Not to our expectations

  • 2 of 5

This area of Michigan is teeming with things to do for young and old. Glad we returned here with the family to our home state to enjoy the weather and everything this part of Michigan has to offer. Unfortunately we were quite unaware of some things. The lake has moss/algae and is not particularly inviting to swim in. The pool loses 2" of water a day and we were expected to keep the level of the water up. No one came to check chemicals after rains and water loss. We were met by our hostess when we arrived who promptly provided us with the set of expectations that had been included in the contract but had not included the fines that would be levied if left undone. I am a very particular housekeeper and go beyond expectations wherever I visit. To be presented with fines for failure to meet expectations put a very dampening effect on our vacation mood. We had traveled from Iowa, Texas and Tennessee to spend a week reconnecting with our children and grandchildren. Some examples are: $100 deducted your damage deposit if you leave more than 10% of sheets and towels laundry undone; $400 if the pool is contaminated with lake biologics from not hosing down before entering; windows open while A/C on $100 per occurrence; furniture not returned to original places $25. Dishes not emptied and returned to proper places $25; $10 if the microwave is not wiped out. You can see what I mean, and the list goes on. On top of this, although the house was very well stocked with lots of toddler toys and games, there was no safety beyond a toggle lock for the two sets of sliders to the outside. I purchased two spring tension rods to place high up between the slider and frame so our twin 4 year olds (who we were sure wouldn't get up at night and go outside) could not randomly wander outside to the lake or pool. We had to restock laundry detergent as well. The house was large and pleasant, but, really, a double bed for the master bedroom upstairs? When the contract came there is an additional per day charge for over 8 people. We did accept that prior to arrival. I realize this sounds like sour grapes, but our past experiences with Vacation Rental by Owners have been so much better and we felt a lot more welcome. My family had vacation rentals when I was growing up and really expected to actually have to clean up and do laundry and wipe things down besides cleaning the floors and bathrooms when our renters left. (Bring replacements and take the dirty laundry out)

Owner's Response: We always appreciate it when visitors offer tips in the spirit of improvement. It is our hope and mission to provide a lovely home and a great vacation. Fox Lake is an inland lake that attracts more boating than swimming. We do provide a paddle boat, a dock for fishing, and have found that visitors enjoy the lake. There is also a pool if lake swimming is not your preference. Given the extra people coming in and out of pool (especially children) plus temperatures over 80 degrees, there will be some water loss which is one of the reasons a hose and water are provided. If the water level is not kept up, the pump for the pool will not work properly. The chemicals in the pool are checked weekly plus a professional pool company runs a full chemical work up monthly. The company assured us that nothing needed to be done with one rain cycle, since it would not affect the levels. The bed sizes, house amenities, and responsibilities are listed on the web site and in the booking information. We have found visitors like things to be clear so they can enjoy their vacations. Again, thank for any input that can assist us in providing a high quality vacation.

We come back every summer!

  • 5 of 5

We adore this lake house! We have come back every summer for 4 years now, and we are thinking about returning for a 2nd trip this year.

Matt and Kimberly are fantastic and only a text or phone call away if you need something or have a question. They continue to update the house, and every year we are even more thrilled with the ways they make your stay perfect.

There is tons to do all around you - theme park, driving range, sand dunes, state park, blueberry picking...just to name a few. The view of the lake is so beautiful, from the couches upstairs or downstairs or outside sitting by the pool, that often I find myself just watching the water. So relaxing! You can get out in the lake and swim, take the paddle boat out, fish, or just sit on the pier with your feet in the water. Sunsets are perfection.

The pool is fantastic, and the solar rings really help get the water comfortable. I might have spent most of the time I wasn't gazing at the lake floating in the pool!

There is a great fire pit down by the lake, perfect for s'mores and bonfires. And if you are looking for something else to entertain you, they've got games, movies & books, new tvs upstairs and down, and wifi.

Our dogs love it as much as we do!

