The facilities are fabulous and really well thought out. The property is beautiful.

My family and I had a great time. The property is far enough outside the larger cities to give it a secluded feeling, but close enough that we were able to easily drive to Mackinaw City and ferry to idyllic Mackinac Island. Foodies will love Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Charlevoix. For those seeking recreation, the golf options were amazing, with plenty of beautiful courses designed to fit different skill levels and budgets. We also visited the beautiful Northern Michigan beaches to swim and relax in the sun. There are still many things we didn't not have time to do or explore, so I plan to return again sometime soon.

Escaped the Arizona Heat!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cabin!! The home itself was more than enough for the 3 of us, but it also included a loft above the garage that was equipped like a family room. A perfect place for the kids or younger adults to escape the "old people" or for the adults to escape to when the kids are sleeping in the main cabin. The interior woodwork is exceptional. I truly enjoyed the spiral staircase to the second floor loft. The cabin was completely equipped including a kitchen with the necessities to cook anything from hamburgers on the grill to fancier cuisine. It is quietly located out of the way of civilization but is still only about a 15 minute drive from Petowski or the Bay Harbour area. It is centrally located in between Traverse City in one direction and Macinac Island in another. Both are about an hour and a half drive away.

Excellent home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with all the amenities. The owner was delightful to work with. I can't say enough good things about our stay at his house. It was my son's wedding, so we needed a place like home. This was it!
