Great location, great accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly where we wanted to be and enabled us to do exactly what we wanted to do: hang out at the lakeshore, visit the tourist attractions and come home for a campfire at night. The kitchen was well organized and we had no trouble finding the utensils and equipment we needed for cooking big family meal. Sleeping was comfortable.

Perfect for the eleven of us!

  • 5 of 5

The interior of the house was very roomy and up north cozy. The kitchen was very well stocked with plenty of dishes, glasses, utensils, bowls & pots & pans. Everyone had a bed to sleep in & we enjoyed the spacious dining/great room space. All could fit at the dining room table & the great room area was very comfortable. The kids & some adults enjoyed the basement game room too. Ideal location, very close to Glen Lake, Glen Arbor & Sleeping Bear Dunes!
