This is a very well-managed home in a location that was even better than we expected. It had everything we needed, plus many niceties like board games, yard games, and bluetooth speaker. We were also surprised with a gift basket upon arrival including wine and custom glasses. Kayaking down the river was a ton of fun - it's about 1 hour to the next outlet which was just perfect. Pretty much everywhere we wanted to go in TC was just a short drive. Definitely recommend.

This home is by far the most well equipped rental we’ve had in vacation rentals. All we really had to bring is food, clothes, and our preferred recreational gear for fun. Alison and Heather are great hosts and were quick to respond to any questions or issues we had. The property was well maintained on a beautiful setting along the river. There was a bookshelf full of games, books, and some movies (plus Netflix) for in house entertainment, but we didn’t use it much because we wanted to be outside. The back deck is fantastic. They had plenty of yard games too. To set expectations for the serious river recreation enthusiasts, please note that the river is swift moving at the house and just upstream from a public access site. It was a little tougher to get in and out of the river at the house, but the public access site (in short walking distance) was easier for all to use. It was a popular spot for kayakers to go in or out. For the trout fishermen, it was a more difficult place to fish but there are other locations within a short drive that we had success with (caught 3 species). If you want more options check out the railroad trestle 3 miles down River Road (respect private property) or the trail systems down stream. Just do your river research early to make the most of your trip. Traverse City is a fantastic vacation region with tons of places to eat, hike, fish, or whatever other recreational fun. We would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

I booked this house for my 50th birthday celebration with friends after seeing the great photos and stellar reviews. The property manager checked in ahead of our check-in time and I mentioned it was my birthday...and when we arrived we found a cake and balloons! Everything was adorable, nice quality, clean. The kitchen was well-equipped with essentials, snacks, and kitchen tools. Gorgeous (huge) backyard and the prettiest brand-new wraparound deck with brand-new gorgeous deck furniture. The campfire area was fun and beautiful. Location felt remote while being only 5 miles from a major supermarket. I would definitely recommend this house for a group of adults looking for a getaway! Well-maintained and a perfect place to gather in comfort and style. :)

This place was awesome! Literally comes with anything you need! A welcome basket greeted us with glasses (to keep) and a bottle of wine. The layout was great for privacy to all. We loved the bonfire pit by the river. The large deck was perfect for our family to hang outside. Lots of yard games to use. I’ve used VRBO for years and this home was one of my favorites!

Family of 5 adults enjoyed a lovely stay at this VRBO! The home is impeccable, very well appointed and updated. The back deck is a lovely entertainment area. The kitchen is well stocked and updated. The living area has a great array of games and books. Would definitely return if in the area!

We spent a long Father’s Day weekend at this very clean and well stocked riverfront cottage. The beds were really comfortable and the large deck was great place to hang out near the river. The house is minutes from “Wheels on rails” which just opened this year. Allison the property manager was helpful and nice. We’ll definitely try and stay here again when in the Traverse city area.

Wow!!! beautiful home nestled in a picture perfect serene location. Allison is a wonderful gracious host! The home is in a most beautiful quiet place on the river with a wonderful deck to enjoy the outdoor. The home is so beautiful, clean and welcoming. Kitchen had anything we needed for our meals. Allison even provided us with all the ingredients to make smores, yummy. There are many games (indoor and outdoor games), books and movies. The beds are so comfortable and the beddings nice, clean and soft. Allison is super nice and so easy to communicate with. Everything about our long weekend was amazing. We Will definitely highly recommend and will plan to go back.
