Home away from Home in Northern Lower Michigan

  • 5 of 5
This pet friendly cottage in Copemish, MI is absolutely wonderful. It is very clean and has all the comforts of home. The owners and renters clearly take great care of the home and surrounding acreage. The dog run area is great, and the ability to explore around the rest of acreage is fun and relaxing. We will always remember this place, and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. We have stayed in many up north sites, but this is by far, the cleanest. It is nice to be able to get away up North and have fun in the outdoors, but it is also nice to be able to relax in a clean comfortable environment at the end of the day.

I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone who would just love to get away for relaxation. It is so quiet and peacful, and if you feel like doing some sight seeing or shopping it is just a half hour away from Traverse City and Cadillac. Would definatly stay there again.

What a wonderful choice. I booked my time here as a getaway for myself and my three children 15, 11, 9. This was a most excellent choice. We would pack food for the day and travel to Sleeping Bears Dunes and go daily to the Frankfort beach. I could not have asked for a better place. We took along our dog who would stay in his kennel while we were gone and upon our return it was as if we were home. Evenings cooking on the Grill and playing with the dog outside was perfect. Everything my family needed to relax and be together was right here. I even had my best friend and her two children come up and sleeping 7 was not a problem at all.
I would recommend this place to all families. We walked around the small town in the evening and enjoyed the area !!!
Thank you George's Retreat, I will be scheduling more time there with my children and for myself. Great location at a wonderful affordable price.

Perfect little place to get away!

  • 5 of 5
George's Retreat was absolutley perfect for our family vacation to Michigan. The cottage is exactly as described, well suited for the four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) and our dogs. Everything about the rental process was quick and easy, and the owners provided all the information needed to reach the cottage and get inside well in advance of our date of arrival. We spent our week travelling to Traverse City and/or Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, using the cottage as "home base". Our dogs loved the hiking trails just across the road, and the location felt very private and serene.
The only thing I recommend is to bring bug spray! Our family is from SW Ohio, and while we are no strangers to mosquitoes, the ones we encountered upon arrival seemed much larger and more aggressive than anything we've experienced. Even using our max strength bug spray didn't seem to deter them. Due to the mosquitoes, we didn't really get to enjoy the back deck or the fire pit--it just wasn't worth the annoyance and the itchy bites received. I don't know if some kind of treatment can be done to the property to deplete the mosquito population, but this is really our only complaint from the trip (the kids were excited about having fires and smores upon arrival, so pretty disappointed that we couldn't really do this with them).
Overall, I would recommend George's Retreat to everyone looking to get away from it all for a while. We will definitely be returning for future stays, this has been one of our best experiences from HomeAway.

Always a great choice!

My husband and I have stayed at George's Hilltop Retreat I think 4 times now and every time we are inspired to return again! The cabin is very clean and comfortable and is equipped with everything we have ever needed for our stay. The deck out back is great for breakfast on summer mornings and we also made use of the fire pit at night. The location of the property is also very convenient - we spend much of our time out on Frankfort beach and further north wine touring the Leelanau Peninsula. We simply could not ask for a better stay for the price. Thanks Dusty for another wonderful vacation! :)
