Reviews for this vacation cottage rental in Grand Rapids, Michigan
A Wonderful Weekend
October 23, 2014
My brother and I ran the Grand Rapids marathon the weekend of October 18-20, and were lucky enough to find this gem for our families to stay at. The home is beautifully decorated and warm, while quite modern and updated. The 2 stories, 3 beds and 2 baths were plenty of room for us 5 adults and 2 kids under the age of three to spread out. We loved that there were lots of toys for the kids to play with. The scenery out back is stunning, postcard worthy. We got a couple of early morning shots of the sun rising over the misty water, with the colourful trees bordering the lake....it's really something to see. On top of how great the house was, Lesa was friendly and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in the area. It's 5-10 mins from grocery stores and restaurants, and 20 mins or so to downtown Grand Rapids. We may even be back next year for another marathon :) Thank you Lesa!

No complaints. Beautiful inside and out. I went with 3 of my girlfriends to celebrate our 40th birthdays and it was perfect. I would definitely come back with my family it's perfect for kids too. Thank you Lesa
July 31, 2014
This was our second time to stay in Lesa's perfect cottage. It exceeded our expectations both times. Thank you for letting us stay so we can visit family on the big lake. It is now a little home away from home for us!

We were very pleased with our stay. it was a very good experience. Every thing was clean and comfortable and there were more things there that we did not think would be there for us to use. I would rank this a 5 star experience. When we vacation again we will use your services.

This rental is updated and Clean! We had a three day girls weekend and plenty of room for six of us. Very user friendly and beautiful views! Downtown Rockford was fun and beautiful to visit. About a 25 minute drive to downtown Grand Rapids. Will be contacting again! Melissa

Found this place at the last minute and was sure glad I did! Lesa was able to accomodate us on a weeks notice. Stayed Friday and Saturday night but spent most of the day/ night Saturday in Grand Rapids, which was only about a 20 minute drive. Stopped by downtown Rockford Friday and wish I had more time to explore, it's a very cute town. The house exceeded my expectations, loved all the decorations/ personal touch as well as up to date appliances and furnishings. Would love to check it out in the summer sometime. I would definately stay here again!

What a wonderful and relaxing time! The cottage was very clean and quiet! We vacationed with our mom and dad from London, Ontario, Canada and celebrated our daughters 4th birthday. We all enjoyed ourselves completely! Thank you very much for accommodating our early arrival and recommending we get a birthday cake from Arnies, it was the best! Again, thank you so much!!!

Family and Fun!
August 6, 2013
Our extended family recently spent a week at Lakefront Serenity. In our family group was a four year old and a two month old baby. The owner, Lesa, could not have been more helpful in terms of providing baby equipment and toys for our grandson! She was also extremely good about communication and suggestions for things to do in the area. The cottage is a nice little place, great for six people, the nicely finished basement giving us room to spread out. The only thing we really missed was a washer and dryer. I can highly recommend this property if you are looking for quiet, relaxation, and some family fun!
quiet and relaxing

My husband, daughter, son in law and I had an enjoyable week in the cottage. We enjoyed using the paddleboat and the kayaks. We really enjoyed the town of Rockford, they had live music two nights. The restaurants were very good, my husband lived the ice cream shops. We also took in a Minor league ball game. It was a great place to do it all. Thanks for letting us enjoy your home.

Great week-before-the-wedding locale
June 27, 2013
Our daughter wed in Grand Rapids and for the week before the wedding we had arevolving door of friends and relatives who viisted with us at the lakeside home. Evening drinks with marshmallows and latenight swim. Daily, new folks visiting and some staying over. The place was exactly as described and Lesa could not have been any more helpful. She and her home are a joy. The morning of the wedding we had 11 bridesmaids attend a prewedding "makeup" in the living room with artists etc The unit had more than enough room and with good weather we enjoyed use of the deck and the lakeside lawn. Lots to do here. Lots of space to do nothing here.Cant go wrong with this rental. We look forward to returning.
Thank you, David. I'm glad you found a place close to your daughter and new son-in-law. This will be the perfect place to entertain the grand babies (when they arrive!!) We would love to have you back and look forward for your return. We are open year round, so if you need a place to stay over the holidays, just give us a jingle!
A Wonderful Experience!
June 15, 2013
We recently stayed at this beautiful home in Rockford, MI, while attending a family event. The house was perfect for our needs, with comfortable furniture and beds, and lots of cooking supplies in the kitchen. Our grandson spent hours fishing off the dock and had such fun while there. Though we never had the pleasure of meeting Lesa or Tom, we appreciated all the work they had done to the home during the renovation. The well water was not to our liking, so we bought some bottled water, but other than that, everything was perfect. Do not hesitate to rent this property, whether you have children or not, there is something for everyone. I wish we could have stayed much longer. Everyone we encountered while there was friendly and helpful. Thanks for a marvelous stay!
Thanks Ron & Patt for staying at our cozy little cottage. We are glad it worked well for you with the little one's as well. I wish it was a nice hot week for you, but glad you made the best of it! Please come back and see us again ~ we would love to have you (and maybe we can meet this time!!)

