This house had all the things we needed. We had 5 little boys 9yo to 3 yo with us. Between the sand and the paddle boards we had a great time. Lots of hiking and two restaurants close by. We have never been to Michigan before so we weren’t expecting the expensive groceries,l. If your trying to save $ I’d go grocery shopping at the Walmart in Traverse city (~30 minutes away) bs Glen Arbor. Glen Arbor and Leland (sp?) were both cute little towns near by. Little Traverse lake was so still in the mornings it was like glass. So beautiful. The house was cute and like I said fully loaded. I was glad to see it had a crockpot. Plenty of dishes. No cable but we brought our Firestick and there was an Apple TV that we could sign into Netflix with. So that worked for the kids. Also no air conditioning, but I didn’t think it was needed. Fans it every room and cooler because of the lake right there. Overall we really enjoyed this adorable house!! Mike was so fast at responding to all our emails even while we were there during the week! He was great.
