Awesome Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 ladies for a girls weekend and wish it could have been an entire week! The house is beautiful - immaculate, updated, and beautifully decorated. We spent most of the weekend touring wineries, which I would highly recommend. But one of my favorite parts of our stay was taking my morning coffee down by the lake and enjoying the quiet serenity of the north woods. Gail was very helpful and made herself accessible- but we really didn't need anything!

Amazing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property with so much to do. We were able to kayak, swim, and watching the sunrise on the dock was a perfect way to start the morning. The house is gorgeous and well stocked with tolietries, bathroom towels, cleaning supplies, and utensils. Roger and Gail were very approachable and always responded quickly with any questions. All in all a perfect trip. I would highly recommend this property. Thank you Roger and Gail!

Fun place close to Interlochen

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 5 nights at this fantastic property. There were 3 generations and 7 people. So much to do. We swam, fished, kayaked, paddle boarded, and boated on Bass Lake. We took a trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes, and ate and shopped in Traverse City. We watched our granddaughter in her play at Interlochen. The location is excellent. The house is very well equipped and decorated beautifully. Going back next year.

EXCELLENT VALUE, can't wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

Gail is an amazing host and the house was perfect for 4 adult couples to share. Gail has thought of EVERYTHING and we appreciated all she left for us to utilize. We also brought our boat and used it on both Bass and Green Lakes, both were beautiful. Bass Lake is very quiet during the week, most evenings we had the entire lake to ourselves. It was such a great experience that we would rather book here again than gamble elsewhere. We found St. Ambrose Cellars a few miles away and quickly became regular customers! Thank you!
