5/5 Excellent

A delightful spot in Michigan
We headed to this wonderful area to attend the inaugural Half Ironman in Frankfort from Iowa. A quick drive over to the event, made this an ideal spot to relax and prepare. The cottage was bigger than we expected and super clean! The communication was very timely and kind from John. This was a great spot for us to land, we just didn’t have enough time to enjoy all it had to offer. We brought life jackets to enjoy the kayaks and lake, but ran out of daylight. We did get to enjoy coffee while watching the water, which is a personal favorite. I would definitely recommend a stay here and if we come back to the area, this can be our booking again! Thank you for sharing your home.

Quiet and perfect
We really enjoyed our stay here at turtle lake. The owners provided the perfect set up for a relaxing stay by the lake. Plenty of firewood was provided with nice chairs placed around the fire pit facing the lake. There was 2 sitting areas outside which included a deck and a stone patio. It rained one day and we utilized the enclosed porch. The living room has a large bay window with a lake view. It was quiet even though there is a camp ground across the lake. The house was very clean. Kayaks, canoe and row boat available for use. Paddle to the end to see turtles in the clear water. Conviently located near platte river and short drive to sleeping bear dunes and Traverse City.

5/5 Excellent

Great vacation!
The property was exactly as described and we really enjoyed our stay. We woke up and had coffee by the lake while the kids fished or swam. Then made our way to Lake Michigan for the day. We definitely would stay again!

5/5 Excellent

This place is great
We really had a good time at this property. We could have fit many more people—seriously nine beds in total—but we enjoyed it just the four of us. Be sure to bring lifevests because kayaking and canoeing on Turtle Lake was just the best—we definitely saw lots of turtles and the water was clear enough that we could see them under the water.

5/5 Excellent

Good enough
Was very surprised that no one had inspected the property after a severe storm prior to us occupying the cottage. We came to find out that a dangerous large limb was hanging over the fire pit and had to notify the manager. For the amount of the contract I would at least expect some one to look things over between occupants. Also if you want to make sure your septic tank is cared for, I would suggest at least providing one roll of toilet paper for new occupants upon their arrival.
