We were generally very pleased with our stay.The photos represent the home accurately. The home was really very clean! The kitchen facilities were more than adequate for preparing family meals, the fire pit was used every night, the mattresses,bedding and towels were very nice. The inclusion of many kitchen and bathroom basics such as paper towels, toilet paper , garbage bags, dish and hand soap, waxed paper, foil, oil, salt and pepper etc was very thoughtful.
The front porch was very comfortable and a great place for morning coffee and breakfast. There is lots of parking space for our 4 vehicles without having to jockey them around.
There is a very adequate grocery store in nearby Thompsonville and the pub in the resort was a great place for a meal out. Moomers ice cream shop was also well used!
We did have a couple of problems.,,,,that I think future renters should be aware of . We had an ongoing problems with wasps in and around the house. One of our group did get stung, we had one person who has to carry an epi pen so we were quite concerned for him. we also had an infant with us who has never had an insect sting so we were concerned for him. Brad responded very quickly to my message of concern and we had a visit from the maintenance and exterminator within a couple of hrs. The problem did improve but was not fully ratified...after spraying the wasps were generally, if alive stunned .
The second issue that others might want to know is that the air conditioning does not work effectively unless all bedroom doors are left open all the time. Several people were quite uncomfortable on our first night but after the doors were left open the problem was pretty much resolved except for that couple in the basement bedroom with their baby. The door had to be closed so baby could sleep.
Having to leave the doors open and no doors on the downstaris bunk room mean that your group should be very comfortable with the lack of privacy,
Hopefully the very uncomfortable sofa bed in the basement will be repaired or it should be taken off the listing.
We had a great time visiting local beaches including a very nice small beach in nearby Beulah, Sleeping Bear Dunes, villages of Empire and Frankfort. Lots of fun! Many thanks.
Great property, beautiful setting. Very comfortable for a family. Very responsive owner. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay.
Communication was very good and Brad was flexible with checking in and checking out!
The house was clean and well stocked and had plenty of space for our group.
Loved the fire pit and relaxing backyard.
Great Crystal Mt. Rental!
Very nice property in good location. Property owner was great to work with.
While we visited off season yet the stay was very relaxing. The house is well kept cozy cottage with ample space for great family outing. We will certainly consider visiting and renting this place again during peak. The property owner provided great service and prompt responses to questions. The restaurant at the lodge have great food menu for kids and adults alike.
This house was just perfect for our family ski retreat...it comfortably accommodated 12 of us including kids... It was well equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals and lots of space to comfortably sit and visit...
