  • Very comfortable house


    This house was great. Bedrooms were spacious. The kitchen, dining and living room were roomy enough for family to gather.

  • Basic and Affordable Getaway


    We enjoyed our stay in this antique home. Everything is in good working condition, and it has character. (Clawfoot bathtub! Creepy basement that looks like it's from Blair Witch Project! Slanted ceilings upstairs and original wood staircase!) That said, this house has just the basics inside and nothing extra. For exampe, there's a frying pan, but not a mixing bowl. There's *one* cutting board, but not a complete set of measuring cups. No fridge magnets, no pens, no spatula. We purchased and gifted to the house room darkening curtains for the front bedroom (you're welcome), but guests in the other rooms will want to bring a sleep mask or additional window treatments to block out light. Also note, there are two window AC units - one upstairs, and one downstairs. They work well, but if the weather is very hot, they'll be working very hard to cool the entire house. There is a box fan available in each of the upstairs bedrooms. Also note, contrary to the listing, the washer and dryer in the basement are free (not coin operated). But you must bring your own flashlight to go downstairs! The steps are pitch black even in the middle of the day. We had only pleasant interactions with the neighbors and saw a momma deer and her fawn grazing on the lawn across the street early one morning. The house is conveniently located near the beach and downtown Manistee.
