This cabin was a wonderful getaway - very homey and comfortable! I enjoyed the rustic charm, but also appreciated the a/C and entertainment system. The location was pretty ideal, close enough to local shopping to be convenient, but also steps to Duck Lake and a short drive to Lake Michigan, offering plenty of options for swimming, hiking, boating and wildlife watching. I would definitely recommend this quaint little home-away-from-home, and plan to return next year for a longer stay.

I stayed at the cabin on Duck Lake Peninsula this past week, with two other guests. We had a lovely time. The cabin is beautiful -- rustic and quaint, but also extremely well-kept. During our trip, we found a beautiful beach just 20 minutes away, along the Sleeping Bear Dunes national lakesore -- a spot along Lake Michigan, lined with sand dunes. It's close to shopping, but remote enough to be "away from it all."

My wife and I stayed here for four night at the end of July. It is a cute rustic cabin with room for two - four people. It is close to everything in the Traverse area. Nestled on Duck lake peninsula, it is a great place for fishing. I caught 4 large-mouth bass out of the nearby canal alone. The owner is very nice and prompt in her responses. The peninsula has four different spots where you can access the lake. Good if you are looking for a quick weekend getaway!
