Great stay for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay. We have been taking a ski trip with several families for years and this is by far the best property we have stayed at. The space is incredible and comfortably accommodates multiple families. Wonderfully appointed and has everything you need. We look forward to returning.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded expectations! We consisted of two 76 year olds, 5 adults, and 6 children. There was PLENTY of space for all of us. We never felt we were encroaching on each other. The kitchen was beyond perfect for all to be in there preparing meals. The second refrigerator in the garage was most helpful for overflow. The laundry room on main floor was perfectly situated by the back door ( coming in from the hot tub), and we could change in the restroom adjacent and throw the wet stuff in the dryer. The outdoor screened in gazebo was great to play games in the evening w/o having to worry about mosquitoes. Speaking of games, the basement proved to be a popular spot for the kids. Arcade game packed with a variety of choices, billiard table, darts, and hoops.

The scenery outside is wonderful. Nicely wooded, and secluded, made for quiet walks/runs in the morning. The neighbors are beyond nice! Short driving distance to either Petoskey or Harbor Springs. Wanted to fit a day trip in to Mackinaw Island, which was doable at just 30 minute drive, however, we got caught up in so many other things, we fell short.

If you are looking for a peaceful retreat yet close to everything you need, look no further!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! Many happy memories to last a lifetime.

Beautiful home in a beautiful part of the country!

My wife and I shared this amazing property with 3 other couples to attend our friends wedding in Northern Michigan. The home is spectacular and was close to the daily activities/commitments we had thus making the trip extremely easy and pleasant. Highly recommend and would love to visit again in the future!

Definitely Retreat-worthy!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time our group of 15 women have rented a whole house vs. condo units for our annual Girls-Getaway. We have all given this a unanimous thumbs-up after spending a wonderful 4 days here. The bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms, deck and entertaining areas were spacious and comfortable. We went out for dinner one night, but otherwise did all of our cooking in the house. There are 2 refrigerators (1 also in the garage) and the kitchen was well-stocked with supplies; we also found many spices and some baking supplies available. There are 6 lawn chairs at the fire pit, so you may want to bring extras; deck seating space was adequate for all of us. The combination of woods and golf course was beautiful and a nice place to go for a walk. Plenty of activities in the area, but we enjoyed just spending time together in a peaceful setting. We felt we could have had a few more washcloths, dishtowels and toilet paper, but I still gave this a 5-star rating. There is a washing machine and dryer available though for keeping up on laundry needs. The caretaker, Jim, was very responsive to our questions and requests. A memorable time was had by all!

We absolutely loved our week in this wonderful home. Everything was perfect about it. The setting was truly magical from morning to night. It was so fun to meet the golfers every afternoon in the backyard and cheer them on. The outdoor spa was so refreshing and fire pit by night found us making smores with the grandchildren. It was a wonderful time with our family and the caretaker for the home was always Johnny on the spot if we needed anything. We will be back! The towns - Harbor Springs and Petosky were charming as well.
