"We rented Pago for one week August 20-27. What a charming property! Ron and Andi are absolutely wonderful to work with. Pago, conveniently located, we were never without something to do or see. The house sits on a hill with just a few steps down to a wonderful sandy beach. On the first level, the house has beautiful (well varnished) hardwood floors and an amazing stone fireplace. We immediately fell in love when we opened the door and immediately saw nothing but beautiful blue waters of Lake Michigan! The screened in porch is beyond the large picture windows that line the whole wall of the living and dining room. The lower level is just as charming with tiled floors and fireplace. We had a fire the first night we arrived since it was quite chilly, and it was GREAT! The fire pit on the beach is perfectly located. Our mornings started out slow every day with a walk on the beach south, which is Conservancy property. Very private! Every day we enjoyed walking out to the point (to the south) to collect rocks. Crepe's at the Good Hart camping trailer are a MUST! Dinner at Leg's Inn in Cross Village is a MUST. Breakfast at the Old World Cafe is an ABSOLUTE MUST!!! The decor, service, and food are outstanding at Old World Cafe. We hope they offer a dinner service by next year. Daily visits to the local artist sanctuary in Cross Village is a TOTAL MUST!!! Three Pines Studio is AMAZING!!! You can buy art, look at art, or make art. Maddie is a textile painter and very informative. The owner, Gene, is a wealth of knowledge, and an amazing potter. The General Store-Marathon station in Cross Village is a good place to go for beverages, snacks, and some deli foods. The Curio shop across from Leg's Inn was a real treat because it has unique items from around the world. Very nice european toys for children. Pago is absolutely perfect in every way. I cannot think of one negative. The location is perfect, right off the Tunnel of Trees. The driveway is long, so you don't see the house from the road. If I had to make one request it is for a King size bed in the main floor bedroom, but the Queen size bed is certainly very comfortable. The furniture is all very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with nice dishes, pots, pans, pitchers, etc...
We plan to return every year Ron and Andi will have us.
Our son age 8 said, "I just want to sit here and think about this moment, because I love it here."
PAGO IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Thank you, Ron and Andi"
