    a guest from Portage, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Great condo for accommodating two families. Close to our favorite places...Leland, Glen Arbor, Northport, Empire, and all of the beautiful Lake Michigan beaches in between. Nice to have a pool on the days where the big lake is not so warm.

    Matt D from Shelby Township, MI recommends this vacation rental

    This was an almost perfect property for our family. We did experience a few difficulties, but nothing that would prevent us from staying again. The grill was dirty, but we were able to get it pretty clean so we could use it. The remote controls for the tvs and dvd player were missing, but I ran to Meijer and bought some so we could use them. The dryer was not working upon our arrival, but the property managment was on top of it and had it fixed the same day. Our biggest complaints were that the sliding doors do not lock, and when they are in locked position, you can still get them open. This could be fixed with a simple piece of wood cut to fit so that the door can't slide open from the outside. Luckily, I was able to find a spare piece of wood that fit pretty well in one of the storage areas so that my son could feel safe sleeping in the basement. The other complaint is that we were without wifi for two days. I'm not sure if it was a property problem or a provider problem. Yes, I know we were on vacation and shouldn't be too concerned with wifi, but we use Netflix to watch movies. Other than those very minor things, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. This is a very quiet property, so if you are looking for nightlife, look elsewhere. Our kids had great fun exploring and hiking and everyone we met was very friendly. The pool was great as well, we just didn't have great weather so we only used it once. Our condo was clean upon arrival and the property management was very easy to deal with and gave great service when we called. While you do have to drive a ways to get to the attractions, we thought that was part of the charm. We saw a few things we wouldn't have normally seen just by staying in downtown TC. We would suggest this property for anyone that has a larger family and wants to stay in a quiet area.

    Kelly P from McAllen, TX recommends this vacation rental

    We loved our stay at SugarBuzz! Very convenient with the lock box upon arrival. The furnishings were not only comfy but sort of modern with bright colors and trendy decor. We all enjoyed the double wide settee in the living area! Great view of "the hill" . I ate breakfast there every morning. The kitchen was stocked with quality dishes and cookware. The upstairs beds were very comfortable. Downstairs one bedroom had two sets of bunk beds which my 20-something boys slept in. This might've been better for smaller children but they were ok. My husband and sons played both of the golf courses and loved it. Great place to take walks or ride bikes, throw the football or hike up the hill. Beautiful views from up there! We played a little tennis but the courts are really in disrepair. Excellent location with a short distance to Leland, Suttons Bay, and Glen Arbor. Definitely recommend this unit and Visit Up North Vacations.

    Patricia M from Chelsea, MI recommends this vacation rental

    lovely condo-but had a few cleaning issues. groups of dead bugs under large windows on main floor, and the master bedroom bed cover (and room in general) smelled stongly of dog. These would not prevent a future stay, but thought you might like to know.

    • Manager Responded on 11/27/2013

      Thank you for your review. We are sorry about the bugs. Here up north it is a constant battle to keep them out. When it is a rental we only have the departure date to vacuum them up. They seem to return promptly. So goes life in the north. The bedding was removed and cleaned.

    a guest from Rochester, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Overall the condo was nice, but could use a facelift. Kitchen was dirty upon arrival, food on floor in cupboard and oven was dirty. Cupboards and drawers were broken and unfinished....looks like painted with primer. Outside grill was dirty. There were no screens on the any of the windows for us to open them.
    Sliding doors were hard to open and screens in rough shape. Entry storm door lock was broken and would not shut and slammed every time it closed. Extra linens and blankets were thrown in closets and were a mess in all bedrooms closets. Carpeting was very dirty in entry way and throughout living area. On a positive note, bedrooms were nicely decorated and air conditioners worked great! Beds were comfortable. Living room couches were nice and TV was large and up to date! I realize the condos are old, but updates do need to be made in order to keep up with other condos I have stayed at on the same property.

    • Manager Responded on 11/27/2013

      We assure future guest's that these issues have been addressed. The sliding doors at the time of this posting have not been updated however.

