    Karin S from Seven Hills, OH recommends this vacation rental

    We spent a perfect week here in this little cottage right on the beach. You can fall asleep to the sound of the waves and walk out of your bed onto the deck. The location is perfect, and at least this year they had enough beach to lay out your towels. The cottage is a little dated, but they're clearly making updates. The electric outlets and switches can be tricky, so watch out for that. Now, I mentioned this was perfect for 2 - it's enough space for us, but I'd hesitate with too many more people (especially on a rainy day). We used the second bedroom for storage, since we didn't want stuff underfoot and it kept things neat. If you have 1 kid (or 2 who don't mind sharing a bed), I think that would be fine, but more than that (or more than maybe 1 adult you really like) I think would make it feel like you're on top of each other. But for us, it was perfect - the trees provide seclusion and everything was lovely. I'd love to try to keep this place secret, but I have to be honest and say it's just wonderful!

    Our second stay here as the location is awesome! Great week but so disappointed to discover on arrival that Mother Nature had eroded the beach to the point that the beach stairs had dangerously separated from top of sand embankment. Many thanks to Up North folks and Andrew the handyman for quickly repairing the stairs. Wonderful location but house could benefit from some TLC.

      Thank you for staying with us again. We are working on freshening up the cottage so we hope you come back soon.

    Claire W from Highland Park, IL recommends this vacation rental

    The location of this property was fantastic and the freedom it allows you to enjoy with your dogs is also great. Your own private beach almost. We went with young kids who also enjoyed playing and swimming at their leisure (weather permitting).

    The property is great location wise but has been left a little to long on the up keep. It is pretty basic and super dated with a lot of lights and sockets that don't work or might work sometimes! The right TV remote is missing so it takes a bit of effort to work and the shower curtain is not fixed to the wall so watch out for the 'fall on your head moment'. The wifi is great although all that said this is a good 'settle into a book place'. The mattress on the master bed is very tired and soft so back problems will struggle.

    Hooks on the wall for coats and bags and under the property for beach towels etc would be super helpful.

    As a guest you forgive some of the down sides due to the location but I think it would serve the owner well to improve a few things.

    Overall this was a great week. The cabin was much as listing/reviews mention. Very clean, well stocked and a great location. Arcadia is a small, quiet town (no grocery or gas). But only 10 miles from Frankfort. Be sure to try Stormcloud Brewery there. Furniture/mattress could be a bit more comfortable. And better lighting would help. But not enough of an issue to stop us from coming back. We very much enjoyed our time.

    James R from Hudson, OH recommends this vacation rental

    My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Good Morning Arcadia. The house is very cool, and has a lot of near mid-century fixtures and overall feel. I wouldn't call it luxurious, but it is exactly the kind of place we like. The beach was beautiful and the views were spectacular. One of the bedrooms has a bed that looks right out at the lake. We watched the sun and moon set over lake Michigan every night.

    The house was very clean when we arrived. It would be perfect for a couple or a small family. If you have a pup, this house is great for them too. There is a wrap around deck, which we spent a lot of time on.

    The house is very private and the neighbors that we did meet were very friendly, and also liked dogs. We can't recommend this house enough, and will certainly be back.

    Thanks for such a wonderful experience.

    Our stay at Good Morning Arcadia was outstanding. The beach was beautiful and quiet. The cabin is not updated, but it does not leave you wanting for more.
    We traveled with our dog, and couldn't have asked for a better place to enjoy with fido. There is plenty of space for running and swimming. So don't forget your four legged friend if you book this property.

    house was clean, a little spartan, but the fresh sheets/towels were great. Some plugs/lights inconsistent, but otherwise house was great. Access to beach needs steps since water so low. Living area furniture was uncomfortable - wouldn't be terribly expensive to get 4 decent chairs and a couch that could pull out.

    This cottage was everything we were looking for. It had a stunning view, was perfectly cozy for our little family of four and had all the amenities you would expect from a seasonal cottage. Being able to walk 50 yards to the beach was great, and we were able to include our dog, which was a bonus. For the value, you won't find a better view in northern Michigan.

    Classic Lake Michigan beach experience....While the home was somewhat small for our family, the location and views from the main bedroom, living room and deck couldn't be beat! Beach access was a few feet through the dunes and the beach was idyllic, with perfect sand and the ability to walk for quite a ways. We visited the nearby towns of Frankfort and Onekama, which provided great opportunity to walk around and visit the local lighthouses and attractions. We ate at Dinghy's restaurant and Papanos Pizza in Frankfort, both had great food for great prices! We have rented several homes up and down the Lake Michigan coast and this was by far the best location and had the best beach!

