Beautiful Home and View, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The home here is beautiful, at a great location and with perfect layout for a larger group. We had a great vacation up north and Paul's (the manager) responsiveness and friendliness made it even more enjoyable. The home is very clean and spacious. It's close enough to Traverse City to be convenient, but far enough from the noise and crowd to be peaceful. The grocery store and a K-Mart are just a few minutes away. The beach is outstanding. Great campfires! I highly recommend staying here.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time at the house, and while the weather could have been a little warmer, it really wasn't an issue because there's so much to do in the Traverse City area! If we're up that way again, we will certainly look to this house as our first option. You were extremely easy to work with and always prompt with your replies. Thank you!

Incredible place!

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay here in the fall of 2015 and it was perfect. Super clean, comfortable and well equipped. The beach is wonderful and the location of the home is very convenient. Owner Paul is fantastic to work with and was very accommodating. This will definitely be our number one choice for places to stay in the Traverse City area from now on!

Family Vacation/Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We're back from our fantastic vacation/reunion at your wonderful beach house. The accommodations were great, the weather was fair to perfect, and our get-together was spirited and memory making. We made full use of the beach and water sports, and even rented paddle boards one day. So we're all a poorer version of very happy campers at this point! I hope your cleaning staff found the house in good shape. We washed all the towels, half of the sheets, took out the garbage, and cleaned as best we could. So thank you very much for making your part of Pure Michigan available to us, I can't say enough superlatives about it.

AWESOME LAKE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing my entire family of 18 to stay in your wonderful lake house. It was nice to rent a vacation home that is well taken care of and up to date. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep. The beach and fire pit were awesome. Our 8 grandkids ages 1-17 could have stayed on that beach all day and night and never have gone anywhere with the rest of us and been perfectly content. My son had a friend and his family visit us while we were there and he was so impressed with the place he is thinking of renting it too.

We love Traverse City, it is beautiful. There is so much to experience. There are excellent restaurants, wineries, breweries, Torch Lake, Leelanau Peninsula, the Dunes, canoeing down the Platt River, and beautiful Lake Michigan. Fourth of July in the evening at the lake house was really fun on the beach. We didn't need to go to Traverse City to see the fireworks as the neighbors provided us with a spectacular display along with being able to see fireworks on the opposite peninsula.

The owner, Paul, is an great guy to work with. Questions, emails, phone calls always answered promptly. I would recommend this lake house to all. I would rent it again in a minute if the occasion arose.

Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality!!
