Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week spent with family at this beautiful log home. Pictures don’t do this home

justice, this log home is so spacious, modern and rustic at the same time. Enjoy the grand fire

place inside or the hot tub with wooded privacy, outside. It was such a relaxing and comfortable

experience. Sitting on the sundeck enjoying nature is just one of the hilights of this property.

Sunsets across Lake Michigan were just incredible. The local restaurants in South Haven were

delicious and had beautiful views in every direction. The shopping was just charming and just

minutes away down Blue Star Highway which reminds of the great nights spent with the family

under the stars. The state park was very impressive along with all the beaches in the area. I

was thinking of returning one year for Christmas, it would be storybook perfect. I highly

recommend this gorgeous log home anytime of the year, i know my family and i cannot wait for

another visit.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a long weekend at this lovely log home, this past summer. The log home is very comfortable, convenience and close to everything. There is all kinds of shopping, the beach and attractions. We loved the log home. Our children visited and this gorgeous home had everything we needed. We always felt safe and comfortable. Morning coffee was a joy on the porch watching the wildlife and the sun coming up. It definitely was our most relaxing vacation away from the busy city and crowded streets & traffic. Most definitely highly recommend this log home to all.

Awful rental

  • 1 of 5

DO NOT RENT FROM THIS OWNER!

I was greatly looking forward to this stay and I was very disappointed with my stay. I spent the whole weekend recording everything that was damaged and broken in the house. We left the house cleaner than when we got there.

Dirty sheets

Dusty furniture

Stained/molding carpets

Broken light fixtures

Fly infestation And more

It took multiple contacts and reports to get my deposit back

Terrible business owner, thief, and liar

  • 1 of 5

My stay included around 18 guests. After our stay ended we received a letter stating that we were going to receive NONE of our deposit back due to EXTREME DAMAGES. Our group went to the Store down the road the day before we left and personally bought cleaning supplies to clean the house before our departure. The house was left in mint condition with nothing broken and everything clean. 20 days after our departure we received a disk that was supposed to have pictures of all of the items we broke, however the disk was shattered into pieces and the homeowners wouldn't send us another. It wasn't clear at the time of renting that these people were thieves, but after our stay it is clear they will take every possible step they can to take every penny of yours. They charged us for things that were already broken upon our arrival despite us having pictures from when we arrived to prove differently. They charged us for things such as "watermelon in the backyard", "trash in a ditch", "footprints on the wall", ect. The list of false accusations goes on. I am certain that the homeowners will respond with a message such as "these renters were the worst we've ever seen" because that's their game. We read bad reviews before our trip but didn't believe they were true. We treated the house with respect and the owners with respect and they manipulated us and took all of our money. As tempting as it is to rent it and assume I'm lying or wrong, I encourage anybody and everybody to read not only my review, but the 10-20 more that will come from our other guests. These homeowners are liars and thieves and they will do take your money.

IN ADDITION THEY OFFERED US A SMALL PORTION OF OUR DEPOSIT BACK IF WE WROTE 5 STAR REVIEWS FOR THEM. This shows how they take people's money and is the sole reason why there is any positive reviews on this page. I highly HIGHLY recommend you read my review and the others that will inevitably appear, and DO NOT STAY AT THE LOG HOME, because this is all true, and they will do it to you.

