Guest Reviews of our cottage retreat

4.7 out of 5 stars based on 10 user reviews.

Wonderful condo. Spacious & comfy with appealing front porch.

My wife and I have enjoyed staying in several Manistee rental properties with Unsalted Vacations in the past few years. We love the close proximity to the local beaches, boats, and the lighthouse that this condo complex offers. We prefer staying in condos where the back deck overlooks the water. But with this year's shortened vacation season, we selected this condo. While it may not have been our first choice, it was an excellent choice! It was clean and very comfortable accommodations for both of us. The old fashioned front porch was our spot to idle away the time. And of course, the city has so much to offer and the beach is just a short walk away.
5 out of 5 stars

Great family vacation

11 Cottage Lane surpassed all expectations. It was perfect for our family vacation along with the easy access to both the pool and the beach. 5th Ave beach is the greatest, rarely crowded, great food area and REAL bathrooms.The cottage came with 3 cruiser bikes which was a really nice touch. They were used and bike rides happened alot. The cottage was furnished as pictured and it good repair. Had a problem with water pressure, 2 people could not shower at the same time without reducing pressure to next to nothing. We figured that out and were able to work around it.Definitely would consider staying there again.

Cottage 11

Review by Janet S.
We loved our stay in Manistee. Cottage 11 is our favorite. Always clean and a great location. Does need to add more bath towels. Our only problem every year is the late check in and very early check out!

Thank you so much for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation rental with Unsalted Vacations. We understand the check in/out time isn's ideal for all, but it is necessary so our cleaners are able to get the property cleaned and ready for the next guest. We do hope to see you return in the future.

Amazing super clean place close to everything

Review by Carol V.
Pros - too many to list - but we loved how clean and well stocked the house was. Bright and airy too. Everything we wanted to do save a few things were within walking distance. The association amenities were fantastic.1 con. The upstairs bedrooms, no matter what we turned the thermostat to - especially the room off of the other, was at least 10-15 degrees hotter at any given time of day. The basement and main floor however were always nice and cool or even chilly at times. We had infants so they couldn't stay in the basement. Overall the place was great and we will definitely be back.

Thank you so much for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation rental with Unsalted Vacations. Unfortunately, with the hot/humid summer heat we have experienced air conditioning units have a hard time keeping up. We do hope to see you return in the future.

Beautiful Vacation Place

Review by Linda G.
The 5 of us rented this cottage, and we all had a wonderful time. The nearby clubhouse with indoor and outdoor pool and hot tubs was great for a rainy day. We could walk to the public beach, which was so clean - they raked it every night. Beach-walking was fun too, and you can walk a long way. We kayaked on the man-mad pond - a very serene place. Manistee is a quiet, charming town - not too commercial, but it has some nice restaurants and shops. The only problem with the cottage is, if 5 adults are there, one of the 3 bedrooms does not have its own door. Fine if you're traveling with children, but awkward for some to have to cut through another bedroom to get out. Also, the plumbing needs work - if someone was in the shower, you could not get any water in the other bathrooms. Minor point - the cottage has every luxury, and the kitchen is gorgeous and well appointed. Basement laundry was also very handy. The garage has bicycles and beach chairs and games. Videos are located in a chest in the living room, we found out on our last day! Really a wonderful cottage, surrounded by gorgeous perennials.
