vacation rental description

Our home is located in Leelanau County, just outside the city limits
of Traverse City. We are about 15 minutes from Cherry Capital Airport. The home is in a very private setting with lots of trees and wildlife yet a very nice view of Grand Traverse Bay and the Elmwood Township Harbor.  It even comes with a fresh vegetable/herb garden for your enjoyment! The home is just under 3000 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  There is a queen hideabed in the lower level family room.  We have a deck with seating area, overlooking our pond.  There is also a patio at the pond with table and chairs.  Great place to relax and feed the fish. We are about 1 mile north of the city limits.

waterskiing. You can even grab a couple of our fishing poles and try your luck at the elusive muskie. Less than 1/4 mile away is the TART Trail (Traverse Area Recreation Trail). This
is a paved trail through the woods and over the streams, that runs for many miles. Hop on our
bikes and take a beautiful ride through the woods of Leelanau County or a 10 minute ride into
Traverse City. There are also many golf courses within the area. If you are into tennis, there are
rackets available to play tennis.

The home comes complete with linens and towels. The kitchen is
complete with pans, dishes, coffee pot, microwave, stove etc. There is a washer and dryer for your use. We also have many movies and games available.  There is wi-fi

ready for you to move in and have all the conveniences of home. Our home does have central air
conditioning if it gets too warm!

Thank you so much for letting us use your home for our vacation. We had a wonderful time! We truly enjoyed our stay. Loved the balcony, and it turned out to be a surprisingly beautiful week. We even went on a day trip to the Mackinaw Bridge. Got to enjoy some of the wineries, really enjoyed Left Foot Charlies Winery. We're hoping next year we can do this again! Thank you again!

Thank you very much for all your help and letting us stay in your home. Your home is well decorated and organized. Kids loved the fish pond and backyard. We loved table tennis and deck. We would like to come back and stay here again. I hope we can work it out. A big thank you from all of our family members!

Review submitted: May 29, 2013   Date of arrival: August 29, 2012

Thank you so much for letting us use your home for our first ever family vacation. It was a wonderful experience, one I will always remember as will the rest of my family. We enjoyed a lot of time outside on the deck and by the pond, both are very peaceful. We did a lot of sight seeing, wine tasting and relaxing. Your home is wonderful. Great space, great location and tons of things to do. Thank you!
