Very nice unit, everything you could need.

  • 4 of 5

Great place and large rooms. Everything provided you could need for a great stay. Unit was very clean and could sleep 6 with comfort. Only draw back was a few to many steps from the street to the 2nd floor unit, so if you have bad knees might not be a good choice. Overall our group plans on staying again love the town and location. Walking distance to restaurants and down town shops make it a perfect place to stay.

We loved our stay in this upstairs space! Beautiful and well maintained with everything our family needed! My five year old especially loved the Murphy bed!

A totally comfortable stay - clean and lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights. Owner Julie was very helpful and accommodating. The rental includes 2 large bedrooms and living room, all nicely decorated and very comfortable, kitchen, bathroom with tub/shower, small interior nook area, and a deck on the front. Location is very close to downtown for restaurants, bars and ice cream, and within a few short minutes to Lake Seguma. A great place to relax with comforts of home. Thanks, Julie!

Shopping trip

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I were looking for somewhere near the Van Buren County shops and this place popped up. It was so much better than a motel room. We didn't spend a lot of time in the space but it certainly had everything we needed. The owner couldn't have been more accommodating. We loved how the older home has been preserved but yet with all the updates "needed" like WiFi and big screen tv for watching the final NCAA game. It was very clean and we felt safe. Julie gave us options of where to visit and where to dine. The only negatives would be the noise from the trucks on highway 1 because it is very near the road and if stairs are a problem for anyone it is on the second floor. The thing I liked best about the stay was the leather couch and recliner in the living room that just allowed you to truly relax! I would definitely recommend it to anyone as a very pleasant place to stay and I would stay again without hesitation.
