Situated about one half mile off of the main road on a 12 acre parcel of land is River Bend Cottage - your home away from home. Nestled between the river and the base of the hills in the Boardman River Valley, this cozy cottage is located in as Feng Shui and pristine a place as it gets. Let the sounds of the nearby streams carry your stress away. Feel the rejuvenating energy that only nature can provide, and the peace that comes with being completely surrounded by state forest.

The Boardman River is a scenic river with abundant Trout - a Fisherman's paradise. The serenity of this place is truly mind-settling. It is truly a ''getaway'' but yet very close to Traverse City with all of its amenities.
Satellite internet which is great for checking emails and basic use, but we are on a capped data plan so we ask that you do not stream movies or play online games that require heavy data usage. Thanks...moreless
