Guestbook comments from the owner

What a delightfully beautiful cottage. We found everything one could possible need. The cottage has many family heirlooms decorating the inside, but also has all the modern amenities one would expect at a five star hotel. Very relaxing! We will be back.

Just what we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5
Our family loved this cottage last summer. Six of us found everything we were looking for. From the time we walked in the front door we felt welcomed by the warm log walls and wood floors plus the stone fireplace. My husband and I found the hot tub our relax place with a cup of coffee listening to birds in the early morning. Our sons fished and caught many turtles. The girls enjoyed the paddle boat and canoe. When it rained one day we found time to play games and enjoy family time like we never take time for at home. With four kids the washer and dryer were very convenient. We have stayed at many cottages, but this one tops our favorite list. We will be back!

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that you enjoyed our log cottage. We have had many years of family gatherings at the cottage and lived their full time for a few years ourselves. It is our pleasure to share it with enthusiastic renters who like the unique log home setting on a no gas motor lake. We hope you return soon.

Terrific time of fun and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second vacation stay at the cabin. We love to come in the fall. Wine country was great, antiquing at Wilson's in TC, trout fishing the Au Sable in Grayling, pottery, furniture and dry goods shopping in the Amish country of Mio. Pizza at G's in Kalkaska was the best I have eaten. It was all great! And each night how wonderful to come back to the cozy cabin on Perch Lake. It just don't get much better, in my opinion!

This cabin is everything the add stated it was.

  • 5 of 5
Very clean, very quiet, very pleasant surroundings. We sold our cottage three years ago because my wife wanted to vacation in different places through the summer. This cabin will be one we would like to come back too though. One of my favorite things that we did was drive to a beach near the giant sand dunes and snorkel in the crystal clear waters of Lake Michigan. The kids loved catching and releasing all the turtles and frogs right outside the backyard. We fished everyday, however we did not catch any. This is more likely due to my lack of fishing skills and having a 2, 4 & 6 year old playing in the water, then for lack of big fish in the lake. I am very glad we found this place and thankful for the kirchners allowing strangers to have access to it.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Kirchner's Perch Lake cabin. The cabin is very quaint and comfortable. Our entire family took full advantage of all amenities, especially the Jacuzzi at the end of each relaxing day. Paul & Jean were wonderful hosts, making themselves available to address all of our questions before and during our stay. Their hospitality was first class. Thank you both for helping us make a wonderful family vacation memory. Blessings!

Quintessential "up north" lakeside cottage.

Quintessential "up north" lakeside cottage.
  • 5 of 5
This cottage is a perfect study in "up north" living. It was clean, updated, and full of the important amenities yet still cozy and homey. The surrounding area is quiet and beautiful. We loved being close enough to the hustle and bustle of Traverse City but retreating to the quiet of the cottage when we had our fill of the city. Paul and Jean were very attentive hosts and stayed in touch with us and responded immediately to our e-mails and phone calls. We WILL recommend this home to family and friends and would like to return ourselves in the near future.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a very relaxing weekend and really enjoyed our stay. This cabin is clean and very well-maintained, the decor is really amazing for the "up north" feeling. We've stayed in the area at other venues in the past. This is definitely the most "complete" cabin - with the paddle boat, canoe, rowboat, gas grill and especially the hot tub, and nice peaceful lake. (There a Labor Day party across the lake with some music - but it was not annoying and there were some nice fireworks that evening as a bonus). We went fishing a bit and although the warm lake made it tough we did catch a nice bass and some small perch and bluegill.
I would definitely recommend this for couples or families. Our kids are grown now but a place like this would have been perfect when they were young. There is a lot to do in Traverse City - many restaurants, shops, golf courses - but since the weather was nice and the cottage so comfortable - we chose to stay at the cabin mostly and enjoy the lake, read a book, or soak in the hot tub.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind comments. Our children vacationed with us at Perch Lake Cottage while growing up and still love the ambiance, and peacefulness of visiting. We have family reunions here every year.
