    a guest from Wilmette, IL recommends this vacation rental

    The house accommodated our family of 10 pretty well although our daughter and her two children were a bit cramped in upstairs bedroom due to lack of storage. The dock easily accommodated a rental fishing boat from the RV park across the lake. Our grandchildren enjoyed the kayaks and we were able to easily launch our SUP/Windsurfer from the sand beach. Only drawbacks were a fussy, dirty gas grill and a missed garbage pickup.

    David A from Jenison, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Stay N Play-Lake Leelanau provided the perfect location for our family vacation which included our adult children from Michigan, California and Virginia. The layout of this home was great for lake front living and allowed some family separation when the grand baby needed to sleep. The HUGE dining table is great and allowed us all to sit as a group for meals. The kitchen was stocked with all the needed pots, pans and utensils needed. HOT TUB well it was great therapy for the muscles that hadn't been used for a couple of years after skiing and tubing on this beautiful lake.

    We stayed for a week and had a great time. The place was clean and there was plenty of room for all 10 of us. Our only complaint is that there were a lot of ants in the kitchen area. Other than that minor (to us) issue we had a great stay.

    • Manager Responded on 7/13/2017

      We are so happy that you had a great time, ants are stinkers but when we find out about them we get the traps out, and have in the property! Come back and see us again soon!

    Our family had a wonderful week at Stay N Play. The house had everything we could've possibly needed. The yard and beach were fantastic. We used the 4 kayaks often and Lake Leelanau is always great. The main bedroom king size bed was a little soft, so if you need a firm bed, switch into one of the other rooms.

    It was great! Grandmothers, parents,and kids ranging from 3 months to 10 years old. The property was beautiful; the sandy area and swallow water by the beach was a hit with the children. The deck was enjoyed by the adults. The house offered all the room we needed. The property felt secluded, but there was quick and easy access to Leland, Suttons Bay, and Traverse City. The week was enjoyed by all. the neighbors on the south side were very helpful and a pleasure to meet and talk with.

    Linda K from Schoolcraft, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Stay N Play was a perfect fit for our family! We had our adult kids and grandkids and the house accommodated us perfectly. We loved the long dining room table, and the grandkids loved the hot tub. Our grandkids spent a good amount of time fishing off the dock, with quite a bit of luck. The house was so well stocked, just about anything you might need was there. And we loved the location, quiet country setting, yet just twenty minutes or so from Suttons Bay
    or just a little farther to Leland, both great towns, abundant shopping and dining. We look forward to future vacations at Stay N Play! The management company was superb, very helpful, very friendly. Great vacation. A-plus!

    The house was clean, in a great location that was quiet but still close to towns and local attractions, plenty of space in the house for living, sleeping, eating, and relaxing. The property is well maintained and gorgeous, it was nice to have a hot tub on the property for those cooler days that the lake is out of the question. It was nice to have the canoes with life jackets included to go check out the lake, even a few fishing poles in the shed just needed to buy bait and you were set. The neighbors were nice and even loaned a few sand toys to the kids. Overall, a great place to stay!

    • Manager Responded on 7/5/2016

    a guest from Waterford, MI recommends this vacation rental

    The house is spacious and we would stay there again. Property was as described. The surrounding towns were fun to visit - and the wine tour...ah yes, very fun!! There were however a few issues... drain flies (fruit flies). They were horrible. The property knew about this problem as they left vinegar out for them....that does not help. There are solutions to this problem (profession/OTC chemicals). The lower level was dusty. Dust bunnies and dust on furniture (upstairs tables too). Other than those issues, it's a great location and nice place to stay at.

    • Manager Responded on 9/29/2015

      Thank you so much for your review and being our guest. As stated in many other reviews the fruit flies are part of life up north. This is the time of the year for fruit harvesting and we are surrounded by orchards & vineyards - with it comes fruit flies. We do leave notes in the rentals that address this. We will talk with the housekeeper about dusting better.

    A group of 12 women spent the weekend at the home - excellent location and experience. Only thing, we had no paper towels or toilet paper so had to go and purchase them nor did we have any kitchen towels. Only complaint were the fruit flies, they were terrible. Overall the house was just what we were looking for, the beach was beautiful (unfortunately, too cold to enjoy it)and lots of room for us women with no problems at all. I would definitely come back and rent the home again!

    • Manager Responded on 9/22/2015

      We are so sorry these items were not left for your use. Typically our homes are well stocked and have additional stock in a closet. Fruit flies are a battle this time of year. They are here because of all the fruit trees that surround this area. There is nothing to do to stop them. We do hope you will come again!

    This rental home was absolutely wonderful. The home provided everything a person could need. There were 3 families sharing the rental and we all had plenty of space to spread out. The beach area and shallow water was fantastic for our young son to swim. My older nieces enjoyed the row boat and kayaks! Each day ended with a relaxing camp fire and dip in the hot tub just what our entire family needed.

    a guest from Flushing, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We comfortably had 10 people (adults & older teens) in the home: family from TX, family from MI, & a couple from CA. Good lot size and home layout was perfect: 1 family per bedroom; dining table big enough for 10+ people (yay!); kitchen well stocked; plenty of chairs on deck and for use at firepit; comfy living room upstairs for adults, family room downstairs for kids (futons); strong WIFI. We didn't notice that the water had "rotten egg smell" (as stated someone's review), but we always bring our own drinking water up north, nor did we experience any problems with blowing fuses. The two Kayaks were used ALOT; water was too rough that week for the kids to use the row boat; we brought our fishing boat (definitely use public landing!); hot tub was clean and we used it often. They had sand brought in for a clean, small beach (1/3 the width of the lot) & a little bit in the lake. Beyond the sand, it's a little pebbly but not "yucky/murky" which can be typical for small lakes. This is a great lake for tubing/skiing/kayaking; we didn't fish, though. Perfect location: 10 min to Suttons Bay, 15 min to Leland, 20+ min to Traverse City, 20+ min to the dunes (BTW, avoid Boondocks Restaurant in Glen Arbor). One of our days was rainy - it was a game/cards day and still didn't feel cramped in the house; went to the movies at night in Suttons Bay. I would love to be a regular at this cottage and already have recommended it to friends.

    The cottage was beautiful and BIG!! The hot tub and all of the kid's toys available were fantastic! We did have problems with the power and blowing fuses if we ran the microwave. And the actual swimming space available was super small. The large beachie area narrowed down to a few feet of space of lake access. But the views were gorgeous and the cottage was fully stocked.

    This nice house is in one of the most ideal locations in Northern Michigan. It is close to both Traverse City and Sleeping Bear. We had so much to chose from as far as things to do. Swimming was great for the kids. We felt good that the water was not too deep but it was still fun. We all really liked the hot tub. The beds were good and the facilities were adequate. This is the best house we have rented in the last 10 years.
