"We spent our annual two week long "up north" vacation in this home- what a beautiful home!!! It is very spacious- our party of four adults and two kids were easily accommodated! The most important part to me is that while the home is beautiful, you still feel very much at home and it is easy to find a space to just curl up and read a book or play a game. The kitchen was very well stocked for our trip and easy to use. We enjoyed the fenced back yard to be able to let the kids out back and watch them easily. The games and ping pong table were a welcome distraction when we had a few cloudy days.
The location is perfect- we walked to town nearly every day and it is less than a 10 minute drive to Young State Park. We saw many deer from the kitchen table and enjoyed the birds as well.
The owner is fabulous to work with- very attentive to our questions and concerns. Our little girl left her stuffed animal and she even shipped him back!!!
Highly recommend this property and owner- you will not be disappointed!!!!"

"We've come to Empire for several years escaping the heat of southern Indiana. This is a great house and meets all our needs. It's modern and in a nice quiet neighborhood. In the past we've stayed in different houses but this one is by far the best. It's a pleasant little walk to downtown and the beach. There are nice hiking trails close by. The owner is a very nice person to know. Book early... this house goes fast."

"Stayed here for a weekend, for a wedding we were attending in Bay Harbor. Not only was the place roomy enough for our group - 5 people- but it was only a 10-15 min drive to Bay Harbor. Place was immaculate, clean, up-to-date, and really cozy. During the day we sat outside on the back deck, and enjoyed the water (which was no more then 20 feet from the deck). As I said, we attended a wedding in Bay Harbor, but also enjoyed the short trip into Petoskey. Everything was local and convenient. I highly recommend this place!"

"The cottage was very well equipped for our stay. We really appreciate a washer and dryer while on vacation. It was also clean and cute! The owners were responsive and nice to work with. We loved the walking/bike trail close to the cottage and walked it every day. In addition the cottage had a great location. We were easily able to go to Harbor Springs and Petoskey (the best fudge in Michigan can be found at Howse's Fudge in Harbor Springs). We also made an easy trip to Wilderness State Park in northwest corner of the lower peninsula. It was beautiful and a perfect place to hike and swim."
