Fabulous Lake house!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house, so well appointed with new furniture, comfy beds, nice towels and bedding. The location was wonderful, just a short walk or golf cart ride to the beach. We love this area of Michigan, we will for sure be back!

Loved it, great for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Spend 3 night July 20 to Jul 23, 2017 for our family vacation, had family in from Colorado. Place was prefect for all eight of us. We loved the dinning room table especially, lots of euchre and a dice game called center, left and right which was prefect for the eight of us.

Thank you so much, hope to be back soon.

The house is very nice but it is NOT on a private beach & doesn't really have a lake view

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here (family of 6) over the 4th of July 2017. We thought we rented a house on the beach where you could walk out the door right onto the sand. We didn't realize until about 2 days before our arrival, when we acquired the actual address from the owner, that we were going to be in the middle of a bunch of other homes. The biggest disappointment was that there was a house directly in front of us blocking our view of the lake. Also, there is no direct beach access. This is important to know. It is NOT on a private beach like it states in the description. The ONLY beach access is a 10 min walk or short ride in the golf cart down to the end of the street. From there you have to take about 30 stairs down to the beach which is SUPER small and shared by all the people in the community. On the 4th of July there were about 50 people sitting on top of one another on that sliver of beach. This was disappointing because my 70 year old mother-in-law who has knee problems, was unable to join us on the beach because of the stairway. The Silver Lake sand dunes are directly behind the house so you do hear the roar of the dune buggies all day into the night. Other than that, the house really does have everything you need. Towels, chairs, fire pit, dishes, games. No central air but 2 out of the 3 bedrooms have window A/C units. The decor in the home is beautiful. Lastly, we would recommend that the house be sprayed for bugs. We understand that it is a house by the lake so there will be flies, spiders, mosquitoes but we saw more bugs on this trip than we did in the Dominican Republic.

Perfect for a romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house, just the two of us, for 3 nights and it was perfect. Open floor plan, beautiful furnishings, and an amazing deck. And just a quick golf cart ride to the beach. We got engaged here so it will always be special to us. Thanks Kevin for an amazing spot! We will be coming back!

Very clean. Nice evening views.

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the beach house. The house had everything we needed. The house was very clean and the deck was wonderful to sit and enjoy our family. The golf cart was a must to get our gear to the beach. The private beach was nice but not very big. I am aware they don't mow to keep the sand from blowing but the grass was really high all around the house. The owner was great to work with and answered our questions quickly. The house was overall great and I am looking forward to future stays!
