Memories To Last a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

The trip my family made to this home is one we will never forget! We loved the house- the decor was charming, bedrooms are cozy and comfortable, and watching the sunset on the porch each night as well as enjoying coffee there each morning made our vacation exceptional. Not to mention the experience of an outdoor shower facing the woods- genius idea! The lake views from this property are unbelievable- being able to walk down to the beach and having Lake Michigan an arm's length away was a treat. We also enjoyed going to the local wineries that were only 5-10 minutes from the property. Grand Traverse Bay rivals Napa Valley with the winery choices and scenic views. We cannot wait to spend another vacation at this amazing place! Thank you Dan for sharing your place with us and being a great host.

Our Second Stay Here!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to get this house for the entire month of August! It was our second stay in this wonderful home. The place is neat and clean with everything you need for a home away from home. It is a perfect beachfront location with a beautiful view. The front porch swing was my favorite spot for coffee in the morning and wine/sunsets in the evening! The other family favorite was the outdoor shower (loved it!) We enjoyed many activities right there on the peninsula, such as fishing, swimming, kayaking and winery tours (many wineries to choose from!) Dinner at The Jolly Pumpkin is a must! We took several trips into downtown Traverse City, as it is a great shopping area. We also took day trips to Sand Dunes, Mackinaw Island and two golf courses. All in all it was a fantastic get away! We look forward to another visit to both the area as well as this lovely home!

Wonderful Vacation, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends stayed at this home the last two weeks of August. We had a fantastic time. Visited wineries (lots), spent a day shopping in downtown TC,where we got some great bargains, went to the sand dunes and rented a boat for the day on beautiful Lake Michigan. The local restaurants were excellent, both formal and casual. We also picked blueberries and peaches at a very close farm and made some wonderful desserts. The home was beautiful, extremely clean and was nicer than we expected. It was great for when our granddaughters came -- settled in like it was home. The owner always got back to us in a timely fashion and gave us great tips on all the fun things we could do while we were there. I would recommend this property to anyone. We hope we can come back next year!

Great Michigan Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had always wanted to visit the Great Lakes region. We went to Mackinaw Island and then spent a week in the Traverse City area in this house. It was the perfect location for exploring this area. The house was very comfortable with great accommodations for our group of five adults and 2 small children. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset from the front porch, campfire on the beach across the road, and spreading out in the spacious house. Some reading, some napping, some watching tv. Space for everyone to get together or get away. Well equipped kitchen so we didn't have to eat out much. Loved the area and plan to come back. Knew it was a great trip cause kids didn't want to leave.

WOW!!! Great experience, highly recommended!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from our stay, what a wonderful home, and a great experience!! The website gives just a glimpse of the home, you need to experience the rest and you won't be disappointed!! The views were spectacular from any floor or room of the home!! Early one morning we watched a deer eating its breakfast in the backyard from the kitchen window, what a sight to see!!! Our daughter took naps on the porch swing, the breeze off the bay just cradled her asleep!!! We spent several days on the beach, had a couple of evening camp fires on the beach, just spent quality family time together. The home was wonderfully decorated and well furnished, something to meet the needs of everyone. The outside shower (genius idea) is great!!! Would definately saty again and recommend to others!!!

Fantastic House! Great location, peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

The listing does not do this home justice. It was better than what we could have hoped. It did not have a lot of pictures so we were not sure how the bedrooms would be. Once we got there we were pleasantly suprised to find a wonderful master bedroom with sitting area and bathroom. The other two bedroom were also very nice with plenty of space. We have a family of four and had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The house was very clean and well kept. We made our reservations within a month of our arrival time and Dan was very easy to deal with. He quickly returned calls and texts. I have family in the traverse city area and had them over, and they were equally impressed. I would definetly consider a return vacation and would reccomend this house to anyone. We enjoyed the private beach front with fire pit, Moomers ice cream and the state theatre in downtown.
