Traverse City cottage description

'Caddyshack' is the name of this charming cottage which is in a wonderful Traverse City location for the entire family. 3 Bedrooms, 2 baths and accommodations for 10 give you all the comforts of home while enjoying the area. All linens and towels are included and the kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer. The house is on a delightful corner lot so you are not disturbing neighbors. Sit on the wrap around deck and take in the breeze from the lake. The kids will especially like the sandy beach of Silver Lake, which is accessible only feet from the house across a small dead-end road. Families with toddlers and small children have returned year after year because the family loves the lake and location to all other attractions. One bedroom has a king bed, another a queen. And the third huge bedroom has two queens in it. We also provide a king aerobed that can be used as a king or unzipped to use as two twins.

Just 1/2 mile south of the house is a very large boat launch and trailer parking, where you can launch your boat or jet skis for the day. There are also boat rental companies that can deliver a pontoon boat or jet skis right to the launch for you.

Five minutes from the house you are in downtown Traverse City with all of its festivals and attractions; Cherry Festival, Art Shows, Film Festival, and numerous races. Shopping is abundant either in the Mall or downtown in the unique boutique shops. There are cinemas and concerts everywhere, and no shortage of water sports and attractions on Grand Traverse Bay. Take the family on a Tall Ship cruise, catamaran cruise, or just enjoy biking along the Tart trail by the Bay. If you don't care to bring your bikes, you can rent bikes for the day as well.

Traverse City is known for its fabulous restaurants as well. Many of the finer restaurants are located on the water or are scattered throughout the downtown area. Whether seafood, great steaks, Italian or Asian or just waterfront cuisine are to your liking, we have it all!

There are over 27 fine golf courses, and over 20 wineries throughout the area, casinos, and of course always things to do with the kids, such as miniature golf, bumper cars, etc.

Come be our guest at 'Caddyshack' and return home with fabulous memories of the time spent with your friends and family in Traverse City. Ask about our LAST MINUTE DEALS. June is great month to try TC Wine & Art Festival (21st),Leland Wine & Food Fest (14th),All Breed Dog Show (13-15),Glen Arbor Marathan & BBG/Brew Fest (22),Old Town Arts & Crafts Festival (29)
