Great place to stay and highly recommended.
This rental property was perfect for our trip. We enjoyed fishing, having a bonfire and just relaxing by the water. The beds were extremely comfortable and the layout of the house was great for six people. There's a great local restaurant we enjoyed across the bay called The Dock. Overall, we enjoyed out weekend very much.
Fun and Fabulous Family Vacation at the Lilac House!
The Lilac House is absolutely lovely. The home is in a very secluded location which, for us, was perfect. We didn't see a neighboring house until we went out on the water, we never saw another person unless we went into the Village of Garden. It was exactly what our family was looking for. My husband and I (age 49 yrs) took our two younger children (boy 13 yrs, girl 10 yrs) and my husband's parents (78 and 71) to the Lilac House and spent a very relaxing 5+ days together. We used the house as our 'home base' to explore the UP with Pictured Rocks only an hour away (a beautiful drive through the Hiawatha National Forest) and Mackinac Island under 2 hours away. We spent the other days enjoying the house with it's beautiful property and hundreds of feet of waterfront -- a perfect place for swimming, fishing, and to explore the bay with the kayaks we rented. Garden Bay is ideal as it's off the larger Big Bay De Noc off Lake Michigan which means the water was warm enough to swim in.
The house itself is gorgeous. Beautiful white pine everywhere, generous rooms, all kitchen utensils/pots/pans, etc. and bedding and linens -- there wasn't anything they missed! -- the Skinners thought of everything. Our family wrapped up the vacation dreaming of coming back next summer! I highly recommend this home and renting from the Skinners.
Stayed a week. Everything our family was looking for and more. Nice quiet location. Close enough to the necessities
Breath taking!!! Great for a family vacation!
My family 8, including a toddler rented this house from a Thursday-Sunday. Plenty of room! Huge spaces! Great firepit area on the water. We had the most incredible weekend there and WILL be back next year for sure!!! Katie was amazing to work with and available by phone the entire time we were there if we needed anything at all. The house is just 5 minutes from town which makes little trips to get milk a breeze! It's a little tricky to get to, even for myself who has been on that exact main street 30+ times in my life so maybe a sign for direction would help BUT again, Katie was super helpful and guided us to the home.
Thanks for providing such a beautiful lake home for our family vacation! We can't wait til next year :)
Great place to stay!
Loved it! Stayed here with my grown children. We enjoyed the lake, playing badmi nton, and the beautiful surroundings. Gracious owners greeted us at arrival. Handwritten "Welcome" from their son made me smile every time I saw it!
