Wonderful Rental - Highly Recommended!
My first impression of the cottage was how clean it was. The owners really have taken the time to make sure it is in proper order. The kitchen was great, with a newer flat top stove, microwave (over the range), sink (with water filtration under, for drinking/cooking), and full size side-by-side refrigerator. The kitchen is also well stocked with pots, pans, silverware, kitchen utensils and plenty of knives. The living room has two nice rocker/recliners and a couch. The flat screen TV is mounted on the wall in the corner and comes with DirecTV, with many channels. The TV is probably a 32" I would guess and it could be a little larger, but it did the job just fine! The bathroom is functional with a vanity and tub/shower. The water pressure was great, which is important! The bedrooms were identical, other than the one having a small TV. Beds (I think doubles or queens) are comfortable. We loved that the cottage had a furnace, as it was chilly one of the days we were up. There is also a pellet burner in the living room, which works well. The fire pit is out front and was great to have. A picnic table is next to the pit. Things I would recommend bringing: your own chairs for sitting by the fire. The kitchen has no salt/pepper or condiments. Also there is no cleaning spray for the stove/counters, etc. They do supply dish soap. So a bottle of Windex or whatever would be nice to have there for use. Craig the owner stopped in to check on things and is a very nice guy to deal with and was very helpful. The lot is a block off the water, just a few minute walk down. It was nice to have a boat to use, even though we didn't get out as much as we'd like due to the weather. The area was quiet, but there are houses all around you. So if you want total privacy, this isn't the house for you. I would highly recommend this rental if you are looking for something in the area. Its only a short drive into Rose City or Mio, which should have everything you need. Lakes and trials and the Ausable river are nearby for outdoor adventures.
