Several professional tournament fishermen have stayed with us!  Here are some nice emails we’ve received…. “Kim, it was a fun week staying with you and Carl.  We really enjoyed the company and the house.”  John Crews, Bassmaster Pro-Elite Fisherman. 

Other Pro’s have included Bassmaster-MLF Ish Monroe, who has a standing reservation when a tourney’s in town.   FLW-Bassmaster-MLF Brandon Coulter,  Bassmaster-MLF Dean Rojas, Bassmaster-MLF Fletcher Shryock, Rookie Gerald Sensabaugh (had recently retired as a Dallas Cowboy) Gerald texted… “Thanks for everything.  I really enjoyed my stay.  You guys are awesome.  If I get to be a pro, me and Crews and Ish are going to fight to stay at your house. LOL”


Other nice emails we’ve received from fishermen visiting from all around the U.S.:
“It was great fishing and the accommodations as well as the proximity to the fishing action were fantastic.

“Our stay at the Guest House was perfect. The GH was way better than the pictures you have on your website. Your advice where to fish was spot on.
This was the best bass fishing trip that I have been on size wise. Many of the largemouth over 3 lbs. One 5.2 two  4+. My biggest
smallmouth 4.8,  most over 2lbs. Thanks, Mike”

“Kim, this is an awesome place.  You have a wonderful set up and very well thought out.  We will be back.  Thanks for everything.”

“Thank you for having us. We spent a lot of time fishing and eating at all the restaurants
on the lake…  best vacation ever.  Look forward to coming back.”

We appreciate the opportunity to stay at your place and look forward to more trips in the future.”

“We had a fantastic time and couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to stay. This was the first time I’ve been on a fishing trip and felt as
if I were at home. I’m looking forward to (coming back in) July.”

Thanks for the accommodations!  Everything was here that we needed, and then some.  The price was reasonable and the location was perfect.”

“Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at your cottage.  We thought everything was very nice and found it extremely
helpful that you and your husband Carl took the time to show and tell us about some of the spots around your home. We all agreed that it was the best place that we have stayed on Lake St. Clair. We are looking forward to a return visit.  Thanks again for the hospitality.”

I thought I’d take a minute to let you know how much I enjoyed the trips to your place at the lake. I know in both trips I made up there everyone
was very happy with the accommodations  and especially the hospitality we received from you & Carl. It was also nice having Carl helping out with our fishing strategies,
that’s a pretty big lake and it would have been tough to fish without a little advice. I’ll probably be getting back with you soon to schedule for next year.”

“Thanks Kim & Carl for an awesome stay. We will be customers for life. We will be in touch for our next visit!”

I just wanted to thank you and Carl for your hospitality.  The guest house worked out great, it was clean and well maintained.  You clearly have done a great job setting the place up, and thinking through what your guests would need.  I’ll be back!

Thanks for everything.  We had a wonderful vacation.  Your guest house has all the comforts of home.  We will be back.  Mike and Linda
