                                                              Exceptional experience

                                                              David N.

                                                              I rented this property for 6 months. Dennis was superb. He was extremely responsive to all my needs and to all problems with the property (which were minor) - and when I say extremely, I mean texts returned usually within minutes, necessary service calls scheduled within an hour or two of reporting the problem, and regular and timely followup on issues. If I were renting short term, this is just the type of owner I'd want to interact with...no "thanks and see you later," but someone who really wants his renters to have a good experience and be comfortable.

                                                              1st Time Vacationing in Michigan

                                                              Nancy B.North Bend, OH

                                                              My husband, 2 college aged kids and myself stayed here for 4 nights in June. The house was nice and spacious and we couldn't have asked for a better location, right on the lake and close to downtown Traverse City. We enjoyed the campfire, kayaks and went golfing, shopping and just relaxing, having some good quality family time, which is rare for us these days. Dennis couldn't have been nicer and easier to work with. He returned all my calls and emails very promptly and helped me with all my questions. When we couldn't get the wifi to work we called him and he dropped what he was doing and came over to try to fix it, as he knew it was essential for my husband to have wifi for his work. He was unable to fix it himself, but called the cable company and after quite a few lengthy conversations with a few people the problem was solved. He gave up his Sunday dinner with his family to help us and we greatly appreciated it!

                                                              Wonderful Labor Day Weekend

                                                              My family spent 4 nights here over the long weekend. We couldn't have enjoyed it more. The house was just the right size for my wife and I and two small kids (ages 3 1/2 and 2). Best of all was that the beach area was not too deep. This was perfect for the kids as they were able to run around and play without having the water be over their heads. There was also a ton of toys on the beach ready for the kids to play with. The kayaks, canoe, and paddle boat were a nice touch as well. We would definitely rent here again. Only 5 minutes from downtown TC which was a huge plus also.

                                                              Great Time!!

                                                              We had a great time at the lake house. There was more than enough room for the 3 adults and 3 kids we had. The beach and dock were perfect for the young kids and the paddle boat, kayaks, and canoe were an awesome added feature. The location was great, just a short drive into town. We can't wait to return. Thanks Dennis!

                                                              Great time on Silver Lake

                                                              We loved our stay on silver lake! The lake was clean and very, very quiet. My kids (ages 7-13) had a blast kayaking, canoeing, paddle boating, swimming, playing in the sand, roasting marshmallows and FISHING right off the dock. They went tubing off of a jet ski one day. You can do this off some pontoon boats as well. Lake Michigan was great, traverse has tons of restaurants, and minutes to the grocery was nice.

                                                              We loved our stay!

                                                              We loved our stay! Dennis was absolutely wonderful to us! The house was clean and well prepared for item we may have needed for our stay. The kids had a blast with the shallow beach and the sand. We would definitely would ask to stay at his rental again!
