Wonderful get-away!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this was the best experience we have had with renting a home. The owner, Dennis was an extremely gracious host, who went above and beyond, making sure everything was just perfect for our week's stay in July. This is a gorgeous home, with everything you could want or need for a perfect lake vacation. From having 3 full bathrooms, to the warm and cozy look and feel of this log home, to the fabulous lake views and private setting, it is truly a place worth experiencing! We would love to get the chance to come back sometime in the future.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin and Dennis was a delight to work with. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better place. It was beautiful and so interesting. The cabin is decorated with personal touches that make you feel like you really know Dennis and his family. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful property, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

The pictures only give a glimpse of how lovely every detail is. The views across the snow-covered frozen lake were gorgeous. Dennis was so wonderful and welcoming to us. He even arranged for us to meet with other people with shared interests. Thanks! It was a superb visit.

Wonderful repeat stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here three years ago and so loved the cabin and the area that we, for the first time ever in our years of vacations, decided to return to someplace we had come before. The cabin is a homey, clean, beautifully (and eclectically) decorated, welcoming, relaxing home away from home with all the amenities you'll ever need. I loved the early morning kayaking across the calm lake waters and exploring all 5 islands on Long Lake. So much to see, explore, enjoy, shop, and eat in the area you can make it any kind of vacation you want. And the cabin is a wonderful place to come back to after a busy day or just relax and unwind in a beautiful setting with a terrific view of the lake. Enjoyed a free concert at Interlochen Performing Arts Center, visiting Sleeping Bear Dunes, shopping at Sutton's Bay, taking the historic tour of the former Asylum (the Village at Grand Traverse Commons), seeing Castle Farms and the Mushroom houses in Charlevoix, and visiting the surprisingly great museum called Music House Museum. The only problem with staying here is it's hard to leave. We will definitely be back again.

Horrible Owner interaction...Beautiful place

  • 1 of 5

I would like to preface this review by stating my family and I have been utilizing this site for our vacations 3 times a year for the past 8years (we often go back to the same properties)—so we are not novices. However, out of all the places we have stayed, our interaction with this owner, Dennis, was horrendous to say the least. His place is beautiful and nicely maintained as pictured. Upon check-in, he met us and was kind and appropriate, but an irrational transformation occurred upon checkout. I take ownership of my misunderstanding of the checkout time—I thought it was 11am but it was actually 10am. So I took advantage of a last minute grouse hunting invite (10 minutes away) by a friend the morning we were leaving. My wife and 8 year old daughter were packing up and I was on my way back to the cabin when I received an irate phone call from Dennis at 10:10am—screaming at me over the phone, telling me to get my stuff and family out of his place! I arrived by 10:15 am, I was greeted by Dennis pacing and yelling at me. I apologized for my misunderstanding and offered to stay and help prepare the cabin for the next party arriving at 4pm. In front of my daughter, he continued displaying his taunting and bullying behavior by threatening to call the sheriff because I was not packing our belongings into our vehicle fast enough. Additionally, Dennis disclosed to me had hidden cameras on the property and had been watching our family! After we left, my wife told me Dennis had raged into the home before I was there, startling her and my daughter, and telling our daughter “Young Lady, you need to get your things and get out of my house now!” My daughter became upset and confused to the point she began crying. He continued his unrelenting behavior as I held my daughter. My wife also told me while I was outside packing, she had apologized to Dennis for the misunderstanding and was sorry that he was so upset. He accused us of manipulating the contract and violating the law! My wife reminded him that she was apologizing and his sharp response was, “I’ve heard it!” You should know my wife is physician and is not scared by cognitively impaired persons; however she became quite afraid during her interaction with Dennis. We left by 10:35am. Our wonderful stay in northern Michigan was ruined by this man’s, as quoted from my daughter, “totally inappropriate behavior”. We will never stay at a property affiliated with this owner. Thank you for reading my review.

Owner's Response: We provide an exceptionally comfortable and beautiful home for visitors to the Traverse City area, so it is unfortunate to hear that anyone would have an unpleasant experience. It is even more unfortunate that Homeaway will post any review without checking its accuracy and honesty. Therefore, our response is factual and can be verified by any visitor. We can provide some feedback to this party, however, that may help them understand why they are disappointed: Agreement was not followed by the visitor - each visitor signs an agreement clearly stating the maximum number of people staying and agrees to remove their household trash, food and start 1 load of laundry. 1. Visitor added 4 people beyond the maximum number without authorization from the owner. 2. Visitor did not vacate at the agreed time, and did not complete duties as stated in the agreement before leaving. The visitor didn’t vacate the property until one and a half hours past the agreed departure time. 3. There are and were no hidden cameras. Every visitor is asked to fully read and understand the agreement before they sign and return it. In order to accommodate every visitor, and in order to assure the same beautifully maintained home to each party, we require all parties to vacate at the time stated in the agreement. This assures proper preparation time for the next visitor, unless previous arrangements are communicated and agreed to by the owner.
