Girls Week-end

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for the fall color week-end and we absolutely loved it! Very spacious, clean, really comfortable furniture and beds, decorated very well and a fully supplied kitchen. The owner was really accommodating. I would highly recommend this condo and hope to return for another stay.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for a weekend of skiing at Shanty Creek/Schuss Mountain. It was beautiful, very tastefully decorated, roomy, and had everything to fit our needs. The owners were very accommodating, helpful, and quick with responses. Access to the skiing hill, downtown Bellaire, and many other places in Northern Michigan was very easy from this location. Any season this condo would be ideal with all it has to offer in the area. My family found it very comfortable, we only wished we could have been able to enjoy the nice size deck on the back, we'll just have to plan a warm weather trip here now too! Great vacation place.

Great northern Michigan cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage. I am a designer and the furnishings and interior were lovely, very comfortable, and clean. The view over the 5th hole of The Chief golf course was beautiful, especially this time of year with the fall colors. My husband enjoyed playing this challenging course. It was lovely to see the rise over the 5th hole. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking. The town of Bellaire is cute and has some nice restaurants. We took a day trip to Harbor Springs and did the tunnel of trees drive. We also spent one day on Leelanau Peninsula doing wine tasting. The entry lock was easy to use, it was nice to have a keyless entry. The television cable was easy to use which is not always the case with rentals. The owner was helpful in answering questions. One thing that would be nice is wi-fi but it would not have made a difference on our deciding to stay here. I would highly recommend this cottage and would definitely stay here again should we go to this area.

Happy Renter

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I stayed here for 1 week. We loved the condo/cottage. We traveled around the north Michigan area and this was a great location. The condo looks just like the pictures and was very comfy and inviting. The kitchen was well appointed so we were able to make our meals at home. Beds were comfortable, plenty of towels and it was great to have a washer and dryer. I would recommend this property highly. Next time we come to this area, we will rent again. Thank you for renting to us.

Absolutely phenominal

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely beautiful! All the amenities that you would need for an enjoyable vacation. Only suggestion would be a grill for outdoor cooking- forced us to zip down to "Shorts brewery" and have some great beer and entertainment. Thank you Kathy for your hospitality and allowing us to rent this beautiful condo.
