Wonderful Weekend Away!

  • 5 of 5

Brian and his family have an absolutely lovely home! This was my first time using VRBO and it was a great experience. The home had everything we could need in regards to things like beach towels, linens, cooking utensils and even firewood for the firepit! Everyone had a great time using the kayaks and paddleboat. Fishing off the dock was awesome! (We did bring our own fishing gear.) Highly recommend!

Beautiful, quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect location! Very private, wooded setting, right on the lake. Very nice home, photos are very accurate. Absolutely ideal as it is within 20-30 minutes from several cities with many activities (sleeping bear dunes, Glen Arbor, Suttons Bay, etc.). Owner was extremely helpful. Would stay here again and have already recommended it to several others.

Lovely home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, (2 adults, 2 teenagers), just enjoyed a long weekend here in Lake Ann, and it was a great experience. Even though it was too cold for swimming, and the fish weren't biting, :( , we really enjoyed our stay. Our daughter enjoyed using the kayak and she and her brother had a lot of fun with the pedal boat, which they used to quietly follow the loon for a bit on the lake! The houses' close proximity to Traverse City, Glen Arbor, and the Sleeping Bear Dunes was perfect for great day trips to those places, where we had a lot of fun! The house is super well-equipped, and there wasn't a thing it was lacking, in our opinion. We really felt at home in this quiet, peaceful part of the world, and would definitely come back.

We all really enjoyed our stay at the Lake Stevens property in Lake Ann, MI. The house was clean and neat, and beautifully appointed! We had everything we ever could have wanted, and when we couldn't find the ironing board, one was brought to us!!

The listing of the property was accurate! The owner was very helpful and available!

Everybody had a lot of fun canoeing and paddleboating!

It was also great that WIFI was available so we could all work on our computers.

Thanks for the wonderful accommodations! We'll recommend it to friends!
