Excellent Summer Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was an absolute delight! Charming, cozy, well decorated without feeling stuffy or overcrowded - even with 4 adults and 2 kids occupying the home. The care the owners put into the property was noticeable from the first moment we entered. Although closed up between rentals on a 95+ degree day, the air in the house smelled fresh and was cool. Once we opened up the windows and turned on the many fans, it was just the perfect temperature for our entire hot and sunny stay.

The bedrooms and bathrooms were very large with new furniture and bedding, and plenty of room for personal items both in dressers and closets. Jerry recommended we bring extra beach towels, but we didn't really need them since they provided more than enough beach and bath towels for our crew.

The yard and beach were beautiful. We enjoyed hours of midday sun playing in the sugar sand and warm, shallow water - be sure to bring extra sunscreen because you'll never want to go indoors! The fire pit was used nightly for s'mores and relaxing before falling asleep to the sounds of the surf.

This is hands down the best Saginaw Bay private beach house we've had the pleasure of renting in the 10+ years we've been staying in the area and we can't wait to come back again.

Beautiful home, beautiful view!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was nicely updated, clean and very comfortable!! We felt very much at home. There were snacks and wine on the table to greet us and the most beautiful view of the lake. The sunroom was our favorite place to hang out when it rained but, the rest of the time was spent on the beach!! We really appreciated that mom's dog was allowed. Very peaceful, quiet area. Owners were very accommodating.

Good spot ~!~!~!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home with everything needed already there. Especially nice was the empty wooded lot next door and being Oct., all the locals were also gone. Had the entire area to ourselves. Quiet ~!~!~! Loved the front, cedar paneled room----great place to read. No issues what-so-ever.

  • 5 of 5

We visited with friends for the weekend and had an amazing time. The beach front was beautiful and water is shallow for my kids to play. Very clean and cozy! Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Also it was close to Tawas for a night out to dinner and we also went canoeing in the Rifle River. Perfect for my family! Will definitely come back.
