This weekend was a great getaway for our family’s yearly retreat before Nana & Papa go winter in Arizona. Nice views of Lake Huron with great evening sunsets.
Thank you so much for the review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Come visit us again!!
So far the best
It has been a long tradition of our group of friends (8 adults) to spend a Labor Day weekend on Lake Huron. There were places we liked, some more, some less, but the Sunset Beach Cottages is a big winner. Everything was perfect and we are already planning to return next year.
Had a Great Time!
Great location and easy to get to. Property sleeps 12 so it was very comfortable for the 8 of us. Great back yard with access to the beach, fire pit, and decks. It certainly didn't hurt that we had beautiful warm days and cool nights so we were able to enjoy the many activities available in the area. Only very minor glitch was that the requested king sized sheets were not provided but we were able to make it work with a queen flat and standard pillow cases. No sleep was lost and with so many other things to keep us occupied, we totally forgot to mention it to our hosts! We will definitely recommend this property and hope to be back ourselves.
Thank you so much for the great review! I am so sorry I forgot the sheets!! I wish you had said something but I am glad you had a great time! Please come again!!
It could have been cleaner. Stove was dirty and didn’t work well. They need to tell people to bring bedding and towels. Never had to do this at other places and spent $90 at Walmart on these items. Also we were told there were two parking spaces and there was only one. Mattresses were very hard and uncomfortable.
Thank you for your review. We are sorry about your misunderstanding about what to bring as far as sheets pillow cases and towels. It is clearly stated on vrbo what you are to supply and bed sizes. If you had contacted us we would have supplied them for you as we keep clean linens and towels for airline travelers. We try very hard to ensure all our guests have what they need for a relaxing vacation. We are on the property every day checking in with guests to fix things get light bulbs batteries directions to activities restaurants and assure everyone many times to call or text if they need anything. Again we are sorry for the lack of communication to the make your stay the best.
