Me and my family loved it. Very relaxing the house was beautiful. The beach was near by walking or driving distance. My grandkids loved the beach a little rocky, but overall it was a great vacation and we will stay at the location again!!

Great rental property

  • 5 of 5

We actually stayed at this property in July 2014, but the calendar doesn't go back that far.

The location is incredible, with a large private back yard, fire pit and outdoor grill. It is a short walk to a great beach that we hardly ever shared with others. The kitchen was well equipped and allowed us to make whatever we wanted during our stay, including slow cooker pulled pork, grilled steaks, oven roasted potatoes, etc. When we stayed there, surround sound had recently been installed in the living room which made for nice afternoons listening to iPods/Pandora while relaxing. Nearby Frankfort is a picturesque small town with standard grocery store and a brewery/small restaurant scene.

We really enjoyed staying here for a weekend away for our group of 8 around 25 y.o in age. Candy was great. My only warning is that it is "cozy" sleeping eight, but it was as advertised.

Wonderful property with stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect! Clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated inside and out. The house and yard are much more stunning in real life than the pictures. Our family spent a lot of time outdoors enjoying the big yard, view of the Arcadia marsh and watching deer (a doe and her fawn visited every evening!) The owner is very pleasant and I would definitely rent this home again.

Absolutely perfect for our stay in Arcadia!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely gorgeous home in a peaceful setting. We were truly amazed at all aspects of the house: it was clean, beautiful decorated and spacious. The yard was gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting and relaxing in all areas of the home and grounds. There was a ton of space for our group which included 4 adults and 2 children. The owner supplied all the necessities and even left a bottle of wine. She was so sweet in person as well. I would 100% recommend her beautiful home to anyone looking to visit Arcadia. We hope to come back!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home on a breathtaking piece of property. My family, including two children and my mother-in-law, stayed here for a week in the summer. There was so much to do in the area, but the house and property were so nice, we wanted to spend a lot of time there. Pictures just don't do this home justice and Candy was a pleasure to do business with. The beach was private, we were usually the only ones there.

located in one the the best kept secrets along Lake Michigan. Great hikes along the shoreline and bluffs. my favorite is to just comb the beach for treasures and then relax at the house with a huge fire and watch the wildlife come into the yard.

Golfing canoeing hiking mountain biking great eats and many more things to do within 15 miles or less.

traverse city is an hour away. there is a casino within 15 min.
