ReviewsWrite a review
5 of us stayed at the Good Hart Retreat and loved it! It was one of the coldest weekends of the year and we had a great time bundled up inside with board games and wine. The only issue we had was when we were leaving. Our car batteries had died (two cars) because of the freezing temps, but the caretaker quickly came to the rescue and the people of Good Hart truely were amazing. Would definitely recommend the area and the Good Hart Retreat... Just don't take our weekend!

What a way to ring in the New Year! Good Hart is the perfect way to unwind in the middle of nature. It was below zero so we enjoyed many fires, lots of cooking, playing games and enjoying the views! It's beautifully decorated, well stocked, grand fireplace, cozy feeling, yet lots of space to curl up and relax. We had the pleasure of meeting Nancy who made sure our stay was perfect...including watching MSU on game day! ;-) Our kids 5 and 7 loved sharing the upstairs and have already asked when we're going back! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home.

Perfect place in Northern Michigan
Perfect place in Northern Michigan
AMAZING! Our family has rented 6 VRBO properties over the last couple of years and this by far was the easiest, best value, best service and our most enjoyable vacation spot yet. The house is even more beautiful than the pictures can show. So many comfortable cozy areas. There was more than enough space for privacy for all of us or too get together as a family of 6. Every detail was there: The bathrobes that came in handy for going to the hot tub and watch the snow fall. every utensil and appliance a kitchen could ever need, even 100s of movies. The service was just as exceptional. Nancy, the owner, made the process easy even with our last minute booking. She supplied all the information we need. Firewood was not only delivered for our stay, but stacked neatly jut outside the door with more ready next to the fireplace. The drive was plowed every day we were there even though our car never moved. The adults ventured out to walk to the cute store 1/2 mile down the quiet road. (get a pot pie to cook at home). If the teenagers weren't in the hot tub they were outside snow showing. Even though they had wifi, their noses wasn't always pointed at their phone. That maybe the best review of the entire experience. We most highly recommend this property. It's everything VRBO should be.

Rainy Day get-a-way
Rainy Day get-a-way
We were looking for a nicely appointed rental for an October "Leaf Peeper" get-a-way. The Good Hart Retreat more than satisfied every item on our checklist! We were met within minutes of our check-in time and given a warm welcome and thorough tour of the property and amenities. We loved all the little private areas to get comfy and read books or use the included WiFi to surf the net. The Sun had other plans for our week so we made friends with the wind and rain and did less leaf peeping and more shopping and dining. It's a perfect base camp for day trips to Charlevoix, Cross Village, Petoskey and Harbor Springs. I think my favorite memory was the smell of the chicken pot pie from the Good Hart General Store baking in the oven while a driving rain pelted the windows. The warmth and solid structure of this log home calls to Winter vacationers as well. It would be a great place for downhill or x-country skiers. The owners truly made us feel like WE were the "owners" and for that we give the Good Hart Retreat 5 Stars

Amazing house, great times had by all!
Amazing house, great times had by all!
My husband and I chose this home to host our closest friends and were joined by our parents to say our vows during our stay. We had a fabulous time! Smack dab in the middle of the Tunnel of Trees, just a quick bike ride to the charming village of Good Hart and Lake Michigan. The weather was phenomenal, the sites were gorgeous and our special day was perfect. Thanks so much to Nancy for a fabulous weekend, she was so helpful in setting up our day and thanks to her I met a fabulous lady who made my bouquet for me. We will definitely be back for anniversaries and special occasions to come!

We just left this morning and we already want to go back! This house is amazing...everything in it is amazing and it is completely and totally equipped with everything you can imaging and then some. We had our family, including our two Jack Russell's, and we all enjoyed the Good Hart Retreat and would have loved to stay another week. Nancy and Lindsay were very helpful and accommodating. The hot tub was a huge hit as were the many bicycles that were available for use. We rode down to the General Store, which has amazing pies by the way! Took the trails down to the beach to look for Petoskey stones and take pics of the sunsets. We had one perfect week of weather which we took complete advantage of. We went to Legs Inn in Cross Village...a place not to miss! We went to Boyne Highlands for some ziplining and Segway off-road riding. Went shopping in Petoskey and Harbor Springs and took a day trip up to Tahquamenon Falls and Whitefish Point. The beds were extremely comfortable, as was all of the furnishings. We used the gas grill to make our dinners and ate on the outside table on the wrap-around deck. Oh...can't forget the outdoor swing! Reminded me of a swing we had at the cottage we used to go to when I was a child. So if you are looking for a wonderful place to get away that has all of the essentials PLUS, look no further!

Was a wonderful getway for my husband and our very dear friends- After the holidays and having the kids home for 2 weeks all 4 of us were ready to get away. The home is beautiful and the tub was a wonderful relaxation each night, Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much Nancy!

We rented the Good Hart Retreat to have a Family gathering for Christmas that would give us something special. And Special it was. The day we were to get there Nancy called me to make sure we knew it had snowed a foot the night before and that travel may be difficult, how many hotels would do that for you? We were traveling about 4 hours north, and the conditions did get interesting but the reward at the end was wonderful. The house is beautiful, and gave us everything we needed, including being decorated for Christmas. We spent a day at Boyne Mountain to play at the water park and so the boys could also snowboard. The evenings were spent simply enjoying each others company. We had two older children and their spouses, their combined three children at 3, 2 1/2 and a 1 1/2, our youngest son at 17, my mom and then hubby and myself and the cabin was a good fit. We have not been able to spend this much time with all of us together for a long time and it was absolutely wonderful. Everything is well maintained and items you need and more are available. We did bring our own spices for cooking because we were planning a big Christmas dinner. All of our children enjoyed themselves immensely and the grandchildren didn't want to leave. The gentleman who owns the general store just half mile away was extremely kind and charming. The next nearest store with needed items was about 12 miles away. Despite the snow, the roads had been cleared, and the folks taking care of the cabin had still gotten the drive cleared and the cabin ready, and it was very much appreciated. We could bring our Shepherd, and since she is a member of the family, we always look for a place that lets us bring her along. We also appreciated that the first floor bedroom had its own bathroom as my mom has difficulty with stairs and this was perfect for her. Our last day Nancy called to make sure everything had gone well, we had talked when I first rented the cabin about how much this time together was going to mean for us all, and I very much appreciated the personal touch of her phone calls to ensure all went well for us. We spent time talking and playing games, no one bothered with the internet and while the grandkids watched a couple movies, the rest of us took advantage of just enjoying the setting and each other. It was a marvelous weekend.

We stayed at the Good Hart retreat in late June of this year. It was absolutely awesome in all respects: the house itself was great -- Lots of room, really well designed and decorated, comfortable, and spacious. It was spotless and really well stocked with both kitchen and general items like bug spray, kleenex, lotions, etc. The owner was extremely helpful without being intrusive. I would absolutely recommend this property!

What you see is what you get. It could not have been a better home if you had built it ourselves. The owner did everthing to make our visit a great one. Our whole family went and they all want to go back next year.You could not rent a better place for a vacation or just to get away.
