Best Place For a Morning Coffee

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 16, 2013

Our first trip to Traverse City was 3 years ago. Since then we have been HOOKED!
It's not just that TC and surrounding areas are amazing, it's the cottage that completes the package.

I loved waking every morning and having coffee on the porch. Some days I was lucky enough to watch the sunrise with breakfast.

The cottage is well cared for, and extremely clean. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, utensils and there is equipment to make a wide variety of meals.

Everything that has been listed on Duane and Vicki's listing overview is accurate. We found having a dryer very handy, especially after a rainy day run.

Being able to store our bicycles and kayak in the garage was a relief. Other VRBO's do not provide such luxuries.

I did read on one of the previous reviews that another renter found the water "smells like rotten eggs". During our time at the cottage there were few times when the smell was noticed. We also drank the water from the taps. The smell has never been an issue for us during our stays.

The T.A.R.T. trail is just a hill away. It's easy access for a car-less ride into town. The T.A.R.T. trail is also a great paved trail for a nice long run. On our latest stay we explored the VASA trail on mountain bikes and running shoes. What a sandy delight!

There are so many places to explore that are either a quick drive, bike ride, SUP, or run away. Duane and Vicki's cottage makes for a perfect home base.

Pure Michigan......Location, Private, SERENITY

We all have those moments during the year when we need to escape, disconnect and rejuvenate ourselves. My wife and I decided that the first weekend of October was our moment. We were blessed when we decided to rent this cottage. The location is fantastic, only 15 mins from downtown Traverse City. Private setting, phenomenal views, a wonderful beach and very clean. Over the weekend my wife and I explored Traverse City, the Wineries on Old Mission Peninsula, drove the 20 mile Tunnel of Trees in Harbor Springs and experienced too many great restaurants. While these were all wonderful moments our favorite time was relaxing in the morning and evening at the cottage.

Nice Stay!

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 2, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
Spent a great week here!

Pros:
*Extremely clean, well maintained home. Nice furnishings, equipped kitchen, very comfortable!
*Duane was very hospitable and friendly!. Welcomed us with a bottle of wine, gave us great recommendations for restaurants etc.
*Beautiful setting, right on the lake front. Nice little beach area, although rocky. Bring your water shoes!
Small deck overlooking the water to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail hour.
*Great location! Good local restaurants without the long waits in Traverse City. Suttons Bay near by ~ cute little town with shops and good eats!

Cons:
*No washer. When linens are not furnished and you need to bring towels for beach and baths, you really miss not having a wash machine. If you spend lots of time at the beach, towels get wet and sandy. Who wants to go to a laundry mat on vacation!? Bring lots of towels.
*Not a big fan of well water. Smells like rotten eggs. We just bought bottled water and took quick showers.
*One window air conditioner in small bedroom. Doesn't cool the entire house. We brought along a small fan to use in the living room and it was fine.

The pros far outweigh the cons. If you stay here, you won't be disappointed!
