Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the most amazing time at the Fieldstone Cottage. We were there for two weeks in July in the summer of 2012. The Fieldstone Cottage is just wonderful, its spacious enough for both friends and family yet still feels comfy and cozy. Jack and Nancy are the best hosts! They are so friendly, informative and helpful. You cannot beat the location as the cottage is centrally located right of off both Lake Michigan and Torch lake (two of the best lakes in the whole world)!! We cannot wait to go back to the Fieldstone cottage we had two of the best weeks of our lives up there which included our beautiful Lake Michigan wedding.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

My family and I just came back from a week at Fieldstone cottage and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Probably my greatest impression was how hospitable the owners were. On our first day there, we were given a basket of fresh vegetables from their garden, and then later on during the week Nancy gave us some peaches and some other boardgames to use while we were there.

The area is beautiful and we kept ourselves as busy as we wanted to, we visited Traverse City and Charlevoix and of course went to Torch Lake several times.

The cottage was just as described in the listing. We can't wait for our next visit!

Great place for a family

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is reasonably priced and has everything you need. We just returned from a week at Fieldstone Cottage and it was wonderful. Jack and Nancy are perfect hosts - friendly and available but not intrusive. The yard is huge and at night you can see every star in the universe (ok, I'm exaggerating but the view is fantastic).

It was extremely hot and humid while we were there (unusual for Northern Michigan) so we were glad we brought several fans to supplement the ones that are already there.

The kitchen is well outfitted with pots, pans, dishes, etc. There is even a hand mixer and a blender, along with loaf pans, cookie sheets and a corkscrew! The place was clean, in good condition, attractively decorated. Everything was as described, the owners provided good communication ahead of time, and Lake Michigan was straight down the road about a mile. The lake there was rocky so bring your water shoes!

There is a general store just a mile away and it has just about anything you can imagine - hardware, gas, beer, liquor, wine, bread, canned products, fresh produce, etc. Across from the store is a place with firewood - $10 got us enough wood for 5 fires.

As you can tell, I really enjoyed this place. It isn't for those who are expecting luxury accommodations, but for those who just want a good place to stay for a week, especially with a family (we had my brother's family and mine there), it is perfect.
