"My husband and I just returned home from our vacation today, and we very much enjoyed this house. I am very fussy when it comes to walking into a clean house and this house was just that. You could smell the cleanliness. They even added a vase of freshly picked flowers to welcome us. The natural light from all the windows was fabulous, and we even watched a raccoon enjoying the sweet cherries on several different occasions from the living room. The living room also had very comfortable furniture, which was a big bonus. We were sad to leave the area, where this house was in a nice location to travel to Sutton's Bay to enjoy the small shops, Traverse City to shop and enjoy Tandem Ciders, and Cedar to eat at the Sol Taco Stand. The owners were readily available when we noticed that cable cords were missing from the DVD player and brought us a set almost immediately. They were VERY easy to work with and that is also a great bonus.
The only reason we didn't give this an excellent review, wished there was a VERY GOOD button, was because the house was on the corner of M22 and another pretty well traveled road. The traffic was almost a constant. When the traffic wasn't there, the birds were chirping and it was a total relaxation moment.
We would not hesitate to come back, even knowing the noise of the cars. The house had lots of character and it was neat to hear that the owner grew up in the house."

"My family and I have vacationed in Northern Michigan for nearly 40 years - searching for that perfect home and perfect beach/waterfront property. The Fox House is that. Not only is the home updated, spacious and filled to the gills with every amenity possible, the outdoor experience cannot be beat. You are on the leeward side of Lake Michigan meaning that the beach is gorgeous, the water is calm and you can safely swim out for what feels like miles. Northport - and its surrounding communities - continues to grow and offers great biking, running, water sports, and restaurants. This is our fourth year at the Fox House and we will be back next year."

"We found this perfect vacation home & fell in LOVE!!! The house is immaculate, comes with everything you would ever need. The location is gorgeous, great beach, beautiful sunsets......There are not many things as peaceful as going to bed with the sound of the waves lapping the shore. The house is comfortable & welcoming. Jeff & Carrie were also very attentive to our needs.
Close to lots of fun towns, Northport, Leland, Sutton's Bay, Glen Arbor, Sleeping Bear Dunes, etc. Northport is a great little town a short drive from the house, nice town park with sand volleyball court, marina, playground & Farmers Market. Be sure to try the cinnamon rolls at Barb's Bakery!!!
Would love to make this a vacation tradition for our family."

"We stated in early June and the weather was perfect. Beautiful views of lake Michigan! The house is well equipped and fit our family perfectly. The wood fired hot tub is the perfect end to the day with views of the lake. You feel all alone up north at this home. The sand dunes down the street are the perfect size for our kids to explore. The beach and cove are the perfect hiding place. We kayaked to the lighthouse and the tip of the peninsula, walked the beach, played on the dunes, and watched the sun set. Perfect place for our family vacation. We will be back."
