Hi Jeff,
Please use the below message as my recommendation on your vacation home.

Dear Jeff,
My whole family thanks you for providing a clean and inviting home to share on our first ever Michigan family vacation. The house was exactly as promised and just a short dune walk to the lake. We spent many nights on the deck and viewed the sunset along with the wonderful lake breezes. The grandchildren collected acorns and pine cones by the dozens as remembrances and all of us loved the location. Many thanks and we hope to come back soon!
Marynell Mayfield.

What a very nice week our family enjoyed at the lake this summer. The children tried fishing for the very first time, we spent hours on the gorgeous beach building sandcastles and bodysurfed on the frothy white capped waves. We really liked telling stories around the campfire and roasting some "mallows" under the star-filled night sky.

Over coffee one morning we saw a doe beside the house searching for breakfast and had quite a start, when we discovered an Eastern Hognose snake by the drive. Thankfully, he was a harmless creature and added some excitement to our adventure at the beach. The squirrels were quite busy in the yard and trees with the plentiful acorns, as well.

The house was quite spacious and accommodated our family of 7, and 2 grandparents quite nicely. We enjoyed going into town on the walking/biking trail and playground one day. And we stole away to the amusement park for a day to enjoy the coasters and kiddie circle rides. We did walk down to the Inn for dinner one evening, and enjoyed the sunset upon our return.

What a pleasant, restful time away from the daily hub-bub. Many thanks for a delightful week.

This year we found a Vacation spot worthy of return. Quaint 1 traffic light town of MONTAGUE hosting the World's largest Weather vane. Juncture of large White Lake and the great beach at LAKE MICHIGAN , and not so close we have to worry about the little ones wandering off to the Beach alone. A very Private Driveway shared with only 2 McMansions and us enjoying 5/7 Acres at 'THE BIG LAKE'.Lots of sunny and breezy days with Moon and Sun sets as late as 10PM with wonderful clear views of the Stars.
After an early dinner at the Old Channel Inn just down the Beach, slip away for 9-18 hours holes at the picturesque 27 hole Old Channel Trail Golf Course.And if you are willing to leave the Beach or fishing on the Pier in front of the house visit the huge MICHIGAN ADVENTURE AMUSEMENT & WATER PARK only minutes away featuring great discounts, or on a rainy day try the Indoor Water park and Petting Zoo a short trip to Rothbury's JJ RANCH.

Great family vacation spot!

Our family's' week long stay at the beach house was so nice! Great views of both Lake Michigan and White Lake. The house is tucked away in a very peaceful, private wooded setting with a short walk over beautiful grassy dunes to a private beach on L. Michigan, so serene! We loved that the house was stocked with most of our amenities. The homeowner could not have been more nice and accommodating. He called to make sure all was well and suggested some great restaurants and kids activities on days that weren't really "beach weather". So much to do in the area as well! Some really cute boutiques and antique shops in town, very charming! We would definitely recommend renting this house and hopefully we can return again!

I almost hesitate to write this review because I do not want the secret of this great get-away to be divulged. This is a wonderful home set on Lake Michigan with a view of both the Great Lake, inland White Lake, and the channel connecting the two. An easy walk to beautiful white sands beaches on Lake Michigan provides an opportunity to swim in the lake, just sit on the beach and read, or stroll for miles up a beach that reminds me of southern France or San Diego. If you bring a boat or other personal watercraft, there are multiple launches where you can take off and explore White Lake or Lake Michigan. Although we are reluctant to leave our home, we do venture out to visit the Old Channel Inn for an Old Channel Fish Fry or Walleye or to the Harbor View Grill for great foods of all kinds. We have been coming here for ten years and hope to come for another ten for the great weather, beaches, food, and just a chance to relax in time with the rhythm of nature and in the presence of great people. - Binkley Philip

We had a great time at this house there were 10 of us and we all had our own space. The house was very clean and had almost every thing except a TV in the livingroom.

House is not fancy but good bang for the buck for our party (10 people, including 2 grandmothers, 1 baby, 4 & 9-year-olds). Nice location-< 1 mile from Lake MI & 10 minutes to downtown Whitehall. Only two negatives worth mentioning: 1): "master" queen mattress is VERY firm, and 2) FYI light sleepers: house is right on what for the area would have to be considered a main road. Good news is there was little traffic after dark, however cars which do come by are very noticeable, particularly in the front (2 twins) bedroom. Nice, responsive owners.
Jeff K.

Owner's reply:

Thank-you Mr. Spiedel correction on "One Mile from Lake Mi." 7204 House is approx. 300 yards (a short par 4) via path directly over the Dune to Nationally Awarded LAKE MICHIGAN Beach. Also,( main) Lau Rd. is about Qtr. mile long 10MPH Road which dead-ends at the LAKE!
Note: Correction will be made on all Aerial Maps showing the (small) Medberry Park on the White Lake Channel on the wrong side of Lifeguard Rd. There is a 4 Acre unused DNR Buffer Zone posted NO TRESPASSING South of the 2 McMansions and our 7204 Lifeguard Rd.home.

We had a great time. Your home was close to the Lake and very nicely set up for a larger family.Being right on the Lake one could assume there would not be a need for air-conditioning, BUT, this July was noted as unusually hot, and an air conditioning unit was necessary. With windows open, the public park within close proximity was too noisy at night, but there were plenty of fans to drowned out the noise. Overall it was a very nice stay and very affordable.

Great location, great beach, house is fine
Brian McCord

Had a group of four couples staying at the house. The layout was good, with four bedrooms, though the beds aren't the most comfortable, they're ok for a week. The seller is the view from the outdoor deck, where we enjoyed sunsets, lake views, and almost all of our meals in the fresh air. Note - cell phone reception here is spotty at best - you'll likely need to go to town to make calls. And there's one internet router in a downstairs bedroom, but it doesn't support wifi. So internet activity is a one-at-a-time, plug-in affair. I made a reco to the owner to upgrade to a wifi router, which he said he'd consider. Lastly, our group loves to cook, and the kitchen gets a B for that -- it's a bit tight on space, but you'll have a decent selection of pots and pans. The burners on the stove are hit and miss - only a couple of them get really hot. A new stove would be a good upgrade for those looking to make big family dinners while on vacation. If you're a smaller group, or plan to eat out a lot, it's fine. Lastly - the owner is a really nice guy who's helpful if you have any questions or suggestions.
Jeff K.

Owner's reply:

Thanks, Brian, for the suggestions. Research tells us we need a "N" Router. and often the burners become unseated as we clean them every week. We will check heat level.

My husband Norm looked for months in the summer of 2011 for a special place to take me for a nice vacation. We always enjoyed the cabins along Lake Huron but we were never really in love with the beach as much as Lake Michigan. After all the searches he came across the property in Montague and contacted Jeff ( owner). Jeff was very pleasant and easy to deal with so my husband rented out the property. I thought this place was some rinky dink old cabin or something like we had rented in the past. Well I was wrong, we get there and I couldn't believe my eyes! HUGE BEAUTIFUL home footsteps from the beach that we LOVE! We had a WONDERFUL time to say the least!!!!!! The home has a wonderful kitchen so we made all meals and enjoyed them on the large deck over looking the lake. Of course we swam and floated on rafts on mostly private beach. Then to top the night off we stoked up a nice bon fire ON THE BEACH! My husband I just returned from our 2nd trip last weekend and WILL be doing this for years to come! Thank you Jeff! Your home is BEAUTIFUL! Norman and Misty Druce
