    Jessica L from Howard, OH recommends this vacation rental

    This rental is exactly like it looks in the pictures! Beautifully furnished and decorated, amazing view and close to little shops and great food. I would recommend this place to anyone and would stay here again. Very rarely to do find a rental that is exactly as it’s described. I would have given it 5 stars instead of 4 if there wasn’t’ a problem with the electric on the outside wall. We were unable to use the ceiling fan or lamps on the outside walls. This makes those spaces unusable during the evening. Thankfully we were brought an extension cord so that we could still watch the TV. There were also still dishes in the dishwasher that we had to put away. My only suggestion to the owners would be to maybe include some board games for days when it’s raining, or you just want to stay inside and enjoy this beautiful condo.

      Hi Jessica- we are glad you enjoyed your stay despite the electrical issues. We are very sorry for that inconvenience but we so appreciated your understanding as we worked to resolve. Glad you had a good experience otherwise. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

    We loved the property, location. It had some damaged things picture behind door had a hole in it and blinds sting was broken. Getting into the building was a pain the code would not work all the time . That was very frustrating. Besides those things we had a great experience. Thank you !

      Hi Rick - thank you for leaving this review. I'm sorry to hear that you had issues with the front door, it does tend to get a little sticky especially in warm temperatures, we will be sure to share this feedback with the management of the building. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

    Richard T from Arlington, TX recommends this vacation rental

    This condo was a designer marvel; from color coordinated furnishings to the littlest details on all surfaces. The appliances were new and high end models. Everything was new and fresh. Little details appreciated, dishwashing soap, extra trash bags. The beds were comfy, bedding very nice, towels soft. Nice closets. TV's new, cable appreciated. Loved that there was a separate entry into the building so you didn't have to go directly into the unit from the street. Walking distance to downtown and Manistee's wonderful board walk along the canal. We were lucky enough to watch a freighter go under the bridge outside our patio. Note: you do hear the traffic going across the bridge; however I did not have any problem sleeping. Loved my stay. I've rented several condos from Unsalted vacations and have been very satisfied with each stay.

      Hi Pamela - thanks so much for leaving this review. Freighter View is a beautiful unit, so happy you were able to make great memories there. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit!

    a guest from annapolis, MD recommends this vacation rental

    Overall I was pleased with the experience renting Freighterview. For a two bedroom condo, it was very spacious and the location within super easy walking distance of downtown Manistee can't be beat. We even had the good fortune of a freighter passing by and that was a thrill.

    There were some issues, most probably due to the unit being so new. There was no clothes bar in the closet in the master bedroom so there was no place to put hangers, i.e. no way to hang clothes! Also, while there was dishsoap in the kitchen, there was no soap in either of the bathrooms. I have no problem with hand/body soap not being provided but it should have been indicated on the instructions.

    A big issue is that this unit faces south so you have the sun all day in the main living area. That's nice except there were no blinds on the large french doors going out to the balcony and they have the living room sofa placed directly in front of those doors. So all day long you have the sun in your face and are trying to shield yourself from the glare. My group was wearing sunglasses the whole time!

    Finally, we were there in early December and, while the weather was mild for Michigan, it was cold in the unit even though we kept the temp around 73-74. When we arrived the thermostat was set at 68 and it was very cold. They should turn it up when they know guests are arriving. The high ceilings of the unit (12-14 feet?) add to the cold feeling. Bring sweaters.

    Other than those issues, it's a good buy for the price and you'll love the view and location.

    Awesome accommodations along the channel in downtown Manistee! Right next door to North Channel Brewing for those who may want to indulge and not worry about getting back home safely. If your lucky, like me, you may get to view one of the massive freighters make its way though the channel located just a few feet from this unit.

    • Manager Responded on 12/14/2017

      Tom - thank you very much for taking the time to leave this review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Freighter View, and we're so glad you got lucky enough to see one of the big ships pass through, it's quite the sight to see! Come see us again soon.

    a guest recommends this vacation rental

    We loved staying at Freighter View! We could walk to town by just crossing the bridge. In the summer, it will be fun to watch the boats go by as well. Note that this particular condo is an end unit right next to the bridge, so passers by can see inside, and if you are sensitive to road noise, you will hear all the cars going by. Outside of that, it is highly recommended for 2-4 guests. Lovely!

    Our stay was fabulous! What a relaxing time we had--which was the goal. The guys did some fishing at their normal fishing spot (sorry, top secret) :o) The gals did some shopping. We all relaxed, ate out at local area restaurants--mostly we walked to our destinations. We'd stay at this location again in a heartbeat!

    a guest from Fairfax, VA recommends this vacation rental

    We enjoyed a brief stay in this lovely condo in Manistee. The property is nicely appointed and the location is within walking distance of all Manistee has to offer. If you are staying for more than a long weekend or want to explore beyond the beach, plan some day trips to the many destinations along M22. Manistee is quaint but very small. Our visit was great for our small family. The only drawback is the condo is located at street level on the main drawbridge so privacy shades are a must at night and early morning and the ones installed at the property were very both difficult to reach (tall windows) and very difficult to operate.

    • Manager Responded on 8/9/2017

      Thanks for your review of Freighter View! We're so glad you enjoyed your vacation. Thank you also for your recommendations regarding the window coverings. We will certainly keep that in mind. Hope to have you back next year!

    a guest from Grand Rapids, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Excellent location right in heart of downtown on the river. Beautiful appointment and furnishings in newly built/renovated building. A few suggestions for the property owners/managers: need more light blankets, a few more plates (5 is not enough) and less decor on all surfaces. While it looks great, it's hard to find places to put things with so much of the surfaces filled.

    Also - the only freighter we saw during our long weekend stay arrived at 4am Monday. May be helpful to know as it is exciting to see but very loud.

    Robert S from Belvidere, IL recommends this vacation rental

    We had three condos in the Edgewater complex in order to accommodate children, grandchildren, etc. All were beautiful, clean and well appointed. The downtown location was very convenient. We were close to restaurants and stores. We walked to the coffee shop every morning and the ice cream store every evening. Both beaches in town were just a few blocks away and very nice with clean bath houses and refreshment stands. An added bonus was we got to see a freighter navigate the channel right outside our balcony. Awesome! Manistee is great for a small town relaxing vacation. Also we were very impressed with the extraordinary customer service provided by Unsalted Vacations.

    We had a wonderful time staying at Freighterview! The location was perfect in a brand new refurbished (not yet finished) building on the river across the bridge from the heart of downtown. It'll be even nicer when the building is complete and the craft brewery opens up next door. Condo was perfectly clean.

    • Manager Responded on 7/21/2017

      Wow, thanks for your kind review! Great to hear you enjoyed your stay at Freighter View! And yes, we are looking forward to the brewery opening up next door too!
