About Erin and David Peck

We are a Family of 6 who realize how important family time and vacations are to happy and healthy families.

Erin and David Peck purchased this house in 2011

Why Erin and David Peck chose Traverse City

This is an unique opportunity to rent our beautiful home available for just 6 weeks this summer because my husband and I are working this summer at Interlochen Arts Camp and our family is staying in a cabin on the Interlochen campus.

We love our home, and want to open it to travelers this summer so they can enjoy the beauty of Nothern Michigan with their families, friends and loved ones. This is the perfect vacation home to build lifetime memories.

What makes this house unique

This elegant home is located in a beautiful wooded setting. You can turn right out of the driveway and walk down to Long Lake beach and boat launch. The beach has sand volleyball courts and picnic areas. Long Lake is known as the perfect lake for swimming, waterskiing and fishing......Or turn Left out of the driveway and 1 mile down the road is the quieter and less know Cedar Lake boat launch and fishing, where my husband has pulled large bass and pike out of Cedar Lake.

This area also has maintained hiking trails for family hikes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the large suspended screened in deck. We were surrounded by nature. We could hear the loons at night. The location was perfect for us. It is less than 10 minutes from Interlochen Center for the Arts and 10 minutes from Traverse City. Our grandkids enjoyed swiming in the Lake and playing in the sand at the beach. We will definitely be back for our next vacation up north.

average rating of 5.0 based on 12 reviews

So happy we chose this vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

This property is an excellent choice for a family vacation! Our group of eight adults and three kids had plenty of room in this spacious, well-appointed home. We especially loved gathering on the huge screened porch and around the fire pit, and the kids enjoyed exploring the woods behind the house.

The location was perfect for our family's varied interests: Interlochen events; Traverse City restaurants and shopping; golfing at several nearby courses; boating and fishing on Long Lake (we were very pleased with our pontoon rental from Up North Boat Rentals); winery tours, and just plain relaxing in this lovely wooded setting.

Great house just a short distance from all the sites

  • 5 of 5

We used this house for a multi-family vacation that included 4 smaller children. The house was great for all our needs, especially the the second downstairs living room space that came complete with lots of toys and was set up with Roku. The adults loved spending time out on the large screen porch, either for morning coffee or for evening relaxing. The kitchen also had everything needed to cook pretty much any meal. We've stayed in many other rental houses before, and this was one of our favorites with all that it had to offer and the good layout. The house was also located in a great spot, by being just a short walk (or drive) to Long Lake beach, and also being a quick 15-20 minutes to just about anything in Traverse City, and about 20-30 for any of the Sleeping Bear Dunes Locations. We'd definitely recommend this house!

Enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home for our multi-family vacation. There was plenty of space, bedrooms, and bathrooms for the four families we had. The location was perfect for day trips to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City, and Suttons Bay. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. I would recommend this as a great place to enjoy a vacation up north.

Great Home and Location!

  • 5 of 5

Listing was accurate regarding the location, layout and amenities.

Probably was well maintained

Customer Service was very good

I would recommend the property to friends or relatives.

Very central location for the Traverse City Area. Moomers was nearby but often very busy go in the afternoon. Amazing Ice Cream.

This house was the best one we have stayed at. It had plenty of room for our group of 9 people. We loved the mudroom off the front door that let us keep all of our stuff organized. The back screen in Deck was also great. Kitchen doesn't look big but it really did have plenty of space. Lots of bathrooms. Music player throughout the house. Lots of bedrooms and the pull out in the loft was in a good spot as well. The beds are listed as Queen but they really are full size. The couches in the family room upstairs were comfortable. Best Wifi signal and speed we have ever had in a rental. Ping pong table was nice. There is a trail next to the house but it didn't seem very long. I wouldn't say you could go hiking much on the property but it was central to tons of stuff including beaches.

I really can't say to many good things about this house. The owners were also great and extremely responsive. Thanks for the great vacation!

Beautiful home, accommodating hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our most met us with the keys and a full introduction to the property. Everything was clean and comfortable, and there were more than enough kitchen dishes, silverware, and appliances for basic needs. The house is a short distance to a lake which has swimming and boat access. There were even toys, a ping pong table, and video games in the basement for children.

The house is best suited for people with children, as most of the bedrooms have twin beds or bunk beds. There are plenty of bedrooms to accommodate many guests and families.

We especially liked the screened-in porch with fountain.

Thanks for a very comfortable stay!

Simply Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely fantastic! We could not have asked for a better trip. The house itself is incredible.....large patio, whole house multi room sound system, updated kitchen, and a large basement. At one point, we couldn't find a corkscrew. The owners were nice enough to buy one and even included two bottles of wine to go with it!! Lastly, the location is perfect. Tucked away just enough to allow for the type of relaxation that should be afforded while enjoying vacation, but right down the street from the beach and only 15 min from downtown Traverse City and all of the main attractions. You will not be disappointed with your stay!
