Beautiful Vacation Location
For our group of 9 adults and 7 children, this was the perfect house! Beautiful house, lovely location, but there are about 130 steps to the lake.
Bigger than the pictures!
This property was excellent for my family. We had the maximum amount of people with my parents, brother, and sisters and their families all getting their own room for their families. Plenty of space for everyone, even in the later days of the week when you get sick of your extended family!
The owner was extremely responsive to any questions we had prior to booking and throughout the rental week. They reached out a time or two during our rental week to make sure our stay was going well (via e-mail).
The location is great for little kids as the subdivision is small and private with next to no traffic. Just keep an eye on them near the backyard overlook to the lake as it's a slight drop-off to the beach below. There is an amazing petting zoo 5 minutes down the road very worth spending a day at.
We'll be reaching out again for sure.
We rented this lake house for an extended family vacation for 18 people (10 adults and 8 kids under 10 yrs old). The house is immaculate and beautifully designed. For having such a large group, we never felt cramped. There was plenty of space for everyone, even when stuck inside on a couple rainy days.
The beach was beautiful with powdery white sand. It is a hike down to the beach using the stairs, especially when carrying babies/toddlers. However, I think we can all thank them for our newly formed leg muscles!
The house is in a great location. We made a few day trips from the house during our stay, all within a 45 minute drive or less. We definitely hope to return some day soon!
We had a wonderful week at the cottage with our families! The cottage was absolutely beautiful, and the beach was amazing as well. We had 18 guests (including ourselves) stay for our wedding held in Grand Haven. Between spending time on the beach, grilling out, campires, and a wedding - there was plenty to keep us busy, but also plenty of relaxing. We even took advantage of the ranch closeby and went horseback riding with the entire group.
The owners made the entire rental process extremely easy, and had everything laid out clearly for us, not too mention they were very friendly and easy to work with.
Thanks for a perfect week; we appreciate everything! We hope to make it back someday!
