Great home and property

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the large home which was great along with the property. The owners were very accommodating. We used all the water equipment which was really nice to have. The only complaint was the amount of vegetation you had to swim over to get to the water trampoline, but it wasn't enough to stop us from playing. I would absolutely recommend this property and home.

Very accomodating!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed the stay at Brookside in the house and all the fun activities to do while there. It was the week of the Cherry Festival and that also added to the list of things to do; however, having the pool, game room, kayaks, trampoline and paddle boats was a huge hit for the kids and adults. I planned this stay so that my sister and her family (kids and grandkids) could enjoy vacation with my brother-in-law (husband/grandpa) as he is battling pancreatic cancer. Lots of photos were taken so that these memories will play a huge part in their future. Thanks Kurt for being such a great host! Hope to return!

Mother's Day Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I surprised my mother with a weekend away this year. What a beautiful setting for us all to honor her. This home is set up perfectly for privacy and a great open area for us all to be together. The home was spotless, well furnished, and although it was early spring, there was plenty for us all to do. Several of us went fishing a few times and the little ones played on the beach and playground. The game room provided pool, foosball and ping-pong. We had a bountiful cookout, courtesy of the gas grill and several campfires. It was everything we had hoped for and more. The owners were available the entire time and checked in to see we needed anything. They were extremely accommodating and hospitable. This home is very spacious and stocked with high-end towels, bedding, furniture, and is well appointed with fine appliances etc. We will definitely be back in the near future!

Why Kurt & Tammy Hubschneider chose Grawn

We fell in love with this property the first time we saw it. It is absolutely beautiful. With the 350 ft. of Duck Lake frontage and the 600 ft. of peaceful Mason Creek bordering the edge of the property, it is truly unique.

What makes this house unique

350 ft. of private frontage, water trampoline, raft, 2 docks, boats, swimming pool, basketball court, horseshoes, playground and recreation room. Just a great place for the entire family and to get away from it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We stayed in the big house for the first week of August, 2016. Our family of 7 adults and 2 kids fit pretty comfortably. The house definitely offered more than I expected (large washer/dryer, wifi, cable TV, DVD player and lots of kitchen utensils and pots and pans). We loved all the amenities on property as well. Kurt and Tammy are great owners- keeping the property well maintained and very responsive when and if issues arise. We spent a few days just on the property, but we loved going into Traverse City as well. Clinch Park was a favorite, and we loved picking blueberries and exploring on the Old Mission Peninsula. Thanks for a great vacation!”
