Great place to stay!
The cottage was nice and clean, completely turn key, I would stay here again.
Chuck's home is absolutely beautiful, and the perfect vacation spot!
Perfect place to stay in both winter and summer time. Being right on the lake brought a wonderful experience and charm to our vacation. Everything was provided and we had an incredible time here.
Beautiful, semi-secluded property overlooking a small lake. The highlight of my vacation was reading on the deck while watching the summer sunset. House is comfortable and cozy. Only downside is the single bathroom downstairs (so if you're sleeping upstairs in the loft, you have to make a little trip to go in the night), but this isn't major. House is within walking distance from a few small taverns/restaurants. Bikes and kayaks included with the house. Would definitely stay again -- I suspect the fall colors would be astounding!
Beautiful house on a beautiful lake!
The good: the house is spacious and beautiful. The lake is amazing with very little boat traffic. The upstairs loft is huge, with 6 beds (a king, a double and 4 singles.) The kitchen has a nice island and huge table. The views are awesome from either inside the house or outside on the deck. I thought the price for this property was very reasonable. There were kayaks and a canoe for the lake. A fire pit down by the lake.
The bad: This house does not have a washer and dryer even though it says it has full laundry facilities on the first floor. This was a problem because while they had plenty of towels they did not have enough wash clothes and we had to go buy some cheap ones in Marquette. There is nowhere to put anything in this house. No closet or dresser space was available, we had to live out of suitcases, which for three days was OK. I would not want to do that if I was staying a week. The kitchen was cluttered with nowhere to put any food, except the fridge which was empty. The one bathroom is nice, however it is directly off the downstairs bedroom, so there is no privacy. Another half bath in this house would make a big difference.
Overall we were very happy with the house despite some of the issues I mentioned above.
please feel free to contact me about any question about things to see and do.
We reserve the right to charge additional for guests in excess of the number booked in the original reservation.
