We really enjoyed our long weekend on Namaste Island. The fall colors were beautiful, we enjoyed going to a few wineries, had some delicious dinners at the restaurants in Traverse City and truly enjoyed the views and the peacefully rest of the cabin. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home!

Namaste Island was such a peaceful & relaxing place to stay & get away from it all! Great accommodations with a great view, and fantastic weather. We enjoyed the kayaking and canoeing and the peacefulness of the mornings, especially witnessing the dear roam the beach! Hope to enjoy another stay on Namaste Island!

A love story on Namaste Island. Michael surprised me with a two day get away on this beautiful island. I had no idea what was yet to come. A tour of the island, Grand Traverse wine and bouquets of flowers gave me an idea, something was going on. After the caretaker left (Al) who was amazing. Michael and I explored the island with our dog Jax. We walked to the end to put our feet in the water, next to my surprise I was watching Michael get on one knee in the water! I couldn't believe he was asking me to marry him. What a PERFECT moment together that we will forever hold in our hearts. Both our parents greeted us that evening with dinner, drinks and a bonfire. We will never forget these wonderful day spent here on the island, and we all look forward to coming back.

What a wonderful family vacation! Walking through the woods and along the shore with our gods was some of our favorite memories. My son didn't catch any fish but still had a fantastic kayaking and relaxing by the water. We did see 2 deer running through the trees. The property was absolutely perfect. Thank you so much!!

We didn't think it was possible to truly relax from our busy life. However we found it here on this enchanted island. The cabin offered fantastic accommodations (unlike a campground), but the island offered us the chance to enjoy the outdoors. We are thrilled to have found such a lovely place.

This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen & I have seen a lot of the US, Mexico, Italy & China. I need another week here because it has taken me almost a week to adjust to the beauty of island, the "cabin" (pretty fancy cabin), the water. The joy of our dog as she finally got to live her dream - run and swim and hang with us & run some more. This is a great house to hang with the family, we enjoyed the board games as well as the wifi. everything was wonderful & we would love to return.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cabin and island with us. It was an amazing Memorial weekend for my boyfriend & I. We appreciate you letting us spend time her. Nothing beats coffee and breakfast in either patio/deck. Thanks again! NAMASTE!
