What a great place!
What can I say--This is a terrific place! It has it all. Beautiful views of the lake from large and numerous windows; sandy lake bottom; more than fully stocked kitchen; comfy beds and high quality sheets; tasteful decor; everything is clean and functions well; washer/dryer; numerous tv channels (not just basic cable); wi-fi actually works better than in hotels; the house is light and airy; loved the fire pit and chairs down by the water; even the small touches were there, such as candles all around and a big bouquet of hydrangeas to greet us on our arrival! Todd, the owner, really knows what he is doing. Sorry to see the place is rented most of next summer :(
This is a real home away from home. Thank you, Todd.
What a great place!
We arrived to find a pitcherfull of beautiful hydrangeas on the dining table. That's the kind of detail that made this house just terrific. The owner, Todd, is just meticulous in everything he does and the house shows it. Everything is just so. The home is large and airy with lots of windows for beautiful views of the lake. It is immaculate. The beds are comfy and the decor is low key and in soothing colors. The kitchen is extremely well equipped; there are plenty of towels; the sheets are of high quality; the wi-fi worked; the tv gets all kinds of stations (not just basic cable); everything functioned well! It was a PLEASURE to be there, plain and simple and my family enjoyed every minute. We felt right at home.
Todd has a real gem there. I'm just sad it's fully booked for most of next summer already!!!
Incredible time- above and beyond our imagination!
The Jones home was absolutely beautiful- the pictures online were lovely, but didn't hold a candle to the real thing. Their hospitality, in their attention to detail, was incredible.
Gun Lake is a beautiful destination- and this home was a lovely place for our family to stay while preparing for our son's wedding at Bay Pointe Inn.
It was a blessing of a week- thank you so much Todd and Julie!
Girls GetAway Weekend
Every year 5 of my girlfriends and I get together to spend a weekend of fellowship and fun and we have stayed in different areas of Southeast MI. From the moment we walked into this home we were blown away! This home had everything to accommodate your every need and we never expected this home to be be as beautiful as it is with a spectacular view and access to beautiful Lake Gun. It is beautifully decorated and very spacious with an open floor plan. The kitchen area on the upper level has a cooking island and there was plenty of space to prepare our meals. My favorite place to sit was in the sunroom off the living room, it has an incredible view of the lake and a perfect place to do a puzzle! The lower level has an equal amount of space with a big screen TV and walk out area onto to the patio and access to the water. This home is spotlessly clean with every amenity that you could possibly think of - you don't need to bring a thing. We will definitely be back to this home and we are considering bringing our spouses on our next trip! Thank you Todd Jones for providing us a beautiful place!
What beautiful place! We have stayed in vacation houses all over the country and this was one of the best. The attention to detail is amazing. The owners have thought of everything. My sister and I commented about how much fun it would be to do a couples thing in the fall but this is certainly set up for families. My 3 yr old grandson arrived a couple of days in and there was a complete toddler bed/linens set up for him! From the moment you walk in the front door (past beautiful landscaping, including an herb garden)you keep finding things to be thrilled about. The first floor is a wonderful open concept kitchen/livingroom/dining area. The first thing we said was that the pictures on the website do not do it justice. It is spacious! No narrow hallways. And storage the likes of which I wish I had at home. In addtion there is a fabulous sunporch and another deck off of that. The views are stunning! We cooked every night and the kitchen has everything you could need including a big island which we served off of. Downstairs was more amazing space. The bedroom set ups and the Murphy beds worked great and are so pretty! Bathrooms are new and everthing was spotless. Besides the upstairs deck, there is a covered patio below where we grilled and ate most of our meals. The water, dock, shore area was perfect for our family. We brought a boat and jet skies. The lake is beautiful. I cannot say enough about this place. I almost hated to review it this way as it will get harder to make a reservation in the future!
We stayed at this vacation rental in October during our visit from Oregon. The views of the colors along the lake and through the countryside were incredible. We sat on the deck drinking coffee and watching the lake. The house was very clean and beautifully decorated. It had all the essentials and the kitchen was well fitted for some fun cooking. While we had 4 adults I can see where this would be a great house for a family as well. We loved it. Great place! Thanks.
