Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank-you for sharing your family lake house - we had a wonderful stay! The house was perfect, plenty of space for all of us with large rooms, comfortable beds, and huge bathrooms! We loved the deck with its view of the water, and enjoyed hosting a family dinner on Saturday night. We used all the boats and my son especially enjoyed kayaking around Stevens Lake. The water was warm and clear, perfect for swimming. Our only minor complaint was no dish towels in the kitchen, and none for us could figure out how to use the can opener :-)

We hope to return to your lovely lake house again!

Comfortable family lake house

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this lake house. It is a small lake (Stevens lake), but perfect for swimming and kayaking or canoeing. Everything you need is provided. Rustic but very well equipped, and loaded with interesting art. Brian was extremely helpful. Easy access to Traverse City and other tourist destinations. Highly recommend, and I hope we can go back sometime.

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!

Fort Thomas, KY

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.
