We were very satisfied with our stay
The cabin was exactly as advertised and we were pleased with the property. The owner was GREAT. His communication was prompt and he kindly assisted us with a few small requests. We didn't have time to explore the trails and water but enjoyed the quiet surroundings and peaceful front porch. This VRBO experience was great.
Spacious! Clean! Private! Surrounded by woods!
July 23 -26. 2018 Our annual family vacation. First time here near Traverse City. Cabin in the woods describes this cabin perfectly. Has 6 comfy beds to sleep up to 12 in a communal area that has sliding privacy doors to close off and make four sleeping bedrooms, plus comfy couches too. Plus one bedroom at the other end of the house. 2 full baths. CLEAN!
extra large deck, fire pit for some-mores, plenty of parking, an outdoor person's paradise. Inside - large living room and dining room. While not updated (as of 2018), this kitchen has all you need. Plenty of wildlife. Drive carefully up the driveway - deer crossing.
Items to note: Looooong driveway is sandy and bumpy. Follow directions of the owner on the rental info to find the entrance off the paved road. Kitchen has an old dishwasher that still works, Mr. Coffee, and wineopener in the drawer. Bring your own bag of ice for your drinks and store in freezer. Enough pots and pans for cooking on gas stove. Relatively new Washer and dryer/detergent/dryer sheets. Air conditioned bedrooms. Keep doors and windows closed to keep house cool. No Internet or WiFi - but who needs it?!! We didn't turn on the TV once.
Close to all Traverse City activities, TART trail is in town- driveway too sandy to ride bikes to town. VASA trail in through the woods a bit- get directions from owner. Close to beaches, peninsulas; about one hour to Lake Michigan/Sleeping Bear Dunes/canoe liveries. 30 minutes to wineries and tip of Old Mission Peninsula. About 2 hours to Mackinaw City. 15 minutes to grocery store.
What else can I say? Our little pre-schoolers could run around and ride bikes without a care. Plenty of room for bocci, ladder golf, whiffle ball tournament, etc. Highly recommend if you are a wanna-be camper but don't like tents - this is it!
I'm not going to lie, when we got to the cabin I was a little worried because we were having 90 degree + days and it was hot, especially with no AC. However, when we got there Brian was actually installing two window units. This cabin was awesome! A ton of rooms, very clean, spacious, and just had so much fun. Will be returning!
Great place to stay
We love this place! Lots of room and so close to town.