Owner's Response: IMMEDIATELY ANY ADULT READER OF THIS REVIEW CAN EASILY DETECT THAT THIS IS A DISTRAUGHT YOUTH, WHO MISREPRESENTED THEIR GROUP AND TOOK ADVANTAGE OF OUR HOME. THEY NEVER TOLD US THAT IT WAS A GROUP OF KIDS LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO HIDE FROM MOM AND DAD TO USE OUR HOME OF A PLACE FOR “HOOKING UP” AND PARTYING. THE CONTRACTED CLEANING SERVICE QUIT AND WILL NEVER WORK FOR US AGAIN. THEY FINED US FOR THE UNBELIEVABLE DESTRUCTION OF OUR PERSONAL HOME AND THE UNSANITARY CONDITIONS THEY WERE SUBJECTED TOO FROM THESE RENTERS. WE HIRE ALL THE SERVICES BY PROFESSIONAL TEAMS (CLEANING, MAINTENANCE AND SECURITY) AND THEY SUBMIT REPORTS ON EACH RENTER. WE HAVE DONE VACATION RENTALS FOR 19 YEARS AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE HAVE HAD REPORTS FROM EACH GROUP THAT WERE SO HORRIFIC THAT THE CONTRACTED SERVICES WANTED TO QUIT. THE SECURITY TEAM TAKES DETAIL PICTURES AND VIDEOS OF THE PROPERTY AND ALL ASSETS BEFORE AND AFTER EACH RENTAL. THESE PICTURES WERE SENT TO THE RENTERS AND THE DAMAGES WOULD NOT BE DENIED BY AN OLDER MORE RESPONSIBLE GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS. WE HAVE RENTED TO YOUTH IN THE PAST AND FOUND THEM TO BE VERY CONSCIENTIOUS AND CURIOSITY TO OUR HOME & PROPERTY. THIS GROUP DIDN’T INFORM US THAT IT WAS A GROUP OF YOUTH TO USE OUR HOME LIKE THE BACK SEAT OF CAR, AWAY FROM THEIR PARENTS WATCHFUL EYE. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS GROUP HAS RUIN FUTURE RENTAL FOR OTHER YOUTH GROUPS, AS THEY SAY “ONE BAD APPLE SPOILS THE BUSHEL”. THE CLEANING COMPANY WANTS TO INITIATE FURTHER ACTIONS FOR THE UNHEALTHY AND UNSANITARY ACTIONS TAKEN BY THIS GROUP, WITH MULTIPLE CONDOMS THROWN ACROSS THE ROOM, POTENTIALLY SPREADING LIFE THREATENING HUMAN DISEASE THAT ARE TRANSMITTED THROUGH BODILY FLUIDS. THIS YOUTH CLIMB UP AND ONTO THE PURLIN (LARGE LOG CROSS BEAM) 20-30 FEET ABOVE THE MAIN ROOM AND PUT A CHAIR UP THERE TO SIT AND THEM PUT FOOT PRINT ON THE CEILING TO GIVE THE READER A PERSPECTIVE OF THE MINDSET OF THESE IRRESPONSIBLE INTOXICATED YOUTH. THE HOLES IN THE WALLS, THE HOT TUB PANELS RIPPED OUT, PLASTIC ON THE TANNING BED SMASHED INTO PLASTIC BITS, PEDAL CART SHREDDED, $20,000 ART WORK ON THE WALL DESTROYED ARE ONLY MONETARY ISSUES THAT CAN BE FIXED OR REPLACED BUT EXPOSING THE STAFF TO UNSANITARY BIO-HAZARD AND POTENTIALLY LIFE THREATENING CONDITIONS AND JEOPARDIZING OTHER LIVES IS UNACCEPTABLE.

First VRBO disappointment

  • 1 of 5

This review is for the Log House.

Recently spent 2 nights here on a 12 member annual golf outing. The house appeared fine, but the first thing we noticed was the condition of the back yard. Bicycles, furniture and other items generally misplaced all around the grounds.

Entering we noticed that the master bedroom toilet was running non stop. Our efforts (2 mechanical engineers involved) failed. All call was placed, but no attempt was made to repair 1 of the 3 toilets during our short stay. Not until later that day did we discover that there was only 1 roll of toilet paper in one of the bathrooms. Then we discovered that there were not enough towels available (3 to 4) and they were as hard as sandpaper. Since we assumed these towels were used for cleaning purposes we purchased our own towel from the local Meijer store. The basement in which were several of the beds smelt like wet dog, and had miscellaneous video games strewn about. The best was the tanning bed! Really a tanning bed in the middle of the walkway??? This place could be nice, but is clearly in need a property manager and grounds keeper to get this disorganized mess together. Would never consider it again.
