Frank Michaels and John Donovan
Why Frank Michaels and John Donovan chose Fennville
We built our home on a wooded lot in 2014. The lot backs to a wooded conservatory. The apartment was created during the construction with the intention to provide vacation rentals, and is separately zoned for heating and air conditioning. Local wildlife include deer, black, brown and fox squirrels, wild turkeys, as well as a wide variety of other birds. Guests are welcome to use the screened-in porch, patio and outdoor fireplace and grill at the back of the house.

Property was just as listed. Very spacious with plenty of room for the four of us. Neighborhood was beautiful. We did find it difficult to find the street as it was dark when we arrived. I would certainly recommend this property. The property owners greeted us when we arrived and answered all our questions regarding the best places to eat. Would definitely stay here again.
Great fall getaway
Frank and John were super hosts and made our stay enjoyable and comfortable. If I could have rated them 10 stars, they certainly deserve it!
Gorgeous forest setting
Very spacious, nice appointed with split 2 bedrooms, each with adjoining bath. Perfect for two couples. Attractive antiques to admire. Beautiful wooded trails to walk with surprises by white tail deer. Surrounding towns offer great antiquing and wineries. Short walk to view Lake Michigan. This experience goes to the top of our list@
My family of 3 just got home from a 2 night stay, and we highly recommend Frank and John's rental. It was incredibly spacious, comfortably appointed, and the owners are genuinely nice and welcoming. The location was perfect for us: it offered solitude and was a short walk to watch the sunset over the lake, but was still close enough to easily get to all the shopping and restaurants the area offers. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.
Loved our stay. Beautiful, clean, well kept. The property is in the woods with deer wandering about, just gorgeous. The owners could not have been more accommodating. They were eager to help in any way they could. I would highly recommend this rental!
We enjoyed our stay at this spacious comfortable apartment. It was so nice not to have the all bric a brack that is in most rentals that drives us crazy. The surrounding woods was perfect to walk the dogs. The only suggestion I would have for the owners would be a list of clean-up they would like before we leave. We would definetly come back!
