Great place will visit again

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay just kick up your feet and enjoy the view. What I appreciated the most was it was exactly as described and very clean. Close to the shopping district for Traverse City and visiting the wineries. If your looking for a great restaurant give Trattoria Stella, 1200 W 11th St., Traverse City, MI 49684-3287 - (231) 929-8989 a visit. We got to talking to someone in town and they recommended the place and we will definitely visit next time were in town. I would suggest calling for reservations on the weekend.

Sisters Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really appreciated the owner and his family's hospitality. You made us feel at home.

The suite was beautiful, clean, and well maintained. The picture window view of the lake was very soothing. The water's edge was nice and sandy and would be a great play area for children. The fire pit was a great touch to end a wonderful day of activities. There are numerous stairs down to the beach from the suite, but if you take your time and enjoy the views, it really doesn't matter.

The owner's tried to think of every need you may have while on vacation, including the perfect size of cooler for a day trip.

The location of the suite was great. We were approximately 10 minutes from the west end of Traverse Bay and about 35 minutes from the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Great beaches, wine tasting, and quaint towns are also close.

I would recommend this rental to my family and friends.

Thanks for a memorable sister weekend.