I rented this property for a bridal shower brunch that I threw for my friend and it was absolutely perfect! The house was beautiful and Lesa was incredibly helpful and sweet!! The kitchen was stocked with every cooking gadget imaginable and the bedrooms were huge with comfortable beds. I can't stress again how beautiful and charming everything was. The bride was so happy with everything. I would recommend this property to everyone wanting a beautiful house for a getaway. Thanks Lesa!!

Charming home and hostess
March 12, 2013
This small home is artistically decorated and very comfortable. It was great for the girlfriends weekend for five of us. Lamps for reading (all lights are overhead) and a dining table are all that is missing. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back for another get away.
Cozy, convenient cottage
February 12, 2013
This cottage was a perfect place for a recent trip to snowboard at Cannonsburg Ski Area. Lesa was helpful, before, during and after our stay. The place is immaculate, yet cozy. Stayed during the heart of winter but loved coming back from the slopes each day to this place of comfort and serenity. The furniture and beds were very comfortable, especially for my sore bones after a full day on the slopes. I highly recommend this place to anyone, anytime of year. Perfect location to everything you need, yet remote enough to feel like a vacation spot. Great stay. Great people. Thanks.
We were soo glad the mini-blizzard of 2013 came at perfect timing for your snowboarding trip with your niece. Beautiful sky's, temp's and all-around beautiful weekend! Come and see us, anytime...Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter...We are just a phone call away! Thanks Again! You guys are awesome! Tom & Lesa
November 13, 2012
This was truly a memorable girls weekend, my girls friends and I travel quiet a bit and this quiet time away from the rush of daily life was made extra special by Lesa....she put no restrictions on us and allowed us to come early and stay late! I truly appreciate her hospitality....she also informed us on some pretty cool things to do while visiting Grand Rapids....if you are looking for a comfortable, cozy place to go and relax off the water...this is the place. Thanks Lesa

My family traveled to Rockford for the Keech family reunion. The Keech family hails from the Myers family that the lake is named for. I loved the comfy house and my daughter loved playing with the toys. We were able to use the dock for our boat that we used to catch a few bass while out and about. I was catching blue gill after blue gill right off the dock! My boys loved paddling around iin the kayacks and my favorite thing was lounging on the deck taking in the view! Thank you for sharing your home with us and allowing us to have a fantastic vacation.
We were so happy to be able to accomodate your family for your reunion! You couldn't have asked for a better location to be near your Myers Lake Family. Please come back and see us anytime! The basement will be finished w/in the next week, opening up a lot more space! Enjoy this beautiful fall day!!

Would love to return!

We had a fantastic time in the cottage. The location on the lake was fabulous as were the views from the living room and huge balcony. We had the delights of the autumn colours but missed the heat a little. We would love to come back in the warmer months so we could make use of the garden, beach, lake and canoes. I highly recommend this place, especially if you have children. Lesa had everything set up for our little one including a place to sleep, high chair and lots of toys. We didn't bring any of the bulky things we would normally have to bring for the little one :-) Thanks again Lesa for making our stay a thoroughly enjoyable one
Thanks for the kind words! You difinitely get the award for "Traveled The Farthest", coming from London! We're so glad you enjoyed Michigan with your wife and little Sebastian. We would love to have you back this summer to enjoy the lake and beach. Let's keep in touch!

