Would like to give 3.5 stars, but I bumped it up to 4. First, about the location. It was great. The house is quiet street with a very quiet sandy little beach directly across the street. The water was great for swimming. The kids loved it! It's very close to Traverse City, and there's a great recreation park 1/2 mile away accessible by a walking trail or by car. The house has a few issues. Some of the windows would not open/close correctly. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are very small. But our biggest concern was the mold. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, along with the laundry area smelled very strongly of mold. If you have mold allergies, be warned. The house was clean, and no pet hair to be found anywhere for a house that allows dogs. Also, the front lawn sprinklers run pretty much constantly throughout the day. Rain or shine. This makes it very hard for kids to play out on the front lawn. Some of the sprinklers shoot water up onto the deck. If you're sitting in certain chairs, be alert! You may get soaked. Don't leave anything out on the deck you don't want to get wet. Also, if your car is parked on the side driveway, be sure to roll up your windows, the sprinklers will douse your car with water. Also, be sure to keep the dining room floor clean. We had ants show up frequently when there were crumbs of food on the floor. Other than the above stated problems, the house was very nice. Thank you!
