  • I want to go right back.

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Loved this place. It was really clean and the kitchen supplies were well stocked. It is right on the beach so we woke up to the sound of crashing waves every morning. And wow, the amazingly soft sand! We walked for miles along the beach. There is also a pool and hot tub, and this is a short walk to a restaurant on the beach and to shopping, and there are lots more shopping options a quick drive away. The property manager was really helpful and friendly and they were great about providing info before our stay. The only thing I'd want to change is I wish I had a longer vacation."

  • Salmon Chasers 2016

    "Where does the time go? Just last Tuesday we were fishing the Betsie in a raucous thunderstorm. The fishing was pretty bad. I'm not going to lie about it. I think we were a bit early this year. There were some fish in the river but the numbers seemed very low. Even the dead spawned out salmon were almost nonexistent. Hard to plan a trip a year out when so many conditions contribute to the salmon runs. I've never heard the phrase "That's why they call it fishing and not catching" more than this year. However, being fishermen, we know to have a plan B and sometimes C, and D to offset any fishing woes. Five guys this trip and it was the 29th year we've been coming up here. Almost Home is the perfect launch pad for our activities and excursions for the week. If you want the perfect trip follow these rules. 1. Bring all your fishing equipment (All of it!) You have piers, docks, rivers, and lakes. Wednesday evening, 3 of us went down to the Crystal Lake fishing dock and caught about a 100 Rock Bass. 2. Bring bikes. You’re sitting on top of the Bestie Valley Trail. You’re halfway between Frankfort and Thompsonville. It’s a 20 mile round trip from the house to Frankfort and back. Awesome views following Crystal Lake then the Betsie River and finally the big water in Frankfort. We rode to the Stormcloud Brewery in Frankfort for a couple of pints before heading back. Plan for 2 hours of ride time. Stop and have some fun! You could easily spend a half day or more in the bike friendly town of Frankfort. 3. Bring Kayaks. A little more tricky because you’ll need a chase vehicle but worth it! Put in above the dam or on river road. I would not launch to go downstream at the dam in the fall. You’ll have to pass about a 100 people and there is a portage this year about a ½ mile down. If you’re quiet you’ll see tons of birds, Bald Eagles, and waterfowl. We packed the rods and caught a nice salmon and some rainbow trout. 4. Bring your golf clubs. We didn’t this year but in years past we tore it up. There are some great golf courses up here (Pinecroft, Crystal MT.) to challenge any level of play. Plus, the views are amazing. 5. Bring your camera. And I’m not talking a cell phone. You could spend an entire day or week just getting some fantastic shots. We cooked every day at the house. Between the kitchen and the grill you have everything that you need to eat like royalty. The Shop and Save store in Benzonia (couple miles away) is stocked with some great prov"

  • Ein gemütliches und perfektes Haus!

    "Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich und einladend eingerichtet. Alles funktioniert prima, beste TV Technik. Die Küche lässt ebenfalls keine Wünsche offen. Super sauber und ordentlich. Das Grundstück ist komplett eingezäunt, was für unsere Hunde sehr praktisch war und die überdachte Terrasse war wirklich wunderbar. Zu unserem vollkommenen Glück hätte nur noch eine Waschmaschine gefehlt, damit man mal schnell die Strandsachen auswaschen kann. Leider liegt die Ferienaussiedlung in unmittelbarer Nähe der Autobahn und die Geräusche sind schon ein bisschen störend, besonders wenn man nachts bei offenem Fenster schlafen möchte. Aber das Haus und die Strandnähe machen diese Kleinigkeiten wett und wir werden gerne wiederkommen."
