The SpaceThe location is amazing if you like water and beautiful sunsets. The house is a very tight and solid 1950s ranch home with old charm and modern upkeep. Perfect for a family or a small group of friends. Open living room dining room and kitchen area perfect for a small gathering. Newly installed hardwood floors in the kitchen and living room. Two full bedrooms with a full bathroom on the main floor can accommodate 4-6 guests depending on your sleeping arrangements. The living room has a large sectional and couch to seat 9 easily. Newly purchased entertainment system with HDTV, receiver, AppleTV, blue ray, and premium speakers is available for those times when you want to stream music or watch Netflix after a day on the beach. Wifi internet available upon request. Clean full basement with fireplace, laundry, and a second bathroom and shower, a love seat and chairs. Bonus ping pong table downstairs if you want to have a late night tournament...not that it has ever happened before... Guest AccessMain house and basement. Use of the garage if desired for extended stays. The back patio and grill are also available for cookouts. Remember to turn off gas and clean up the grill after you are done. Sheets, towels, and full kitchen are available. Please leave it clean and fully equipped for the next guest or for me when I visit from Boston. :) Interaction with GuestsI live in Boston and will only likely send messages or respond to phone calls. My sister and parents live nearby and will be available for arrivals, departure, and urgent needs. The NeighborhoodVery quiet small town. It is busier in the summer months with a few town celebrations. Most of the time, you have the entire beach to yourself for a morning run or a small beach fire at night. The marina and campground is quiet and only frequented by long term guests. There is a restaurant and bar as well as a great coffee and ice cream shop on M-22. Getting AroundYou need your feet or a bike to get around the town. A car is essential if you want to go shopping for food or visit the other local coastal towns of Frankfort, Onekama, or an hour drive to Traverse City for large malls. Other Things to NoteWe hope you treat our summer home as you would your own. Use it, relax, invite a friend, and treat it with care. We love it and would be there year round if we could. Shoes are left at the door and sand gets washed off your feet with a hose before you enter to preserve the new wood floors. Too bad I get paid a lot more to work in Boston...or I would be here all year and you would be out of luck! Entertainment system. Samsung HDTV is connected to a Sony receiver which controls and connects an Apple TV and a BlueRay player. The sound comes out of two tower speakers. Turn on the tv, receiver, and select your source with the Sony receiver. If you use the Apple TV, remember to log out of Netflix, and the Apple Store before you leave so the next person doesn't accidentally charge or use your accounts.

      The SpaceNote: For those of you considering booking November and later (until spring of 2017): There won't be running water at the tiny house during this time. We have hosted a few groups who have welcomed this change of pace and change of lifestyle. Please seriously consider whether you are up for it or not! The water lines for the tiny aren't winterized. There will be low-tech water systems in place (a water filter with a spigot and a solar shower bag). The path down to the tiny won't be plowed so you will have to park near the road and walk down to the tiny (less than 100 yards). We will provide a sled you can use to bring your items in. If you are comfortable with this, feel free to book. If you have questions, feel free to message me! Kitchen, dining room, living space, and a loft... all in one room! This is a tiny house on wheels built (by us!) on a 7 ft by 18ft. trailer. There is a ladder to the loft, so make sure to check out the photos to see if this is something you would be comfortable using. The bed is a foam mattress (Air B and B doesn't have this option so I selected "real bed"). Bathroom facilities are a composting toilet, very near the house. Also near the house is a delightful outdoor shower with hot water. Guest AccessYou will have the whole tiny house to yourselves. Enjoy the hammock, relax by a bonfire, enjoy the stars. We live on the property, not far away so are available if you have any questions, etc. We have a two night minimum stay but if you are interested in just one night and the calendar says that night is available, please message us and we'll see what we can do. Our intention is for the tiny house to be accessible price-wise to folks. If the price you see for the dates you want is not accessible, please message us and let us know what would work for you. Interaction with GuestsFor most visitors, we will be available to meet with you if you have questions. There is a book in the house full of info on our favorites...favorite place for breakfast, favorite beach, mt. bike, etc. We are not offering breakfast as part of a night at the tiny house but if you would like breakfast, please contact us and, if our schedule allows, we would be happy to provide a great breakfast for $15 per person. The NeighborhoodJoyfield Road is full of old family farms and orchards. Benzie County's famous Mystery Spot is just moments away. Getting AroundWithin 15-20 minutes of Frankfort, Elberta, Watervale Inn, Arcadia Bluffs, Crystal Mountain, the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy's Arcadia Dunes protected lands. Across the street from Pete's Woods protected area for hiking, spring wildflower watching, and mt. biking (1.5 mile excellent trail!). We are about 8 minutes drive from a trail head with a great short hike to a beautiful beach. It takes about 15 minutes to drive to Elberta and Frankfort beaches. Other Things to NoteWe are pet-friendly and have hosted several groups with dogs. There is a $25 additional cleaning fee, which will not be included in your AirBnB total. If you are anything like us, you like local food. If you would like, we would be happy to prepare a gift basket of locally curated items to welcome you upon your stay...like locally roasted fair-trade coffee, local gluten free brownies, local eggs, locally and organically grown kale, etc.

