We had a great time exploring the area. We went kayaking & SUP on Crystal Lake, hikes Sleeping Bear Dunes, visited Be Dazzled & the Alpaca Farm, and enjoyed visiting many towns and beaches. The Benzie House accomodated our family of 6 nicely. We made full use of the spacious kitchen and well stocked appliances. We would definitely stay here again if ever back to this area.

Angie was professional and prompt on New Years Day
My husband found out the hard way there wasn't any hot water in the shower. Local TV channels for morning news would have been nice, but we managed to enjoy the house as the location and home were great. The linen thing was confusing. I didn't see where I ordered linen service according to email so I brought my own only to arrive to a tub. Will I be charged now, not really sure. The house and property are lovely and we enjoyed our overall stay. We apologize for the confusion with the linens! Also, the cottage now has cable and wifi!

The only person that I really dealt with was Danielle and she was very helpful in getting our reservation set up. Because we were coming in late, she also set up the Treasure Trove certificate. (Even though our time was short, we used quite a few of the coupons!)
The Benzie House was very comfortable and clean. We have stayed at few properties, over the years, and this place ranks pretty high as far as the amount of space for a family and the amenties that are available. There are a lot of really cool features in the house, especially the skylights that can actually be opened!! We also appreciated the window safety nets in the child's room. The backyard and deck is amazing!

I only worked with the person who helped me with reserving the location and she was GREAT!
This house was PERFECT for what we needed! Luckily it wasn't too hot during our visit, so a box fan in the window in the bedroom upstairs worked just fine for us :) Perfect distance from Beulah Beach, Frankfort Beach, and the Sleeping Bear Dunes! We will definitely be back!

Danielle was very responsive and quickly got back to us for any questions we had. She was great to talk with on the phone. It was a little hard working around the Monday, Wednesday, Friday hours when we had a question that came up.
We really appreciated the hand written note and gift of the local wine from the owners. That was a very thoughtful touch!
