Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family( 12 in total ) recently stayed at this lovely home. The home is well maintained and comfortable. The property is lovely and the pool was a huge hit with everyone. The owners were pleasant and easy to work with. I would recommend this home to a family looking for a peaceful relaxing vacation. It is located within a short drive to Traverse City which has shopping, many restaurants and beautiful beaches.

Peaceful & relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation included Grandparents, 2 daughters & their husbands and 2 babies and brother & sister-inlaw. We enjoyed Sleeping Bear National Park and Traverse City. We were able to go kayaking, biking, hiking and shopping. The house was located in the country and it was very peaceful after a full day of activities. The house was spacious and the pool was a treat at the end of the day. It was a great family vacation!!

The home is just beautiful (and spotless) and the grounds are breathtaking....watching the horses was so peaceful. The home is even more beautiful than the photos! There are 12 in our family, 7 adults and 5 grandchildren, ages 10 through 18, and we all had a wonderful time.....the pool was such a big hit with everyone! Having all our family under one roof was so much fun...we all loved it. There was more than enough room for everybody. Speaking with the owners, you could tell they are genuinely nice people, and they were so very helpful! Our vacation was just perfect staying at this home!!! I would highly recommend this property!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful family vacation with the Walton Ranch as our base camp. One issue which needs to be dealt with is the oven. After preheating for 30+ minutes, and baking a dish for an hour, I was still able to remove the dish from the oven with my bare hands. This, by no means, is a vacation spoiler, but did result in some very hungry teenagers following a 50 mile bike ride. Other than this easily remedied issue, the property is EXCELLENTLY maintained. Our family loved the indoor pool, and there was plenty of room for us to eat, lounge, and play together.

Great Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

There were 12 of us and we had the best experience for our family vacation. The owners were fantastic to work with and provided all of the information we needed. The house is even better in person than it looks in the photos. So clean (which is important to me) and you felt so comfortable. The location was great just a few miles outside of everything and you could sit out on the patio in the evenings and feel like you were away from everything. I would highly recommend this property and if we go back to that area I would rent it again!
