Reviewer Comments:

Nice clean house with ample room for two families! Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, knives - even an electric griddle for pancakes and a popcorn popper! Beach was small but nice, and the stony coast was full of Petoskey stones and small fossils for the kids to find! Location was perfect, less than 1/2 hour to Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes. ACCESSABILITY NOTE: LOTS OF STAIRS!!! One thing to keep in mind if you have small children is there are stairs to go upstairs and from the deck to the beach - so don't forget your portable baby gate like we did. : ) Full flight of stairs to get down from the driveway to the house were a bit of a surprise, and made unpacking hard - but it was worth it.

The view from this place is awesome. They have updated their furniture and added patio furniture. Loved sitting by the fire on the beach every night. Great place to stay.

Reviewer Comments:

The stay was really wonderful and relaxing! The house is in great condition, clean and updated. I think for what we planned, the location was very centralized. It allowed us to visit local attractions and visit different towns without spending too much time in the car. The views are simply beautiful, even on a cloudy day. And, the firepit provided some very cozy and fun family gatherings. We had to call management because I was having a hard time with the lock box. They were so friendly and helpful! We would totally stay here again. We do wish the beach area landscape was a little more manicured/spruced up but it didn't affect the fun we had at all. Thank you for such a pleasant stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at By The Bay and appreciate that you had such a nice time. We added a new fire pit in late October. The shoreline keeps changing so it will probably stay like it is in some form but will do our best to make it as great as possible.
