  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this home away from home! The owners are wonderful, and they are there for you from the start! We stayed for our daughters wedding and finished our stay as a family vacation, we hadn't had one for a long time. We felt at home right away...and such a perfect location! We enjoyed watching the mama deer pass thru with her twin fawns and listening to song birds while we enjoyed our morning coffee! Lots of room, super clean and can't wait to return! Please stay at this home you will love it!

Excellent accomodations and location

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group, but there was never a feeling of being in a tight space in this home. With an upstairs and downstairs gathering area, we could separate as well as choose one area or anther for variety throughout our stay. The outside was large with beautiful country scenery. We enjoyed playing volleyball, throwing the ball around, sitting around the fire pit, and even playing horseshoes (byo). Proximity to town was a straight shot down Mitchell. Wineries, restaurants, breweries were plentiful. Petoskey State Park Beach was great and was complimented by many choices of nearby lakes. A truly wonderful family summer vacation spot!

The ideal place for a big family looking for fun and value!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Petoskey for a family wedding and wanted to all stay together rather than in individual (expensive!) hotel rooms. This house was the perfect choice: close enough to town to be very convenient, yet just far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. Clean and comfy and extremely well supplied with WAY more than the basic starter supplies. The kids loved watching the farmer across the street cut and bale his hay (better than TV...) and we adults loved being able to gaze out at the faraway bay, where the sun didn't set until after 10:00. Perfect!!!

Owner's Response: Dear guest, Thank you for a very nice review. We are so glad the wedding went well and the rain held off. So glad you enjoyed the views and fire pit. And the farming educational program! We never know how our guest will feel about the farmers in our small neighborhood. So nice for the kids to see how hard they work. We hope to see you again!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 adults and 5 small children stay Memorial Day weekend as we came up for a wedding. The house was everything we expected and more! They have a volleyball court and fire pit outside that they supply wood for! We were able to use the big gas grill to make dinner one night. The kitchen came stocked with silverware, plates and pots and pans. The house was very clean and accommodating. Mardele made the booking process very easy. We had a great time at this house and I would definitely use it again for a future visit to Petosky.

Northern Michigan Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 9 adults stay here over night on a ski-trip. Short drive to Boyne Highlands. House was very nice and slept everyone comfortably. Nice fire pit outside with outdoor chairs provided (in garage). The stars were amazing as we sat around the fire. Not many neighbors around. Mardelle was very kind & organized and made the booking process simple. Highly recommended. Hope to come back again when it's warmer to play some volleyball.

Way beyond my expectation!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a hidden gem, I am so glad I found it! It's very clean, and has almost everything you will need. There is a big gas grill, a volleyball court, and a fire pit in the backyard. And the owner provides the firewood. Sitting around the fire and toasting some marshmallow is definitely a highlight of the stay. Bills farm market is like less than 1 mile away, and it's less than 10 min's drive to the downtown area and the lake.
