Recent Traverse City reviews

  • Fantastic! HIGHLY recommend this nature haven.

    "Booking was very easy through VRBO and paypal. Tim was very quick to respond. The driving directions provided by Tim were fantastic….use those. It was fun to drive through the long, winding, tree lined road to the house. I couldn't get the door open….my husband had to do it each time :) The house was spotless. There were some supplies left for us~ pump soap, toilet paper, paper towels, bar soap. We slept in the 2 bigger beds. We used the daybeds to lay on during the day. We only used the shower/bath during the week. The water pressure was good and stayed hot for 3 quick showers in a row…the 4th was iffy. :) We didn't cook while there….but the fridge and microwave worked well. We never turned the tv on. The internet connection worked at all times, except during a thunderstorm. We used the washer a few times during the week ….had to wash the towels we brought from home and some random clothes. it worked well. We used the dryer a little bit more due to drying our wet swimming stuff. We swam off the pier on a few occasions and did end up with the lake itch that Tim informs you about. The kids were 100% w/o any red bumps within 6 hours of getting out of the water. They were just super itchy for those hours. We always got out of the water and washed off in the tub with soap. If they were super itchy, we used benadryl cream. My husband got it the worst and is at home with at least 10 bumps on his legs still. The water was super clean. Only saw fish at night and they were tiny. The windows are temperamental at moments. I learned which ones would fall off of their track when winding back in. I had hubby help push those closed from outside daily. Only a few windows have window treatments. It took me a minute to get used to it at night. The fire pit and patio were perfect at night. We never used the heat or indoor fireplace. We HIGHLY recommend staying here and hope to stay here again in the future. The house was perfect for us. I know your family will love it as much as we did. Family of 5. 3-39 years old 2 dogs. puppy and old guy"

  • November Rain

    "Great location with proximity to our interests in TC area. Beautiful view of lake from Living Area. Great dining area for our large family. We weren't able to enjoy the outdoors much because of the weather, but could imagine it being great. My children enjoyed the air hockey table."

  • Amazing location, clean and friendly!

    "This is a truly amazing property with a beautiful view of the East Bay. This property has an extremely competitive nightly rate for the view and location. You simply can't find anything even this good in the same price point. The property was exceptionally clean, and fully stocked with linens and kitchen utensils. Even my quirky coffee needs were satisfied by a french press at the location! The owner, Lisa, was extremely friendly and helpful leading up to our trip. She has done an excellent job decorating this house, it's minimalistic but well updated and very inviting. I cannot say enough nice things about the backyard, and by that I mean the beach! At any moment you're a few steps off the back porch to clean sand and water. Our kids enjoyed the water and playing in the sand almost every day we were in Traverse City. I enjoyed reading on the back porch in the morning and in the afternoon dug my feet into the sand to watch the kids play. One of the really nice things about East Bay is that the water activity is relatively low compared to West Bay. The location to the rest of Traverse City is ideal in my opinion. You are only ever a brief drive from downtown, and you're at the far West edge of the current construction on 31 so if you're smart about using the center lane you don't have to mess with that at all. The property is close to the road and while you can hear road traffic we never found it to be a problem at all. During our visit the cherry blossoms were in bloom, a true treat when visiting Traverse City. This property is relatively close to Mission Peninsula and if you're visiting I highly recommend taking a drive up 37 to the lighthouse. These sort of day trips were super easy, even with our three kids, thanks to the great location of this property. If you can find a free spot on the calendar, go visit this property! Our family hopes to visit again as we had such a wonderful time on this trip!"
