  • Nice stay


    We enjoyed our stay. It was tough with no air conditioning in summer in July. There are fans. Beds were comfy. No laundry, so prepare for that. Kitchen is equipped with eating utensils, a few cooking utensils, plates, mugs, cups, bowls, a few pans. No coffee but there were filters. No cooking oil supplied. There was salt and pepper. We had to share bath towels for the duration of stay. Only given 5. Prepare for that too. There was no outdoor patio that was sufficient enough to eat on. We were a little disappointed with the fire pit and the area it was in on the property. It was located on a concrete slab which may have been a home or large shed at some point. Didn’t have that up north feel for a fire pit. We loved the wood paneling and the decor, it did give an up north and cozy feel. We got locked out and Bill was there within 5 minutes to help us. Thanks for having us!

  • Nice trip


    Overall the place and space in front were cozy and nice , we had everything we needed for our stay .

    My two main things I struggled with is the AC , the house was super hot we couldn’t sleep and also so many bugs everywhere ..

    Bill was nice and responsive, the home smelled a bit weird but not dirty

  • Wonderful Setting


    My wife and I stayed here for five nights. The quiet setting was just what we were looking for and the proximity to Sutton's Bay and Traverse City made it ideal.

  • Great Home Base


    We stayed here due to the location and the ability to easily sleep our family of 4. We loved the property itself for the quiet and secluded feel to it. However, it was only 5 minutes into the town of Suttons Bay and 10-12 minutes into Traverse City. We found it easy enough to do a day to the Sleeping Bear Dunes and beaches of Lake Michigan. We greatly enjoyed our stay and will definitely plan for another trip here next season.
