Property description

Welcome to the Sunset Beach House! Bring your family and friends and enjoy the four season wonderland of Northwest Michigan. Spend your days swimming and playing on the private, 225 foot long and wide sugar sand beach and then relax and enjoy the breathtaking sunsets from the three decks overlooking Grand Traverse Bay. For more detailed information, more photos and a video walkthrough please see our website (sunset-beach-house. com) listed below under the heading 'Links to more information:' and click on the 'CLICK HERE - Website for This Property Maintained by Owner'.

Our house is located on a very quiet, private road surrounded with tall trees. You'll feel a thousand miles away, even though supermarkets, department stores, fine restaurants, golf courses, spas and casinos are within 5 minutes drive. Sitting directly on the beach, our 3 bedroom 2 bath house is located halfway between Traverse City and Elk Rapids Michigan, on the East Arm of Lake Michigan's Grand Traverse Bay. Only 15 minutes from the Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City, the Sunset Beach House is an easy 4 hour drive from Detroit or 5 hours from Chicago.

You can pack light since our house is fully equipped. All bed linens, comforters, kitchen, bath and beach towels are provided; there is a washer and dryer in the house so you can bring the minimum amount of clothes. The large, gourmet kitchen is equipped with a full assortment of cooking utensils, pots and pans, microwave, coffee maker and bean grinder, toaster, electric teapot and other small appliances. There is a large propane grill on the deck with various barbecue utensils. There are 16 deck chairs, 2 large deck tables and 4 smaller outdoor side tables.

The two-story living room boasts a wall of windows overlooking the lake. You'll find a home theatre system with large LCD flat screen HDTV, DVD player, and digital cable with HD providing HD sports channels, HBO HD, Cinemax HD and many others. There is broadband high-speed internet access with WiFi on all three decks and all the way to the beach! There is a direct-vent wood-burning fireplace for those cozy evenings in front of the home theatre system.

The extra-large master bedroom and bath are located at the top of the stairs, and include a walk-in closet and separate sitting area with full sofa, chair and ottoman. The sofa also converts into a queen bed. Bedrooms 2 and 3 each contain a twin, 2 twin bunk beds and a twin trundle bed that provide sleeping for 8. There is also a queen size inflatable bed. There are beds to accommodate 8 people, with space for an additional 4 in the convertible sofa and inflatable bed.

For more detailed information, more photos and a video walkthrough please see our website (sunset-beach-house. com) listed below under the heading 'Links to more information:' and click on the 'CLICK HERE - Website for This Property Maintained by Owner'.

Outdoor activities abound! Bring your boat - there is a boat launch at Yuba Park, about a half mile north along the beach - or rent one locally. Fantastic sailing, waterskiing and fishing can be found right off the beach. There are more than 20 golf courses within 45 minutes drive, including world-class courses designed by Nicklaus, Palmer, Player, Doak, and Weiskopf. You'll find outstanding mountain biking and hiking at the Vasa Trail, less than 10 minutes drive, and at the numerous National Forest trails in the area. Great road biking can be found locally around the chain-of-lakes area as well as on the Leelanau peninsula. Take a day-trip wine-tasting at one of the nearly 30 wineries in the area. Visit Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore and climb the dunes. There are lots of fun kid activities nearby, like mini-golf, waterslides, go-karts and more. Don't miss the exceptional fall color tours in the autumn, and in the winter visit one of the more than 10 downhill ski areas within an hours drive or go sledding, tubing, skating or cross-country skiing.

We hope you enjoy our house as much as we do. Once you visit you'll make a vacation at the Sunset Beach House an annual family tradition!

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
The Northwest Michigan area is truly an all-season vacation paradise. Summers are filled with any activity imaginable: swimming, sailing, boating, waterskiing, fishing, paddling, hiking, biking, golfing, wine-tasting, or just relaxing. Fall brings outstanding fall colors, and winter brings an equal number of winter activities, including downhill and cross-country skiing, sledding, skating, tubing, snow-shoeing, etc. There is truly something for everyone here. And, of course, the unbelievably beautiful turquoise and deep azure waters of the Grand Traverse Bay!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
On a private road surrounded by tall trees, our house provides an incredibly quiet and relaxing setting. Even still, there are supermarkets, department stores, fine dining, world-class golf and spas within a 5 minute drive. This Lindal Cedar Home is very well-built and provides year-round weather protection; there is never a draft even in the most violent winter storms.
