Thank you for your hospitality during our stay for our 10th anniversary here we stayed 3 nights and 4 days. The view is amazing off of the deck. You have thought of everything that someone on vacation might forget to bring. The bottle of wine in the chocolates in our pillowcase when we checked in was so thoughtful. This vacation was so relaxing and exactly what we needed. Also, it is a Fisherman's Paradise. We caught over 40 fish in total all different varieties. Thank you for joining us for a fresh fish feast. We enjoyed your company and your hospitality. We will definitely be back,thank you again.

Nancy and Dave are amazing hosts! Their place is incredible. It's right on the water and you get an entire cabin to yourself. The cabin has everything you could want and need. There were plenty of toiletries in the bathroom in case we forgot anything along with plenty of snacks. The kitchen was stocked with water bottles and coffee so we could keep awake and hydrated during our trip :) Nancy and Dave made us feel like family and we truly felt at home. I had mentioned to Nancy that my husband and I were coming for our anniversary celebrations and she left us a local Michigan bottle of wine with a happy anniversary card in addition to some tasty chocolates on our bed. Nancy and Dave gave us access to plenty of resources so we could have an authentic and fun Big Rapids experience. They also invited us for a lovely deck campfire and we enjoyed sharing stories while taking in the beautiful starry night. We definitely plan on returning and we highly recommend their place!

We had a great stay at Nancy and Dave's river house. They were amazing hosts, made sure we were comfortable and felt welcome throughout our stay. Even provided a delicious wine bottle as a welcome gift. Never had a better experience than this! The cottage was very clean and comfy, and the kitchen was equipped with everything you can possible need to cook. Loved it! Loved the area as well. The pictures don't do it justice, it is so beautiful and peaceful to relax by the river on their amazing deck which offers a breathtaking view, or go for a walk, a hike, explore the town, enjoy water activities, you name it. Beautiful place, great people, all around perfect! Guaranteed you will enjoy your stay here.

Nancy and Dave were great hosts to us! They were the most kindhearted people we've ever met and they made us feel right at home! We had a great bonfire with them as we shared our life stories with one another. We can't wait to go back☺️️

The River House is so beautiful- cozy inside, with so many thoughtful touches to help make your stay easy and comfortable. Nancy was very easy to contact for questions, and she was incredibly generous to allow us to enjoy the deck overlooking the river. We enjoyed dinner out there, as well as a full moon reflecting on the water later that evening. The location was great- easy drive to downtown Big Rapids where we enjoyed a walk along the river and a tasty dinner, and close to Manistee National Forest which was our destination the next day. We will be back and highly recommend Nancy's place to others- I only wish we had a longer stay there!

Very comfy studio with a great view. Owners have added many extras to make a very cozy stay! Nice bath towels, a bottle of MI wine, chocolates on the pillows, some coffee & fresh cream in the frig. Used the grill once, but that was an added bonus. We visited friends in Reed City and Howard City while we were up there. Nancy sent a great email prior with a wealth of information about the area. We would recommend staying and would go back in a heartbeat!

We enjoyed our stay at Nancy's and Dave's guesthouse very much. They made us feel very welcome and thought about everything. We didn't expect to be pampered with really good coffee, fresh milk and jam in the fridge and a bottle of red wine, and of course the highlight, being shipped into a beautiful sunset on the Muskegon in their boat. Aside from these "extras", everything just went fine: checking in and out, the kitchen is very well equipped, and the bed is cozy.

I'm always looking forward to my next trip! Our family loves beaches, palm trees and out of the way places. Mexico has become a favorite destination but we like to find new places to explore so are always on the lookout for a new adventure.

We prefer staying with local people so we really have a chance to learn about the area we're visiting. We're people people and love making new friends!
