Stayed he weekend with our adult hockey team as we played in a tournament in south bend. The house is the nicest one of the block that we could see and the lake access is phenomenal. The amenities are more than we were used to with the kayaks and paddle boat access. The property is safe and you have plenty of space to yourself inside and out and it fits as many guests as you need. We had an amazing time and Ann was a great host. The house definitely has a lot of family memories so make sure you take care of it! Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Any uncertainty you have, forget it. It's worth it. Thanks again!

I brought my salon staff to this house for our annual retreat. The house had all the amenities we needed- cooking supplies, utensils, towels, rafts, a kayak and paddle boat. There were 12 of us and it was a little tricky to sleep all 12. The pull out couch was uncomfortable so the girls ended up just sleeping on the sofas in the living room. Would have been nice to have one or 2 more air mattresses. The lake the house is on is beautiful and was nice to swim and float around in. The outdoor space is ample and we had enough room for 12 of us to play outside. We did receive a complaint from the host that the neighbors thought we were too loud during the day, so if you have a big group of people that want to get a little rowdy, this may not be the house for you. Otherwise everything was great- check in and check out were easy. Thanks Ann and David!

We loved the lake and the distance to travel to the cottage was perfect for a short weekend family trip. We were however a bit disappointed with the overall condition of the cottage. While the cottage is very expansive and can hold a lot of people we just felt for the price paid it should have been better kept up maintenance wise and overall cleaner.

The lake house was perfect for a nice getaway with friends. The pictures actually don't do it justice. The place is much bigger than we anticipated and the yard is much bigger as well. The lake is super nice with a sandy bottom. We had 10 guys total and we all slept comfortably. I would definitely recommend it!

We had a great stay at David and Ann's lake house, and were sad to leave! It was the perfect setting for our gathering of 12 friends, who came from Detroit and Chicago. Very spacious, and the lake is just steps from the back porch. Kayak, inner tubes, fire pit, grill = perfect weekend. The decor, as you can see from the photos, is a little quirky, but very homey. We loved it!

We had 14 family members spending two nights at the lake house plus several more visiting during the first day. It did not feel crowded at all! The house is very spacious with lots of places to gather and chat. Beautiful weather allowed us to spend much of the time outdoors enjoying the lake--swimming, kayak, and paddle boat. The hosts were kind, punctual and informative. The house decor and furniture, although somewhat dated, was very clean and comfortable. we would stay there again.

Loved this place! The pictures do not capture how big the place is. Plenty of room for 10 of us that stayed! Access to a kayak and paddle boat with plenty of outdoor space with a fire pit. Would definitely recommend for a quiet get away and want to come back soon!
