Great Wedding, Great Vacation Home, Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this gorgeous vacation home last week for three nights for our son's wedding weekend (destination wedding). Awesome home!!! Very beautiful, very spacious & very comfortable for family of 14. The home was clean & well set. Very quiet surrounding. All our guests who stayed with us enjoyed their stay. Since we were there for the wedding & since it was a very hectic weekend, my only regret is I personally could not thoroughly enjoy the home. Hope to be back again. Thanks Tessa for sharing your beautiful home with us. I would definitely recommend this home!!

Wonderful wedding, wonderful weekend, wonderful accomodations!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at the Big Red House for our son's wedding weekend and we are so very happy with our choice. The festivities were in Bay Harbor and in Charlevoix and the location for us was just perfect! The home was clean, spacious and so comfortable for 10 of us (all adults) that stayed there. With the hectic schedule that a destination wedding presents, the home was a quiet and peaceful oasis for our "down time". We especially enjoyed the large side porch and picnic table!! This was my first experience with VRBO and if this is the typical experience I would definitely do it again. A big thank you to the owners, the Reynolds, for sharing their amazing home!
