A Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome. The location couldn't be better (we would walk to the beach, the General Store, and it's close to everything). We have two kids, and we would occasionally drive to the beach because we had so much stuff, and it was easier. I did REALLY appreciate that there was a wagon at the house, and we would use that when we would walk.

I do have to say, that there wasn't a single bed sheet or towel in the entire house (bath towel, hand towel, wash cloth, or dish towel). This wouldn't have been an issue had I known beforehand. As it were, I spent $100 on sheets and towels at Walmart. So, just something to know before going - bring your own sheets and towels!

Other than that, the place was well-stocked. The kitchen had everything we needed, the laundry room was awesome (the washing machine was big enough for all our beach towels at one time). Be sure to buy some charcoal and a lighter for the grill, BBQing on the back deck was such a fun way to have dinner each night.

There wasn't air conditioning, which was totally fine for us, but just something to note. Since we weren't there during the day, and the nights are cool, we didn't need A/C. There were fans in all the bedrooms and they worked awesomely.

This was a great place and was the perfect spot to celebrate the 4th of July with our family of 4. Thank you to the owners for making it so wonderful!

2 houses together!

  • 5 of 5

We rented these 2 houses together for extended family members and always found them to be well-maintained, perfectly situated, excellent places to stay. The owners are local, which is useful. Lakes Macatawa and Michigan are near enough to be accessible, but far enough to ensure privacy.
