""Hey guys, couldn't imagine a more perfect place to enjoy our anniversary, and to catch up on quiet thoughts and peaceful musings, away from the chaos and noise of the city, from the press of hectic and frantic people. It is good to have a sanctuary and good friends to visit here at Seacoast. See you as soon as possible."

"Hi Geoff and Carole
I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the seacoast loft.
The Upper Peninsula of Michigan has become one of my favorite destinations,
and it was no exception on our trip. Lots of snow and such beauty.
We loved the loft. It was beautifully decorated and the openness of the main
area gave a homey feel to the room. Also, we liked how the kitchen was so
fully stocked with cups, plates, pans, utensils and silverware. we found
everything we needed. Also we enjoyed the many channels on the satellite
TV.
We found the skiing and the snowboarding to be tremendous. I love the
forest and all the trees. It makes for a lovely time of cross-country skiing.
My son and his buddy really enjoyed Marquette Mountain. The accessibility to
NMU, Marquette and the surrounding area makes your place an ideal spot to
stay. I love it that you are on Lake Superior. I hope you have many satisfied
guests come to stay! We will definitely keep you and Seacoast Sand River in
mind when we come back to the UP.

"We arrived safe and sound at home, thanks in no small part to the generosity and kindness of people like you. Though it sounds like an exaggeration, the sleep that we had in your loft was one that we both agree was the most refreshing of the trip... "superior accommodations" as you so aptly put it on your business card... You take care of a precious spot of land, may it remain that way into the far distant future."

"We wanted to thank you again for providing our family with such wonderful accommodations during our visit to Marquette for our son's wedding in July... Booking accommodations sight unseen doesn't always turn out as well as our experience at Seacoast... You both made us all feel very welcome and we look forward to another visit in the near future."

"We had a wonderful time here at the loft with our two young boys. It truly felt
like a home away from home. We enjoyed many of the activities in the area
such as the beach, waterfalls, sugarloaf mountain, the children's museum and
the Pictured Rocks boat cruise. Most of all we appreciated your attention to
our kids needs especially letting our oldest ride the four wheeler. He loved
being here and does not want to leave!. Thanks for making this a great
vacation!

"Our second visit to the cottage & it's even more beautiful than in 2000, with
the addition of the sunroom, new furniture, wood floors, new deck, softer
water, new shower head, & measuring cups in the kitchen! A special thanks to
whoever left behind a half bottle of good wine. We hiked the trail from
Miner's Castle to Miner's Beach and stopped to admire a breathtaking view of
Red River. The kids liked Marquette with its college atmosphere. Four days is
too short - will stay the full week again next time. Thanks for sharing the
cottage with us - it feels like home.

"We had an absolutely wonderful stay here! The cabin exceeded our expectations. The view was just incredible! This is about our 1oth year to
spend our vacation in this area. We love it up here. It's like coming home to us. We took a pontoon boat our 2 days that we rented from Seaberg Pontoon Rental. It was a great way to keep teenagers entertained. The first time we
cruised by the painted rocks & saw the Bermuda shipwreck. The second time
we went all the way around Grand Island and even saw a bald eagle. WOW!

We want to definitely book the cabin again. Thanks for an unforgettable
vacation with such a great place to stay!

"People overuse the phrase "heaven on Earth" but it is appropriate for here. The
week was awesome. My wife and I joined my sister and her boyfriend for a much
needed vacation. Little did we know what was in store. The cottage was perfect.
I enjoyed walking down by the water. We jam packed a daytrip to Copper Harbor, Tahq Falls, boat trips to Painted Rocks (cool!) and ship wrecks. Nine holes of golf finished off a very busy but awesome vacation. My wife and I look
forward to returning up here someday from Illinois..

"I think we found a little slice of heaven on the world wide web. This is a beautiful cabin and will make my first trip into the U.P. more memorable. As we were cottage shopping last August, we stumbled across seacoastcottage
and I'm very happy that we did. Everything is great and I love my first view of Lake Superior and it's is breathtaking watching it from the deck! Our vacation started off on the rocky side getting here but once here I'm not sorry one bit.
I hope that I can share this experience again with family & friends & trust me
numerous people in Illinois and the Saginaw area will be visiting your web page.

from Pictured Rocks to Copper Harbor to Big Bay. Beautiful!

Favorite food - pasties from Muldoon's in Munising - just delicious! And a
cute little gift shop, too.

Thank you for your enthusiasm & friendliness when we called for information & reservations. Thank you also for having the cabin warm & welcoming.

"The cottage is everything we had hoped for & more. Peaceful, quiet, beautiful!
The appearance of the lake & sky varies every day. Exploring the area's natural beauty makes me think 'why would anyone want to vacation anywhere other than here?' We've been to the U.P. for the past 7 years, but never stayed
put in one place like this. We've enjoyed every minute of staying in this lovely cottage. Add a spatula & measuring spoons to the otherwise well-stocked kitchen (loved the spices!). The coffee shop in Munising has excellent espresso. Ben Franklin's is great for stocking up on crafts for the kids & water toys. Miner's Beach is a perfect family outing - beautiful clean soft sand on a very wide beach, breathtaking views, rock hunting, swimming, watching kayaks & boats come & go, and not crowded at all - we almost had the whole place to ourselves.

"Hello Carole,

Once again, Karen & I had the most marvelous stay at the Seacoast Cottage this year. I always aquire a sense of calm and a connection with mother earth more than at any other place that we stay on the big lake. I would like to thank you and Geoff for continuing to make this possible. We both had to deal with some type of head & chest colds when we arrived, but there would have been no better place to relax and recover. We had a wonderfull drive to Grand Marais on H58, stopped at the beach access to Lake Superior, and once again when I walked on the beach, I was in Awe of the Lake. Went to Murray Bay of Grand Island and had a nice ride back into the harbor.

I never did get the opporunity to purchase the book Broken, but did make it a point to read it while I was there last week. It is a very thought provoking novel that I am glad to have been able to read in the Seacoast environment. I finished reading the book on the morning that we left the cottage, hence, no coments in the guest book.

Our best regards to both you and Goeff.

We look forward to our return next year."

Dear Geoff and Carole
Thank You so much for letting us enjoy your cottage for the New Year-it changed our lives! We have been thinking about moving up here, and our stay this weekend confirmed our plan. This cottage is a dream home, and you have inspired us to follow our love for the outdoors and find an amazing spot like this for ourselves. We hiked a section of Pictured Rocks, skied at Marquette Mountain, and enjoyed putting the Pictured Rocks puzzle together in the glassroom. we will definitely be referring friends to stay here, thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
Happy New Year
