Property description

Outstanding lake views and access. Outstanding beach and wading/swimming. Lake Ann is 527 acres of beautiful water with access to another lake by connecting Platte River through which it flows. It is rated as the top fishing lake in Benzie County and yet allows for many other kinds of simultaneous recreational uses. Virtually all species of freshwater fish are found here. There are only two other public accesses on this pristine lake. It is also fed by Ransom Creek which flows through a recreational hiking area and Preserve. The cottage itself is set on over two acres of land with 170 feet of Lake Ann Shoreline off Birch Glen Road. It is less than two miles from the charming village of Lake Ann which has a church, bank, restaurant, library, park, museum, tennis courts,professional offices, pizza place, Post Office, grocery and general store. State Forest land is within easy walking distance. Traverse City, with its many shops, theaters and restaurants only 13 miles to the east.


Comments from this summer's renters:: 'The cottage is very well laid out and has just everything!' 'The water was great and made the best coffee.' 'The bed gave me the best sleep I've had in a long time.' (Tom and Cheryl Tanner)

Your pictures just don't do the cottage justice! The WIFI is the strongest we've seen; we were able to Skype® our beach wedding all the way to Spain!

When you say the cottage has everything....it DOES have everything.....even wood is included for the fire ring.

Private and beautiful setting.: In times like these, when people are concerned with ecology and the environment, we are adjacent to woodlands, still undeveloped; some private and some state land. There is such a variety of trees-white birch, oak, maple, pine, aspen, cedar and others. They are truly beautiful in all seasons. One feels secluded here on the shores of this beautiful lake; yet is is near many other points of interest.

For the patient and watchful, there is an abundance of wild life. A deer or rabbit may be seen. Raccoon are abundant. Many waterfowl, including the mute swan and common loon, make their summer home here. The seven hundred acres of Lake Ann provide good habitat for various iinds of fish. Most plentifuyl are blue gill, large and smallmouth bass, and northern pike. This lake is partly spring fed, hence the water is clear and clean. It is the headwater of the famous trout stream, the Platte River.
