"My husband and I, together with our son, daughter in law and their almost two year old twins just returned from a near perfect vacation at Lake Charlevoix. (The only thing that was imperfect was a few days of weather.) The home is more beautifull and spacious than depicted in the photos. The open floor plan was comfortable and worked perfectly for us. The house and yard (including deck) were clean and well-maintained. We (and the kids) were delighted with the assortment of sand toys and the swing/slide set. The kitchen was very well-stocked with utensils, cooking tools, etc. The grill and hot tub were an added plus. (Our only "complaint" is that there could have been more towels--both bath and beach. To make matters worse, we left 3 towels on the boat we rented right before we left. I suspect that we may not the only ones to contribute to a towel shortage, of which the owners may not have been aware. We reported our "loss" to them.) The location was ideal--only a few minutes from downtown Charlevoix and a reasonable drive (maybe 20 minutes) from Petoskey. Highly recommend the house and the owners, who made the whole transaction simple and pleasant."

"We just spent 3 nights here for an annual guys golf weekend and could not have been happier with the accomodations. The owner was incredibly easy to work with and this place had everything we needed for a clean comfortable stay. All we brought was clothes, clubs and food. Our group is large and this place slept us all in separate beds which is extremely hard to find. We make a trip like this every year and this is hands down the best place we have stayed. We will definitely be back and with the amount of top notch courses in the area you can't run out of options. This is a golfers dream!"

"My family of four (kids 7 and 9) had a wonderful time at the Bass Lake Lodge. We have vacationed in Traverse City many times but the first time on Bass Lake. The location is great! We found the cottage exceptionally clean and comfortable and stocked with everything you would need to feel at home, and then some! My son (9) caught 7 fish in the lake. The lake was very quiet. Not really a sandy bottom for swimming but throw some water shoes on and the kids did okay. Great value for what you get!! We hope to return some day."

"Creekside was everything we were looking for and more! It is quiet and secluded, close to Lake MI, and a short drive from Traverse City with many other small towns nearby.
There is a convenience store right around the corner where you can also sit down and eat as well. Leland is very close and has a nice little diner called early bird. It opened for the season the week we were there. There is a nice place behind it called the Blue Bird Tavern which we also enjoyed for dinner. Downtown Traverse City has so many shops and everyone should enjoy several hours there. Even the guys!
The guesthouse is located in the woods on a beautiful little creek and it is just very peaceful and relaxing in every way. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals if you like, there is a washer and dryer if you need to do laundry and everything is very clean and homey. We plan to go back in the future and have already been telling our friends.
If you love Lake MI, small quaint towns, good shopping, hiking, boating, skiing, secluded vacation homes, etc... This place is for you."
