Beautiful property and home! We loved every moment of our stay! We used the pontoon, kayaks and paddle board everyday. It was me, my husband, our 3 boys and my parents and we made memories that will last a lifetime!! Every detail has been covered right down to the board games in the event of a rainy day. We played the mega scrabble game every night after dinner and fishing. Thank you again for making our stay one that our family will never forget. And my boys would absolutely recommend Jones ice cream shop in Baldwin to anyone!! We went there 3 times in our week long stay:):).

Gene Riggs

Owner's reply:

House was comfortable and quite attractive, beach and pontoon and kayaks and paddle-board made the stay very enjoyable. Kids and grand-kids spent most of their time on or in the water. Baldwin area was interesting, lots of woods and trails, got out trout fishing once on Pere Marquette River, drove an hour and spent one day at Silver Lake State Park riding the ATVs. Fishing on Reid and Rainbow lakes was good, grandson caught a 21" Largemouth from the dock. He said it was "the best vacation ever!". Steps to the lake were a workout, didn't bother the kids at all though grandpa was breathing harder a bit at the top. The 2.5 baths were welcome with our large group and the water at the house was good to drink. Owners were friendly and accommodating, hope to see them again.

Gene Riggs

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much for the nice review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We have had so many pleased people over the last nine years that we have been doing this that is makes it all worth while. It's a fun thing for us to do together and it is a labor of love for us. I'm not sure if we'll ever retire. :-) Enjoy the rest of your summer and we do home to see you again soon.
