Perfect, Family-Friendly House and Lake!

We were so pleased with our family vacation on Lake Missaukee! The home on Arbutus was the perfect amount of space and layout for three generations of family to come together for the week. The house was fresh, clean and had every amenity you can imagine. They truly thought of everything! We spent our days watching the kids play in the shallow, sandy beach, boating and tubing around the calm, perfect sized lake and ending the evening with bonfires watching the sky turn pink. The bedroom and bathroom ratio was perfect for our group. The game room and movie room downstairs were bonuses! All the different areas inside and outside that would accommodate a large group for meals was so nice. The neighbors were quiet and friendly. We never had noise issues or late night disturbances. The lake was quiet and calm without too many boats. The town was cute and quaint with a library, a few restaurants and plenty of local, farm fresh produce. We went mini golfing and got ice cream one day and went out to breakfast two other days. Most of our time was spent at the house, playing games, sitting in the water, reading books and watching the kids play; a perfect week away with family! Thanks for opening this home to us! If you ever want to sell let us know ;)

We spent a week at this great cottage during June of 2016. It was a great place for our family which consisted of grandchildren, adult children, and us the parents. It was big enough for us all to have our own space and yet be able to sit down together for meals. So many times places will say they sleep 12 or more but then there is not enough room for us all to set together for dinner. The owner Jan was excellent to work with and I would recommend it to anyone with little kids.
