All was good except not having AC in the one bedroom. Unit went out the day before. Nice having Lake Michigan within 100 yards. The fenced in backyard was helpful since we had kids with us. Charcoal grill got used daily. Main leave bathroom was awesome and newly finished. Would have like to seen more cooking utensils in the kitchen since we cooked all 3 meals a day and had 9 people eating. Great communication start to finish. Racine Zoo less than a half mile walk. Zoo back up to the backyard.

Response from Alan:
Jason, thanks for your feedback, sorry about the a/c, we had to take it out of the window due to a hornets nest outside the window and the exhaust from the ac being open. We have removed the nest now. I'll look at getting some more pots and pans for larger groups such as yours.

The house was very comfortable for 6 adults and a toddler. It has a toy room for the kids, a well equipped kitchen, a comfortable living room, a sun porch and a deck. It is half block from the lake and lakeside bike trail.

Listing just as promised, the beach is a short walk and perfect for family fun! House is comfortable and the kitchen is well appointed for dinning in. Great stay, recommend for anyone looking for a quite weekend getaway... we even saw the giraffes each day around 5pm

This house is a nice little retreat on the shores of Lake Michigan! If you have a family, it is kid friendly with toys and other items to help out with your stay if needed. We had a full house and did not feel like we were on top of one another. And, we were there over the Fourth of July and you could see the fireworks from the upstairs balcony. I would recommend this home.

Alan's home was much more than we expected. There was tons of space which is what we were looking for. The yard looked great for our kids to play in but unfortunately it rained a majority of our stay. We were able to walk to the beach a few times which was nice being right there. I highly recommend this lake house!
