Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the amazing winter getaway!!!!!! My husband and I were just looking for a quiet getaway for the week because all we seem to do is work. It was every thing we were hoping and then some. It was very clean,cozy, and relaxing. Thank you so much and we can't wait to book again.

Our first family vacation with adult children and grandkids. The house is beautiful, the kids ages were 3,5,6,6,17,18. It was a wonderful time and would make for a great comedy series. Our pet Toby scared the caretaker so she didn't come back for the trash, so after 10 days....there was a lot. If we would have thought about it, we would have taken care of it by finding out where the dump was. I replaced the homes decoration to early and one of the vases got broken, and needless to say, the same kid locked us out of the house before we could finish our clean up. We would love to come back if the owners are interested in our Dennis the Menace family. We still received some of our deposit back, which was greatly appreciated. We saw eagles, fox, turkey, raccoon, lots of chipmunks for morning entertainment (we didn't feed them). Water was great, chilly, but kids don't care.

The Hollerback's

  • 5 of 5

This property was the best place for our family vacation. The pictures do not do it justice. The beach, yard and lake house our well maintained (and up to date). Our kids (3 & 5) loved the beach and the large waves that Lake Huron provided. We enjoyed walking along the beach, coffee on the patio (we spotted a bald eagle), splashing in the water and s'mores on the fire!

Many amenities are provided for you: towels, shampoo/conditioner, washer/dryer, hair dryer, pots, pans, dishes, etc. I overpacked!!

Looking forward to our next stay!

Perfect and charming!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time here and we will definitely come back. The photos online do not do the cottage justice! Everything you need is right there for a perfect home away from home time. The view of the lake is gorgeous and also a spectacular view from the bedroom upstairs and downstairs. It was fun to have the fire pit so close to the lake and we really enjoyed that in the evening. My parents rented this house in hopes of it being handicapped accessible for my mother who uses a motorized wheelchair. It worked out for all of us. There are no steps and a walkway around the house. My mom was able to get around and we worked through any slight obstacle. I had read one review that mentioned some troubles with a couple of things so if you have very specific needs I would always recommend calling and asking anywhere you are renting first! The bathrooms and kitchen and living room were spacious enough for her to move about freely which weak really appreciated. We were happy to walk into a clean and updated cottage and had a nice note from the owners with some snacks and a bottle of wine. The little touches are nice. We loved it so much that we stayed an extra day- and the owners were more than generous. We can't wait to come back! đź’– Sarah, Eric, Dave and Peg

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the house was very relaxing. Very nice home. Everything we needed was supplied. We loved sitting looking out at the lake.

I thought the home would have been a little more accomadating for my husband being he is in a wheelchair and paralyzed. He couldn't take a shower because it was just not big enough for him to transfer into. He could not go through the slider to the patio because it was not wide enough, so he would just go around from the side door. When he brushed his teeth and shaved that had to be done with a dishpan at the table because he couldn't get close enough to the vanities. Above all of this we made it work.

I would recommend you take wheelchair accessible off your listing because the only room that was easy to maneuver around was the kitchen.

I have checked out several listings for handicap and wheelchair accessible and the first thing I see is steps on the homes. People really need to understand the meaning of accessible.

I would highly recommend the lake house to anyone who is not impaired.The pictures on the website don't do it justice. Just so nice and relaxing.
