A place to relax
Cottage Sankofa had us pleasantly surprised. It is literally a home away from home, it has everything you wanted at home and none of what you didnt want. The beautiful beach is a hop skip and jump from the front yard. Beyond the backyard, the area is wooded and shady, we didnt see any deer, but we did see a fox. The house is very thoughtfully furnished and tastefully decorated. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The appliances and the supplies in the kitchen and bathroom were of the very best quality, the kind you would love to have in your own home. The house has an excellent grill and a really awesome firepit. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a great meal. Everyone will enjoy the nice collection of books and then there is cable TV and even a small DVD library. If you really feel like working, you have internet access and a phone line too! The Muskegon lighthouse is a short walk away, the USS Silversides submarine is a couple of minutes drive away and there are biking trails that you can get on to right from the house. In all, it is a perfect place to relax, to spend time with the kids, to perfect your art of grilling and building sand castles and for everyone to have a great time! The three of us had a tough time leaving after 4 days here and our three year old had the time of her life. Denise was a pleasure to deal with and was very thoughtful and accomodating of our needs.
