    Our family of 5 rented this home for Memorial Day weekend. We loved being able to walk out to the water and jump in a kayak. The lake is so clear! The home is comfortable with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen and dining area. We would come back again. The only thing I would change is to add more frying pans. Close to grocery and Traverse City

  • A lot to like

    Josh H from Caledonia, MI recommends this vacation rental

    This is a beautiful location on a crystal clear lake. Because we went in mid-October we were not able to experience all the activities the water had to offer, but standing at the end of the dock you could see straight down to the bottom of the lake! Remarkable. Fire pit looked inviting but unfortunately it rained both evenings and we were unable to enjoy that.

    We had four couples, and the four rooms were perfect. Plenty of space for everyone to hang out, or get some alone time as needed. Rooms were quiet- both during the night and if you turned in early while everyone was still in the living room. Because of the home's layout people could be loud and laughing in the living room and you would not hear a thing in any of the rooms. All eight of us spent plenty of time in the main living room playing games, eating meals, etc., and had plenty of room. We watched the football games on Saturday night on the big screens and each of the rooms had their own televisions with cable. The upstairs did get quite warm with the heat on, but each room had a fan (box fans in most I believe) and we were able to get the temperature to a comfortable level.

    The main part of the house is older (great write-up on the home's history hanging up in the living room), but all is re-done, modern and well kept-up. There were cob webs in certain windows, but that was it as far as anything that was not clean. I am pretty particular about cleanliness and was pleased with the condition of the house.

    The location for our purposes (win tours) was fine, and would have been great were we able to use the lake. Looked like a great lake for swimming and fishing. Not sure about motor boats, wave runners, etc., though there were a couple parked in the garage.

    All in all, this location was exactly what I had hoped from looking at the pictures. There wasn't anything that did not meet my expectations. The home was spacious, clean and had everything we needed for a weekend stay
