hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was so cute! Kara did an amazing job on the interior design. It was set up with a master bedroom and on suite and then a second full bathroom on the floor, full kitchen. Then the loft is just as cute with a queen bed and 3 single beds, and a pull out couch. I stayed here with most of my family(mom, dad, 2 brothers one of there girlfriends, my finance and our dog) and it worked out wonderful. This house is also on 10 acres in between 2 farms. Our 3 year old lab loved it! The house felt so homey!! It's location is perfect not far from Elk rapids, Torch lake or Traverse city!! Eric was very helpful as well and even had wood on the property for a bonfire. The bonfire pit is awesome!! I couldn't be happier with our stay. Kara and Eric thanks for letting us come and enjoy your place!!

Awesome place nice big garage and top notch accommodations

  • 5 of 5

My motorcycle club had a gathering at the Grand Traverse Resort and instead of paying the resorts high price our chapter went in and rented this, Kara was more than accommodating letting us use the garage to park our bikes, it was a quick ride to the resort. This is a great place and well upkept. We are already planning when we'll be back. Thanks!

Great location! Cute, clean, comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place. It’s close to Traverse City and Elk Rapids (10-15 minutes). It’s such a nice quiet setting and they have everything you need in the house! Plenty of towels, blankets, kitchen utensils, you don’t have to worry about much of anything! Loved that there were 2 bathrooms, with 6 women it’s a must. This place had plenty of room for all of us, we will definitely be back! Thanks again!

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the quality and cleanliness of the house and the country setting was lovely. We enjoyed watching the cows and even saw a wild turkey. Our hosts were warm and friendly which made our stay even that much better. I highly recommend this location to anyone wanting a quiet place to relax near TC.
