Cute & Cozy
Great location! Just a short drive to Traverse City or Interlochen. Nice sandy beach and water is perfect for small children since it doesn't drop off fast. Owners provide row boat, canoe, life vests and even rafts for added fun. Rental home has its own picnic table, lawn chairs and a charcoal grill for outdoor dining. The interior of the home is a little outdated, but was clean upon arrival and had all the amenities of home such as a full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee pot and plenty of dishes and glasses. The reason I gave it 4 stars was for two reasons. The first being there was no central air conditioning or ceiling fans, but the owner did provide 2 floor fans which helped. The second being the size of the recently updated bathroom. The vanity is too big (should have put in a pedestal sink) therefore when sitting on the commode your knees hit the vanity and I'm only 5'5. This could be a problem for someone who is tall, overweight or has balance issues because it was difficult sitting on the commode or having to step over the commode to get into the shower. Owners were great to work with and even permitted us to bring our little dog. Home was the perfect size for my husband and I, but might be cramped for more than 4 people. Overall we had a lovely stay and would recommend this home to others.
