    Cozy Winter Getaway

    Reviewed by: Adam B. on


    This is our favorite place to stay during the winter for our ski trips up north. The fireplace makes it extra cozy and inviting and we really enjoy the snowy river views. Would highly recommend.

    Quick trip to Traverse City

    This cottage was very comfortable and clean. The fall colors were beautiful...wish we would have had better weather to enjoy the yard with our dog. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a private cottage close within a short drive to the downtown area.

    River house

    Reviewed by: jeremy s. on


    The house was very clean and relaxing. The screened in patio by the river was a great place to relax at night but it has no power so if you plan on being up late I'd suggest bringing a latern or a extension cord to run from the house. I'd stay here again for my next trip to traverse city.

    Loved our trip!

    We had a wonderful week in Michigan! My husband and girls loved waking up and fishing off of the dock, while I spent my mornings reading in the lovely screened in porch. So relaxing! We enjoyed cherry picking, kayaking and shopping in Traverse City. The house allowed us to have a trip with the perfect mix of adventure and relaxing.

    Great place right on the river. The riverfront property makes it great for kayaking. Not too far from downtown (only about a ten minute drive)

    Cozy Cabin

    Reviewed by: Adam on


    We really loved this property, as it came exactly as advertised. There were a lot of nice little touches including a Keurig with K-Cups, wood for the wood burning stove and a heating fan in the bathroom. A previous reviewer had mentioned that they had an issue with road noise, but we threw some white noise on and had no issues whatsoever. TV/Internet was easy to use and a nice perk as well. We're excited to come back next year as this is definitely our new favorite in the TC area.

    This is a wonderful cabin. I stayed with friends and family for a ski trip. It has everything you need. The kitchen is fully equipped. Bathroom have extra towels, and the rooms have an extra blanket. It list 2 bedrooms and a loft, but the loft can be a 3rd bedroom. I will definitely recommend and come back

    We really enjoyed our time at this property and would certainly come back in the future. The house is nice and cozy. Since we were at this place at the end of November, the fireplace and the fire-pit were amazing amenities to have access to.

    Nice cabin, nicely furnished and equipped. Great location to get out and explore the area. Only downside is road noise makes it very hard to sleep, which is the reason I'm only giving a 4 star. If it wasn't for that, would give 5.
