Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, quiet and close to the golf courses we were golfing at. Perfect. Joanna sent me an e-mail with all the info I needed, returned a call promptly and even left a six pack of "aiming fluid" for our group. Nice touch! Thinking of staying there again to golf Sand Valley.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time once again. Charming house located within the pines creates just the perfect weekend getaway. Having absolutely beautiful weather (70's in late October) just added to the weekend. Can't wait to come back next year.

Very comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and comfortable and we appreciated how well equipped the kitchen was. We spent time at Pettenwell and also checked out some other local lakes we're interested in. We've rented vacation homes many times but this was the first opportunity we've had to bring our dog along. It was great having him with us and he got to bark at a deer so he was thrilled.

Cute cabin in the woods with exceptional hospitality from the owners.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in this cute cabin with many special touches provided by the owners. The kitchen is well-stocked with all that you might need. There is a wonderful view of the woods out back with the occasional deer paying a visit.

Fisherman's Paradise!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Zander Pines Lodge! What a beautiful wooded setting. True up north feel. Decorated so nice. Everything was there for us to enjoy our stay.We cooked indoors and outdoors on the grill. Loved sitting outdoors and building a fire in the firepit. We had a great time sitting in the screened season room so comfy and the porch swing is a nice touch. Three deer walked through the yard one morning, and another a fox. The location was great for fishing and not far in any direction from many things to do. We would love to stay again and will recommend to others. Thankyou Joanna and Andy! :) Jerry and Kim.
