We greatly enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. It was centrally located to all the places we wanted to visit - Traverse City, Glen Arbor, Frankfort, Leland, Suttons Bay, Charlevoix. Most places were only a 20 minute drive away. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood, is comfortable and well appointed. The master bedroom bed is VERY high, so bring a step stool if shorter than 5'4" (luckily, I looked at the photos first and packed one)! We were too busy exploring to use the deck or fire pit area, but appreciated they were there for us. Lisa was a fabulous host and very responsive to all of our questions before and during our stay. She even went out of her way to help from afar when the coffee maker stopped functioning. We highly recommend renting this home if you want a comfortable "home base" for exploring the area and don't mind that dining and attractions aren't in the immediate vicinity.
