Group of 8 enjoyed long weekend at Halcyon House
Group of 8 enjoyed long weekend at Halcyon House
We found Halcyon House to be affordable, well equipped and very comfortable for our group of 8 adults and one baby. With couples and singles in the group, all were able to have the privacy and comfort we wanted and enjoy group time in the kitchen and living room areas. There is even more room in the Teen Room that we did not utilize. The property is well located with a recreational beach, Traverse City and Empire Beach nearby. Most of our activities took place in Traverse City and we found that a very easy drive to and from the house. Interested parties with pets or small children should be aware that the property is on a fairly traveled street. However, street noise is not an issue, and with proper supervision, this should pose no problem. I will recommend this property to friends or relatives planning to travel to the Traverse City area.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
Quite frankly, we were a bit disappointed when we first moved to Michigan from Anchorage, AK. Our active lifestyle in Alaska, became difficult to maintain when we no longer had the mountains to climb or the miles of groomed ski trails to traverse. An anniversary trip to Traverse City (without the children) changed our minds about Michigan and we began looking for vacation rental property. It took us about 7 months, but we believe we found the perfect place.
