Drugs/Smoking/Fireworks: Freshwater does not permit illegal drugs of any kind on the property. Due to the location of the properties, smoking is strongly discouraged around the home and strictly prohibited in the home. Fireworks are prohibited at a Freshwater location for the safety of all persons in and around the property, even if it is legal in that city.

Fireplace: No

Fire-pit: Portable fire pit

Fishing: Some common fish you will see in the nearby lake are walleye, perch, and bass. Please be sure to bring your own poles as there are none at this property. Also, in order to fish in Michigan lakes, one is required to hold a fishing license.

Grill: Propane Grill and propane is provided.

Grocery Store: Store is ¼ mile up the road and a Dollar General ½ mile away.

Handicap Friendly: Let us explain what we mean by handicap friendly…there is a zero-1 step entry into this home, and it is one level (a ranch-style home). The bathrooms and hallways are not up to official handicap standards and do not come equipped with special apparatus to help those in need. There are 4 steps leading out the backyard.

Internet: YES!

Linens: Yes, we provide your sheets and linens. Just like a hotel, the beds will be made for you upon arrival. If you are fussy about the thread count of your sheets, just let me know, and I'll make sure we leave a bed open for your sheets. We have just the basic sheets, pillows, pillow cases and bath towels.

Parking: There is enough room for 2 cars in the driveway.

Pets: No pets allowed at this property.

Privacy: City like atmosphere with many things nearby. Small town atmosphere is better said.

Seniors: Come one, come all! This space is great for those over 60. Sometimes when renting a home, you are never too sure about the terrain: is the home on top of a hill, is parking on a steep slope, are there 100 steps to the beach or the unit, etc. This home gets the FVR approval for the young at heart!

Snowmobiles: a person (resident and nonresident) that operates a snowmobile in Michigan is required to purchase a snowmobile trail permit. The trail permit enables snowmobilers to ride state-designated trails and thousands more miles of public roads and on public lands (where authorized). It is valid for one year, which begins Oct. 1 and ends Sept. 30 of the following year. State-designated trails are open Dec. 1-March 31 and grooming occurs when there is enough snow on the ground. . There is a parking lot right around the corner where semis park as well where you can leave your trailers.

Space: 1 ranch, small home

Televisions: Smart TV with streaming capabilities. One in each bedroom and one in living room.

Towels: Yes, we provide towels. It's always good to bring extra though.

Washer and dryer: No.

Wood: Please bring your own wood.
