We really enjoyed our stay and the house was more then what we expected. The lake is wonderfully clean and we really enjoyed taking the pontoon boat out daily. We only had one small problem and the owner acknowledged it and handled it without question. I would certainly rent this home again!

By Jill (Denver Colorado)
This home was beautiful. Everything looks/is brand new and has every amentity you could ask for. My kids loved the zipline, tire swing and huge beach area. We loved the fire pit, boat and privacy. The large family room easily fit my family of 10- with room for everyone. The kitchen has every appliance you would need, and the front loader washer/dryer was great! We would definitely rent this home again. Beautiful!

Reviews by prior rentals: By Vickie (Reese, Michigan)
This is a great place to stay for a family that is large and needs their space. I was amazed at how much room we all had and how great the sun room was for everyone as we could shut the door to the rest of the house and watch TV or just play games. The pontoon is a must if you go and great on gas! My family enjoyed boating around the lake and fishing for blue gills. The house has everything and anything you need! Just bring yourself and your clothes! This area is very quiet and on a dead end street that allows beautiful and peaceful walks at anytime....the neighbors are very friendly too! My family and I will have a hard time topping this home. Parrish Family .

Were to begin? This was our first trip to Michigan and it was better than we could have ever expected. The Collin's home on Green Lake was just perfect. The rental came with everything you could possibly need and room to spare. Don't forget to rent the pontoon boat - you'll be sorry if you don't. The area and lake was peaceful and laid back - no need to rush if your don't want. There is so much to see and do in and around Traverse City - we highly recommend the area for a vacation and the Collin's home is the prefect home base for the trip of a life time.

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: I was born in Michigan and married a beautiful woman who grew up in the Traverse City area. We currently live in Texas but enjoy every minute of our time in northern Michigan.
