at the Cottages and we were not disappointed. The view from the bluff is terrific and even though it was a little chilly for the beach we enjoyed a quiet and sunny morning at the shoreline. Having beach chairs provided for us at the bottom of the long stairwell is a plus, so we don't have to climb up and down to the beach with extra equipment. The cottage itself was very clean and well maintained, with everything--from the shower to the microwave--in good working order.

We keep finding more wonderful things to see and do around Harbor Country and really like using this vacation spot as our base camp. And oh yes, the owners are really nice too. Very good people to rent from.

Beautiful piece of property right on Lake MI, the view was terrific! It is a wonderful place for families. The cabins were rustic but clean and the owners were wonderful, so accommodating! We would return again. Much nicer than our next stop.

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed in the house for a girls weekend, there were 6 of us. We had a great time, it was clean, comfortable and the owners were very nice. There are alot of stairs to the beach, but the walk is BEAUTIFUL and it had stone seats about every 30 steps or so, 2 of us have mobility issues and we didn't have an issue with the steps as long as we took a break on the stone seats ! We are looking forward to booking this again for October 2014 !

Great Place, Beautiful Scenery, Friendly Owners

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with this rental. We wanted somewhere with outside space for our kids and easy access to the beach. The owner was very accomoding/flexible in working with us to find dates that work. Our boys loved having a bonfire every night we were there and we found several restaurants/activities in the area we liked. A little challenging to not have a washer/dryer near the beach, but if you are looking for somewhere to relax and have easy access to the outdoors this place is worth it. steps downto the beach are consistent with the area. This was not as much of a challenge as I thought it would be, even carrying kids, because there are toys at beach level. It is a pretty basic set up, which was fine for us. The pictures and descriptions are accurate.

My family of 5 stayed for 3 nights while in town for a wedding. We had a two bedroom cottage and while it was a little difficult only having one bathroom, we managed just fine. The cottage was equipped with all that was needed. There were plenty of items for the kids (and adults) to use at the beach and we really enjoyed making a pit fire on the beach on a cool evening. Carol, Paul, and their daughter were very hospitable. I counted 112 steps down the beach (I could be off a few) but it feels like you a walking through an enchanted forest. Bring plenty of towels with you because being that close to the lake, everything stays really wet. I can't wait to return next year...

This the 4th time my husband and I have stayed here. The beach is a private beach, which is wonderful, clean and the water is great. The propety is huge and the owners are awesome, Carol and Paul go out of there way to make sure everything is taken care of on the grounds. They even provide beach chairs, beach toys for the kids and sun unbrellas, so no need to pack all that extra stuff. The cabins are kind of old school (with A/C) but that's what we like, and the cost is excellent. We are definitely going back year after year!
