We loved the house, it’s simply but beautifully constructed and very well appointed for a rental cabin. There were plenty of interesting books to read, and the kitchen was very well supplied with everything we needed for cooking. Being ‘off the grid’ was not a problem at all, the house has a simple yet very elegant solar/wind system that was more than for lights and everything else we needed. The owner is an excellent guy who is more than happy to go the extra mile to make his guests feel comfortable and at home. If you’re vacationing in the area, this place is a bargain and just far away enough from all the madness in Traverse City (but not too far to make it inconvenient to get there), and very close to some of the best beaches on Lake Michigan. You won’t be disappointed!
