"We had a wonderful stay in the upstairs and downstairs units. The units were clean and VERY well stocked. We had our family of 5 (three teenage children) plus both sets of grandparents and brother in law. We had PLENTY of room for sleeping and relaxing. We have used VRBO units many times (Hawaii, Minnesota, Washington DC, etc.) -- I would say the main upstairs unit had the BEST assortment of cookware/dishes I have ever experienced. We have food allergies and some picky eaters so we usually prepare 95% of our meals at the condos where we stay - I was very pleasantly surprised by the cookware. Nothing crazy fancy, but just a very nice assortment of different cooking pieces and all in good shape.
Enjoyed working with the owners:
We had a small issue the first night we arrived - I sent an email to the owners and had a personal phone call within two hours to help solve the problem. (Turned out the problem was us, not the unit in any way.) I would highly recommend these units."

"My husband, 2 kids (12, 14) and I took a last minute trip. This was the first time that I had booked a room through an individual owner versus a property. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the owner was great to work with, email and texting, and the property is accurately described. The unit is very clean and well supplied. The unit is a lower unit, but is easily accessible by a walkway the wraps around and down the side. The only cons are that two of the beds are very firm and didn't agree with my RA, and the shower head is in need of an update. Because the unit is in the lower level, there are few windows and is very dark if lights aren't kept on.
We enjoyed the Boyne grounds by swimming at the Clock Tower pool (90 degrees!) and huge hot tub, chairlift ride, lawn games, and arcade. Stopped in for drinks one evening at the Pierson's Grille. Everretts for breakfast while good, was way over priced.
Off property one of our favorite restaurants is Sante Cafe in Boyne City. Once again they didn't disappoint. Petoskey is just a 20 min drive and I finally got to go to the Polish Kitchen (delish!). Petoskey State Park beach is beautiful. For another offsite adventure, my husband and kids enjoyed a trip to the Wildwood Zip Line located abour 15 minutes from the Boyne property."

"Our group of 10 (5 couples) spent the weekend skiing and celebrating a 50th birthday. Idlewood was the perfect spot and accommodated us in every way. We initially had plans to venture out at night, but decided to stay in as the home really allowed us to relax and enjoy each other's company. The skiing was great - truly ski in/out. The kitchen was great. The fireplace was great. The owner of the home was quickly responsive to all my questions beforehand, and a pleasure to work with. This is a highly recommended destination and we look forward to returning."
