Great Family Vaca

The owners were great getting info to us in a timely manner and all there recommendations on the surrounding area including restaurants were excellent. There are a lot of stairs going to the beach and a spiral staircase in the house in case you have someone who doesn't do well with stairs. The house had three good sized bedrooms and a spacious master suite. Everything you need in way of cooking/eating utensils is in the house and there was plenty of books, outside chairs,beach toys, and games. The beach was perfect, very sandy with a little bit of small rocks, and very quiet when we were there, most days we were the only ones there. Beautiful settings and great location right in between Traverse, Elk Rapids,and Charlevoix. There is plenty to do in both Traverse and Charlevoix for both kids old and young, and the wineries on Traverse peninsula/ Old Mission were amazing.

My family enjoyed our week thoroughly. The home is beautifully cared for and well maintained. The owners are very thoughtful and helpful - we felt that they really wanted us to enjoy our week. Everything about our week exceeded expectations. All of us hope we will be able to return in the future.

Enter your email here. The best comment renters can make is"we hope to return next year." And we do! Our family (grown children) enjoyed the comfortable attractive furnishings and all the amenities including a kitchen equipped w/everything 'vacationing cooks' could desire.
Having vacationed at Lake Michigan cottages all of our lives we are used to steps to the beach and these are conveniently spaced between landings. Perched on a wooded bluff overlooking the lake the cottage woodside deck offers morning sunshine for breakfast while the front lakeside deck has afternoon breezes and sunsets. The spectacular sunsets are best viewed from the sandy beach which is also great for sunning, swimming and walking.

An amazing family vacation

We shared this home with close family friends and I have to admit it was one of the best vacations our family has had. It is a comfortable home with everything you need for a wonderful beach get-away. Secluded private beach, wonderful amenities, close to Traverse and Charlevoix for shopping and sight-seeing. We even did a day trip to Mackinac. If you run, the mornings were great for runs along the beach. The best part was that our kids loved it. Would definitely come back again. What you see is what you get plus more.
