Interlochen cottage description

Here is the beautiful lakefront retreat you've been looking for, rated by renters as the most picture perfect cottage in the area.

Nestled in a gorgeous wooded yet sunny lot with 135 ft.lakefront where you can enjoy breakfasts and barbecues overlooking sweeping lake views. This picture-perfect cottage offers plentiful nearby outdoors and cultural activities. Enjoy kayaking, great fishing and swimming in the privacy of your own cottage as well as water skiing, canoeing, golfing (nearby), hiking, and biking. You can moor small watercraft (kayaks, canoes and rowboats) at the private dock.

Enjoy the panoramic view of Green Lake from inside the cottage. Large sliding doors in the charming master bedroom and spacious living area, with an open floor plan, let you view spectacular sunrises over the lake. The wrap-around deck and patio are complete with outdoor furniture, a hammock, a grill and a fire place. Another table at water's edge is perfect for drinks and stargazing.


Features & Amenities: On cooler nights you can enjoy cable TV, VCR or a DVD in front of the wood-burning fireplace in the charming living room with its high cathedral ceiling. For your enjoyment a variety of games is available for a night of family fun!!

While you will feel like you are miles away from everything, you can enjoy a wonderful performance at the world famous Interlochen Center for the Arts, just two miles away (check Interlochen website for great performances). You can explore other small towns and the wineries in the area, while Traverse City with its entertainment, gourmet restaurants and plentiful shopping is only twenty minutes away. An occasional golf game just minutes from home will make your trips to the cottage a delightful and rich experience.

The two bedroom cottage, which sleeps 6-7, features 1 Queen, 2 Twins, a sofa bed and comfortable deluxe futon. The many amenities include two lovely remodeled bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, linens, and a washer/dryer.

Why the Owner Chose Interlochen: While we live in the Detroit-Birmingham, Mi area, our favorite thing to do is spending time at the cottage, visiting the Interlochen Arts Academy and Traverse city and exploring all the charming small towns and villages in the area.

We looked for a charming summer cottage that would be on a beautiful lake, very private, and close to Interlochen Arts Academy, with its many faceted programs. We also wanted to be close to golf courses and near Traverse City and its varied offering of good restaurants and fun activities. When we found this cottage, it took us but one quick look to decide that this was all we have hoped for. It has been an excellent choice and our family has spent many happy hours here.
