Handicap Friendly: Let us explain what we mean by handicap friendly…there is a zero-1 step entry into this home. There are two floors here, but there are bedrooms located on the first floor. The bathrooms and hallways are not up to official handicap standards and do not come equipped with special apparatus to help those in need.

Internet: Yes. It is very Good!

Linens: Yes, we provide your sheets and linens. Just like a hotel, the beds will be made for you upon arrival. If you are fussy about the thread count of your sheets, just let me know, and I’ll make sure we leave a bed open for your sheets. We have just the basic sheets, pillows, pillow cases and bath towels.

Parking: There is enough room for 4 cars or 2 truck/trailer combos

Pets: 2 dogs are welcome! Freshwater Vacation Rentals currently charges $75/per pet for your entire stay. Yes, we do accept dogs, yet we do ask that you please clean up after them both inside and outside the cabin. Plus, if you allow them on the furniture, we do ask that you please bring your own linens/blankets for them to sleep on.  Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we’ll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the water and places to explore. Pet food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed.

Privacy: Homes are right next door.

Seniors:Come one, come all! This space is great for those over 60. Sometimes when renting a home, you are never too sure about the terrain: is the home on top of a hill, is parking on a steep slope, are there 100 steps to the beach or the unit, etc. This home gets the FVR approval for the young at heart!

Snowmobiles:  a person (resident and nonresident) that operates a snowmobile in Michigan is required to purchase a snowmobile trail permit. This is not a “front door-jump on” scenario. Trails are nearby but not local. The trail permit enables snowmobilers to ride state-designated trails and thousands more miles of public roads and on public lands (where authorized). It is valid for one year, which begins Oct. 1 and ends Sept. 30 of the following year. State-designated trails are open Dec. 1-March 31 and grooming occurs when there is enough snow on the ground. Click here to purchase your snowmobile trail permit.

Wonderful spot
This was our second year staying at Eades Escape for a family reunion/vacation. The location is perfect for families with kids—the amazing playground and beach are just steps away and no need to get sand in the car! The house itself is very comfortable with everything we needed, a great fire pit, porch, and yard to play in. Thank you so much!


Thank you for sharing your review Tracy! It is so great to know that your second year was able to live up to all expectations set by your first stay. We love knowing that your family was able to feel comfortable and make great use of the space, and amenities the home provides. We'd love to host you again for a third stay!

Great Stay
Our stay was short but filled with all the comforts of home and more! Great location and with 4 bedrooms, there was plenty of space to share with friends and family.


Hi Jenny, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Eades Escape, and were able to feel at home with the whole family. The way the house is laid out, really does make it a great space for a gathering, especially with the beach being so close! Hopefully we can have you back!

Beautiful and peaceful
The stay at Eden’s escape was beautiful, the only issue we had was the juicer/blender leaked, and when we first got there we couldn’t find the lock box, but when I called they helped out quickly. It was quiet and secluded in which we loved!!! The beds were comfortable and the view was amazing!!! If we could give 10 stars we would!! Thank for the amazing hospitality and customer service we look forward to staying with you all again!!!

Jovita, we love the idea of 10 stars!   We're so happy to know that you had a great stay.  Thank you for your kind words for the FVR staff - that means a lot to us.  We look forward to your return!

What an enjoyable weekend. Eade’s Escape was perfect for our couples get away. Very spacious, plenty of room and so comfortable. We were close to the water and restaurants. We cooked on the grill, had a bonfire, played games so much fun. We will definitely stay again.

Perfect! A great house with a peaceful backyard that is across the street and a short walk to the park! We found the perfect swimming spot in between the house and the actual beach which allowed for privacy. Those with little ones would love the beach at the park. The lake ranged from perfectly still and calm to fun waves and the swimming was amazing. Thank you for an excellent mini-vacation!

Christie, how we love hearing that word "perfect" from our guests in their reviews!  We're glad that you found the perfect swimming spot, and that you could relax in the backyard.  We hope to see you again!
