We really enjoyed our stay, very relaxing, didn't want to leave. The house is spacious, updated, well-maintained, and clean. The photos are accurate. You are treated with a wide view of the lake from the open concept and large windows. The beds are comfortable. The internet worked flawlessly. Cell phone reception is best outside the home. A land line phone was provided and we found that to be the best means of communicating. The sunrise from the master bedroom is amazing. We took full advantage of the kayaks, canoe, pool table, corn hole game, and puzzles. Hemlock Lake connects to Carpenter Lake which connects to Long Lake. We had fun (and a good workout) exploring the lakes by kayak. We used the fire pit most nights. The kitchen is beautiful and very functional. The appliances worked well. While there are convenience stores nearby, we went to Coldwater for food & supplies. The booking process was straightforward. The owners are organized and have put a lot into making the home a pleasant experience. Thank you for everything.

10 senior age adults. House is welcoming inside and out. The pictures on are acurate. House is clean, rooms are a nice size, bathrooms very nice. Kitchen well stocked. Beds are comfortable. Some did take kayak rides and the canoe. Enjoyed the fire ring about every night since it was cool for July. Owners are very good to deal with. Our golfers found plenty of courses. Antique shopping for some. It is not a touristy area. Lots of houses around the lake but not many people around this week. I would recommend this to friends and I would go back. Next time I would not sleep in the room with the open view. I go to bed earlier than than the others and the conversation can be heard up there. The other little thing is the bed in the basement is close to the pump room. Overall, a great place.

We had a great time at your home. The space was perfect for our group, the view overlooking the lake was a perfect setting for our family Christmas gathering. Jim and Carol made the rental easy and were kind in responding to our questions.

We had family from Texas, Arizona and California staying at the lake house for Hillsdale College Graduation. It was a great location (i.e. ten miles from the college), very comfortable and well furnished. There was plenty of space to eat, visit and play pool. The only down side was the two people sleeping down in the basement had noise from the pump all night. Otherwise, there was not any negative feedback. Jim & Carol were easy to work with and everything went off without a hitch. Thanks for providing such a beautiful place! There are activities provided for all ages. We did not have any little ones, but the house is well furnished for kids too.

My mother recently retired and had her 60th B-day. As a gift us kids wanted to give her what she always asks us for, but can be difficult to give/coordinate, our time as a family. With very little background we decided to rent the Hemlock Lake House. The Minehart family was so very accommodating and kind start to finish. The house was beautiful, clean, and very well thought out. Having the canoe and kayaks for the lake was so much fun as well! The entire family was able to relax and enjoy. We hope to visit again next summer!

I recently rented this wonderful lake house for a girls weekend. When we arrived we were so pleased with the comfort, cleanliness, and decor of this beautiful home. It looks just like the photos on VRBO. It had every feature of home, with a wonderful view and a lot of space for large groups. We were a group of 10 women celebrating life, marriage and lifetime of friendships. Unfortunately the weather was not so great, but we plan to go back for a summer trip and utilize the outdoor activies. The house has kayaks, and we really wanted to spend time on the lake. Next time, as we are planning to go back. The owners were very responsive to my questions, calls and refunded my deposit right away. I highly recommend this home for anyone wanting to relax and enjoy a quiet place.

Our large family, of up to 18 at times, enjoyed a week at the Hemlock Lake House. We came prepared with all our own linens as necessary for the rental. We used the washer and dryer multiple times every day and they worked great. The kitchen was stocked wonderfully for a large group with plenty of everything. There was a good variety of cooking pots large and small, large bowls, and plenty of utensils. Your pancake griddle was very useful and worked wonderfully. The house came with a nice supply of indoor and outdoor games and puzzles. We were also very excited by the supply of kayaks large and small and other boats that were at the house for our use. Your pier for the boats was just right and we enjoyed swimming in the water in front of the house and floating on our rafts. The lake was great with the time in the morning and evening for calmer waters. We spent a lot of time exploring the lake at all hours. I think my favorite was at 10 pm just staring up at the stars. The selection of life preservers was much more thorough then I expected with adult and youth jackets. There was also plenty of outdoor chairs on upper and lower deck areas. I would be happy to share your property info with any of my friends who are interested in renting your house. My husband and I, and our boys on their sleeping bags, enjoyed the master bedroom. The view was great and my husband had a very good pair of noise cancelling headphones that let him go to bed at 10:00 and not be bothered by the games and talk that were going on below. We used all the types of beds except for the pull out couch and they were good. Your house is beautiful and we enjoyed reading your families history that is framed by the door. What a blessed story.

Our extended family stayed at the Hemlock Lake House to celebrate our son's graduation from Hillsdale College. The house is so much bigger than it looks on the outside. We all had our own beds and with 4 full baths everyone had plenty of room to get ready for the commencement ceremony. Afterwards, we all celebrated with a cookout . There was plenty of seating both inside and outside and everyone was so appreciative to have a nice place to relax and celebrate after traveling so far. Much better than a hotel room! The house was nice and clean and the kitchen was stocked well with plenty of dishes, cookware, and even some large bowls for all our food. It turned out to be a pretty weekend so we were able to enjoy the kayaks (they have 6!) - such a pretty lake. You do have to bring your own linens & towels but it wasn't a big deal. Each family brought their own so it wasn't too much for anyone. I brought a plastic tub so we could bring them back home easily for washing. Also, you need to clean to get your deposit back, but the owners have instructions and supplies so that wasn't a big deal either. Our family all helped and we had it done in no time. The rate for this huge house is much better than reserving 4 hotel rooms which is what we would have needed, and the bonus is we had so much more room and didn't have to eat at expensive restaurants. It was such a blessing to spend our time here celebrating with family.

The home was just as advertised. Accommodated our group of 16 very well. Though we did not take advantage of the lake, still had a great time.


This was a beautiful home. Lots of room inside, comfortable and easy to relax in. My husband tried kayaking for the first time and loved it. The lake was very calm. We had 8 adults there and everyone liked it.
