Relaxing Cottage Getaway on a Beautiful Lake

Review submitted: September 3, 2013   Date of arrival: August 24, 2013

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay at this quaint cottage on Crystal Lake. This getaway is located in the quiet town of Crystal on a beautiful recreation lake. This cottage was the perfect size for our small family of four and could have easily slept 2-3 more people. The A/C window units served as great "white noise" for our little ones so they weren't woken up by the adults that stayed up later talking, watching TV, or enjoying the fire pit outside. There is a great rope swing that the kids definitely enjoyed! Even though this rental is in a more remote destination, we still got great cell phone service, and the cable television was nice one evening when it rained. We definitely look forward to staying at the little red cottage again!

Family get together

Review submitted: June 20, 2012   Date of arrival: June 4, 2012

This cute little cottage - a block from the lake had everything we could want & then some! We were looking for a cottage to rent on a lake in Michigan - near where we "used to live" so we could visit old friends & family (and have a comfortable home base) - just before my son deployed for Afghanistan.
It was a little chilly - early in the season - but the owners had heaters - plenty of blankets - and a generous amount of firewood for us! With 2 bedrooms & the sunporch - the accomadations were roomy for: Granny, Son, Daughter-in-Law, and grandson!

We had plenty of room to entertain dinner guests & they have a nice firering (for roasting up those "S'mores!). Walking distance to the beach & playround (then too several nice resturants - AND an Ice Cream stand) were additional - plus's to this rental. We had great times on the pontoon - plus cuaght a few fish! Our stay was all too short & we'd love to come back again!!

Great family gathering spot!

Review submitted: May 28, 2012   Date of arrival: May 24, 2012

We had a great time at the Red Cottage! Lots of room for gathering on the deck outside when weather permits or inside in the enclosed sunroom with huge windows with screens to keep the bugs out. Beds were very comfortable and lots of them... ny husband and I took the sunroom's twin trundle beds and loved the fresh air coming in through the screens at night. Ceiling fans helped move the air, but if it had been hot enough every room has its own A/C. Lots of towels, supplies, and dishes, the owners thought of everything!
Thanks for a great Memorial Day weekend! We will be back!
