Living on the lake, more like dreams come true!!

  • 5 of 5

Whitney and Joe were amazing! Wonderful host and very informative. The house had a very comfortable homey feel. The layout was very spacious for our family with room to spare. The view from the porch was absolutely breathtaking. My son enjoyed playing on the beach, collecting shells and jumping off the dock. It was very easy to entertain my 6 yo even being so far from home. There were some toys,cards and construction paper for when it was time to come in. We can't wait to return again next time. From all of us here in Michigan, you were the best host/hostess, the property was gorgeous and we had a fantastic time!

A very welcoming and lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cottage feel home. The white beach front and views were stunning. We enjoyed most of out time on the back porch watching the cotton candy colored sunsets. Whitney & Joe were accommodating such a pleasure. The home had just about everything you could think of. We had a family of 8 and it was plenty of room. we will miss the morning kayak strolls watching nature. We can't wait to come back and would HIGHLY recrommend to friends and famliy.

Great vacation spot for a family of 11!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire extended family recently stayed in this house, with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths and had plenty of room. The screened in porch is a great gathering place and the private beach with volleyball net was a hit for all ages. We enjoyed Gator Joe's and Eaton's Beach restaurants nearby on the water as well. The house was clean and the owners were great to work with! We will definitely return again! The lake is beautiful!

Perfect stay with GREAT views and a cozy feel!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 10 stay for a week and couldn't have asked for a better place. The owners Whitney and Joe were super friendly and accommodating. The home was very cozy and we loved the large kitchen. The back porch was our favorite spot to sit and eat. The white beach with lots of space, and very well kept. We loved taking our boat to Eaton's beach and Gator Joe's. We can't wait to come back again!!
