Difficult Property Owner
We booked a two month stay here while our daughter received medical treatments in Brighton. There were odd issues the first day: a lot of personal items left in the house, open toothpaste, used toothbrush and other bathroom items, food in the refrigerator, a freezer filled with bags of fish, underwear and other clothing in the dresser, a dirty robe in the closet. It was weird, but we decided to ignore it. The house was “recently remodeled” and is definitely a DIY project. Initially the owner was fairly easy to work with, although he did email my personal email asking me to call VRBO for him because he said they weren’t releasing his funds, which seemed inappropriate, but again, we just went with it. Our treatments were cancelled because of COVID-19 and we needed to leave three days early. The owner said he would refund us after he figured out the daily rate. He then became very uncommunicative. We took care of all cleaning while we were there. My husband repaired the stove for him and we also replaced ceiling tiles because the overflow was improperly installed in the tub and water leaked through the ceiling. We informed the owner of this immediately and he said he’s had many issues with the tub and he would just make an insurance claim (he made us buy a policy for our stay). He said he would reimburse us for the ceiling tiles, but hasn’t, which we bought because it seemed suspicious to want to make an insurance claim for two ceiling tiles. After our stay, he made a false claim to the insurance company to get a new cordless dyson vacuum claiming we damaged it. Absolutely untrue. The vacuum was left in the working condition that we found it in. We followed the checkout guide to get a small refund by washing and drying our bedding. The owner has not reimbursed us for any of this. He has been very difficult to work with since we left, claiming that since vrbo reimbursed their service fees, he can’t help us, even though service fees are separate from daily rates. At this point he has stopped responding. Initially I did not plan on disclosing any complaints about our stay, I figured why bother, it was only temporary, but he has been awful to work with and I would not want anyone else to have to go through this.

Ann Arbor Trip
Stayed here on a Thanksgiving family trip visit with our child who is at University of Michigan. Very cozy stay, great for 4-5 people, a couple areas to hang out as a family or have some private time. The house was very clean, sitting right on the lake and kitchen big enough to manage a medium size Thanksgiving meal. We had a couple of very minor issues and Ed responded immediately. A little convenience store with nice wine selection is within medium walking distance (and the folks there treated me like family) and Kroger is 5 mins away. It was a about 25 mins into Ann Arbor so not too bad. We had a great stay.

Perfect weekend getaway
What a beautiful vacation rental property! Amazing Lake views from front and back of home, ample space within and a walk-out basement with cozy fireplace provided a peaceful and warm feel of contentment at it’s best. Welcoming restaurant/bar on the corner within walking distance proved great with friendly staff and good service. A short 20 min drive to downtown AnnArbor was a huge bonus as well. Would highly recommend this rental to anyone visiting Michigan.

Perfect Location & Relaxing Stay
We were visiting for my husband's Class Reunion being held over in Novi. It ended up being the perfect location for us. House is very comfortable and quiet. Waking up to sunrise over the lake was great! Other than the Reunion we stayed put at the house because we had our large dog with us and even he was very relaxed after a few days there. It was gray skies and rainy almost the entire time so we snuggled up with blankets and a fire in the lower floor and enjoyed streaming on the large TV. I saw a few mentions in reviews before I booked that I'll address. Yes, there was a dog outside next door, but it was friendly (even to our 85 lb big dog) and it never barked at all. We had no problems with it. Also, the neighbors that we met were very nice. We had a great stay and appreciate you opening up your lake home.

Great Lake house
Took our three young kids for a weekend away- it was great, we fished off the dock and could catch plenty of fish. Island lake rec area is a nice beach close by.

Not what it appears
The photos of this property are very deceiving! It’s small and covered in cobwebs, dirt and dead plants outside. There’s one, non-working tv in the tiny basement, and the deck is horrible in every way. Not to mention, the fetid-looking lake water and the interesting neighbors, including the giant, barking dog. I could not let my family endure one night there. We went to a hotel.

Up North w/out the drive!
Nice large house right on lake with great fishing. Small market within walking distance if you don’t feel like driving much. My son also frequented the second hand store / fishing gear place on the corner. Real nice people to help kids catch fish. The decks are wonderful and complete with nice Weber gas grill and smoker. (I’d ask cleaners to keep up on the decks a little better.) Enough yard to throw a frisbee. There’s plenty of space of you get stuck inside. Dart board was fun. Kitchen has all the basics and then some. Bedrooms are on 3 separate floors, so may not be great for younger kids that need to be close by, but ideal for extra privacy. Owner was prompt answering questions. Hope to stay again next year.
