  • Great house, wonderful location


    This house was amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better setting to spend the weekend with friends (better weather maybe).

    Beach view, clean, spacious. We will be back in the warmer months for sure!

    I've traveled and stayed at many rental places before and we even have a timeshare in Maui. None of these can compare to this rental as far as customer satisfaction. This was by far the best place we've ever rented. The house was tastefully decorated. The wrap around deck with the gas grill, the beautifully appointed kitchen with all its high end appliances, bosch, Kenmore etc as well as the clean and updated bathrooms were much more than expected. The temperature control as well as the speedy wifi were my requirements that they managed to meet. Not easy to do for an up north property. We made use of the fire pit on the property while we watched the gorgeous sunset by the lighthouse and the beach across the street. The owner was very friendly and accessible. The lawn and flower beds were well maintained by a very nice lady who was kind enough to provide kindling for our fire pit. There are a lot of little nice touches that meant so much to me and my elderly parents. The motion sensitive nightlights, little stash of Tupperware in the drawers and the hose conveniently located by the door so you can rinse off the sand before going inside. All this and much more just made everything so welcoming. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Better than the pictures!


    We stayed at this beautiful cottage for a week and enjoyed every minute of it. The area is beautiful and not at all as crowded as some of the other Lake Michigan coast towns. The beach on 5th Avenue, right across from the cottage, was so nice and not full of pebbles or rocks. The concession stand at the beach has amazing food that is not your typical concession stand food and you can walk right across the street! But, we enjoyed most of our meals in because they had everything available to cook and grill.

    The cottage is so beautifully decorated. It is definitely better than the pics shown. The sunsets that you can see while sitting on the balcony upstairs were amazing. There was an issue while we were there but the owners were very responsive and did everything they could to fix it and make it right, even though it was out of their control. We look forward to staying there again.
