Tranquil and Relaxing
"We chose this perfect little cottage so we could be close to the waters of Lake Michigan. In the evening we were able to enjoy campfires on the beach area and relax by the water. The property is very well kept. The owners were very pleasant to talk with. We visited the Fish Hatchery of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, which was not far from our cottage. We toured the Kilwins Chocolate Factory. Visited nearby towns of Petrosky, Charlevoix and Harbor Springs. Very nice place. Would stay again and will be telling our friends about it."

Michigan was exceptionally good with our stay at the cottage we found through VRBO
"My wife Margaret & I have traveled the world for 43 years. As "senior travelers", we look forward to trips and expect the best in accommodations/lodging.
We always heard how lovely Michigan was in the summer. Coming from the south. we were looking for cooler weather mostly.
Not only did we find cooler weather but we found the incredible beauty of Michigan with it's many lakes, forest, rolling hills & farm lands. We explored from Kalamazoo in the southwest all the way north to Munising and the Picture Rocks National Lakeshore throughout August.
Friends ask us about our favorite part of this special month in Michigan. We say our time in Northwest Petoskey. With the length of our stay in Michigan we wanted a home not a hotel room. We found the perfect cottage for us. The location was just a few mile north of Petoskey. Everything we wanted to see and do in the area was within a short drive. The cottage was very spacious. The cottage exceeded our expectations in every way. It's furnishings/decor, it's size could not have been better. The property was very clean and well maintained. The owner had material in the home that provided helpful tips on things to see & do in the area. Anytime we had questions throughout our stay, the owner was always available by phone to answer our questions. We love golf & found an abundance of fine golf in the area. We love sailing and found the perfect sunset cruise back in Charlevoix. Another day was spent on the lake just across the street exploring for adventure by renting a pontoon boat.
We have seen many places in our 44 years of travel. Our trip to Michigan was lovely. We would highly recommend the cottage to anyone traveling through the Northwest Petoskey area. Don & Margaret Austin, Texas"

"My Family was looking for a home and a great renter and Carolyn was incredible! As we both searched for dates that worked, she was patient, understanding, and tried as hard as we did to make it work! I recommend her and this home!"

"My husband and I plus friends had a wonderful week at your cottage last week. The cottage is very nice and exactly as pictured. We especially enjoyed the sandy beach and easy access to the bike trails. Everyday we took a ride into town on our bikes. It helped keep the pounds off from eating at the excellent restaurants in the area. Our husbands were very successful fishing, catching many pan fish, large mouth bass and even a couple of very large northern pike. There is something for everyone to do in the area. Thank you for sharing your cottage with us."
