About Brik Pardo

We are a family who have used this cottage for over 15 years as a place to relax and bond. There is so much to do and we feel relaxed when ever we go back home. Mackinac Island is only an hour away. Traverse City is 30 minutes. Petoskey is only 45 minutes. The wineries in Traverse City is a great day long getaway.

The lake place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great family vacation. The lake was beautiful and the house was more than comfortable. We would suggest to the owners that they do make it clear to renters that this is a duplex not a single family dwelling. It is part of a mini-resort and would have been quite crowded if all the other buildings on the property had been occupied while we were there. Having said that the neighbors that we did meet were very nice and easy to visit with.

Owner's Response: In reality only a few people rent at the complex. As well I am uncertain if you can find a better beach in the area. I don't believe anyone has ever had an issue. The neighbors, when up there are the nicest people around. This is truly the best family rental in the area.

Great Time at a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great short weekend at the Pardo cottage. It is just like the pictures, although they really don't show how nice it really is. The beach was real nice, and the kids had a great time swimming, playing in the sand, snorkeling in the water, and fishing off the dock. The weather was windy the first two days so the lake was choppy, but the last two it was amazing and like glass.

We caught a nice 4lb small mouth off the end of the dock! The neighbors were nice and very welcoming.

The only thing that was a bit of a surprise is that the property is more of a town house then a cottage, as it is shared with an identical home in the same building. It was not as secluded as we hoped, but that wasn't a huge issue in the end.

Reality Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the wonderful stay! We had a great time! The cottage was clean, newly renovated bathroom and an awesome kitchen table to fit plenty of people. The beach area was always clean and the neighbors provided plenty of toys for our kids to use. The lake was clean and the sunsets were the best. Plenty of sleeping space and the upstairs was comfortable to sleep with the air conditioning unit. The drive to Traverse City was much shorter than expected! Thanks again for the reality getaway!

Had a wonderful time at the cottage. The location was perfect and the beach was amazing. We had 3 toddlers that absolutely loved the water. Its shallow for thr kids to play in the water and bbuild sand castles in the beautiful sand. Great fishing, kids caught a turtle and 18 in bass. I recommend this place to anyone with young children. Also it is great for adults as it has very beautiful sunsets and a relaxing atmosphere with extremely friendly neighbors. Great experience and memories.