Can't wait to get back to the lake...

great rental for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was our first stay and we were very positively surprised about how perfect this home was for us. Home has two levels, 4 bedrooms, 2 family rooms and 2 full bath rooms. There is a kids bed and also pack and play available if you travel with todlers. Also there are plenty of games and toys for the whole family to play, should you not have great weather (like we had ;-)

We were very impressed how well the condition was, everything was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed and was well stocked whether it was coffee filters or paper towels, everything was well prepared and inviting. Also compared to the last rental we had, water at this rental is drinkable.

We really liked the pool for the kids and used it everyday. There are plenty of toys around to play in the pool or sand toys to play at the lake. Many chairs to lounge at the pool or lake, really everything is available.

Blueberry picking at Palmer's Blueberries and Whiteriver Yoga in Montague were our favorite visits along with trips to the Kruse Park (Lake Michigan in Muskegon). All in all a great location.

Thank you Matt and Kim, we hope to be back next summer

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review! First, we are so glad that you had a grand stay. Second, so happy that you made it around the area to discovery that there are so many great, interesting and fun things to do in the Muskegon area. Finally, thank you so for noticing that we try so hard to have a vacation house that surpasses expectations, anticipates needs and strives to be a vacation house that visitors want to return to again each year. Please come again--each year we try for small and larger improvements. The newest additions new DVD library expanded to 80 + movies and a 90 foot dock that make use of the water more diverse.. Again thanks for noticing!

First timer and couldn't have been more impressed

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very welcoming and easily available. Everything was just as expected and more. The house has so much to provide, even for us as first timers using this website or anything like this. Kids couldn't have been happier with all things provided at the house. Pool toys, yard toys, sand toys and a bank of movies. There was a convient binder with all kinds of references of activities in the area. We enjoyed the property a lot and made lots of memories with our family of 8. Would definitely book again. There is no negatives I could even leave here.

Owner's Response: Thanks! We strive to provide a vacation house that is fun and memory making. Whether rain or shine our goal is to provide a family fun vacation. The house has lots of inside and outside spaces so multiply activities and a variety of activities can go on simultaneously or at different times of the day--whether breakfast making, reading, sunning, game playing, grilling, fishing, paddle boat riding, swimming in the lake, a bon fire, swimming in the pool, napping, snacking or just plain laughing with family and friends,

Overall Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

The interior of the home was nice. Plenty of space to spare for a family of four. The location is good, centrally located among much to do. Our sole purpose for chosing this property, however, was the pool. While it is well maintained it was virtually unusable. We had great weather, mid-upper 70's since arrival, and on day five the water temperature remains colder than Lake Michigan. The investment of a solar cover for the cool evenings would be well worth a few extra dollars for the rental. Additionally, it would have been appreciated if the grass was cut. Not only had it obviously not been cut for sometime (better then 8 inches tall) some weed killer would enhance the outdoor appearance, making time outside much more enjoyable. The picture down to the lake is also deceiving - the pier is in sections on the driveway.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to note how lovely our vacation home is—We strive each year to make improvements. Like the new lovely full lower level bath this year and new pool liner last year. We apologize that the weather did not keep the pool at the warm temperature it had been with the exceptional high temperatures for Michigan this summer. If we had known, we have solar rings to raise the temperature (a solar blanket can be too dangerous for the small children that visit our vacation home). The rings are stored since they are not toys and if improperly stacked they easily can be damaged. No notice during the stay was given that the pool had cooled off. Vacationers please remember without notice we cannot assist in a timely fashion and it is our goal for families to have a fun, pleasant and restful vacation.

Great house if you are travelling with teenagers

  • 5 of 5

The house was well laid out and was located near Michigan's Adventures and local restaurants. The teenagers took over the lower level, while the rest of the family stayed on main floor. Kimberly made us feel welcome and gave us great suggestions for things to do and restaurants to go to. Extensive DVD library, reading materials (magazines and books) and games. Would definitely stay there again.
