    a guest from Okemos, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great experience at King of the Hill this summer. It was in a convenient location, and was very clean with plenty of room for a group of 6 including children. The kitchen was well-stocked with many spices for cooking. The gas stove was a nice welcome. The only complaint about the kitchen was the faucet in the sink - the handle needs to be adjusted so the water can be turned off properly in the off position. The waterfall was not working during our stay, but that was not a real problem. Beds were very comfortable. The only drawback to the location was the traffic noise which could be heard from inside the house - more of a problem if windows are open. We really liked the flexibility of being able to rent for less than a week, making it more cost-effective for shorter stays. We did have temporary problems with running out of hot water, but it only lasted 12 hours. The rental company seems to have fixed the issue. Overall, I would recommend this rental to those interested in a city location, conveniently located to a wide variety of vacation interests.

    The King of the Hill is a beautiful home! Enjoyed drinking coffee on the front porch! The traffic is a little noisy but we didn't mind it. We visited downtown Traverse City...Sleeping Bear Dunes....drove through Suttons Bay, Northport and Leland. Beautiful area! Great wineries and breweries in the area too! Had an awesome vacation with the family! Thanks for sharing your home!

    The property was beautiful, with ample room for parking and sitting outside. The home was even more gorgeous in person than in the pictures, with everything we could ever need and more. I would definitely recommend staying here, and hope to again soon!

    a guest from Fennville, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great time. The kitchen was fabulous with everything that we could possibly need for meal preparation. The living room and kitchen table with kitchen access was wonderful. Everything was clean and we felt like we were in our own homes. We loved that it snowed and was cozy warm for us. The only down-side was the driveway was steep and we had a very difficult time because nothing was plowed. Again, it was winter and to be expected but a suggestion for Visit Up North might be to make sure the properties are plowed after a snowfall.

      Oh dear! The snow plow must have missed this one. We are so sorry. If we are alerted to issues we will take care of them asap.

    a guest from Muskegon, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Felt a bit like royalty staying here. However the locks were a challenge. Lighting switches were very confusing. Would have been great to use the hot tub, was not available to our knowledge. Rugs were a bit dingy and patio furniture was wet and cup of cigarette buts were on the deck. Water pressure wasn't great. With that being said everything else was fantastic! Beds, showers, decor, fireplaces, kitchens, location. Weird neighbor passed the house about 20 times and the driveway is on a steep hill. But again very, very luxurious place. Could have stayed much longer!!

    • Manager Responded on 12/2/2014

      We are very sorry about the weird neighbor. There is not a hot tub at this location fyi. We are sorry for any issues that you had at King of the Hill. Thank you for staying with us and please come again.

    It was great! My family loved the house. We are a large family. We could be together in the kitchen and living room , yet get away to our own bedrooms.
    Loved being central to everything. From the wineries to shopping.5

    This property was beautiful! Wonderful layout that made you feel right at home! The location was great! Close enough to downtown and restaurants. The only downfall was that it is on a fairly busy road and you could hear the traffic if the windows were open. I would highly recommend this property to rent!

    Jake B from Grand Rapids, MI recommends this vacation rental

    This place was great. It was my wife and I and three other couples. Plenty of space. Loved the front porch to sit on and chat. The only downside is that the house is about halfway up a hill on a fairly busy road, so road noise was significant. Didn't keep us up at night, but was annoying to talk over when sitting on the porch. Overall, a great place.

    King of the Hill is a great home. It is an updated, comfortable home that was perfect for our needs. We will not hesitate to try and rent this home when we visit Traverse City again. We would like to thank the Kings for the opportunity to rent their home.

    The home was beautiful. It met our every need and we were thrilled to stay there. It was perfect for the six of us, from the sleeping arrangements to the huge master bath. We were going home to count our pennies and see if we can afford to buy it! (Maybe in our dreams).

    Sunlit days on the picturesque porch. Secret backyard hide-aways, Scottish mist through an open window. Showers big enough for a family of four. The gourmet kitchen and washer and dryer. A place to write. A space to dream. Roomy rooms and everything first class. King of the Hill you are the Queen of my heart!

    a guest from Brooklyn, NY recommends this vacation rental

    I visited (from New York City) with my mom, sister-in-law and nieces (from down state Michigan), and we all had the best time at King of the Hill. The best part of the house is the gorgeous kitchen, which is equipped with anything and everything you need. It's also a great house for entertaining in general. Our best times were spent cooking and visiting in the kitchen/living space, and enjoying the gorgeous porches. Highly recommend this home and Traverse City. It was a very memorable and effortless experience all-around.

    Josh C from Chicago, IL recommends this vacation rental

    We had a fantastic time at the King of the Hill. The house was in a very convenient location for all of the things that we wanted to do in Traverse City. Most importantly the common spaces of the house, especially the front porch, really provided the group with a place to relax together. One thing to mention is that there is a piano in the main living room. This was great for us because my partner plays piano and we were able to sing along. What a nice surprise! The house is fantastic for bringing a few families together. We hope to be back next year!

    We visited Traverse City with two other couples. King of the Hill was a perfect place for us to stay, it was a beautiful spacious house and very close to everything. The first night we had a fire in the outdoor firepit. The second night we cooked a great meal in the beautiful kitchen that was stocked with everything we needed to cook our meal...except the food :) The house was surrounded by trees which were changing colors. It was a very nice setting. The only thing we noticed was loud traffic in the morning since it is off a busy street.

    a guest from Worthington, OH recommends this vacation rental

    Had a wonderful stay at King of the Hill in Traverse City. Great location with easy access to downtown, hiking trails and wineries. The house is completely updated with 2 patios in back to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. Kitchen is stocked with plenty of cookware and dishes. The only negative is the noise from the busy street where the house is located.
