"We have found the perfect vacation home! Traveling Up North to Michigan has been a family tradition. It started with my dad spending the summers in Frankfort; he brought us kids each year and I have continued pace with my own family. We have stayed in various cottages/lakehouses, but this lodge is a dream come true! It is the perfect size for my growing family. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable each has its own personality. The kitchen is updated and has every amenity. We loved the private beach with the fire pit for bonfires! I loved that it was an easy distance from both Beulah and Frankfort. Mary has put so much of herself into this treasure; it definitely felt like a home away from home. My family and I hated to leave. We have already reserved it again for next year!! Thank you so much for sharing your home Mary! You made us feel so welcome :)"

"My husband and I just got back from another 2 weeks at Thayer (this was our 3rd year). Yes, 2 weeks. Our first year here, 10 days just wasn't enough...and honestly, 2 weeks isn't either. We are already thinking of coming back in the fall. This is our third year vacationing here. We love the quiet of the no wake lake, fishing is excellent (mostly bass and pan fish but almost guaranteed to catch a couple - even from the dock - every time you go out), close to things to do (this year we went zip lining in Boyne, last year Sleeping Bear Dunes), cute towns close by (Alden, Bellaire and Traverse City), there is also a Casino.... OR the best part is, you can just sit and gaze at the beauty of the lake, watch the wild life (the loons are really cool - we saw a bald eagle and osprey). If you really need some excitement Torch Lake is right next door.... The cabins are great - newly renovated - the screened in porch on the Oak is the best - brings back childhood memories of family vacations (when we went so distracted by tv, phones/texting and internet)... This is the place to unplug. Also note that the cabins have an natural climate control. They tend to stay cool in the heat and warm when cooler (though be sure to prepare for both extremes at any time of year - there is a small heater and fan but northern Michigan weather can be fickle... this year the coolest at night was about 44 - warmest in day about 80) and not to mention - Tim and Stephanie - they are great...Sum it up: The worse part about this entire experience - leaving."

"Great location close to town and the park. Communication with Nicky to set up the rental agreement and organize arrival/departure was excellent. The house is clean and functional. We look forward to renting again!"
