"This was our second summer staying at the Great Escape and this year was just as perfect as last year. Nikki makes all the details a breeze, responds almost immediately every time. Even called us this year when the power went out for the whole town (was on again within an hour).
It's a relaxing feeling just to drive up to the cottage and know we'll be settling in to our time there. Everything is spectacularly clean, and comfortably arranged. The beds and linens are very comfortable, and we appreciated the variety of pillows, too. Loft is perfect for my daughter, and my mom and I each had a comfy bedroom. The cottage gets a great cross-breeze even with just the doors open and screen doors latched, we were always very comfortable. Ceiling fan makes even the warmest days comfortable in the loft.
The kitchen has everything we need and more. Bathroom also super clean, with great fluffy towels, and we love the shower.
The big dining room table was filled throughout our visit with puzzles, card games, art projects with beach stones, and of course great meals. Plenty for my daughter to enjoy, especially with the many hours we spend beachcombing.
It's a short drive to Pictured Rocks, and not too long down to Seney NWR. If you can drag yourself away from this cozy cottage, get the whitefish at the Dunes Saloon, cinnamon rolls and blueberry lemon doughnuts at the Breakwall Bakery, and make sure to stop at the Pickle Barrel and the Gitchee Gumee Museum to learn more about your beachcombing agates and other stones.
No complaints about anything - we had a superior time! (Sorry for the bad pun). Can't wait to go back next year!"
