We just spent 3 nights at the Treehouse and enjoyed ourselves. The space is pretty divided with the master bedroom being at the opposite end and a floor away: a staircase and three doors from the main area. It allowed privacy between the two families, but also inconvenience to have the 2nd bath far away. All of the furnishing and decorations were really nice, kitchen was well appointed (good knives, plenty of dishes, full set of Tupperware and excellent dishwasher) and the cable/internet was perfect. Blankets and pillows were missing for the pull-out sofa which was an unexpected challenge and the rental company just said they would "tell the owner" when we complained and the upstairs bathroom was really small for the number of people upstairs. The deck, dock to the lake, immediate outdoors and nearby area were incredible, most notable a 20 min hike to Lake Michigan though the National Forest Park.
This place is great for two families or a group of friends. I can see this place being a wonderful destination year-round!
