Beautiful House and Neighborhood
very nice, clean house. Great neighborhood. close to the beach.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful Week at the Wine & Coffee House
Overall the home was clean, beautiful and well stocked. The beds were very comfortable. We would rent it again next year, but it is not available. The only complaint would be the coffee pot. We were not able to brew more than two cups and had to keep restarting the pot.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect 4th of July stay
House was even better than the photos. Extremely clean, complete with everything you would need for a week long stay. The bikes were a big help. We will be staying again.

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely wonderful experience in a beautiful home! Every amenity & detail were provided by owner
A Beautiful New & spotlessly clean home . EVERY detail & amenity were provided By the owners to make our stay comfortable & relaxing from the minute we arrived. We miss sitting on the porch already. We look forward to being a repeat customer! Thank you!

5/5 Excellent

Amazing house with great views
We rent homes for our family vacation each year. This was by far the cleanest place we have ever stayed. It felt like walking into a brand new home! The house was perfectly set up with lots of great amenities including bikes. The location of Empire is outstanding. Cute shops, great hiking, tennis courts, and the Sleeping Bear Bike Trail. We were outside everyday exploring the area and having fun. We even kayaked in Glen Arbor and went Horseback riding at Lake Ann. Our end of the day treat was a glass of wine on the front porch. We were all sad to leave, but we can't wait to come back to this house!!
