"Very nice comfortable place to stay. Walking distance to main ski lodge. Would definitely stay again in the future."
"This place was amazing. Easy instructions to get there and all the right amenities. Will definitely stay again."
"This place was awesome, the condo was so clean and nice. It had everything you need, I was very impressed with how much stuff was provided for us. The kitchen had everything you need to cook your own meals, a gas grill in the back. The area was so peaceful. It was located about 15 to 20 minutes from Torch Lake and about 35 minutes from Elk Rapids, which had an amazing beach. For the price it was worth the short drives to fun. Thank you for a great vacation!!!!"
