This rental was a great find. The pictures are dead on but don't really show how nice it is... I can say this place was really comfortable. Tim was a great owner to work with and kept us informed of any needs. The property is huge and so peaceful whether in the front of the back of the property. The house is really nice and comfortable with comfy furniture, tables and best place every is that huge covered deck. We spent most of our visit on that porch morning, day or night eating, laughing, quiet, or bug killing with our zappers. There are plenty of windows so even though it was hot the fans we brought and the ones we found there made it comfortable. Tim nicely provides lots of things like the t-paper, kleenex, soaps, trash bags, etc. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking stuff and we cooked as well as grilled a few times. Bedroom upstairs got a little warm but was doable. It had 4 beds. The main floor had a good size bathroom and bedroom. The washer and dryer was a godsend and the place had plenty of towels and fresh beddings. They even provided the soap. The downstairs had another bathroom and two bedrooms with two beds in each. Honestly it felt great because it was cooler down there but it is a little musty we did keep the dehumidifer going and that helps. We were comfortable. There are stairs so by end of week we all had a work out. The lake and dock was very nice. A nice stroll down to the lake but doable. The lake is not sandy bottomed. It isn't muck like but it has lots of roots from trees. The first time I was barefoot but wore water sandals after and I was fine. The kids and other adults said it didnt bother them much and dealt with it. This house is in a good location. It is within 10 to 15 mins of other towns to get a bite to eat or shop. Torch lake (very close by) has a beautiful lake and swimming there was awesome as well. It is a great loacation to run to Gaylord, Traverse City or Petoseky as well (all within about an hour or less). So many options. I can say that we had many places to go or just stay there and relax. Definately worth it. Nothing is ever perfect but all in all this suited us very well and we worked with anything else we needed. Just an FYI wireless is a bit tricky there. Everyone who had verizon was good to go, those of us with sprint were spotty at best but that was probably a good thing. Thanks Tim it was a good time and thank your cleaning crew they keep that place nice.
