Wonderful as always
This is our 3rd stay here and we plan to keep coming back - it's just the perfect experience to bring family of all ages together. Safe, comfortable, well-decorated and appointed inside and beautiful setting with great water access and views outside. Melissa is always great to work with. We love it!

This property was clean, well-stocked with kitchenware, towels, water toys, outdoor space, and of course the lake. There was nothing I needed that I didn't find in the house. The location is great for running, bike riding, hiking, walking and water sports. The neighbors are friendly, and the home feels safe and cozy. Communication with the owners was easy and pleasant, there were no problems or issues. This was the best VRBO stay I have ever had. I will come back, given the opportunity.

Such a great place to spend time on the chain of lakes. The hostess, Melissa, is very attentive. The place has everything you need to have a great stay at this cottage. The kayaks and stand up paddle board are perfect… especially if you don’t rent a pontoon or bring your own boat. The only thing we had a small problem with was that the owner’s dog beds were left in the master closet. Since we aren’t dog people, we aren’t used to the smell. We could not use the closet but luckily we didn’t need the 3rd bedroom so we used that closet. Other than that, the place was very clean and well appointed. Would recommend.

My husband, best friends, and our godson (toddler) absolutely loved our stay! Melissa was so available and the cottage is beautifully renovated. There were loads of linens and everyday items for vacationing (pots, pans, coffee, toiletries, etc.). The access to the lake is incredible and the fire pit made for enjoyable Michigan nights (and s’mores!). We would absolutely recommend Melissa’s lake house to friends and family!
