  • The whole clan

    "The location, yard, beach is amazing! we rented both house and cottage. Lake Huron is so clean and beautiful. Until we arrived were not aware there was no AC. The big house was manageable with the breeze off the lake. The cottage was almost unbearable despite the abundance of fans provided. Owner provides ample starter supplies, and kayaks, bikes etc. The tips about water shoes were much appreciated! And the ability to bring our dogs was a blessing. They had a great time! Cons to the site were the advertised wi-fi is not sufficient for online college classes, or work purposes. The lack of privacy in the cottage (the 2 bedrooms are connected with a door that has no knob and doesn't lock) bathroom with a shower so small that a petite female can barely move, and the lack of AC.The cottage floors were all cement which did work out well with not having to worry about wet sandy dogs. The cottage was more like glorified camping,, so disappointing due to the $ we paid. We did have a great week of good weather and family time."

  • This cabin is AWESOME! It's very rustic and absolutely darling!

    "We had an amazing time! The beautiful beach is just steps away and the cabin itself is adorable! We had everything we needed to be very comfortable during our 2 week stay. The owner has thought of everything! The neighbors are very friendly too. We really wanted to have a fire in the nice fire pit, but the weather was just a bit too warm. All in all, it was a wonderful experience, and we hope to go back soon!"

  • Charming historic cottage. This cottage and Jennifer have set the bar very high!

    "This is it! This is the spot! Beautiful and charming cottage. Jennifer made it super easy for us. Preparing us before we got there and letting us know what we would need and what to expect when we arrived. The communications with her were so easy that we had a great feeling before we got there. She let us know that she was just a phone call away if we needed anything during our stay. When you walk in the door you know you have made a great decision. The cottage is clean and decorated as an island cottage should be. Cute and cozy. The cottage is alot bigger than it looks from the photos. Also, very, very clean. I was amazed how a place as old as this could be so well maintained and so perfect. When we walked in to the upstairs bedroom, the sheen drapes were blowing in the wind, and looking out the windows, the river seemed so close. It was almost as if it was staged. We went right to the dock on the river and spent the time hanging out and jumping into the nice cool water. There is a ladder right on the seawall to make sure the exit from the channel is easy as can be. We spent nights grilling and hanging out by the two fire pits. The outdoor enclosed shower was a great surprise. Taking a nice cool shower outside after swimming and running around all day was a really cool experience. It also was great to sit on the dock and watch all the different boats cruising by. I feel like we found a true gem on the island. I am counting the days till we can come back and visit my family's new favorite place. Thank you Jennifer for maintaining that beautiful cottage as well as you have and for sharing it with our family."

  • Beautiful Fall Wedding

    "I'm not sure how to put into words how lucky I feel to have stumbled upon this beautiful property. This is the only venue we checked out, we didn't need to see anything else. My husband and I were married here on 9/26/15 and we spent the weekend here. Denise and her team are absolutely amazing. Denise was always quick to respond, incredibly personable, and never made me feel like a burden. Julie was incredibly attentive and made sure everything looked great every day. Julie met us at the castle when we went to check it out and between her and the setting we were blown away. Their helpers for the day of along with DJ Steve, Kurt, and Faulkner's Catering (what I saw as the Inner Circle team) all came together and helped us make the day better than I could have ever imagined. The home is beautiful inside and made a gorgeous backdrop for the rehearsal, rehearsal meal, getting ready the day of, and reflecting on the wedding on Sunday morning. I woke up Saturday morning with my team of girls and walked the property to 'visit' the horses up front and the goats and chickens and Mr. Pea in the back all while enjoying a hot cup of coffee. The pool was great and the hot tub was even better. I'm pretty sure we were up until 5am the night of the wedding just relaxing with drinks and the few leftover guests we allowed to stay and relax with us. Julie keeps it extremely clean and the temperature was perfect. She was a silent helper as we didn't even realize she was there to turn on the hot tub and turn it off. Denise, Julie, and their helpers were awesome at helping us set everything up on Saturday. I set up one table with a centerpiece and they put out the rest and it looked perfect. They made sure all candles and LED lights were lit once it started to get dark out and helped to clean them all up at the end of the night. They helped keep the day running smoothly and without a hitch! At least none that I was aware of. My guests were all impressed and in awe. The girls in the bridal party and the hairdressers loved the opportunity to stay in the castle and get ready there. We hate to admit that it's all over, and I think that's the reason for delay in my review. I hope we get the opportunity to return soon. I know some of my family is excited to return and spend some time there with us as well. The short of it? Fairy-tale setting, gorgeous photos, incredible atmosphere, amazing down to earth staff... 10/10 I'd do it all over again."
