Property description

This Beautiful Lake House called 'Always' is located on 100' of frontage on beautiful, 600 acre, Ann Lake in the village of Lake Ann, Michigan, near Sleeping Bear & Traverse City.

We have many more pictures to show you the House just email direct and ask for some more pictures.

This Non-Smoking home is equipped with new appliances and has been decorated with North Cottage-style furnishings. Including a riverstone fireplace. Linens are included.

The expansive yard (100' x 100') lakeside area features a stunning deck with a HOT TUB. A large hammock and tall mature shade trees for your 'reading' or 'napping' pleasure. Fishing is fabulous. the shoreline in front of the cottage is natural and full of wildlife. We swim off the dock but the shore edge is natural (muck). the Lake is very clean and offers sandbars for swimming and sunset pontoon cruises. The new Lake Ann beach park is sandy and accessible by boat.

On the waterfront: a full dock with 16 square deck, row boat, 2 person kayak/canoe, 3 kayaks, and paddle boat are provided in the rental price. A 50 HSP 24 foot pontoon boat can also be rented for an additional $700 per week. The large grassy lawn is great for playing baseball badminton, tag, frisbee toss or just sunning.

Surrounded by thousands of acres of State Forests and miles of hiking, cross country skiing and snowmobiling trails, the Lake House is the perfect place to base your Northwest Michigan vacation activities.

Just minutes from the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore and Interlochen Fine Arts Academy, the Benzie area is host to many forests, inland lakes and rivers, as well as Lake Michigan's gorgous beaches. Championship Golf is five minutes away (Mistwood), Traverse City, a short 20 minutes to the East, offers fabulous dining and shopping opprtunities, plus the regional airport.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: This is our family. We love our Lake Ann Cottage and Esch Beach in Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore 20 minutes from our Cottage. We always have a picnic there and grill brats over an open fire, then watch the sun set over Lake Michigan.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Ann:
This Lake Ann Cottage is not a rental Property, rather it is a Family Cottage that we choose to rent out a few weeks a year to help pay the taxes and Insurance!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Peace of Mind to know that the next few hours you have nothing to do! But enjoy nature and wildlife, take out a kayak, go fishing, golfing and maybe read a good book. . . decisions, decisions!
