Great property for outdoor activities next to beautiful lake with pontoon boat

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay with family. The house is old but pretty well kept up. The back lawn is beautiful and the pontoon boat is a nice perk. The back deck is very large and has plenty of space for dining. The only negative of the property is that we had zero phone reception and no internet connections. Had to drive several minutes to pick up reception and/or access internet - not too much of a problem if you're looking to disconnect while on vacation.

Beautiful, Perfect Family Set-Up!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 families had an awesome time at this home. The kid's loved the 6-bed room, and everyone else fit comfortably. The lawn and lake are what set this apart. Beautiful space for the kids to run around, play volleyball on the lit court, go boating, fishing, swimming etc. Couldn't have asked for a better getaway. We will be back soon!

Nicely decorated cottage but very disappointed

  • 2 of 5

We planned out 2015 girls weekend at this lake cottage. The home itself is very nice and so is the property but that's where it ends. The lake is mucky and cannot be accessed from the property because of the muck and the weeds. The boat was available but is in terrible condition, dirty with mold everywhere and the battery had to be replaced immediately and the radio didn't work.

Top that off with the family owns the property next door and allowed a group of 25 young adults to wrap up their summer at the cottage next door and for what we paid we were very disappointed. Loud music and noise all day and night, unless we kept going over and asking them to keep it down.

There is a property manager who tries to be helpful and nice, but wasn't able to help much since we were dealing with family.

We've rented property up and down the west side of the state of Michigan and never had any of these types of issues. The west side of the state is a great area and we loved South Haven and St. Joseph's. We will return, just not to this property.

Sold On Saddle Lake

  • 5 of 5

We drove 4.5 hours for this spot so it had better be worth it, right? Definitely. Four kids 17, 13, 11 and 7 and they all asked when we were going back. The property is very well cared for and comfortable. Saddle Lake is beautiful and the 10 mile drive to South Haven was just right. A few days on Saddle Lake a few days on Lake Michigan but plenty of time preparing family meals in the great kitchen, relaxing in the hot tub and even a Thursday morning movie on satellite tv. We will be back again.
