  • Kayaking trip


    Overall the home and location were great. Communication with property management was frustrating. Took several days for a response.

    Beds were not very comfortable, but that is to be expected. Definitely need to spray for spiders, saw more than one would expect.

    Location was fabulous. Close to town and the Au Sable River. Loved the pool table and all the games they provided, as we did have rain one of the days we were there. Neighborhood was quiet and we enjoyed walking the neighborhood loop every morning.

    All in all I would recommend the home and would consider staying there again.

  • Thanksgiving Hunting


    This is an absolute amazing place to stay if you are trying to get away! My family and friends have been getting together to go hunting every Thanksgiving weekend for the last 12 years and this is by far the best place we've ever stayed. It gives the feeling of getting away while still ensuring a familiar home notion. The pool table is a fun addition for entertainment. The kitchen is furnished and we cooked breakfast and dinners everyday. This is place is super popular so if you get the chance to rent it, do it! We missed out last year but were super happy to get it again this year. I highly recommend staying here, just not Thanksgiving weekend because we want it every year : ). The property managers are super kind and helpful. The place is also super clean and the layout of the place is great! Lastly, the location of the place is right next to the downtown stores. Check them out if you can!

  • Real nice


    No issues at all. Plenty of room. Never heard from anyone which is just fine. Don’t worry about booking this one. Mike

  • Nice place but needs some maintenance


    We really enjoyed our stay but did have a few issues. For example, the dishwasher door was nearly impossible to shut and sometimes wouldn't stay shut. One of the pockets of the pool table would fall right off when a ball was shot into it. The grill was falling apart (the burners). The bed in the windowless bedroom squeaked quite badly (so loudly that it woke up the 4 month old baby). If the property manager took care of these things, it would be great.
