  • Awesome Place!

    "Big, clean and stylish house with plenty of room to spread out and relax. No A/C but didn't need it with the breeze off the Lake and tons of windows and fans. Quiet neighborhood, plenty of parking, firewood is provided and everything you need is provided for cooking and having fun with the family. The owner is also easy to get a hold of and quite responsive. One small issue and this is the reason for a 4 star rating. The house is for sale and the owner only mentioned that there is the possibility of a showing happening while we were there a couple days before our arrival date. I think this is something that should have been mentioned up front in the description of the house or could be handled differently when there are people paying to stay somewhere. We were not asked to leave during the showing but felt like it would be a very awkward situation if we had been there when prospective buyers were looking around. We were also a little uneasy about strangers being a house we paid to rent with our stuff lying around and us not there. Might be a small thing, but it was enough to make part of our weekend not so awesome."

  • Nice time!

    "Charming lakefront home. Beautiful craftsmanship in the house, with a lot of great seating for our large group. No swimmers itch from the 15 people who stayed here for a week. Owners very responsive and helpful!"

  • Good house in a fabulous location!

    "We had two adults and two teenagers that stayed in this house in mid August. The location was absolutely incredible with a very nice, sandy beach and a perfect view of the sunsets! We had plenty of room inside and outside the house. The canoe and paddle boat were nice additions to have. The owners were very responsive and easy to deal with. The house was very clean. No air conditioning but lots of fans. We rented a pontoon boat for a day from B&B marina. They were also great to deal with. We switched our reservation from one day to another, due to the weather, and they were very nice and flexible. It was great to have a place to tie off the boat by the house so we could go in for lunch and a bathroom break! My only suggestions for improvement would be some of the cookware and the barbecue, and the Internet and cable reception were sometimes spotty. While there were plenty of cooking supplies, some of the pans were worn out with the coating very worn and scratched. Also the barbecue was sketchy and would not light. We did not contact the owners about the above since we considered them minor issues. Overall, a great property to stay at! Loved being so close to Mackinac and Traverse City. We would absolutely stay here again!"
