Great spot for up north getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family trip up north. It was about 25 minutes away from Petoskey and the Bridge - both day trips for us. Julie's response time was almost immediate! Every time I contacted her, she was pleasant and professional. The house has everything you would need in the kitchen, and an extra fridge in the garage that we stored all of our beverages. Great living space to spread out, if you want to have different games/entertainment going on. The bed in the Master bedroom is hands down the most comfortable bed my husband and I have ever slept on! We did have one issue with the A/C (it was high 80's while we were there) but the repair man came the next morning. All in all a great location, a great property and great service. Check this place out!

Beautiful Large but Cozy Retreat in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented many wonderful places over the years, this one is definitely at the top. The home is very spacious and has room for everyone to spread out. We had six adults, two toddlers and an almost 4 year old. The home was clean, well equipped and the grounds are beautiful. We had corn hole, and can jam set up in the backyard along with a kiddie pool. We spent a couple days on the beach and rented a pontoon and did Mullet and Burt Lakes - Awesome!

You are centrally located to Petoskey, Gaylord, Mackinaw City and not far from Boyne City, Charlevoix and East Jordan and the small towns of Indian River and Wolverine offer a lot of small town charm too.

We are ATV and dirt bike riders and the Tomahawk Trail system is right there. We also enjoy Kayaking and the Sturgeon and Indian Rivers are 5-10 minutes away.

I can also see us coming back in the winter for cross country skiing, snow shoeing and just enjoying the scenery and warmth from the windows of this spectacular home.

Thank you for a wonderful vacation,

The Wood, Wood and Vettraino families

Amazing doesn't even do this cabin justice

  • 5 of 5

We fell in LOVE with this cabin in the woods!!! It was fully stocked with SO many extras and the cabin itself is just breathtaking (and so HUGE)!!!! We had a family of 10 and we had TONS of room!!! We absolutely loved our walks on their 20 acres and seeing all of the wildlife!!! We were so close to all major attractions and have already shared this cabin with so many people who saw pictures of it!!!! Thanks for lending us your home for a few days- it made our family vacation even more special!!!

Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. We had a group of eight adults, visiting from Wisconsin. We did the Mackinow City Bike Tour. We felt right at home here. It was peaceful and quiet, with plenty of room for a large group. Would love to come back here in the winter!

Very clean, nice, comfortable...better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this house. It was at a great location from the day trips we took to other tourist areas. House felt more like home, kitchen was well equipped, beds were comfortable, bathrooms were nice. Overall it was a great experience. Vivio's was a very neat place to visit to eat. Pizza was great but the atmosphere/decor was amazing. Thank you for a great trip!
