The place is good for small families with grade school aged kids. This is a older cottage with antique furnishings. It reminds me of my grandparents bunk house, which was cool for me. There is not too much to it but, it is what we were looking for. We planned on being outside mostly and to just use it as a place to sleep and eat. There is a shower only, sink only, and no washer or dryer. It does have a full size fridge. The stove is electric and apartment sized. If you are looking to have a place with cable and high speed internet, this is not the place for you. Cell phone coverage is hit or miss. You can watch VHS tapes and DVDs on the tv provided.
The beach is about a 10 minute walk away. There are 4 chairs and a umbrella available to bring with you. Beach towels are not provided, so bring your own. The owner is receptive and easy to get in touch with...definitely would stay here again.
Cute and nostalgic
This property is cute and quaint. Very clean and welcoming overall. It is very small and just crosses rustic, so if you are seeking all the modern comforts this may not be the best choice. The local beach is washed out so you will need to travel 15 minutes or more to somewhere with access. There is a deck but there is frequent wasp/hornet traffic so we chose not to sit out there. The doors and windows have large gaps, and we did have to deal with a wasp inside each day. Other than that, no bug issues.
It is musty, but not overwhelming (I’m very sensitive to this) - however our weather was mild and not very humid. I also brought some damp-rid which did seem to help.
The a/c is a simple older unit in one window of the main room. We did not have to use it, so can’t speak on its effectiveness.
The kitchen provides all the necessities - small (not mini) fridge, small stove/oven, microwave, toaster, and coffee pot. Limited paper supplies and provided as well (paper towel, toilet paper, napkins, tissues). Plus utensils. I brought paper plates/bowls and that worked best for us.
The bathroom is modest - shower only. Towels and washcloths available. The water is well, and sewage septic. No issues with losing hot water.
Linens are provided on the bed - with extras available for the pull out. The tv in the bedroom turns on - but appears to work for vhs tapes only, but we didn’t try. We weren’t able to get anything more than snow static. WiFi is available but is slow and spotty - it does the job for email/social media checks. Was able to stream some music, but it cut out often. Some old games and interesting reading material are available for those interested.
I would say this property is best for outdoorsy types and those who seek an old timey vibe. The owner stopped over on day 1 and was very friendly and welcoming. She must live nearby because she was at/around the property daily.
Overall, it was a nice stay.
Small hot musty
It’s been one week and damage insurance has not been refunded
That doesn’t seem right does it?
The damage deposit comes directly from Home Away/VRBO, and takes about 2 weeks. The fee will be put back on the credit card you used when you reserve the cottage. I personally don’t have any thing to do with it.
Small, hot, NOT FOR SMALL CHILDREN
I encourage you to read through the reviews, as several of them had negative comments and still 4-5 stars. This place is TINY and very outdated. Not for small children at all. Extremely hot and uncomfortable. The small window AC unit was reading at 81-83 the entire first day and into the night. We took our two year old and 11 month old, whom slept in just a diaper and underwear and were still uncomfortable. Also, our last day and a half there we had NO hot water and we were told by the owner “these things happen”. I understand that may be true, but it should be fixed immediately and/or we should be compensated in some way. We tried contacting the owner a couple different times and did not receive responses until 12-24 hours after our first attempt. - When we were there, there was also no beach due to high water (which can’t be helped, of course!), but was definitely a big bummer. A little pricey for what you’re getting for sure!
Like a hug from your grandma
Cozy comfortable charming cottage. If you desire a simple, charming, wonky (doors and windows), yet quite comfortable little cottage to get away for a while, this is it. A little worn with many vintage touches makes it feel like a visit to grandma's house in the 1960s. I had everything I needed for a comfortable stay.
The Gingerbread Cottage está localizado em Glenn, Michigan - The Pancake Town! Glenn está situado no lago Michigan, entre Saugatuck, ao norte, e South Haven, ao sul. Glenn oferece uma loja de conveniência bem abastecida - eles também fazem uma pizza malvada - um bom restaurante e uma adorável loja de ferragens dos velhos tempos. Esta encantadora casa de lua de mel tem um baralho para saborear enquanto saboreia o vinho da vinha local. A casa fica atrás de uma estrada tranquila que é paralela ao belo Lago Michigan. Faça uma curta caminhada até a esquina e desça uma ladeira gramada para encontrar uma linda praia de areia. A área está repleta de oportunidades para antiguidades, passeios de barco, restaurantes finos, vitrines, estradas rurais pitorescas e mercados de agricultores que apresentam todos os produtos locais frescos. A 10 minutos de carro, você também pode saborear torta e sorvete no Earl's, Crane's Orchards ou no Dutch Farm Market, que apresenta o melhor donut caseiro que eu já provei.
Outras atividades: colheita de Berry, natação em água doce, passeios de barco, pesca, observação de estrelas, passeios pelas vinícolas, mercados de fazendeiros, passeios tranquilos pela praia, lojas de antiguidades, mercados de pulgas e pores do sol para morrer!
Golfe: Existem pelo menos 3 campos de golfe nas proximidades: Hawkshead, que tem um ótimo restaurante também - 10 minutos de carro. Ao norte, a 15 minutos de carro você chegará ao campo de golfe de Saugatuck e, ao sul, cerca de 15 minutos o levará ao campo de golfe público South Haven.
