High Lake Hideaway

Five Stars!

Great place and even better owners!

We have stayed at this location the past 2 years and we are going back again next year. We had 9 last year with 5 adults taking the 3 upstairs bedrooms and 4 kids in the 2 basement bedrooms. We stayed for 2 weeks this past summer. The house itself is well laid out for a large group. I like that the basement bedrooms are not directly under the main living room on the main floor. The family room in the basement could hold a lot of kids if you needed that but our group only used the basement for sleeping in bedrooms. With 2 families there was really plenty of room. The lake is very calm. Perfect for paddleboarding. It's normally quite but you occasionally get a jet ski or motor boat. Not very often. Kids love the trampoline and paddleboarding on the lake. The kids also did some fishing off the dock with pretty good results this past year. We didn't get a chance to interact much with the neighbors. We never saw anyone on the right side (as you look out the back) and the left side was just 2 people most of the time. There are a few people out on the lake normally but it's not busy at all. Some days it feels like you are the only ones there. You are 15 to 20 minutes from just about anything you might need. Preegos is around the corner. There is a convience store less than 5 minutes away and then Groleau Farm Market and Oleson's food store is 10 minutes away. We could find almost anything we needed at Oleson's but we did also hit Meijer and Sams. Costco is actually closer than either. The Hubschneider's are amazing hosts. They work so hard on making sure everything is perfect. I would say that even if you don't rent here put Hubschneider and VRBO in google and pick one of their places. We are a pretty self sufficient group but we have been spoiled by how responsive they are to whatever is going on at the property. We just mention something and it seems like they are on it immediately. They know their properties so well too, and are also experts on the area. I just can't recommend them enough. We had never stayed at the same place twice until this place and the Hubschneider's are a big reason why.

Chandler's Charm

The cabin was charming and Kurt took care of a minor problem immediately.

We loved Traverse City and this cabin was in a perfect location. The fishing was good and the cabin had all the amenities. We enjoyed our stay and would return in a heartbeat. Kurt was a great host. I highly recommend this property.

Main House

Absolutely Wonderful!!!!
Five Stars! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This house was PERFECT. And we are PICKY!!! The house was extremely spacious and our four families did not feel cramped together at all. Spotless, everything worked as it should, no maintenance problems at all! My husband is a licensed builder and plumber, and he was impressed! The kitchen has everything you could possibly need, and we are a “Big Fat Greek” family that cooked every day!!! Beds are comfortable, even the pullouts! The linens and towels are all very nice and good quality. Gas fireplace was wonderful for the cool evenings. Beautiful pool right off our deck. We really couldn’t ask for anything better. The house was perfect but Kurt and his boys were even better. They are so kind and helpful. They were around every day to make sure the grounds were as they should be, and that we had all we needed. The beach area is beautiful and the lake is clean and huge!! We had a slight problem with our boat, that we brought up and docked at the resort, and they helped pull out the boat, and had their awesome friend there within an hour, and it was fixed and ready to go!! We could not have done it without them!! And if we sent a text with questions, Kurt answered within minutes! We also walked through several of the cottages and the apartment, and they are all cute and clean. Most all have been updated. Some are a little too rustic for me, but everyone of them was spotless! I would HIGHLY recommend the Brookside Cottages. We will definitely be coming back next year!!!! Thank you Hubschneider family for a wonderful vacation!!!!

Beautiful cottage 

Five Stars! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We had a great stay at the cottage. 3 adults and 4 small kids. The beach was where we spent most of our time. It is shallow enough that the adults can sit in the chairs and let the kids play in the water. We had a fire every night outside. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast and dinner.
The property manager was great. I emailed him with an issue- not a big deal, and he called me right back. The coffee pot didn't work and he just dropped off a brand new one. It would've been fine to go without but it was nice that he came by.
We had a great time using the kayaks and paddle boards. It was a great weekend and we will definitely be back! Thank you!!!

Amazing home on beautiful Silver lake! 

Five Stars! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We stayed for Labor Day weekend with 4 families. It was A perfect house to accommodate everyone. We made all our meals there with a totally equipped kitchen. We enjoyed swimming in the lake and the fire pit on the beach. The yard in front was perfect for our kids to run around. They loved playing in the downstairs game room. Kurt was great and stopped by and was willing to help quickly for anything we needed. We didn’t want to leave! Thank you for an amazing stay!

Brookside Cottages - Great property and owner. Overall amazing experience and would definitely do again! 

Five Stars! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We had a great time at the property. We stayed in the main house. It was very clean and inviting. We were surprised the the kitchen so much cookware and dishes. The kids were at the pool and fishing on the dock everyday. We loved having all of the extras available like kayaks, paddle boards, rec room, and playground. The owners were very nice and friendly and available if we needed anything. The location was nice and quiet. Would definitely book this property again.

Bass Lake Retreat

Nice house on Bass Lake
Five Stars! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Beautiful quiet lake, there is a bit of sand near the entrance and it's weedy further out, but does not present a problem for swimming. Beautiful sunrises right opposite the deck. Easy drive to both Sleeping Bear and Traverse City. The house is very comfortable and has all the necessities and more. Kurt was extremely quick to respond and a pleasure to communicate with. Something I did not realize which other people might find useful to know, especially with young kids: upstairs there are two family bedrooms (bottom full bunk, top twin bunk, and another full loft bed very high up, in each), but no bathrooms, which are on the ground floor and in the basement. Overall, one of the best houses we've stayed in up north, and we've been going to the same general area for about 15 years.

High Lake Getaway

Perfect place for a large-group vacation
Five Stars! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We had a wonderful experience on this property. The house is lovely and clean, the little guest cottage was perfect for some additional space, and the lake is a great place to relax. Kurt - the manager of the property - was amazingly responsive and friendly. I highly recommend this property as a home-base for your up-north vacation.

Chandler Lake Lodge

What a fun and relaxing week! Great place to stay!
Five Stars! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

What a great place to stay if you are traveling to the Northern MI/Traverse City area. Centralized location made it easy to travel everywhere we wanted to go. We also had a blast just hanging out at the cottage fishing and swimming.

Sunset Cove

Perfect place for the family for a week.
Five Stars! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The house, the location, the hosts were all excellent. Could not imagine a better family experience. Plenty of room for 4 couples and 2 grand babies. A must see!!

Thanks you all. We'll be back.

Duck Lake Landing

A beautiful home.
Five Stars! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The home was perfect for our family reunion of 14 people.
Plenty of space, very clean and very comfortable.
Kurt and Tammy the property managers along with his two sons Chris and Justin are over the top with their customer service and attention to details to make sure you have a great experience.
He called us a few days ahead of our arrival to tell us the AC was not working. He supplied us with window AC units and fans to use until he was able to make the repairs to the AC unit.
We caused a few mishaps of our own with the water jet skis. Kurt was very responsive to help us out.
Duck Lake is a great lake for boating with sand bars and a state park to boat over and enjoy the beach. For such a large lake, I was surprised how little boat traffic there is.
I have rented several homes in northern Michigan before.
I would highly recommend renting from Kurt and Tammy Hubschneider. They have several properties to select from.
I know I will.
