Northern Michigan Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Congratulations...You Saved the Best for Last! Please Try Us and Find out Why Our Guests Keep Coming Back.

Imagine staying in an almost 1,400 square foot condo in the middle of Western Michigan's northern four season's playground. We're just minutes from Lake Michigan, Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Charlevoix, and Boyne. And our condo has all the amenities for your in-condo stay; as well as, all the recreational, entertainment, activities, shopping, dining and sightseeing amenities when you're out and about.

Located in the renowned Trout Creek condo resort, if you never want to venture away from the complex, our condo is within 'easy' walking distance to everything, including: the onsite fitness center, indoor pool, outdoor pools, Jacuzzi's and sauna, hiking trails, basketball and volleyball courts, soccer field, picnic areas and grills, horseshoe pits, fishing ponds, children's play areas, and tennis courts, so bring your tennis rackets. Why not enjoy a libation on the deck while you watch your children or grandchildren throw Frisbee's or play soccer on the vast manicured lawn?

Our Up North escape features multiple TV's and DVD players throughout the living and sleeping quarters. We even have a VHS player if the kids brought along some of their favorite old movies. The unit comfortably sleeps up to nine people in the multiple bedrooms. The kitchen is completely stocked with tableware and utensils. Bring your favorite Keurig coffee flavors, we've supplied the coffee maker. We've provided free Wi-Fi throughout, a washer/dryer, full linens, one car garage to keep your vehicle out of the elements, comfortable patio furniture, and anything else you can imagine to make your experience with our condo one that will want you returning often.

And at the end of the day, when you've golfed at one of the top courses located conveniently nearby, or you've skied the slopes of Boyne, or biked the awesome bike paths, or shopped until you dropped, pour that last glass of wine and enjoy a soak in our two person Jacuzzi, just off the master bedroom.

Thanks for considering us for your next stay.

About Connie Bierlein

I grew up in Frankenmuth, MI, attended CMU and graduated from Northwood University with a BBA degree. I still reside in Frankenmuth with my husband and two sons.

Connie Bierlein purchased this condo in 2004

Why Connie Bierlein chose Northern Michigan

My brother had owned property in Harbor Springs, and we would come up every year. We decided to purchase this condo, because we loved the area.

What makes this condo unique

It has all the conveniences of home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect place to stay. Loved watching the kids play soccer off the deck! Although USA lost to Belgium. Played golf in great weather and enjoyed some peace and quiet. Your home is beautiful and had all the amenities anyone could ask for. Thank you for sharing!

Snowboarding/Skiing for 6!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home was filled with any/everything we could have needed for our stay. Instructions for anything that required even the slightest of explanation (water heater, fireplace, checkout etc.) were all either laid out neatly on paper in the apartment, or included via instructions on the app. The amenities were all amazing as well, especially for recovery from the busy days (hot tub, pool, and sauna). Super close to both Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob!!!! Thanks for your help in making the stay an amazing one.

Very Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family including kids from 14 y/o to 2 y/o had an absolute great time in this condo for our ski vacations. The property was cleaned and faithful to the description. There is a garage which could fit our 2 snowmobiles trailer, that was a good surprise so we did not have to park our trailer on the overflow parking lot. Kids enjoyed the pool too after a day of skiing. Because we have young children, we just moved the couch away from the mezzanine edge, to avoid any climbing and fall over the mezzanine!

I appreciated Connie's availability to answer all my questions before our stay. Thank you for welcoming us !

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

Definitely recommend, they get all they details (such as coffee, dishwasher detergent, paper towels), so we didn't have to worry about things like that on our vacation. Well stocked kitchen has all you might need to cook in. Plus, great location to skiing, and on-site access to State snowmobile trails. A+++

Great, spacious condo, great location

  • 4 of 5

This condo at Trout Creek is a great option for a family or two to spread out and relax after days of skiing. Proximity to Boyne Highlands is perfect and the kids spent the remaining waking hours in the pool. We had a great weekend and plan to return next year.

Connie was very responsive and helpful with questions and access. The condo was well maintained and clean upon arrival.

Beautiful and clean home in a wonderful part of Michigan

  • 5 of 5

We had two families stay in this condo during the holiday season. The layout was great in accomodating all of us. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need including a Keurig! The condo was extremely clean which is so important. The owner was very easy to work and quick to reply. There is a binder in the condo with many helpful answers, and suggestions during the stay, anything we could think of was included in it. We look forward to return trips to this Trout Creek Condo. You won't be disappointed.
