  • Great stay again!


    This is my home away from home when I working in Manistee, MI. I stay here once a year for annual work. This home has everything you need and is very spacious. The view from the living room is a prime. You sit, relax (next to the fireplace) and watch the beach waves, light house and birds fly by. And if you're there in the winter time, you'll see beautiful snow falling. I highly recommend this place.

  • Does not disappoint


    Absolutely perfect for 3 friends getting away for a few days. The house was immaculate, beds were great, kitchen and supplies were more than expected. Nothing but perfection.

  • Beautiful property in a great location


    This beautiful home at the mouth of the Manistee River is an ideal base for exploring the Manistee area. Downtown shops and restaurants are minutes away. The house layout is great, with bedrooms upstairs and down. The bottom floor has an open layout, with views of the lake. Decorating, furniture, and appliances are all first class, and it's the only place I have ever rented that actually has sharp kitchen knives. Overall a fantastic experience.

  • Absolutely great stay


    The house was absolutely amazing. The description did not do it justice. Ever room in the house was over the top. It met every expectation. The cleanliness of the house was exceptional as well. The views of the lake and lighthouse were amazing no mater what time of day. We would very much recommend this house to our friends. We will most definitely be back someday!!!
