    Michael B from Perrysburg, OH recommends this vacation rental

    This comfortable home is located on an excellent section of Lake Michigan beach. The back porch overlooking the lake was wonderful. The kitchen could use a few more pots, tools and knives and there was almost no toilet paper but otherwise it exceeded my expectations.

    Mike W from Brighton Twp, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Our vacation was wonderful despite a few cool days. The location was perfect with beautiful views. I would recommend this property. My only recommendation would to clean the exterior. Many spiders were present in the evening which is natural near the water.

    Archibald M from Breckenridge, CO recommends this vacation rental

    West windows need shutters.
    Front yard has no grass or plant, just dead weeds... Not very pleasing

    • Manager Responded on 8/7/2013

      Thank you so much for your review. We will share the window covering idea with our owner. Not sure what you mean by the front yard. We consider the lakeside the front. There is a great deal of beach front and you will get beach grass that cannot be removed. As well in July there is not much rain and things get pretty dry. If there is no irrigation the yards look a little toasty. Things are nice and green now that it is August.

    a guest from Glencoe, IL recommends this vacation rental

    We had a lovely weekend at your house. It was rainy but that didn't change the beauty that surrounded us. The view out of the family room windows was stunning. The house was a little smaller than the photos indicated, but it was nicely arranged so we didn't feel cramped. It was clean and well appointed. We couldn't have asked for more. Thanks!

    The only improvement I would strongly suggest is to get the TV and Internet hooked up.
