Very clean property and location was great for us. Would definitely stay here again !! Loved having coffee on the patio and watching the deers!!!! The screened
Porch was great even though not a lot of bugs!!
Thanks for staying at EmpireHouse. So glad you enjoyed your week.
Our favorite place to stay
This is the third time that we have come to stay in Empire and it is my favorite getaway. The house is always clean and well stocked, making it easy to cook there for the family. The newly remodeled bathrooms also looked lovely. We so enjoy being able to walk or bike to the beach and nearby shops. The area itself is so beautiful with the dunes, the bluff trail and the beach. We love it!
Thank you for coming back to vacation in EmpireHouse and for the favorable review. Happy to know you enjoyed EmpireHouse and the beautiful Sleeping Bear Dunes area.
great location in a very quiet area.
This house sits on a quiet street and is close to everything. The yard is beautiful and shaded so it's nice and cool. My grandkids even took hammocks and hung them in the trees in the backyard. They also put up a tent. The house was well stocked with towels and bedding. It is a very lovely house.
Thank you for the complimentary review. It's nice to hear you enjoyed EmpireHouse and had a great vacation!
Fabulous outdoor space!
My family has rented six cottages in the area (we love Sleeping Bear Dunes) and we all agreed this was the best. The yard is very private and the home has a great location on the village side of M-22. My husband's favorite traits of this place: screen room, spacious and clean, in the village but private. My son's favorite traits (he's five): cartoons on the TV (cable), smooshy carpet, big bedroom. My favorites: clean laundry room, unscented linens (for allergy sensitive), empty closets and drawers for plenty of storage space, and the screen porch. This home is solid and contains plentiful supplies. It's a great find. I hope you disregard everything I've written---I don't want to compete w others to get a week or two next year!
Wow! Thanks for the great review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at EmpireHouse.
WE had a great time in Empire, especially in our home for a week. The setting was quiet and private and after a good day's walk or bike ride, was the perfect place to relax and still feel the sea breeze. The home was the nicest we have stayed for comfort, privacy, and closeness to the beach. When we come back to Sleeping Bear, it will be the first place we check. Paul Wilson, Wellington, Ohio
Thanks for the great review! Glad you enjoyed the house and the beautiful national lakeshore area.
Grat house in a wonderful location!
This Empire house is spacious, comfortable, well maintained, and in good location. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and Cora was very easy to work with. The house is within walking distance of everything in Empire, but nicely secluded with trees around it which invited the occasional deer to visit. Empire is a great location only 10-30 minutes from Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Traverse City, Glen Arbor, Leland, and more.
A couple of thing to be aware of is that while there are two bathrooms only one has a shower and the other a tub. This worked out just fine for our family! Second, there is no air conditioning so you want to make sure you sleep with the windows and doors open upstairs otherwise it gets warm.
Our family highly recommends this house!
It's so nice to hear you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the review. We do describe the house amenities on the website, including the bathrooms, and I am glad you found it worked for your family.
Keeping the house cool during summer time can be managed, as you described. Also, we provide window and box fans for every room.
There is also a ceiling fan in the master bedroom. Keeping the window blinds and skylight shades closed during the day can also help keep the upstairs cooler during exceptionally hot weather. Most of the time it cools down at night in Empire, average temperatures are in the high 50's.
Thanks again for choosing to vacation at EmpireHouse.
