"This was our second vacation where all of our immediate family was able to attend (17 of us). What a great week we had, the home is exactly as advertised. Beautiful setting on the water, private, comfortable, relaxing, very clean and well furnished with all the amenities a large group needs. There were many places visited during our stay, including, Charlevoix, Traverse City, Elk Rapids, Mission Peninsula wine tour, Golf Courses etc. There was something to do or see for everyone. We had a perfect week including great weather, ending our summer vacation before the older grandchildren set off for college and the younger ones off to middle school. The entire family felt it was the best vacation they ever had and are looking forward to a repeat performance in the future (perhaps 2017). Paddle boards and kayaks were in use almost every day. Each family was able to prepare great evening meals with everyone sharing in the work. Job stress was certainly relieved as the working adults relaxed more and more each day. Enjoyed Pearls restaurant in Elk Rapids and the Jolly Pumpkin on the Mission Peninsula. Stores were near by to purchase anything we needed. Again, this certainly was a great family vacation and we can't wait to repeat the experience in the future. Thanks to Denise Donaldson for sharing her lovely home. Joe & Libby P & Family"

"We took 4 kids and 5 adults to stay for a long weekend. Originally, when I was looking for a rental, this one was not available the day we needed to check in. He went above and beyond to accommodate us so we could check in late. The owner answered all of our questions and even called us immediately when we had several questions a week before check in.
The layout was great. So comfortable for everyone. There are more beds than shown in the photos, which was a nice surprise. Deer Lake is so close and so nice that with young kids, it was perfect and the amenities are like no other. The house has WI-FI, a fire pit, a nice porch, seperate levels for privacy and plenty of room for everyone. We will definitely be back.
The proximity to Petosky was less than 20 minutes, an hour to Traverse City. It was a nice location if you want to see more in Northern Michigan. We truly appreciated the home, the owners and the location!!!! THANK YOU!!"
