Wonderful beach house
We enjoyed our stay! Easy entry into sandy bottom beach, great views from the house. Carole was very responsive!
Great place, great location
Our stay was excellent. This house had great viewed of the bay, we enjoyed the views while sitting on the wrap around deck. Great layout for entertaining, great location for golfing.
Loved our stay here, we spent a lot of time on the wrapped deck and beach down below- perfect for a campfire while watching the orionid meteor shower. Probably a 10-15 minute drive into the city, stone's throw from great golf courses we took advantage of. PLENTY of space to accommodate our group of 4. Carole was extremely easy to coordinate with throughout the entire process. We will be back- next time bringing the dogs!
Wonderful views great place!
We rented this home for the weekend for a birthday party/ spa getaway. It's very close to Grand Traverse Resort and was the perfect spot for us. The house was stocked... plenty of everything. We were all very happy. The views were great- we had a nice fire on the beach at night and couldn't have asked for a better place to go.
Carole was helpful and easy to communicate with. Everything went perfectly! Thank you Carole!!
Relaxing Vacation On Beach
This property was fantastic for my husband and I and our dog to relax with no worries. The house was great with plenty of room for 2 families but also peaceful for us to relax away from busy roads and noise. We enjoyed the views of the lake all day long and the sunsets were spectacular. The wrap around deck added to our outdoor pleasure when we did not want to walk the very short distance to our own beach area with chairs to sit and enjoy. The house was very clean and had everything we needed to feel at home all week. We were close to Traverse City to enjoy the shops and restaurants there as well as a short drive to some great wineries. We drove to Mission Point Lighthouse, which was well worth the drive and stopped at a winery for some tastings along the route. We ate at one of the golf courses close by and had a fantastic meal on their outdoor desk. This location is also close to one of the local casinos if that is an interest. We hope to be back and again enjoy this property on the lake and probably stay longer next time. The owner was very attentive to any questions or needs. Neighbors were nice but there is plenty of privacy so as not to worry about that while relaxing or playing on the beach or even cooking out on the grill, which we did. The area was so peaceful we were very happy with this property and would recommend it to anyone, which we have already. Thanks for a great week away!
Great Family Rental!
We spent five nights in this amazing rental! The property and home are even more beautiful than the pictures show! We enjoyed breathtaking sunsets on the private beach by the fire. The water in front of the house was shallow enough for my 6 and 8 year old to play safely. The walkout basement allowed us to have our own space without bothering my husband's aunt and uncle upstairs in the early morning hours. This house is perfect for two families vacationing together. We had a huge family room and plenty of space downstairs including a bathroom with a shower. The kitchenette downstairs has a full size refrigerator and coffee maker.
We were in touch with the owner a couple of times before and during the stay, and she was quick to accommodate us. It was 90 degrees most of the days we were there, but the breeze off the water was so nice that we never needed to use the air conditioning.
This property is away from the busy city but close enough to enjoy it. During our stay we enjoyed mini golf and ziplining with the kids. The men enjoyed visiting breweries and the ladies enjoyed the wineries. We went to Sleeping Bear Dunes (1 hour drive). We enjoyed antique shops as well as other shops in town. My husband was able to put his jet ski in the water at a public loading area just north of the property, which was fun for the kids. We brought kayaks, but there was one on the property. We all agreed that our favorite part of the vacation was relaxing on the private beach! I highly recommend this rental!
In addition to being in close proximity with 4 championship golf courses, world class fishing, boating, skiing, snowmobiling, swimming, horseback riding, hiking, excellent shopping district, 8 full service restaurants within 5 miles, spa and health club (Grand Traverse Resort), there are numerous festivals, including Cherry Festival, Traverse City Film Festival, Brewfest (winter), Winefest (summer/fall), Winterfest (February), Comedyfest (winter), Writer's Series, and winter sports. As well as Art galleries, antiques, symphony and live theater. Or if you are just looking for a quiet cozy place to sit by the fire and read a book or perhaps walk the beach or enjoy the sun set, this place truly provides something for everyone!
