What Past Guests Are Saying
Truly amazing- You will win back your life! Fully Recharged and
We stayed at Sanctuaire twice, each for one week. This cabin is truly a treat, and you will do yourself a big favor staying at Sanctuaire, as it is amazing. Having traveled all over the world, and being very familiar with all sorts of lake houses in Southwest Michigan as well as mountain resorts and cabins, this home stands out as being the best.
Travel reviews are always difficult to compare, what is great for one person is not so great for another. In this case however, it is different. This home is absolutely amazing, and I dare to say that most peoples' own homes are not as nice as this exquisite retreat. To call it a cabin is an understatement as it is fantastic, with everything perfectly fitting, from the views, to the location, decor, cleanliness all the way to a beautiful welcome basket, down to cooking dishes, plates, herbs and anything you might not even have thought of in your own home during a well-planned Holiday. Do yourself a favor, and if you are looking for a great escape, stay at Sanctuaire. I haven't had time to write this review earlier, but nevertheless, with the upcoming Holidays, as much as I would like to keep it as "my best-kept travel secret", this cabin (I would rather call it a Chalet, as they are so gorgeous) will provide for an unforgettable vacation. I know, words come easy, but this comes from a seasoned traveler and it is very sincere. Feel free to contact me for further questions, and Mona, thanks again for everything! It was certainly one of the best Christmas Holidays I ever had. One last note, having all the outdoor privacy and expensive Outdoor Hot tub at Sanctuiare, sitting in it at night when it snows, is the best. You will win back your life. This review is the result of an amazing experience, and it should reflect it, I hope I was able to find the right words.
Relaxing, perfect vacation - we hope to come back!
We stayed 2 weeks at Sanctuaire. We were 6 people, extended family: 4 adults and 2 children, all hoping for what the property promised, a sanctuary. Even though our expectations were high after looking at photos on the website, we were thrilled on our arrival. The owner, has painstakingly thought through every detail of what you might need or want for a perfect holiday, from modern, fully stocked kitchen and comfortable beds to the extravaganza of a gorgeous hot tub, boats, out door grill, and of course, the Plasma TV with Surround Sound and lots of Dvds(!) We all used the gym which made eating the beautiful croissants and pain de chocolat from the local bakery (thank you Sandra Kays;-) The owner and the local contacts were very easy to get in touch with, and helpful, had we any queries. Our children learned to swim in the lake during our stay and we enjoyed visiting the beautiful farmer markets that were held in different villages in the vicinity. We would warmly recommend Sanctuaire to anyone who wants to enjoy a hasslefree, relaxing holiday. We have nothing to complain about, and our standards and expectations were very high. I just hope it wonÂ´t be impossible to book again!
Classy lake house in God's Country
Loved our week here for the first time. Clean, sparkling lake and beautifully landscaped outdoors. The home is great- a bottle of wine awaited us, with clean robes, towels, and a fully stocked home. Our family of 4 fit perfectly. If you have trouble managing steps, the ones to the lake or upstairs may be an issue, but the rooms and bathrooms are wonderful.
Easy communication with owner, and a book of suggestions for the area was a great touch (not to mention almost a house full of floats, fishing items, toys, Dvd's, books, kitchen items like ice cream makers!). There are cheaper lake homes for this area, but none that are more classy.

Sanctuaire: An Exceptional Vacation
I have been staying at Sanctuaire nearly every summer since 2000. My last stay was in august 2011. Sanctuaire is secluded and private, yet, close to everything you might want to explore in the area. The home is very comfortable and clean. It is obvious that the owners take great pride in their property. Amenities include very comfortable beds, a washer and dryer, beautiful fireplace, Wifi, satellite TV, DVD player, high-end sound system, and an incredible outside hot tub with a view of the lake. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare and serve a meal. The 3 season room is perfect for sharing meals, reading, or playing board games. The lake is great for swimming, canoeing, or fishing. You can have your morning coffee out on the dock and toast marshmallows at the outside fire pit. The view from the loft will blow you away! The hosts are wonderful people and go out of their way to ensure your visit is relaxing. I highly recommend that you book Sanctuaire for your next vacation, retreat, family gathering, or romantic weekend with that special person. You'll be glad that you did!

Thank you for staying at Sanctuaire for over a decade! We look forward to having you stay at Sanctuaire and treating it as your cherished vacation every year from California. Thank you so much !
Tranquil, pristine views and a warm atmosphere- the perfect geta
Sanctuaire has something for everyone. The house is cozy, well maintained and attractively furnished. It is well-stocked with kitchen equipment, games, fishing tackle- almost anything you can think of. The lake is sparkling in the sunshine from the moment you awake to the sounds of songbirds and wildlife.
Nearby wineries beckon as do farmstands with fresh honey, Lake Michigan, antiques and some pretty awesome
restaurants. Despite being so near to everything, it is also a haven of privacy and remote enough to provide a
peaceful stay. I never wanted to leave.
