What a perfect visit! If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation this location is a wonderful choice. This was our second stay, we were not disappointed. We had the beach to ourselves and we did several day outings to Mackinaw, Leland and Traverse City. Fall colors were vibrant, the apples crisp and the weather wonderful. We visited Turtle Creek Casino and many of the local art galleries. While choices for eating out were limited unless you headed into Traverse City or Charlevoix we did find Torch lake diner to be a good place to eat (within 3 miles). Cabin is well equipped for eating in if you choose. We did enjoy having the Wi-Fi available, nice to be able to look to see if there are any locations/activities worth visiting. The hosts are great to work, no complaints here!

If you are looking for peace and quiet in a cute secluded cottage, this is the place! Beautiful view of Lake Michigan, close to both Traverse City and Charlevoix. The owners were very nice, gracious hosts! Thanks to you both for a lovely week!!

Meg and I stayed here for a week and actually hated to leave. Very nice location, very private. Owner was very cooperative and a nice person. Will probably return sometime in the future!

My husband, our Golden-Lab and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at this wonderful, beautifully located cottage. The cottage was secluded, comfortable, cozy and clean. We have always loved the beautiful Lake Michigan sunsets, so we were thrilled to be able to watch this awesome sight from either the balcony or down at the beach. We took many long relaxing walks on the beach. We saw an Eagle and her two babies feeding on a sandbar, deer in the woods surrounding the cottage, and many types of birds. Wish we could go back next week!

This cottage is nestled perfectly on the shores of Grand Traverse Bay and the owners, Ken and Madeline are absolutely great and very accommodating. We went in knowing the cottage was a little small, but we left feeling it was perfect for our needs, especially knowing we would spend little time inside. The weather was gorgeous (a few days of light rain) and the water temperature was amazingly warm (record temps.) Our dogs loved it and slept for days when we finally arrived home. Walks on the beach and watching the sunset was a must nearly every night soon followed by campfires and smores. The views on the deck while chowing down on that home-cooked meal made for an easy way to unwind while discussing the days activities. We highly recommend this site for a family or small group of friends, especially those with dogs. They will love you for it. There is plenty of room to roam and take walks or bike rides or even visit any of the small towns nearby. We even found ourselves settling in on some chairs on a small sandbar out in the lake nearly every day (make sure you bring water-shoes as it is a bit rocky in places.) There is plenty to appreciate about this place and we hope to head back next year. In fact, the place was so perfect, I decided to propose to my girlfriend... thanks again, Ken and Madeline!

We had a wonderful time at this cute cottage. It's private but still close enough to great attractions. Nice beach but rocky so bring beach shoes. The cottage itself was nice and had all the amenities you'll need for the stay. We would recommend you to try this if you're looking for a peaceful escape from the everyday life.

We drove 13 hours to get to this cottage and it was worth every minute of it ! we stayed a week and never got bored. The cottage is small but very clean and comfortable. There is everything you need to prepare a nice meal to eat on the porch while looking at the wondefull sunset ! The beach is sandy, very quiet and so beautiful ! Bring watershoes because there are rocks in the water. The water is very clear. They provide chairs to use on the beach. The firepit is perfectly placed to hear the sound of the waves while grilling a marshmallow. We have rented many cottages before and this was our best experience ever. On a rainy day, we visited a nice fisher village, called Leland, where we ate fresh fish and did a little shopping. I would recommend it. About an hour and half of drive. Thank you very much for this experience Ken and we will surely be back and recommend it to our friends and family.

Just enough room for 2 adults, 2 teens and a 90 lb. Golden Retriever. We enjoyed the week we spent here; the beach is beautiful! Quiet, quiet, quiet! Exactly what we were looking for! Ken was very easy to work with.

My wife and I celebrated our tenth anniversary at this nice little cottage. We had a great time! The property is very secluded and provides a perfect escape from everyday life. It is a very reasonable distance to the beach and the water, which was a good temperature in early August. The second story deck provides an ideal perch for watching the sun set. The cottage itself is nice. The only downside at all was the lack of air conditioning as the weather did get sticky. It is a great place to take your dogs. We have two large dogs and they had a blast swimming and roaming the beach. I am not sure who had a better time. Us or the dogs. The ground under the water was rocky in spots so it is helpful to bring swim shoes. This is definitely a place we would consider going to again. It is in a great location in the state being only a short drive to Traverse City. Thank you for the awesome vacation.

My husband, dog, and I had a very relaxing and peaceful week at the cottage. We all enjoyed the long walks on the beach and swimming in Lake Michigan. My dog swam for the first time and loved it. The campfires at night were also wonderful. The close proximity to Torch Lake made it possible to spend a couple days experiencing this beautiful lake. We ALL had a GREAT time!! Thanks Ken!!

Pictures of this little gem just don't do it justice. The cottage offers location, setting, and sunsets that combine to make a great vacation find. Hospitality of your hosts is unmatched. Highly recommend, we will diffenately return, and our pooch had a great time!

My husband and I, and our perfect canine - Georgia Peaches :) had the pleasure of staying at the cottage this past week. It was very relaxing, peaceful and comfortable! Just what we needed on a vacation from our jobs. The view was out of this world as well as the walks on the beach. I can't say enough about how enjoyable this past week was. We have to add the Cherry Pie we got down the street and G's pizza in Traverse City was fantastic. Thanks again Ken & Madeline for being so extremly great and lending out your home so we could have one of the best weeks.

Absolutely beautiful spot. Kids n dog loved it. Surfed the waves, hunted petosky stones and wandered the beach. One mile away was torch lake with a great public launch with swimming, volleyball,playground and swim area. It was like the Bahamas without the passport, or hassle! Liked its much we contacted a realtor. And Ken was great ! Thx Ken!!

From beginning to end, this trip was perfect for the whole family, including the dog. Communication and representation was first class! We will always remember the good quality time we spent overlooking the lake, watching the sun set, bonfires and eating smores. The view was amazing from throughout the property and we hope to again stay at such a wonderful place. Thanks Ken!! - The Helmer Family
