Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I stayed for a week and had a great time. There was so much to do. Fishing, kayaking playing in the sand, taking the row boat out and not to mention the fishing gear, life jackets, games and movies they so graciously provided. The view of the lake from all the rooms were amazing. Evenings around the firepit with the breeze off the lake were so nice. I didn't want it to end. We were just minutes away from Spicers Orchard which we all enjoyed and took in the Rennaissance Festival. All in all Mary and her family were wonderful opening up thier home to us and we all had a wonderful time!

Scenic and Secluded, Hidden off the winding dirt country Roads

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Keyes cottage in Holly and had a wonderful time. It is so scenic and secluded, hidden off winding dirt country roads, yet still close enough to town to go out for day trips and find neat things to do. The kids loved the boating and the sandy beach area in front was also a plus. Overall, it was a wonderful and seamless vacation. We will definitely come back! Thanks so much to the Keyes family :)

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

The Keyes Lake cottage was perfect for us! It's cute and quaint but is so comfortable for a family of 6. The owners were so friendly and answered all of our questions. We can't wait to come back in the summer to go out on the lake!

Peaceful, remote, and charming

  • 5 of 5

Would certainly return, a perfectly apporationed cabin on nice size lake. Feels like your deep in the woods, yet close enough to the greater Detroit area if needed.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time at the cottage. We only stayed two nights, but it had everything we needed for a weekend getaway. Mary was very friendly and helpful with recommending places to go around the area. The cottage has a beautiful view of the lake and chairs at the end of the dock to relax and take in the view. We used the canoe to explore the entire lake. We also grilled out one night and had a great dinner on the back deck. The only negative was that the cable was a little spotty, but we weren't watching too much TV and were mostly outside or exploring the surrounding areas so it was not a big deal. The cottage also has AppleTV which we utilized to watch a movie one night. We enjoyed our stay at the cottage and would definitely recommend it to others!

Owner's Response: I am so happy you were able to celebrate your first anniversary at our cottage. We would love to have you back. Sorry the antenna was spotty, we only use it for local channels. Our family mainly use Netflix too! Cheers to many years together. We just celebrated our 16th anniversary.

Relaxing Vacation on Lovely Lake

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at Tipsico Lake. We enjoyed using the kayaks. Although use of rowboat and trolling motor was advertised, we found that rowboat was inaccessible with owners and neighbors pontoon boats parked. We kept missing to move the boat when neighbor had their boat out.

We enjoyed the area and the lake home. It was a nice size and very quiet lake. We spent most of time on deck, dock, and by fire pit.

Even though lake house is close to "civilization", we really only left twice....once to buy groceries and once to go to church! We enjoyed just hanging out at the lake most of all. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Linda, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. So sorry our families boat was in the way. We changed the location of the row boat so this doesn't happen in the future. Thanks for your input. Looking forward to your next visit with us at the cottage.
