Traverse City house description

When vacationing it is nice to be surprised to find that the place you chose is nicer than the description or pictures could show. This is that house! We travel a lot and know what we like when we rent a house so we have used our experiences to make sure that you will find everything you need in a fresh clean home. We have been renting houses and cottages for over 10 years so this is not somebody's basement or 'extra income' homes. We also maintain our house ourself and do not hire out the cleaning to a company. Since this is a new rental and renovated we don't have many reviews but if you look at our other cottage that we rent on Silver Lake you will see the top reviews that we always get. (347432) Our Market in Downtown Traverse City (Burritt's Fresh Market) is also rated as the one of the top specialty markets in Michigan and you can go to our website to see the quality of our market. I mention this to show the care, quality and cleanliness that we instill in all of our ventures. New carpeting, total repainting, new bedding, and fully equipped kitchen is only the beginning of this home. You will find the ageless brick style home has many waterfront windows and a huge deck off the dining room that has steps leading to the water. There are 2 bedrooms on the main level and the master has its own full bathroom and walk in closet. The second bath on the main level is also a full bath. The kitchen is large and has a breakfast bar. Off the kitchen there is a full laundry room so no leaving the property to wash a load of laundry if needed. The living room is comfortable for an evening read or just to sit and talk about the next days events. Heading downstairs to the full walkout lower level you will find a huge entertainment room that is 40 foot long with things to do if you want a break from the sun or for evening fun. There is also another 3/4 bath and bedroom with bunk beds for the kids. The walkout is open and bright and opens to the lake so it is easy access from the water. The house sits on a large 150+ft long waterfront which has an sandy beach area and a nice fire pit to have those evening star watching, s'more roasting and wine sipping end to a great day on the water. More Pictures Soon.... We have finished renovations and it is fresh and ready for rent.

          There is a very nice recreation park that is walking distance from the house that has soccer, softball, tennis, basketball, walking/running track, pavilion, restrooms, hiking nature trail and other recreational activities. Don't forget your fishing equipment as Silver Lake (and many surrounding lakes) are great for catching Bass, Perch, Walleye and many other fresh water fish. Book a charter on the bays for Salmon and Lake Trout or fly fish the many blue ribbon trout streams. A short drive away would include many golf courses, sight seeing including National famous Sand Dunes. The Interlochen Arts Academy is 6 miles away and has great venues. We also have many wineries on both the Leelanau peninsula and the Old Mission peninsula. But the nicest part of the area is just relaxing and reading at the waters edge sipping on a cold beverage with your toes in the water.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: My wife and I have lived on Silver Lake since 1992. We own and operate a specialty fresh market (Burritt's Fresh Market) in Traverse City which we opened in 1987. We enjoy traveling both near and far and have rented many VRBO homes, so we know what people want in a vacation rental. When this beautiful home came up for sale we knew it was perfect for VRBO, and since it was right across the lake from our home we knew we would be available if renters had any questions. Our two children and two Labradors have enjoyed living and playing on this all sports lake, and we have appreciated the closeness to Traverse City and surrounding area.

          Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
          We bought this rental because we knew that it was on the nicest part of the lake. It is off a quiet road, next to quiet neighbors, and it has some of the best frontage. Our goal in a few years would be to sell our home across the lake move into this house. Until that time we want others to enjoy our house and the great sunsets. We will continue to upgrade and improve the property every off season.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Unbeatable sunsets and a sandy beach that is perfect for swimming or fishing plus close proximity to the bustling summer activity in Traverse City make this location fantastic and memorable.
