Thank you for letting us stay in your little piece of paradise! This was truly a holiday of a life time. We have fallen in love with the house, lake and area and will definitely return! Going to miss the sunsets over Lower Herring.
Thank-you for allowing us to spend two weeks in this beautiful cottage surrounded by such a wonder place! This is always the best two weeks of our year.
Great visit! Our second time on this very peaceful and serene lake. Three visits from the Blueheron. What a treat.
Fun and family. What more could we ask for? Thanks for the great vacation!
This was the second visit for our family and again we had a wonderful time. Our son and nephews enjoyed playing in the lake. My son caught his first fish. All in all this is just the perfect setting for family memories. It was great to take a break and have everyone together here. Thank you so much for being such good hosts and for sharing this place with our family.
“Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed the cottage this past week. Thank you for the opportunity to rent it.”
“Thank you for making this stay possible. We loved your cabin – ”
“Beautiful 4th of July week. Visited all of our favorites. Lower Herring is a beautiful lake and the weather was perfect.”
“Thank you for a wonderful place to rejuvenate ourselves. The attention to all of our up front questions and responsiveness to any issues was quick and complete. Having the wonderful 88.7 Interlochen radio station playing that relaxing/classical music upon arrival. Enjoyed the fishing and swimming.”
“Once again we had a nice time. Lucky you, you get to stay!”
“Our 1st time here and it was lovely. We spent our days exploring the area and returned here for relaxing evenings. Fish were hiding for the most part but canoeing was great.”
“I had so much fun here! It was amazing to see all the different places around here. The scenery is so pretty. I can’t wait to come back again soon.”
“The place was gorgeous! There were many things to do and downtown Frankfort is a great place. The canoe ride from here to Lake Michigan is breathtaking at sunset. See the blue heron and woodpeckers made you appreciate northern Michigan. Cannot wait to come back.”
“We had a great time enjoying the area and the beautiful weather on the lake. I’m certain the time we spent together here as a family will always be a cherished memory. The boys loved playing in the sand and wading into the lake. We love this area and have visited several times. We like the town of Frankfort, the Cherry Hut’s pies, the Cherry Bowl Drivein, sunsets by the lighthouse, and the lakes. The cottage was perfect, the setting was peaceful and comfortable and we appreciated your hospitality during our stay.”
“I really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. My favorite part is watching the sunset. We live near the city so we almost never get to see the sunset like that! boy! Is Lake Michigan cold, or what? I practically froze to death trying to get into it! Gwen Frostic’s house is very cool too! I liked the part with the fish pond. Also, I liked the ferns. Thanks again. (age 10)”

“We have really enjoyed the Labor Day Weekend here. The weather has been good, but the fish have been hiding from us. Your cottage is very nice. We would recommend it to others and will plan to return. Thank you.”
“Our vacation was very enjoyable. We thought the countryside was beautiful; we saw different birds that we do not normally see in South Caroline, the deer, black squirrels and best of all the fox that came to visit. Fishing was great.”
“We enjoyed staying in your cottage. We saw many beautiful sunsets and enjoyed all the wonderful things to do in this area!”
“We enjoyed staying here very much. I grew up every summer on this lake. It had been 10 years since I had been here before last year and this year. I am passing on this beautiful place to my children so they will bring their families here one day too! The cottage was perfect for us and so close to the water.”
“How we loved your cabin – the view, the comfort – thanks for being such wonderful landlords. We look forward to talking music next summer.”
“We had a great time here. The cottage is a wonderful place (bigger than most we have stayed in) and comfortable. The fish were hiding from us as well, but we did find a few. Hope to stay again.”

“What a wonderful week! After the craziness of all the preparations fro our daughter’s wedding, your cottage was just what we needed. We enjoyed all the area had to offer – biking, hiking, canoeing, golfing, sunbathing, wading and the beautiful view! (and so many places to get delicious ice cream!) Your home was very welcoming – I love the shortcut to Lake Michigan!! Thanks for your hospitality.”

Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy your peaceful Lower Herring retreat again this year. Such rustic charm and serenity! We love being in Benzie County and feel that the Matzinger Cottage is on of the area’s best sep secrets.
Will tuck all of our 2017 memories away and eagerly await our return. More fish left to catch, more trials to hike and many more sunsets left to enjoy!
Again fabulous time – fantastic time. Look forward to next year!
Lovely as usual. Had a great time. Great place for fun and Family.
