traveler reviews for this traverse city house rental

Best relaxation therapy yet!

Review submitted: November 5, 2010   Date of arrival: October 29, 2010

Very nice log cabin! Nicely decorated with comfortable rustic furnishings that looked just right for the setting. VERY clean! Descriptions was very accurate. The neighbors on either side are pretty close, so if you are looking for a lot of privacy, this may not be the best place. If you are looking for a warm, comfortable atmosphere with plenty to do around the area, then this place is perfect!
We were unable to enjoy the water due to it being too cold when we were there, however, I would love to return with the kids in the summer months so that we could enjoy the beautiful lake!!
Scott was a pleasure to work with...very personable!
I would HIGHLY recommend Shirley's In The Woods Diner on M-72 and Bear Lake Road! Excellent hostess and excellent food....especially the homemade bread!

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners response: Jamie had a wonderful time at the cottage and she didn't mention it but she also got a great deal!

Please let me know if a stay in the log home on Mansitee lake is what you are looking for.

Week of Solitude

Review submitted: September 18, 2010   Date of arrival: September 4, 2010

The cabin was very clean and well decorated. It had everything we needed, and I loved the wood stove! My husband and I really enjoyed the quietness of the cabin and the sorroundings. The lake is beautiful and many mornings and evenings it was like glass, excellent for kayaking. The location was great as it was not to far to Traverse City for some fun things to do. I would highly recommend this cabin for some great R and R. We plan on returning! Thanks

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you for choosing to stay with us and we look forward to your next visit!

Great Lake Retreat!

Review submitted: August 19, 2010   Date of arrival: July 27, 2010

It is a gorgeous, meticulously maintained log cottage home! We all enjoyed the lake at the back door. The children were able to play in the lake & swim, fish catch minnows. We loved the surrounding towns including Kalkaska, Elk Rapids and Traverse City. The children enjoyed the spillway swimming in Elk Rapids and the beach. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing vacation rental for all of us. The owner was very professional and responsive. We would definately recommend the rental for everyone.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, romantic getaway

Owners response: I am glad Katie and her family had a great vacation!

Please write and let me know if you have questions about this property or would like to make a reservation.
