Best Little Beach House EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from June 17-27, 2017. The house was recently remodeled and fresh and clean. The wall-hangings, decorations, and quilted bedding looked like something out of a beach magazine. The house is listed as a two-bedroom (both bedrooms with windows facing the lake); however, it is MORE than a two-bedroom, as there is also a loft upstairs that has two twin beds and a window. Both of the actual bedrooms have doors for privacy. The house has 3 HUGE bathrooms - two with showers - and there were lots of towels, too. There is also a top-of-the-line washer/drier combo in one of the bathrooms. The kitchen is very well-stocked with an electric stove, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, dishes, glasses, pots, pans, etc. The living room is perfect - lots of seating and a huge tv on the wall over a gorgeous fireplace. The sunroom facing the lake was my favorite place in the house - 3 walls of windows with screens. This place was above and beyond for a beach rental - wine and snacks on the table waiting for us, board games in the closet, a fire pit out by the lake, beach chairs in the boat house, etc.

The house is located in a very safe area (I know this because my dad lives a couple miles down the same road). Because of that, we felt comfortable leaving our bedroom windows open at night (although we closed the sunroom up and locked the doors). And, guess what? The house is close enough to the lake, and the lake has just enough personality, that you can clearly hear the lake at night through the open bedroom window.

This part of Lake Huron is in a cove. That means that the water is more shallow and calm here, making it perfect for kayaking and swimming. You have to go quite a ways out to get over your waist. The beach is golden sand with lots of sunshine. There is a wooded lot next to the house, so you have lots of privacy to wear your swimsuit. There are also birds and wild turkeys that live in the lot next door.

This house does not have air conditioning. We opened windows and caught the lake breeze and were comfortable. The showers are small, so if you are a larger person, that might be a problem. Honestly though, those are the only two minor things I can think of that were not positive.

Yes, this house and the beach and lake are REALLY as great as I described! We did not know the owners, but we found they were very easy to work with and responsive. Will we stay there again? You bet'cha!

Good spot ~!~!~!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home with everything needed already there. Especially nice was the empty wooded lot next door and being Oct., all the locals were also gone. Had the entire area to ourselves. Quiet ~!~!~! Loved the front, cedar paneled room----great place to read. No issues what-so-ever.

  • 5 of 5

We visited with friends for the weekend and had an amazing time. The beach front was beautiful and water is shallow for my kids to play. Very clean and cozy! Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Also it was close to Tawas for a night out to dinner and we also went canoeing in the Rifle River. Perfect for my family! Will definitely come back.

Just the right size house

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice quiet week. The house was just the right size for 5 adults, although the people sleeping upstairs said it was too hot to sleep well at night. Loved the fire on the beach at night and watching all the fireworks 4th of July week. Pleased to find a place that would allow us to bring our dog.
