“Nice but lacking”
Reviewed August 24, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I stayed here this past July for about a week. This place is nice. However as time went by I started to notice certain things that could've been better.

For starters the teflon frying pans are in dire need of replacing. The insides are crumbling. Which isn't a good thing.

They could've also used a bigger trash can. The one they had was a small one you'd normally find in a bathroom. So it led to alot garbage bags left on the side porch. Had they a regular size can, we probably could've fit everything into like 3 bags.

None of the clocks worked either. We had our phones, so not a major deal, just figured with all the clocks in the house atleast a few should work.

Going back to the porches, if you look at the website it mentions two seasonal porches. However therecwas only one I considered a porch, however it did not have railings.

Then there is the main room. The main room is right off the kitchen and did not offer any privacy. There were curtains on the doors, but they were see through.

The furnitire was outdated. I realize there aren't many shops in town, but most of the furniture (beds and living room furniture) in this house is probably older than I am. It was hard to sleep in the beds and getting up off the couch was a chore in it's own.

Finally there was a cost discrepency. On their website it stated one cost, but the site must be outdated, as we paid more than what was advertised.

So sorry you didn't like the place. We've had so many good reviews, but it is nice to hear how we can make things better.

We do feel we should address these issues: the kitchen garbage can is small because it is stored under the sink. (We provide garbage bags.)

Not all the pans are teflon - there are also glass pots, stainless steel, and aluminum. Two teflon pans frying pans were replaced at the beginning of summer.

There are two working electric clocks and one working battery-operated clock in the house. We think 3 clocks is sufficient.

The living room couch that was in the house at the time you stayed was replaced a couple weeks ago. It was old, but comfy. The rest of the furniture may not be the latest style, but it is not 'old,' and it is clean. Some of the furniture and bed frames were purposely selected as antique, to go with the house, which is over 100 years old, as stated in the description.

The front porch does not have railings yet - AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS. We do have railings that are being painted to match and will be installed as soon as they are ready.

As for the cost - as with many Rentals, our rates are higher on the weekend. This site averages it out - there is nothing we can do about that. We do not charge more than stated, nor do we collect more than stated.

Thanks for staying at the 'Nest,' and for your honest evaluation.

"We had a wonderful stay at Noochie’s Nest Vacation Rental. The accommodations were immaculate and we loved the space provided so that our family of 5 had many options for sleeping, eating, and playing without feeling cramped. Much care and thought went into the items available in the kitchen so that we were able to cook our own meals and enjoy packing picnic lunches to take with us to the beach. The cable TV and internet access were appreciated at the end of a long day of hiking or playing on the beach. I was impressed with the cleanliness and décor of the house and really enjoyed learning about the history of the home as well. I believe it is a great value for a family such as ours, many other vacation rentals and cabins charge per person including children, making it difficult to afford accommodations when traveling with three children. The hosts were very friendly and willing to take care of any needs we had. We felt like they were family by the time we left! We had a wonderful stay and will continue to recommend Noochie’s Nest to our friends when looking for a fabulous place to stay in Michigan! "

NOOCHIE'S NEST was exceptionally clean and really was very close to hiking trails in the Porcupine's and beaches on Lake Superior. Everything that we needed was there and when we needed help, Brenda was there to help. There was so much space and excellent privacy.
