Secluded home large enough for the extended family - Clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Home is well maintained and clean. Plenty of sheets, blankets, pillows, towels for the whole crew. Pool was a huge hit as expected. Used the nice outdoor grill on patio for dinner a couple nights. Used the firepit area for smores. Kids never complained of boredom! Great family getaway. Would love to stay again in the future. Thank you Bruce and Pam for the easy and fun experience!

Amazing Estate

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 2 other couples for a long weekend. Pool was the highlight!!! The photos do not do it justice. The barn, driveway, entrance, property.....GORGEOUS. When we ordered pizza, we didn't even need the address, just said "The Walton Ranch" and they knew it right away. The house was super clean and comfortable! Even the beds were comfortable! Traverse City was super close even though it seems further on the map. Thinking we might bring our kids with us next time! Amazing trip! Totally recommend this amazing property!!

Wonderful house with the best location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! We had a large group, and Pam and Bruce were more than accommodating. We had a lot of kids, so the pool was a great way to entertain them. Not once did we hear, "we're bored" or "there's nothing to do". The home gave tons of privacy and had a large yard that we used to play cornhole and other outdoor activities. We stayed during the cherry festival and it was less than a 20 minute drive to the festival. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!!!

Fabulous Family Reunion in private home! [4.5 stars]

  • 4 of 5

Our family (6 adults and 6 kids, ages 68 to 3 years old) spent 3 nights in this spacious home - enjoying the fabulous pool, the backyard for outdoor games and lounging in the dining/family/TV rooms. House description and photos are accurate. Owners were responsive to minor issues we had with internet. Traverse City is 14 miles away - great for Lake Michigan beaches and other amenities of busy tourist town. Grocery store 10-15 minutes from house.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family( 12 in total ) recently stayed at this lovely home. The home is well maintained and comfortable. The property is lovely and the pool was a huge hit with everyone. The owners were pleasant and easy to work with. I would recommend this home to a family looking for a peaceful relaxing vacation. It is located within a short drive to Traverse City which has shopping, many restaurants and beautiful beaches.

Peaceful & relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation included Grandparents, 2 daughters & their husbands and 2 babies and brother & sister-inlaw. We enjoyed Sleeping Bear National Park and Traverse City. We were able to go kayaking, biking, hiking and shopping. The house was located in the country and it was very peaceful after a full day of activities. The house was spacious and the pool was a treat at the end of the day. It was a great family vacation!!
