Overall worth it!
Aside from tubs not draining during showers and no window coverings which made us feel a bit like fish in a bowl and minor unfinished construction here and there, this was a very nice place. Comfortably furnished, master bedroom bed is huge and comfy but the doors on it don't close fully. Last visitor left dishes crusted with baked on burnt food (ugh). Fireplace wood was supplied for us and we enjoyed a fire every night. A griddle of some sort would have been nice. Local places nearby have good food. Even the pizza place! A thermostat in every room provided perfect comfort. Nicely decorated. Our host was helpful and very nice when we called w questions. Our phone GPS was off by one road - do not look for Josef st. Turn on Kliffendorf and follow to end. Several steps outside for those w trouble on stairs. Bring paper towel and toilet paper! Set back at a dead end and nearly surrounded by woods except for the connected condo next door, it's got a real off the beaten path private feel yet is close to Petoskey, Charlevoix and Traverse City. We had a really great time, and spent less overall than on a hotel. Would definitely go back.
