We had a great time at this cabin. The lake was beautiful, clear with a sand bottom. Lots of lakefront and land. The cabin was clean and well cared for. There was a row boat, canoe and paddle boat available for our use, wooden swing, deck overlooking the lake, two docks, two picnic tables, weber grill, chairs, fire pit, and a hammock. It was also in a great location to sightsee in and around Traverse City. Everything we went to was a 45 minute or less drive (mostly less.) The owner Carl was very friendly. I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to vacation in Traverse City!!
