  • Simply Charming

    "The cabin was clean, charming and nicely decorated. It was the perfect size for 4 of us, but definitely would accomodate 6. It's a quick walk to the beach. I didn't count steps, but seeing other properties with the endless staircases made me appreciate our easy walk to the beach. The beach is a combination of sand and rocks, but there is plenty of sandy beach on the stretch. My kids (11& 14) chose to make a game of standing on the giant rocks and jumping off. This was our first time in northern Michigan. The view and water were breathtaking. We spotted an eagle every evening around 5pm looking for his evening meal. The house is located close to the Good Hart General Store, which is perfect for simple items. The draw for the store is that it's the only place for miles around for food. It's on M119 (tunnel of trees), which makes it a perfect stop for those doing the scenic tour up Lake Michigan. A few adorable shops and a delicious Crepes stand make it the perfect place to get a snack or even an "on the go" meal. Oh, and the pies at Good Hart…both sweet and savory. Worth it. It was close enough to do a day trip to Harbor Springs or Mackinaw. Back to the house: The owners were very helpful in answering my questions and letting us know what to expect and what we might need to bring. They really had everything there that we needed to enjoy our stay. The dishwasher was a nice bonus as well. :-) We were able to get cell phone reception, but it truly was about "checking out" for awhile. No wifi or television. The kids brought DVD's to watch when they needed some down time or the weather was bad. We had a great time."

  • Boardman River Cottage

    "Four longtime friends recently retired and decided to celebrate with a girls' color-tour getaway. Beautiful location with nice amenities like fireplace, firepit, and hot tub. It's only a 20-minute drive to downtown Traverse City, so we also visited the Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas. Great three days! Just make sure to get good directions to the cottage in advance--it's on a private road and doesn't show up on mapping apps."

  • Truly Beautiful!

    "My family and I spent a week in this beautiful home and considered it our best vacation ever. The home was clean and fresh and the surrounding area is stunning. The owners were accommodating and easy to work with from the initial contact through to our departure. The view of Lake Michigan from the house, both inside and outside, is incredible! We felt very much at home and hated to leave, but we left rested and full of great memories."
