We rented both homes in preparation for our daughter's wedding. We all gathered from various locations and chose this home because it was near the wedding in St. Joseph. The pet policy was perfect as our "kids" brought their dogs with them.
The steps in Cabin A are steep to the upstairs but we traveled them many times without any problems. You just have to hold on to the railing and step carefully. We all gathered in this cabin for breakfast as the kitchen was smaller. We had dinners in Cabin B because it has a larger, more modern kitchen with a nice open floor plan.
We used the pool several times as we came during the hottest summer weather in recent history. The air conditioning struggled to keep the cabin cool, but it must be rare for this area to experience 95+ degree weather for so many days without cooling at night. The cabins had fans to help circulate the air.
The beds were comfortable, two bathrooms in each cabin, plenty of sitting areas inside and out. Plenty of towels. Four curbside trash receptacles easily handled all our trash.
We had space to get organized and prepare for the wedding. We had lots of fun being together instead of having to stay in multiple hotel rooms. We made great meals and ate together instead of gathering everyone, driving to a restaurant, waiting for service, etc.
It was a perfect getaway and a perfect wedding.
Our families had a great time here. The cottages were neat and clean upon arrival and everyone really enjoyed the pool. Of course nearby Lake Michigan, a very short stroll, added to our enjoyment as did the proximity to wineries, taprooms, casinos, interesting eateries and much more.
Comfortable, well equipped cottages. Kitchen has everything you need, beds comfortable, sofa beds not so much. Beach very nice, pools and pool area a huge plus! Owner very responsive and helpful.
This place was absolutely amazing. We had both houses full including 4 children under the age of 5 and at no time felt crowded. The pool was great and it was made even better by all the pool toys included with the rental. The private beach was beautiful and only a short walk away. We loved that were fire rings on the beach and got some good use out of those. We loved everything about the cabins and Frank was very helpful with any questions or concerns we had. Will definitely be returning. Highly Recommended
Watching the sun roll into Lake Michigan from a private beach is priceless. We visited many breweries and wineries during our week at the Lakeside Beach House, but the best part was the two cottages. We could gather around the pool or at the picnic tables or inside. We rented both cottages and had a quiet side and a party side. The kids could stay up late playing games on the party side while a baby slept on the quiet side. The kitchens were easy to work in, and the grill set up was amazing.
