Girls weekend away!

  • 5 of 5
We never rented a private home before, always stayed in a hotel setting for our annual girls weekend away. This was a unbelievable setting. As we followed the owners into the property the first time, we wondered if we'd ever get to the home. It's a mile back in the forest, so beautiful and peaceful. The house was supplied with everything we needed... and more! The beds, linens, and furniture were all high end and very comfortable.
Between our golf games we all just relaxed. Some of us sat outdoors and had cocktails watching the wildlife. Others took long strolls through the well marked roads. We saw a lot of deer, birds and other wildlife.
This place would be perfect for small groups, and family events. The owners sent us a ton of ideas to do while we were in West Branch but we found ourselves just chilling out around the house and it's property. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We are already planning our girls getaway reunion here next year! Cathy,Carole,Jenn,Karen, Joy, Susan, Debbie,and Jennifer

We just stayed in one of the most peaceful, beauitful setting we have ever experienced!

  • 5 of 5
This home is really unbelievable, very contemporary, but very very warm and inviting. We had deer coming up to the front glass windows without even food out for them. The bird feeders were full of all kinds of different types. The dirt roads were no problem, even with the spring thaw happening. Everything in the home is high quality and very comfortable. The beds, linens, towels, and appliances were first class. The owners meet us at the gate and brought us in the full mile to the house. So Peaceful walking in the woods and hearing the birds and seeing all the deer. The owners are very into conservation and have food plots throughout the property for the wildlife to eat all year long. The suggestions for dinning and shopping were right on. Don't miss the Willow Tree Restaurant, if you by chance go before 5pm, on a weekday, ask for their $ 13.00/ dinner specials. It is pricey, but great food after 5pm. Even the smaller " downtown " suggestions were neat. The town is restored in a Victorian theme. Lots of unique shops for a small community. We will be sure to come back here when the golf season is in swing. We also drove up to Houghton Lake/ Higgins Lake and want to come back to go swimming when it is warmer. We cant think of anything the owners didn't provide to us! Thank you so much for sharing this setting with us. Kathryn and Frank
