  • No privacy


    If you were concerned about privacy in a neighborhood you have never been too, I would rethink this place to spend your time.

    There are no blinds in the kitchen window which faces directly to the the hosts house where anyone can see everything you are doing in the house at most angles (kitchen, dining room, living room) especially at night . All the blinds that do exist have missing pannels so therefore you could see through to the entire living areas. The only place in the house that I felt comfortable (with proper privacy) are in the bedrooms. The host lives directly across the street and her friends live behind (where you could also see through the sheer curtain display for the sliding glass door that leads to the patio). I felt very uncomfortable at this house at night time. I’m a female and was alone for this trip so not having privacy at night really made me feel unsafe. I felt like I was being watched the entire evening. I was very uncomfortable here.

    I also had an encounter with the host that was very awkward- I asked for some assistance about a beeping sound coming from the electric fireplace and she showed up at my door without any warning or heads. I would’ve been fine with a detailed text or phone call. Instead, I was forced to have a conversation with a stranger in my nightgown at 10:30pm. Worst experience ever.

    Manager's Response:

    Owner's response: "JND07, we want all of our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we're sorry that you experienced some issues during your trip.

    - Your privacy is important to us and we would never infringe on your privacy. Our home is in a very quiet safe place, we're sorry that you felt uncomfortable and that you didn't have the privacy you needed. We have window coverings on all the windows except for the window over the kitchen sink and when looking in can only see the hanging light. We also just got a new sofa in the living room and measured for new window treatments last week then should be arriving soon.
    - As for the encounter regarding the beeping noise you were hearing. When we received your text we thought it would be easier to just walk over and get you taken care of rather than type it out and send it via text. We knew you were up and did not think it would be an inconvenience or worried about you being in your pajamas. We apologize for this.
    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests. We will continue to deliver the 5-star experiences we are known for."

  • Great vacation home!


    Our family had a great stay at this wonderful home in northern Michigan! Annette was so helpful and the home was very cozy with everything we needed!

  • First Time


    We booked this place so we could take my uncle from Georgia to see Mackinac Island, the U.P., Lake Superior and of course the Bridge. we fell in love with the place the minute we walked in. The decor was just perfect for the house and had been well thought out. There were fresh flowers in a basket on the front door and on all the tables inside. Our host Annette actually lives across the street and was just wonderful. She saw us returning from a outing, came over introduced herself and made sure we didn't need anything. There was a small farmers market set up by the general store on Saturday with just wonderfully nice people. This house and the surroundings helped make this yet another memorable trip for my uncle. highly recommended.

  • Girls Trip to Northern Michigan


    We had a great time at at the Woodland Retreat. The home is comfortable and has plenty of room.

    This was a girls trip to northern MI and the house provided us with a great place to relax after visiting restaurants and shopping in the area.

    The house is in a beautiful setting and a short walk to the beach.

    Only issue is the wifi is very spotty and at tubes we had no service.
