    Plenty of room for 8 of us and fur baby. Deer in the front yard in the evening. Quality linens and comfy beds. Kids were happy with the wifi and tv.
    No wine glasses this close to wine country?

    • Manager Responded on 2/22/2018

      Oops. Seems past guests used up all the wine glasses. We will certainly stock wine glasses this week. So sorry about that.

    a guest from Claysville, PA recommends this vacation rental

    We were very pleased with the condition of the home. We utilized the front porch for morning coffee, and had a fire out back on four of the evenings we were there. The location is wonderful and we saw some wildlife around the cabin during our stay. Overall, it is a pleasant property and just right for a group of 4-5.

    Cathy F from Lakewood, OH recommends this vacation rental

    We just returned from our first visit to the Sleeping Bear Dunes area and this house was perfect for our family of five. The putt putt in the basement was a huge hit for our three kids and we made good use of the kayaks and canoes on the lake, just a short walk from the house. The Trading Post down the street is a easy walk and has everything you need (milk, firewood, etc.). The house is located just a short drive from Empire and Frankfurt, and most importantly, Sleeping Bear Dunes and the Glen Arbor areas. We visited the dune climb several times, hiked around the Ghost Forest, and enjoyed a bite to eat at Boondocks in Glen Arbor. We kayaked the Crystal River (so clear and peaceful!) and rode our bikes along the Heritage Trail. Traverse City is only 20 -30 minutes away - an easy drive and a great little town on the water.

    The house itself has everything you need for a family of five - propane grill and fire pit in the backyard (we happened to bring our hammock too and there were two trees that seemed to be waiting for it!), beautiful front porch for morning coffee, two bedrooms on the first floor, and one larger bedroom on the second with a private bathroom. There's a neat little area upstairs with an X-Box and futon too. Washer/dryer in the basement (bring your own detergent). There is no blender but we brought one.

    Lucky T from Milwaukee, WI recommends this vacation rental

    My family had to travel for Christmas rather unexpectedly this year. My younger sister and I both brought our families and had a wonderful time in the cabin. There were nine of us all together and we had plenty of room. The mini putt putt course in the basement was a hit with every member of our party, and it was delightful to have a nice big kitchen to cook and share meals in. Visit Up North was easy to work with, too. The staff was friendly and knowledgable. Thanks for everything!

    a guest from Indianapolis, IN recommends this vacation rental

    Overall not bad, description and pictures do not show all the details. For instance claw tub on first floor very hard for an elderly person to get into and use. Very nice master bedroom and bath on 2nd floor though it is open to below. No access to garage to place bikes or extra items instead of hauling to basement. Location is OK but not great and street sign is not very clear since they are just on small wooden signs, would have been nice if that was shown. Up North management company does not respond to email questions since they really do not know much about the properties they are managing outside of Traverse City. Beds are nice and it does have 3 bedrooms with queen beds which sleeps 6 comfortably plus a full size futon in the loft area for 2 more. If you have more than it is a couch or I guess an air bed in the basement where they do have room.

    • Manager Responded on 8/19/2016

      Thank you for your review. We will look at including more details. We are physically in all of our rentals and try to represent them as they are. From time to time details can be missed as there are hundreds of details in a home. We do not make garages available on most homes. Many personal items of the owners are stored there. We will mark tings better for locating the rental.

Overall we had a great time and very pleased with the cabin. Will definitely recommend staying here!

    We had a wonderful stay at the House on Hickory! There was more than enough room for a family of four plus visitors. The house is fully stocked with cups, plates, silverware, fans, bedding, etc.. which was wonderful, and nicely cleaned too. The mini golf in the basement was a huge hit for the kids. There were some cobwebs, and bugs here and there but that just added to the woodsy feel of the cabin. The upstairs bathroom was large with a nice shower. The only downside is there wasn't a (sandy) beach nearby but we found Peterson beach on Lake MI which was wonderful! I am impressed with the rental agency as they made staying there very easy, and checked in to make sure everything was ok. Very nice vacation! thank-you.

    Tia B from Glouster, OH recommends this vacation rental

    The inside of the house was clean and comfortable but the outside definitely needed some attention. The front and back were covered in cobwebs and dirt. We spent an hour spraying down the porch so we could sit outside and enjoy it. Also, the lawn had not been mowed in quite some time. The location is somewhat remote but close enough to amenities, which we loved. Overall, I would recommend the stay.

    We were so pleased with our accomodations. It met our expectations and our immediate needs. We encountered some troubling wasps nests and on Sunday, within an hour of our notfication, the pest company arrived! We enjoyed a good chat with him about the area and no more wasps. The communication from visit up north was incredible as we had a rather bad storm pass through. We felt very well attended to. Lovely place, well located.

    There is no real access to the lake. Even though the boats are there, you couldn't easily use them with that 6 - 8 feet of open space. Drainage and water pressure in downstairs bath is not good. Upstairs bath is great. As to last question maybe I would recommend it to a friend.

    We had a wonderful time at Home on Hickory. We were in the Honor area for a family reunion with 5 other families. Home on Hickory was clean, comfortable and had all we needed with the exception of a few kitchen things...like a second rack in the oven and some baking pans. The boats were a nice addition. The front porch swing was a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the birds singing. Putt-putt course in the basement was enjoyed by all ages. I'd recommend Home on Hickory.

    First time at this property. Nice location to head to either Empire Beach or the Dune Climb or the location where the Platte River empties into Lake Michigan and you can play in the water. Place needed cleaning when we arrived...mainly a good dusting inside and the outside furniture should have been cleaned and dusted as well. For some unknown reason, the cleaning person left the clean sheets and pillowcases on the beds so that we could put them on ourselves! Drains in the lower bathroom running very slow and blinds in one of the downstairs bedrooms do not function at all. Downstairs bath had someones hair under the bath mat (not ours!). Exterior windows need a good cleaning for sure. We rent our place in FL and know what to look for, others may not be so picky but the place needs a better cleaning crew. Beautiful place though and a great location!
