Ultimate Peace and Quiet, yet close to the action
My husband and I and our two Miniature Schnauzers stayed at the Lodge for 5 days.in September. It was a wonderful experience for all of us. The peace and quiet were palpable--we found ourselves whispering when we went outside! The Lodge has the perfect blend of rustic log cabin and modern amenities. We wanted for nothing! The pictures provided are only a hint of what this property has to offer. We enjoyed the proximity of Traverse City and all that it has to offer, also. We ate at Boone's Long Lake Inn and it was a great experience. The portions are huge, so be prepared to bring half of your dinners "home". We toured the Old Mission Peninsula and did the wine tours. We found the Chateau Grand Traverse to be the friendliest and most helpful of the wineries we visited. They were most gracious. We had hoped to go out on the Tall Ship Manitou, but were informed that it was past the season for the two-hour tours--only 4-day overnighters available. Be sure to stop at the Moomers Ice Cream store for a fabulous treat. They have a large variety of flavors and toppings. Stop at the Grand Traverse Pie Company in TC for the best pies. I had the Lakeshore Berry pie which had apples, strawberries, bluberries, and raspberries in it. So delicious! If you are a lighthouse fan, be sure to stop at the Point Betsie Light on the way to Sleeping Bear Dunes State Park, and the Old Mission Light at the end of the Mission Peninsula. Our stay at the Lodge was the first time we have rented a private property for a vacation. We're spoiled now by the hominess, cleanliness, and ambience of this Lodge. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone for a vacation experience they will not forget. Thanks to the owners for sharing this great home.
