                            This house was perfect for our clan, 3 children, 6 adults, and 3 dogs. The house had enough space for all of us, but we actually didn't spend much time in it, as we enjoyed the wonderful out door activities, volleyball, canoeing, fishing and the lake. What made it super perfect is the host Captain Jack, as he really means when he says my house is yours, enjoy and call him if you have questions or need anything. The kennel for the dogs was perfect, always in the shade and after swimming in the morning they napped all afternoon. The lake is not crowded for boating activities so we really enjoyed canoe trips and we actually brought a larger boat for tubing. The kids ages 7 & 5 could easily swim to the raft and enjoy hours of jumping off and the 18 month old could sit in the water and enjoy playing with buckets. Town was very close when we wanted to spend a day taking our bikes to the TART trail or walking about TC. And there is a coffee shop in biking and walking distance as well as an authentic mexican place where we enjoyed take out. It was a perfect week, a most gracious and wonderful host. The only bad thing is we had to go home.

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers, pet owners, families with young children.

                            This was a great place to stay. The house was perfect, clean, washer and dryer, and great kitchen. We loved the volleyball pit. We loved playing a good sibling rivalry game. Being right on the lake was great. Jack was a great host and the boat ride on the NautiCat was so much fun. Shopping in Traverse City was only a short distance away. Very convenient. I would definitely stay again.

                            The lake served as a pre-wedding location for 5 adults and 6 children...it was perfect. Jack was great to work with, he went out of his way to help us. We needed a bus to transport the wedding party, Jack made a phone call and a bus was reserved. The 47' catamaran ride on West Bay was absolutely amazing. The wedding party agreed that it was one of the highlights of the week. I would recommend this property to anyone with small children or families who just want to relax and enjoy the lake.

                            Our extended family, all adults, stayed in this house July 2011. We loved it! The lake is beautiful and very clean. The house had plenty of living space and a huge kitchen. We had a service dog with us and there is a pen in the back yard with fence that was perfect for our day trips. It did not have AC during our stay, but with the windows open it was perfect at night. We enjoyed the close location to Traverse City and the dunes. It also comes with a washer/dryer which was perfect for a week long stay.

                            Our group had 6 adults and 4 kids from 18 months to 13 years. The house had everything we needed and worked out perfectly. The setup of the house allowed our son and his family to have the whole upstairs, which had 4 twins in one room for the kids, another bedroom for the adults, as well as a full bath, kitchen and living room with balcony. The first floor had the same features with one bedroom and our daughter and her boyfriend had a full bedroom in the basement. The living room on the first floor had plenty of room for everyone and opened to the full deck with table and grill. This setup really worked well to give each family a little privacy and still plenty of room to be together. Volleyball was a big hit and the court got used almost every day, plus we had a built in sandbox for the granddaughters. The view of the lake was beautiful and the kids even got to watch several hot air baloons sail low over the lake and land nearby one evening. We took turns using the canoe and the lake is very pretty for a paddle any time of the day. If you like fishing, talk to Jack about a charter, the guys all went out on a Sunday morning and we had a great time fishing for lake trout. My wife and I also fished with Jack later in the week for salmon and had a wonderful time in spite of not quite perfect weather. If you are not into the fishing, take advantage of the Nauti-Cat cruise. All 10 of us went on the cruise and it gives you a great trip as well as beautiful views of the bay. The house is in a great location with Traverse City only 5 or 6 miles away if you want to get downtown, but there is a shopping mall and access to almost any store you might need even closer. Jack is a great host and helped make our week very special with the fishing and cruise. If you are looking for a great place to stay that will nicely accomodate a fair number of people I would highly recommend that you contact Jack.

                            #1 - what a great landlord! #2 - the house was very clean and spacious and provided all the room that we needed. #3 - the area outside for boating and relaxing was just awesome. #4 - Ernie had a great time in the kennel/fenced yard. #4 - the restuarant stove/griddle in the downstairs kitchen was more fun then outdoor grilling. My family is definetly interested in going back next year and bringing another couple as we know they will enjoy too.... Thanks for a memorable vacation!

                            This house was perfect for our family of older young adults and one of their dogs! The master bedroom upstairs provided the perfect getaway for my husband when the card playing began! The best memory was the ride on Grand Traverse Bay! Thank you for providing our family with a forever memory of sharing a week together.

                            We had an amazing week. The home was very clean and we were incredibley pleased with the whole experience. We enjoyed reading and relaxing on the multiple decks while the kids played in the spacious yard or swam endlessly in the lake. My children loved watching all the activity on the lake, cooking marshmellows in the fire pit, and tubing around the lake. The cottage is so close to so many things - good restaurants, cute shopping downtown, etc.. We will definitely be back - a perfect fit for young and old!
