Quite frankly, we were a bit disappointed when we first moved to Michigan from Anchorage, AK. Our active lifestyle in Alaska, became difficult to maintain when we no longer had the mountains to climb or the miles of groomed ski trails to traverse. An anniversary trip to Traverse City (without the children) changed our minds about Michigan and we began looking for vacation rental property. It took us about 7 months, but we believe we found the perfect place.

Awesome location! Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for the perfect vacation home, this is it. The convienent location is right across the street from a great beach and picnic area. Having a small grocery store almost next door was helpful. And the house had plenty of room for 5 kids and 6 adults. Having 3 bathrooms and central air for our 2 muggy days was priceless. Nice backyard for eating outside and campfires. The refrigerator is large enough to hold lots of food, and the water pressure is strong and no well water smell! Enough dishes for all of your guests. The kids loved the ping pong table downstairs and there are lots of different areas to hang out in. We used the kayaks every day. Long Lake is beautiful and we rented a boat one day and you can temporarily tie up at the dock on the beach. And having a washer and dryer is also a nice perk! Meijers and WalMart are just a short drive away.
We were just a 20 minute drive from Lake Michigan and lots of tourist attractions.
The owners are great to deal with and were quick to respond to our questions.
You will have a great stay!

Group of 8 enjoyed long weekend at Halcyon House

  • 5 of 5
We found Halcyon House to be affordable, well equipped and very comfortable for our group of 8 adults and one baby. With couples and singles in the group, all were able to have the privacy and comfort we wanted and enjoy group time in the kitchen and living room areas. There is even more room in the Teen Room that we did not utilize. The property is well located with a recreational beach, Traverse City and Empire Beach nearby. Most of our activities took place in Traverse City and we found that a very easy drive to and from the house. Interested parties with pets or small children should be aware that the property is on a fairly traveled street. However, street noise is not an issue, and with proper supervision, this should pose no problem. I will recommend this property to friends or relatives planning to travel to the Traverse City area.
