Home away from Home!!
Great house with lots of room and a great homey feeling. Everything is setup well and the huge living room is great for relaxing in. Huge TV is great and is nice to watch a movie on with your family to relax. Nice quiet neighborhood with nice friendly neighbors. Didn't get to use the firepit due to the weather but will next time when we book again! Close enough to town but far away enough to not see/hear the hustle and bustle.

Great place to stay in Escanaba
This rental is a complete 3 bedroom ranch house with recently remodeled kitchen and updated furniture. The house was very clean and the kitchen had all the necessary utensils. The use of the two car garage was a nice feature as we wanted to store the jet skis indoors. The only minor quibbles was the strange kitchen layout with a bottleneck between the refrigerator and counter and the non-intuitive key less door lock. The house is located in a quiet sub-division and about 5-6 miles from the closest boat ramp and about the same distance to down town.

Mike, thanks for taking the time to write this review,  We really enjoyed hosting you and hope to work with you again!

Jake, we are happy to hear that you had an excellent experience at Greenwood Getaway.  There is nothing better than to be able to have our pups join us on vacations, and Greenwood Getaway is dog friendly.  Also Lake Michigan beaches are fun to walk in the winter months, and guests are only 8 miles from the beach.  We hope to see you back again!

Great Thanksgiving
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was accurately described, cozy, and equipped with everything you’d need to feel comfortable. Seems the last guests didn’t do their part to take care of the home, but it’s of no fault of the property managers. I’d recommend staying here and book here again.

FVR response:
Eric, happy thanksgiving a few days late!  We are so happy that Greenwood Getaway worked out so well for your family's Thanksgiving getaway.  A short drive to Lake MIchigan and dog friendly, this cottage sleeps 6.  We hope to work with you again.

Making Memories at this beautiful getaway
The best part of our stay was playing golf in the UPLGA W.E.C.C. and making memories at this beautiful getaway. We recommend the Stone House for dinner and a fire in the fire pit!

Couldn't be any better! The hosts thought of everything that we could possibly need. The beds were comfortable, and the house well equipped and exquisitely clean. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars

“Great place for a family to stay! Very kid-friendly and well-equipped for preparing meals after exploring Escanaba. The neighborhood is very quiet and the backyard was big enough to feel like you had some privacy which was a huge plus. My kids loved the playground, the scooters and toys and we all loved the fire pit. The hosts thought of everything--from toiletries and a well-stocked pantry (spices, oils, seasoning packets for meals, etc.) to a bin full of S'Mores supplies, we truly felt taken care of. Would definitely recommend staying here.”

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Becka, thanks for taking the time to write this lovely review.  There is so much to do at this home located in the heart of the Upper Peninsula.  We're hoping you used the s'mores supplies!  We'd love to work with you again.

We really enjoyed staying at Freshwater. The house is super clean and a lot of dish and silverware were available to use. The rooms are spacious the beds and most importantly the pillows are great, so no neck-ache or headache for us. I recommend staying in the fresh water to whoever want to go to UP.

5 stars!!! Very clean, spacious and very comfortable, especially the Beds! Lots of amenities in this newly renovated home! We enjoyed the big back yard, watching the deer and hummingbirds, the kids had lots of room to run, play on the jungle gym and tree swings and in the kids section in the basement! Lots of fun nights around the fire pit with s'mores too! Loved that it was close to Escanaba AND Gladstone- we checked out the beaches and restaurants! Thank you for a wonderful place to stay! Great customer service through Freshwater as well! ~Ray M.

Greenwood Getaway
Greenwood Getaway offered a home away from home. We enjoyed having our fur baby with us during our vacation and appreciated the doggie goodies left by the owner. The owners had thought about everything from labeling lights and remotes to having information regarding current events nearby. The house was very clean and well taken care of by the owner. The beds were extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend.

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Tina, isn't it great to take our fur babies with us on vacation!  We're so glad that you enjoyed Greenwood Getaway.  The close proximity to Lake Michigan is a bonus, plus if guests need to work, there is a designated work space with technology all ready for them.  With the local bike and walking trails, golf courses, cross country ski trails, good food, friendly people and the many events, you are sure to enjoy your stay here! We hope to see you again!

“We were the first renters to stay here. Everything was renovated and new. There were a few things that we opened so it definitely confirms that we were the first users there. It was very clean, beautiful, spacious, and very accommodating. I would definitely come back here again and I would highly recommend this to anybody that wants to stay in this location. And most importantly I was very impressed and thankful for the quick responses when we needed to communicate throughout our stay.”

FRESHWATER RESPONSE:
Paoline, we love that you were our first guest at Greenwood Getaway!  Thank you for this great review and for commenting on our customer service.  We strive to make our guests' stay the very best it can be.  Being only 8 miles from Lake Michigan is an added bonus for this lovely property.  We look forward to working with you again soon.
