    Adam B from Chicago, IL recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at S'more Fun (Also known as the Tackle Box) on Bass Lake in February of 2018. Overall, we really liked the house as it had tons of space and a lot of nice little touches. We really liked the gas fireplace, pool table, easy WiFi access, heated floors(!), great view of the lake, and overall cleanliness of the property. The house is also at the end of the county road so it's nice and quiet. My fiancee described it as a little "scary" but frankly I thought it was very serene.
    There were very few negatives and they were mostly minor, but here goes: None of the dishes seemed particularly clean, and unfortunately the dishwasher has seen better days. The dish racks were rusted through in several places and the dishwasher itself was making some serious grinding noises when we tried to run it, so we just decided to wash everything by hand. We also noticed that the hot water was not incredibly hot in the master bath for whatever reason, but seemed perfectly fine elsewhere in the house. Some of the technology is a little outdated in spots, but its hard to complain about having a TV in almost every room. We actually went to the video store and rented a few DVD's since the TV upstairs didn't have any HDMI ports for our Roku.

    Overall we really liked the place and will definitely come back if its available the next time we come up to Traverse City.

    Leon G from Rochester, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Wonderful home. Home is 4 levels. Bedrooms are on lower 2 walkout levels. There was heated floors which would have made rental wonderful, however they weren't working except in the master bath. Bedrooms were un-acceptably cold. Contacted Visit Up North and was advised that upper forced air registers needed to be closed for the lower areas to warm, per the property owner. After doing that warmth was not adequate, so we went to Menard's and bought electric space heaters and that resolved it. Snow was supposed to be plowed over 3in and that wasn't really kept up with. Snow was plowed once during our 5 day stay even though it snowed every day. I believe we got about 18in while we were there and the property is below street level. Have 4 wheel drive and never had a problem, when we left there was 8-10in on the ground and was concerned about getting up driveway but we made it. I shoveled quite a bit. There was 1 shovel and a second one would be helpful to speed that process up as the plow service when they do come, don't do walkway to vehicles. All in all it was a great rental with the above mentioned exceptions. I would not recommend rental to older persons or those with disabilities, at least in winter months.

      We appreciate your review and are glad you enjoyed S'More Fun. When speaking during our courtesy call the day after check-in, we did offer to send an employee to troubleshoot the heated floors and were told you did not want your stay disturbed. We are sorry that they were not functioning and would have been happy to have helped (but it would have required someone coming to the home). During the winter storm between Dec. 29 and 31, many roads were closed as well as Sherrif's departments requesting people stay off the roads except for emergencies. This put our plow trucks a little behind and we are sorry for the inconvenience. The snow really came fast and furious during a short time! We hope you'll be able to return to the home and we appreciate your feedback in order to improve our services.
