Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Thrasher's Nest! The cabin was wonderful and stocked with everything needed. The view was fabulous and we loved the showers and the jetted tubs!!! We struggled so trying to find it and made three trips up the mountain, and finally just checked a cabin, before finding ours. It would be helpful to put signs along the mountain. All in all, it was a wonderful stay and we liked it so much we didn't want to leave!! Hopefully we will be back real soon!

AMAZING.

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and well stocked for things you may have forgotten (wine opener). The views from all windows of the house are pretty spectacular. Something you don't see in MI. The house was clean, cute, and we can't wait to come back!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house for a girls gets away/birthday. It was wonderful. The driving directions are a little hard to follow as the gps on the iPhone tells you you have arrived far before the house. But we were able to find the house and enjoy our weekend. Beautiful view, beautiful home, great hot tub. We really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful setting and great setup for the 5 of us and 3 dogs! Very comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a fabulous Christmas stay at Thrashers Nest! Everything we needed was available! Having the 3 floors worked great for my son & wife on the top floor with their 2 dogs and my daughter in one room on the bottom floor and my husband and our dog In the other room! The deck was fabulous.... lots of room and worked well with the dogs and could close the gates so they could not get out! The weather just didn't cooperate the best! But nothing can be done about that! There are only a few things I just want to mention.....the description of the cabin does not say exactly say how steep the roadway up and the driveway were! We had expected to do a lot more hiking/walking and the very steep hill prevented a lot of that! Also.... my daughter had mentioned to you the smell in one of the downstairs bedrooms.....but after opening the doors and windows it finally aired out! And the oven was very dirty! We cooked just about every day in the oven.... and the first night it smoked quite a bit due to the oven being so dirty! It really needed a good cleaning! And some of the cupboards were rather dirty! And some of the jets on the hot tub did not work.... don't know if it was operator error but maybe a manual on how to operate would be useful! Beside that.... we had a very enjoyable stay... couch is very comfy.... the beds not as comfy but they worked! I hope you get a lot of rain this spring to fill the lake....it is such a beautiful area! Thank you for the use of your property.... it was a great experience!

Great getaway with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful place to celebrate our five year anniversary with good friends. The space was cozy and welcoming. We ate well and loved the hot tub overlooking the lake. I only wish the beds were a little more comfortable.
