Great escape!

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with our stay! We vacation often in the Traverse City area and we were pleasantly surprised by the reasonable price of the rental. While this may be a ski lodging location, it's very pleasant and quiet during the summer months, as we were the only ones in this particular set of buildings. Joyce stayed in contact with me from the first day that I booked. She sent me directions and pertinent information that was helpful! Inside of rental was very clean and welcoming. Furnished with linens and towels. The candy bars/snacks were a sweet touch that was appreciated! Will definitely stay again!

Snowboarding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were looking for a convenient slope side or similar rental and this condo was perfect. The owner was very responsive and accommodating. The information packet that was sent included everything we needed to know before our stay and helpful maps of the area. The condo was very clean and cozy, just a short walk to the lifts and close enough that we could take little breaks throughout the day. We had zero complaints and would definitely stay here again.

Great Location, Wonderful Owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister in-law and brother in-law rented this condo for a ski weekend. The location was as described and very convenient. We needed our cars for nothing once we arrived. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed for your stay. All that was required from us was our clothes and ski equipment. The owner was very responsive and wonderful to work with. They have really thought of everything when if comes to stocking the condo. From movies, to games and they even had the little zip ties in the drawer for your lift tickets. I would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

Condo Rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were able to get away for a long weekend and decided to give this condo a try. Arriving on Thursday, in the off-peak season, it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The owner offered great directions on how to get there, along with pictures.

The room was perfect for what we needed. It was extremely clean with all the amenities we could ever need. Most of the facilities were closed due to the off-season, but the outdoor pool was still open. We were also able to use the indoor pool at one of the other condos within this affiliation. That worked out well.

Even though it was the off-season, there was still plenty to see and do in this area. We even made it up to Old Mission Point to see the Lighthouse and General Store.

The location made it great for day trips to Petosky and Travers City or just seeing some of the smaller local towns.

We caught some live music at the local brewery (Shorts) and had a great breakfast in Traverse City (Happy Hog Restaurant).

I could tell that this condo is THE PLACE to be in the winter. With chair lifts literally right outside your door. During the summer, there are golf courses and parks all across the area to enjoy.

We will definitely look to stay here again if (when) we come to visit!

Thanks for letting us share in your vacation home.
