On the water, what a view
Our first trip to Michigan exceeded our expectations. Duane provided all the information we needed ahead of time. The cottage is homey with plenty of room and necessities. When we weren’t out and about we were relaxing on the deck in comfy chairs feet from the water. The only thing you hear is the lapping of the water. We spent 7 nights and still didn’t get to do everything we wanted to. Not because of distance to activities (the cottage is in a central location between TC and Suttons bay) but because we often enjoyed the deck late into the morning and returned to relax by the water early evening. We hope to return to enjoy more the area has to offer and will definitely stay here again.
Thank you very much for your nice review. We are very pleased that you had a great vacation.
Cozy cottage on the lake
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. We were pleasantly surprised by all the nice finishes / little things that the owner had in the cabin that made our stay very enjoyable. Cottage was very clean and met our needs perfectly.
Ideal location to everything and very safe.
We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
Lovely place and location.
The cottage was nicely furnished, very clean, and comfortable. The view from the living room of the lake is lovely. It is just a short drive into Sutton Bay's, which is a charming little town. I would certainly stay here again.
Thanks for your nice review.
A beautiful and peaceful little cottage!
We stayed here for my best friends bachelorette weekend. Duane was very accommodating and understanding that we had so many girls coming from all over (only two parking spots at the house). The water is really high this year so there's no beach but the sitting on the deck makes you feel like youre on a boat, its a great place for morning coffee! The cottage is a perfect location between Suttons Bay and a very short drive into Traverse City, while still feeling away from it all.
Wine tasting with family
My wife and I frequent Traverse City every year to visit wineries and the views. This trip, we took our 10 month old and her parents to take in the sights. This property was perfectly located for everything we needed. Just 15 minutes to downtown TC, 5 minutes from Sutton's Bay, and many wineries. The house was perfectly cleaned and maintained. It was very easy to "check in and check out" with the property owner. The property owner was very swift to respond to any questions and the home provided everything we needed during our stay. The views from the back deck were absolutely amazing. The one drawback we saw with the house, was the lack of lighting. Most homes/ guest homes will have switch lighting so you don't have to walk through a dark room to turn on a lamp. Very minor detail, but something you notice when going to bed/ watching tv late.
We would definitely stay in this home again without question. I recommend this to anyone looking to get a property on the water and near everything you need!
Thank you for your nice review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay. We will address your lighting comment. The last renters must have switched the bedroom lamps that were controlled by the switches as you enter the rooms. We will make sure that is something that is checked from now on.
