3/5 Okay

Expect to clean
Nice property on a beautiful lake, but given the inclusion of a cleaning fee in addition to a relatively high rental fee, the extent of the owner's expectations that we clean prior to checkout was unreasonable (e.g., wash/dry/fold and put away all the towels). That wouldn't have been as annoying if the place had been clean when we arrived, but there were food and visible dirt accumulated under the furniture, mold/mildew on the ice/water dispenser, excessive spider webs on fixtures, etc., or if the dishwasher worked reliably. I have stayed with my extended family (of 12) in many VRBOs across the country, and this was by far the most extensive cleaning requirement we have encountered and meant that we spent the last evening prior to (in addition to the morning of) our checkout cleaning rather than relaxing. Also, do not expect the owner to be flexible or accommodating to any issues that may arise - the property manual is repeatedly punctuated throughout with the threat "...or you will lose your deposit".

5/5 Excellent

Great house!
Wonderful home. Right on a quiet lake. We hung out at the lake quite a bit, but great hikes were also only an hour away. Owner was very responsive.

5/5 Excellent

Family vacation
We had plenty of room for all 16 of us. The beach and dock were great for fishing and playing in the water.

5/5 Excellent

Great house and amenities!
This house was perfect for a large family vacation! We had 17 people ranging from 18 months to 70 years old and there was plenty of room and amenities to keep every one comfortable and busy! The kayaks and boat are perfect for hitting the lake and there is a sand bar about 100 yards out that was awesome to swim too! The host provided great recommendations for site seeing and dining in the area which were all wonderful! The fishing was great too!

5/5 Excellent

Just what we all needed!
We surprised my mom for her 60th birthday to have a relaxing weekend in the UP and this house was perfect for our family! We loved the location of the cottage (went to Marquette for a few hours one day), how close it sits to the lake and the layout was great for our group (6 adults and 2 kids). We had plenty of space and had bonfires all day, went fishing on the lake and truly enjoyed our time! The owner was great to work with and quick to respond if we had any questions!
