  • Wonderful farmhouse for a retreat!

    "Our group of 11 stayed at Orchard Beach Farmhouse for a writers' retreat and it was perfect. The living space is huge with enough seating for everyone, plus there were several other little nooks inside and out where groups could split off for quiet time or for smaller conversations. We loved all of the fabulous decorations, and I'd like to get my own bowling alley counter tops :). The house was close to activities for those of us who wanted to go wine tasting, horseback riding, or walk to the beach. And we enjoyed the outdoor space to view the lunar eclipse/supermoon (if only it hadn't been so cloudy!). Thanks for a lovely place to stay!"

  • Another great vacation at the Franklin House.

    "My friend and I discovered the Franklin House in Grand Haven in 2007 and have been returning since then as much as possible. This year I reserved the back unit for three weeks to celebrate my 80th birthday. I had many family visitors and friends join me. My niece and her husband from Orlando, Fl and my nephew and his wife from Jacksonville, Fl. came for the last week and occupied the front unit. We love that we can walk to downtown, restaurants and the channel. We all had a great time and hopefully we can return next year. Thanks, Tina and Paul."

  • Great location!

    "On the day my family arrived the waves of the lake were high. We were concerned because this made the private beach area (the main reason we booked the Loft) smaller than we had expected based on the photo. We also had a couple of minor concerns with the loft. The owner met us, discussed our concerns, and did everything to make sure we were happy. Just as he assured us, the next day the water was calm, the beach was perfect, and we had a great time the rest of our stay. The Loft is less than 15 minutes either direction to tourist things, north to South Haven or south to St Joseph, and very convenient. Thanks to the owners for making sure our stay was great!"

  • Family Vacation

    "This is our 3rd time renting these cottages. There have been several updates done since the first time: new sheets, blankets, pot & pans, silverware (enough for everyone), new docks and new appliances in the lower cottage. Had a wonderful week, rented both cottages for our extended families. Swimming was great, the lake was warm. Did several kayak and canoes trips thru the different lakes. The older kids especially enjoyed the fishing, caught enough that we had fish for dinner one night. Had a campfire several nites even though the weather was quite warm. Had one rainy day but there was easily enough room at the main house table for several rounds of cards which kids and adults enjoyed. Fred and Sue were very accommodating and the rental process was easy."
