Great place great pools
We loved the place. Very charming and sleeps a ton of people comfortably.
Clean and well appointed. Plenty of room for everyone! Don't bring towels!
My siblings, their spouses and I had an amazing time at "Big Trees" this past weekend! We met for a family wedding and, despite 4 days of bad weather, we took full advantage of all the amenities and had a blast. We used both hot tubs and there were plenty of towels for all of us. Sadly, we did not make it into the pool but it was much bigger than we anticipated. The fireflies and humming birds were plentiful. Full disclosure, the freeway is really loud. You can't see it but you can definitely hear it. That was not a deal breaker for us, however. The setting is private and remote and you receive so much for the cost compared to a hotel or motel. Oh, and the owners were so helpful and accommodating. We would definitely book it again. Thank you for a memorable weekend! 😊�
Thank you for your kind review of our vacation home
We are planning a Thuja tree lined sound break for the upcoming season although many renters have had no issues with the noise
Loved our stay
Patricia was great and we all had a fantastic time.
It was great. Close to everything that it said it was.
We had a blast. We we're able to visit family. Cook meals, beds were comfortable, kids were happy since their little cousins could stay. As any normal home that isn't yours we had to figure it out but that made it fun and we made a game of it or laughed. It is close to I-94 as it says and the map shows, but even with the older family that stopped by, we didn't have to scream to have a conversation. We will be using it again!
We love it when our visiting families enjoy our vacation home as much as we do!!!
We value our visitor's evaluations and use their comments and suggestions to make our vacation home a pleasant place to be.
Nice house to stay in. Only about a 15 minute drive from St Joseph. The bedrooms are on the main floor. So on our trip adults were upstairs & kids had the basement. The basement had two futons, a roll away & 2 couches plus bathroom & tv with a good variety of movies so that was great for the kids. The 2 hot tubs were nice to have. There was an issue with a previous renter messing up the pool so the new pool was not installed yet. The owner compensated us for the pool being missing. It would have been nice to have more room for seating when visiting at night & eating breakfast but we were not there much so we made it work. Kitchen had mostly everything we needed to make breakfast. I would be a return renter if we come to St Joseph again.
Its always a pleasure for us to stay at and enjoy our vacation home in the Lake Michigan area. We love to share our second home with our guests
We do our utmost to provide a comfortable place to stay in and supply the extra value of the added amenities.
We are pleased to announce the recent install of the pool (thanks to the professional abilities and kindheartedness of our recent renters Thank you, Lanie and company!!)and a new gazebo to enjoy as you vacation at Big Trees
Please stay tuned for more surprises to come as we are planning more upgrades for early 2019!
Richard and Patricia
The common areas were decent but the all seasons room looked like the floors weren't cleaned in months. There were huge spiderwebs in the entryways and the basement bathroom had around 15 alive bugs in the tub and on the bathroom floor. I'm assuming the bathroom was cleaned at some point maybe weeks ago but there is a bug problem. We also didn't have the password to retrieve the key and got no answer via phone for a half hour so my sister had to crawl through an unlocked window to get inside. When I read the check out instructions on our last day I saw the password was located there to put the key in its place. This would have been helpful in the check-in instructions. The outside area could have been cleaner and there is a hole in the concrete below the patio. There wasn't lighting to enjoy the outdoors at night. The grill was charcoal which wasn't ideal and it had all of the ash from the previous users still there. And the grill was rusted. If I knew this was the circumstances I would have chose a different house. Would I return? No. Would I recommend it to family and friends? No. And on top of it all, Frank is gone too.
