When this darling cottage went up for sale across the street from us, we couldn't resist. It has become an extremely special part of us in the very short time we've owned it and in just one summer has given us glorious memories. We are over the moon with the new addition to our family brand house.

John Thomason purchased this cottage in 2011

Swinging on the porch swing in the backyard of the cottage, john said to me, 'this is really like its own little island,' and it is. It is quiet, peaceful... Serene. The backyard abuts a park belonging to the church on the street behind, and we especially love the sound of the church bells, crisp and rich.

The screened porch in front is wonderful for watching the world go by (though we do live on a very quiet street). The house is precious ~ cozy and spacious, and the backyard is large enough for grilling, the fire pit, swinging, and playing several yard games, all at the same time! We provide croquet, ladder ball, and a bocce ball set, as well as several toys/games. The yard is surrounded by trees with several perennials, herbs, and your very own tomato plant.

This is my second stay at the Brand House and the owners and house are just great! I usually come down to stay because of business and it's so nice to come back to such wonderful accommodations. I have an older dog with special needs that needs to travel with me at times and they have been so accommodating with their pet policy. The house is very clean, it's decorated with taste (while being very homey), the neighborhood is quiet (with a cool church out back with church bells)....one couldn't ask for more. Thanks for another great stay, I'm sure I'll be back!

My friends and I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely cottage for a girls' getaway, and found it to be every bit as delightful as pictured. The cottage was very clean, and well equipped for all of our cooking needs. If there is anything you forget (condiments for us), the nearby market has it all.
The cottage is quiet and private, yet conveniently located for day trips to Leelanau or Old Mission Peninsula, Traverse City, or head north to Charlevoix, Petosky and Harbor Springs. Opportunities abound to taste the wonderful wines and craft beers which are earning well-deserved recognition for northern Michigan. It was a bit cold for the nearby beach, but enjoyable to walk around Elk Rapids, and peruse the quaint shops downtown. Or, head toward Torch Lake for great shopping in Alden.
It was such a pleasure to meet Sally and John, the owners, who left fresh flowers from their garden, making us feel truly welcome. We enjoyed the beautiful flowers all around the cottage, too, waiting to see what would bloom next. In each detail it was apparent that the owners work hard behind the scenes to make sure that their guests have the best possible vacation experience. We would not only recommend this cottage, but hope to make a return visit in the future.
