Traverse City cottage description

Enjoy all the comforts of home in classic northern Michigan style! This spacious, well-maintained vacation home has everything you need for a carefree, peaceful retreat or family getaway. It's conveniently located just 15 - 20 minutes from Traverse City on Duck Lake Peninsula - a beautiful wooded community surrounded by lake views, great for walking, biking, boating, or just relaxing and getting away from it all. Close to town, yet peaceful and quiet, away from crowds and traffic. Duck Lake is a beautiful 1900-acre lake with a sandy bottom; if your group enjoys watersports or fishing, you can be on the water in minutes any time you wish, and on one of the best all-sports lakes in the area. A private boat launch is located just a short distance from the cottage; a lake access area is located across the street for swimming and lakeside picnics. In the evening, cook up a feast for your group in our fully-equipped kitchen or outdoors on the gas grill. Enjoy a backyard campfire, or relax by the fireplace while watching your favorite movie or sporting event! Large windows and sliding glass doors provide ample daylight or privacy as needed, with easy access to decks on front and back. Additional amenities for your comfort and convenience include high-speed internet, central air and heat, ceiling fans, soft water, full-size washer and dryer, and more. 2015 WEEKLY RENTALS WILL BE DISCOUNTED 10% IF BOOKED BY DECEMBER 31, 2014.
