Our family rented the home in August. The photos provided here do not do the property justice. Being on elevated land, the view of the water looking down makes the water seem somehow larger. Very nice. The sunsets were awesome. We were there at the right time to see the Perseid meteors at night. The skies were perfect and dark for star-viewing. I regretted not bringing a telescope up.

Certainly, there are a lot of stairs to get down to the beach and water, but we were all able to handle those. Even my energetic 4.5 yo girl tired on the way up. You do want to pace yourself. But, the guys took 2 mile jogs each morning and enjoyed the stress of tacking on a stair-descent and climb at the end of each jog.

The beach is fantastic to walk up and down and look for stones and watch sunsets. It's not a great swimming beach, due to all the medium sized, smooth, slippery rocks lining the bottom. The water is cold. If you walk out a ways, you'll reach some sand. We did take one long, body-healing swim there one day, but most of us did not return for swimming in that water after that. However, Petoskey State Park is not far away and has a great swimming experience, if you need that. That was fantastic.

There was plenty of room for the 11 of us. We brought an extra TV up, though we really didn't watch much while there. We had bonfires almost every night. It's very nice lounging outside at any time of day.

We played some tennis in Harbor Springs and walked around there and in Petoskey. If you stay here, you MUST visit Cross Village and eat at the Legg's Inn. Whether or not you like Polish food, it's just great food. I'm still thinking of the meal we had there. Everyone wanted to try everyone's else's food, and it was all good.

The homeowner was very nice and helpful before, during and after the stay.

wonderful week

we really enjoyed our stay--the house was VERY clean, and well equipped,especially for young children.
our favorite spots were the deck with great views and the screened porch--the mud room is FANTASTIC,we want one at home!!
we really didn't mind the steps to the water but the beach was not really workable for our family to swim, the children did enjoy hunting for shells--
we would have appreciated more overhead fans in the main rooms, it was very hot--also this is not a house for more than one family-the queen bedroom is really an office space off the living area
we found the lack of cell service ,satellite, and wi fi difficult and isolating with small children
the owners were very helpful, answered all questions-we loved the area and would like to return.

We had plenty of room to spread out in. House was nicely equipped with firewood, charcoal, paper products etc... Would recommend this home to anyone. The only drawback for us was the long staircase to the water. The view was breathtaking.
Anyone who stays here will not be dissapointed- We would stay here again in a second.
Thanks for a great house that made a great family vacation!

Dear Lisa & Chad
We loved your house. This is an amazing and spectacular view. We are spending one of our last weeks at your house after living almost two years in Michigan. We won't have this wildlife and nature back in Germany. We really appreciate staying in your house. It reminds us a bit of European style with the light colors and the light kitchen. It feels a little bit like home. You have great taste. Thanks for everything. This vacation makes it hard to move back to Germany.

Lisa & Chad,
Thank you so much for opening up your beautiful home to us! After our adventures each day, it was so nice to return to your comfortable and peaceful place!! The view is lovely. We treasured every sunset! And we layed on the lawn chairs late into the night watching the shooting stars.
We heard an owl, saw a mother deer with her two fawns (a few times) and enjoyed wildlife sightings in the area (wild turkey)!
Thank you for all the special touches you have added to make this such a special place to stay. Both families loved it!

Your house is so beautiful. It was the perfect spot for our family to spend the
week.
We enjoyed the view of the lake/sunset from the porch. It was also a perfect
spot for campfires and a badminton net.
Thank you so much!

This was our first vacation with our blended family. We all enjoyed the wide open spaces, beautiful environment, both inside and out.
We biked, walked, laughed a lot, sang by a campfire and just enjoyed each day to the fullest. We felt fortunate that the weather fully cooperated with all of our plans. Thanks for the great opportunity.

We enjoyed our stay at your beautiful cottage. The sunsets were amazing. The kids loved walking down to the beach and loved Pond Hill Farm. We had everything we needed and everyone fit comfortably in all the rooms. We caught a glimpse of two baby deer, hummingbirds, chipmunks, squirrels, and one porcupine. We spent time in Harbor Springs and Petoskey. We're so greatful to have had a wonderful vacation and the chance to create such wonderful memories.

Thank you so much for opening your home to our family. We were here for the
wedding of our son and though the trip was too quick, we loved being here
with this beautiful view and wonderful home.
