My family had a wonderful Thanksgiving at the house. It was large but had a cozy feeling to the house,decorated to make you feel at home. We are always working, so it was nice to slow down, have a fire, play some boardgames and spend some quality family time together. The amenities of this house were perfect! We will be coming back again.

Reviewer Comments:

This cottage provided us with a great place for a relaxing vacation. Most appreciated were the three bedrooms each with it's own bathroom. Improvements would be improving the porch with appropriate furniture and taking off the plastic window covers. The porch could be wonderful. As it is it is far from it. Better light at the dining table would be appreciated. It was almost impossible to play games there. Add a chair to the master bedroom along with a closet.

We are a group of moms who stayed at North Porch for a girls weekend break from our kids, and it was perfect! The house is immaculate and has a great "Up North" feel to it. The view was beautiful, and Long Lake was fun to explore on the provided kayaks and on a pontoon boat we rented (from a private owner) for a day. The kitchen is very well stocked. We spent one day wine tasting on Old Mission Peninsula, and the drive to Traverse City and to the wineries isn't too far. I definitely recommend this property.

The North Porch was beautiful!! The house was spacious and clean (other than the screened porch). The kitchen was stocked with everything you needed. LOVED the gas stove!! One thing would of been helpful would of been black-out curtains in the bedrooms. The sun would beat in and wake us up early in the am. We loved the fire pit and the doc was nice since we rented a boat.
