Family Xmas

  • 5 of 5

Large enough to comfort family at xmas. Need good tires for slight incline to property if theres snow, but well worth the effort. The home is beautiful and well accomodated with kitchen needs. I would love to stay in the summertime for a different view. There was a piano there at the time, which was perfect for xmas songs. loved it!!! Thank you for letting us enjoy your home and for smooth transactions, and concern for our comfort.

rental home

  • 4 of 5

beautiful home, the house is nice and secluded, the kitchen is amazing, basement was great for late night gatherings and for the dogs! location is good, close to traverse city though dont plan on using the beach, you will need to go to town for a beach for swimming and playing. the volleyball court at the house works well as a sand box but it is on a 'cliff' so it would be nearly impossible to play volleyball:)

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 14 people. The house was well maintained and had enough bathrooms and bedrooms for everyone. Backyard was great with a fire pit and large sand area. It is a little far from shopping areas, but worth the drive.

Great Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful big house.

One week with 17 family members (mom and dad, 4 grown kids with their own families including 7 kids under 8 years old) . Each family unit had seperate sleeping arrangements plus a full bath per family. The volleyball area was a great sandbox for our group. We enjoyed the fire pit.
