Traverse City cottage description

Remember your childhood memories of wonderful Northern Michigan summers or create new ones with your family! This totally renovated, 1,300sq/ft, 5 bedroom, 1 bath, cottage is full of north woods charm. Your visit to Northern Michigan on Chandler Lake will always be remembered. We rent from Sunday to Sunday in the summer and nightly 'out-of-season'.

The cottage is situated on a small, quiet fishing/swimming lake with 100 feet of sandy beachfront. The hard sand bottom lake has a gradual slope for the first 10' so it is swimmer friendly. Chandler Lake is one of the best fishing lakes in the area, mainly for blue gill, perch and bass . It has many coves for you to explore and right in front of the cottage is a small sandy island you will love to visit by rowboat. Imagine roasting marshmallows on the beach by a crackling fire under the clear star-filled nights. Sit on one of the 2 decks and watch the ducks and loons drift by in the evening while the sun sets.

Amenities: The cottage is fully furnished, decorated in the north woods theme and sleeps 10 in beds. The bedrooms are cozy- In BR 1 we have a Queen size bed, BR 2 has two twin beds, BR 3 & 4 each have a Queen size bed, BR 5, in the lower level, has a full bed. In every bedroom we have new mattresses and quilts, sheets and pillows.

The kitchen is fully equipped with coffee maker, microwave, oven/stove, blender, toaster, pots & pans, cooking utensils and dishes (no dishwasher). We have cable TV, VCR with over 100 movies, Wi/Fi Internet, CD player, a washer/dryer and iron & board. All towels and linens, soap and paper products are provided.

A small walkout basement has a recreation room with a cable TV, air hockey and board games. Off of the walkout is a covered porch with seating. This cottage has central heating (no airconditioning), was renovated in 2011 w/ new kitchen cupboards, hardwood flooring, carpet, paint, bathroom fixtures, windows and lighting.

On the beach next to the new dock is a fire pit, chairs and picnic table. We have 2 decks, all of which have wooden patio furniture or Adirondack chairs. We have a rowboat and life jackets for your use.

Activities: The cottage is only 15 minutes from beautiful downtown Traverse City. Close by you will find great shopping, dining, boating, sailing, golf, tennis, skiing, hiking, fishing, biking, horseback riding, snowmobiling, many wineries, fully renovated State Movie Theatre, casinos and the VASA Trail. Also within 40 minutes are beautiful lighthouses, Sleeping Bear Dunes State Park and Interlochen Performing Arts Center. Northern Michigan is also known for its many festivals (The National Cherry and Film Festivals, to name just a couple) and many other quaint towns - Suttons Bay, Torch Lake, as well as Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Mackinac Island, about 1 - 2 hours north.

Across the road from the cottage is a state park with miles of wooded walking trails and a playground. Just around the corner is Peegeos, a family restaurant that is the local hangout with the best pizza in town. Also, a small grocery/convenience store is within 1 mile.

Golf: We have many great golf courses nearby, including Arcadia Bluffs, Tree Tops, Boyne Mtn, Harbor Springs and Grand Traverse Resort's Jack Nicklaus' Bear course which is 15 minutes away.
