vacation rental description

The Brooks Lake A Frame is a very private retreat. It sits on a
quiet bayou with two different views of the water. The 100 foot
frontage offers two docks, complete with a small row boat and paddleboat.
This spacious cottage boasts 3 levels of comfortable living, complete
with 4 decks. The loft bedroom has 2 twin beds and another single bed on the
loft's balcony, the two main floor bedrooms each have a queen size bed,
and the walk out level has one room with 2 twin beds, and the other has a full size bed.
Additionally, the lower family room has a full size futon that sleeps two.
The lower level also features a bar area for entertaining. Take advantage
of the two cozy gas fireplaces during winter months - the first is on the main
floor while the second is on the lower level.
We do ask that you smoke outdoors in respect to the owner's asthma.
There is plenty of room for kids to play in either the front or
backyards. We even have a small sandy beach area at the water's
edge. Water can be accessed right in front of the cottage with the
levels starting at about a foot deep.

traveler reviews for this newaygo cottage rental

Stayed there many times, mostly good last time bad

Review submitted: October 23, 2012   Date of arrival: July 21, 2012

My sister's name was on the contract but this is Kathleen writing. We have enjoyed staying at this cottage for the last four years.
This time through no fault of our own, the septic system flooded over, it just happened to top out the week we were there. The owner was quick to send out a plumber, septic cleaners and in-home cleaners however we had to live 24 hours with feces all over the floor in the laundry room, and a horrible stench filling the bottom floor. The plumper asked us to be careful so we voluntarily took very short showers, and only flushed if we went #2. We collected toilet paper in bags. After the cleaners left the smell was still very bad in the bottom bedroom which was carpeted and had been flooded with the septic water. We were unable to use that bedroom for the rest of the week (4 nights), and the entire downstairs remained smelly.
My sister respectfully asked for some of our money back but was told that since we had received a discount (small), no more money would be forthcoming. She went on to say that our family is no longer welcome at the cottage! We did not cause this problem and voluntarily took the measures above so as not to contribute to it.
Needless to say this business has some problems. The bottom floor may still be polluted with the remains of the flood, and there was inappropriate refunding for terrible conditions, inability to use one floor and loss of use of one downstairs bedroom. The ceiling also leaks water onto the downstairs bar. There is mold and mildew in the ceiling above the bar and in the downstairs bedroom.

50th Anniv. week.

Review submitted: August 16, 2011   Date of arrival: August 6, 2011

We had a wonderful week with our family for our 50th Anniv. Every adult unit was able to have their own bedroom. The location was perfect. Close enough to GR to have friends come up and visit for the day. The swimming for our granddaughter (8) was perfect. In addition to the paddle and row boat we rented 2 kayaks. Great time sitting around the fire ring at night.
Minor negatives: A little short on storage for dry goods we brought up with us. You have to be able to do steps. Some of the beds were quite hard, suggest some egg crates.
Would we go again? ABSOLUTELY!!!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing
