Grocery Store:  5 miles away.

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 $50/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.

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!
