    a guest from Weidman, MI recommends this vacation rental

    The whole experience was very pleasant. We got some much needed rest and saw a lot of local sites. The weather was hot but didn't stop us from doing everything we wanted to do. The house was comfortable and VERY clean. One of the cleanest rental houses we've ever had. Kitchen is well stocked. But we do have a few complaints : NO AIR?! The drains for both bathtubs are VERY slow. The faucet in master bath is backwards, hot is cold and cold is hot. The shower curtain rod in the other bathroom needs to be replaced. No shampoo or cream rinse (huh) but we had brought some with us so we were covered. Only 1 tv. No full length mirror. That being said, we would recommend this rental pretty highly.

    a guest from ELKGROVE VILLAGE, IL recommends this vacation rental

    The Rental Property was very nice, clean and had all the amenities for a country stay.
    The only thing i would advise is to check you mobile connections as we were not getting any range with our mobile network we were on. Also the property does not provide any internet connection, that would have been a plus. Otherwise the place a really nice very close to the scenic drive, and the Bear dunes Lakeshore. Had a nice feel to the house, with the way the owners had set it up.

    Overall, a good experience. Convenient location to reach nearby attractions. Nice layout with two separate sleeping areas. Decor in cottage was nice, lots of homey touches. Carpet needs to be replaced or stretched to get rid of "bumps". Also bed in master was not comfortable. We would stay again.

    a guest from Ada, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We enjoyed our stay in Glen Arbor. The house was adequate for us. It was very quiet. We were disappointed that we could not get the DVD player to work even though we called a few times about this issue. The night we chose to use the gas grill, we found it had a bees nest inside. By the time, we could get that resolved, it was too late to use the grill. We were surprised this had not been noticed and fixed before our rental date. Perhaps, no one had used the grill all season. The man who killed the nest was very nice. Other than those 2 issues, our stay in the house was fine.

    a guest from Champaign, IL recommends this vacation rental

    We needed a short-term place to stay off the lake. This one was neat, nicely-located near Big Glen Lake, and included a lot of nice little decorating touches. Not fancy, but just what we needed. (Note: I left a note for your or the owner's benefit that the bath tub drained very slowly, but it was not an inconvenience for us. Also, the antique bed in the third bedroom included bouncy real springs in the old style of beds. We chose to sleep on the box springs in the other two bedrooms instead.)

    Michelle T from Waterford, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Good location to explore the area, nice fire pit in the back and the place worked greatly for the 6 in my party.
    A few points to think about:
    Don't be fooled, there is no longer a fold out couch, even if the maid leaves a note saying where the sheets are for the pullout! The furniture is upgraded from the pictures on the site, but we missed the couch bed. There is an air mattress, but it doesn't hold air.

    It is quite an interesting walk to the Lake, its not straight forward or easy, would not recommend the walk with little kids.

    Other then that it was a great stay!

    The King Bed was extremely hard and could not sleep at all the first night until we could find padding. Also both tubs did not drain well at all and spent one day plunging away to little avail.

    Kathy N from Elizabeth, CO recommends this vacation rental

    This was the ideal space/ place for our family. My brother and his wife stayed along with my husband and I- each of our boys stayed with Grandparents who were less than a 1/2 mile away. We will definitly look into renting this space again next year. The only challenges we faced were no controls for the sleep number bed and no extra trash bag(s) so we could easily take the trash out.

    a guest from Midland, MI recommends this vacation rental

    The cottage itself was very comfortable, quiet and clean. It was well stocked with DVD's, games, fans (there is no AC), a BBQ, fire pit, lawn chairs, linens, and dishes. We had a great time and felt very much at home. The only negatives were: the yard was not very well maintained, it would have been nice to be on the lake (there is only one small section of Glen lake nearby that is public, and you can't really walk there from this place), and we tried to make homemade ice cream, but the freezer never got cold enough the whole time we were there to freeze the ice cream maker.

    My only issue with the stay was the master bed. It is an air pressure control bed and one of the sides could not be set and was uncomfortable. If this is corrected we would definelty stay again. We loved the location and the house was very clean and had
    everything we needed.

    We loved our house near Glen Arbor. It is convenient to many things. While it was not on the lake, we were able to go to many nice beaches and it was in the middle of a variety of recreational activities. While it was close to Glen Arbor and the amenities
    it offers, it was not "too close" and we had a very peaceful stay. I would definitely come back.

    a guest from new york, new york recommends this vacation rental

    We had a very comfortable stay, we used the grill and had a wonderful bonfire one night. The cabin was very clean, the beds were comfortable and all appliances were in good working order. There was even a small library of summer reading. My only complaint...nowhere near enough towels. 6 adults taking at least one daily shower and ONLY 6 towels for the duration of our stay. The weather was hot and we spent most days at the beach, necessitating an extra shower but only having a damp towel to use. I would recommend at least three times as many towels in the future. Thanks

    Sue A from Huddersfield West Yorkshire, England recommends this vacation rental

    I went with my family, mother, son, daughter and her partner and their two children. The cabin was a little remote, but we like it quiet so it suited us perfectly. We were a little disappointed with outside of the property, but accepted it was rural and
    not on a twee park with all cabins identical. Inside the property was excellent, we had plenty of space and everything we needed, very comfortable and homely. Traveling from England to spend time with my son, we wanted something we could feel relaxed and<
    not have to worry about the two little ones doing something they shouldn't. We felt very much at home. It was quiet and had the weather been better, we would have spent more time outside in the evenings. We had a great time hiring canoes, and there were plenty
    of places to visit in the surrounding area. A great base, a great holiday but not for those wanting to party, have the hustle and bustle of a town. We would definitely go again if we were wanting to travel North.
