Was a great stay and great location just outside town. Easy commute to town and restaurant/bar walking distance from the house. Would recommend to anyone to stay.
Owner was a great communicator leading up to and throughout our stay. House was in great shape and was perfect for our large group with lots of kids. Fishing was a highlight of the weekend for all the kids with everyone getting in on the action. Can't wait to visit this place again soon!
We had a wonderful stay! The cottage was fully stocked and equipped so there was very little we needed to pack beyond our personal items and food. The bunk room was absolutely perfect for the kids! New sand had recently been brought in for the beach – and my kids LOVED the beach!! The paddleboat and kayaks were a special treat for us and the kids. It was so refreshing to wake up on such a quiet and quaint little lake, we wished we could have stayed longer. Next time our travels take us to the Traverse area we will certainly book here again!! Jim the owner was so pleasant and accommodating – Thanks again for a fantastic stay!
Pleasant surroundings. Lake was perfect for grandchildren
Cottage was roomy and clean. Lake was great for floating. Very peaceful!
