“Met our expectations PLUS!”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We used this cottage for a girl's weekend, and can't say enough good things about it! It has everything you need to stay, is very clean, and the neighborhood is quiet. Right on the water with a sandy beach--looks like it would be great for kids, too! Owners very easy to work with. We will be coming back! Thanks, Randy & Joelle!

“Comfortable lake side retreat”
Reviewed 5 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My daughter and I stayed in this comfortable cottage on the lake for a week and felt secure and 'at home'.
Everything was provided except the weather (and gosh, do they have electrical storms in Michigan!). There is a supermarket in the town for basics but we didn't find anywhere to eat out.
For both of us it was a much needed rest and retreat from a stressful life. Standing on the balcony and watching the sun come up over a peaceful lake, you can't help but 'chill'. And life seems to take on a different perspective when it's just you and the Loon and a distant fisherman on the lake.
Thank you Mr and Mrs Wrona for letting us stay in your lovely home on the beach.

“Very clean and well stocked”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Spent A long weekend with my husband and another couple at this cottage which was definitely more like a home. The place was very clean upon our arrival and was stocked with everything you could possibly need. Lots of linens and towels and extra pillows and blankets. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly think of including spices. Plenty of room for large families and groups to spend a relaxing vacation. The lake was great for fishing and we caught a 12 inch perch!! The neighbors were great and actually hung out for a bonfire one night. We are already making plans for an extended stay at this cottage sometime this winter..The owners were kind and easy going and very accessible for any questions. I would highly recommend as it is worth every penny!

“Great family fun!”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The Lake Cottage Retreat was just that a great Retreat. We enjoyed it from the first walk out onto the dock! We took full advantage everyday of the kayaks and paddleboat that were provided. The cottage was clean and everyone slept so good. The owners were very easy to communicate with.

“This is a great cottage, we loved our time here.”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The cottage is exactly as described. It was immaculate and has everything you need for a great vacation. The kids loved the pedal boat and everyone loved the kayaks provided. There is also a rowboat. We loved that it had a gas grill and the owners even provided the propane. We loved that it has central air as it got very hot while we were there. The kitchen has all the dishes, pots and pans, and small appliances you would ever need. The owners are very easy to work with and left clear instructions as well as suggestions for leisure activities and restaurants. We would definitely recommend this wonderful cottage.
