Perfect balance of old school cottage charm with some modern updates thrown in!
Highlights: * Owners were highly responsive * Activities for all ages - kids / parents / grandparents * West facing -> beautiful sunsets * Three decks - some shaded, big sandy beach, and a dock for securing a boat * Friendly neighbors on both sides * Reliable internet service for the couple of times my "day job" needed attention * Golfing and restaurant nearby When I think of vacationing "up north" I get nostalgic for a simpler time when my grandparents would host the family at some rustic fishing cabins on South Manistique Lake in Curtis, MI during the late 60's and early 70's. This cottage with its knotty pine board walls/cupboards, mature trees, and proximity to the lake took me back to those times. We booked an end of summer stay with our daughter/son-in-law and two grandchildren ages 2 & 4. The cottage was a perfect setting for all three generations to bond in an environment reminiscent of my childhood. The first impression after stepping into the kitchen and seeing the decks/beach/dock through the living room window was WOW! Having stayed at multiple northern Michigan lake house rentals, the Lockwoods have by the far the best appointed cottage of any we've stayed. From little things like a salad spinner, griddle, cutting boards, and an abundance of silverware including modern sharp knives in the kitchen, to bigger things like tastefully updated bathrooms, ample deck chairs and tables, grille with backup propane tanks, a huge beach, beach toys & games for kids/adults, and the best fishing spot in the lake is right off the end of the dock - the Lockwoods had everything covered. Their attention to detail translated into a very relaxing, enjoyable stay for our family. Thank you for opening your vacation home up for others to enjoy!
