  • Beautiful home and location - could use some TLC

    "The home is large and beautiful. The location is perfect and couldnt get any better. However, this is an older home and could use some TLC. Half of the lights did not work (were missing light bulbs or just didnt turn on). The windows do not open (missing actual handles). There was no exhaust fan on the stove. The furnace was not working in the lower level (it was very cold). There is well water (which should have been disclosed and would have been helpful to know up front - we made several trips to the store to buy bottled water). The house was "surface" clean, however the amount of dust and buildup was unbelievable. The vents were covered in dust and under the couches there was probably an inch of dust and dirt build up. After the first night, both me and my 9 month old got sick and were congested from all the dust. A nice deep cleaning of the home could remedy this. Also, there were several spider webs, dead flies, and other "gross" things by all the windows. This did not help with having young children who crawl on the floor. Also, if you have small children - bring 2 baby gates - will help block off the stairs! Just some feedback worth sharing. Maybe when the kids get older we would consider staying here again. You cant beat the location and views. So if you can handle the dust and "dated" nature of the home - this is a great house. A few things that could make this a 5...updated linens on all the beds, clean floors and windows, updated check in sheet (it was so dirty and grubby). Again, just a little TLC would go a long way! For $550 a night I would expect some nicer/cleaner things."

  • A little piece of joy

    "This is a sweet cabin in a perfect location. The cabin was immaculate, had a great layout, and included everything we needed. Lovely outdoor fire pit overlooking the lake. Perfect for quiet, restful nights. The cabin is extremely well situated; it's near a ton of hikes, a bike path, close to Empire and Glen Arbor, and the dunes. We also enjoyed all the historic architecture in the area and all the local food! We went in early June, as the lilacs were blooming and the air was infused with their scent—so lovely!"

  • Great lake house, great location, awesome owners

    "Nice house six feet from the shore. Beautiful views inside and out. Fully stocked and perfect lake house for us to have a great family vacation. lots of hours spent in lake and nearby sites at dunes, glen arbor and more. Owners were extremely nice and helpful. They were very proactive in setting up a dock ladder for our little kids and explaining everything. Highly recommended"

  • Perfect Location!

    "We stayed here August 13-20th. The home is just across from the Dune climb and we used the canoe and paddle boat often. We were 5 adults and 2 kids (4 and 7) staying at the house with multiple other family members staying in the area so we had wonderful large family dinners on the patio with an amazing view. The round patio table was a bit difficult to get in and out of sometimes. The house was not updated, but very clean and provided enough space for everyone (although we spent most of the time outdoors). We climbed the dunes a few times, toured the Pierce Stocking Drive and overlooks and floated the Platte River to Lake Michigan. We would highly recommend this home and had a wonderful time!"
