  • Awesome stay!


    This little lake cottage was so welcoming! Brett was awesome and quick to respond to questions. House was equipped with everything we needed. Caught lots of fish off the dock! Close to both Saginaw city and Bay City. Beds were comfy as well!! Lots of rest and relaxation and sunsets were beautiful to watch every evening. Great Michigan vacation!!!

  • Sisters get away


    Thoroughly enjoyed the house and the view for our yearly sisters get away. It totally fit our needs and wants. View and deck were fantastic!!My only criticism is that the kitchen floor was sticky. Not sure why.My suggestion would be an update on kitchen tools and dishes. We didn't do alot of cooking and used paper plate so what was there met our needs but had we wanted to cook up a storm what was there would not be adequate.