      Looking for a Lake Michigan vacation? Relax and enjoy it we'll supply the cottage, and the lake. This cottage is available in October. The decks are roomy and the grills are ready! The kitchens are furnished with all the amenities, including the coffee maker. The bedrooms have comfortable beds. Cable and the Internet are included (so are board games and books.) Even the family dog will have a great time. Available again after the winter starting in Late March. The Great Outdoors: Is there anything like 'Up North' Michigan? We love the sound of the waves as we wake or washing us away to sleep. Enjoy them from the balcony or the roomy deck. The Arcadia Dunes Conservancy just to our north offers pristine bike and walking trails, or just visit the Scenic Lookout at the top of the hill for an unforgettable vista. If you're the water type, get in that kayak or canoe and paddle away. Try charter fishing, or test your skill on the rivers and inland lakes instead. Take the kids to the Platte River fish hatchery to see your DNR dollars in action. Maybe you are more the golfing type - Arcadia Dunes course is just three miles away, and many more courses await you in the area. Great restaurants, festivals, horseback riding, art and shopping- the list never ends. And always, the wind, and the waves to enlarge your soul.

      Arcadia has a little bit of everything for everyone! With the great location of this home and all the wonderful adventures in every direction, you won't be disappointed in Arcadia. This comfortable home is a short walk from the shores of Arcadia Lake and has a boat dock for your use. For shoreline fun, take the group down the half-mile stroll to Arcadia Beach on beautiful Lake Michigan. There is plenty of room for the whole family with a king bed in the master bedroom, three bedrooms with queen beds, and a full and a twin in another bedroom! A flat-panel TV and plenty of seating in the living room makes it a great spot for gatherings. Known for some of the best golf courses and fishing in the state, Arcadia Lake is a small lake near Lake Michigan. The world-class Arcadia Bluffs Golf Course, just two miles away from Arcadia, is a 245-acre daily-fee club open to the public 7 days a week from mid-April through mid-November. The facility is designed to foster enjoyment in guests of all golfing abilities, with a premier 18-hole layout, full practice range, and separate short-game facility. Nearby you'll also find the family-owned Chestnut Hills Golf Course, "where golf is still just a game," with 18 holes, a warm-up green, and a driving/practice range. The Bear Lake Highlands course, established in 1964 with its rolling terrain, water on 7 holes, and a great view of Bear Lake, is only 12 minutes away from your home at Pointe Arcadia. Heathlands Golf Course is 10 minutes away, Crystal Lake Golf Club is 15 minutes away, and Crystal Mountain is 26 minutes away with two courses and a water slide. For an eventful and diverse golfing experience, you could practically try a new golf course every day! As for fishing, deep water close to shallow water in nearby Lake Michigan brings seasonal runs of brown trout, a few chinook, and coho salmon. October and November are prime times for brown trout and steelhead. The former state record brown trout (34 pounds, 6 ounces) was caught there in 1984! Manistee County has multiple fishing tournaments each month from May through September. Access to Lake Michigan near Arcadia can be difficult but a 1997 grant from the Great Lakes Fishery Trust allowed for the creation of a 10-foot by 40-foot platform on Arcadia Lake near Grebe Park. There is parking for 15 vehicles. For more exploring, take a drive on the beautiful M-22 loop, recently voted "America's Number One Best Scenic Autumn Drive" by 10Best and USA Today. This stretch of road is pretty in every season and will take you to wineries, art galleries, and numerous small towns along Lake Michigan's coast full of friendly Michiganders! Towns along the loop include Arcadia, Manistee, Onekama, and Frankfort, among many others full of possibilities. Arcadia is home to Arcadia Daze every July as well as Inspiration Point, the highest point (and the best view) on the shore of Lake Michigan. Manistee, the county seat, is known for the historic Ramsdell Theater, 1.5 mile Riverwalk, and the Little River Casino. Each year, it holds a Forest Festival on July 4th and Old Christmas Weekend in early December. Onekama is known as the "Two Lake Town" as it offers shoreline along Lake Michigan as well as the peaceful Portage Lake. It also has restaurants, antique shops, a farmer's market, and a Fall Festival each October. Just north of Frankfort is the famously picturesque Point Betsie Lighthouse, but you will want to stop first in this quiet town and enjoy the large Victorian houses along tree-lined streets amid galleries, specialty shops, and waterfront restaurants. Farther along M-22 is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, listed on CNN Travel's list of "20 Can't-Miss Beaches" and named "The Most Beautiful Place in America" by ABC's Good Morning America viewers! With 35 miles along Lake Michigan, two islands, 21 inland lakes, 400-foot sand dunes, hiking and biking trails, and the Maritime Museum, this park brings in over a million visitors each year. If you take M-22 all the way up and around Leelanau County through more beautiful locations and charming small towns, you'll end up in Traverse City, the Cherry Capital of Northern Michigan and one of America's Top 10 Beach Towns (by Fodor's Travel Guides). This area is home to 34 wineries; golf championship courses with designs by pros; premier spas; baseball; the National Cherry Festival lasting 8 days every July including concerts, a crafts fair, a vehicle show, parades, and fireworks; the Traverse City Film Festival in July-August, one of the largest film festivals in the Midwest; and the Taste of Traverse City event each September. For even more adventuring options, including canoeing, kayaking, snowmobile rentals, and ATV rentals, visit http://www.crystalbooking.us/michigan-canoe-and-kayak-rentals/. When you stay in Arcadia, you're close enough to peaceful nature to relax and close enough to everything else to have the vacation of a lifetime.

      Our summer is booked, however, September and October can be incredible and Thistledew makes a perfect home base for leaf peeping or winery tours. Picture yourself escaping the pressures of work and life, retreating to a serene haven where life is easy and the toughest decision is where to find the most colorful leaves or the county's best burger. Whether to drive or hike, or later in the year, ski.

Lots, or little to do. Your well behaved four footed family is welcome to join you. We are 15 minutes from several well marked nature trails, 20-30 minutes from the Manistee National Forest, and about an hour from Traverse City.

The possibilities are limitless, the choices yours. Bring your camera to capture the incredible snow scapes, the famous Pt.Betsie Lighthouse, secluded beaches, or even the turkeys in the back yard.
