5/5 Excellent

Comfortable, Celebratory, & Centrally Located!
We loved staying at this fabulously appointed and luxuriously comfortable cottage. We had never been to Empire and were thrilled to discover how centrally located it is to Glen Arbor and Traverse City. While we enjoyed going out, we enjoyed staying around the property even more. If you can’t find whatever appliance or cooking utensil you need in the kitchen, it doesn’t exist. This place is built for entertainment with a fully furnished lower level and plenty of outdoor space including a fire pit with free wood . We can’t wait to come back!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely cozy cottage!
This is our first time up north for the wine tour and we wanted somewhere comfortable to stay during our trip. This cottage made us feel like we were back home! It was so cozy and clean, and the location was just a short drive to various wineries. It’s tucked away in a wooded area - nicely secluded from other houses. Bonfire pit out back was a nice option! We didn’t take advantage of that, but thought it was nice to have the option. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend this location!

5/5 Excellent

Super place
We loved our stay. The owners have thought of everything. When you enter you feel welcome and immediately start enjoying your trip!

5/5 Excellent

Turner Empire
The house and property were both very nice! The inside was very clean and spacious and included everything a guest would need. The outside was also very nice and we even used the fireplace which was stocked with ample wood. Linda was very easy to communicate with making the entire stay pleasant! Would definitely recommend!

5/5 Excellent

Private Well Stocked Cabin
We had a GREAT stay at Empire Turner. This was by far the best stocked cabin we've rented...from kitchen appliances and gadgets to towels and toiletries to electronics. Made it so easy and enjoyable. Great location - close to Empire and Glen Arbor. Would definitely stay here again.
