Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for two nights with friends, 4 adults, 3 kids, and were very pleased with the house and accommodations. Plenty of beds and room to relax in. Large kitchen was great and had everything we needed to cook one of our dinners for our hungry crew of skiers. Had dinner our first night at Shorts Brewery in Bellaire, which was really good (beer and food) and a short drive away. Loved the location in the woods, very pretty and felt secluded. Gloria (owner) was very nice and easy to work with in getting everything arranged. No problems at all with the house or the reservation. Would also be a great setting in the summer. Outdoor fire pit area looked like a great place to hang out. Would definitely stay here again when we ski at Schuss.

We just got back...couple days ago from a beautiful house and property up north. We were one family of 4 adults an one child. The house was huge for the 5 of us, plenty of room. We enjoyed the fire pit outside and the fireplace inside with a glass of wine in our hands. We went skiing and meeting friends around the area. Everything in the house was like home, we didn't miss anything. The garage was big enough for my Escalade and my son's truck.

A little bit tricky to find the address but once you find it, it's easy.

We will certainly come back next season and maybe in the summer time.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We were so comfortable here that we hated to leave! We went up with another couple for a weekend away. The house was easy to live in and had everything we could have needed. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, playing cards at the table, relaxing on the comfy couches, and admiring the beautiful view outside. Not too far of a drive to Traverse City or Charlevoix and Petoskey. We had a delightfully relaxing weekend and hope to return again.

Excellent house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. My husband and I went with another couple to stay for a ski weekend. The house is beautiful. There was wine and cheese/crackers welcoming us. There was shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc for us. It is a very short drive to Shanty creek resort. Thank you so much for everything, we hope to be back next year.
