Great Home. The house was great! Amazing views from every room in the house. Clean and nicely decorated. Jane was informative and helpful from the very first time I contacted her on. Thank you for everything Jane! We appreciate you opening your home and plan on coming back every year! Kathy H., Aug. 2016
Beautiful View. This was our third time visiting this wonderful beach house across the street from Lake Michigan. The view is spectacular and every room in the house has large windows overlooking the lake. The house is warm and inviting and decorated very nicely in a seaside motif. We love coming to “our spot” in Algoma. The rooms are spacious and bright with a cozy, homey feeling. Thank you so much Jane for sharing your home with us! Kathleen K., Oct. 2014
Great Value and Beautiful View. The house was beautiful and had a wonderful view of the lake. The screen porch is on the second floor and has a hammock and it gets a nice breeze from the lake that cools down the whole house for great sleeping. It was a little further south than I originally thought but within a couple hours’ drive of the tip of the peninsula, and since we were on a bike trip it allowed for some good day rides. There is also a great winery and some good shopping in and around Algoma. We were very pleased with our stay and Jane was responsive and informative. Heather, July 2013
