100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We had a great vacation at this house! Bob was great with responding quickly to our questions prior to arrival and during our stay. The house accommodated our 12 family members ranging in ages from 8 months old- 65 years old with plenty of room to sleep and shower. The kids caught fish in the pond behind the house daily and had a great time in the pool. We really enjoyed Deer Lake and Petoskey State Park for the beach and swimming. The house had plenty of room for the kids to run around and we enjoyed having bonfires. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again! :-)
Just wanted to thank your family again for staying at our home for your vacation week. Glad everyone enjoyed the home and all the area has to offer.
Feel free to come back anytime.

We had a lovely week at the Roundehause! It’s cozy and plenty of room for our group of 13!
We always look for a house where everyone can enjoy time together but also have private space as well. We want clean, cozy and fun things to do. This house gave us all of that and more. We had 4 separate families so 4 bathrooms worked out great, each family had their own. 7 bedrooms, 2 sleeping 3 kids each were great. My dad uses a cane so the stairs were a challenge so he stayed on the first floor where we served meals and played games each night. It was nice to have the upstairs living room as well where the kids watched movies and played video games separately from us. 2 refrigerators was a huge plus with the size of our group. We only went out to dinner once and cooked all our other meals. The kitchen was well stocked, we had everything we needed. All linens were provided and towels as well. A huge plus was the putting green right outside the back door. The boys loved it and used it every day. It was nice the owners had clubs and balls in the utility room. The fire pit and picnic tables were great. We had fires and s’mores each night as well as a few ghost stories. The pool pass was used a few times for the kids to swim. We took walks around the lake and spent time on the bridge looking at the fish and turtles. We used the Volley Ball court and played a lot of Corn Hole ( we brought that game with us) in the back yard. It was fun to sit out on the deck and watch the kids play! The house has internet service and TV but the best part was that everyone put their phones down and barely watched TV at all and spent time outside and enjoying each other. This is a rental house/cabin in the north and has imperfections but I loved how my kids said it was vintage and they loved it. The owner was responsive to every question and prompt with his answers. The only thing we would suggest people bring is sticks for toasting Marshmallows and games to play at night. We have been renting thru VRBO for about 9 years now and this house gets 5 stars from us. We will be back!
Thanks again for having your family stay at our vacation home this past week. We are glad everyone enjoyed the home and area .
Please feel free to come back in the future.

Not what was expected
We just rented this house for the week. The location of the house was good as it was not in a tourist area. The size of the house was good for our 16 family members. The house is unique being round. The 2 areas of living space worked out well. When we arrived, the grass needed mowed, and there were a lot of weeds all around the perimeter of the house. The house was clean for the most part but did have an odor when we first arrived. The house could definitely use some updates & quite a bit of maintenance. The tv's didn't always work & are quite old. The cable only included 13 channels. The 2 rolls of toilet paper in each bathroom was not enough for 16 people for 7 days. Only one key was provided which was an inconvenience as some days we all went in separate directions. The baseboard heat in the upstairs bedroom was coming apart. The upper level deck was nice but needed to be sanded, stained & sealed along with the picnic tables up there. The shower heads spray water all over making it hard to take a shower. The furniture was pretty worn & uncomfortable to sit on & hard to get out of. The upstairs recliner had stuffing coming out of arm. The handle on one of the toilets upstairs kept sticking. I feel it only fair to let you and future renters know about these issues. The location of the house was good & the pool area was nice.
Per your review all these issues will be addressed.
We do only have basic cable with selected channels.
A little disappointed
We rented this property for a group of relatives to visit the area that we used to vacation when we were younger and also celebrate a birthday. The size of the house worked out fine for our group (10) and the location to Petosky was convenient. However, the cleanliness and maintenance of the house was lacking. Also, we elected to pay the linen fee so the sheets and towels would be provided which they were, but in three of the bedrooms we had to put them on ourselves. If I would of known that I would of brought my own and saved money.The fireplace in the upper level did not work right, the smoke came out in the room instead of up so we could not use it. We could not get the WIFI to work, and it would be helpful with instructions on how to get the TV's operating.
