    Rob D from Flint, Mi does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The cabin was neat and clean. The twin bunks had sheeets that didn't exactly fit the bed so when you got in it you basically ended up on a bare mattress. The queen bed was great. The cabin had a humidifier running due to some damp funny odor, that was a bit strange. I made our reservations last minute so North Rentals had to act fast to get all the info and have the place ready. I would definitely use North rentals again as overall it was a positive experience. The cabin was nice it just needed a few things tweaked.

    a guest from Harper Woods , MI recommends this vacation rental

    A Little Bit of Cherry was a cozy little cottage in a quiet subdivision between Northport and Leelenau State Park. The place was clean and well looked after. It was an ideal setting for going wine tasting or visiting the nearby beach. A must is a morning visit to Barb's Bakery in Northport for some world famous cinnamon rolls or twists. We found it a very relaxing spot to unwind and enjoy and would recommend it to anyone.

    Kim C from Ypsilanti, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Very nice cottage. If coming with older/tall kids, the bunk bed/trundle will be tight, but our family of 5 still had room to spread out. Kitchen was well stocked with cookware/dishes/utensils. Closets held a nice variety of board games. There is also a TV (limited channels/reception) & DVD player (BYO DVDs). Nice area, short drive to many places in the Leelanau Peninsula. Just a few miles down the road, visit the Leelanau State Park for an awesome view of the sunrise/sunset. Nearby Northport has a nice sized grocery store & Barb's Bakery, also in Northport, should be your every morning stop for a delicious baked good, especially the cinnamon twist. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

    a guest from Fowlerville, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Little Bit of Cherry was a cute, quaint place to stay. My family and I enjoyed our stay but wished we would have been a little closer to town. We have stayed in Northport for many years and value being within walking distance to everything. The cottage itself was nice and had everything we needed. We were a little disappointed upon arrival to find popped balloons and old glow sticks left in the kids room, which told us that cleanliness was not a priority. The bathroom was clean and it was a plus to have a washer and dryer!

    • Manager Responded on 1/8/2018

      We are so sorry that the cleaning was not up to standards I wish you would have called so we could have taken care of it and had it be perfect for you, hope you will stay again!

    Very reasonably priced rental cottage in a tranquil community about 5 miles north of Northport. 200 yard walk to a community beach on the eastern coast of Lake Michigan offering great sunrises. 100 yard walk to a trail head for nature walk within the community. Cottage was very clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. You are a little bit off the beaten path but if you are looking for a serene experience this is a good cottage. And it is pet friendly.

    Aaron W from Portage, Mi recommends this vacation rental

    The Little Bit of Cherry property was a very good rental property. Everything was as described and more.

    The property was nicely cleaned and prepped for us and contained all the dishes and utensils we needed. We were unaware as to how recently the house was updated, which was a pleasant surprise. A photo book was even in the living room showing the owners performing the many updates to the house.

    The reason I did not give 5 stars all around was for a few minor reasons:

    1) Some light bulbs were burnt out, but this was easily resolved by spares in the closet.

    2) The smoke detectors were chirping low battery. Thankfully I had 2 spare 9 volt batteries on me to resolve the problem and to stop my dogs from going nuts.

    3) We had a couple dishes which were not cleaned fully, but that was easily resolved as well.

    This property did not have air conditioning, but many fans were throughout the property and the house stayed pretty cool during the day with the windows shut. The screened deck at night was great and our dogs thoroughly enjoyed looking outside while we ate and played cards.

    Something we didn't expect was the beach access just 5 minutes away, a very easy walk. There is also a trail head a couple minutes away from the property as well and offers a few different routes through the woods.

    Overall we were very pleased with the property and will certainly consider it again for our next trip. Northport was very quiet, relaxing and peaceful....a very good town!

    The cottage was cute and very clean. We were pretty satisfied with most aspects of our stay. The only problem was that we were told that there was a sofa bed available for our son to sleep on. This was not exactly the case. We ended up having our daughter sleep on the couch and it was on the last day that we discovered the trundle bed that pulled out from under the bunk beds!

The cabin was located within a nice community and had a nice common area with a little beach and playground equipment. We would love to come back again soon!

    Mary H from Roseville, MI recommends this vacation rental

    My sister and I really enjoyed out Up North vacation. There were only a few problems. The cable television that was promised never worked the whole time we were there, even after several calls to the management company. Thankfully, my sister and I grew up in a different time and playing games and just hanging out was fine. If were would have had children with us, there would have been a problem. Also the lights in the kitchen flickered whenever we had more than one electric appliance working at the same time. The bathroom set up is also a little hard to maneuver. It might be fine for someone who is very thin and tall, but we're short and a little on the chubby side. Thankfully, I'm taller than my sister and could adjust the shower head to aim down more. You might want to include a step stool at this property. Finally, I wish you would have included a map of the subdivision that it was in. We never did find a way to the lake that didn't infringe on someone else's property. Over all, it was a nice vacation, but it needs work for everyone to enjoy this property.

    This cute little home is in the woods which was fine for us. There are neighbors, but yard is wooded so a private feel. The property is one block from beach access. It has a wonderful, private, large screened-in porch which was great as there were mosquitos. Kitchen is well supplied. House was clean. Great property choice if you wish to bring your dog. I left a pair of earrings and contacted the management company, they said they would get back to me but unfortunately never heard back from them. That was the only disappointment in the rental experience.

    My parents bought this lot and built this cabin. I have always wished they had built on the lake. They were one of the first buyers. Good times, such a beautiful area. We did the Empire canoe trip, sleeping bear, Fishers, and the light house. The cabin is fantastic! The Swails did a great job of cleaning it up. I couldn't believe how nice it was. Thank you!

    love northport. this was a great stay with just two exceptions. it smelled very musty and with windows open all three days, it never got better. it was clean, but needed a good spring cleaning in out of eye areas. top of refrigerator was very dirty and garbage can was moldy. but generally just a great little house in a very nice quiet area.

      We are sorry about the housekeeping issues & for the future make sure these items are not missed. We will look into a dehumidifier to help with the mustiness.

    The cottage was very small and cute. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom recently remodeled. There is a beautiful park and beach at the end of the road, but I wasn't sure we had access to this (we used it anyway).
    There is a nice hiking trail near the house. The biggest draw back was how far from town the house is. It is a 10 minute ride into Northport.

    This cottage was very nice and had every thing you would need and decorated in the theme of the cottage name. Only thing we noticed that did bother us some was that it did have a musty smell and might be helpful to have some air freshners to help that. Screened in porch was very nice. Location not far from the park and beach and a great neighborhood for walking and biking. Overall was a very pleasant place to stay.

    This was our first time renting a home. Not sure or clear if we were suppose to call that we had arrived or depart from the home. The home was a little bit far but at the end of the day was glad to relax in a nice clean home. It was better than getting a stuffy hotel room. Thank you for such a wonderful clean and cutely decorated home. If we get up to Michigan again will certainly give you a call. Thank you again.

    Wonderful location, and the house was very nicely decorated and thoughtfully stocked with the supplies we would need. That was excellent! We love the screened-in porch! All appliances were in great shape.
    One concern: The house smelled of mold or mildew, and we wondered if there was dampness somewhere, like the roof.
    Other than that concern, we would love to book again and stay longer this time!

      The screened porch has been updated this fall. It is even better! The dampness typically dissipates when the windows are open.

    it was a cozy cabin. just right for a family of 4. it was nice to be able to bring the dog along too. Luckily we didn't need an air conditioner but it would be nice in hotter weather. The bathroom could use some finishing due to bare wood around the water heater was ugly and dirty. otherwise it was a nice little cabin.
