“Classy lake house in God's Country”

Loved our week here for the first time. Clean, sparkling lake and beautifully landscaped outdoors. The home is great- a bottle of wine awaited us, with clean robes, towels, and a fully stocked home. Our family of 4 fit perfectly. If you have trouble managing steps, the ones to the lake or upstairs may be an issue, but the rooms and bathrooms are wonderful.
Easy communication with owner, and a book of suggestions for the area was a great touch (not to mention almost a house full of floats, fishing items, toys, DVD's, books, kitchen items like ice cream makers!). There are cheaper lake homes for this area, but none that are more classy.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Sanctuaire has something for everyone. The house is cozy, well maintained and attractively furnished. It is well-stocked with kitchen equipment, games, fishing tackle- almost anything you can think of. The lake is sparkling in the sunshine from the moment you awake to the sounds of songbirds and wildlife.
Nearby wineries beckon as do farmstands with fresh honey, Lake Michigan, antiques and some pretty awesome
restaurants. Despite being so near to everything, it is also a haven of privacy and remote enough to provide a
peaceful stay. I never wanted to leave.
