    a guest from Danvers, IL recommends this vacation rental

    There were 4 couples on this trip...was great to have 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms although none of the bathrooms had an electrical outlet. Very hard for the women to get ready in the mornings. There was a musty smell to the place, the lower rooms were worse and one had a very strong odor to it. Was listed as each bedroom having wall air conditioners but the two lower bedrooms didn't. We went at a cooler time so it worked out okay.
    Other than these issues the place was great. Was out in the middle of nowhere but centrally located to most towns and activities around the area. We had a great time with friends and site seeing northern Michigan.

    There were 8 adults and 6 children in our group and it worked great staying in the Sweet Life. Lots of space for everyone and we all had our own bathroom too. Could have used more towels, both in the bathrooms and in the kitchen. It was well stocked and comfortable. No AC in the downstairs rooms so it was a little stuffy to sleep.

    Overall it was an awesome stay. Cabins were very well maintained and well stocked. Met our expectations.
    A pet friendly place would have made us doubly happy but I know nothing much could be done with this.

    Isaac L from Greensboro , VT recommends this vacation rental

    Both properties were excellently maintained and clean. The company app made getting information about the properties easy and checkin-checkout a breeze. The only complaint was that the property is tucked away in a mostly abandoned ski resort and golf course. There wasn't easy access to a lake or pool.

    a guest from oxford, MI recommends this vacation rental

    The location is great. Our only disappointments were that there was no wifi and the sleeper sofa mattress was in very bad shape. My daughter and son-in-law slept with their children on the trundle beds, which weren't much better. We thought the kitchen was very well stocked, the TV in the living room was brand new. Overall, it was a good place to stay for my family of 12.

    There were 10 of us that stayed in the unit we rented and there was enough room for everyone. The neighbors were friendly and the golf course is within walking distance. Not all that far away from anything you would want to visit.

    a guest from Fruitport, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great time with friends - wine tasting, shopping, and hanging out together at the condo playing card games. It's a great place for couples to stay together, everyone having their own bedroom and bathroom, plus the community main floor to share and spend time together. Things to know ahead: the sleep number bed dowstairs wasn't the greatest, and the king size bed upstairs is really two twin mattresses on a king size frame. Water is very cloudy, so may want to bring your own for drinking. Also, there are no TV's in bedrooms - only TV is in the livingroom.

    Patty M from Royal Oak, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Overall, we were happy with our stay in the Sweet Life at Sugar Loaf. The view of the ski mountain was good, however, the view out of the front of the unit was shall we say- interesting. This unit is next to the defunct ski lodge and was a bit of an eyesore. Also, the unit could have been cleaner, especially in the lower level. The sleep number bed leaves something to be desired as well. Even with these negatives, I would stay here again because it was a good amount of space and the main floor functioned well for a large group. The location on Leelanau was great.

    • Manager Responded on 2/12/2013

      We have adjusted the issues with the sleep number bed and it seems to be better.

    We were satisfied with our lodging for this weekend wine tasting getaway. The property looks run down as you enter it, but the condo we stayed in served our purpose-inexpensive and modest. The pool was very nice. Location was good. Felt like we were driving
    a lot though. Sleeping Bear Dunes,Glen Arbor, and Mission Peninsula were great!

    Our family had a very nice time at this property. Sugar Loaf a beautiful area. It is a short drive to the beach, towns, lakes, Sleeping Bear Dunes and golf courses. The spacious grounds are very quiet and peaceful. Our children enjoyed the outdoor pool. This was a last minute booking for us. VisitUpNorth did an outstanding job at finding us a place to stay that would accommodate our needs. They seemed genuinely concerned about our family having a wonderful time on our vacation.

    my only issue was I wasn't clear about what to do with the trash. The instructions said to put in a dumpster but it was supposed to be out in a trash barrel in a storage closet out front. I kept looking for a large dumpster on the property.

    I appreciated the fact that the starter kit of household supplies was included. It made things much easier for us.

  • We had a wonderful visit to Sugar Loaf Resort (A-7 condo). It was confortable and inviting with everything we needed to feel at home. The only request we have is that a better quality T.V. is provided in the living room.

    The TV in the living room was un-watchable, very fuzzy and when we tried to watch a video that was provided, it wouldn't work. That was all we would change about our visit. We hope we can rent A-7 again soon!!!
