Amazing views and ultimate cottage decor

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year in a row that my family stayed at this property, and trust me this is the o ly one that we will stay at. From the breathtaking views, to the piece and quiet, and not to mention the overall atmosphere inside and outside the cottage makes for an amazing time. Our kids absolutely love the ability to swim from the shallow sandy bottom shoreline to the swim platform. We decided this year to do less sight seeing and spend more time at the property. We still were sad to leave. It never feels long enough. We will definitely be making a yearly trip here. Robert and Amy are amazing to deal with and we never have to want for anything. Definitely worth it for anyone looking to stay in the area. Only a 15 minute drive to anything your heart desires. Wonderful memories can for sure be made here and looked back on for years to come.

Perfect Memorial Day Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I moved to Michigan a few years ago from Chicago and have heard from my neighbors, colleagues, and friends about the serenity of vacationing "up North." But, I'd never tried it before staying in Rob's home just south of Traverse City. About twelve hours after arriving--enough time to grill on the deck, dip our toes in the lake while the sun set, and sit fireside while the stars arrived--I turned to my wife and asked whether we could move-in permanently. That may sound like an exaggeration, but it's an honest expression of how comfortable we were in Rob's home and how peaceful the environment is. He was helpfully communicative with us in advance of the trip, there were no problems with the logistics, and we'll absolutely be back. 10/10, would recommend to anyone.

Great Cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our friends, and I had an AMAZING time staying at this cabin. Super clean, beautiful, and modern inside of the cabin. The beds were comfy and the deck was great for morning coffee. The fire pit on the private beach is where we would end up every night as it was super peaceful. We could not have asked for a better property to stay at in the Traverse City area. Cant wait to come back and stay again.

I am grateful for the wonderful review and look forward to having you come back for another visit to Traverse City - Thank you!

Very comfortable, clean and quiet. Great view from deck and lovely sandy beach.

  • 5 of 5

Easy access and parking. Very close to fun tavern Peegeo's and 15-20 minutes to great downtown dining Traverse City. Definitely recommend this cottage and would consider staying again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review of the cottage and the surrounding area! Peegeo's is definitely our "go to" for tasty tavern food and take out - they were recently voted #1 for Chicken Wings in Michigan for the Northern Lower Peninsula area! Again, thank you for choosing the rental and we are definitely pleased to hear you would consider coming back for another visit!!!

Quiet and relaxing cottage...with plenty for our children to do!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two small children had a wonderful stay at the cottage! With the private sand beach and dock it gave our children plenty to do if we didn't want to go out for the day. The cottage was exceptionally maintained and had a very "homey" feel to it. It was very clean and comfortable inside. The owner and property manager are very easy to work with and our just an email or text message away. We are hoping to come back in the next couple of years!
