    a guest from Riverview, MI recommends this vacation rental

    There was 8 of us staying at the Golden Summer home. Unfortunately all 8 cannot stay under one roof, 2 of us had to walk outside and stay above the garage, which smelled mildewy. There is only one full bathroom in the house. The house really needs to remove the washer and dry room and add a half bath. Also there is no dish washer. Concerned how clean the dishes were in cabinet. The Tank Alarm went off during our stay and we were very scared not sure what a Tank Alarm was. Chris in maintenance called us back the next morning to inform us not to worry and someone will be by to suck out the septic tank. The location is perfect; near Leland, Suttons Bay, Traverse City, Glen Arbor and Sleeping Bear Dunes. We enjoyed the Northern Latitude distillery at the north end of Lake Leelanau. We visited the Platte River and the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive under the National Park Services which had spectacular views of Lake Michigan. For us Michiganders we are blessed to live in such a beautiful state.

      We appreciate your feedback on Golden Summers. This home is well maintained by the owners so we are surprised there were so many issues. We do advertise that the guest house is separate. We have to keep windows closed after each guest but when a window is opened it clears the air. Being on a lake can often find an interior smelling musty after being closed up for a few days as is the case with this September reservation. Many homes in this area are on holding tanks which hold the septic and has to be pumped out and removed from the sight. The alarm goes off when it is close to having to be pumped out. We are sorry this startled you. Otherwise this home is comfy and charming.. The main bathroom was totally remodeled. There is a small bathroom in the guest house too.

    My entire family loved staying at Golden Summers. It was the perfect location to be near Sutton's Bay, Leeland, Glen Arbor and T.C. We loved having a bonfire every night and watching the boats or ducks on the lake. It was so relaxing. The cottage was very comfortable with really charming decorations and comfortable furniture. Everything about it was cute and clean!

    We would stay here again in a heart beat and would highly recommend to anyone.

    Our family enjoyed our stay at Golden Summers. We vacationed early June and the weather was still a bit cool for water activities, but we enjoyed the views immensely from the big windows that the property provides. Very nicely appointed and beautiful private setting--a shared lane but trees separate the houses. Our son loved the bunk bed with water views!
