We worked with our builder to provide a home that will meet our requirements to comfortably and privately house multiple families. The second story is a separate suite w/ 2 queen beds and 3/4 bath. The master suite has shower plus whirlpool tub. The other 2 bedrooms have a full bath between them with doors to each room, and a door between this suite and the living room.

CANCELLATIONS: If it becomes necessary to cancel your reservation, the rental portion of any monies paid will be refunded only if your property is re-rented for the same time period and at the same amount.If we are unable to re-rent the property, the rental portion of any monies paid shall be forfeited.

We will definitely return!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an incredible ski weekend. Very clean and well equipped. Four queen beds and one king were perfect for our group. Just a minute drive to the ski hill. The house was open and cozy warm when we arrived. The two car garage easily fit both of our vehicles. We will definitely stay again! Extremely nice hosts! Would highly recommend!

Perfect for a ski trip.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for long weekend ski trip with our adult children. The location of the house is perfect for quickly getting to & from the Boyne Highland slopes. It virtually never stopped snowing the entire time we were there - which is what you want on a ski trip - but the drive was plowed early each morning before we were prepared to head out for the day and our cars were comfortably parked in the available garage. The interior is comfortably furnished, well stocked and provides more than enough room for 7 adults. We would certainly consider this house for any future ski trips to the area and would recommend it to others.
