Just OK - NO A/C
This property has NO A/C. The listing is deceiving. There is a single wall unit that isn’t really working. The house was hot all week to the point of several people not being able to sleep. Also, the space was only surface cleaned. Lots of dust and dead bugs. The pool was nice and cleaned as scheduled. The lake view is pretty but the lake itself is not good for swimming. 20 minutes to TC and the peninsulas. There’s a cute coffee shop and brewery in town. Despite the quiet charms of the location I cannot get over the deceitful listing. We would not stay here again.

Family vacation 2022
The house with the pool was excellent. The benefits of pool or lake was appreciated by all. The no wake lake was great for kayaking and canoeing. Plenty of space for all 8 of us to enjoy each other and have some private space. Very quiet surrounding allowing for peaceful days. Close to Traverse City, Interlochen, hiking trails golf and sand dunes.

Lily Pad Cove Labor Day 2021
Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Overall good experience. Very interesting decor, lots of books! Some beds were a little lumpy, others shared a room. I would say comfortable sleeps 7. Not toddler friendly! Gardens need a bit of TLC. Nice to be able to take my dog...1 person kayak, row boat and canoe were nice to have on hand. Cauught a few small fish. No sharp prep knives so definitely bring your own. Good location for adventuring. Would recommend with reservations..

Peaceful Getaway
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!

Family vacation
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The beaches and dunes were easy driving distance. We ate outside every day using the large table on the back patio and have several really good photos of birds at the feeder...loved the old general store in Lake Ann where we purchased bird seed to replenish the cache.<br/> We enjoyed the heated pool...the pool maintenance men came on Saturday on our arrival and again mid week.<br/>We took the kayak and canoe out on the lake ... however there is no area to even step off the dock b/c of the mucky bottom.<br/>All the décor from the owner's time spent in Africa and other countries was unique and interesting (I am glad I am not the person doing the dusting!). We tried to keep little hands off although did not see any signs saying "do not touch".<br/>We would rent again if the owners have not reclaimed their retirement home.

New Years Eve 2020 in the rear view mirror.
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I have a family of 11 including several plus ones. Lily Pad Cove was perfect for us as it had plenty of room and beds. We also brought the family dog and again plenty of room. Me and my wife also loved the way it was decorated with artwork from Africa and other oddities you don't normally see in a property.

Beautiful place but...
Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was very happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great setting. Very convenient to all the places we wanted to see. Love the pool. Enjoyed kayaking on the lake. But there were problems with mice (saw them running across the kitchen counter), poor cleaning (cobwebs on light fixtures, lots of dust and debris under the beds. Stone around pool very harsh on feet.

Found my calm place
I thought we might tour the area, but the pool was so wonderful that we spent most of the time splashing around and doing laps. The interior is a delight with lots of books. This gem hidden in the woods, on a quite lake was just wanted I needed to destress.

Great vacation
Overall it was a great vacation. Loved the pool and the use of the kayak, canoe and row boat. Minor complaints include the stones around the pool and the lack of responsiveness from the management company. Also, the upstairs bedroom gets pretty hot. May need an extra fan. The one provided wasn't enough.
