We found a gem on the beach of Lake Michigan! The beautiful home had everything we needed to be very comfortable! The home is immaculately clean and views are gorgeous from the house! We cannot thank you enough Hilary for allowing us the opportunity to have a vacation we will treasure! Hope to return next year!
Debra, thank you so much for coming to stay! I enjoyed our conversations via email and text, you are a wonderful group. We would love to have you come back and stay again, and are very happy you enjoyed the vacation there! Cheers, hilary
Beachfront Forest Retreat
My family of 11 enjoyed a week long getaway at Hilary’s home just outside Manistique, MI. The home easily accommodated our large group-ie parking, seating, space, dishes, linens, etc... The garage full of beach equipment and the shelves of games was a nice bonus. It was easy to travel to and from the sights of the UP. Manistique is a quick drive and has a cute water front winery, restaurants, a cafe and local grocery. The drive to the house is beautiful and my dad even saw a bear (the rest of us were jealous). Definitely bring your bug spray. If we were the type of family to repeat vacations, we would definitely stay here again.
So glad you, the family and kids enjoyed the stay at our home Kelli! We have never seen a bear there, my parents have, what a treat for your dad, and tell him we are jealous too! Thank you for the nice review , and we do hope you'll come stay again.
Beautiful lake house in the UP
Our family truly enjoyed our stay here during our week in the UP. We loved waking up to a beautiful view of Lake Michigan every morning and enjoying a fire on the beach at night. The home had plenty of space for the 10 of us and was stocked with everything you could need and more. There were a lot of games and beach supplies to allow you to spend the day relaxing at the lake home, and there are plenty of things to see and do nearby in the Manistique area. We were also able to take several short day trips due to its central location in the UP. The check in and check out process was very easy and Hilary was quick to respond with any questions we had. We will definitely return to this property again in the future!
So very happy you and your family and the kids enjoyed the stay at our home Alysha. Thanks for the nice review and we do hope you'll come back and stay another time! Cheers, hilary
Perfect location on the lake
Had a lovely week staying here, Hilary was very responsive with any questions and when we arrived the house was extremely clean. The house is directly on the beach with lovely views of the lake. We would definitely come back to stay.
Helen we are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our home in the UP! We would love to have you come back and stay again. Enjoy the rest of the summer.
This home was the perfect place our a family vacation!
The house is very well-kept, and it provided everything we needed. Each room was large enough to fit a pack-n-play in for the babies in our group, the basement was a perfect play area for the kids on the rainy days we had, and the upstairs area was the perfect spot for card/board games for the adults after the kids were asleep. On the sunny days of our trip, we couldn't have been more happy with the sandy beach. I personally loved sitting out on the porch to enjoy the view of the beach!
This home is also located in a great spot. We enjoyed seeing Kitch-iti-kipi, walking the lighthouse boardwalk, and taking the kids to the playgrounds in town. Manistique is a great spot to be able to travel to Munising, Marquette, and Mackinac Island on separate days and not feel like we were driving a ton.
We loved our stay!
The pictures don’t do it justice. Very cozy family feel to the home, best view I’ve ever seen. So private and quiet, we had the best time. A must book home, great renters she’s really on top of her game. Thanks a bunch Hilary!
We do love the beach there, and the view from the house! Thanks for taking the time to write a review.