    We had a great time at "Good Morning Arcadia". The location and views are fantastic. The lodging is nothing special but was fairly clean and had everything we needed. The real draw is it's location with Lake Michigan right outside the door. It's also close to Manistee and Traverse City, (and right down the street from Arcadia Bluffs).

    James and Laura S from Dublin, OH recommends this vacation rental

    This house provides a perfect, private getaway spot, especially for a couple with pet(s). The house was very clean, the furnishings simple but comfortable, and the views and location exceptional. We spent part of every day on the beach with our dogs, swam the calm blue waters of Lake Michigan, and watched gorgeous sunsets from the deck. Just wonderful.
    A couple of issues: The trash disposal/pick-up situation is not working. When we stayed, all of the unit's trash cans were already crammed full & out on M22-200 yards or so from the house. All we could do was load our bags in the car & add them to the overflow. Not acceptable.
    Also, there is a board (maybe two) on the deck, lakeside, near the railing, that feels weak & "mushy" to the step. Needs to be checked & replaced.
    Overall, it's a nice, private house in a great location, and we've already recommended it to a couple of friends. Thanks for a great getaway.

      We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We are so sorry for the inconvenience. Garbage cans are supplied and left on the road to assure pickup and as well there are "yellow bags" in the house that we supply and these will be picked up by the garbage service as well. We will make sure in the future this is clear so all who stay will have a perfect vacation.

    Slow down, catch your breath, enjoy life. Just laying in bed hearing the surf or bobbing up and down on the waves you enjoy doing nothing.
    Miles of beach, miles of views. Quaint cottage with all you'll need. TV, Cable, Internet are provided but seldom used. Deserted beach, short easy walk from house provides your escape. Doing nothing for a week, remembering it forever. A late night storm rolls through that you can see coming from miles away, the fear of beauty. If you need to do nothing this is the nothing to do.

    Our family had been looking for a beach home similar to a property we had rented in Arcadia in 2009, so imagine our delight in finding this beach property just 3 houses down the beach. Although more rustic, the location is ideal for us, quite literally "off the beaten track!" Plus, we could bring our 3 water loving dogs, so what's not to like? We love the beautiful beach and the sunsets and how secluded this area is yet still within easy driving distance of our favorite "Up North" activities. The house is spotless, and very well stocked although oven mitts, a cutting board, and a frying pan would have been great. The only misstep for us was the sewage smell that emanated from the ground around the house, and the fact that there appeared to be at least an inch of standing water in the laundry room on the ground floor. Because of the water, we never used the washer and dryer. If the sewage issues are addressed, we would definitely return next year!

    The location was great. Not a lot of people on the beach and GREAT sunsets. There were many hikes nearby and great mountain biking. The "road" going in was interesting very bumpy would not recommend a low to the ground car. Overall I would recommend this property. There are a few things that may need to be need work. The electrical could be updated and more working lights. There is not any air condition even though it was listed. It is a good place for two people and a pet.

    • Manager Responded on 6/27/2013

      The road that takes you to Good Morning Arcadia is indeed bumby...we think it is a part of the experience. If we grade or pave the rent will go up so we choose to leave it as it is. It is safe! Not sure what the concern is about electric. we will check it out. We will add a couple more lights. We do not want to leave anyone in the dark.

    Just as isolated and secluded as we had wished for. The dishes were in need of a bit of scrubbing before we could use them but all in all the cottage was clean and in good order. We video taped the condition of everything upon our arrival and the same when we were locking up to ensure that everything was in the same condition or better than we found it. We were unsure if there was a 'designated' campfire area so we chose to skip a campfire either on the beach or in back of the cottage, though we saw evidence that others had burned wood. Wish there would have been clearer instructions on where we could have had a campfire. We brought our own pots and pans and glad we did so because their was no frying pan for bacon just one for pancakes. Lots of details were included such as binoculars, beach chairs (under the deck). We left a bit of wood for the next guests. The bed in the west-facing bedroom was very comfortable and we enjoy quite the light show while laying in bed with the curtains open while the big storm moved in. Saw only a handful of folks walking past on the beach but otherwise it was very peaceful and very quite. This was just the perfect place for solitude and relaxation. Oh, if one is driving a low sports car they may have difficulty getting down Sorrenson Road as it is really little more that an unkept 2-track with weeds two feet high. We were very cautious and very slow and made it down the road without too many scratches or damage to the undercarriage. Property managers should be way more clear about what that "road" actually is. All in all though, a delightful find and a place we will gladly return to in the future.

    • Manager Responded on 6/19/2013

      Thank you so much for sharing. We will make appropriate changes to make the next visit even better. The two track will be trimmed up too. Please come and visit us again!
