We came to celebrate our 26th anniversary. The owners are VERY friendly and helpful. The grounds were clean and well landscaped. The beach was incredible!! Very clean and sandy and the water was clear and weed free. The inside of the unit was a little dated, but did have brand new carpet and linens. The unit was cleaner than most... More

The Beachcomber location alone is reason enough to stay here. Easy walk into town for shopping ice cream, and the farmers market. Private Beach with fire pit. Right next to a beautiful park that includes a play ground, pavilion, and volleyball. Quick walk to the pier and out to twin sisters rocks. The new owners Jill and Glen are the... More

We had a 2 bedroom kitchen unit that had everything we needed. It was very clean and had new carpet."really nice for a 6 month old... More

A Perfect location on the lake paired with a great price! When I was searching for a place to stay in Port Austin, the Beachcomber stood out. It's right on the beach, just a few steps from the room. Second, It's a 2-minute walk to restaurants, shopping, bakery, etc.! From the moment we first arrived, the NEW OWNER Jill greeted... More

I stayed here on the Friday/Sat night before Memorial Day 2014. I booked the room at 4:30pm and arrived same day at 7pm. The office appears to be the owner's residence and I had to stand outside ringing the doorbell about 10min, as she was in one of the units and didn't see me at the door. She voluntarily knocked...

The motel is directly on the beach, about 500 yards from a bridge to walk on to. I watched the sunset over the lake from the bridge and the view was incredible. The motel room itself, was reasonable for the price. The employee at the desk seemed a little too young for her job, and overcharged us from our reservations.... More

my wife and I stayed two nights. no maid service the 2nd day we had to empty our own garbage and make our beds. The wi fi advertised only worked close to the office. The rooms are clean enough but old and tired for the rate that was charged. The location is good and the private beach is a plus... More

What a great place to visit. The service from the Owner and staff here was prompt, fantastic and very friendly. The rooms, location and private beach take you away from it all, you know you are on vacation when you are here. Just a short walking distance from downtown PA. Thanks for the good times!

The attention to detail of cleaning shows. Rooms are more spacious than expected. Not fancy but neat. There's a Refrigerator, separate area for coffee & luggage storage. Close to stores & water though still some work on adjacent public pier & boat loading area. There is a clean pool on site & deck area on site.
