  • Tranquil, serene, beautiful, quiet, private, easy.

    "Thistledew is a charm. First of all, it isn't often that you find a place that welcomes your four footed family members, and even has treats in a jar on the counter for them! Our two greyhounds had a lovely week, taking long walks on the beach, wading in the surf, and sleeping in the grass. There are enough sleeping spots for many two footed family members in this lovely old house, with interesting nooks and crannies, all lovingly decorated from times long ago. I especially love the upstairs, with a special area that welcomes young readers. I wish I were young again, to sit down and pull out the interesting books and read in the warm, lovely sitting area. The view from inside and outside Thistledew is stunning. You can watch the sun set from the dining table, the couch, the front yard, or you can stroll down the road just a short way and down to the private beach and sit back comfortably in a chair in the pergola, start a nice bonfire, and watch the sunset from there. The waves roll in, the friendly neighbors may stroll by and you can chat or is lovely. Now that we have found this gem, we will be back! It is a low-key hide-away. Don't expect to spend your day on your computer or watch tv. This is a place for serious relaxation and time away from your work life. Cell phone signals are spotty and wi-fi is only available from the front yard of the owners (who were away when we stayed but are very friendly and welcoming and invite you to sit in their yard for the wi-fi if you want it). I shunned the wi-fi but my husband couldn't stay away. I recommend staying away and enjoying your time away from the electronic world. Groceries are a short drive away and there is a complete and great kitchen for cooking (and grilling outside). We highly recommend Thistledew!"

  • Everything we'd hoped for and more.

    "We could not have enjoyed our 6-day stay more. The studio was clean, comfortable, and very thoughtfully decorated. Having the bed rolled away into the wall made it seem even more spacious. Everything we needed was provided, and we enjoyed being able to grill three nights. We loved being close to both lakes. And LuAnn and Sig could not have been better hosts. (A big thank you to them!) We would stay here again in a heartbeat."

  • Lovely sunsets, clear waters, comfortable house

    "We had a great vacation. The house is very clean and comfortable. The beach, dock, and lake are great fun. The location is good and Lake Michigan is a short drive away. I would be very surprised to see anything negative posted here. Thanks for sharing your vacation home Chuck & Lori!"
