Very nice cottage for our first stay

  • 5 of 5

Great size for a family of four, and conveniently located near the pool. Our 4- and 2-year old boys loved the bunk bed room, and our bed was super comfortable too.

Nice small cottage

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was cozy but the living room was too small for 4 adults and 2 children. It would be fine for a couple.

Construction going on in back. Couldn't park in the driveway. The kids couldn't play in the back yard.

Wonderful place to make memories with our family

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to the Trolls Den for the last few years and each time we come back wishing we were still there. The property is in excellent condition everytime. My kids are getting older but still have a blast. Anders is a great host and we can't wait to go back.

Great house, lovely neighborhood!!!

  • 4 of 5

My family visited MI City for an engagement party and we wanted a cozy spot in a quiet area to relax after the festivities. This home fit the bill perfectly and the Troll collection throughout the house was a delightful theme that made the experience even more unique.

I highly recommend this place.
