    Dianna C from Saugatuck, MI recommends this vacation rental

    It was great. The location was very nice and close to Northport, Suttons Bay, etc. The views were spectacular, sunsets awesome, clean sandy beach, water was crystal clear. The cottage was very homey and clean with a large deck. The only negatives are the beds could have been larger and the water pressure stronger for showering.

      Island View is a beautiful spot to enjoy Lake Michigan. We are pleased you had a great time.

    Perfect view, watch the waves of Lake Michigan lapping along a stunning beach from the large deck of this quaint, cozy, comfortable cottage.
    Leave your worries behind and enjoy the peace and quiet of this up north gem!

    Lisa P from Ann Arbor, MI recommends this vacation rental

    If your family likes to live cozy, then this clean and tidy cottage offers sunsets over the water, horizon spotting of Great Lake freighters. The beach is mostly sandy so bring your kayaks to the easy entry water. Bring your bikes for miles of paved roads among the orchards. There is a small lawn for bocci or croquet (provided) but plenty of woods so the neighbors are not too close. Best--you can enjoy an UpNorth vacation with your dog.

    Fantastic property, with beautiful views, extra large porch, beautiful beach, and a great deal of privacy. The home is beautifully decorated, with lots of space, and an excellent layout. The home is well stocked and was very clean. My husband and I spent our honeymoon there, and would like to go back every year. No suggestions for improvement - it was simply awesome!!

    Sheila H from Westland, AK recommends this vacation rental

    Had a wonderful weekend at the Island View vacation rental. Home was extremely nice, neat and clean. toilet was clogged with a bar of soap when we arrived. management was great and had the problem resolved promptly! Everyone was very pleasant and friendly. we definitely enjoyed our stay and will be back in the fall for a longer stay. Views of Lake Michigan are Breathtaking and the pictures definitely don't do it justice! wish we could of stayed longer.

    Julie K. B from Muskegon, MI recommends this vacation rental

    First and foremost, Bonnie and Kathleen from Visit Up North were FABULOUS. Extremely kind,helpful and professional at all times. It was nice to talk to familiar individuals from the organization and not contractors being coached like at VRBO. With that being said, I still liked when your email went directly to the homeowner and the rental process from there on was between the homeowner and renter. After speaking to some homeowners in Northport, they,too, voiced concerns of not having that communication with their renter. The rental was AWESOME. We barely left the entire week. The views of Lake Michigan and islands were far better than anticipated. We enjoyed the deck, grill, fire pit, and numerous walks on the beach daily. Cottage very homey and comfortable. Loved the geraniums on the deck and comfortable outdoor furniture. One of our most relaxing vacations ever. Brilliant Sunsets.

      We are glad you enjoyed your stay and also glad that you think the correspondence was great. We actually do all of the correspondence from the office and are not the actual home owners but care like they are our homes so I am sure that is the confusion. We love and care for our properties like they are our own as well as the community and neighbors that are surrounding. WE hope that you come back and see us again real soon!
