5/5 Excellent

Beautiful home, space for everyone, this is truly a hidden gem!

Where do I even begin?! This house was absolutely perfect. There was so much space for everyone, you never feel overcrowded. The views were breathtaking, and the area was so quiet and relaxing! We’d sit on the porch in the morning with coffee in hand and soak up the sun for the day! Each bedroom was very accommodating, and all the living room areas were perfect for our large group. We will definitely be back, we loved everything about the house, not one complaint. Deborah was very kind and helpful, I really appreciated her touching base with me before the trip. I would highly recommend this house for anyone searching for a place to stay during a visit to Traverse City :)

5/5 Excellent

The Carlisle house was magnificent!!

This home had plenty of space for our group and had great seating for when we all wanted to unwind from the day and just relax. We will definitely rent out again!!

5/5 Excellent

Our party of seven ladies enjoyed a 5K in a vineyard, outstanding meals in town and shopping!

Carlisle Farms is spotless, spacious and comfortable. The surrounding property is quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed the sunny deck and stunning gardens.
