"Beautiful Home"

by Karin H.


The house was the PERFECT size and had so many wonderful amenities such as the screened in porch, hot tub, fire pit, and beautiful deck and patio set. If I could design my own home it would be just like Rangers Retreat. If there was a negative, it would be the extremely hard water. It’s such a beautiful, modern home but the toilets and showers are stained orange from the rust/minerals. Our family is used to harder water when visiting family in Michigan, but it wasn’t mentioned and did make the stay slightly less pleasant than if there was a water softener or lake water. Otherwise we absolutely loved our stay.

"Love Union Pier"

by Megan L.


Overall, we enjoyed our time at Rangers Retreat -- we love Union Pier, the family that lives nearby and, of course, the Lake! The inside of the house was the perfect amount of space. Air conditioning worked very well during the super hot spell and the house was very clean and tidy (except for the entry way (breezeway) which I swept out). The beds and pillows were comfortable as was the living room furniture. Very nice! The kitchen table accommodated our family plus some extended family members. That being said, I felt the kitchen was lacking from what your website indicated was a "well-equipped kitchen."
