  • Peaceful and beautiful get-away!

    "We so enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It is so quiet and peaceful. Our kids really enjoyed fishing and swimming. The boats are a very nice amenity. We used the rowboat most, but also the canoe. We appreciated having access to them at any time-- as well as the golf cart! We had almost every meal on the deck being able to relax and look out at the beautiful lake. The only meal we didn't, we took down to the picnic table right at the lake...and topped it off with s'mores in the fire pit! It was nice having Paul check in with us and make sure everything was going well. And of course, it was fun having Charlie, Roxie (and Dixie, but not nearly as much!) check in with us, too! All in all, we had a great extended weekend at the Cottage! We didn't feel any need or desire to leave! Thank you! We hope to visit again! And we may need to see about a winter sledding visit!...."

  • Family Reunion

    "We rented the property for our family reunion. The condo was perfect for the 7 of us. The location to Empire Beach was great. With South Bar Lake as a backdrop, the morning view from the deck was superb. It was a short drive to Glen Arbor and Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. Hope to stay there again."

  • Great location and house for small family of four

    "This was our first time to the area and really didn't know what to expect. You should have seen the list of different properties I considered for our family. Ultimately, this location seemed the most appropriate for the price. We LOVED the house, loved the location, he dock and swimming in the lake right out the front door was amazing. We also rode our bikes to the Lake Michigan beach just 5 miles away. Not the fault of the owners, but the weather was unseasonably cold. We longed for some heavier blankets. We made due. We did have a small incident with an uncooperative smoke alarm that kept going off in the middle of the night. But we figured it out the next day with the handle of the broom. One other comment would be that we couldn't find a dust pan anywhere which made it tough to keep he floors (which are beautiful) well swept. There was a rowboat/canoe on the premises, but it wasn't clear if that was available for our use. We hope to return next year. Thanks for sharing your lovely home!!!!"

  • Great home right on the water with beautiful sunsets!

    "My husband, our baby and I just returned from this home and had a wonderful week. The house is just feet from the bay and there's plenty of private beach to relax or play. The best part of the home is the huge windows overlooking the water - from the kitchen and bedrooms. Delightful to look at! This house is located in Elk Rapids which is a charming one-stoplight town with a great public beach and playground for kids, but also close enough to pop into Traverse City for shopping or dinner. The photos are accurate as every night we enjoyed a beautiful sunset. The homeowner was extremely hospitable and very easy to work with. I'd say it actually sleeps 8 instead of 6. This was our first time using VRBO and we were very pleased!"
