Fun week at the beach!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, daughter and I and our family stayed here for a week and had a great time. It was really nice to have our dog with us, however the beach is shared and some of the other people at the beach did not care for dogs. Beach is amazing, albeit it quite small so if multiple families are on the beach it does feel crowded. Cottage itself is very comfortable. Owner is very responsive and took care of the few issues we had in a timely manner. Overall, we had a great time!

Sweet Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of spending a week at this wonderful home. It couldn't have been any better. The house is set in secluded woods in a very quiet setting. The house has everything you could need for a family vacation. The owner was very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. We have vacationed in Michigan several times and never had access to what I would call a private beach. The beach access is only a couple 100 yards away from the home and it is awesome with breathtaking sunsets.The location allowed us to also make a couple college visits to WMU and MSU. We would jump at the chance to stay here again and would recommend this house to anyone that wants to have a relaxing vacation in a very cozy home with a private beach!

Private, serene and close to Lake Michigan!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house surrounded by nature but only minutes from town. We saw deer, wild turkeys, pilated woodpeckers, and much more on a daily basis. The house was well kept and felt like home. The owner was gracious and very accommodating. We had the private beach to ourselves every time we went there! Sitting on the porch surrounded by the sounds of nature was so wonderful we did not want to leave!
