1. Place was very clean..
2. The house had everything you could possibly need, plenty of dishes/pots/pans, soap, TP...even had in unit laundry.
3. Mark is very responsive, even offered us an early check in when we notified him that we were nearby.
4. Starvation Lake was suited for most uses...nice sandy bottom near the house for swimming, perfect for kayaking or paddle boarding, big enough for sport boats and pretty decent fishing too.
5. The fire pit is bananas.
6. The VHS collection is exceptional if you run into a washout.
Thanks to Mark and the family for a terrific stay.
We appreciate the kind words, glad you had a wonderful time. Thanks you for your stay
The home was in ok shape upon arrival (mouse poop in beds, lightbulbs not working, large amount of cobwebs/spiders). Although what really got me was that after we left, I received a shaming text message from the owner about the "condition" we left the home as his cleaning lady was upset that there was dishes left in the sink and hair in the drain. Which confused me as in the contract it states that a cleaning company comes in after we leave and we paid additional amount due to having a dog.
Cute cottage on a beautiful lake. Owner is very nice, easy to work with and answers emails quickly. We enjoyed swimming and canoeing in the lake, campfires, and BBQ's. Thank you!!
Glad you enjoyed your stay!
Great place to stay with family
My family has stayed here 3 times the last 2 years. We went in the winter for snowmobiling, and it was great! It has plenty of room for the 8 of us. The place is clean, cozy, in a great location and Mark, the owner is very easy to work with.
A perfect winter getaway
This was our 3'rd year of family ice fishing camp. As usual, we found the cottage clean and well appointed with plenty of space for our group. We caught lots of fish, ate too much food, and had a really relaxing weekend. We love this place!
My wife, 3 kids and dogs just spent the past four days here. The cabin was very comfortable, clean and had a great private setting on the lake. Mark was great to work with and made us feel right at home. We ate dinner two of the nights right down the road at Ed's Hideaway bar. Really an awesome off the beaten path pad!
Thank You Dennis, the weather has been unbelievable this year we had another 12 inches of snow last night, Thank you for your stay we looks forward to having you back soon!
Jordan river valley, deadmans hill and federal fish hatchery is 20 minutes away. Visit traverse city or Petoskey in less than 45 minutes. Wine tours and some of the best craft beers can be enjoyed from the deck or your fire pit most days of the week.
