Color Tour

  • 5 of 5
We came up from Holland, MI with another couple to do a weekend of color touring. We had a great time with this beautiful lake cottage as our base of touring. We only wish we had brought along another couple or two - - there is plenty of room and very comfortable arrangements. Maybe next year. This particular cottage is on a bit of a "bump" (vs. peninsula) out into Hamlin Lake, and the cottage is very close to the water's edge - - so your view from the living room is about 220 degrees of beautiful lake with the exposed dunes across the lake. The place is very well maintained, very clean, and very comfortable. We highly recommend it!

Corporate Planning Retreat 2014

  • 5 of 5
Our leadership team of 6 returned this year for another off-site planning session. Unfortunately we had to cut it short this year due to a medical emergency, but we did make good use of this cottage for a day and a half. What a great place to be away from the office to relax, focus on the "important" vs. the "urgent". Just being here is very relaxing, and being our 2nd year here we could move right in and be comfortable with the amenities and environment. We had a very productive time there, very much enjoyed our planning time and will definitely return for year #3 next fall! (Great Wi-Fi and cell reception.)

Wonderful place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in VRBO homes in TN, MO, MI and Canada. By far, this was the cleanest home! The owners went above and beyond to make sure that the home was equipped with the standard amenities, and more. We opened a large closet and it was filled with games and puzzles. Since it is right on Hamlin Lake, the view was amazing! It is a relaxing, quiet home that is perfect for family gatherings. We are very happy with our stay!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed here with our 3 kids (ages 6, 4 & 1). I was pleased to see the house was spotless...you could have eaten a meal on the floor. The house was stocked with toys, games, kitchen ammenities...even "baby" silverware ( which I forgot to pack). The property is well kept and gorgeous. Jim was easily reached with any questions we had. We plan to stay again. We reccommend this to anyone!!

Excellent Corporate Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our leadership team heads "up north" every October to have some quiet time to review the past year and plan for the next year - - and mix in a little R&R as well. This cottage was a huge hit with our whole team. Lots of room to sleep everyone comfortably, we met alternately at the dining room table or spread out in the lakefront living room. This is by far the best place we have rented for our planning retreat! We are planning to return in 2014.

Location

From the Owner

We purchased our house as our retirement home, but we are still some years away from retiring. So we thought we share our home with guests until those retirement years roll around. It's a peaceful and scenic setting and the water can be viewed from most rooms in the house.
