    Linda L from Macomb, MI recommends this vacation rental

    My family had a wonderful Thanksgiving at the house. It was large but had a cozy feeling to the house,decorated to make you feel at home. We are always working, so it was nice to slow down, have a fire, play some boardgames and spend some quality family time together. The amenities of this house were perfect! We will be coming back again.

    Patricia W from Middleville, MI recommends this vacation rental

    This cottage provided us with a great place for a relaxing vacation. Most appreciated were the three bedrooms each with it's own bathroom. Improvements would be improving the porch with appropriate furniture and taking off the plastic window covers. The porch could be wonderful. As it is it is far from it. Better light at the dining table would be appreciated. It was almost impossible to play games there. Add a chair to the master bedroom along with a closet.

    • Manager Responded on 12/17/2015

      Thank you so much for your review. We will bring these suggestions to the attention of our owner. Thanks!

    a guest from Northville, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We are a group of moms who stayed at North Porch for a girls weekend break from our kids, and it was perfect! The house is immaculate and has a great "Up North" feel to it. The view was beautiful, and Long Lake was fun to explore on the provided kayaks and on a pontoon boat we rented (from a private owner) for a day. The kitchen is very well stocked. We spent one day wine tasting on Old Mission Peninsula, and the drive to Traverse City and to the wineries isn't too far. I definitely recommend this property.

      Nothing like a girlfriend get away from it all! We are pleased you enjoyed North Porch. We hope you will come again.

    Gina M from Englewood, CO recommends this vacation rental

    The North Porch was beautiful!! The house was spacious and clean (other than the screened porch). The kitchen was stocked with everything you needed. LOVED the gas stove!! One thing would of been helpful would of been black-out curtains in the bedrooms. The sun would beat in and wake us up early in the am. We loved the fire pit and the doc was nice since we rented a boat.

      Thank you for your review. We will be discussing the window treatments with the owner of this home for possible updates in 2016.

    Cheryl D from New York City, NY recommends this vacation rental

    Overall we had a great stay! The property management company was incredible and the house was spotless! My only complaint is how small the master beds are. The description said the upstairs bed was a queen but it was a full and very uncomfortable. The downstairs main master bed also seemed small and was quite hard. Otherwise the owners of the house seem like terrific people, with great taste and the unit was incredibly clean which was greatly appreciated :)

    North Porch is a beautiful, well appointed vacation home.
    The beautiful screened-in porch and large yard, allow you to enjoy Long Lake with a nice feeling of privacy.
    My family of 5 (3 teenagers) thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
    The large kitchen is very comfortable for meal preperation and dining.
    A billiard table kept my kids busy when they were not outside.
    Easy access to downtown Traverse City. Groceries available in near-by Interlochen.
    This home is a perfect vacation destination and we hope to return.
