We stayed for 2 weeks while our cottage was being finished. Charming little house , great decor. So close to Traverse City yet in Leelanau County so quick hop to Suttons Bay, Leland and Lake Leelanau . Practically on Leelanau Trail too! Just a short bike ride away. We loved it , perfect for us.

Very Good Location -

  • 4 of 5

This home worked for my family last month. Location of this home is super. A few items would have made it a place to come back to. Screens on windows should be replaced. Holes throughout letting in bugs. The second bedroom on main floor has no door. That was a put-off for family. The kitchen needs to be better stocked. The mini can opener? Had to go online to figure out how to use it. Had guests over for coffee and there are only 3 coffee cups in the kitchen. Had to purchase cups. Owner should invest in serving dishes and pots/pans/acrylic glasses for beach. Also, the cushions on the patio set should be replaced. Tears and rips. Providing paying guests the everyday necessities is paramount - and so appreciated.

Location's good, tight for 6 people.

  • 2 of 5

The listing is accurate, maybe this will be a really cute property when "renovations" are done. The roof over the sitting room pictured has plastic covering it, no shingles. Sitting room is comfortable for 4 at most. Floor/rug is very uncomfortable. The upstairs bathroom has no light and is basically built into a closet - functional toilet/sink, that's it. The stair steps are very shallow so the up/down for bigger kids/adults is tricky. The kitchen is equipped with basic utensils and pots/pans. But if you like to cook bring EVERYTHING. When we arrived there were 2 salt shakers, 3 coffee filters, sweet n low packets and some dish soap. The other bedrooms are very basic but adequate. The waterfront is pretty but if you expect to be using the water a lot, this is not the place. There is no dock and the entrance into the water is sinky mush. The lawn is great, ideal for lawn games, badminton, etc. The location is the best part of the house, minutes into town and easy drive to Glen Arbor, Dunes, etc. It was clean, plenty of towels, and the house manager was very helpful (he gave us a couple of great tips - Good Harbor Beach and Kolu's in Elk Rapids). Bottom line, if you are looking for easy access to TC and a clean place to put your stuff and sleep, this place is great. If you want a comfortable, inviting house to hang out in on the lake, not the place.

Perfect Weekend Getaway.....

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had a perfect girls weekend away at this waterfront home. Everything was perfect! The listing description matched exactly what we received by renting this property. The setting was beautiful and the private beach was perfect for the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The inside of the house was very clean and decorated perfectly. We were very comfortable staying in this really wonderful home. The owner Pam, was awesome to work with when making our reservation. She went way above and beyond with answering our questions and concerns and making sure we were comfortable. She was very prompt. One of the evenings my girlfriends and I even checked out her Bistro - Corky's for dinner. The food and service was fantastic. We highly recommend it when you are in the area. This home was decorated just perfectly for the setting it is in. The beds were very comfortable. It was a very comfortable and relaxing stay. We even had a fire in the fire pit and had just lots of fun and laughter. Us girlfriends definitely made great memories on our weekend and this home was the perfect place to do that. Thank you Pam for everything!
