Wonderfully unique home that provided our party of 13 and 2 dogs plenty of space. Great property to
Great grounds, plenty of trails to walk and ride on. Really enjoyed the evenings sitting on the deck looking out over the pond.
What a beautiful setting💙💚
We had a large family staying at the property (15) babies-7 year old children included. The homeowners were absolutely wonderful and accommodating. Very helpful at any time of day. The grown ups had a great time teaching the Little’s to fish at the pond. The house had an amazing set up for privacy as well as open space for family bonding. The kids had a blast and the grown ups enjoyed the peaceful views! The private property of 20acres+ was perfect. We always knew where the kids were. Great to have a home setting vs a hotel stay. 30 mins from any public beach was convenient. Would highly recommend this location to anyone! 💙
The property was beautiful, secluded, and very well kept!
My family went here with relatives that came up from Florida for my husbands birthday. The location was secluded and out of the city which we were looking for. The layout of the house was perfect with our 8 month old to keep him in an area of the house that stayed quiet for night and naps. The house was fully stocked with everything we could need and there owner was extremely responsive and easy to talk to! Super clean with plenty of clean linens. We were lucky enough to watch a doe and her 2 fawns playing in the yard one morning while drinking coffee. Highly recommend this place and was not disappointed!
Perfect Cabin for a Large Group
The Forest Lodge exceeded all of our expectations! We searched and searched for a place big enough to accommodate our large group that gets together every year for a golf weekend. The Forest Lodge couldn't have been a better home base for our group. It is very private and a short drive to dozens of golf courses in the Traverse City area.
The pictures truly do not do the house justice. It's sprawling, with private wings and rooms that worked out perfectly for our group. We enjoyed the large kitchen and dining room table for group dinners every night. The open floor plan was great as well -- as many in our group don't see each other more than once a year and the open space gave us more than enough room to be together and catch up. The house is also full of high-end touches, including a hot tub, sauna and massage chair (which was extremely popular after long days on the golf course!).
The privacy of the house was also a big plus for our group. The property is huge, with a massive front yard perfect for yard games. The fire pit is tucked away, and several trails break out from the house -- great for morning hikes.
We've been doing our golf outing for several years and everyone agreed that this was the best place we have stayed. Deb was fantastic to work with and readily available to answer any questions. Would highly, highly recommend this house!
Great house and location
This house was amazing. The location was really great as you have so much space for yard games and hanging out. Deb was great to work with and super accommodating on early check in.
I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a place to get away near Traverse City!
The photos truly don't due justice to the beauty and privacy that this property provides. Our group had a great time and would use you again. Definitely.
