Why Tony Jacobs chose Northern Michigan

Quite frankly, we were a bit disappointed when we first moved to Michigan from Anchorage, AK. Our active lifestyle in Alaska, became difficult to maintain when we no longer had the mountains to climb or the miles of groomed ski trails to traverse. An anniversary trip to Traverse City (without the children) changed our minds about Michigan and we began looking for vacation rental property. It took us about 7 months, but we believe we found the perfect place.

Great for ladies getaway up north!

  • 5 of 5

This house provided a great location for ladies getaway up north. The kitchen was very well appointed and we loved the fact that we all had our own space! May seem like a small thing but to be provided paper supply and soap products in kitchen and bathrooms was a nice touch!

There is a small grocery store within walking distance and the house was in easy to find location! We would highly recommend and would definitely book again! Thanks, Tony, you were very easy to work with! Thanks for sharing your place with us.

This place was clean and in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home with ample space for our family of 8! The beds are comfortable and the room sizes worked out well. The teens in our group loved the ping pong table and air hockey table. It was wonderful to be able to use the 2 kayaks. All you have to do is walk them across the road to the beach and dock access. The location was awesome since we were approximately 30 mins or less from any area attractions. I highly recommend this place.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, my family & I were very pleased with this rental. The location was great - close walk to the beach (right across the street) and only 10-15 minutes to downtown TC. Enough space in the rental for everyone and having 3 separate bathrooms was great.

Great place for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at the Halcyon house.

We had 5 adults and 3 kids under age 3. We were able to have each kid in their own room which was great for them.

There are 2 living rooms plus the game room in the basement so plenty of space to spread out. There are also 2 washer/dryers so we were easily able to stay ahead of the laundry!

The public beach across the street is very nice for young kids - shallow and full of families.

Overall the accommodations were comfortable and pleasant. We would gladly return next year.

We were looking for a house to hold many family members for a wedding in Traverse City. We are so happy we found this home. It was perfect for our needs. Lots of room. The game room in the basement was a big hit with the family. The bedrooms are big and the beds are comfortable. The back yard was great for hanging out and for making s'mores. The store next door is very nice and has good pizza. Nice and clean. Tony was great to work with. Very easy drive to Traverse City, Beach, Wineries, and Shopping. We had a great time. If you are looking for a great place to stay for a nice vacation. Look no further. This is the place.
