Beautiful lake MI home

The house is even better in person. So much room and so many wonderful things to do at and around the house. We enjoyed our week stay and would highly recommend this place to all.

Wonderful family beach getaway

Review by Alice D.
We had our second annual family reunion at the Lake Michigan Family Getaway house and had a wonderful time there. We were a party of 6 adults and 4 children. We all loved the beach area (especially finding many Petoskey stones), canoeing, and making s'mores at the firepit every night. The sunsets over Lake Michigan were stunning every day! It is a beautiful property and the house was immaculate. All the details were lovely and very much appreciated. The kitchen is very well equipped and we found everything that we needed. We also liked the proximity to the charming town of Charlevoix, golf courses, and Petoskey. We also did a day trip to Mackinac Island which was very special. Communication with Northern Michigan Escapes was easy and the team always responded promptly. We highly recommend the house and hope to visit again.

Amazing trip

Review by Tara A.
Our rental had everything we could have needed to make us feel right at home including a very nice gift on the counter upon check in! We had 2 small things I texted the rental co about and they promptly responded and dealt with any issue. The house was gorgeous and right on the water, I didn’t feel like the pictures did it justice! We are going to be back!

Memories made!

Wonderful week with family. Teenage cousins were in heaven with the outdoor toys and basement set up. Nightly dinner on the deck followed by sunsets by the firepit. A true gift of the pandemic to pivot our summer plans and have a week we would not have otherwise had time for. Looking forward to returning in the future!

Amazing getaway

Review by Sarah S.
Gorgeous home, beautifully decorated, with all the necessary amenities. The home has a overall very cozy feeling. The property and grounds are gorgeous. We had 8 adults and 10 children. We all had plenty of space. Conveniently located.. We docked a boat on Lake Charlevoix. Went into town to shop, dine. Kids would bike to the nearby park. We had a really great time!

Manager Response:
Sarah, the owners of this home truly made it a home away from home for every guest. We are so happy that you and your family had an awesome experience and hope that you will contact us again on your next family vacation to Northern Michigan. Terri and the entire staff at NME

Beautiful accommodations and a wonderful week.

We appreciated being close to the water and to be able to see the lake from the deck. The only drawback was that the beach was rocky and swimming was limited. A nice amount of sand had been brought in and made the lounging areavery enjoyable. We also enjoyed the hammock and the kayaks.

Manager Response:
I am so glad you and your family had a great week Bea. This home as everything to offer the smallest and largest of families. I know we spoke on the phone and you intended to give us all 5's not the 1's that are indicated on this review and we are working with Escapia to get it changed. We will call you as soon as we get the OK from the owners for your week next year as we discussed on the phone. Terri, NME

Amazing, private home with all the luxuries of a 5-star hotel!

Review by Rheana W.
Our family getaway (three families totaling 14 people) could not have been better, the gracious owners have thought of every comfort. The setting is private yet close to everything - even better then being in town. We were impressed at the thoughtfulness of the owners and the hospitality of the rental manager.
