About Madhu Scherba

My husband and I love to travel internationally and try to bring all the exotic flavors to this vacation home. Our goal is to make sure all of our guests have a memorable time staying here.

Madhu Scherba purchased this house in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very private setting, yet close to many activities. Our family of six really enjoyed our stay in this very clean, and roomy home. We were impressed with all the attention to details, and all the extra comforts provided—especially in the family room and kitchen. The décor throughout this spacious home was very cozy, and we loved all the windows that let in views of nature in every room. It truly felt like an escape. Even though the weather was very cool, we had a very nice time touring the area—including Mission Point, Traverse City and Alden. To my son’s delight, we even discovered a new mountain bike trail nearby in Alden. When we returned from either sightseeing or swimming at Schuss Mountains heated pools, we relaxed, grilled, read, watched movies and even enjoyed an intense game of Monopoly! The price was right and we highly recommend staying here!

Somewhat disappointed

  • 3 of 5

Had high hopes when I booked this beautiful home for a family get together. It is a beautiful home but experienced issues along the way. One of the biggest disappointmenit was the gas grill being inoperable. We had steaks and fish we planned to grill, but unfortunately the burners were completely rusted through. We would have loved to spent time on the decks, front or back, but the furniture was disgusting. The ability to access Shanty Creek Resort is a real asset to this home. There were other issues and we were partially reimbursed for our inconvience. We were told they would look into our issues and I hope they do.

The pictures for this amazing home does not do it justice!! Everything you could ask for was available. The hotel pool was great and the beach club was brilliant. We will definitely be returning here!!

Real beds for all my tall guys - plenty of room to stretch out - nice big kitchen table for us all!

  • 4 of 5

Many times when you try to book a place like this, they consider a pull out couch and bunk beds as part of their count for acceptable sleeping arrangements. Such crap when you have grown kids and their spouses. Who wants to sleep on a lumpy thin pull out couch with a bar in the middle? This place has a king, a queen and two full beds. There are also two twin roll away beds and a queen air mattress if needed.

The kitchen has a ton of dishes. Also supplied were coffee filters (something many places don't supply - how annoying), dish soap, dishwashing detergent and laundry detergent if needed. You may want to bring tin foil and Saran Wrap or food storage bags if you anticipate left overs. Kitchen is short on mixing bowls and large pans - think cake pans or casserole pans. I always bring my big ones or the foil throw away pans.

Overall, beds were comfy, sheets were clean, bathrooms were spotless and there was plenty of room for us all to stretch out and relax. I loved that we could all sit down at the table for dinner together.

House is very close to both ski hills, but there are so many side roads it got a bit confusing at times to travel. You will need to drive if you plan on skiing. Apparently you also have access to the pool at Shanty Creek, but we did not utilize the pool.

Master bedroom has an adjoining bath with whirlpool tub and seperate shower, but the bath is also accessible to the main living area as well - so it isn't 100 % private. There is also a living area beyond the master bedroom with a couch, chair and fireplace. The only way to access this living area is through the bedroom, so that is very private if you need to lock the kids out for a while! This area houses some movies, games, books and magazines.

All of the bedrooms had their own television. The two bedrooms upstairs shared a bathroom which is equipped with a regular tub/shower combo.

Great place to relax. Quiet with the modern conveniences of cable / satellite tv and Internet service. I would definately recommend this place.
