Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very unique area and cozy room. The pool was indoor/outdoor and cool. Plenty of at-home style amenities like kitchen n utensils. Close to torch lake and I'll bet it's even fun up that way in the winter because there are ski hills everywhere!

Perfect Location for Up North Fun
This was the perfect place for us to get away in a quiet location, but within driving distance for day trips to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Fishtown, and Traverse City. Perfectly clean and snug with a generous supply of towels and soaps. The little kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed as well. We would come here again!

We liked that it was clean, and that there was plenty of essential amenities. We didn't like the fact that there was a lot of cobwebs outside surrounding the premises. Overall we enjoyed our stay, and look forward to returning.

Great stay! Very helpful and responsive owner. This cute little place is at the foot of Schuss ski slopes. Easy walking distance to restaurant and lifts. Right across the driveway is the Nordic ski rental center if you’re interested in XC skiing, dog sledding, or snow shoeing. The lodging has an an outdoor entrance one floor up. Parking available right outside the door. The place has a small kitchen to cook in, Keurig coffee machine, tv with DVDs to watch. The place was clean on arrival. The only negative is the bed was a bit slouchy with two people in it but not too big of a deal. Overall I’d stay here again!
