                        Our week on this private lake was just wonderful. We were looking for a week of complete downtime, but this location is great for day trips to Macinaw, Traverse City, Petosky, etc. The cottage is very clean and roomy. We only had the four of us, but could easily have accomodated 10. The owner was prompt in answering any questions and following up on our stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage - would even consider renting again.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, families with young children, pet owners, girls getaway.

                        Owner response: We appreciate good family renters like the Sunbathers! Thank you for staying with us. Anyone can post pictures on facebook. If you have some I would love to see them. Cheryl and John

                        Our stay at the home was excellent and the amenities were exactly as stated online and then some. The owner was great to work with and very helpful in providing tips on local attractions and restaurants, as well as directions for accessing the home and facilities. The house was very clean and well-maintained and the view of the lakefront was incredible from the deck on the back of the house. We would recommend this house to anyone for a nice relaxing getaway, family vacation, or golf trip as there are plenty of courses nearby.

                        Owner response: We are looking forward to seeing you back for a few more rounds of great golf and a relaxing vacation!

                        This is an awesome lakefront property located on a small private lake with minimal traffic and congestion on the water. There was plenty of room for 10 people - we had 7 adults and 3 children in our party. Downstairs area offers a separate living space for people tp spread out in. Traverse City and Petoskey are about an hour drive away for day trips and there are plently of golf courses in the surrounding area. Plenty of activities and restauarants in downown Gaylord as well. The house is very well-maintained and clean and there is no need to bring a lot of clothing since there is a state-of-the-art washing machine and dryer available for use in the home. I would highly recommend this property to a large family or several small groups. We had a great time!

                        This was a wonderful place. All information we received was accurate and we did not lack for one single thing. The setting was serene and tranquil and ideal for really relaxing. We would HIGHLY recommend for any group. TV;s in each bedroom, plus upstairs and downstairs so if you didn't like what was on in one place, just go to another!

                        My sons, their families and I spent a week at this cottage on Lake Arrowhead. The cottage was very clean and had everything one could want. The layout was perfect for the 9 of us. The boys especially enjoyed the fishing boat, kayaks and paddle boat. We visited some of the State Park beaches and also a few enjoyed the horseback riding which was close by. Everyone voted that we should do this again! The owners were exceptional in assisting in any way they could. Thanks Cheryl!

                        Owner response: We welcome more families to be our guests! Hope to see you all back soon!

                        This vacation home is spacious, clean, and comfortable. It was well-furnished and contained so many amenities, we realized immediately we had brought too much stuff -- beach toys and other comforts of home. Our 3 year old grandson was delighted with the toys he found in the house, and never played with those he brought from home. The kayaks, row boat, and paddle boat were so fun, and we all loved the pool. We never ventured off the property, except to the pool and park, and still found so much to do. I would highly recommend this vacation home for all ages, although an older member of our party was unable to traverse the many steps to the beach.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway.

                        Owner response: We are catering to families and doing improvements each year! Thanks!

                        The home is the perfect lake house! The view from the balcony is unbelievable. The main floor has 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and very spacious living room with a comfortable leather sectional. The lower floor has 2 bedrooms, a bathroom with a shower, large vanity area, living area and wet bar with a fridge. There is a cement stairway that leads down to the beach. The dock is very sturdy and provides a great place to fish. There is a mat in the sand that makes walking in the lake easy for small children (no weeds or growth). The only thing you need to bring is food. The home is very clean and is exactly like the pics in the ad. We used the pool a lot. It was a great place for our kids to meet other kids and they even spontaneously played football in the park. I kayaked around the lake and even saw a bald eagle in flight, land and grab a fish, and resume to the tree on the island no less than 20 yards from me. The kids caught tiny turtles, lots of fish and the men caught some great big bass! There is even an outdoor shower. Things to consider: it is not a good choice for someone with difficulty walking. The stairs can be a little challenging down to the lake. That said - my disabled mother stayed with us and loved her vacation remaining on the main floor and main floor balcony. We went to Macinac Island, ate fresh strawberries, saw a movie and had dinner in Gaylord besides just relaxing at the home. Excellent Trip!!!!! John or Cheryl were VERY available for all of our questions. They returned all our calls promptly.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, adventure seekers, families with young children.

                        Owner response: Thanks Michelle and Rob! Hope to see you back again! The bald eagle is amazing! Sounds like all had a wonderful time! John and Cheryl
