Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ed,

We truly enjoyed your home. Thank you so much for sharing it. The ski conditions were the best we have ever seen in December. Everyone loved all the snow. The kids enjoyed exploring your property and played outside for hours. The fire pit was great, we made a nice fire and enjoyed all that northern Michigan had to offer. We will definitely be coming back for our next stay.

Excellent Stay...Great accommodations...Helpful Host

  • 5 of 5

Had a group of 20 guys up north for a bachelor party and golf. This property was perfect for our group. Plenty of space to hang outside and inside. Very private. Close to Crystal Mountain for golf. Gas station less than a mile down the road for everything needed. The host, Ed, was always available and helpful. Even helped us order the UFC fights via Pay-Per-View. Highly recommend this place to any group.

Ideally located, great for large groups, close to everything Pure Michigan has to offer.

  • 4 of 5

It was a perfect fit for a family vacation. There were 19 of us, myself, children, and grandchildren and room for all. I loved cooking outdoors, the kids being able to ride their bikes and feel we had enough room and privacy. We were close to so much! The families got passes to Crystal mountain and used the pool daily (awesome pool) and alpine slide. It was only a short drive to kayak the Platte, hike Sleeping Bear Dunes, pick cherries in Leland, sip coffee in Glen Arbor and enjoy the beach and piers in Frankfort. A memorable vacation. Not a 5 star hotel but a definite 4 star, which is just what we wanted. Would rent again for sure.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just right for our family vacation. We had 5 couples, 2 teenagers and 2 children. Every couple and the smaller kids had a bedroom with a door for privacy and a comfortable bed. The teenagers slept in the loft beds, which worked out fine. The weather was warm so we had the fans going during the night which helped. An addition of a screen door on the 2 loft balconies would have helped cool down the upstairs even better. The 2 kitchens and living rooms allowed the family to spread out and made meal preparation easy. We loved the fire pit and spent every evening by the fire! The house was clean with a couple exceptions, but with a phone call to the owner, these were rectified right away. The location was perfect. It was close enough to everything we needed and wanted to do. We spent time at Crystal Mountain Resort, Traverse City, Frankfort, Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Glen Arbor, Leland, and Northport (shopping, eating, swimming at the beaches, mountain biking, touring). Must try Moomer's ice cream at the dairy farm just southwest of Traverse City. Geno and his staff at Geno's Sports Bar and Grill and the employees at the Mobil Station convenience store might know us by name now! Haha! Fun times! I would recommend this property. Thank you!

Great place for our family to gather!

  • 4 of 5

Great place for our family reunion. We appreciated having 2 living rooms and 2 kitchens. Convenient location with a 15-20 minute drive to things to do in the towns along the lake shore, 45 minutes to Travis City, yet a beautiful and peaceful setting for the cabin.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is located minutes from golf at crystal mountain and ~20 minutes from Arcadia bluffs. It slept 12 without an issue. An added bonus is there are 2 full kitchens which are both updated and well appointed. There are 2 family rooms as well. Ed, the owner, was very accommodating!

Private but close to Crystal and Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

The house is set up great for large groups and the privacy fantastic! We had 15 guys and had plenty of room. We had enough room outdoors to play corn hole, canjam and used the basket ball hoop to play a few games of pig. We also had enough privacy to have a fire and play music without bothering anyone. It was fantastic! I would go back in a heartbeat!

Thanks Edward
