Guest Reviews

This property is BEAUTIFUL!!!! by TS 07/23/2017
This property is as beautiful in person as it is online!!!! We had 9 people stay in this house and we cannot say enough about it! There was plenty of room to spread out and the kitchen, patio and dining areas were perfect to have everyone together! The beach was spacious and private and close to the house. We watched the sunset every night from the patio! The neighbors in the community are very welcoming. We have already booked for next year! The only thing that we would change is to add a TV on the main floor (but it was actually nice to play games together instead of watching TV!) and possibly add blinds to the bedrooms (the light sleepers brought sleep masks to sleep in) Just a great vacation house!!
Perfect house for our large group! by MD 07/06/2017
This property was perfect for our large group. Loved the open spaciousness. The family room on the lowest level was perfect for kids to hang out. The main floor has the perfect layout for adults to relax, converse and chill. Loved that all of the bedrooms were on the upper level and the house is so well built that you can't hear from one floor to the next. Thank you to the owners for giving up one of their days there so that we could stay longer!!! We would definitely stay here again!
Beach Cliff Heaven by N.D. 06/22/2017
Awesome home, great views and porches surrounding. Awesome master bedroom, kept slider open to listen to the lake all night. Wonderful wooded area surrounding.
Beautiful house and fully stocked kitchen/ linens etc. by DS 08/31/2016
Beautiful house and fully stocked kitchen/ linens etc. Loved the beach. Loved the open floor plan and screened in porch. Views were great. Close to town of St Joseph which was charming. Thank you very much! Great experience overall.
We had a fantastic stay at Tree Top. by ME 08/22/2016
We had a fantastic stay at Tree Top. It was in the perfect location – the walk to the beach was very easy with a short set of stairs. The house was a great size – room for our large family to spread out and yet the main floor open concept made it easy for us to all be in the same area at once without feeling crowded. While there were neighbors, we rarely saw anyone, so it was secluded – which is exactly what we were looking for.
