This was perfect for our visit. Our son lives in Brighton and we needed some extra sleeping room for a family Christmas. The beds were comfortable and it is a beautiful location.
This is a cute cottage. We mainly used this place to sleep at night since our larger Thanksgiving gathering with family was elsewhere, so we did not take advantage of the entire property. We did walk down to the lake and were surprised to see how clear and sandy bottom it appeared. Bill was quick to respond on Thanksgiving Day with more washcloths. Cleaning crew could do better under beds, dressers. I cleared some cobwebs over the sink, in corners. Exterior windows could be cleaned, especially in the kitchen over the sink, but we counted it to off-season fall/winter weather. Overall, we were comfortable with our stay.
Perfect for our purposes.
The house is well appointed, in a nice neighborhood, and relatively easy access to main roads. We were pleasantly surprised by the fact that there was one more bedroom and one more full bath than advertised!! We have nothing but positive to report about this transaction. It all went off as scripted!
Our stay was perfect...we found nothing that we would change!!!
Relaxing lakeside cottage -- perfect for weekend getaway!
Needed a girls weekend, and wanted a relaxing place to getaway. This cute cottage fit the bill perfectly. Plenty of space for curling up on comfy couches inside, or hanging out on the deck-with-a-lakeview outside! Beds upstairs were comfy -- the 3rd bedroom is downstairs and we didn't use that one. It's a perfect 2 mile walk around the lake for a little exercise and we brought our own kayaks for a paddle. The neighborhood is quiet, and we enjoyed a fire in the firepit in the evening (bring your own wood). We never got in our cars once we arrived, which is exactly what we wanted! Sunsets were spectacular! We'd return!!!
Brighton, MI Stay on the lake
Over all we enjoyed our stay in the cottage at Brighton, MI. The location was great and we were able to make our stay comfortable. We were disappointed with cleanliness of the cottage. The cottage needed a good cleaning along with the appliances (coffee pot, microwave, oven, toaster oven, etc). The outside of the house was covered with spiders and cobwebs. Had to hunt for a broom to us to clean the spiders and cobwebs from the outside and inside of the house. On the inside, the baseboards were dusty, dead bugs on window sills. Bed sheets on main floor bedrooms were not clean. Washed both bedroom sheets and was able to use on one set of sheets. Bought a set a sheets for the master bed. There were not enough bathroom towels and wash cloths. We bought extra towels and wash cloths to use while we were there. The garage was a mess. One morning with out warning, plumbers showed up to fix a broken drain line that we were not aware of. With a little TLC this cottage would be a wonderful place. Over all we did enjoy our stay at the cottage and visiting with family and friends that we haven't seen for years.
Thank you for your input! I am sorry to hear that you were concerned about things at the house. I wish that you had called or emailed me regarding your concerns. My summer home is three doors away and I would have addressed all of your concerns if I had just known about them. We try to make all of our guests stays as enjoyable as possible. As far as the plumbers, I had learned of a possible plumbing leak that would have effected your stay, so I had it addressed so as to not effect your stay. I am glad to hear that you were able to enjoy your visit with family and friends.
