Clean. Spacious. Great Lake view
Great place! Had everything we needed. Not far from shopping, activities etc. Very clean. Will definitely be going back !! 😊�
Very nice home on the lake
We enjoyed our visit. The house had everything needed for a great stay. The owner was helpful with any questions we had.
Great place for a family!
Our family had a wonderful time! The lake is perfect. We had rented a fishing boat for the week that Shawn's Rentals dropped off and picked up right at the dock. We caught a ton of fish! Saw a bunch of wildlife (Racoons, Deer, Hawks, Turtles, etc.) The house is nice and has a lot of room. We were able to really relax. It is close enough to Traverse City that we were able to take a few day trips.
Negatives: No central air, the water pressure is not very good, there are 72 stairs down to the lake (which is a chore climbing up each time), when we got there it was not the cleanest house we have stayed at...however we left it in better condition then we got it. Nothing so negative that it would deter us from staying again!
The owners are very quick to respond (a definite bonus) and overall, we had a wonderful stay!
For the record, our home DOES have central air. It was installed on July 31, 2018. Also, like all homes on the lake we are at the mercy of a community well for our water so the pressure isn’t great but sufficient for all needs.
Spacious house with good view
First family vacation and we totally enjoyed the stay. House was in good shape and plenty of room for all of us! Nice breeze and with ceiling fans no need for air condition.Only downfall was the 74 steps down to lake. Awesome vacation!
We enjoyed our relaxing stay! The swim pad, paddle boat and water kept my 7 and 8 year old busy for the week. The no wake cove is very quiet and I could trust my boys to go out in the paddle boat with no issues (life preservers of course). I could see and call to them all the way across the cove.
The plan was to stay and relax and not run around. After grocery shopping on Monday that is exactly what we did. The kitchen was very well equipped to meet all our needs and the grill was super convenient. It was awesome to wash clothes as needed (boys and beach towels).
Some reviews I read before coming rated a 4 but provided no reasons. I gave it a 5 because there are only 2 downsides to the place which we knew going in but there is always an upside. One there are stairs to the water. While I was not a fan I did appreciate the bench part way down. My kids on the other hand though it was a great way for them to run off energy and so did I. The other is that we had some hot days and there is no air conditioning. The upside is that the kids spent more time in the water and now appreciate air conditioning. The breeze on the deck was amazing and the ceiling fans very much appreciated.
The pictures are a great representation of the place and we would stay again. The owner was very response before and during out stay..
Great lakeside cottage
This house met all of our needs! Everything was clean and well kept. The outdoor deck was great to hangout on and the dock provided a nice view of the lake. Only thing that could have been nice was having A/C as we were there on a very warm weekend but the ceiling fans and breeze off the lake helped quite a bit and made having no A/C tolerable. Would recommend this home to others!
