My sisters and I plan a 3 day weekend get away every year and this year we stayed at Lin's house in Interlochen. The house is beautifully decorated! It is cozy and warm and had that cheery cottage-like feel to it. It is extremely spacious! We loved it for so many reasons. There are 3 bedrooms on the main floor so 3 of my sisters had their own rooms. The downstairs is like having another little apartment. There was another bedroom down there with a king bed where me and my other sister slept with more than enough room for us to spread out. Unfortunately it pretty much rained all weekend otherwise we would have totally utilized the back deck and the fire pit. There are 2 big bathrooms which was a huge plus with 5 woman having to get ready in the morning. Everything in the house was spotless and extremely clean. The pictures that Lin has posted on this site are exactly what you get with the exception that the house is bigger than what it looks like in the pictures. Being the girls that we are...we spent our days in Traverse City and Sutton's Bay shopping till we dropped. We wanted to go to Glen Arbor and Fishtown, but ran out of time. The first night we went to Hofbrau for dinner which was about 10 minutes from the house. Loved it there!! The food and drinks were great! Loved the atmosphere there and we had a fantastic waiter....his name was Ray! We were laughing and being goofy and he was playing right along with us We had a blast! We never made it to Bud's restaurant, but heard that they were really good too!
Lin was a complete joy to work with! She made sure that if there were any problems or if we needed anything that we had her number and knew that we could get ahold of her. She made a point to call me to make sure that we got there and that everything was to our liking. I know now why her house was so cheery and uplifting, that is Lin! Extremely helpful, wants nothing more than for you to have a great time at her place, she is a joy to talk to! She was very helpful with any questions I had and when I asked her about things to do she was more than happy to give me suggestions and ideas.
My sisters and I thank you so much Lin for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home, for being so generous and understanding of our arrival and departure and for being so wonderful with our stay there. We've been renting homes from Homeaway for several years now and this was definitely one of our BEST experiences! We would LOVE to come back and stay again!
