About Joe Young
Our family has enjoyed years of fun filled summers, Holidays and many family reunions. We have been business owners in the Detroit Metro area for over 20 yrs and now spend more of our time traveling. So, we thought we would now share our home with you.
Joe Young purchased this House in 1984

Should be cleaner!
Fabulous beach! Great location not far from metro Detroit. This is a great house but it needs many updates and deep cleaning. The kitchen is spacious but so disorganized it was difficult to work in and the cupboards haven’t been cleaned in years. Please change the shower curtain!
There are several wonderful amenities: convenient outdoor shower, full bath on each of three floors, commercial washer and dryer, great wrap around deck and large bedrooms.
We had some hot humid days and the room air conditioning units did not do enough. For the price we paid, it should have been clean and cool. My family of 15 enjoyed our stay but we will not be returning.
We had a very nice time
We had all of our kids and grandkids with us. There was plenty of room for everyone. We all really enjoyed the water (very clear), beach, sand, and outdoor activities. The house is in need of a little upkeep, particularly exterior paint. The inside was nice and cozy. Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay.
Not as represented in description
The house needed some major maintenance and cleaning. Cobwebs throughout the house, dirty dishes, pans and silverware as we found out the dishwasher was not working correctly, something they had issues with in the past as we learned while there, so we just hand washed everything. The kitchen faucet leaked the entire time. There were at least 1/2 dozen screens ripped letting bugs in so could not leave the doors open in those rooms, there were room air conditioners in various rooms which did help some. Missing lightbulbs and a circuit breaker that you had to reset numerous times throughout the day so you could use the upstairs bathroom. In that bathroom they knew that the faucet had a broken handle which made it unusable for our grandkids. The number of beds and location of them is deceiving, there are 2 sets of bunks in a room off the garage that is musty and very dingy. There is a double bedroom in the lower level that sits back with no windows or ventilation and is very damp, no one would sleep there. There are the double bunks also in the lower level, but using them takes away from using the pool table into the evening when someone was going to sleep. The dampness in that lower level is an issue as we had to empty dehumidifiers a couple of times a day. In the large front bedroom, we found ladies underwear in one of the trundle beds, which could indicate that sheets were not changed. There are 2 sets of laundry units and the one in the garage had sheets left in them from the previous cleaning which when you opened the washer they smelled and then the cleaning person just pulled them out an put them in the dryer as my daughter and I watched in disbelief as were finishing up to leave.
The outdoor tables, deck and swing are in dire need of repainting.
A few positives as there is a second refrigerator in the lower level allowing us to use it for beverages and not have to run out for ice. There is the local market right at the end of the driveway that stocks most anything you would need. A couple of very good restaurants and ice cream parlor in town and the Stone Lodge allows reservations which was great for our group of 16 one night out.
Lots of beach area as the high water has not seemed to have affected this area as much, but it is a long walk to the water from the house. At the end of the trip everyone had commented we had great time overlooking the fact the video makes this look much better than it was as we were with our Family.
My family and I had a great trip at this house . Anything we needed it was available . The house was nice and clean and the view was beautiful. The owner and property manager were easy to get a hold of for any questions we had before we got there and while we were there . Thanks for the great memories.
Amazing Beach House
Place was perfect for a group of friends. We booked the place because of the beach volleyball and it exceeded our expectations. Would stay here again in a heart beat.
Amazing Home To Connect and Relax
My mother passed and my 3 children and their families needed a place to stay during the funeral. Mr Young was gracious in opening his home for my 6 adult children and 5 grand children. It was comfortable and had space for everyone. My children were able to relax while grieving their grand mother. Mr Young’s home was clean and located in a quiet neighborhood. My children told me having a cup of coffee and watching the sun come up over Lake Huron was breath taking. All want to come back in the summer to vacation. Thank you Mr Young for making a tough moment for my family easier.
