Reviewer Comments:

It's a cozy cottage with a gorgeous view of the lake. Unfortunately, we were not aware hat the properties are so close and that the cottage is quite small. Because we have dogs, who are very energetic, they needed space to run. Since the properties are so near, i felt it was difficult to keep the dogs Near the cottage. I think that VisitUpNorth is a great company and were very professional, but there should be transparency on how close the neighbors our located and how close the cottages are to the road, especially for families with small children and pets. If that information was available beforehand, we probably would have sought a different cottage option.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are very transparent with the information we share about our rentals. When writing descriptions, most guests are not interested in road setbacks and proximity to other houses. If it is important to the renter they should ask. We will do everything we can with information we have to make your stay more comfortable. We have literally counted steps and measured depths for our guests just because they asked. This home is not close to a road and the speed limit here is 35. It is a very quiet family neighborhood. We love to welcome pets however it is encouraged that they are leashed and not allowed to go on other properties. We do have doggy parks in our area which is perfect for letting them run.

Had a wonderful time at this little cottage. The cottage was just like grandma's from long ago. Beds were OK, beach and dock great. Could use a good floor cleaning, change of rugs in bathroom and windows hard to open. The newly renovated bathroom was great. Pleasantly surprised to find WiFi. Besides the wonderful weather it was a great place to relax and enjoy Lake MI.

We loved having our own little beach - was perfect for kids! The house could use a bit of a face lift, but the sunroom and outdoor areas are lovely.

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our time at Four Whitings. The location was excellent. The beach was just outside the back door, and was relatively private. There is a brand-new Meijer's just a few minutes away. We arrived to find the home clean, with a newer sofa and brand-new refrigerator. We were very pleased that there was wifi available. In general, the home was clean and well maintained, and stocked with clean towels, trash bags, paper towels, hand soap, and basic cleaning supplies. We requested a mid-week towel restock, which was provided at no charge. Although this house claims to sleep 6, it would probably not be comfortable for more than 4. While in the area, we visited Jolly Pumpkin, Rare Bird, Right Brain Brewery, Moomers, and the Cheese Lady, and would recommend all.

Reviewer Comments:

The cabin we stayed in was very run down. As soon as you entered the door you were greeted with soiled stained carpet and dirty wall paper. There was a bad odor and we had to buy room deodorizer to mask the scent. The only charming thing was the view of the bay. We had thought about staying at another property in Traverse City during our visit. Nonetheless, we cut our trip short just as our experience was not a positive one. I would recommend a total renovation of the interior and exterior before anyone stay at this property or at least fix the dated kitchen.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback . This is a modest cabin and perhaps things could be freshened up. There is a totally new bathroom with walk in shower, new carpeting and other amenity changes that have been done in the last year. The cleaning should have been better and we apologize for that.

Reviewer Comments:

The location was convenient for sightseeing and dining and the view was nice. The outdoor furniture was falling apart. My main complaint was with housekeeping and management. No cleaning supplies were provided and no change of sheets, washer or dryer. Management said I should bring sheets into their office and I could get a clean set. My point was that I'm renting for 2 weeks and housekeeping should change sheets and at least clean the bathroom which was very tiny and inconvenient with no soap holder in the shower or even a caddy. After much discussion someone came to change the sheets but that was all. The kitchen was well supplied with cooking utensils but no staples. Since we flew we couldn't bring any food. The weather was perfect. We will be back to Traverse City but not to 4 Whitings.

Owner's Response: We thank you for your review and apologize for any inconvenience you experienced. We were not aware of problems with the outdoor furniture. We will speak with our owner to update these. We do supply a list of what we supply (starter toilet paper, paper towels, bar soap, pump and dishwasher soap, trash bags). If a mid stay clean is requested we would schedule that for a fee. We would have left complimentary linens but again we have to know that is needed. We find many guests even bring their own linens & are not always needed. Staples are not supplied at any rental. A caddy is a good idea to add to this rental for the bathroom.
