The condo was perfect for our family vacation. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, we were able to spread out and the kids each had their own beds. The kitchen had everything we needed and gave us the chance to save money by making some of our own meals and having supplies in the frig for picnic lunches. We loved the pools, especially the outdoor one which overlooked the lake below...just beautiful! The condo had an outdoor movie one night which was fun. Our favorite condo amenity was by far the beach club. It was awesome! Cute beach with lots beach chairs and a huge shallow swimming area for the kids. There is a playground, sandpit volleyball, basketball, shuffle board and ping pong. Plus gas grills for an easy cookout. Just bring the food, everything else is there. The overall location of the condo was perfect...right in the middle of all the things we wanted to do. Mackinaw City is an hour and a half North. We spend a day on the island riding bikes, exploring the historic sites and visiting fudge shops. We also spent a day visiting the historic sites in Mackinaw City. Sleeping Bear Dunes (an hour and a half East) was a family favorite. We enjoyed climbing the dunes, hiking, swimming at the beach, and the live band at Boondocks in Glen Arbor. We did a day trip to Mission Point Peninsula for wine tasting and beaches. The little town of Bellaire (just 3 miles away) has great restaurants, a big park with a couple of playgrounds and a grocery store. There are lakes all around if you enjoy boating or fishing. Plus the little towns all along the lake Michigan shore and Grand Traverse Bay offer shopping, great restaurants and so much "atmosphere". You really feel like you are on vacation with so much to explore and do. Don't forget to save a few days for just relaxing by the pool or the beach. It is a vacation, after all. Enjoy!
