The location was great being only 2.5 hours away from our suburban home outside Chicago. The property is right on the lake and features plenty of room and expansive sand beach front and a private dock. The house itself was more than accommodating for our family of 5. We also invited our entire family, wife and my side up during our stay. Plenty of bedrooms and we took advantage of the additional attic space to comfortably sleep additional family member. The amenities were great including a large eat in kitchen right off a huge family room. The additional fridge in the basement allowed for overflow for the large group we had. The fishing off the dock was great as my son was introduced to croppy and large mouth bass. We were able to rent a pontoon boat that we took out on the large lake. The front yard had a play set for the kids to enjoy. The fire pit off the side of the house allowed for smokes and some great late night conversation once the kids went to be!!!!! What a great stay and time we all had and we look forward to making a tradition out of this. We truly appreciate the opportunity to make some unbelievable memories and look forward to making more.
Rented this home with another couple for a family reunion. It's an incredible place to get a few families together and "hang out"! It quaint and cozy and really close to a few convenient markets to pick up stuff during your stay. It's also in close walking distance to a great little golf course. The deck looks out over the beautiful lake and makes a great place to watch kids playing on the shore or the ducks toddling by! They've got a great long pier, great for fishing and/or water sports. I couldn't recommend a better place to hang with 2 families (we very comfortably had 8 people there). I wish we could have gone back there this year, but our family travel plans took us elsewhere this year. We'll DEFINITELY go back again next year. Lori is very communicative and responsive. I would absolutely recommend this place!!!
We have rented this property on several occasions and always come back. Can't beat the views and the home has all the amenities of home. Great place to meet for your family reunion as it sleeps so many ! Never a lack of things to do and the nearby town is a great place to get Dairy Queen and catch a movie at the Loma. Highly recommend!!
This cottage is absolutely amazing and the view can't be beat! I came up for a regular, fun weekend on the lake and ended up getting surprised with an engagement. My entire family surprised me and the cottage was able to comfortably accommodate all of them! We had so much fun that weekend hanging at Paw Paw Lake, picking apples at a nearby orchard, going into downtown St. Joe and checking out places in Watervliet. I would highly recommend staying here - it has been almost a year since that weekend and we are still talking about it. We are planning on visiting again soon!
