Great property with lots of space!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our family vacation. This home was perfect for six adults and a toddler and came with more amenities than I've typically seen at other rentals. Our goal was to relax outside and play in the water and the SUPs, paddle boat and fire pit definitely made that easy.

Wonderful, peaceful lake setting

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely a beautiful setting. Very quiet and peaceful. It's a true lake cottage, not for those looking for all the ultra-modern amenities of a five star hotel, but exactly what we wanted and expected. Comfortable for 6 adults and a child.

Kristen was great and very quick to answer any questions. This was our first trip to Traverse City and she was happy to make suggestions. Access to the provided paddle boards and paddle boats was great and Mickey Lake is perfect for first-timers to learn on, prior to venturing out to the larger Long Lake.

One caution: You have to navigate a number of steps - from the parking area to the cottage; from the cottage to the lake and even within the cottage. Not a problem for our group, but would be difficult for anyone with mobility issues.

All-in-all, a wonderful time, at a beautiful place.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed a week at this property and had a wonderful time. Plenty of room for eight of us, two adults and six kids (ages 10 to 18). This property has a lot to offer... fishing from the dock, the water trampoline, paddle boat, paddleboards, Wifi and more. Plenty to do locally too, a short drive to Downtown Traverse City, tubing on the Platt River and the dune climb at Sleeping Bear Dunes. The property owner is a pleasure to work with as well, and always responded quickly to any questions. A great family vacation spot!

Wonderful location with fun water sports and great water toys for kids !

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in mid July! It is a beautiful property at the edge of Mickey Lake right next to Long Lake. This house had everything we needed, from the water trampoline, to SUP's, a paddleboat, fire pit, and nice patio and Adirondack chairs on the dock. Long Lake grocery is close, with great pizza, and last minute pick up items. The house was a decent size, but definitely needs some updates. Location is great, close to Moomer's ice cream, which was fantastic!! About 15-25 minutes from everything else. We had a very nice stay!
