The description of the property is accurate. The owner is open about the condition and location of the rental. The home is older and has some wear and tear. It was clean and had plenty of space. The paddle boards and kayaks are a bit on the worn side but a hose down would probably make them more appealing. There is no AC. We knew this when booking. We visiting on some 90 degree days and although the upper level got hot...Kevin had provided fans and we brought our own. The evening cooled down the house. The breezeway area was nice for sitting and relaxing. We are a family of seven on a tight budget and this rental fit the bill.
It was a block from Bear Lake so the kids got to dip in the lake and do some shore fishing. My husband took the kayak out for an evening paddle. Our main reason for the trip was to float/paddle the Platte River and this rental was a quick drive. It's also an easy trip to the Sleepy Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
Kevin was accommodating to our needs and answered any questions we had. We would stay again.

I enjoyed everything about this spacious home with covered parking.
The location is walking distance to the lake and restaurants. A Short drive to the Crystal Mountain, and casino. Incredible fishing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, hiking, and amazing sunsets endless activities.
I planned on staying a week this past summer and it turned into three months.
I came back for this winter and thoroughly enjoyed this home and the small town experience.
The host is very helpful, attentive and even kept the walk and driveway clear of snow. The wi-fi was always reliable too.

Scheduled a quick ski trip to Crystal Mountain with friends. Needed a place to sleep and eat. This property was perfect and just what we needed. Owner was very helpful and accommodating. Traveled with 3 teens and 4 adults.
