A return trip to the beach house after a few years and so glad we made the decision to stay again! Wonderful, clean accommodations, with a breathtaking view. Proximity to nearby wineries and golf courses a plus. Thanks again for all of your help in the booking process. We hope to stay again and would highly recommend this house!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to let you know that we absolutely loved the lake house and location. Morning coffee by the water was perfect and the beautiful sunsets were gorgeous. The weather was wonderful and the house was stocked with all of the things that a vacationer could possibly need. Again, thank you for allowing us to bring "Max" (he thoroughly enjoyed the ride to and from Michigan). We will definitely do this again.

Great home beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been better. This home was perfect for the 10 of us. For 2 days we had 16 and it was great. The beach was were we spent most of our time. The owner could not have been nicer and was very easy to work with. The sunsets were just amazing. I would recommend this vacation home highly. Very clean.

Beautiful Home and View, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The home here is beautiful, at a great location and with perfect layout for a larger group. We had a great vacation up north and Paul's (the manager) responsiveness and friendliness made it even more enjoyable. The home is very clean and spacious. It's close enough to Traverse City to be convenient, but far enough from the noise and crowd to be peaceful. The grocery store and a K-Mart are just a few minutes away. The beach is outstanding. Great campfires! I highly recommend staying here.
