Scott and Nancy are delightful folks, and their well appointed home exceeded all our expectations. There are kayaks, a canoe and a rowboat to take advantage of a gorgeous lake with great fishing and wildlife searching. The resident loons woke us each morning just in time for amazing sun rises-the sun sets are fabulous too. Their home is well situated for Interlochen music, the Leelanau peninsula and Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City, multiple farmers markets and wine tours. We took advantage of the Lake Ann brewing company and the Red door coffee shop. There is a lot to do-or do nothing at all but enjoy!
