    Potato House Review

    Reviewed by: Brad S. on


    Really enjoyed our stay, the location and accommodations were very nice. My only suggestion is they need at least one more TV. I probably would not rent again with kids because kids want to play video games or watch their own thing and with just one TV that doesn't work. Our sons probably would have brought a TV if we had known there was only one TV.

    Ski Trip

    Reviewed by: Ryan R. on


    Took a family ski trip to Boyne Highlands/Nubs Nob over Christmas Break. Lovely setting on working horse farm less than 15 minutes from the slopes. Wonderful history in the property and the owners did a fabulous job of keeping the historic charm while providing the modern amenities renters have come to expect. Everything we needed was in the house. Exceptionally clean property, easiest of access to the property, and the property managers were readily available on Christmas Eve when we had a mishap with an interior door. Grocery store is within 5 minutes as well as dining in charming Harbor Springs. I would highly recommend the property to anyone looking for a northern Michigan family getaway. What a fabulous time!

    Nestled among horse paddocks yet minutes from town, this place has it all. We felt as though we were in a British barn conversion, but it was Michigan. Clean and well presented. The pictures online are accurate representations of the building. Grounds were also well maintained. Lots to do in vicinity. We would definitely return. Great cycl8ng nearby in tunnel of trees.

    Loved the home & property, happened to have a beautiful fall day-the colors were amazing! House is very clean for an older place, cozy beds & a lot of charm. Made friends with the horses too. Would definitely rent this property again.

    Beautiful unique house that has been turned into house. Bedrooms are large, and the whole place is has wonderful light. Fire pit and grill were so useful! Lots of dishes and extras for those who forgot to bring things. Enjoyed our time at the Potato House!
