Wonderful place for a large group. The kitchen table was awesome to gather around for games and meals. Had everything we need and more. Would definitely return.

“Best getaway”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This house was a fantastic weekend getaway. The whole neighborhood feels like you are secluded from the world. So peaceful and small town feeling. The house is massive. We had 12 adults and 9 kids. We were always occupied with the campfire, the pool/ping pong, and the table soccer game. There was space everywhere! Three refridgerators, two sets of washing machines, two houses, and a million decks! Definitely will be coming back. The management office was incredibly nice. The check out is at 10am not 7pm like listed just for a heads up!

“Nice place with plenty of space”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I stayed here with a large group of families for an annual late summer get away. The house was clean and modern with ample amount of space for us and the kids. The Beachwalk resort is very family friendly. Our only wish for the house is that there were more outdoor space to hang out together in. Otherwise, everything there is great

“Exceptional Accommodations for Extended Family”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Queen Bee and Buzz Inn were exceptional in capacity, location, decor, and hospitality. There was nothing lacking!! We had an extended family of 21 which included 6 children under 4yo, several teens and college-aged adults. Everyone felt at home as the kitchen was truly fully stocked with every cooking utensil needed, the furnishings and bedrooms abundant and cozy, and the laundry/bathrooms able to handle a crowd. The place was immaculately clean. Phone/email contact with the owners was prompt, professional, and courteous. The extensive beach on Lake Michigan was absolutely beautiful and fishing off the pier (with only basic poles and little experience) brought in huge steelhead trout. We had a list of activities to do in the surrounding area, but ended up staying on the property most of the time since there was so much to do! We left wishing we had a few more days to enjoy more of the amenities within beachwalk itself! The owners showed great attention to detail---for example, the kitchen table is gigantic and awesome, had over 20 beautiful wood chairs, Tiffany stained glass lighting overhead, large candles, and even place mats! The dishes and glassware and silverware were also extensive. It was impressive not to have to use paper products to accommodate our large family at every meal!! Queen Bee and Buzz Inn are Highly recommended!!!

Liked best: Ample room and cleanliness. Ability to spread out and find privacy regardless of our large group.
Liked least: Lake Kai was being treated during our stay so we were unable to use paddleboards and kayaks.

“Fabulous family house with plenty of space and a great guest house!”

We absolutely loved the Queen Bee! It is spacious, well appointed, and perfect for large families or groups. The guest house is great for the matriarch and patriarch or a small family. The beautiful dining table is wonderful for large family meals seating over 20 people! 5 minutes to the beach but if you don't want to walk there's a golf cart. Friendly and responsive owners were a pleasure to work with. No doubt, we will stay again at the Queen Bee!

“Don't Think Twice---Book It While You Can!”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Queen Bee and it’s coach house Buzz Inn can’t be beat for families, extended families, and groups of friends. My experience, which included 9 adults and 10 lively kids under 10, was relaxing and enjoyable due to generous bed/bath suites spread out over several floors. The kids were able to make noise and run around and have plenty of space while the adults still had their own private space to relax.

The ground level in phenomenal: large screen tv, foosball, pool, frig, bath and the coolest build in bunk setup I had ever seen. Two queen beds below two lofted twins. So well done.
Beds, sheets, and towels are provided and are quality. Bathrooms had really nice tile floors, with good mirrors and lighting. Throughout, are wood floors in great condition, if not new. The owners wisely carpeted all the stairs going from floor to floor to keep things quiet. Smart move. And wait till you see the dining room table! This table was a workhorse for us when feeding our crowd. Sturdy heavy wood chairs for 20, and bar seating for another 4. One side of the table leads to a high end fully equipped kitchen and the other showcases an impressive fire place.
There are outdoor porches everywhere - I couldn't even count them there were so many - so be together or alone. Love the option. The Buzz Inn Coach House sits right in front on the property. The second floor houses an enormous bedroom suite with a jetted tub and full bathroom. Main floor completes the house w/ a full kitchen, dining and living room.
This property won’t disappoint! Grab it quick.
