We love this house!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time vacationing in this house. We love it! It's very clean and updated with modern appliances. The yard is very large with fire-pit and grill, and we get occasional visitors (wild turkeys and deer). Denise is easy to get hold of and very accommodating.

Great location. Cozy house.

  • 5 of 5

The Lewis Lodge was a great place for my family to stay while we vacationed in Traverse City. Although we were not actually there much, it was clean, cozy, and an inviting place to stay for a week. I loved that it was not on a busy road, it was close to Long Lake, and it was on a nicely wooded lot. The owner was responsive and easy to work with. Would highly recommend this property.

Great little lodge for our weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was absolutely wonderful! House was very clean and tidy. Pictures do not do it justice for how cute it is. The only complaint I would have is the checkout time. Felt very rushed to leave by 10am SHARP or you will be charged, a cleaning fee and/or another nights stay. Cleaning service comes as soon as you are gone so I understand why the need to vacate on time. We just would have liked to not felt as rushed on the day of leaving such a homey little place. Check in isn't till 4pm so it would be nice if check out was more like 11am or noon. Great place and location, would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the response and sharing your concerns. Sorry you felt rushed to leave. We may have been able to change the (check out/check in) time if you would have reached out to us. The 10 am check out is important for stays when we have someone checking in on the same day as a check out. The cleaning service has run into situations where the tenants have not left on time and sometimes left the place in rough shape (thus the importance stressed with fines in the rental agreement). We like to give her ample time because she has the entire house to maintain and sometimes has to run buy new items. This time ensures the place is well kept. I hope this helps clarify things. Denise
