Property description

This striking contemporary home awaits you in Traverse City; named the "Most Beautiful Place in America" on Good Morning America. Private waterfront on Ruth Lake, connected to Long Lake (all sports). Five minutes to two sandy Long Lake beaches and two boat launches. 3D Theater room, lower level entertainment area, hot tub, European steam sauna in master, workout equipment, and more all in a secluded private setting.

Home features central air conditioning, sleeps 10 comfortably with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths with 1 king, 2 queens and 2 trundle beds (4 twins). The king is on the main level and the remaining 3 bedrooms are on the lower level. The kitchen is fully stocked and features dishwasher, Keurig coffee maker, etc. The lower level has a huge entertainment room; play air hockey, ping pong and board games. Enjoy your own 3D theatre room with a 3D projector, plenty of movies to choose from, and all set up for Cable/DVD/Internet. Seating for the entire family, just bring your own popcorn. Cage weight-lifting equipment and elliptical machine are available for your use. The lower level walks out to the lakeside of the property.

The property sits on Ruth Lake with a dock. While not a swimming lake,it offers great canoeing or kayaking (easy to rent in this area, delivery available) and good fishing. You can portage through an opening and be on Long Lake. Don't feel like rowing? Stretch out and relax in the hot tub. Situated under tall trees, it makes for a great relaxing place to unwind. Enjoy grilling on the gas grill on the patio, and roast marshmallows in the bon fire area below.

This home is near Interlochen, Frog Pond and Interlochen Golf Course. (There is a set of golf clubs for guest to enjoy!) About 15 minutes to downtown Traverse City, centrally located to popular destinations, easily visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, voted one of the best summer trips in 2012 by National Geographic.
