Northern Michigan Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

My luxury single-family attached cottage is situated on the 14th hole of the Donald Ross Memorial Course inside the Boyne Highlands Resort and Country Club. Loyal to the classic elements of northern Michigan cottage architecture with rich cedar, mullioned windows and white accents, you are surrounded by a wooded locale with views of the golf course, mountain peaks and open skies.

Fully furnished with professional interior design that creates a unique upscale spa get-a-way feel including Jacuzzi tub, gas fireplace and the latest flat-panel displays in every room! Convenient main floor master suite and laundry combined with the spacious three bedrooms, two and a half baths and central air conditioning make this a perfect place for housing parties of up to six comfortably or a romantic size for couples. Being located inside a private resort with on-site manager, you will feel secure and confident that all amenities including the country club, golf course, ski resort, pool, tennis and fitness room are kept to the highest standards every day. The deck overlooks woodlands and golf course, the attached garage has room for two vehicles and all your golf and ski equipment.

Golf at Boyne Highlands is an experience in northern Michigan like none other! Breathtaking surroundings that envelope the course make it seem as though they naturally grew here. Match your skills against courses that test you to your limits. Take advantage of the many additional activities nearby such as Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark, Boyne Mountain's Solace Spa, horseback trail riding, waterfront dining and more snow sports than can be listed!

About Lynn Matson, Mary Wilson

A native of southern Michigan, I have always found northern Michigan to be the perfect trip for a serene get-a-way. I purchased the Ross Cottage in hopes that it would provide a comfortable, safe haven for my family and I, and it has proven itself to be that and more! We hope that those who stay in our cottage will appreciate that natural beauty of Northern Michigan as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to send an email regarding your condo in Harbor Springs that we were very lucky to have stayed at the past few days. It was an awesome place to feel at home and spend precious time with family. Each and every one of us loved what the condo had to offer and made us feel at home the entire time. You have a beautiful place in Harbor Springs. As we were pulling away, we all agreed we want to come back soon. Thank you so much for all the amenities you offer. It truly made a great memory that we will never forget.

Adult wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and were not only looking forward to our first getaway with out the kids but looking forward to spending it with friends and visiting Boyne for the first time. We were there to celebrate a friends wedding and that we did! The Ross Cottages were a perfect location and our particular condo was perfect for us. Beautifully decorated, so clean and very private, down at the end of the road.

Our contact, Mary, was so friendly, quick with her responses and extra accommodating. I work in the hotel industry and know all too well about guests wanting to check in early. I let her know that we would be around earlier than check in time and if the house just so happen to be ready, to let us know. She exceeding our expectations and we were able to have a few more hours to enjoy ourselves comfortably.

I can't say enough great things about our experience. We will be back for sure!

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the condo, with enough to do nearby to keep everyone from my eight-year-old son to my teenage daughters happy. The condo is comfortable and well equipped. Would love to return!

I hate the fact that I have to write this review- this is the first negative review I've ever written. This is also the first time we've checked-out early...

We arrived at midnight after a long drive. We were excited that we'd found this great place with great and modern furnishings. Check-in was extremely easy and convenient. After that things were not that great- short white dog hair everywhere, dust under the bed & behind headboard, white flaky stuff and spots on the leather couch, spots on the blinds in the living room, black hair in the candle holder in the bathroom, toilet had urine stains and so on... It was just the 2 of us so we didn't even bother to check the upstairs that much. I immediately cleaned up some of the things and since we were very tired we went to bed. This is when we noticed that there was something wrong with the mattress/boxspring (not sure exactly). I was basically sinking in- my side of the bed was maybe 4 inches lower than my husband's. We woke up with terrible back pain; never had to deal with something like this before. Tried sleeping in the other bedroom- not good either.

I can not tell if it is the day to day housekeeping or this place just needs some refreshing and new carpet.

We left early- after two sleepless nights. I e-mailed the owner/manager with a short explanation. She wanted to talk to us on the phone. I declined. She mentioned "restitution" and that she would "take care of us". So far, we have not received any amount back.

I feel both the owner and the manager are nice individuals, but their rental place needs more attention. You, the owner, should be able to tell what is wrong with your place, the first person to notice and the most critical. If you can not- then you shouldn't be in the rental business.

Owner's Response: Val, We have never had a poor review, and are saddened that you were so dissatisfied with your stay. Our Welcome Letter requests that you reach out in the first 24 hours if there are any issues or concerns. Upon receiving your note two nights into your stay, we made an attempt to reach out but upon refusal to discuss, left me a little confused. We do a very deep clean twice a year in addition to our regular cleaning before and after occupancy. We have had guests request the manufacturer of our mattresses as they found them amazingly comfortable and have added two brand new mattresses for this season. While I understand that we cannot please everyone, I immediately sent housekeeping a message for a redo for you while you were there, but you chose to depart early. Refusing to take my call left me somewhat perplexed as to why you would not let us take care of this for you before cutting your stay short. We are happy to refund the cleaning fee. Wish you the best.
