"This was just right for our Labor Day family getaway "Up North" with six adults and two children ages 3 and 4. The house was spacious enough that we never felt like we were on top of each other, and I think that has a lot to do with the remodeling that the owner must have recently done -- I loved the separate dining space off the entrance, and the upper level is just stunning. There was a desk for those who needed to get some work done (unfortunately!). Our little ones loved the small bedroom off the upstairs, and the adjacent den was a great spot for them to watch movies and play yet still be close enough that the adults could hear all was well. The lake is "across the street," but we're talking about 15 steps and you're there. The kitchen is VERY well-equipped -- plenty of dishes and glasses for everyone without having to run the dishwasher constantly. The old stove worked SO great! One burner seemed a little less hot but hey, that's part of the charm. Everything was in working order, and the house is even nicer than the photos make it seem. The porch swing, or "swing chair" as my 3 year old called it, was a HUGE hit with the kids and adults. And the small fire pit/ring in the front yard was JUST perfect for s'mores after dinner. Like others have said in reviews, the location is grand as well -- away from the high prices of Traverse City but close enough that you can go to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor, Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas, etc., and not feel like you've been in the car the whole trip. There are two large, well-stocked grocery stores only a couple miles away, which made making meals at home convenient and easy. The only *slight* negative was the size of the bedrooms on the lower level, especially the one that uses the bathroom in the hallway, but after one night, we felt like it was just part of the cozy charm. We would stay again in a heartbeat."

Our Whole Family Enjoyed Our Getaway by Green Lake
"This log cabin is a lovely spot for a family getaway. My kids enjoyed the games and books on site and my teenaged daughter loved having a private bedroom. The furnishings are comfortable and clean and we had fun grilling on the deck, walking by the lake, and trekking to Sleeping Bear Dunes and downtown Traverse City. Even off season, there is plenty to do with this cabin as a home base."

"My wife and I stayed here last year. I had submitted a review at that time but that got lost during my submission. We were happy with the accommodations. The deck over the boathouse was our favorite place to spend time on the property. We ate some meals there, enjoyed a few happy hours" after active days. The lake is mostly quiet and is a lovely spot to just relax. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. I would love to stay here again and would recommend this cottage and the surrounding area. There is plenty to do in this beautiful area of Michigan. We had kayaks and bicycles and had plenty of opportunities to use them often. The owner was helpful and easy to deal with. Her Father amicably stopped by briefly once and was very helpful with information. This is a comfortable place to be and stay in all respects."

"We relaxed and enjoyed this lovely home on Duck Lake. The owner was attentive and quick to respond with answers. We loved the home design and all the details incorporated in build. The week was fun as we explored the lake, Traverse City, Leland, Suttons Bay, etc. We always looked forward to returning to the cabin and enjoying all the bird sightings, quietness, coziness, and home-cooked meals. Thank you."