Our Family had a wonderful time at the Rockford cottage. Even though the weather wasn't as warm as we hoped we were able to enjoy the lake and the little beach was perfect for the kids. It was great not having to worry about bringing all the kids toys, pack n' play, etc., since it was all already there. The cottage was the perfect weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Downtown Rockford had great shopping and dinning options as well. The entire family had an amazing time and we made some great family memories. We will absolutely be back again!!!!!

I was fortunate to spend a weekend at this beautiful, CLEAN,quiet cottage with all the comforts of your own home. TThe graciousness of the owners thought and preperation for what is important for a wonderful experience shows in every aspect of the cottage. Inside and outside. I plan to visit again . A winter weekend is very inviting ! Anne M.

My husband & I stayed here for our anniversary getaway and had a such a relaxing stay. My husband used one of the kayaks and went for a trip around the lake. I stayed in and enjoyed the lovely view and Lesa's flair for decorating. The house was wonderful, as was the host. Lesa makes you feel like you are visiting an old friend. Everything you could ask for (and more) has been thoughtfully provided. The property is easy to find and located in a lovely, quiet area. We visited Grand Rapids, Holland, Grand Haven and Muskegon from the house. Easy day trip. I am already planning a girls' getaway in a few weeks and can't wait to get back. This will definitely be a regular rental for us. Thank you, Lesa!
Debbie and Jimmy ~ I'm so glad you were able to get away together for your anniversary, and super happy you enjoyed your stay!! Thank you for the kind words ~ I look forward to seeing you next week (and, by the way.... the family and I did a "sneak-peak" of ArtPrize yesterday, and it is fabulous ~ You girls will love it!!) See you soon :))

WHAT A FIND!!!!
January 20, 2012
What a perfect find on "Vacation Home Rentals". We just returned from spending a few days in this lovely Lakefront Winter Cottage and enjoyed every minute of it. Lisa is a very wondeful hostess who provided extra luxuries that we would never have expected. She went above and beyond to be sure we were comfortable and content. The cottage itself was newly remodeled, clean, and inviting. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to get away to consider this cute cottage. We went in the winter months, and summer would be a real treat enjoying the lake. Thank you Lesa for offering us your place. We will spread the good word.

Gotta love it

I went there with my wife and 2 months old daughter... I didn't believed that I would have much fun because it is winter already and its cold outside The first thing I notice the place was warm (I was worried about my daughter) , everything is in new condition and well decorated ... My wife loved the kitchen she even decided to have the exact one when we go back to home... the lake view is amazing ... the swans give additional pleasure .... The hospitality of the owener is something I highly appriciated ... I already recommend the place to my friends and If ihad a chance to go there again before leaving US ,I would do it

Close to everything, and far enough away to make it a great escape. We enjoyed several nice campfires, fished off the dock and paddleboat. The house is very tastefully decorated and the main floor open kitchen and living room is well thought out. Nice personal touches without being fussy. Comfy funiture too! The deck is huge with fabulous views of the lake. We were there in late August so the evenings were pleasant enough to have the two lake facing sliding screen doors open. Made for wonderful sleeping....and even an afternoon nap. The lake activity was quiet overall with only a few folks out on the water. The home owner was wonderful to work with and went above and beyond to ensure we had a nice private setting with all the extras. Fabulous folks to work with. We truly enjoyed ourselves....it's the kind of place you can feel right at home at and we did.

We had a wonderful time at the lakeside cottage. The deck was perfect for sitting and chilling and enjoying the view of Little Lake Myers. We talked and laughed and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect. The kitchen was very well stocked and the beds were comfortable. The couch was big enough to slepp on and since there were 5 of us one of us did. The town of Rockford has many cute little shops and Grand Rapids is 10-15 minutes away and we did some shopping and checked out some museums. The vacation house is very open and spacious, great set up for conversation and a nice bar to eat at, as well as a table out on the deck. Thank you Lesa, we had a loveley time! We will definately keep you in mind for our next girls weekend!! ~Kristi

We had a wonderful stay. The cottage is comfortable and beautifully updated with a great deck to enjoy relaxing and BBQ with family. It was nice to have some air conditioning to seek refuge from the hot humid summer days. Lesa and Tom were very accommodating; esp since we booked at the last minute! The fireworks were amazing during the 4th of July weekend!
