Time in a bottle

Review by Susan G.
Loved staying at this property. Updated just enough but yet felt like you were back in time. Everything you needed was available if you didn't bring your own. Beds are super comfortable, house stays nice and cool. Just wish beach access was available, but otherwise I totally recommend this place. Staff was great at responding to emails

Perfect back to school family retreat week

Review by Derrick R.
We loved the location of the property. We were slightly bummed since we did not have soon or beach access from the property however, we made quick to explore and find many other lake front and beach options. First night there we played cornhole and sat by the fire pit. Kids enjoyed some snores. Second day we explored the county parks and found a beach to play at all afternoon. That evening we grilled out at the property. Wednesday we went boating on Lake Mackatawa and lake Michigan. That evening we enjoyed dinner at top a few tavern. What a neat little hole in the wall setting with good cheap meals down by the river. Thursday we fished a bit from the shoreline at a couple locations along the East Grand River. Afterward we spent the at a local brewery/restaurant. We did not eat much later that evening. We did go to putt and go carts. We had an action packed yet relaxed week, where we did alot around the area and we spent quality time together at the rental property. One of our favorite areas and vacations this far.

Great Family Stay!

Review by Ann D.
We were disappointed that the beach access was closed due to high water table in Lake Michigan but were able to find beaches in the area that were very nice. The cabin was comfortable and clean. We were a little disappointed that we could not see the lake from the property, we had to walk over the dunes to see water.

Great Cottage!

This older cottage was as advertised. Rustic. We did not mind no internet, not TV, we were there for the beach! Just a short walk over a sandy hill to the beach. I was a little disappointed with the beach. The path was grown over with grass and hard to walk through. The beach was also very grassy, but we enjoyed our time nonetheless. Although the cottage was old and needed some aesthetic repairs (deteriorating baseboards, etc), overall it was clean and well stocked. Except for towels. We were told towels were provided but couldn't find any. We ended up buying some at Wal-mart when we went to town for groceries. I do have a physical disability and found the stairs challenging, but that was my choice. The hill to the beach was more difficult than I expected, by my friends climbed it without difficulty. Quiet and somewhat secluded was a bonus! I would stay here again.
