About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Mariana - Our stay at your lovely cabin.
First, we had a wonderful time. It was great seeing our son, cooking together and experiencing snow!
We don't do snow in New Orleans and our little one was able to play in it safely on your deck and that was a real plus.
The fireplace was cozy and we appreciated the firewood that was available.
We LOVED our stay and were so happy to be here.

Fall color tour getaway
The home was absolutely beautiful when we first walked in. There was plenty of space for all six of us- we each had our own corner of the house. We even had a small baby with us and could not hear him cry during the night. It was very nice to have a fully stocked kitchen and laundry available, the only problem was the fact that we couldn't figure out how to use the oven. We also could not figure out the heat very well but were able to get it adjusted quickly so that everyone was comfortable. Everything else was pretty self-explanatory and the owners had a very detailed list and directions for us.
It was a very short trip into town- only 15 minutes from a Meijer, which was VERY convenient! We went out to dinner every night and tried all of the local (and not so local) breweries! We went to the Jolly Pumpkin, North Peak, 7 Monks, and Shorts (about an hour and fifteen mins away, but VERY worth it!) We also did some wine tasting; Black Star Farms and Chateau Grand Traverse are a must!! The local farmers market wasn’t very big because of it being so close to fall and the shops at the Grand Traverse Commons were pretty disappointing with the exception to Trattoria Stella for lunch- it was pretty pricey but definitely worth it!
We were able to go fishing quite a bit- the Walleye fishing on Long Lake was amazing! The boat launch is a short trip away from the dock and a very easy in and out. Getting the boat up and down the driveway took a little skill though. The dock needed a small amount of work but held our boat for the entire week without any problems.
The owners were great! They communicate quickly and efficiently. We did not have any issues while we were there that needed their attention. They sent everything we needed ahead of time and everything went off without a hitch.
We would absolutely stay here again! It was such a beautiful place and within a short distance to the city but far enough away to stay out of the traffic.
Unfortunately, there were a few frustrating aspects of our stay. The oven temperature display was not working and we needed to bake a birthday cake the first day. We spoke to the owner by phone and we agreed to try to blindly adjust the temp with incremental pushes of the button. We had to keep using this approach all week. Another disappointing aspect was that the air conditioning is only on the first floor (including the master bedroom) and not in the lower level where all the other beds are. It was quite hot and stuffy the first few nights as there are only a couple of small windows with screens that open on that level. We had to go out and buy a few fans. Fortunately, the weather cooled a bit the second half of the week. The kitchen could use some more supplies (bowls, silverware, pans) given that the home is supposed to accommodate 11 people.
I think that as rentals go, this one is well pretty well maintained. The location was fantastic!
Beautiful home, great location.
The sound system throughout the home is amazing. The Jacuzzi was relaxing. The view from upper and lower decks is beautiful. I'm sure it is fabulous in the summer with all the activities that come associated with a lake.
The area offers many attractions year round so there is little chance of getting bored. Many brochures and directions were provided by the owner which made planning the week very easy.
The only thing to be aware of is the driveway is somewhat steep and a regular car isn't capable of getting back up on its own so it was a lot of work toting all our belongings down then up the hill. But it was worth it!
We really look forward to have you again as our special guests at "Remember your Spirit".
