I don't really want to write a good review of this home, because I want to keep it a secret from everyone else! However, Gary deserves an awesome review, because he's an excellent home owner.
Many of the homes in the area boast closeness to Interlochen, being a 15 minute DRIVE away, but Gary's house is a 3 minute bike ride, or a 7 minute walk. Perfect!
As an allergy sufferer, I needed a home with new construction and central air. Perfect again.
As much as we like to "get away from it all", we still appreciated the great entertainment system--flat screen TV, Blu-Ray DVD player and access to Netflix.
The kitchen was fully stocked with appliances and new dishes/glasses. The dishwasher/oven/stove and refrigerator all are new. An added bonus was VIP access cards hanging on the refrigerator to all the summer concerts at Interlochen.
The beds were so comfortable and there were plenty of linens, so don't bring any of your own. Too, the Bosch washer and dryer worked like a dream, and Gary even supplied detergent and dryer sheets!
Too, there's a garage, complete with garage door opener. For all the homes we've rented in the area, this was a first. Plenty of room for our car and our five bikes.
We just loved staying there for the four weeks we were at camp, and we were all very sad to leave. Gary was easy to contact when we were setting up the rental agreement, and returned our calls within minutes.
Now, don't rent it next summer, because we want to :-)
