traveler reviews for this traverse city house rental

Wonderful Family Vacation

Review submitted: September 7, 2012   Date of arrival: August 25, 2012

Our group included my wife and I, our children and their children. Murphy's Manor was an excellent vacation house for all our interests. The lake offered very good fishing and wonderful swimming beaches. When our group wasn't busy at the lake we were at points of interest in the Traverse City area. Our hostess and host were most gracious and helpful. We had blue gill straight from the lake to the fry pan one day and everyone loved it. The kitchen and laundry were both well equiped and the accomodations were roomy and comfortable. Three boats are on the beach and fun to use in the lake. We brought our own small boat and found easy put in at the DNR ramp and easy tie up to the dock. The whole family had a great time and hope to be able to return next season.

Fanastic Wedding Weekend!!!!!!

Review submitted: June 19, 2012   Date of arrival: June 8, 2012

Search no further....this is the place to stay!! This is a gorgeous, well-maintained home on one of the most beautiful lakes in the Traverse City area. There is no reason to bring anything but your family as the owners keep this house clean and well-stocked. You can take a short five minute paddle boat or canoe ride over to the "Island" and swim on a clean, sandy beach. Traverse City is only 15 minutes away but there are convenience stores much closer. We had a fire on the beach every night as all the wood is provided. The house is very pet friendly and our dogs enjoyed the place as well. The bedrooms are HUGE and the kitchen, where we spent a lot of our time, is one of the larger rooms in the house. The place is obviously very well maintained. You have your choice of a dozen fishing poles where we were catching Sunnies right off the dock. I would recommend this place to anyone with children, pets or just couples wanting to kick back in a remote setting but close enough to everything the Traverse area has to offer. I would not hesitate to go back again.

Wonderful comfortable and clean home

Review submitted: February 25, 2012   Date of arrival: February 18, 2012

A group of teachers stayed at this home so we could attend a conference. The house was so clean and had everything we needed to feel right at home. The lake is so beautiful and we enjoyed watching the ice fisherman right outside the window. The fireplace kept us toasty warm at night while we played games. The bedrooms are roomy and have lots of closet space. All in all I would stay here in a heartbeat again. Loved it and the host is so kind and helpful.
