Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely perfect for our family vacation this year. We have two young kids and they enjoyed the beach and lake very much (we all did as well, of course). So many extras and such a friendly neighborhood. The owner and his family are awesome and we enjoyed getting to know them. Everything was clean, well maintained and so comfortable. Highly recommend this wonderful spot!

Great home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. My husband and I stayed with our two boys (3 years old and 1 year old) for a few days. The house and location were perfect for a quick getaway. The house was a short drive to downtown Grand Rapids, so during the morning we explored Grand Rapids (Frederick Meijer Garden, John Ball, Children's Museum - all great places for little kids). Then, in the afternoon, the boys would go in the backyard and play on the beach for several hours. The home had everything you would need for a comfortable stay and the owner was very responsive. His brother, who lives close, also brought over beautiful flowers. I would highly recommend this to anyone with kiddos and plan to come back next year!

Nice, spacious property

  • 5 of 5

I visited with 6 other guests the past weekend and had an excellent time. Despite the weather not cooperating, we had a chance to use the kayaks and paddle boats and enjoyed ourselves. We spent a lot of our time on the beach near the fire-pit. Both Brian and Dave were very helpful and responsive to any questions or issues we had. We spent a good deal of our time in Grand Rapids and had no trouble getting to and from Rockford.

We would definitely stay here again, hopefully with a little warmer weather!
