  • secluded and a great place to stay

    "This was a very nice place to stay. Had my brothers bachelor party here. Everyone enjoyed this place. It was away from everyone else which was really nice. Spacious living ecpesially the bunk house up the road. I think we had about 12 people come and there was a spot for everyone to sleep. There is plenty to do a rp ins the cottage or just a short drive for enterainment. I would recommend this place to anyone that wanted a quiet stay by a nice river. The hott tub was great for relaxing after a long night. If I was to go back up this way in Michigan I would try and stay here again very family friendly."

  • Perfect combination of location and comfort.

    "This is a great house/cabin; very comfortable, clean, private and yet close to downtown Traverse City as well as Leelanau County and Old Mission peninsula. There are unlimited wine tasting opportunities with one Vineyard just up the hill within walking distance. It overlooks West Grand Traverse Bay and had spectacular views even in December. The home itself is very interesting with various personal collections and it's easy to see an artist lived here. The owner was very accommodating and is a goldmine of information about the area. We have stayed here multiple times over the last few years and it's wonderful in every season. We keep coming back because it feels like home."

  • 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"

  • Romantic Get Away on Bass Lake

    "Cute cottage with all amenities and more. Cottage has nice sandy frontage, fire pit and sleeping up to six (bunk beds/pull out sofa/master). Has a nice big wrap around porch with great view of the lake. We made it up for fall color tour, it is only a 10 minute drive to downtown Traverse City and a short scenic drive to Empire. Being the fall didn't get to use the lake at all, but looks like kayak, boats, fishing, and pontoons all around, would be a great place for family with kids to spend time on the lake in the summer. Dan and Nancy were great and they have done a great job decorating the cottage. We will be back for sure."
