Property description

This “LA Cabin' sleeps 6+and is located on all-sports 570-acre Lake Ann at mouth of the Platte River with plenty of shade to enjoy the breeze and a fabulous porch to enjoy beautiful summer evenings. This is a unique 'up-north' getaway with a 168’ of shoreline and a private boat dock. Bring your own 'toys' or have a pontoon boat, fishing boats, trampolines and jet skis delivered to the lake for you by private companies in the area. The owner has provided (4) kayaks, a canoe, and a 16’ fishing boat for your use as well.

The cottage sleeps six comfortably, with two bedrooms and two king size beds on the 2nd floor, and a bedroom with king sized bed on the main level. On the main level, there is also a full living room with a large leather couch and two chairs. The kitchen is also overlooking the lake, a bedroom with a full bathroom and laundry room with a half bath is at the opposite end. Dine in or on the large deck where you can have a picnic with the kids or spend some quiet time reading. This deck always has a lake breeze to make this a favorite gathering place. This home is equipped with new appliances and has been decorated with North Cottage-style furnishings.

The lower lake level has a very large space equipped with a ping pong table. This is the perfect room for playing board games, or preparing for tomorrow's fishing trip.

Head down to the water, take your boat out and enjoy a fun-filled day fishing in this beautiful lake, or just capture the sounds of the summer as you take a quiet canoe or kayak ride at sunset around the lake. The large grassy lawn (80' x120') is great for playing badminton, tag, Frisbee toss or just sunning. At the end of the day sit around the fire pit and plan your next day of fun.

Scenic Lake Ann is just 12 miles from downtown Traverse City, and about a 20 minute drive to Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore. It is also ideally located just 10 minutes from Interlochen Center for the Arts where you can enjoy many summertime concerts by well-known musicians. There are over 27 golf courses in this area, and there are over 18 wineries in the local area to enjoy. Stay once and you will make visiting Lake Ann an annual memorable event for all the family. Bring your friends for early spring fishing, discount golf at all the courses, and of course, enjoy the spectacular beauty of the area in the Fall. During the winter, there are numerous snowmobile trails close by, with cross country skiing and hiking only about a mile away and Crystal Mountain's downhill slopes are 20 minutes from the cabin.

Walk, ride bikes, cross country ski or snowmobile throughout the Lake Ann area and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Stop in at the Village of Lake Ann and eat at the L.A Café or order a Country Side Pizza. John and Sandy's General Store will have anything else you could possibly need.
