This home is well taken care of, extremely clean, and had everything we needed for comfort and day-to-day living. The owners have thought of everything, and then some. We enjoyed exploring the lake and the nature surrounding it.
We took the paddle boat out nearly every day, at least once, and the boat every evening for fishing. The beds and living room furniture were quite comfortable and there were plenty of things to do at the house. The location is perfect for visiting Fishtown in Leland (if you get a chance, eat at Rick's Cafe on the dock!), Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and more.
We enjoyed the quaint little "downtown," a few blocks from the cabin, where we ate a couple of times and visited the ice cream place. A couple of nights they had live music out behind the Stone Oven restaurant where there are many picnic tables for people to sit, eat and enjoy. Everyone we interacted with was very friendly.
The Internet worked great, as well as the TV. The grill was relatively new and we took advantage of that a couple of nights.
I appreciate the Shields opening their home and entrusting us to care for it while enjoying some much-needed time away from the craziness of work. We will definitely consider returning and highly recommend this clean and cozy home.
