    a guest from Bloomfield Hills, MI recommends this vacation rental

    The “Lake Escape-Lake Leelanau” cottage was filled with pleasant surprises. It was clean and more spacious than imagined, the bathroom was even a nice size, the water was drinkable, the linens and towels were of good quality, nicely decorated, really nice flat screen TV with cable, the four season room overlooking the lake was fabulous, and the property was very quiet and private – woods on one side, and the neighbors on the other were not there when we were, but shrubs pretty much hid their property anyway. Unfortunately, the weather was cold and rainy just about every day and we couldn’t enjoy being on the water, so can’t comment on the swimming conditions. From the little we could see, it appeared there were a few logs on the lake bottom around the dock area and the water seemed slightly murky. The view was gorgeous, though, and there was a lot of boat traffic on the one good weather day. The only criticism we had was there were no instructions on how to turn on the furnace, but luckily my husband figured it out, the a/c unit kept flashing because the filter needed to be changed (it was too cold for us to even use it), and there was no wi-fi (but it was actually pretty nice to be “unplugged”. Up North Vacation Rentals was great to work with – even called the day after we arrived to make sure everything was okay. Loved the cottage and area, and we definitely will be back!

    Karla H from Rock Island, IL recommends this vacation rental

    Loved the house. You can hardly call it a cabin. Perfect location on the lake. Well protected from the weather since we had a boat at the dock. Easy access to all our favorite spots (Leland (Rick's at the Cove), Suttons Bay and Omena. The staff at Vacation Rentals were so easy to deal with. Especially Bonnie. Great two weeks!! We'll be back!!

    The house was perfectly located. We loved the sunroom, the dogs loved wading in the lake and we liked fishing off the dock. The house is centrally located to all the attractions. Dealing with Visit Up North was seamless from start to finish. We would definitely rent this property again.

    This was our fourth year at Lake Escape. The home is clean and fully equipped. We love that we can dock the families two boats on the property. Our grandaughter enjoyed the small sandy beach and the private back yard is perfect for our dogs. The home is a great location for many surrounding sights.

    We have been very impressed with this home, as we have stayed there for 3 years in a row! The home has a great yard and a perfect dock. It has all of the amenities that we would ever need. Overall, this is an excellent property!

    Working with "Visit Up North Vacation Rentals" has also been great. They are always so friendly and helpful on the phone that I always hang up with a smile :)

    a guest from Ypsilanti, MI recommends this vacation rental

    The hammock was wonderful and the sun porch had beautiful views of the lake. We enjoyed using the canoe, rowboat, and paddleboat. The interior had some recent updates, but still had a casual, functional feel. The lake is gorgeous. One thing to know is that you can walk out very far from the shore and still only be waist deep--no jumping off the dock. This was fine for us since we have a small child. We had a relaxing stay!

    a guest from Huntington Woods, Mi does not recommend this vacation rental.

    We enjoyed the lakefront a lot. Not so much the interior. Except for the sun room, it was dark and old. The beds were older. The lighting in the kitchen poor. There were abundant towels, blankets and sheets (all newer). The main room ceiling fan was out of commission, regrettable with 90+ degree temps. Wish the inside matched the outside.

    • Manager Responded on 5/28/2013

      We continue to address items with our owner. The ceiling fan is in good working order.

    a guest from Franklin, Ohio recommends this vacation rental

    We really enjoyed our vacation at Lake Leelanau. In addition to using the paddleboat and canoe, we rented kayaks for the week and a jet ski for a day and the service was friendly and had no problems getting to the cottage.
    The cottage itself was clean and just fine for us. It's an older home in need of updating, but the yard was beautifully maintained with easy access to the lake. It was peaceful and quiet. We took our dog with us , and she gives it a paws up!

    a guest from Cinncinatti, OH recommends this vacation rental

    This home's property is amazing! Love the yard, both fire pits, the wooded areas with small foot bridges and the sandy area to launch boats or just play in. The home itself was oddly set up as the bathroom opened right up into the eating area. The kitchen was poorly equipped and the bedrooms definitely need new carpet. It could use some freshing up but these reasons would not keep me from staying there again. We had a wonderful vacation!!

    • Manager Responded on 5/28/2013

      Good news carpeting in bedrooms was updated spring 2013.
