Wonderful week on the lake!
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!

Beautiful lakeside cottage
This location is gorgeous and even with snow on the ground and below freezing temperatures it was a perfect retreat for my 78 yo mom and I. Everything we needed and more. I can image it is pure heaven in the summer for families with kids. Melissa was easy to communicate with and made everything easy.

Reunion at the lake house
Cozy comfortable cottage on the lake was a perfect place for our family reunion. We especially enjoyed the lovely sunsets on the water. Everything was great!

Great Place
This is our third visit to Blue Turtle Cottage and it WILL NOT be our last. We are already making plans for a week next summer. Melissa goes beyond to make sure everything is perfect. The kitchen is the best equipped I have ever seen. The addition of the half bath just off the living room was great. Now when the grand boys come in off the beach, they go straight there to get the sand off their hands and arms. No more going through the house to the full bath. The added bonus are the water toys! Can’t keep the kids (and their parents) off or out of the water. Thank you Melissa for a dream cottage!

Just perfect
The family stayed last year and we loved it so much we came back, and it was just as wonderful. Can’t think of a single thing to improve. Thank you and hope to return next summer!

A Fabulous Family Vacation
Our family had a great time on our recent vacation at the Blue Turtle. Melissa was the perfect hostess & the lake house had everything needed for an absolutely wonderful stay. The accommodations were very comfortable, clean, and well designed. The lake was shallow for quite a distance and perfect for our young children (ages 6 & 7) to swim. We enjoyed using the paddleboard, kayaks & canoe on the property. We all loved that we could bring our family dog on the trip since the property was fully fenced. He also had a great time swimming in the lake. Overall, a fabulous family vacation & we hope to return one day soon.

BEST STAY EVER!
Our family had such a wonderful time! Melissa thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable, comfortable and fun! The house itself is beautiful, clean, and had everything stocked that we might have forgotten. You can tell that Melissa, herself, walked through the experience as a guest and made sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves on her beautiful property. The lake is large enough to enjoy boating but small enough to not get lost and let our kids hang in the shallow areas that extend for a great period beyond the house's adorable man-made, sandy beach. The fenced-in yard is amazing-- our dog LOVED the freedom! We made lots of beautiful memories and would love the chance to do it again next year!
