  • Peaceful Retreat

    "We had a lovely time at Carolyn's home. Especially enjoyed eating meals on the porch. The house was roomy for two. The traffic was busy on the weekend and evenings. Loved cooking with gas and the available herbs in the garden! Internet was slow and capped if you are attached to watching movies or need internet. No cell service so definitely an escape from the usual routine!"

  • Country Comfort with Modern Conveniences

    "We loved this vacation getaway. The gorgeous setting on Lake Michigan was beautiful and private. I grew up in metro Detroit, but had not visited this area in more than 40 years. Was not disappointed. Particularly pleased that-- beyond the country comfort, we had all of the modern conveniences-- including wireless internet. David and Kathryn could not have been more gracious. A great location for extended families. We waited more than a year for availability. It was worth it."

  • Beautiful home, short walk to beach

    "Wonderful, modern, spacious home that is so close to the shore you can hear the waves. Group of 12 had more than enough room. Plenty of appliances, tableware, silverware, etc. Large deck with great view of the beach. Great beach for walking. A little "stony" in the water so had to be careful walking into the water. Renters need to respect next group and clean feet before entering each time. Upon arrival, a little sandy on the floors and rugs, and a little dusty on lamps, tables and under furniture but that is beach life!"

  • 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 not...it 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!"
