This was our first visit to Big Canoe and we absolutely LOVED it! Tom and Judi's home is so very inviting and has all the comforts for making our visit feel like home. They are also great to work with in making sure we had everything we needed. We had a family getaway with our son, daughter-in-law, and 3 boys (7, 4 and 6 weeks!). Almost Heaven was such a relaxing home and the beds were great! The fireplace and decorations are so very homey - very craftsman-like feel to it. We loved sitting out on the enclosed porch in the mornings having our coffee. The marina is a wonderful place to rent a pontoon boat and the boys had a great time fishing. Big Canoe has great hiking trails and we all made it to one of the waterfalls. The boys loved the soccer field and the pools and beach area. We were able to see turkey and deer and the whole setting in Big Canoe is gorgeous! This is a very family-friendly area and the children were more than welcome everywhere we went. It would be nice to visit this area in the Fall to see all of the leaves changing. We only wish we had gotten to stay longer. Thanks for making our visit so memorable and we will certainly come back! Best regards, Charlie, Connie, Robbie, Jessi, Bobby, Matthew and Tommy!
