  1. A great escape during Covid 19!

    In late summer, my daughter and I rented Merry Breeze cabin 3. We loved the uninstructed views of Lake Michigan (we could. Hear the crashing waves at night). The beach was secluded, and perfect for long walks. The cabin was cozy, and we used the fireplace at night and had our coffee out on the deck in the morning. Because of Covid 19, we brought most of our food. The kitchen had everything we needed – and more. We are returning next summer and hope to make it an annual tradition!

  2. Summer fun!

    Merry Breeze 3 offers so much in one spot! Lake views from the deck, short walk to the water and long strolls on a sandy beach. Perfection! The house is well maintained, cozy and welcoming. Guaranteed relaxation! Thank

  3. A Wonderful Holiday Weekend

    We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend here with our two daughters. The kitchen was more than adequate to prepare a simple holiday meal. The beach was amazing and perfect for a walk after Thanksgiving dinner. We spent a lot of time at the nearby Crossroads at Big Creek nature preserve charging our EV and walking in the woods. I will say, Wifi would be a big plus to this wonderful property.

  4. Enjoyable stay!

    My boy friend and I have stayed here twice. We love the fireplace and kitchen. It’s got most everything you need to cook and bake with. It’s always been clean upon arrival. Its a great spot if you want to unplug. Cell service was non existent on our first trip in September 2020 and slightly better on our second trip in May 2021. After our first trip we gave JR Vacation Rentals feedback that the queen mattress was uncomfortable and could use replacement. At our second trip it appeared that a mattress topper was added, slightly improving the sleep comfort but just be aware that it is an older mattress. I appreciate that they tried to do something with our feedback and look forward to making additional reservations at Merry Breeze Cottage 3. The mattress is the only reason I’d give it less than 5 stars.

  5. Cooler on the lake

    Three night stay very nice place! Beautiful location. We plan to return next summer for longer. Hidden gem!

  6. Perfect!

    My husband and I spent many of falls here! Such great memories! The cottage is just wonderful, right by the water, we have had many beach bonfires. Sunrises are just breath taking! Being a cook, this is a wonderful kitchen for a rental. Fires on the cold nights with a side of scrabble. Makes me want to go back 🙂 Walk the quiet road in the fall take in the smells and beautiful colors!
