    a guest from Livonia, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We thought the rental was very cute. The driveway and main entrance was a little scary - very narrow and sort of a strange set up - a big log of wood sticks out on the steps and there is no hand railing. There did not appear to be railings on the exterior deck either. I can see why they only want 4 cars in the lot as it was a tough set up. The house was not the cleanest; the tub in the lower level filled with water during showers. We had to open the sofa to look for a lost item and found debris and popcorn. The kitchen lacked what I would think were basic items; basic bowls for mixing or serving. The mixed messages on garbage was also a point of contention. I am not sure how we would get garbage to 5 mile rd or where on that street we would have put it.I thought the property management staff was the best thing about this place!

      Thank you for your review. The owners are looking into correcting the driveway issue . There is a rail walking up to the door so we are not sure what you are referring to. We actually limit cars to reduce overcrowding and out of respect for the neighbors. We will add additional kitchen items. We are sorry for the debris in the sofabed and for the confusion on the garbage. "Red" bags are provided. During a weekend stay they should be placed in the garage for the housekeeper to move to the road. For long stays we ask the guest to place at the road the night before pickup. Typically guests drive the bags to the main road.

    a guest from Belding, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Great Vacation- home was nice and clean. Pictures are exact! Great location close to town, but with a country setting! Up North staff was very attentive with follow up and phone calls! Suggestions kitchen needs a few more dishes and pans, maybe an electric fry pan- we cooked most meals. Update information about what to do with trash and the day it needs to go out! Beds were comfy to
    most! The grass needed to be cut as we had a little one and a dog to play in the yard. Living room has setting for4-5 people. Great house, great time!

    We had a great time! The location of this house is just far enough outside of town to make it feel like you're in the woods, but close enough to every amenity Traverse City has to offer!

    Lisa G from East China, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Our family vacation was spent at Hakala Hills Retreat. It was a clean, updated, and great place to stay! The staff answered questions in a timely matter and took care of concerns immediately. They were very kind and installed a window air conditioner for the week to accommodate my physical disability. The only thing I would suggest is making the steps on the back a smaller rise and adding a handrail.

    • Manager Responded on 1/7/2018

      We will forward on your suggestions to the owner and hope you will book through Visit Up North again!!

    a guest from Byron Center, MI recommends this vacation rental

    This cabin is very convenient to Traverse City, and in good condition. The only drawback is that it is located in a cell phone dead zone, and there were no instructions for connecting to the wifi. The rental company was helpful in getting wifi info when we called, but it would have been helpful if some basic instructions for the wifi and television were left in the rental.

    • Manager Responded on 1/7/2018

      We will take your sugguestion to heart we rely on the app that we send everyone to get the codes but it is nice to make sure they are posted as well especially considering the varying cell service to areas. Hope you come back again!

    The overall experience was great. The property management people were very professional and supplied all the information in a timely fashion. The property was as advertised and suited our needs. We wish they would have supplied the internet pass word though. we would definitely stay again
