Traverse City house description

This charming home has all the comforts for any family or two. Whether it is coffee on the deck to catch the sunrise, grilling out on the patio for a relaxing evening, or roasting s'mores over a bonfire.

The nautical living room that overlooks the lake is a great gathering spot for the adults. Teenagers can relax in the family room with gaming table and fireplace. Two bedrooms have queen beds and the dormitory has four bunk beds.

Don't forget your sunscreen. On Silver Lake there is plenty of water activities with sandy beach, dock (to moor your boat), swim raft and paddle boat.

Amenities: The home has a full equipped kitchen including microwave; a spacious dining room with seating for 12. There is a washer/dryer. All linens are included.

Area: The cottage is only minutes from downtown Traverse City, numerous golf courses, dining and shopping. Beautiful day trips to Mackinac Island, the Leelanau Wine Tour or Old Mission Peninsula are always an option.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: I grew up on Silver Lake in the 60's and 70's. Most of the families I knew by name. Definitely a four season playground. Swimming, Skiing, Skating, Fishing and Fun w/ Friends and Family. I still have 4 sisters that live in the area and frequent regularly.

          Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
          Great location on the Lake, with views of the lake to the North, South and East. Sandy beach, close to the water's edge. The cottgae is quaint and able to entertain large groups of family and friends.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The Silver Lake cottage is very private, but still close to all the action of Traverse City. Hundreds of options for entertainment and activities are just a short drive away or you could just relax and never leave the lakeshore paradise.
