Beautifully renovated home!

  • 5 of 5

Several colleagues and I rented both sides of this duplex for a friends' destination wedding in Northport. We instantly felt right at home here -- very easy to find, comfortable, home-y. The space was much larger than we anticipated (several of us traveled from NYC and London), and very close (walking distance) to the shops and restaurants throughout Northport. The special touches -- garden sculptures, modern lighting design, fresh local cheese in the fridge upon arrival -- make this place a great home-away-from-home. We also appreciated how accessible and friendly our landlords were in advance of the trip as well as while we were in Michigan.

House Rental for Willowbrook Mill Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to have been guided to this newly restored duplex for our son's wedding at the Willowbrook Mill. The parents of the bride rented the other side which was so convenient for the weekend events and planning. We were truly amazed at the details in the decorating which made this so much more like a well-appointed vintage home than a rental. The home, the landscaping, the porch and backyard all exceeded our expectations. We look forward to future vacations in this charming town of Northport.

We had a wonderful week in Blue Moon West. The newly restored house was comfortable and charming. The pictures don't do it justice. The many antiques and artful touches in every room were delightful. We had everything we needed and more. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable, and the backyard patio was relaxing and peaceful. The location was perfect for us as we enjoyed hopping on our bikes for rides on wide open roads, easy walks to Barb's bakery, Tom's grocery store and the marina and park for Friday night music. Our teenage kids discovered a local skatepark, and spent hours perfecting their Ollies. There is much to do within a short drive as well. We drove to Glen Arbor one afternoon for a glorious kayak outing down the Crystal River, drove just seven miles to Sutton's Bay to hop on the TART bike trail, and spent an afternoon shopping in Traverse City and then took in a movie at the historic State Theater. We can't wait to return!
