We were very pleased with this house. The main (1st floor) living area is spacious - a modern kitchen with open space that leads to a large dining area. Next to it is the living room which is very large, with a sofa/TV/DVD area plus other sitting/reading areas. And a master BR w/queen. Upstairs has 2 BRs, each with two beds but not much else. The full baths on both floors are modern and a comfortable size. The house has a large yard. Houses are spaced out in the neighborhood, but neighbors are accessible (we even got to know the nearby golden retriever and his owner). The house is incredibly stocked with everything imaginable, and the items are new or in good condition. This includes dishes, pots/pans, a variety of cooking machines (breadmaker, toaster, etc.), toiletries (toothpaste, toothbrushes, and many others), and even condiments (salad dressing, butter, many spices ...). The 3 modern higher-sitting beach chairs and small umbrella were especially useful to us - not too heavy and opened and closed easily. It should be clear to any person planning to stay here that there is no wifi, and no cell signal (we have AT&T and TMobile service). We adjusted to this and connected by driving a few minutes away (stopping our car at the point we got a signal) or just using the wifi in my sister's rental, a restaurant, etc. Although we are 3 working people, we didn't greatly miss the wifi - in fact it forced us to really disconnect, which was the plan for the week. But the lack of cell service did make communication with family members more difficult. There is a landline phone but it can only receive calls, or make 800 calls or calls to the local area code. The beach is a 10 minute walk (I was told 5 minutes, but it takes longer), straight down the street of the house. There's also a parking lot there which is always near-empty. There are a lot of stones on the beach, especially near the water, but there are also sandy parts with no stones. The water was cold and probably is too cold to swim in (except for the adventurous) for most of the year - but still, you get sunsets every night and there are miles of other beaches on Lake Michigan (like an ocean, without the salt!) nearby. While there is no local recycling pickup, you can leave recycling in the garage, and/or drop it off in a nearby city (e.g. Onekama behind the Blue Slipper Tavern). And lastly, Paul as the owner is accessible, responsive, and honest, and can provide a lot of details

The weather wasn’t perfect but the house was excellent, as was the location. We all enjoyed our stay and would recommend this rental highly.

My friends and I had a wonderful stay at the schoolhouse. Location was excellent and communication with Paul was wonderful. Had some minor issues with a mouse in the house that they were working on, and a minor plumbing issue that was fixed while we were there.

We had a wonder stay at the school house. It was close to Lake Michigan with a short walk to Old Faceful and the beach. The water was warm and the sun was out. Most days were spend at the local beach and nights at the fire pit with our family. The Evan’s have a beautiful and spacious home. Plenty of room for family dinners and it had a well stocked kitchen. We had everything that you would need for a beach vacation at the house. The Evan’s decorating and attention to detailed was spot on! Thanks for all your thoughtfulness and sharing your beautiful home!!! Hope we can come again! The Rinehart Family Aug 8-15

Paul was very attentive checking in with us by phone the day after we booked the property. He was also available every-time we called with questions or concerns. The location of the schoolhouse was ideal as we were centered in between so many cute towns to which we could take quick day trips. We did dune rides at Silver Lake, kayaking and rafting down the Pine River, and explored the town of Frankfort visiting its beach for a day and renting paddle boards. The highlight of each day was the beautiful Lake Michigan sunsets that were a short walk to the bottom of the hill. All in our family slept well in the beds provided and we had all the cooking utensils we needed as well as many cooking essentials such as oils, spices, and condiments. A variety of games and movies kept us entertained (late into the night thanks to Monopoly :-) when we chose to have some downtime. Thank you Evans family for sharing this little piece of heaven!

--You will rent this house if: your like to live in a house with mice where you can be infected; or trying to wash your clothes stumbling down on terribly steep stairs to flooded stinky basement. Steps upstairs and downstairs are not done by code, so do not break your legs. You will sleep in outdated hammock called master bedroom bed. The same with pull out couch. You can see mice running when you in the first floor bathroom or in the kitchen. House is filled up with old broken furniture. Owner called this "antique", and he will charge you for repairs, so forget about your security deposit. Plus the owner was very rude. Tcherniak Family

This is a wonderful rental, with an open floor plan, lots of natural light and plenty of room for everyone. The home is in a wonderful location (just a short walk to the beach) . It is also well organized (sheets shorted by bed, etc.) and outfitted from kitchen utensils to beach chairs to towels and pillows. Paul was great to work with throughout the rental process and went the extra mile when clothes were inadvertently left behind. We hope to be back again next summer. Mary P.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the school house. There was plenty of space for the eight of us. The kitchen was very well equipped and having a washer and dryer there was a definite plus! The yard was great for game playing in the evening. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone and hope to stay again in the future.

We had a wonderful week at the school house. It was close to a few different lakes that were a short drive. The walk to Lake Michigan was short and fun to watch the sunset and to swim. The schoolhouse had a lot of seating and was peacefully set back in the woods but not too far to get essentials we forgot. Loved it!

It’s such a nice house, with all the amenities you’d ever need for a family vacation. You can walk to Lake Michigan in about five minutes, and everyone in the area always waves and says hello like you’ve been there before. Everything about the house and the area is just like one of those Tim Allen commercials, pure Michigan. We will definitely be returning next summer!
