  • Girls week in the UP

    "This house was so nice, and Empire was a great little town with very nice people. We walked to the beach at night and watched the beautiful sunsets. We were so close to the Sleepy Bear National Park, we enjoyed the great trails and the views were amazing! We had a great time cooking, playing cards and just enjoying the beautiful area, even watched the northern lights - bonus! Definitely would return. We did hang a sheet over the back window at night as there is no window treatment on the back."

  • Really Enjoyed This Home

    "My wife and I and our two adult daughters stayed at Bear Hollow. We had a wonderful vacation. Part of why we enjoyed it so much was this great little cottage. It is a very well maintained property and was very clean when we arrived. And was completely outfitted with everything you would need for the week. From hand soap to kitchen towels to an abundance of bath towels. It was about a 2 minute stroll to the private beach with beautiful views of Lake Michigan. One thing we really enjoyed was walking into downtown Glen Arbor for shopping and dinner. Our favorite place is sitting outside at Art's Tavern. We also enjoyed a hearty breakfast at Art's before heading up to Cathead Bay in Northport to search for Petoskey stones."

  • Beautiful home and location - could use some TLC

    "The home is large and beautiful. The location is perfect and couldnt get any better. However, this is an older home and could use some TLC. Half of the lights did not work (were missing light bulbs or just didnt turn on). The windows do not open (missing actual handles). There was no exhaust fan on the stove. The furnace was not working in the lower level (it was very cold). There is well water (which should have been disclosed and would have been helpful to know up front - we made several trips to the store to buy bottled water). The house was "surface" clean, however the amount of dust and buildup was unbelievable. The vents were covered in dust and under the couches there was probably an inch of dust and dirt build up. After the first night, both me and my 9 month old got sick and were congested from all the dust. A nice deep cleaning of the home could remedy this. Also, there were several spider webs, dead flies, and other "gross" things by all the windows. This did not help with having young children who crawl on the floor. Also, if you have small children - bring 2 baby gates - will help block off the stairs! Just some feedback worth sharing. Maybe when the kids get older we would consider staying here again. You cant beat the location and views. So if you can handle the dust and "dated" nature of the home - this is a great house. A few things that could make this a 5...updated linens on all the beds, clean floors and windows, updated check in sheet (it was so dirty and grubby). Again, just a little TLC would go a long way! For $550 a night I would expect some nicer/cleaner things."

  • Love this home!

    "We had a fantastic stay at this beautiful beach home. We LOVE Empire and we LOVE this home. It accommodates our family perfectly. The home was clean and had everything we needed. The location is perfect distance to the beach. I personally enjoyed the swing on the front porch to sit and read and enjoy the nice summer evenings. This is our second summer renting this home and we plan to rent it again if available. Great owners!"
