About Richard

I have been an active outdoors person all my life. I enjoy gardening, hikes, animal watching and many more outdoor activities.

Richard purchased this house in 2007

Why Richard chose Northwest

This property is one of the best in the area with many outdoor activities. Close to Traverse City and many tourist hot spots it can't be beat!

What makes this house unique

I purchased this vacant property in 2005 and camped on it for 2 years on and off to get a feel for the land before I built on it. I believe the location of the home and its surrounding land makes it a great vacation spot for all.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

To start with, this is a Pure Michigan piece of heaven. We have rented from Richard before and everything he has to offer is first class in terms of condition, location, and service. My wifes family came up to visit from Florida having never seen Northern Michigan, there were 8 of us total... 4 adults 4 kids...there is plenty of room with bunks and comfortable beds with tons of room in the bedrooms. Plenty of storage for suitcases and clothing... Bathrooms were spotless and updated with an INCREDIBLE steam shower in the master.. walk right out the back to a gorgeous setting in a hot tub... the kitchen is stocked with utensils, pans, coffee maker and all updated stainless appliances... all immaculate and clean. Plenty of counter / bar seating for 6 with a HUGE tree chunk table to sit 6 more. Its situated right on the river with an outstanding fire pit and seating for 12 on the waters edge... watch the sun go down listening to the flowing river... Richard supplied kayaks and tubes of which we all used to float down the river right back to our house ... it couldn't be more fun or convenient !! There is also a Ping Pong Table in the game room... There is a meandering creek that you can hike up to find rocks and artifacts as well.... This is just far enough from Traverse City to keep you out of the busy area, but close enough to grocery and all local attractions, that a "run to town" is quick. Its a perfect location to hit the dunes, wineries, fishtown, suttons bay, etc ! Richard is a perfect host and supplies you with everything you need to have a GREAT vacation. This is a "must book" on my list as we will return to this and Richards other properties again ! Thanks Richard for always taking care of us and giving us a Pure Michigan 1st class getaway !!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Neat. Clean. Well stocked. We enjoyed fishing off the bridge and laying in the hammocks. Richard was great - met us at the property when we arrived and was very responsive to a minor issue that we had and he helped us resolve. Make sure to take advantage of the hot tub and the ping pong table. Will definitely stay again if we visit again.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Spent a weekend in May. The house was clean, comfortable, and felt way larger than the pictures. Yard and hot tub were excellent. Very quiet, private, and felt like home.

I think the only negative from our stay is that 1 of our 3 cars got lost in the driveway. The house is about 1/4 of a mile off the road in a fairly wooded area, which was excellent, but the driveway had a split and 1 of the 3 vehicles took the wrong one.

Beautiful, serene, comfortable, relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with two other couples for Bayshore Marathon weekend 2017. The place was immaculately clean, comfortable, and the perfect place for us. After the race, those of us who ran were able to use the Boardman River for some cold therapy on our tired legs. And, of course the steam shower and hot tub were great as well. All in all, Richard took good care of us, and we hope to return again in the future!

Perfect hub for your outdoor recreation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time our group has rented this house. The setting is fantastic for relaxation and a gateway to the outdoors we've rented Richard's house as our up north base to race mountain bikes. What a perfect place to come back to; ice bath in the river, hottub for the aching muscles and the steam shower! What more could you ask for?

Richard is a wonderful host and this home is kept immaculately! Thanks again Richard, see you next time!

Absolutely a beautiful home and setting

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most beautiful homes and views I've ever experienced! Great location, close to downtown, fantastic fishing, and the kayak trips were amazing! We saw so much wild life and the wonders of nature! I would recommend this home to honeymooners, couples, families, really any group of people! Plenty of space with everything you need for an extended stay! We will definitely be back!!!!

Located on the beautiful Boardman River just min. away from historic downtown Traverse City. Many wonderful restaurants, wineries, golf courses, and shops just to name a few of the many things available to do and see in the area. Great boating and fishing, hiking and kayaking. We have the Cherry Festival in July, Horse show in July, Movie Festival after that and many, many events thru-out the spring, summer, and fall. And don't forget about the fall colors. There is no better place to see them than on the River! There is plenty of wildlife in the area, lots to do and see right in this beautiful home's backyard! Enjoy a bonfire by the river and watch the night sky for northern lights and satelites!
