Reviewer Comments:
North Porch is a lovely house and the online photos were accurate. The lakeside lawn is large, and picture-perfect. The house is well equipped with games and sports equipment as well as cooking utensils. Furniture is in good condition. Could use more/matching drinking and wine glasses. The house has too many reminders of the owner's presence though. Rental houses should feel less like you are borrowing the owner's home and more like you are checking into a place just for you.

Our stay was seriously marred by the failure of Visit Up North (the rental agent) to prepare the house to enter the rental market. They had sent a cleaner who changed sheets and towels but did no other cleaning and the agent clearly had not inspected the property prior to accepting guests. We are very experienced house renters and this is the first time we have ever written a negative review, but the house was filthy; toilets rims hadn't been touched in years, dust bunnies were thriving and spilling out from under all the furniture. You cold feel and hear the dirt under your feet as you walked. Oh, and the bathrooms had hair stuck to the shower walls and visible pubic hair on the floors. We are not clean freaks by any means, but this was really gross.

Visit Up North was not able to get cleaning staff back out to actually clean until dinnertime the day after we arrived.

Their maintenance manager assured us that they normally fully inspect new properties before the first guest arrives but couldn't tell us why this house was so filthy. We paid about $700/night for this place but no compensation was offered to address their failure to deliver an acceptable stay or the hassle and numerous calls we had to deal with to get them to make it ready.

This house has the potential to be a great rental, but I would prefer to rent from a better run company.

Reviewer Comments:
Overall we were very pleased with our stay at North Porch. However we were disappointed that there wasn't a dock or cable as these were included in the property description. We were very disappointed that Visit Up North did not get back to us as they said they would when we called them about this. In the past, this company had always been very responsive. The property itself was very comfortable and the tree house was a hit! We would have been able to enjoy the water more if there had been easier access.

Reviewer Comments:
North Porch is a beautiful, well appointed vacation home.
The beautiful screened-in porch and large yard, allow you to enjoy Long Lake with a nice feeling of privacy.
My family of 5 (3 teenagers) thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The large kitchen is very comfortable for meal preperation and dining.
A billiard table kept my kids busy when they were not outside.
Easy access to downtown Traverse City. Groceries available in near-by Interlochen.
This home is a perfect vacation destination and we hope to return.
