We were a big group of over 20 people — stayed here for 3 nights and unanimously declared one of the best vacations. Huge lawn was a big plus for small kids they never needed parents other than at food time. Safe and shallow beachfront with ready to sail boat. Traverse city was just short pleasure drive to spend all day or just pleasant evening. Kitchen was big and good enough for big groups. Best of all Jan is a good host ready to help and accommodate. — Srikanth, 2018
Fantastic vacation home! We've been back three times with our children and their families! So big we have plenty of space and all the modern conveniences. The little grandkids enjoy the sandy beach and clear shallow water, and the older ones love the raft with a diving board and slide, as well as the fishing which has been good on Lake Missaukee. The house is furnished beautifully and has areas to be together as well as nooks for quiet times and reading. One of the best features for us has been the two long dining tables for everyone to enjoy meals together. You will not be disappointed in all this spot has to offer! — Jenny S., 2017
Rented cottage on Lake Missaukee in Feb 2017. Great place. Ice fishing was great. Jan was a pleasure to work with. Will rent again. — Marcus C., 2016
