Perfect, relaxing, peaceful retreat accomodating to multiple families at once

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our time on High Lake at Jim's home at the end of June/early July. The cottage provides great space and for our party, accomodated two separate families with children with 2 bedrooms on either side of the home, which created a nice separation and the ability to retreat to your part of the house. The inside has plenty of room and the outside where we spent most of our time was awesome with very large deck, sandy beach and dock. The lake is relaxing and very peaceful. We used the pontoon and it worked very well for our needs. Additionally, downtown Traverse City is just 7-8 miles away and an easy drive for back and forth as needed. I'd recommend this cottage to any single family or multiple families. We have a 2 year old and my in-laws had an 8 and 10 year olds. We all found it a great place to vacation. Not to mention, our landlord was extremely responsive and accomodating. Thanks Jim!

Family Cottage

  • 3 of 5
My family and I stayed at the cottage for Labor Day weekend. The location of the house is beautiful. The lake is not very big (we walked around it in the mornings) and very quiet. We found the beds uncomfortable. Some of the dishes in the cupboards were very dirty, which is of course not the owners fault.

Owner's Response: Dear Carmen
I'm sorry you ran into a few problems. It really bothers me because I want all my guests to have a marvelous time and I let you down. As for the beds, I just bought new mattresses in the last year so that problem really shocked me. As for the dirty dishes you talked about that was from a film from the water in the dishwasher but I fixed the problem by installing a big water softener. Sincerely, Jim S.

We had a great time staying at this property. We especially liked the outside beach area with sand and the paddle boat. We also enjoyed the fire pits. The top bedroom has 3 bunk beds so 6 kids can stay all together, which was perfect for our 2 families. My only complaint is that the water pressure for one of the showers is really low but the other shower worked well. There are lots of TVs and a washer dryer as well. Great location, 10 minutes from downtown Traverse City. Perfect place for families with kids.

Owner's Response: Stephanie I'm so happy that you and your family and friends had a great time at the Family Fun Retreat. Thank you so much for the nice review. I wish you would have told me about the one shower where the water doesn't have very strong pressure because I would have had a plumber come out and fix the problem. I've contacted him about the problem. I hope someday in the future you and your family will come back for another memorable vacation. Thanks again, Jim

Summer Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The cabin set-up and lay out if perfect for big families or groups of people. The bedrooms and bathrooms are the perfect size. The bunker that sleeps 6 was very nice and wide open. Every room in the cabin was nice and clean with all the amenities needed. The cabin was fully stocked and ready for our arrival. The location is also perfect with a grocery store close and a restaurant with fabulous pizza, I believe the establishment was called Peggos. The cabin sits just outside of down town Traverse City and only took a few minutes to get down town. We were all thoroughly please and look forward to renting from Jim again. Thank you Jim for a wonderful trip!

Family Fun Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I took our two toddlers up to this cabin for a week (July 21-26)
In total we had four couples, two toddlers and a newborn. There was generous amounts of room for everyone and privacy for the families. The property was very clean and nicely appropriated with all the essentials families would require (pots pans, towels). Internet and Cable were provided and were a necessity on the one rainy day we had. We spent most of our time down on the beach swimming and fishing with the kids. The convenience of the location to Traverse was a major selling point. It was a short drive into town and the grocery store.
Jim provides everything you need to enjoy your stay. He was flexible to our dates and phoned to check in on us during our stay to make sure everything was as expected. After the fact he even called to make sure we got our deposit check.
Thanks Jim, this was our young family’s first big vacation. Young families may find it difficult to get away on vacation but your Family Fun Retreat definitely made it easy.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this cottage. We had our whole family there with 6 kids ranging from 9 months to 13 years old and 6 adults.
The cottage is a great size for a family get together.
The internet was great! We had 7 IPads and 6 IPhones, a Nook and a PC. There was plenty of bandwidth. Naturally they weren't all in use at the same time.
The kids really enjoyed playing in the sand and swimming in the sandy beach.
We enjoyed s'mores by the fire.
We also enjoyed the large decks to sit out on to eat or just relax.
The grill was great to cook on.
We enjoyed taking rides on the pontoon boat.
