There was 5 of us and we loved the view, the wild turkeys, the horse farm and riders. The house has great views, comfortable beds, great decor, was very clean. We had a James Bond marathon each night after coming home from playing golf or tourist in the greater northern MI. Great TV and surround sound. We had a honda pilot and a toyota prius, since was summertime we both could make it up the drive and around the house with no problem. If have more vehicles or don't want to drive on the sandy driveway you can park at the end of the blacktop and walk in. I can see in the winter you would need a 4wd or all wheel drive if there is snow. Gary is wonderful to work with and in his contract he mentions the high mineral content in the water. Beware: take your own drinking water for drinking, making coffee etc, the sulpher and iron content is high in the water. I would have given this place 5 stars but I can't recommend using the clothes washer since the minerals will stain your clothes, one of our friends find out the hard way, you will notice it on the towels. There is a laundry mat across from Glen's Market. We recommend Short's Brewery, Toonies, The smokehouse and Moka's in town. Over on Torch Lake is Docksides, typical bar type food but neat place to seat outside. The area is mainly golf, mountain biking, hiking and boating/kayaking in the summer. If get a chance travel a short distance to visit Traverse City and Charlevoix. If want to find petoskey rocks go to Fisherman Island State Park just south of Charlevoix.
