Reviewer Comments:

Stayed at this house hoping we might want to buy it. Many of the windows don't open, lights don't work, large spaces but they don't show off the lake. This house hasn't been loved in a long time. In its favor--there are solid steps down to the the beach. Lake Michigan and Christmas Cove are gorgeous.

Reviewer Comments:

Great set-up for 3 50ish couples from MI, NC, SC. The layout is unusual (not unlike many lakeside homes that are homes and not McMansions), but worked wonderfully. Lots of privacy for each couple, lots of room for hanging together, lovely large dining room for meals. And of course the "front yard" is Lake Michigan!!!! Wonderful days and nights on the deck, beach walking and swimming from sun-up until way past sundown. Fabulous location, great host communication, an incredibly easy renting experience for such a spectacular spot. All around a wonderful spot for a great vacation.

Reviewer Comments:

There are 3 couples in my family. We need 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a good beach and access to the things that make a Michigan vacation magical. Windsong is beautiful, well-stocked and has a million-dollar view. Everyone says we had our best vacation every. The property is so close to Cathead Bay (another favorite), Northport, Leland, Traverse City and many wonderful wineries, stores, bistros, beaches, parks, Sleeping Bear, the Platte River and so much more. I would recommend it and we would book it again.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time at the Windsong house in Northport. The house was cozy and had a tremendous view. I wish we could have stayed longer. Our favorite part is that house is just 90 or so steps from fabulous Petoskey rock hunting. There were a couple of things that need fixing (ex. upstairs bedroom door handle) but overall we were quite pleased with the accommodations. Only about 6-8 minutes from the town of Northport.

Reviewer Comments:

Small group of friends stayed 3 nights to catch the fall colors in Leelanau, do some cycling and visit some wineries. Location was beautiful and remote. Narrow beach at bottom of 71 steps and wooden catwalk over the wooded dunes. The lake view was gorgeous. The house was comfortable and clean. The kitchen had all the hardware needed for cooking though very few staples available like spices or cooking oil. Bring everything you need. Charcoal grill out back worked well, but BYO charcoal. Enjoy.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us. We do not supply staple items although oftentimes things get left behind from previous guest's. As you might imagine everyone has a different idea on what should be there. We do recommend items to bring in our paperwork.

Reviewer Comments:

Minus a few little problems, we really enjoyed our stay here. There were no paper towels (at all), no kitchen towels (at all), and it would have been nice to have a couple of games, decks of cards to use while hanging out. Also none of us could get a phone signal and there was no land line phone, that could have been a problem if we needed to use one.
