We had a wonderful week.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at the house. The house was beautiful, well furnished, and well stocked. The lake was beautiful, and warm. We had 3 families staying ,12-14 in all. Having three separate living areas was nice. The nice sandy beach kept the 6 children busy all week.

We had nightly fires in the brick fire pit. I loved the wrap around deck.

The location was quiet and relaxing, and yet only around 10 minutes from Traverse City, It was very convenient.

I don’t know how you did it, but thanks for the rainbow!!

Perfect Trip!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin provided the perfect venue for our weekend gathering! There ended up being 12 of us (all reasonably large adult males), and there was more than enough space for us all to sleep comfortably. Although we showed up very prepared with almost everything we needed to function, there were enough utensils, pots, pans, towels, bedding, etc. that we could have shown up empty handed and been just fine. If all else fails, there is a grocery store and pizza joint (with AMAZING pizza) conveniently located just up the road.

Our favorite part of the cabin was absolutely the basement and outdoor space. We spent time on the main floor to cook and eat, but otherwise we spent all of our time downstairs. The basement area is huge (the pictures don't do it justice!) and is the perfect space for a large group of people to hang out, with a pool table, several large tables, kitchen space, large refrigerator, television, and bathroom. The beach area is also great - the weather was relatively cold, but we were still outside most of the weekend playing yard games and enjoying the scenery, and having a couple of bonfires in the evenings.

Most of us are from northern Michigan and have since scattered across the country, and this trip was an absolutely perfect weekend spending time together in a place we all love prior to a couple of us getting married over the summer (yes, it was a bachelor party). It is also worth noting that the owner was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone looking, and I hope we can get enough of our friends together sometime in the near future to be able to rent it again!

Wonderful house and a great game room

  • 5 of 5

This was a family vacation for us with our two sons, their wifes and our six grandkids ranging in age from ten to two. We all had a wonderful week. The house was wonderful and very comfortable and we all enjoyed the game room. The beach was perfect for our grandkids. They enjoyed swimming and fishing off the docks. We would not hesitate to book another stay here.

Perfect New Year's Eve and Birthday Venue

  • 5 of 5

I "blessed" my daughter with a December 31 birthday and upon the birth of my grandson, I delegated myself her New Year's Eve/birthday sitter for as long as necessary! Well, this year was my 17th year of having New Years Eve with my grandson and also her 40th birthday....thus, a celebration was in order! :)

( Not counting on an 18 yr old spending NY Eve with his Grandma ! ) As all my family...except myself...reside in TC and Lake Ann, it only made sense to bring the party here. But where? And then I found High Lake Lodge on VRBO and the most gracious hostess in Diana Wright. A more perfect, accommodating, spacious, age-appropriate, equipped, cozy and beautiful venue could not have been found! Diana met us upon our arrival to show us the home and amenities and checked in once, by text, to be sure all was going well on the week-end. The layout of the lodge provided room to spread out, have an open house, buffet, birthday, various areas to visit and hang out, play games, without ever feeling crowded! My grandsons and many of their friends came and went but not without shoveling, hooking up lighting and making a skating rink on the lake where hockey nets and pucks were in motion all week-end! When needing a break to get warm, they surrounded the pool table, bumper pool and foosball tables in the lower level. Flat screen TV's downstairs/upstairs kept holiday football and hockey games playing as well as the celebratory countdown to 2017! As my family was local, not everyone spent the nights (stayed Friday to Monday ) but there was plenty of bedding for tired hockey players/friends who chose ( and I insisted ) not to drive.

Like other reviews, the interior of High Lake Lodge is incomprehensible from the outside for its size and beautiful decor....honestly, a cot can fit inside the showers and there are 3 completely equipped kitchens with refrigerators / ovens /stoves...how gratefully easy it made hosting a party!

I excitedly and appreciatively recommend this property/home to fulfill any family gathering expectations and beyond! Remember this is a winter review and their facilities for summer enjoyment look amazing! Thank you, Diana and owners, for the gift of memories that High Lake Lodge gave my family for this very special occasion!

Much Bigger Than It Looks!

  • 5 of 5

The place is massive! The pictures don't do it justice! All the fixtures, kitchens, bathrooms are high end and beautiful. I would definitely rent this cabin again. It would be perfect for 2 families because there are 2 completely separate apartments/sides with their own kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms. The common room down stairs is large and was a great place for everyone to hang out. The owner was extremely welcoming and easy to work worth too!

Memories, Memories, Memories!

  • 5 of 5

Not much more I can say about this wonderful place that hasn't already been said. We gathered our five adult children, two sons-in-law and two young grandchildren from California and Georgia to create new memories in Northern Michigan where my husband spent many summers as a kid. My husband's brother and his wife and their adult daughter joined us for a couple of nights too. Twelve adults and two children, and we couldn't have asked for a better place for all of us to stay comfortably together. The house is stocked with everything you could ever need. The owners thought of every detail, including clothes pins and a sharpie to identify the bath towels! There was something for everyone to do. If you didn't want to spend all day in the lake, there was plenty of room on the beach to set up cornhole or volleyball (bring your own). If you're not an outdoor person, you could stay inside and play pool or foosball or various card games. We visited Sleeping Bear Dunes and Old Mission Point which were both an easy drive from the lodge. Diana was super friendly and accommodating. I don't know if we'll ever make our way back to Northern Michigan, but if we do, you can rest assured we'll know where to stay!
