“Great Cabin”
Reviewed June 15, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Great family cabin! Beach is close by along with a park. Great fishing off of the pier. Paddle boat and canoe are fun. Back porch with grill are nice. Great spot for a 4-5 day trip

Good location, private and secluded without being desolate. Owner very accommodating and helpful. Cabin is comfortable and as described. A great place to get away.

“Weekend getaway”
Reviewed May 8, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We spent three nights at the cottage and it was wonderful. It is very easy to get to. You feel like you are away from everything, but you're surprisingly close to a lot of towns and site seeing. The house has everything you need plus some. The view of the lake is amazing, and the swing in the yard and the boat are great accessories. It is a perfect place for a couples getaway, or a good place for a family. It's definitely worth checking out.

“Beautiful and tranquil setting”
Reviewed September 24, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Bruce has a lovely cottage with everything you need for a relaxing time. The wooded lot on both sides makes it very private and gives it a feeling of seclusion. It is a comfortable home with a fully equipped kitchen and grill. Nice canoe and paddle boat that really goes well in the water. There is a good selection of DVD's and games available for your use. There is also a camp fire ring for your s'mores and pudgy pies. The county park is right next door and really nice for kids, kids would also like the quick fishing action. We took the short drive to Lake Michigan for a long walk on the beach. We had a great time!

The lake was beautiful. We loved the canoeing and paddleboat. The bathroom left a lot to be desired. Make sure you ask about the toilet and the smell!

The canoe and peddle boat are always favorites our renters. I am glad you were able to enjoy them.

As with all new renters I carefully explain the simple use of the toilet. It is very easy to use and is very environmentally friendly. If you actually listen to the instructions, there should be no problems with the toilet.

“Peaceful cottage retreat on the lake with beautiful sunset views”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

Loved watching the slow lingering sunsets over the lake,and the swans swimming by in the evening. Loved hearing the sand crane's serenade.. Close enough for day trips to Gilmore Car Museum at Hickory Corners and Saugetuck but far enough from tourism to kick back and relax in a natural setting with my home prepared meal at the cottage since my husband was on a special diet. .
Didn't care for the noisy construction next door from 9 AM on weekdays or the incinerator toliet but since we came in our van camper, we used our own portable thetford marine toliet so no problem.
Overall, it was a peaceful and relaxing retreat.

I am glad you enjoyed your time at the cottage including seeing the various birds and wildlife that inhabit the lake, and took advantage of surrounding points of interest.

As with all new renters I carefully explain the simple use of the toilet. It is very easy to use and is very environmentally friendly. The issue this couple had with the toilet was with the fan which runs as the toilet is cycling. The fan is isolated and is very quiet.
