Quiet, peaceful home in the country within a short driving distance to beaches, parks, wineries and several cities. We loved the large screened in porch where we could enjoy our coffee in the morning, eat our meals, and have "happy hour" in the afternoons. The host was great at a…

Our family of five enjoyed the stay very much! Close to beaches (Weko and Warren Dunes) but settled on a quiet piece of property. We loved the screened in porch and cozy feel. When you stay, be sure to visit Whistle Stop Grocery, Peasants Pantry and Infusco for all things good f…

Very cozy house- loved the vintage style bedding and nice extra touches like bathrobes for all guests. We enjoyed the croquet set immensely and letting our dog roam in the woods. We only needed the air the first night- the Michigan summers very nice and night and the trees kept …

Thanks for the note. We'll be more careful to make sure windows are closed. Was the screen not in place? Great idea to move the bug zapper into the bathroom. I'm a big fan of thinking creatively

Walter's place is great! We had a small group of girls for a little get-away weekend, and it was exactly what we were looking for. There was plenty of space for everyone, Walter was incredibly responsive before we arrived with any questions we had - and he had a helpful "resourc…

We booked Walter's place as a weekend getaway in a remote location. It certainly was that, about 20 minutes from several good places to eat, go for coffee, etc. There is a lovely hot tub & Walter was very thorough in describing the way everything operates & laying out the groun…

Hello Julia, I'm very sorry for the difficulties you ran into during your stay. Nothing to be done about that, except to say that if you had called or written I could have 1) gotten the workers to leave (I had told them there should be absolutely no work done when we had guests) and 2) given you instructions on how to correct the hot water problem; as easy as throwing a switch. I appreciate you letting me know through the Private Feedback, but when it's repeated in the review everyone will read, it's hardly private.

I'm a 73 year old actor and home renovator. My wife Jane and I were married in 1967. We enjoy entertaining small groups, good food and wine, board games and traveling. We're more likely to explore new places on our own than go on tours; we enjoy finding the unexpected. We lo…
