5/5 Excellent

Super charming
Lovely decor. Conveniently located. Super comfy beds! Great cabin-esque amenities (porch for morning coffee drinking, fire pit for starry nights). A nice place to unplug. Highly recommended.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay
Fantastic stay at the cottage! Everything you need to make meals. Great covered porch which we used often. 10 minute drive to the hikes at Ludington State Park, and 10 minute drive into town for restaurants, breweries, groceries etc. Definitely will be back!
Stayed 2 nights in Oct 2021

Great Place!
I wished I would have stayed a few more days… this was my favorite out of the 3 places I stayed at during my vaca. Super cute and quiet area. The only thing I would suggest is to mention it is directly on the corner and the driveway is the 1st on the left when you pull onto the road (I cannot remember the cross street lol). It was a little difficult to see the address, but I am also very directional challenged lol!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Home
The cottage is just as described. Very cute and clean. Great location with lake views. Owners were very responsive to emails. We loved our mini vacation.

5/5 Excellent

Cute getaway
The house was very spacious and clean. I loved the unique art everywhere and the wonderful outdoor seating areas. I had breakfast and coffee on the porch each morning - a true paradise. Thanks for everything!
