  • Wonderful stay at Green Woods!!

    "We recently stayed at Green Woods (party of 7 - two families) and had a great experience! The house is very comfortable - very clean, very organized, and had everything we needed. The beds were also very comfortable, which is key to enjoying a stay anywhere. The house is air conditioned with dual controls (separate temperature controls for downstairs and upstairs), which turned out to be a huge plus one of the days of our stay as it was hot and humid. We were able to cool off the upstairs to a good sleeping temperature and everyone was very happy. We cooked all our meals at the house except for one lunch and one dinner; they even had a nice charcoal grill that we used a few nights for dinner. We went shopping for local produce at the Farmer's Market in Empire on Saturday morning and made grilled corn on the cob - yum! This is the second year we've spent a week in Empire and we really love the area - the public beach park in town has a terrific playground for kids of all ages (ours were 5 to 15) and it's easy driving to Sleeping Bear, Glen Arbor, Frankfort, and Traverse City (all the places we visited this trip). Renting a place like Green Woods is the best way to enjoy a family vacation at your own pace without breaking the bank. We will likely be back for future stays!!"

  • Another great stay in Empire!

    "We love this cottage! It is the 4th or 5th year that we have rented and it's always a wonderful vacation. We were surprised that the lake level had risen so much this year! Took away some of the beach, but was still wonderful. Already looking forward to next year."

  • Great Rental!!

    "This is a great rental property! There is a master bedroom on the main floor with master bath, family room, dinning room table and a full kicthen with anything you need for cooking or bbqing. There is a television, which we were not sure about until arrival. We do not go on vacation to watch tv, but it is nice to have on rainy days if you have children. Upstairs, there are 2 more bedrooms, 1 has a queen bed and the other has 2 twins. There is another full bathroom up there as well. There is also a half bath on the main floor and basement with washer and dryer. Bath towels and bed linens are provided, which I love because that means I don't have to pack all that bulky stuff along with everything else in my car. You will need to bring beach towels...which is to be expected. We stayed here with another family and there was plenty of room. The house is VERY clean and well cared for and is in a great location. It is just down the street from Empire Beach and the Empire Bluff Trail. 10 minutes (or less) from Sleeping Bear Dunes, 10 minutes to Glen Arbor and 10-15 minutes to Platte River. About 40 minutes to Leland and 30 minutes to Traverse City...very central to all of those things. Dealing with the owner was pleasant and easy. I would stay here again! Loved it here! Sincerely, Elyse C."

  • Great headquarters for a Sleeping Bear Adventure

    "We rented this cottage for our kayaking/hiking trip through the Sleeping Bear Dunes and area rivers. The cottage was warm and cozy with all of the modern amenities that truly made us feel at home. The cottage is charming and filled with the artwork of the owners. We really enjoyed our stay."
