Relaxing, long summer weekend

  • 5 of 5
I rented this cottage because of the possibility of renting for less than a week in the summer (which is very difficult to find). We enjoyed our stay so much though, I wish we would have had the cottage for a week. The cottage is on the small side, but it was sufficiently big enough for us: 4 adults, 1 toddler, and a dog. We really enjoyed walking across the small street to the resort beach. We spent a lot of time in the water and sand. We used the row boats and rented a motor boat one day. With our 2-year-old, we visited the playground almost everyday. The playground is old and unique; it was fun to have something different. We enjoyed being close to Traverse City and going there for dinner and shopping. Inside the house, we found everything we needed. The weather was nice and not hot for August, so it was ok that there was no A/C. If we're looking for a getaway in the Traverse City area again, we'll definitely stay here again.

Adorable, Spotless, Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5
This little cottage has a gorgeous lake view, updated grill, and new kitchen. The wifi and flat screen tv were pluses as well. All rooms were small but met our needs since we spent most time outdoors. Everything was spotless and well taken care of. Beds were super comfy. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars was is lacked air conditioning although it wasn't an issue at all for us since there were ceiling fans. Owners were very helpful and easy to work with. We won't look for any other cottages from now on and will be repeat customers!

Susan and Lee from Crown Point, Indiana

My husband and I were looking for a nice cottage on a lake with good fishing at a reasonable price and we found that with this cottage. It was very clean and in excellent shape when we arrived. We were in Traverse City in the middle of July and it was unfortunately a week that was not only hot there but throughout the whole nation. This did make sleeping a bit difficult a night or two but we knew from reading the info. on this cottage that there were ceiling fans which certainly helped. We also brought a couple of our own fans which made it more bearable for sleeping. Short of the heat, the cottage was very comfortable for our needs. This is a lovely area to be in especially for fishing and I would recommend it highly to anyone who wants to get away. The beach is nice for young families and there is also a nice shaded playground for little ones. We used the row boat that came with our cottage and brought our own electric motor and scooted along just great on the lakes. The owners of this cottage have been very accommodating and pleasant to deal with along with the folks who run the resort. Very nice people to deal with. We would definitely recommend this property and staying at this resort and would love to come back especially in the fall with the color changes.

4th of July Weekend 2010

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at this cozy little cottage. Everyone there was really friendly. It was very quiet and peaceful at night. We cooked most of our food instead of going out to eat in town. It was a lot of fun. Overall, it was a fantastic place to stay.
My suggestion would be to have an air conditioner wall unit or something put in. It was super hot the the whole time we were there. There was no breeze, so opening the windows did not help at all. There were no fans in there either. It was actually pretty difficult to sleep in that kind of condition. But that is my only complaint! Loved it. I would definitely come back. :)
