The property is generally in good shape and well equipped. Message to the owner: The master bed fireplace flue is very noisy in high winds with creaks and a slamming damper, making one of our nights nearly impossible to sleep. Also, the entry hallway smoke detector started its low battery chirp during our last night of the stay. I depressed the hush to silence for 24 hrs, but recommend attention. Thanks for letting us stay there.
We rented the home for a family Girls' Weekend. We wanted to be close to Petoskey and Charlevoix. We originally booked it with the intention of having 12 adults stay. We ended up with 10 adults staying and 2 others stayed at a local motel. Sleeping was tight but we managed. Everything worked out very nicely. Jim was responsive and accommodating from the beginning. He even allowed us to check in early. It was nice having a full kitchen and laundry facilities. Three of us even took advantage of the lake with a November Polar Plunge, completed with snow on the ground. We would go back, again, if the opportunity presented itself.
