The house was big (but cozy!) with fascinating decor. The pool was a hit with the kids and adults! Huge outdoor table for dining outside. The lake was perfect for kayaking and canoeing, and we spent many hours on the water enjoying it. Far enough away from things to feel secluded, but just a short drive to Traverse City and the dunes. We saw loons, ducks, birds of all types, and the property has wonderful natural plants to attract butterflies. We loved every minute of it!