    David P from Antioch, IL recommends this vacation rental

    Very much enjoyed our stay at Sugar Buzz. Located on property of a now closed resort. Sad that it closed, nice that we enjoyed fun in the pool and the old tennis court! Quiet and relaxing as it is in the middle of nowhere. Don't stay here if you are looking for action and excitement--although it was cool that we had small planes occasionally land on the neighboring air strip. Ice cream place in Cedar is recommended. Friendly and affordable. Thanks!

    a guest from Macomb, MI recommends this vacation rental

    This unit was in good condition, and offered lots of room for a large family, or two smaller families. Everything was great, and the pool within walking distance was fantastic for the kids. The only hesitation I'd have is to say that if you have small children (under 3) this unit is not the most kid friendly for kids that are just starting to walk/crawl/climb. It's just not setup too well for that.

    Shobhit S from Troy, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Close to beach, next to golf course and away from all the rush and madness of people vacationing up north. What more can one ask for. Beautiful landscape of ski hill in the backdrop and a air strip for twin engine and Cessna planes in the front. Facility had a nice and clean pool as well.

    Unit is next to 2 scenic golf courses Sugar Loaf the old course and Manitou Passage, an Arnold Palmer course.

    The unit how're needs some maintenance. Air conditioners need replacement and so does bathroom. Having portable or pedestal fans will also help.

    Be prepared to drive 10 mins for groceries in Cedar and or a nice dinners in Glen Arbor

    Overall a good, relaxing vacation place.

    Bill D from Grand Blanc, MI recommends this vacation rental

    With exception of minor problems with air conditioner and shower faucet everything was great. Up North Management was quick to respond when contacted and problems were resolved. If you want to grill out remember to bring your own propane tank or get the tank filled locally. Guest beds were good, King, Queen; what can I say about bunk beds, with ample towels for personal use. Need to bring your own beach towels. Kitchen was adequately stocked with accessories but you may want to bring your own bag of ice. Key box is on beam as you enter the unit not on the door which made locating the key box at night a little tricky in the dark. Overall I would say that the six of us were very pleased with the unit and would use it again. Too bad it is a minimum 3 night rental instead of two but two of our husbands stayed until Monday to play golf. Mary T.

    Kimberly B from Harrison Twp., MI recommends this vacation rental

    When getting ready to depart, we wanted to sweep the floors, and give the place a quick vacuum. We were unable to find a broom or vacuum. Also, the coffee pot was broken, which frustrated the morning coffee drinkers. One last tip. We arrived at night, and it was very dark. We almost gave up trying to find the lock box. Maybe include a note that it is on the pole leading up to the condo, and not on the door. Overall, the place was great for a large group, and very comfortable. I would recommend this property in the future.

    Kathy R from Bloomfield, Mi recommends this vacation rental

    We were very pleased with almost everything. we had a couple of issues, one being the paperwork did not have the entire address,so once we arrived at the condo we had to call the phone number we were given to be told which unit we were staying in. The
    unit itself was pretty clean but I did have to wipe down the refrigerator and cupboards(full of crumbs and spills) before I could place food in them. There were a lot of spiders (bug spray would have been nice had to kill about 5) and cobwebs that I had to
    clear away but I am sure that is probably due to how much time lapsed between renters. We spent close to 1/2 hour cleaning before we could put our things away. We definitely left it cleaner than when we arrived and would only suggest that you either supply
    garbage bags or let renters know they will need to bring them as the only bags we found on the premises were to small for the garbage can. Price of renting the condo could not be better, I have already recommended you and will continue to do so, we were all
    very comfortable and enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you so much for all you did to find us a nice place on such short noticed, this was for my brothers memorial and had a lot of people from out of state come in and everything worked out beautifully.

    We had stayed at the same place but a different townhouse a few years ago and this property had better outside area and more open spaces. The owners of the previous townhouse had more amenities but this one was overall a better fit for our family. It is a good value but do have to drive a little further
