Great house at a very fair price! Large and clean, had everything we needed. Owner responsive and easy to work with. Close to the lake and to Interlochen camp and town. Would definitely rent again.

Interlochen Flute Choir Attendees

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I attended the Flute Choir week at Interlochen and stayed at the Ranch again this year. We are always made to feel welcome. There were some problems that popped up that were unavoidable. They were taken care of immediately and no incovenience to us. Thanks Linda for another enjoyable stay! The house is a very enjoyable bike ride to Interlochen, and everything was supplied for us.

Interlochen Attendee

  • 4 of 5

My two friends and I attended the Flute Choir at Interlochen School for the Arts. We rented the house as it was close to the school. The owner was warm and gave us real good details about the house. The house was comfortable and there is everything you need for a great stay. We were very comfortable! The only reason I rated the house good instead of excellent was a problem that developed at the last minute. Rather than disrupt our stay, a quick fix was put in place until we left, but the owner informed us of this and gave us the choice. We won't hesitate to stay there again!

Wonderful Place to Stay in Interlochen

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to rent. The owners were very nice and great about recommending things in the area. We came up for the weekend of Sept. 16,2011 and had a wonderful time. From the outside the house looks small, but is quite large on the inside. The house is furnished beautifully,the beds were comfortable and the atmosphere was very inviting. Everything was very clean. It was nice to have two tables to choose from, one very large that we could all fit around with board and card games. We used the fire pit on the patio and drank hot chocolate and sang songs around the fire under the beautiful starlit sky. The water pressure was a little low, but the water stayed hot and we had five people showering so you can't ask for more than that. It was nice to have a washer and dryer and all the appliances were clean and in good condition. I am recommending this to all my friends as an very reasonably priced rental in the Grand Traverse area and can't wait to come back myself.
