Relaxing location for a get away!
This spacious cottage has a fireplace, full kitchen and plenty of bed/bathrooms for several guests. We had a warm fire in the fireplace every night which is wonderful in the winter. Utensils, Wi-Fi, linens and everything else needed for a comfortable stay was supplied by the owner, Pat. The Apple TV is a nice feature for nights when we just wanted to stay in and watch a documentary.
The location was great too as we were only a few minutes drive from several Little Traverse Nature Conservancy sites. We were able to enjoy snowshoeing and cross-country skiing at the Goodhart-Farms Preserve just up Robinson Rd. The Petoskey Brewery is less than 30 minutes away where we had some interesting beers and cheesy fries!
A very relaxing place to stay and I definitely plan to visit again!
Thank you! The Little Traverse Conservancy properties are a great resource. So nice that you enjoyed them! The brewery has good cheesy fries for a post ski!
Beautiful View with Amenities
Overall it was a great place to stay with many amenities. For an up north cottage, it checked all of the boxes for comfort. The Fireplace was quite the bonus as we absolutely loved being warmed when we woke and when we returned from the ski hills.
Bedrooms were comfortable and ample bathrooms for our group of 8. Full kitchen was nice as we cooked in mostly. While it was quite cold and windy, the view was worth venturing outside to take in. Wonderful overlook over Lake Michigan. I imagine this place would be amazing to stay in the summer.
Pat was very good at contacting us prior to our arrival and had comprehensive instructions for our stay, which was appreciated.
The only negative I would have is the distance from town. It was stated in the description that we would only be 10 minutes form the Ski Resorts. When we pulled up the directions to Nubs on our phones from the driveway, it gave 24 minutes, 3 different routes (we tried them all). Add in the winding roads and lack of salt on the roads (they use sand up there) that quickly took us into the 40+ minute range of quite stressful driving. Forgot my boots the first day and just rented boots as I would rather spend the money versus wasting an hour and a half driving.
Thank you for your kind words, Randall. We are sorry about the roads. We double checked our VRBO site. Our site does state that the ski hills are about 20 minutes away. It also says that Harbor Springs is about 12 miles away. We hope that these two destinations were not transposed. Yes, the roads are hilly and winding; it is part of the areas beauty. We are glad there was snow for some good skiing. We hope you had some good family time and made some good memories.
Great owners, beautiful location
It was a slow start because of storms and power outage however, Patricia (owner) was very easy to get ahold of and quick to respond with necessary information. The property is great and won't hesitate to book again.
We are so sorry about the power outage and glad Great Lakes Energy worked hard and quickly to restore power to the region. We are glad we could assist with your logistics and that the trip turned out as well as can be expected. We look forward to hearing from you again.
Comfortable and relaxing
We had a nice time as we always do at this property. Two weeks every summer for 20+ years.
We enjoy having you!
Been coming here for close to twenty years. Always enjoy!
Awe. We appreciate your annual business! Thank you for your fabulous review.
We loved our time spent here! It was the perfect location from the backyard peacefulness with a view of Lake Michigan, to the layout of the house, to the proximity to the best beaches and general store around! We hope to come back!
We appreciate your support! We hope the views will be even better after trimming this fall. As part of saving our beautiful Oaks, we can only trim in the cooler months now.
