About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This beautifully built 2600 square foot home in the private residential area of Trout Creek Resort, is on a high bluff with an unparalleled panoramic view of Boyne Highlands.

The huge 700 square foot deck can be used to barbecue a meal or read a book as it overlooks the tree canopy below. No other house or condo is in sight from our deck, consequently the setting is peaceful and serene.

In the fall, the trees are alive with brilliant color. In the winter, the ski slopes at Boyne are lit up like Disney World! In the spring and summer the many spectacular golf courses are a dream come true for the golf enthusiast.

Nub's Nob, located one-half mile away, has been voted the #1 ski area in the Midwest for the past three years. There are 246 acres of skiing on 43 slopes with a phenomenal snowboarding area. There is a free shuttle to their slopes on ski weekends.

Boyne Highlands, located across the street, offers 49 expertly groomed slopes. This is where the thrill seekers will find the most vertical run, longest run and steepest run in the Midwest. It also offers ten miles of groomed cross country trails. In the summer the new Zip Line is a thrill to do for the adventurists!

This home was built in 2004. It contains a master bedroom with a king bed, a bathroom which has a jetted Jacuzzi and separate shower. The second bedroom has a queen bed with private full bath. The third bedroom has two bunk beds that sleep four. There is also a queen sleeper sofa in the living room with a fireplace that makes it feel nice and cozy in the winter.

Perhaps you'd care to try your hand at billiards. There is a beautiful table just asking to be played. Or, you might just want to chill out and watch one of our four satellite equipped TVs or watch a video or DVD.

If you stray away from the house and down to the front of the resort there are three pools (one indoor, one outdoor, one indoor/outdoor), a sauna, a hot tub, four tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, a basketball court, and numerous trails to walk or ride mountain bikes on. There are even two stocked trout ponds.

For a day trip, visit Mackinaw City, where ferryboats depart for Michigan's most popular tourist attraction, Mackinaw Island. It is just a half hour away. Take the ferry over to the island, where cars are forbidden, and experience a horse-drawn carriage tour. Rent a horse and explore the island yourself. Take a bicycle-built-for-two and circle the island. Visit the Grand Hotel where Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour starred in the movie 'Somewhere In Time' and walk the longest porch in the world.

Northern Michigan is a mecca of sandy beaches and unmatched sunsets over Lake Michigan. Shop and eat at the fantastic shopping and restaurant districts in Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Mackinaw City and Charlevoix. Browse through the unique shops and boutiques at your leisurely pace and explore neighborhoods graced with elegant Victorian homes.

We'll be waiting for you with a warm smile and a friendly word. Come and experience vacation destination like no other. We've got a home that will welcome you here and keep you coming back time after time.

This place has it all! You cannot help but relax when you stay there. The fantastic view, the cozy furniture & beds, and all the extra touches the owner provides make you feel welcome and settle in quickly. We have chosen this place several times and would recommend it highly for a couple and/or family and friends any time.

The perfect place for a family ski getaway...

  • 5 of 5

We comfortably slept two families of 4 in this beautiful home! Such a great find, so close to Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands.. take your pick!

Plenty of room to relax, perfect sleeping spaces for our young kids, and lots of activities with the in-house pool table and foosball. The swimming at Tout Creek was right down the hill and was big hit, too. The road is well maintained so it's easy getting in and out, and the fact that it's a private home connected with Trout Creek means you get privacy but all the amenities.

We would definitely stay here again.

Relaxing place with enjoyable features!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this Trout Creek house for a week. The house was plenty big enough for the two families we had there and was clean. Everything we needed was available. Everything about the house is relaxing - the layout, furniture, scenery. Our kids loved being on a mountain and having access to the pool. The large open field at the base of Trout Creek was great for a family baseball game too!. Harbor Springs and Petoskey are only minutes away. We were just far enough to feel the quiet comfort of up north; yet, close enough to grocery shop, putt putt, or go out to dinner.

Beauty, Comfort, Location

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is located in a very safe condo community. Mackinac, Petoskey and Traverse City are a short drive away. Owners list of suggested restaurants and things to do was very helpful. Ski resorts, wineries and shopping. Several pools available, hi-definition satellite dish, plenty of kitchen utensils, two master bedrooms, jetted tub, game room and gas grill make for a very comfortable stay. View from balcony like the mountains in Tennessee. We would do this again in a minute!

Truly a Home Away. More than we expexted. Ten Stars for sure.

  • 5 of 5

This house has all we needed from top to bottom. The pictures do not do this place justice. The view from the deck is amazing. I am sure we will all recommend the house to our friends and family. We had 6 people, but the listing says will sleep 10 and I truly believe 10 could be comfortable. I hope that we can visit again.

Thank you for a great extended weekend.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time and there was plenty of room for everyone. It was nice to play pool and fooseball after skiing all day. The house was close enough to nubs to come back for lunch also. We would definitely stay again. Thank you Richard!
