    Ronald J S from Northbrook, IL recommends this vacation rental

    Overall the house layout was perfect for our 2 families. The furnishings were modest, but acceptable for us. Little things like we had to replace a few light bulbs, (Fridge, Downstairs bedroom.)We did find some spares..and the lower hinge on the closet door downtstairs needs some longer screws as the bottom hinge support was barely connected to the wall. And minor inconvenience of rebooting the cable...

    It would have been nice if there was an explanation of a recycling program or lack thereof. We only had one garbage bin and assumed there was no recycling??

    The big complaint was the snow removal service never came out to plow the drive or clear the steps. on our last night coming home my wife slipped on the last 4 or 5 steps coming down as there was much snow build up and we could not even see the steps. Just for your fact gathering, the only time the driveway and steps were cleared was before our arrival on the 27th. we stayed through the 31st and we found a shovel to do some digging out ourselves during our stay.

    We do like this option for our family when visiting our parents and are interested in trying again next summer when we go up again. Not sure if it would be the same property again?

      Thank you fro your feedback. As is true in any house, light bulbs burn out cable can go down (especially up north). Sad to say that we have no recycling program for rentals and rural areas do not offer. The weather was brutal for this weekend. We had a plow at the house Friday 29th and Sunday 31st. The weather event we had Saturday was incredibly challenging and we are sorry that the plow could not clear again on that evening. The county Sheriff had a bulletin out to stay off of the roads for much of Saturday unless it was an emergency. Caution is always advised when walking on the steps. We do leave salt out at the top of the stairs for guests convenience and also a shovel.

    Anne M from Chelsea, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We enjoyed staying at this rental but unfortunately we were there during a heat wave in Sept. and there is no A/C. There are ceiling fans in 2 bedrooms, not in the 3rd and box fans for each room, but they were not enough to alleviate the heat. The other problem is there are no blinds in the windows facing the bay so the sun just beat into the living area! We were comfortable at night and did lots of swimming which helped. The rental people were great and the cottage fit our family of 6 adults easily. Also nice is the trail across the street and the easy walk into Suttons Bay.

    • Manager Responded on 11/22/2017

      Thank you for staying with us and sharing your concerns. We will look at adding more fans. Go figure, a heat wave in September!
