Excellent location right on the beach.

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at Hoff Cottage for a night about two weeks ago. I was coming in from out of town to celebrate my friend's marriage. The location and space was perfectly accommodating to enjoy a relatively quiet evening for drinks, food, and cards with some friends (tho we had a laugh about which one of us had to sleep in the bed with the Spiderman bedsheets 😂).

There were some fruit flies flying around the kitchen and the wifi cut in-and-out which made streaming music a bit difficult (which I imagine just comes as part of the remoteness–none of us had any cellular signal!). Otherwise, the location was very clean and everything we needed worked reliably, most importantly the gas grill on the patio.

Thanks again for providing an excellent location to enjoy an evening with my friends.

If you do wind up staying at Hoff Cottage make sure to take in the view over the lake. It was tremendous to see the moon come up over the horizon.

We really enjoyed our yearly pilgrimage, which is turning out to be a family tradition!

the cottage is getting nicer each year with the great upgrades.

the kids can't get enough of the beautiful property and gorgeous lakefront (which incidentally was really sandy this year!)

looking forward to many more happy returns.

Still our "Home Away from Home"!

  • 5 of 5

Our fourth year at Hoff Cottage and it gets better every year! Newest updates are well done and well chosen, thank you! We especially appreciated the new door wall this year with sliding screen door to keep the flies out while allowing in the cool lake breezes. Love the new furniture and placement of the TV too! We treat it all like our very own because we appreciate when everything is well taken care of by all who stay at Hoff Cottage in the years to come :)

As always, I remind you to bring toilet tissue, paper towels, and laundry supplies if you plan on using the washer and dryer! If you discover that the dryer seems to be taking a long time to dry your items, be sure to pull the dryer out from the wall a bit because sometimes it tends to get jammed in too close to the wall and dryer vents (yes, experience is speaking here!)

Steve, Pat as always is a pleasure to have available should he be needed and he's always friendly and right there if and when needed :)

For four years now, we know we've got the very best accommodations there are -- no need to look further! Our Great Dane agrees! Looking forward to five in a row in 2017 ♥

Very nice accommodations

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is perfectly located on the water; the upgrades made inside and out were very nice. We just have two comments to share:

. Some of bed linens did not have a top sheet -- only bottom sheet and blanket

. New TV (DirectTV) ... there were no instructions on how to work (there were 2 remotes); could not access the Tigers baseball game; all movie channels were pay-per-view. Perhaps you could consider an updated channel package?

Overall, great place and we hope to rent again next year!

Owner's Response: Old linens will be replaced with new ones in Fall of 2016. As for the Directv, it is the standard setup so if you have DIrectv you will know how to use it. I only keep the basic package on TV as the cottage is not meant to have people sit around and watch TV. It is meant to be able to be a suitable time killer if there is bad weather. If people request a PPV or want a particular channel then I will add for a cost.

Had a BLAST!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Hoff Cottage for a week. We live in Virginia but most of my husbands family live in Michigan. Some stayed the whole week and some were only able to come for a couple of days. We were able to fit everyone in to sleep and had ample parking. The beach access is awesome and we have a lovely week with weather. We were close enough for my husband and I to take our boys to a Tigers game as a "day trip" and another day trip driving up to the tip of the thumb. Very nice cottage and Pat the Cottage Keeper was quick on a couple of very minor things. Being able to bring our dog was great. We wouldn't hesitate to rent again!
