  • Great getaway


    I had to travel to Traverse city for business and it was a real pleasure staying at this beautiful home on the lake. It was so relaxing to come home from work and relax. The home was clean and the owner was very responsive to any questions we had. I recommend this place for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

  • The perfect place to decompress


    This is exactly what our family needed. The lake is peaceful, the breeze was fantastic, and the cabin was well furnished. There wasn't anything we had to go into town for other than just getting food. The cabin was the perfect mix of upscale and cozy, and we just felt at home. The manager was great at communicating with me, and even gave me a few pointers for fishing spots. We will definitely be back again.

  • Great place to stay


    We stayed here and used as a home base for day trips to Traverse City, Sleeping Bear dunes, and Torch Lake, it is well equipped, has everything you need, clean, easy check in and out, and beautiful sunsets, we really enjoyed playing bags along the lakefront with the kids, and playing in the water. Great for families.

  • Beautiful property with amazing sunsets!


    Our family stayed here and used it as a home base to enjoy the Traverse city area, great quiet place to come back to after our day trips to Traverse city, Sleeping Bear dunes, and Torch Lake, we hiked and bicycled locally, and enjoyed our evenings playing bags, and swimming while taking in the beautiful sunsets on the lakefront.
