The veranda overlooking Lake Michigan is a dreamy spot to watch the sunset.

Lovely Stay
“There were some unforeseen problems with initial rental we were supposed to stay in, but Freshwater did an excellent job of making it right immediately! Their staff was polite and helpful, and their quick response on finding us a new place to stay, that was an upgrade to a place closer to the water at no extra charge, completely made up for the mistake. We had a lovely stay, and are already thinking about when we could come back!”

Rachel, we are so glad that everything worked out so well for you, and we appreciate your flexibility.  Sunny Daze is a special property on Lake Michigan.  It sleeps 11 and has 2 full kitchens.  Sarett Nature Center is nearby if you are a hiker.

Awesome location and place
Couldn’t ask for a better location, right on the lake with your own beach. There is so much space in and out. It was very clean and well maintained. We loved it and will be back.
