Guest access

Guests will have access to the "Great Room" with vaulted ceilings and large screen TV. The kitchen will also be available to use but guests will need to coordinate with me.

Interaction with guests

I enjoy greeting guests and giving them tips on great places to see and activities to do. However I gauge my friendliness and attentiveness to guests wishes, if guests want a more secluded experience that is fine. After an active day in the area, I also recommend great places to eat and drink.

Other things to note

If you have more than 2 guests the additional guests will stay in great room on a top of the line twin mattress and a twin trundle bed.

Great location, especially during ski season. The home is clean, and comfortable. Just be aware that sharing the home may mean you will be sharing the same with another guest's pets.

My wife and I had an excellent stay with John! He was an excellent host, very knowledgeable about the area. His house was fantastic! Nice clean room with a king sized bed, very comfortable. We may need to make a second trip up to stay with him sometime during the winter!

John is a very thoughtful host and this is reflected throughout his very lovely home. I slept like a baby in the Monet room thanks to the down comforter and light-blocking blinds. The living space is welcoming and comfortable and having access to the full house, including the coffee station John had set up made me feel like I was at a home away from home.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in John's lovely home! As advertised, it was a beautiful, peaceful retreat. John was in communication with us several times to make sure we had everything we needed, since he wasn't able to be there to meet us. His thoughtful communication made everything smooth and pleasant. Thanks again, John!

We had a great, relaxing time staying at John's place for our recent getaway to northern Michigan. The house is beautiful and very comfortable with lots of upgrades and cool decor, in a quiet and convenient location not far from a lot of the sights. Truly felt like home away from home. John is a great host too. Did everything he could to make us feel at home and enjoy our stay, and gave lots of good suggestions for things to do and places to eat in the area. Also appreciated his willingness to open his home to our dog, as finding a pet-friendly place to stay is one of our main criteria when traveling.

We found this gem last minute and so happy we did! It was so cute and clean! John was so nice and very informative. He would answer any questions very quickly and would check in to see how everything was going. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks again John!!
