    Jessica L from St. Clair, MI recommends this vacation rental

    The home is very large and accommodates a lot of people. It is a little older than expected and not spotless clean when we arrived. We are used to the camping experience so this didn't bother us but for the price you pay you would think it would be perfect. The two bathrooms upstairs are right next to each other, a very odd layout for the house, very divided up. My only recommendation is for the cleaning staff to clean floors a little harder the kitchen wasn't even swept when we arrived and there are broken window shades in the basement which makes it very hot at 6am.

    This place is absolutely wonderful! The view is phenomenal. Some road noise but you get use to it.

    Would be helpful if there were instructions on how to adjust heating and cooling system. The smaller bedroom on main floor was too warm.

    • Manager Responded on 4/15/2017

      We are thrilled you had a great time and look forward to your next visit! We will post clearer instructions for the heating.

    Jen F from Jackson, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Our book club (seven ladies) came up for the weekend and Baydream was an absolute pleasure to stay in. The view was amazing and beautiful to wake up to every day! It was great to have so many different areas to hang out in. The kitchen was well-equipped and everything was in order. Perhaps our only complaints were some of the tidiness issues - the windows weren't very clean, and there was a broken tile downstairs that one of us tripped on. It would have been nice to have patio furniture since it was a lovely weekend, but we understand it being unseasonably warm! Baydream is a great property and we would all recommend it!

    • Manager Responded on 4/28/2016

      We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your thoughts on issues at Baydream. Yes typically outdoor furniture is placed in mid to late May. Windows get done in May as well. Always battling the weather in Northern Michigan.

    Our 10 person dinner group enjoyed their first time visit to Baydream Believer last weekend. Gathering spaces were perfect. Views of water relaxing. Kitchen clean and accommodating. We hiked the Timberlee Ski hill and the state hospital trails to great delight. Tom's was close for quick grocery runs. Downside? Unkempt windows and multi pesky fly action indoors. otherwise, wonderful spot!

    • Manager Responded on 11/12/2015

      Thank you for staying with us. We have attended to the windows and the pesky fruit flies are gone until next fall.

    • Manager Responded on 12/17/2015

      Thank you for your review. We have added additional sleeping pillows. The lower level is below grade and typically is much cooler.

    My only complaint is that there was a lot of bugs and ants inside, but once those were taken care of wasn't bad.

    Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Baydream Believer. The view was absolutely breathtaking, and the home was full of natural light. Though the home was a little tricky to find if you're not paying attention, it was conveniently just minutes away from downtown Traverse City. Our only complaints were related to the availability of kitchen cleaning supplies, but this is relatively minor in the grand scheme of things. You won't be disappointed if you choose to stay at the Baydream Believer!

    Everything about the experience was wonderful. I loved the location and the entire rental. All of it's features were great and the reservation and management was a breeze to work with. The management team was very helpful. There was one exception - the water. We found that the water was noticeably well water. I do not have an issue with Well Water - but the smell of the water in the kitchen was so bad, it seemed that a new filter was definitely needed - or this need was way overdue. I understand that well water does have a smell - and I am used to that smell/taste - however the stench was not a regular well water smell, it was way way worse.

    a guest from Macomb, MI recommends this vacation rental

    This home was perfect for our trip to visit the wineries in and around Traverse City. We especially loved the retro decor, and called it " the Dean Martin house" all weekend. The house was large, very clean and included everything g we needed to cook a meal. We enjoyed a fire on the beach every night while looking at the stars and the beautiful bay. The beach is very rocky and mucky so I would not recommend it for anyone who wants to spend a lot of time swimming.

    The house was beautiful and the location was awesome. Being right on the bay was wonderful but it would have been nice to know ahead of time that the beach was rocky and not suited for swimming. That was a very minor issue compared to the beautiful views and the wonderful sunrises. We would definitely visit again!!

    Absolutely gorgeous view! Convenient location (although high traffic area). Home was clean with modern amenities but with a cool, retro, artistic style. Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin would feel right at home! Water inside the home pretty smelly, but that's to be expected right on the lake. Visit Up North - particularly Bonnie - couldn't have been more helpful. Would definitely stay at this property again.

    and get in matter of minutes). Thanks!
