Traverse City house description

Good dogs are welcome smoking is not. The weekly rate is $200/ night and only minutes away from the National Lake Shore Park- Sleeping Bear Dunes- and downtown Traverse City. It is a unique two bedroom cottage filled with natural light and wonderful panoramic views of Power Island, West Bay and Old Mission Peninsula . There are two bedrooms with one full bath on the second floor and a half bath, on the main level. The stairway leads to a bridge on the second floor that connects the master bedroom to the sky lit bathroom and walk in closet. The laundry is located in the basement. Although a mere five minutes from downtown, the large shaded yard facing the water, offers privacy that seems farther away. The location is literally surrounded by northern attractions; wine tasting is within walking distance as is the bike path that connects Traverse City to Sutton's Bay. There are a number of light houses to visit. Northport lighthouse is 25 miles north on M-22, and Old Mission is located on the end of the same peninsula, visible from the cottage.
The cottage has West Bay access with a small beach and fire pit. Boating from the beach and the use of an existing mooring ball are available. Power Island is a favorite boating destination. There are many nearby parks and beaches as well.
You can cook meals in the fully equipped kitchen or grill out on a large deck overlooking West Bay. After dinner, relax, sip wine and watch the moon rise over the beautiful ever changing water. This cottage has been featured in Traverse The Magazine and Northern Express paper as well as other publications. It is close to all that the Grand Traverse area and Leelanau County have to offer.The cottage is air conditioned.
V.R.B.O. number 307994 We never had a problem with Black Flies, Mosquitoes or Swimmers Itch. Since the water is down boating is the most likely use for the frontage.
