  • Girls weekend


    The location is nice and easy to find. Quiet and peaceful. House is beautiful and back porch and yard allowed for slit of space for our group of 8. Beds were comfortable and we used the kitchen for a few meals. Would recommend!

  • Beautiful choice and great location for our annual girls weekend!


    We rented the house and maxed out the beds for our annual girls weekend. We always bounce around Northern Michigan for a long weekend with friends. Our group size has grown, making it a challenge to find the right space to rent. The house is easy to find and in a nice neighborhood near the lake. We enjoyed the 3 seasons room for meals and games. The fire pit area was also perfect. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms clean and updated.
