We had such a wonderful time at Maple Woods. We were surprised by the warm, "up north" look and feel. As it was a cool week in summer, we loved the gas fireplace but also the air-conditioned upstairs bedrooms. The cottage was clean, well-stocked and with clear instructions. Like others have said, we ended up staying at the cottage more than we expected-it was so warm and homey! The kids loved the lake and water toys, and fishing was fabulous. To top it off, the owners were simply wonderful to work with. It is obvious they love their home and love sharing it with others. The location is also great- minutes to Interlochen and not much farther to so many of northern Michigan's top sights/destinations. I imagine we will be back!
