Great Way To Top Off The Summer

We had an absolutely awesome time at Island Cove over Labor Day weekend! I’m so glad that we were able to find it on VRBO. After reading the description and perusing the photos, we knew it would be perfect for our group, and it didn’t disappoint…

The house was very spacious; even larger than it appeared in the pictures. The boys got one wing upstairs, and the girls got the other. It was also nice to have a good-sized, well-equipped kitchen, whether it was for actually preparing a meal or just putting out some pizza. And of course, the multiple bathrooms were absolutely essential. Everything was perfectly clean and neat and ready for our arrival. And we were all ready to dive right into the fun, as Joe had answered all of our questions ahead of time.

Family members young and old enjoyed being outside doing lots of activities. Sage Lake was good-sized and fun to explore, on the pontoon, the kayaks and paddle boards, and the pedal boat. Everyone also had fun playing catch and corn hole on the lawn, and it was so relaxing to sit around and unwind by the fire pit at night.

There was so much to do at the house that we didn’t really go on too many outings. But we did get some yummy pizza at The Cedar Tavern and Grill, tasty homemade bacon at Alward’s in Hale for breakfasts, some snacks, and goodies at Cruisins, and BBQ at Main Street Pizza in Hale. Between those restaurants and stores and some grilling we did on the nice patio at the house, we sure ate well! Every single member of our family had a terrific time! I would definitely recommend Island Cove to any large group looking to make some awesome Up North memories in Pure Michigan!

Everything was excellent.

We really appreciated all of the amenities. The lake and the house were beautiful. The whole family, from little kids on up, enjoyed it. The porch and the firepit area had great views of the sunset and the lake. House was clean and nice, beds were comfortable. Managers were helpful and very responsive.

The property was beautiful and so well maintained!

An oasis on what is basically your own island. The house and island property were…

gorgeous!  Joe was very helpful and the house fit 13 large people very comfortably! Barbecuing on the well-maintained patio while watching the sunset really set this place apart from other’s I’ve stayed at. Plenty of space for yard games and a private beach to boot! Nothing more you could ask for, but maybe a golf course close by….oh wait they have that too! We will definitely be back. Thanks again!

We spent the week, our entire family, in the house. There were 10 adults, one 3-year-old, one infant and one dog. We were celebrating my mom’s 80th birthday. We had plenty of room, ample sleeping, and bathrooms…

The house was very clean, neat and tidy with towels, linens and garbage bags/cans provided. Parking is a bit restrictive but manageable. Also provided are kayaks, a paddle boat, pontoon boat(s) and other water toys. The privacy is a perk as the peninsula setting provides a quiet and serene campfire oasis with the beach literally a stone’s throw away. Outdoor seating is also plentiful. We bbq’ed, fished, swam, boated, kayaked, lounged, “smored” and relaxed, just to hit on a few of the highlights. The landlords (Joe and Chad) were both very helpful and communicative prior to and at the onset of our stay. We would highly recommend this rental and hope we can go back again on an annual basis.

My family and I had an amazing stay at island cove!! There were 13 of us from ages 6 to 60 and never a dull moment!! Plenty of space and things to do!!! The water toys were an added bonus to the sandy beach area!! From fishing to bonfires this house has it all!! We enjoyed the lake and all the house had to offer!! I would highly recommend this place for a family retreat or a get together with friends!!
