  • Relaxing and secluded setting


    Communication with property owner / manager was prompt and friendly. Property was in great shape and well stocked with all the necessary amenities in the kitchen and bathrooms. Plenty of games for the whole family to enjoy and pass time. Plenty of room for our party of 10. Would highly recommend and will likely rebook should we ever return to the area.

  • Wonderful Cottage


    We chose this cottage because of its proximity to the Traverse City area. We are three gals that just wanted a quiet place to hang out for a few days and we were delighted with this cottage! It was clean, comfortable and homey. The property was lovely. We all agreed that the sunroom was an essential part of this cottage and we used that room the most. The weather cooperated and we enjoyed swans, birds and an occasional pontoon boat motoring by on the lake. This was a perfect getaway!

  • Great lakeside property


    We had 9 people staying here for a weekend golf trip. We all had a comfy place to sleep and the house is right next to the lake so it's quiet and soothing. Property manager was responsive and polite throughout our stay and very accommodating. Would definitely rent this place again.
