My second time in this townhouse, would return.
Accommodations were ok but the surrounding area is very rundown and desolate. Cedar is at least a 10 minute drive.
Place could use some updating. Coffee pot was wrong size for the maker so had to prop up the pot in order for the coffee to brew.
Would not return due to surrounding area.
HI Lori, We're sorry that Sugarloaf Sweet Retreat did not fit your needs better. Thanks for the heads up on the coffee maker - we'll get that replaced.
Location of condo perfect to our wedding, great having air- conditioning but,condo very outdated.
Location was perfect to wedding attending. Air conditioning great! Nice to have 2 bedrooms, each with attached bathroom.. Management excellent in communicating
details and specific directions how to get to condo. New carpet on stairs and nice dishes, glasses, pots and pans.
Condo was very dated. Smelled of heavy air fresher throughout. Mostly original kitchen and floor. Oven had numerous dark burned spots. Areas had dust and looked dirty. Overall, condo was dark- very few lights. Beds old too – not comfortable. Couldn’t use front deck because huge air conditioning exhaust made LOTs of noise. Sliding door old. Windows couldn't open.
We were very glad we did not have to spend much time there.and splitting expense with another couple.
I'm so glad the location of Sugarloaf. It always touches my heart to hear our Freshwater Vacation Rentals team provided you with the excellent customer service we pride ourselves in. I'm glad you noticed the many of the updates the new owners have added. We sincerely appreciate your feedback and will continue to make improvements to the Sugarloaf Sweet Retreat.
Great place to stay, nice location.
We loved our stay! It was in the perfect location. Not a far drive to Sleeping Bear, Traverse City, and up the peninsula. We loved the beach at Good Harbor and it was only a 2 minute drive. Torch lake was about an hour drive. The kitchen could use some updating, but it was functional for our needs. Overall we loved the condo and location.
Sugarloaf Sweet Retreat is a townhome with a shared property pool. It's in the heart of the Leelanau Peninsula, so it's conveneince to great northern Michigan spots is fabulous. The area surrounding Sugarloaf has a variety of lakes to enjoy water sports, wineries (20+), spas and great restaurants, all within a short drive. What more could one ask for to make a memorable vacation!
Could have been better
Property was not clean (toilets and surfaces not clean) and there were maintenance issues ( toilet ready to overflowing if we didn’t stop it manually). Let property manages know and they responded well (and were embarrassed) but we were just disappointed in not being comfortable for the weekend. I’m sure the place will be spotless from here on out!
You are 100% correct. We are completely embarrassed by by both the toilet running and cleaning issues. We have made a change in our cleaning staff as a result. We appreciate your feedback. Thank you for reaching out to us to assist us in resolving this issue and remaining positive toward the future. We hope to have you back at one of our properties again.
Great place to stay.
Condo was centered in the area that we like to visit. Easy access to Glen Arbor, Leland, Suttons Bay and Traverse City. Appeared clean but had a musty smell.
We are happy you found the location adequate. We are sorry about the "musty smell", I have a ticket out to the cleaning lady to correct that. That is pretty unusual for the updated condo? Thank you for your feedback. We hope you consider our 54 other properties for you next Michigan adventure.
