Looking to enjoy one last vacation before the end of summer,my wife,15 month old child and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "Rock Shop". We found the description and pictures provided online to be accurate. Bob and his wife were wonderful hosts and were extremely responsive to all inquiries. They went out of there way to make sure we had beach chairs for our visit. All the details were exceptional...from fresh cut flowers, to the high quality finishing in the unit, to the comfortable bed

Being ideally located on the edge of downtown, the unit is very quite at night but close enough so that you can walk to a plethora of great restaurants and bars. Additionally, the west end beach (ideal for young children due to a gradual change in depth) is just across the street! Being avid runners we also found the unit to be ideally located next to the TART trail system. If you have young children, don't miss the Great Lakes Children's Museum, just a short drive up the west side of the bay.

While the unit doesn't have a stove, we brought with us a portable single burner stove and griddle. With this we were able to enjoy hot breakfast each morning as well as nice meals at night (going out every night with a 15 month old isn't the most fun!).

If you're looking for a great deal and don't need a lot of space, this is the place for you. I look forward to returning and recommend it without exception. ENJOY!
