Beautiful lakeside custom built home with close access to ORV trails!
About Courtney Iwanicki
My husband, my parents and myself decided to go in together and purchase a lake house for us to spend vacation time at and as a place that others would be able to rent and enjoy.
Courtney Iwanicki purchased this House in 2019
Why Courtney Iwanicki chose National City
We spent almost 2 years looking for what we consider the "perfect place". That included a cottage/cabin with minimal repairs (because who wants to spend your vacation time making repairs), being on a lake with a sandy bottom so the kids can play and being within riding distance of ORV trails. It took us a while, but we finally found what we consider to be the perfect place!!
What makes this House unique
One of the great things about this home is it's open main level floor plan. My dad is in a wheelchair and he get's around great on the main level. Hopefully this fall we will be installing ramps for the front porch and back deck!!!
Minimum age of primary renter:25
No excessive loud noise (we have neighbors and would like you to be respectful).
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
Lake house review
My family of 9 had a wonderful time at Courtney’s beautiful, clean, and spacious lake house made for a fantastic spent with my family. Courtney was always available answering my emails and made our stay very memorable. We will return. Thank you, Courtney! A big plus was we were able to bring our 2 labs with us!
We had two small families stay here for a long weekend. Each set of parents had their own room and there are more than enough beds for kids in the loft. The weather was perfect all weekend and we barely went inside. Fantastic!
From booking this property through the entire stay, everything was perfect. The house itself was fantastic. It is a great layout and very nicely decorated. Unfortunately, we had a lot of rain, but there was enough to do in the house and in the surrounding areas where it did not negatively affect our stay. The close proximity to trailheads was a very pleasant surprise. This is one of the best places we've stayed at and would highly recommend it in the future.
When I was looking for a late-fall vacation, I wanted a clean home on a shallow lake where my dog could play. This house was more than I dreamed. I awed at the woodwork each day. I would love to be the carpentry apprentice of the person who built this house. I took many pictures and texted to them to friends. The location is close to Tawas, and there are many good restaurants and trails nearby. I would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a well-appointed lakefront home in a nice community.
Perfect Family Getaway
We were so lucky to stumble upon this little slice of heaven. Perfect for our extended family of eleven. I feel like the hosts go above and beyond with providing you everything you need. Great communication, easy check-in and out and so many amenities. It is worth noting that there is only one bathroom (which is clearly stated) to go with a lot of beds. But thankfully lake life requires very little time prettying up so it really wasn't a problem.
Great place for Family gathering
This home was clean and well stocked. Nice sandy beach with kayaks and paddle boards we all enjoyed! Close to town and restaurants.
