Very nice rental!
Very nice rental!
My family had the opportunity to visit Traverse City and we were fortunate to stay at this charming home. We enjoyed the home so much. Everything was at our finger-tips and it was very well equipped. All we needed to do was just pack our clothes. Communication with the owner was awesome and I highly recommend you consider this home for your Traverse area visit.

Great location, but no place to put a boat
Great location, but no place to put a boat
Overall this home was very well kept up and had great updates. Loved the hot tub!! The location was amazing, close to everything. The only complaint we had was we were told that there would be a dock, depending on water levels, and a mooring ball. There were neither. So we were forced to put in our boat into other lakes and marinas every day. The beach was very rocky, so bring your water shoes or plan on going to another beach, because you can't swim by the beach. The kitchen is not very stocked so plan on bringing some things from home: salt and pepper, tuper wear, tin foil, paper towels, any thing you may need that is not basic (plates, cups, silverware, some pots and pans are provided). Overall we loved the place, just wished we were a bit more prepared of what we needed and what to expect. Hopefully this will help with your upcoming stay.

Owner response: Hi Amanda , Thank you for your feedback , as I tell all of our potential guests that the water levels are down and therefore does create a rocky shoreline , but there is a groomed beach as we did improve the beach last year.. we also have the home adjacent that also has the improved beach. I do not promise that the dock will be in nor is it listed as having a dock in the VRBO listing. Unfortunately nothing I can do about the shoreline, the shoreline is the same throughout the bay area. There is a mooring bouy at the property, it just may look like it is next door ( which we also own and rent) Had you called during your stay we would have been happy to tell you. Regarding supplies at the house, we do provide the basics ,adequate dishes , pots and pans glassware etc, naturally over the course of a season some things do disapear. We are always available to supply or restock if requested. Thank you for your thoughts and for leaving the property in such nice condition we will endeavor to improve the kitchen inventory. Hope to see you next year ( maybe the water levels will be up then) Pamela (owner)
